    LOL!! That reminds me of the "Tweak's Coffee" commercial on Southpark. (I wish I could find the video clip.)

    Racked a Dunkelweizen off the trub tonight, onto sweet orange peel and .5 oz cinnamon sticks that were sitting in 100ml vodka for a week

    This is a very good Baltic Porter. Well balanced and robust. I have certainly had my fair share of overly estery baltics.

    This is AWESOME. Almost a black IPA, with some big grapefruit, orange zest, and pine in the aromas; but still balanced. Huge robustness of flavor and full bodied; Lots of dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, citrus, rye, and light coffee. Fantastic. Appearance is perfect: giant 1-2 finger dense head with insane retention with thick soap on the side of the glass.

    Yet another Bourbon County Coffee, this one is an '11. We just spent hours re-sending a bunch of files that Ryland Homes lost, after receiving it. This only seemed right.

  17. 2008. Tons of pleasant oxidation and no fake chocolate taste. Very nice.

  23. It is honestly my favorite Barleywine, but I have noticed almost a 50/50 split where some stores have 1 case of PM and 2 cases BBW and others have 2 PM and 1 BBW.

    Ack! You were right. Please tell me it's an urban myth that people actually buy tickets and stand in line for this.
    I'm gonna go ahead and try to choke it down if only because it's the only bottle I'll ever have...

    Obviously you like really good beer and you went to your friend's house tonight and drank Bud w/o complaining, then scrubbed your palate down with good stuff when you got home. You get a fist pump for not being proud in front of your friend! :)

  27. Just home from work and I cracked my last flower power. Hope to find another fresh case soon. Too lazy to get a photo up tonight.

    Enjoy

  28. How was that mead? I have a bottle I picked up a few months ago that I have yet to crack. Never had mead before, so I'm excited to dive in..

    The night endings:

    Picked up a 4 pack last week. I haven't had this in far too long. So damn amazing. Unibroue is one of the most consistent breweries I know of. Seriously never been disappointed by a single offering.

    Still have over a half case left. YEAAA

    I'm not 100% it's OK to post the link in a thread? A lot of forums get very touchy about that. I have it on my profile page if you're interested.

    Alpine Bad Boy #3, after eating a six-egg omelette. I am less drunk.

    I was shaking hands with a Midwesterner the other day. I think I've got a pretty good handshake, but he kept screaming at me, "C'mon boy!!! Put your back into it!!!! ALL. DAY!"

    I've never had such performance anxiety. Bad Boy helps me forget.
