    Decided to open my bottle of Jester King/Mikkeller Weasel Rodeo. No head which surprised me. But the taste is awesome lots of coffee and chocolate with a lil smokey spice at the end of it. Wouldn't mind trying the barrel aged version. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/24018/84150
  2. English style barleywine with honey malt. Woah!!

    Another cherry popper tonight. Not my fave, a little more bitter after taste than I prefer

    First reply decides: SA Winter Lager, Sorachi Ace, or I run to the store for Yuengling cans. I've already had 2 pitchers of Yuengling.
  10. Here come the spring ales. This is actually better than I would have thought.


    And for the Golden Globes I am wearing a BeerAdvocate shirt by Gildan.

    I just got home after being out and about all day. I'll probably only have time to drink one beer tonight, so I figured I would make it count. Thanks to SanFranJake for this one!

    Hey Seb, I was planning to BM you after drinking it. Now that I'm into it, many thanks. Fantastic coffee, vanilla and whiskey. Let me know when you thaw out and we'll work on another go around. Cheers!
  13. Better than I remember...It has been sometime since I have grabbed this one myself. I tend to stick with the more West Coast style APA/IPA's but this was nice and I would def have again. Far from worst of the year IMO lol

  15. First ever Founders Imperial Stout. It did not disappoint.

    From the Cascade website:
    " Damage related to the weather and climate during shipment is NOT the responsibility of Cascade Brewing or the common carrier".
    I am sure its 50 during the day in Portland but right now unless the weather channel is telling lies, it is 31 deg. in Portland and someones beer is freezing on a truck and i know it is not mine. Seems foolish to take a chance on losing a few hundred dollars in sours that will not be insured. I appreciate the info on the Vlad, i will for sure grab a few. Cheers!

    Wolavers Alta Gracia Coffee Porter

    A great beer if you want a FBS without the calories and ABV.

    Brilliant beer and at 5% ABV, perfect for anytime

    Hmm, I'm surprised they don't guarantee safe shipment (seems out of character). We've had a cold front come through that has stuck around for about a weak, but it is not normal by any means. Next weak we are back to normal temps (mid 40's - mid 50's). I've lived here for almost 30 years, it is rare that we ever see bellow freezing temps here. 5% ABV freezes at 28° F and a 10% ABV freezes at 25° F, most of Cascades beers average around 8% ABV. I'm not trying to tell you what to do, just sharing the info with you.
