A beer in a can is worth two in the bush...or something.
Black Note and Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. Yup this pairing kicks ass!
Found this guy while out of town earlier this weekend. Definitely a nice way to relax after a snowy Monday.
Just cracked this beauty up. 2009 verison. This ages so well. so smooth. The 11% is barely there. Sweet dark fruits notes are present and pretty balanced. There is some slight oxidation in there, as expected, but it adds to the brew and is not a negative at this point. Well done North Coast.

Brooklyn Brown Ale earlier.. Two Brothers Revelry right now.. Troegs Nugget Nectar and Mad Elf later.. cheers..
Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout
And now one of these:
Well, not only is the wax a bugger to remove, the beer itself is a bugger in a way. I drank it at close to room temp, wrote my review, and now...drinking the last, what, 6 oz, and it's tasting better than what I gave it in the taste dept of my review. I'll be knackered.
First time trying this one, and I was fortunate to get a hold of 2 of these bottles. Man is it good!
Picked up my first case of Nugget Nectar for this year.
One for the wife, and one for me. Cheers.
getting ready for fishing season while listening to a close friends nephew, enjoy!
Just a little something I call delicious.
Did prefer Everett though.
Time to open that lonely growler of Nelson.
Got down to the last sip before I could even take a picture. I've had Brownstone before, but am really enjoying it. I'm definitely a Sixpoint fan. 3Beans and Bengali in the fridge, but for another time. All for me tonight.
LOL. It comes as a big surprise that I liked what you're drinking.
How many Hopslams are too many?
6, I presently believe.
Some more Flying Dog Lucky SOB.
Having my first Victory at Sea while taking a midterm for my Graduate Business Law class. Thankfully the beer is amazing (best porter ever?) and it's taking the edge off. Cheers!
Found Kona Stout at Twin River Casino. Nit winning but taking clam cakes and chowdah home to the kids.
Fresh out of Lagunitas at the house, so I had to break in the new glass with something from California.
Just got this tonight as an extra and couldnt wait...this is excellent
Nuggets of Nectar!!
Wasn't going to drink tonight as I over imbibed at a tasting yesterday, but my new DFH/SN IPA glass showed up....I took that as a sign from the Beer Gods. Seems I've drank all my IPAs so I grabbed the only chilled DFH beer to christen the glass. Some may say it is an ugly glass, I think it is a sexy vessel. It is delicate though, to quote Will Smith I feel like I'm gonna break this damn thing. The ribbed base feels good in my hand.
As for the beer, not bad, much like the Stone 16th, not sure how much I dig lemon in my beer.
Off to watch The Walking Dead that I missed last night...Cheers all!
Cherry forward, and a little thin. Cheers!
And lastly, tonight, one of my first and still favorite Russian Imperial stouts:
Ah, yes... Old Rasputin
"The sea brings comfort, and the waves they talk. The sun shines on the water as it gently rises. You can see the face of God when you look at the sun. Your soul forgets everything as you wake from the dreams of life's worries. For the joy lifts your heart, and your soul sees the wisdom of life, and beauty. Indescribable beauty. Is the pain gone?"
also i'm drinking ballast point calico amber ale...delicious !
Boom goes the dynamite!
Buy this by the case, or drive around searching for Hopslam? Tough decision...not.
A couple more first time tries.
Started with a really good brown ale
Now drinking the best barleywine I've had yet
WTH - After a couple of SN Torpedo's with some pizza for dinner, came home and cracked open a DFH 120 IPA. Still drinking nicely. Doubt I can do much more, but maybe a Founders Porter to close the deal.
Mardi Gras week at the local Irish Pub, listening to some solid Irish music and enjoying an amazing beer.
I have it so hard.
