    So... by the second half of this bomber, I got kind of bored. So... on a whim, I popped a couple droppers of vanilla extract (why not? [zoidberg face]). so... actually kind of... worked? sort of? FUN TIMES

    I feel your pain, because living in Australia...I would never buy that beer.

    OK, enough of the alchemy (I wish [that was a heady topper joke {I wish I had access}]), now back to something I KNOW I enjoy, while stargazing on my roof and waiting for the long'd for sun to peep through the horns of the celestial ram:
    Red Chair NWPA time. Serious about the clambering up to the roof to invent my own constellations. I think I found spatula!!

    Ok, so I'm a few hours late. We had impromptu 11 o'clock beer night last night, and I may still be a little bit inebriated. Started with Barrel Aged Scotch Silly (wow). Then BCBCS, then Pretty Things Baby Tree, then Clown Shoes Angry Beast(wow), then Slumbrew My Better Half(imperial cream ale, wow!), then 21 st Amendment Lower de Boom Barleywine, the the new Mission Street 2013 Anniversary Ale from Trader Joes. Much coffee needed, snow blowing necessary, then back to work at noon. Hope I sober up by then.

    Been off work for a couple hours now, so I started with a Southern Tier Unearthly IPA and now I'm enjoying a "Enjoy by 03.26.13".....at least that's what it says on the side of my Stone IPA. Cheers!

    It's been raining all morning, so might as well cheer up with a 2011 BBCS from the cellar. Drinking like a cherry cordial - a lot of fruity, dark chocolatey goodness. By far, the best bang for the buck as far as imperial stouts go.

    Boss gave me today off because of all the damned snow-induced OT that I got earlier in the week.

    Hard to believe they cancelled the event I had today, an outside tent setup for a womens' walk across the Hudson. Mmmmm, homebrewed Oak Bourbon Barleywine.

    Gumballhead. Final one out of my six pack. :( This beer is infinitely better when poured... I almost always drink at least one of my beers from a six pack out of the bottle to see how it tastes.

    Unsurprisingly, the poured beer always tastes much, much better.

    Delicious beer tasting last night:

  27. Consider this an off-day for me. Trying to protect the ever-thinning wallet with a variety-pack of the horrid American Adjuncts - Bud Heavy, Coors, and PBR, with a Red Strip for a little "excitement." Did enjoy a 'vertical' tasting last evening, with the 2010, 2011, and 2012 varieties. Got another 2012 in cellar to taste with another 2011 in a year or so.

    Last one of these now. I liked it a lot more when I first had it, but now I'm a little more "meh" on it. Still a very good beer.

    It was as mediocre as I was expecting, and it was definitely the worst beer of the evening. I was underwhelmed by the Bacon Maple Ale, and I knew this one got bad reviews here, but I couldn't resist trying it. I hope they finally nail one of these sometime. I appreciate them at least trying.
  34. Earlier, recieved as part of the beer of the month club for February. Pretty solid and very drinkable, no complaints.
    Now sippin on some All Day IPA. Love that I can have a few of these without feeling even remotely buzzed.
