    Had both in the fridge and decided it was as good a night as any for a side by side. Hopslam wins for me, further confirming my love for malts even in IPAs.

    Nice, I'm not huge into barleywines most of the time but I'm really looking forward to this one. And kudos on the appropriate glassware! Did you post a review or write any notes? What do you think of it?

    Edit: nm, just saw your review. Sounds interesting, definitely looking forward to it.

    I haven't found either in my local stores. Picked both up on vacation on the west coast (of fl). Some reason the Miami stores don't seem to carry bells :-/

    The beer in the glass is a pale ale brewed with Cascade hops and 2 strains of Brett from Crooked Stave.

    The bottles are saisons aged in 50/50 wine/Jim Beam barrels. The big bottle is also fermented on sour cherries.

    Just got back from the Surly Pentagram release:


    I sincerely hope this stuff remains an annual release. It's right on par with Five, and eerily similar.

    Then I got tricked into having a Hopslam on my way home:


    Cheers BA!:)
