    Don't know how this turned into a beer night, but it did...

    Here's some great luck: ever walk into the beer store and just spot something that wasn't there before, and it turns out you stumbled onto something really cool?
    So, randomly, grabbed a bottle of this - really just cuz' the bottle looked interesting - I had absolutely no idea what I was buying, y'know? Really, I was just going in for the Westmalle tripel...

    Thomas Hardy's Ale
    Bottled in 2008

    Nice little medallion hanging from under the foil...
    Classy, eh?
    Turns out it's an old ale - a style of which I am very fond...
    In the light you can see a little sediment in there...
    Lately I have had some real random good luck with English old ales (this and Fuller's Vintage Ale). Can't tell me the English don't have this shit figured out pretty well, eh?

    If you're a fan of the style or an advocate in general, this is a no-brainer.

    And get this, later (meaning, when I finish this, lol), I'm gonna have an Uncle Jacob stout (lol) - good thing I'm going in late tomorrow - lol... good times, yo... :D

    Spontaneous beer nights rule!

    Peace out!

    For tonight. Look....it's a damn good porter. Is it worth $7.49 a pint? In my opinion no.

    All hail the Double Imperial Lager! (sorry no picture too difficult on IPad)

  18. First time trying this one, I've liked most of the Atwater brews I've had so far and this one is pretty good too.

    It's definitely on the lighter side for an imperial stout, but I don't think that's a bad thing. I've been drinking quite a few 'big' stouts lately and this is a refreshing change. Some nice milk chocolate flavors and can't taste a bit of 11%. Pretty solid stout in my book.
