    If my math is correct, you have to drink 5.714 Headys a day (every day) in order to keep that beer from getting more than 3 weeks old on you.
    And that's if you got the beer the day it was canned!

    Better drink up....or trade quick

    Too funny, I do the same thing whenever I'm in my home office and there's a corporate conference call! (It's the only thing that keeps me sane during those worthless things.)

    Decent beer.

    Some appropos music:

    Actually saw these guys live a few years back - lol - opening for Scar Symmetry, among others. Had to get past the lead singer's parrot-on-the-shoulder, but they were really a lot of fun live. Great energy.

    I'd be remiss if I didn't give these guys the nod, though (PotC video version):


    Shiver me timbers!

    If I could suggest my friend Ibai's music from the Basque Country, Ilbeltz! He wrote a 1000 page book in Basque to go along with the cd, which is about a basque Pirate!



    A great friend, Ibai is, and a great musican! :D

    The coffee is waaay more pronounced in the 2011 batch, which almost doesn't make sense...perhaps they changed the recipe?

    ok

    so i started with this. nice. i can recognize a quality beer even if it's not really my thing. maybe i'm not an imperial stout guy.

    [​IMG]

    and then I had this


    [​IMG]

    OMFG are you s***ing me? Scha-wing!

    reminds me of the bosco or hershey syrup at the bottom of a glass of chocalate milk - that will get you buzzed.

    Some Left Hand Barrel Aged Wake Up Dead Imperial Stout as I listen and watch the new High on Fire video. Went in with somewhat low expectations for this but definitely like this one. For $8.50 a bomber, I'd happily buy this again.

    I will! BTW, it should be available at Capone's if you get up that way in Philly. (Matt always seems to get this stuff first before anyone.) I was talking to the guy at Troegs yesterday and he was expecting another week or two before it hits the shelves through distribution.
