It's a Marshall kind of night.
Right now drinking Cigar City Winter Warmer vintage from 2011. It so good when its hits the lips!
Damn great stuff IMO ...
First time having this, BA has it listed 8.75% but the bottle says 10%. I'm a sucker for numbered bottles and it's corked and caged.
Watching the "next" Bond movie to Skyfall and drinking this! I give props to anybody that knows this Bond movie.
The holidays seemed quite mad this year, so this seems to fit the bill today...
Saint Arnold Sailing Santa!
Drinkin' a GI Fleur.
Watching The Other Guys.
2011 anchor christmas, should have drank this yesterday but hey.. fuck rules!
Birth of Tragedy from Hill Farmstead
The brewery's barrel-aged version of their annual winter porter (Twilight of the Idols)
An Imperial Porter brewed with locally roasted coffee and Vermont honey, then aged for more than six months in oak Bourbon barrels.
Here's a nice boring top view of another schlafly ESB...
And some tunes...
Ommegang Aphrodite. Quite the balance between a sweet lambic and a proper sour
Me and Spiddy sharing The Deuce
Great song choice!
Onto the best of the night!!
Keeping the Scotch ale theme going. This has always been my favorite, but the Scotty Karate may take that honors.
Gotta get me some Yeti!
I have yet to try any variation of it... espresso oak aged sounds glorious.
Had another Mirror Pond (Super drinkable. I think this would make a great gateway beer. But it swould still be one of those brews you go back to, even after your palate has been spoiled by double dry hopped bourbon barrel aged smoked barleywines brewed with a belgian yeast lol.) Once again capping off the night with a Brooklyn Black Chocolate. (The eight bucks I spent I this 4pk is the best money I've spent on beer in a long time.)
Bring out the gimp ...
Goose Island Sofie, easily one of my favorite saison/farmhouse ales, good intro beer for someone who's just getting their toes wet with Belgians.
Goose Island boy cotters, I respect your views, but damn I can't be giving up something like this. Only a year old and its got some of that light funk in the nose with a great classic saison profile. Love this stuff. As long as the quality stays I keep coming back.
I will continue buying vintages of the three sisters wild ales too. So delicious
La Fin Du Monde
Tryin the black butte xxiv. Says best after 07/12/13, but I go two bottles. Tastes great now, I can't wait to see what it tastes like in a year. I might have to get another bottle or two to hold longer.
Went to 3F with my best (non-wife) friend and had Alpha Klaus and Dreadnaught, got introduced to Scaldis Noel and Rogue Dead Guy back at his place, and capped the night with BCBCS. God, I love the Chicago area.
Scotty Karate/Dirty Bastard showdown. It was a tough call, but after further evaluation, my personal winner is:
Hotter than Helles Gallon growler
Trader Joe's Providential Belgian Style Golden Ale
He'Brew Jewbelation Sweet 16
California edition? I really like it. Imagine some age on it.
Because it is delicious?
Did you happen to have an old/bad bottle perhaps?
How was this? I had never seen it before but when I went to pick up my 2012 Vintage Ale it was there and I grabbed it but haven't opened it yet.
Nope - I checked the bottle and it had a drink by April 2013 date on it.
