    Pretty good for the style. Score here on BA is a tad low, imo.
  2. Going with only first-try brews tonight - never had any of the brews I picked up today. Starting off with crown valley's big bison ale. Got crown valley's gunslinger DIPA, gulden draak 9000, Samuel smith Yorkshire stingo, Fort Collins double chocolate stout, and the artist formerly known as barbar de Noel, now just barbar bock. Pumped for a night of new brews. Cheers!

    Just had a Greenbush Anger on tap and a bottle of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. Lighting was bad so no pic, but really enjoyed both beers.

    Thanks... got it at the Bulldog when visiting New Orleans. On Wednesdays, you keep the pint glass. The other side has the bar logo, but i was pretty smitten with the 5% phrase.

    I drank a Kuhnhenn Blueberry Eisbock, Rapsberry Eisbock, a Michigan Mud, a BB4D, and half of the new barleywine. Luckily it took 6 hours. :)

    Old ales rule.
    I've been drinking more than my fair share lately - lots of Thomas Hardy and Fuller's Vintage ales (and last week, some North Coast Old Stock, too) - and its been quite some time since I had a Founders Curmudgeon, the very first old ale I ever tried.

    So how does it stack up against the big boys from Britain?
    (*sips*)... damn. How do they do it?

    Now don't get me wrong, the Thomas Hardy 2008 and the Fullers 2011 Vintage have years on them - and its hard to compete with that, but the Founders 2012 Curmudgeon manages to be right there.

    Unbelievably good old ale.

    Just cracked some more to share with the wife - old picture because my camera died. Honestly all the bottle dates on mine are smeared, the batch number came out fine, but the bottle date is smeared.

    The Brandy Barreled Quad blew me away, I would love to try that. I really enjoyed the original version of the Dubbel a couple years back when I got to try it.

    Just got back from the bar where I had a Funkwerks Bastogne and a Ommegang Art of Darkness. My two favorite American brewers who do Belgian style beers. Win.

    That's cool- they really do have to work on that date stamper; I've seen other reports of the same type smearing.
