B.o.r.i.s. , and it was a great choice!
Hosting a potluck tonight for a guest speaker that gave a lecture in our department today (the presentation was on climate justice and indigenous identity in Bolivia, for anyone that's interested), so there's a sixer of Ruthless Rye in my fridge that I'm pretty excited about. Never had it before!
Some day. Then this!
Holy crap, I love it. Was hoping to drink this before dinner, but I think it will last all night.
That's ok. I saw it said otter. It made me chuckle.
Flower Power! and Terrapin 10th Anniversary glass w/ Leonard Euler and his equation.
Gentlemen, that is surely true, it is absolutely paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we don't know what it means. But we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth.
Loving this one, no infection here, fantastic beer. Big, thick and rich. Thanks Sharpie!
Yeah I had to ninja edit - me ,my fat fingers and an IPhone = horrible misspellings
Last one for this year.
Starting out with a Great Divide Orabelle Belgian-Style Triple. I'm diggin it.
Hops and Hockey on deck for the evening.
first impressions: bizarre. There's a weird taste in here, and I don't necessarily dislike it, but it's stumping me. Almost a little salty on the finish? But very bitter too. A very interesting beer!
Later tonight: bourbon barrel barleywine from CW. A night of firsts!
Much of the initial alcohol burn is gone, I think it is delicious, love the molasses and licorice. Glad I bought a case and kept it cellared.
White Rajah right now.. later on I'm gonna do a side by side with this year's and last year's Founders Imperial Stout.. cheers..
Stellar. Must have moar. Nothing beats a solid single IPA in my books. Brings me back to what got me into craft, and that is IPA's.
Cigar City Peach IPA
I set the Growler aside and am opening a home brew Honey Porter that the beer guy at Liquor Shed gave me.
It hissed when I popped the cap.
It pours a pitch black, 2 finger head of foam, outstanding lacing.
It has a honey sweetness, roasty thing going, slight hint of oxidation in the smell.
Some roasted malt and honey in the taste with a hint of oxidation...very light tartness. Not bad, and I'll let him know; heck he said he was newish at home brewing. I give him a thumbs up for the effort as it's not close to being a drain pour. Got another bottle of it in the fridge.
Playing in the smoke and fire, blacksmithing and beer...some of my favorite things.
Three Philosophers Quad. I guess I've been holding on to this one for awhile with old label and 2011 date.
Listening to some old Elvis Costello:
founder's imperial stout... then I'll finish my big john.
further impressions on hopslam now that its had time to warm up a bit: wow... amazing! so, so good. I like Sucks slightly better but this is in the elite tier.
It's a Sculpin kind of night.
My last 2012 Central Waters BBBW....STOP STARING AT ME YOU BASTARD YOUR NEXT!!
Tomorrow I begin my pilgrimage northward to the land of Central Waters. All others embarking on the same journey this weekend, I bid you safe travels! See ya at the party! CHEERS!!
Excellent Costello tune!!
I was hungry, but now I'm starving!!! That looks awesome.
It's a fictional phobia from a satirical sci-fi novel if I'm not mistaken. Then again, I can imagine people being scared of geese/swans in general, they can get pretty aggressive
Let me guess....it was the purple onions that grabbed you.
Another Jai Alai and just showing off a cool cigar box I got to hold my bottle caps.
Now my avatar's name make more sence.
Alright, so I've been seeing you all drink Sucks for the past few weeks and alas, i finally got some for myself!
I gotta say, this is just as good as advertised.
Cheers my BA brethren! Let's make it a good night!
Samuel Adams Longshot A Dark Night In Munich
First one of these ever. Pretty darn good.
Trappistes Rochefort 8. Should probably be listening to some Gregorian chant music for the full effect, but I guess some Bruce (The Wild, The Innocent, and the E-Street Shuffle) will do. Belgian and Bruce. Cheers.
I forgot to mention the jalapeño jelly and bacon of course! Cheers ~
The Laughing Dog Anubis Imperial Coffee Porter was most likely infected. It tasted like green olives, down the drain.
On to this hot mess, at least it looks like it'd taste good. Also the nearing last of the mediocrity part that was my Christmas gift haul, got a handful of Stone bombers left--rejoice!
Seriously. Have seen them beat other animals pretty badly using their wings, and really could hurt a child. I have had several pretty rough encounters (like torn clothing and blood on my side) with roosters, so would have to think twice about Black Rooster conjuring up bad memories! I am good with the Goose though...one of the better holiday brews, IMHO.
Beer can day or something like that, so I will abide.
D'oh! Why didn't I save my last one for canned beer day?
