Amazing beer! Just below BCBS in my book!
a growler of Keene Idea from Alpine Beer Co.
Schlafly Christmas Ale...listening to The Who Quadrophenia and watching Baylor and UCLA. Pretty good Christmas week I'd say.
Great Lakes Blackout Stout
Printed on the bottle "for freshest taste, please enjoy by: 08/03/09"
This is one of the last couple of beers left from the lot of Imperial stouts I bought back in late 2008 when I first turned 21 and discovered imperial stouts. I put a way quite a few Blackouts, Expeditions, and Yeti's that year along with some of the first barley wine's I tried which were Horn Dog and Bigfoot. I have been drinking them slowly since and for the most part have concluded I like imperial stouts better fresh or within a year. That said this is my favorite of the three with some age on it. In fact I love this beer both fresh and with age.
Maine Zoe. Good stuff.
I'm thoroughly enjoying this...
Now onto a Schell's Snowstorm 2012:
Having some Kriek '12 before bed...
Baylor vs. the most inconsistent team in football.
hopefully Mizzou follows Baylor's lead and smacks around the Bruins in hoops tomorrow.
polished off a bottle of cantillon 100% bio and Stillwater love and regret... both were pretty solid, the latter an unexpectedly herb-forward dark Saison... although I should come to expect these things from stillwater.
I will always absolutely love that movie, no matter what I actually think of Taratino.
I'm having Saint Arnold Christmas Ale right now. I'm too lazy to take a picture.
Having the second half of a Double-Double Barrel Ale (first half was last night). I'm not a huge barleywine guy, but this shit is pretty good.
It's true. My store just received four-packs this afternoon!
Agreed! I hope the Tigers are on tomorrow night. I was at the Bragging Rights game Saturday night. Tomorrow in LA will be a challenge.
So glad I found more of this!
First and last tonight. Very nice.
Is Step 2 Duvel? That might help fight the addiction

Beginning the evening with an old standby.
Goin Belgian tonight!
Accept is one of the most underrated metal bands from Germany.
this years batch is way better than last years. i'd put this up against BCBS any day, no joke. really delicious.
That looks good.
Now Drinking This: One of the best Texas Barleywines - Real Ale Sisyphus
Now Jamming This:
Had one last night and the extra six months they aged it for this time really made it much better than previous batches! I can't agree with the better than BCBS but it is very very good!
Went to Strand Brewery today n had a real super tasty Bagheera(pocure a coconutty n semi sweet celebration) and a Black Sand DIPA
Now having this
definitely much better than previous batches. not sure if its better than BCBS but i'd put it in the same discussion for sure. cheers!
This is really nice. After the past few barleywines ive had i have come to the conclusion that i dont love English barleywines like i thought i did. Barrel Aged english barleywines? Oh, i love them.
Ill stick with american barleywines though if there is no barrel treatment.
Also, this has a bit of a cherry note to it? Im only a few sips in so im not sure how i feel about it but whatevs.
Cheers ladies and gentlemen!
On my first of my last two Perry's.
Strand is outstanding.
Finishing with this.
U a local?
I'm not the picture taking guy at a brewery. But I had a great time at:
GreenBush - hit a couple stouts
Shoreline - hit a OK, oatmeal stout and a out of this world 2009 Lost Sailer Imperial stout
Hit figure 8 for there black corridor!
Damn fine night!
Barleywine is my my favorite style and I really enjoyed that beer and had completely written that brewery off until I had that beer. It really blew me away and I was hoping the same for you.
Thanks to Nicolay3535 for an awesome trade yesterday. finally got to try this and wow what a great brew!
Calumet Queen..... for starters.
