    Decent winter warmer. Smells pretty good, tastes pretty bland; but is not cloyingly sweet.

    Seeing as yesterday was Blue Sunday(according to NHBC FB), I broke out the 2012 bottle. Good sour! Very oaky with nice tart fruit notes, leather, grass, hay, pepper, clove, funk etc. Typical stuff that is tasty.

    probably a fresh Hopslam next

    Cheers

  6. Now that's a creative way to get rid of some of the older stuff in the fridge and make them more interesting, never thought about doing that before.

    Oak aged Yeti. Quality. You would be hard pressed to find a more satisfying stout in my neck of the woods.

    LOL ...

    Unequal parts due to consumption. An American Black Ale, Coffee Stout, winter seasonal IPA, last bottle of Boston Lager, rye IPA, balanced DIPA ... one or two more to make their way. That is all I am giving up.

    Works great for hoppy beers ... the few that you may have that lost their edge but mixed with something else it is greatness. I love hoppy dark beers as well so it is all good there.

    Love to mix sour / wild beers with more traditional Triples and Dubbels ... balance a drinkability can be insane.

    A true proprietor never reveals his recipe for success.

    Sounds delicious!

    heavy handed, prima pils, lucky bucket lager, zombie dust, hibernation ale, smuttynose finest kind, narwhal, homebrew. :)

    OMW to three flloyds for the first time in about 18 hours.... very excite. All purchases almost totally promised to florida, maine, mass, carolina, and california. Glad to be able to spread the BA love.
     
  13. I'm going to try that because I have some old stuff that needs to be cleared out of the fridge and right now they're equivalent to drain pours (I've been too lazy to dump 'em).

    Yamar, on the surface, his mix sounds kinda horrific. But upon further review and contemplation, it sounds kinda good.

    Drinking some Traquair Jacobite

    Listening to some Bill Evans


    I think this is my favorite Evans live album. Eddie Gomez is amazing on base. Better than Scott LaFaro IMO.

    Anyway, love me some Jacobite. Really one of the most unique beers I think I have ever had, still after all these years.

    How does the arcadia stack uo against the ba boris? boris is one of my faves, and we just got in the arcadia today... dunno if worth it to pull the trigger.

    OK, I just went half and half with an Optimator and a Torpedo. Sounds horrible, eh? Not so fast, my friends. Malt plus hops equals...very interesting. Don't knock it till you've tried it. Might just be the wave of the future. or not...dunno.

    I like the Boris better. IMO the arcadia was to much over the top. Boris has a nice balance of taste and alcohol which works well. Paid $7 for the arcadia bottle, love tasting something I've never had but would pic the Boris hands down.

    No doubt. This years Bourbon Barrel Stout is excellent. Their base beer is lower abv when compared to other BA brews e.g. BCBS. Infection is much more likely to happen with an ingredient like cherries.
