    Colts try as they might, but you can't win a game if you can't get a touchdown.

    Only B Nektar mead that I could fully taste the alcohol in was the Margarita Melomel. Burned all the way down. All the others I've had make you sneaky drunk.

    Pretty good, but I can't agree with those who say this is an adequate replacement for Westy.

    If that is a newer bottle, are you getting a lot of chili pepper from it?

    Hill Farmstead Twilight of the Idols. This was my first beer of 2013 after a nice mini cleanse to kick things off.
  9. How do you like that chocolate milk?

    Another one from my cellar, the waxed nightmare of a beer bottle from Grand Teton:


    2007 and it held up nicely though it isn't, as I guessed, something that I would send in a trade as an extra. Still, I think, it's better than what you can get these days in the 4 packs.
  12. At the moment, KBS and enjoying it.

    I'll start it by saying that Milk Stouts are not a style I generally enjoy. This though, is a roasty chocolaty treat. I'm enjoying this. Thanks!

    Just grab your Natty Ice & join us other losers in loserville. ( How bout my Cowboys ?) Take solace in a great run by your team & most likely a very bright future. I'd be willing to trade Luck for Romo:p

    It was a great run, with a great rookie QB. Honestly, none of us Colts fans thought we would be in this position this year. But coupled with the way Johnny Football tore my Sooners apart, it ain't been a good ending to the season.
  26. Hey quick question: do you have access to Avery Mephistopheles stout? And mmmmm

    Sipping on a somewhat fresh FBS (bottled August 2012). Pretty yummy, but fairly thin and watery in terms of the coffee flavor. There are more impressive coffee oatmeal stouts out there that are fairly low ABV, i.e. Beer Geek Breakfast.

    He's the least of our problems, to be honest, but you can't fire the owner.

    Plowing through my Christmas gift haul continues. Saving the better ones for last. This one tastes a little off/sour.

    I expected the OU Defense would get schooled, hoped our O would some how keep up. OU fans will get get to appreciate Landry Jones next year, I'm betting

  35. I am glad to see this comment but I will say this: I respect all sports team but when it comes to the one's I follow or love, the Cowboys have been one of the best teams of the past generation and in the one of 90's. I do NOT condone these rivalries but rather I seek to want to keep the sportsmanship much alive in the game.
