    Last night Todd and I were hard at work getting the next issue finished, this is what was in my mug. Not all at once of course but that might taste good right?

    Sierra Nevada Bigfoot 2013

    Have family coming into town today so I'll be cracking open some big beers tonight.

    Finally got to try this badboy. Tasty stuff. I think it stands up to alot of the more popular Big Guns out there currently.

    Loaded up the fridge with some Great Divide beers for after work. Hercules and Fresh Hop, one bomber each. Unfortunately they're not exactly fresh so we'll see what happens.....

    Jealous. i wish i would have bought that many when it came out. I didnt know what to expect when i bought it
  11. I watched bottles collect dust on local shelves for a few weeks before giving it a shot.
    Decided to give it a shot.

    Mind was blown that evening.
    The next day I went back and bought 6.
    Sometimes you get lucky.

    I like that glass and saw one at LBS but didn't look in it to see if there was an etching. I like an etching in the bottom, keeps the carbonation going IMO.

  18. Ale Asylum - Ballistic IPA, last batch I had was not up to par, I am super happy to say that is a unreal kind of good, all of the off flavors from when they moved to the new facility I got in Ballistic are gone! I love this beer and this brewery, they really know how to rock some hops!
  19. Eff it. Got home from work early, sittin on the couch will nothing to do. Thought to myself, "ONE afterroon beer sounds pretty good right about now."

    Decided on this:


    Perfect. One of those beers that's great for any time of day.

    Tried one of these at a bar last week. It was...off. Im not gonna say the "I" word, but it was a bit sour...not in a good way. Did you have the same experience?
  28. njhopspop

    njhopspop Savant (345) New Jersey Oct 17, 2010

    lol I can't even fathom the thought of spending almost $300 on only one kind of beer! he must really love the stuff!
  29. Funny, now that you mention it, I'm noticing something similar. It's still good (for an RIS), but I've never had it before, so I don't have an experience to compare it to. I'll quote you some of my tasting notes from WordPad that I was using to compile a review:

    "Tastes big and black and bold. Ultra-roasty and yet fruity at the same time. Flavors of coffee and licorice combat against tart berry and prune. Has that almost-lactic tang element. Cocoa is there, too, but not a feature flavor..."

    Bottle notched with an Enjoy-by date of 02/2013.

    I am having some homebrewed porter. I decided to toss a little crushed red pepper in this pint. Not bad, I will have to split a batch.

    Also monitoring the fermentation temperature and krausen level on my OG 1.160 Weizenbock.

    Started the afternoon with a Founders CBS, moved onto a 2010 Nemesis, followed by a 2010 Backwoods Bastard.

    Cheers to the Founder's Tap Takeover at D's in Pittsburgh!

    The few variations of JK glasses have only been varied by additional markings for fills. The first ones just had the JK logo, the second had one double pour marking opposite the logo, the third had single and double pour markings opposite the logo. They're nice glasses, and the go-to for me, but I've passed out a few to friends with sticks of butter for fingers.:confused:

  38. Wow, I lose. I didn't find out about this until this morning. Any bottles leftover from the event? Specifically, CBH or Nemesis '10?

    Might head down to Harris Grill for the Bell's event tonight. Still debating about it with the girlfriend.

    Cheers to you anyways, fellow 'Burgher BA!

    No, all the bottles were sold out, and the keg was kicked by 12. It was pretty disappointing. I was hoping to get a bottle as well. I did hear they had a few kegs leftover of the Backwoods and Nemesis, but I don't think they have any CBS left.

    On the bright side, it does look promising that they'll be brewing CBS again in the near future.
