Congrats on the job, I'm still looking since coming back from Afghanistan.

enjoying an old friend...
Enjoying a Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier. A classic, and one of my favorite light & refreshing beers. Cheers.
I worked the late shift today, I work the early shift tomorrow and it's snowing.
for me tonight...
2011 ten FIDY can, simple and damn tasty.
It's been a while since I've had one if these;

Cheers BAs ~
Tremendous pooch you got there.
Which one do you prefer?
Here's to 25 more years, Lakefront!!!!
That's something I've never heard of before. Is it boozy?
Funny, I'm currently listening to The Soft Bulletin. I'm at this track right now, a great one:
Deschutes Red Chair
Holy hell. What is this beast? This makes Breakfast Stout seem like a romp in the park. (Full disclosure, I enjoyed Breakfast Stout but I was expecting a lot more going into it. Expecting something more like this, actually.)
SO GOOD! wish I had more
Tried a bunch of new beers this weekend...but most were pretty meh. That run of misfortune ended tonight. Wow, just wow.
Finished the Ten Fidy and now going for regional choice - Good People Brown...
In my meaningless opinion, FIS is the single best non-barreled RIS a person can buy.
Finally getting this brewery in my neck of the woods. Not the greatest but not bad either. Chive on.
Oxidized but still drinkable.
Well, hell. It was drinkable for a couple minutes, but it just doesn't have much flavor and is thin and is pissing me off to keep drinking it. I was so looking forward to this. If you have a 2005 don't wait any longer. The 2007 Reserva I had a couple nights ago is freaking perfect. This is not.
Just one for me tonight, was going to have it to toast the Pats victory yesterday, but, uh...
BOURBON COUNTY BRAND COFFEE STOUT.
Verdict: awesome. My first one ever after a TON of regular BCBS, a few Brambles, a Cherry, a Vanilla, a taste of Rare. Coffee has eluded me. Call me crazy, but I like Bramble and Cherry over this. The Coffee is awesome though...this is like picking your favorite child.
Last year's BA Shipwrecked Porter is tasting great.
Nice! Excellent choice! Cheers ~
Just got back from the bar/brewery. Enjoyed some Black Bottle Brewery Anarcy Porter. Hold The Government, some Odell Stone Barn Amber, and some Sierra Nevada Barrel Aged Ovila Quad.
Got to say, not a Sierra Nevada fan but I really, really enjoyed that Ovila. I didn't want the glass to end. If I didn't have to drive home I would have definitely ordered another.
Beer Republic Cafe Racer 15 & Green Flash Green Bullet.
Both on draft. Sorry for not providing a picture.
my last raxer x
Having a side-by-side comparison following my visit to the pub yesterday. I guess technically Duet wins, but I can't help but feel like regardless of the outcome, I'm the winner.
Get a dog, problem solved!

No one's opinion is meaningless on the internet! But seriously, this is a hefty motherfucker and I wish more brewers would aim for this kind of stout. It may not be my favorite for the style (and I've found that I generally prefer the American Double / Imperial variety to the Russian Imperial), but this is wonderfully rich and complex and deep. Brewers should try to make stouts like this before they throw it into a bourbon barrel.
Deschutes Porter to chase down the fried alligator!
Been there several times in the past, love that place!
Have not tried the beer but love The Lips. Cheers!!!
