    KBS, because the B stands for breakfast. Cheers
  3. Home from work and decided to finally crack this open. I received an invite to the Quarterly Blackjack Invitational at Black Bear Casino, because I won the weekly tournament twice. I believe I am still the only person to do so. For those tournaments first place is $2100, but this one is $10000. Also the food is amazing, and you can't go wrong with free drinks for a few hours. I was going to try to take a nap, but I'm too excited. Time to run through some more numbers while I enjoy this.

    Love the sentiment. And the beer ain't terrible, neither.

    Ale aged in oak barrels

    Wine-like and woodsy barrel notes in this sour saison-eqsue wild ale featuring brett and fungal funk, bread and biscuit grains, and tart orchard and vine fruits. My favorite "American Wild Ale" to-date.

    Not a bad way to start the day: strong, at 9.6% abv...

    Ok y'all! It's Sunday and I love sunday. Cheers BA and last night I had the Syracuse game to watch so I mad eone of my favorite game day snacks. Stuffed mini peppers. It's too easy. Brown rice, hot italian sausage, onion and parmesan. Went great with my sweet and spicy wings and rounded out a pub style meal because they contain rice and I served these with a salad too. This all went famously with Dogfish Head Aprihop. The beer was delightful with these dishes. I did not review the beer until today because it's new beer sunday. WooHoo!

    I loooove Arctic Devil - Sucaba and BCBBW get a lotta the attention, but as @ao125 once said,
    "Arctic Devil is like crack."

    But then, whaaat? - didn't even crack (;)) one open - went for my last bottle of Hopslam instead...

  37. You may want to hit play now - this may take a while...


    *WARNING* - the following is a recap of last night's EPIC bottle share at @MRC711 's place.
    You may want to shield any younger BA's eyes....

    And so it began...

    Growler is BA Silhouette

    Then the big guns came out to play :eek::eek::eek:

    After some kick ass ribs, Mark pulled out this 20yr Port wine for dessert
    [​IMG]

    And just for good measure Mark pulls out this from the depths of his cellar...
    [​IMG]

    Everything went off without a hitch until we got to the Apple Brandy Hunah.
    That's when my trusty bottle opener decided to throw in the towel from all of the abuse...
    [​IMG]
    Good thing Mark had a replacement handy :cool:

    *Forgot to take a photo of a 2009 Fuller's Vintage Ale and the 750 of XV - V225 Saison

    In attendence: Myself, @Mplsmetro57 @GopherPharmer @striker2160 @MRC711 and @moneynoobject .
    Late arrivals: Alicia (thanks for bringing the Prop!;)) and Vince

    Thanks for hosting Mark!
    And thanks to Lori for letting us go later than we had planned.

    Everyone was surprised how well BA Silhouette held up with the big guns, and was in all of our top 3.

    My top 5 (actually 8)

    1 Tie: Double Barrel Hunah (thanks for the trade @markgugs) & Exponential Hoppiness
    2. BA Silhouette - Trade for this - you will not be disappointed (NO you can't have my last one!)
    3. Leon
    4. Tie: Assassin & BCBCS
    5. Tie: Brandy Hunahpu & Proprietor's BCBS

    It's crazy to think that Everett, Better Half and Blue Mountain Speedway are on the bottom of any list at a bottle share.
    Also, we've all had Prop multiple times, or it may have finished higher (maybe)

    Sorry for the long post, but my com-padres insisted!
    Hope I didn't break anything...lol

    And oh yeah....drinking some strong coffee at the moment.:cool:
