  1. Definitely worth 20. It's a super awesome sour that isn't at all sweet, which I love. The rye notes really only come through on the nose, I really couldn't taste it at all. All in all a great beer.

    Good old Iceburn... My first "underground" show, in the basement of a building that was about to fall over.

    All the RIS barrel aging beers we have been brewing have our reserves of "employee beer" dangerously f'ng low so thank goodness for brothers!:)

    Just finished a Ballast Point Sculpin IPA and getting ready to dive into a fresh Victory Hop Devil.

    Bigfoot 2012 and 2013 vertical with a friend. And the vertict is....


    2012. Much sweeter, more caramel. Smells better. Hops have almost all faded but it tastes like liquid candy now but still kinda boozy and a little hoppy. Both are great beers.

    Had my first Blithering Idiot after a glass washing session. Very good barleywine, actually enjoyed it more than this years version of Insanity. Followed up with a Zombie Dust at dinner. Finishing up with a Peruvian Morning and some chocolate. Life is Good!

    drinking my brewing partner's holiday beer, special version. it's a riff on a free form recipe i wrote a few years ago that's basically a belgian influenced imperial stout.

    his current version is a lot more belgian (dropped my beloved special B malt, but switched out my beloved 1728 scottish ale yeast with a belgian abbey strain, and added date syrup), and is aged on oak cubes with bulleit bourbon added. love bulleit. resulting beer is sweet, complex, with some nice roasted barley flavor highlighting everything (used perfect amount IMO). dropped the oats/oatmeal entirely, but the mouthfeel is still good.

    great stuff.

    Tonight:

    Very nice stuff. Nicely robust for a 5.5% brew, and very balanced roasted flavors. Oyster flavor really isnt that strong. Really enjoyed this.
    [​IMG]

    This is excellent Scotch ale as expected. Great complexity and balance of malt flavors. Meantime is completely underrated as a brewery.
    [​IMG]

    Still got half a case. Having some in a bit.
