  1. If you needed funds, you could have just asked for a donation from the BA community...no need to settle for ugly women, ramen noodles, or bad beer.

    thats the best part!
  8. This one is goin' down, now:


    Short's definitely nailed this one a bit more than Sam Adams Maple Pecan Porter, but honestly, both are winners. I think the Sam Adams one *may* edge Short's in straight Maple Pecan aroma, but Short's has it in terms of taste.

    yeah, it's really enjoyable. I had been drinking a lot of Narwhal recently, and I loved it, but this stuff is better.
  11. Sounds like a reasonable plan. ;)

    The way I see it, beer is like sex even when it's bad it's still good...same with ramen.

    So do some people steam bottles to bring the labels off or is that crazy talk?

    Done coding today. Beer time: Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA.


    Last one. Need to get more.

    my first sierra nevada narwhal.

    definitely an above average beer. if you can get founders imperial stout in bulk, there's not much reason to buy narwhal. other than that it's fantastic.

    reviewed the beer, then added a splash of woodford reserve. predictably made the beer even better. heed my advice: sierra nevada beer (especially celebration, and now narwhal) + a splash of woodford reserve = some serious stuff.

  30. I can't speak for st9647v3 but, I like Barleys and really enjoyed this one. In fact, went back to Victory to buy more bottles. (Just my 2 cents.) Buy at least two bottles (or more), one to drink now and one to age. I've had the Red Thunder, liked that also and committed some to my cellar for aging.

    if you just know it from the trash talk on BA, black xantus is probably the most underrated beer in the world.

  32. I have 2-3 of these in the cellar. I've had it fresh 1-2 times. I loved it. But I hear all these amazing things about how this thing ages. I get so tempted to pop a bottle. Patience is hard. But it seems it will payoff!

    Yeah I basically forgot about the 4 pack that I stashed away a year ago. Found them today and figured I'd open one for "scientific purposes" I'm so glad I did, tastes awesome with a year on it.
