    2015 Black Gold is incredible. CW 16 was also one of my favorites. And then there is Tyranena Doubly Down N Even Dirtier. That beer has zero hype, but is phenomenal!

    A few years ago I was attending a meeting in Pittsburgh. Although I didn't know it, it just happened to be their beer week as well. Completely by accident I stumbled upon a Dogfish Head tap takeover event at the Fat Head's restaurant. 120, regular WWS, and several other greats were on tap. DFH reps also brought along a firkin of the BBA WWS. They said it was the only one in existence at that time. Everyone got one small snifter of it --for free!

    Agreed with so many folks!
    High Westified was an incredibly balanced beer right out of the gate, heavy yet drinkable (not a 2-hour 12oz like BC and many others).
    This years Vanilla and Coffee Eclipses were spectacular. Incredibly drinkable right away...tasted like someone scraped real vanilla beans into the beer. Last year's BCBCS is tasting damned good right now.
    The new Prairie Rum Barrel Noir wasn't as good as the original Pirate Bomb, but their Apple Brandy Barrel Noir might also top the list for me. It's best almost room temperature, and I could be happy just smelling it for hours. The new vanilla is damned good as well.
    Parabola, Pugachev's, etc. are all great but only a few are really enjoyable fresh...they need time.

    Jackie O's BBA Dark Apparition, Country Boy Sinkhole Stout, and BCBS are all at the top of my list.

    I'm dying to try Cognac Barrel Dark App.

    Man Prop 14' is so damn good. One of my personal favs out of the whole BC lineup.
    Also, Rare 15' is an experience in and of itself.

    2010 Goose Island Bourbon County Vanilla. The original. The one that mucked up the Goose Island machinery with vanilla goodness. By the way, it is still drinking very, very well.

    I really enjoyed this one. I echo @Tommo's thoughts on Pirate BOMB! as well. Incredibly complex and amazing stuff - and only 75USD a six pack, give or take :grinning:!

    Side Project 2 Candles is the best stout I've ever had and maybe the best beer in general. Their 1 Candle was incredible too.
