  1. Working from home today and heard a knock at the door. Fedex man dropped a box. I checked it and it was a delivery from my BA friend SammyJaxxxx. Inside was an array of awesome beers. As I loaded them into my fridge, with the full intention of going right back to work, I noticed that the bottles were all chilled (from the frosty weather in RI today). They weren't tremendously cold, but a good temp for a stout....say a stout like Terrapin Moo Hoo which was in the box...."Hmmmm," I thought.

    Alas, I caved.

    My first Moo Hoo and I love it. Thanks again Sammy Jaxxxx! This was a very generous gift and I very much appreciate it, you're a true BA!

    PS: I can't believe I am starting one of these threads, hooray day-drinking!

    The best beer I have ever had, not even close.
    Looks awesome, smells unbelievable, and tastes like 90s Jennifer Aniston.
     

  3. I am glad to hear that, as I enjoyed that beer tremendously as well (and I have been seeing a lot of folks wizz on it for not being a face-punching-IPA).

    Cheers!

    It's really not at all like the label says, but I say WHO CARES to them. Takes it for what it is and not what it says it is.

    ...and it is a damn fine beer.
     
  5. It tastes like a 43 year old woman that was cast off by Brad Pitt?
     
  6. Looks like I'm not the only one.

    1990s Jennifer Aniston.

    Also, the burps taste like a mouth full of tastifulness.

    First time for this weissbier. It is an ok beer. Sort of thin and the clove and banana is there, but doesn't burst through like others.

    I couldn't hold out any longer. Drinking a Nugget Nectar thanks to the generousity of a great BA Gengle.
    Cheers to you Gengle!!!!!!
    Sorry No picture. There is too much going on here to start taking pics of beer.

    While I would love to be listening to Ron & Fez while I am enjoying this wonderful brew, I am stuck listening to a client rattle on an on about how the world is unfair.

    I would be happy to help her get over it...

    On this crappy New England weather day, the plan is Celtics vs. Hornets and a L'il Sumpin' Sumpin' goin' on...but I have a GI Christmas Ale in the way of the milk carton...be a shame to have to drink both...to make space, you know.
     
  16. I hope you aren't a psychologist drinking during a session (although deep down I giggle at the thought)

    I'm doing a side by side, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout & Sierra Nevada Narwhal. 2 awesome brews,the same style but very different from each other. Hard to pick between the two. It's like picking between Jenniefer Lopez or Jenniefer Aniston for a date.

    The problem with having "one" during the day, is that it is so hard to have just one.
    I had a second Nugget Nectar, a wake n bake and now a King Titus.
    Not a lot of work getting done here today.

    I have a nice mix of the Replacements playing on the computer.

    It's another cold day with nasty weather (misty rain). This is the last of my Evil Twin brews that I picked up on sale. It was originally marked at $9.99, but I only paid $3.99. I need to go by stores when they're clearing stock more often. This is a good way to stock up on some beer that I normally wouldn't buy because of the price. For today, it's Christmas Eve at a New York City Hotel Room. What a solid imperial stout that is perfect for this day.

    Goose Island BCBS Baudoinia. Think of the standard BCBS with Cocoa Nibs added. Pretty good but wouldn't go bunkers over it.
