Burton is one of the most underrated year round beers around!
This beer should be put under arrest for criminal battery to my palate! SPICE, SWEET FRUIT, AND SOUR PINEAPPLE
Enjoying 2006, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11 and 12 (not shown) at a tasting.

Good lookin out Joey! "Funny thing about weekends when you're unemployed...they don't mean quite so much." Cheers!
I had one from 06 not to long ago and I enjoyed it. Wasn't crazy boozy . I have a few from 11 I'll crack one and get back to ya lol
Goose Island Coffee Stout
Watched a hoops game with a guest who had shown interest in the Belgian styles; split Rochefort 10 and
Great Divide Grand Cru bomber bottled 1/13/11 ( seemed sweet after the Quad) but as palate adjusted turned very good.
About to switch gears with Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout & TCU v MSU.
To start my night off.
GI Big John... part of me would love to see this put into a barrel. It would be GI's Chocolate Rain.
No photos tonight, I'm at the in-laws house. Enjoying a victory at sea and a lagunita's sucks. 2 very different but equally awesome beers!
I am epicly (Yeah, it's a word now. deal with it) jealous of this.
Working through an all Surly lineup tonight:
This is it for me tonight. Cheers all!
I guess as long as it takes Hoppin' Frog to come out with a boris the spider. What world do you live in?
New IPA Saturday
I'm a huge, huge fan of that beer. Really tasty.
I'm trying some Newport Storm Vlad (Russian Imperial Stout.) This is actually a pleasant surprise. Very good stuff here. Great representation of the style.
I started earlier tonight with a Stoudts Fat Dog, spend some time watching tv with my parents, of whom go to bed really early, I then had a philly Pale ale, and now onto a smuttynose IPA. I love east coast Ipa's. I might have to ship some back to La after the holidays.
Harpoon UFO White and Upland Schwarz. Black and white beer!
What it is BA. A good friend and I opened these tonight.
Good times. Cheers!
Moved on to Wake-n-Moo myself. W-n-B>W-n-Moo>Moo Hoo IMHO. I agree that W-n-B is so delicious.
I can't call it, the dark roastyness or the absurd hoppy side. Its a winner either way.
Welcome back! Still cheering for OKC Thunder?
Sshhh don't tell anyone.
SN Celebration while watching the snow fall here in MA. FBS in a bit before I catch some Z's.
Greetings and Salutations BA Baracus-heads!
Checking in with;
Captain Lawrence Winter Ale = alright
Enjoy by 12.21.12 = still good but somehow different
Ithaca Flower Power = solid
FW Union Jack = equally solid
Maine Brewing Co. King Titus = best beer I've had all night, very nice!
Captain Lawrence Winter Ale. It's okay. Not excited to have another 5, but not bothered either. A little stoned.
Heard someone say they put on Big Hoppy Monster and it piqued my interest since it's retired. Asked the bartender about it, "i dunno it's an IPA". Turned out to be the 2012 Oaked version. It's quite tasty. I gushed over it and told him what it was, and suggested he try it--he took a sample and said it was too intense.
Your secret is safe with me. I might crack one open tomorrow night. I've never tried it and I have extremely high hopes.
How is it?
If they didn't, you're doing it wrong.
Paired with jalapeno, red onion and creole pizza... it's good.
I have a 2011 waiting for me. I can't wait to try this.
Hop Stoopid tonight.
Alpine Duet>Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier>Black Albert...
Now I'm drinking 2011 Sierra Nevada Celebration. Me brother in law had one of these sitting in his refrigerator since Christmas eve last year (that I brought over) and I decided to take it back. Not exactly fresh of course, but its sweet. Of course I probably should have waited till another night since I just had DFH Raison D'Extra. Which brings me to me next point, I'm getting quite buzzed.
I have some good stuff warm and Mama Mia Pizza Beer (also just sitting around for months) in the fridge. I think tonight I finish off the beers I've been meaning to get rid off, might as well go with the Pizza.
Didn't care for the Black Albert?
