  5. I guess I didn't mean serious so much as not fun, but more as....hardcore? Haha, I've only dabbled in craft before. I tried it slowly on the back of a spoon, and it looked like it might work at first......meh, who cares. Finishing off this mix before having half of each to finish the bottles. Not sure I'll be advocating much else after this is over.

    A barrel aged winter warmer. Randomly saw this today and figured I'd give it a shot. I like it!

    in my limited experience, there comes a time where the stout on top becomes too heavy and mixes in on it's own. not all black and tans are 50/50, you gotta experiment and learn as you go.

    I didn't pick any up but I was able to pick up 3beans and Palate Wrecker

  27. Holy Bell's! I really need to see if my local Whole Foods has gotten Black Note. They had Hopslam before the liquor stores, so....maybe? *crosses fingers*

    Did you buy it? Drink it out of a fucking shoe filled with shit if you want to.

  35. I didn't have it bent to sit on the glass, but held it as well as I could to pour over the back of it. The more of this 10% mix I drink, the less I care that it turned out one color! The mix of Hopslam's sweet honey and hop profile with the BCS's burnt and bittersweet-ness is my current Nirvana.

    Thanks BeerBuddy2122 for the trade. This is going to become a new favorite. Every bit as good as Breakfast Stout, though it actually reminds me more of Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout.
