    I am revisiting a local brewery that often gets overlooked out here, Hangar 24. I am currently enjoying their DIPA while trying to watch the most lop-sided BCS bull shit bowl game ever.The game sucks, this beer does not.

    samuel smith's organic chocolate stout... with, of course, a pecan brownie cookie

  16. Big coffee at the nose.

    Taste- Lots of bakers chocolate but the coffee taste is not over powering. Well balanced and delightful. The vanilla beans are rather mild but I'm not complaining. I've just been wanting for that vanilla punch in the face that I got from BCBVS. That was awesome.

    I would definitely buy up as much as you can. Really glad I have a couple to send as extra's in my next two trades. And share another with the boys at home.

    Drinking a KBS 12' and diggin it. Strangely, I'm getting a little bit of a cough syrup taste on the finish I haven't experienced with KBS before. Not saying its bad, just not like the last one

    Wow, that is way more carbonation than any bottle I have opened. Most of mine have been pretty much "dead".

    This is surprisingly tasty despite being so big on the ABV. I'm sharing this one with my roommate.

    Honestly, my fingers are crossed that my very good friend Kapron does not have a serious injury. Hope that ND pulls something out here, but would rather see him without injury.

    Enjoying a Founders Breakfast Stout. Not enjoying the game. If I coached in the SEC, I'd have few waters to rest up for a big glass of stout at the end of the night, then brag about how big the stout I drink is.

    And yes I am bitter. ND is getting plain outplayed, and I hate the automaton coaching the Tide.
