    So my boss made me buy a beer from his favorite brewery to use on my blog. I did because a) he's just tickled that we finally have something to talk about and b) because he pays me.

    I am SO glad that he doesn't actually read anything I write because this was the foulest thing I have every drank. Hands down.

    Thanks - Greg, R.I.P. :( We have a bunch of his stuff on video/iTunes/DVD/(blah format) wife and I have watched them all multiple times over and still laugh as hard as the first time. He is missed by many and (IMO) ranks right up there as one of the best.

    Yep, blame that cookie on my kids; anything with alot of sugar in it they hoard which isn't much different than their dad except it's in a can or bottle as opposed to a wrapper. (!!!) I was a little taken back in the beginning at how bold it is but as I get half way through everything starts to blend and the porter aspects starts to come through more, in the beginning it comes across more as a stout. It's definitely an interesting beer and I wish I had more than just this one can. Surprisingly, for 10%, the alcohol, though detectable in the beginning (just a little), overall is well hidden (which could be dangerous if you're not careful). It's definitely worth a try. :) I agree with Hanzo's comments from the other day, this Sixpoint ranks as one of my favorites from them as well.

    I like hops in my B-wines, so I started with this deliciousness....


    ....and then I remembered I also like Beer in my Bourbon, so I poured this one-


    Finishing the night w/ a Big Eddy Baltic Porter, but cant get off the couch for a pic. It's good!

    Definitely agree. I thought what was interesting about it was how un-stoutlike it really is. I didn't know what to expect and don't have much experience with Baltic Porters, but I figured a 10% ABV dark beer brewed with coffee and chocolate was probably going to be very stout-y. In some ways, it is, but in a lot of other ways it was very different—but still plenty tasty in its own right. Very interesting beer, and very tasty.

    But I still want to see Sixpoint put a proper imperial stout in a can . . . as well as a saison (lookin' at you, Harbinger).

  23. 2012. This gets such a love/hate following. I will say that the first time I had it (2010) I loved it!! It turned me on to the Flanders/Ode Buin style. This batch, not so much. I feel this is a little thinner than I like. It could be my palate though.

    After running on very little sleep or food for 5 days, I've decided to crack a growler of Alpine Bad Boy.


    Let's see what happens.

    I wish I could give you a point of reference. :( I bought it at a place in Columbus, OH when traveling through coming back to PA. I checked Breckenridge's website and it looks like they don't have it available, unfortunately. If it's any help, it's the Small Batch 471 glass.

    I just started reading the Darkness vs Dark Lord thread. I might need to get something else on deck in case this doesn't work out.
