    Was going to listen to some Viking metal, but thanks to bstyle's post, decided some ska was the right direction for the evening.

  10. 12 months in oak compared to six in last year's makes a world of difference! Loved both beers, but I believe I have found a new love. Sorry, Bourbon County. Pack your bags...

    I waited a little after Christmas to have this since I was visiting the parents but damn, what was I waiting for? Delirium Noel poured in 330 ml Noel snifter, great tasting Belgian Dark, although a little lighter than expected for this style but still really really good.

  35. Drinking Boulevard's Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale. Its very solid, but hardly wowing. I wish the mouthfeel was thinner and that it was more funktastic!
     
  36. I was in a ska band for all of I'd say a week in high school. I was the only bassist they knew. I took lessons to learn jazz and ended playing punk and hardcore, so my style was a bit odd. That whole hodge podge of musicians was such a cluster. Haha
