    My wife and I shared a bottle of this. It just tasted like a normal porter or maybe a milk stout to me. I liked it, but I literally got zero coffee/cappuccino notes from it.

    Yeah, it does drink way thinner than a typical stout and the coffee has fallen off a big deal since November. I still can taste a bit coffee, kind of like a mocha cappuccino but not over powering at all. I just love the value, $4.99 a bomber where something like 3beans is $3.50 12oz ($3.99 at store who jack up their singles). So if you want the caffeine/booze buzz, this is a cheap date.

    Fresh, the wine has subdued the sour a bit. Tasting great.
  6. Picked up a 40 of this just for kicks. Pretty rough. Was OK when it was super ice cold 20 minutes ago, now the last few sips are a struggle.
    Probably have a SNPA and then call it a night.
  7. I think Rex wants a little Racer 5.

    Just felt like a porter night, even if it doesn't really go with cedar plank-smoked wild Alaskan red salmon and stuffed crabs.

    Great beer, indeed. I could really go for one of those right about now.

    Finally picked up the first sixer of the year, bottled on 1/30. Some pretty delicious stuff. Good to see this is all over this forum it's drinking pretty well right now.

    Snapped this pic seconds after pour. So glad this is only bottle one and I have 23 left. This is an amazing BA BW!

    I just checked the bottle, says best by March. So its not terribly fresh. I did like the beer, it just didn't blow me away. Maybe I will have to trade for another batch that I know is more fresh. I have local access to Zombie Dust, so I think I'd rather grab one of those over this beer. But I'm happy to have had a chance to try Flower Power.

    As someone who has his beer pics photobombed by cats regularly, be prepared for an unusual amount of likes.

    Oh! More Mad Mex fun.

    Before I ordered my growlers, the dude asked if I wanted anything else. After two hours of ordering craft, I squinted at the draft board and said "Could I get a growler of...the Miller Lite 'Triple Hop Brewed' Lager'?"

    His face was priceless. "Miller Lite? ...Okay...I could....you..." I couldn't keep a straight face anymore and told him I was joking. He said he was going to be pretty upset if he had to fill a growler of Miller. Fun stuff. We had a few more good jokes about it and he said next time we're in he'll bring us two Millers, on the house, so I said we're never coming back.

    An awesome person hooked me up with a bottle of this. Being pretty new to the craft beer scene, I never would have thought I would have had the opportunity to drink this so soon. Perfect ending to a cold winter's night with my girlfriend:
