    Enjoying a Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier. A classic, and one of my favorite light & refreshing beers. Cheers.

    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.)

    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...


    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
