    Just poured my 2nd wake-n-hoo or moo bake, whatever you want to call it. Hoping this will take the pain away from a day of shoveling snow.


    Same picture as before.

    Now onto St. Bernadus Tripel and definitely realize my nose is starting to fail. Totally amazed at the massize differences in flavor profiles from one to the next. So far this one is the most spice forward and then the fruit comes in and then in the end back to a spicy twang. What a great night so far and by far I am becoming a fan of the tripel craze.

    Good evening BAs! Starting off with my last Smitten. Definitely one I'll pick up again next year to cure the winter doldrums. This isolated drum track from John Bonham is sweet. Cheers all!

    2010 Abyss. I wanted to verify my initial impressions, but now I know, for me, the 2011 and 2012 vintages are a step behind.

    Perhaps the closer:
    This is great, don't get me wrong. However, this is my lease favorite of Tyranena's imperial porters and was hoping for greater spice. It was this or 3Beans and I've got some remorse.

    I had nothing but great beer tonight, fucking good night

    Excellent BSPA! Nice complexity with some big peppery esters with great complexity of fruitiness.

    First time having a Summit, I'm impressed. This is a great IPA. Lots of citrus and tropical hops with a nice malt balance.

    Great Coffee Stout. Aromas were huge, the taste wasn't nearly as huge; but this was still delicious.

    Holy damn this is awesome. Tons of fruity and tropical hop complexity and malt balance; and super smooth to sip on. I need some Boulevard in MI distro pleeease.

    Have a great night guys!

  32. Almost done with a 1/6 barrel keg of Denoggonizer and it's still not boring and at 2 months old its still a fruity hop bomb.

    Im in one of those moods. My songs have been:
    Georgia Satellites, Eddie Money, Michael Stanley Band, and Free. I see Foreigner and Bad Company coming soon.

    But I got inspired by them. I grabbed a tall boy from my fridge (now that was a 19.2 oz Dale's brewed in Brevard, NC of course), and Im drinking it straight from the can. Because thats what Michael Stanley would do.

    Bell's Smiiten ( Much like a few others before me tonight ), alright, was hoping this would match up to Red's Rye, it did not...

    Tall Grass Buffalo Sweat with Vanilla Beans next...
