    I think I do see that though it's been a while since I had Cuddlebug. I do think it tastes really similar to Filmishmish which is a good thing.

    Just curious, what do people tend to trade their bottles for?

    The only bottles I have ever traded away were Mocha Wednesday because I don't like how ths coffee falls off and I knew I could score a few Deal With The Devils 1:1, and that beer was a huge want for me. Everything else has stayed on my shelves or in my gut. Trading in general for me has usually been nothing but a hassle so I rarely bother. Plus, why let go of stuff I spent a grip to get in the first place?

    Correct, but it's not the same beer that Melange 15 was going to be (the winning beer in the "clean" blending competition). We made that change due to there being a lot of confusion on which Melange beer is which, so we decided for the Hoarders blending winning beers could be their own series, hopefully reducing confusion in the future.

    I apologize for this confusing name change, but rest assured Melange #15 (which is the winner of our staff competition) isn't part of your membership, but 2016 Hoarders Cuvee (both versions) will be.

    Thanks,

    Had a 2015 Confession last night. Was pretty good with the riesling finish, but had a strong sulfur and matchbox flavor at the beginning. Anyone else experience this flavor?

    Been stored at 65-75F room temperature.

    Sounds like Scoop. Kinda wish people would stop mixing in the anniversary ale though. I'm sure it'd be much better if it was just BT lol.

    It will be great when a bottle that actually says hoarders trickles down to reserve.

    I'm not sold, when I hear raspberries I can't stop thinking of Deschutes adding pomegranate to everything and it being terrible. This might be a subjective/polarizing flavor like Orange and Chocolate flavor.

    When discussing the beer with a buddy, I asked him what the worst fruit is he can think of to pair with Chocolate, Bourbon, Vanilla, and BT... Raspberries was the 2nd fruit he named. I'm in that boat as well. Hoping it tastes better than it sounds!

    Think the only thing I can think of that would be better is cherry or strawberry. Raspberry and Chocolate is a common dessert pairing

    I'll add Peaches or Blueberries to the list. I personally do not like Chocolate and Raspberry pairing, and find it to be divisive flavor, like chocolate and orange. Also I can't get:

    out of my head when I think about this beer. I didnt care for either, but I'm open to this breaking the norm. Maybe I'm one of the weird ones, like ppl who hate cilantro, with this favor combo.

    Have you had the chance to try this one:

    I think it might break your distaste for raspberry in a beer.

    I thought the raspberry character was fairly weak and it ended up being quite meh overall (and I'm an Eclipse fan in general). Maybe there's some bottle variation but if I wasn't a fan of raspberry stouts, that Eclipse variant wouldn't do anything to change my mind.

    Never had the pleasure, but hopefully the HS Exclusive is a similar experience for me that this beer was for you.

    My experience with raspberry stouts/porters/barleywines is that they've always had this cloying artificial flavor. Hopefully that was just because those specific ones were artificial and this is better, but I'm wary.

    I looked at todays email for the Terreux Terre Sauvage and didn't see Shart of Darkness. It was now called Shard of Darkness. Was it a mistake in the first email?

    That was kinda my point that I should have made more clear. It wasn't overwhelming with a raspberry flavor and because of that I didn't feel the fruit dominated and took away from what I expected the beer to be.

    There are a fair amount of ill-considered raspberry stouts out there, but this one proved to me that they can be truly exceptional: Haymarket Clare's Thirsty Ale.

    I've had lindley park twice in the last six months. I love it very much, very enjoyable!
    Of course, I love raspberry - but I'd highly recommend it.

    Whenever I'm trading to someone in that area, I always try to expand a bottle of LP.

    I thought it was better than Westbrook 5th anniversary.

    I need to get in on some of that Lindley Park, I've only had Omega Point, which is one of the top 5 beers I've ever had.

    I like a lot of what Old Hickory puts out. Their Event Horizon is great, especially at it's price point. Omega Point was very on point :wink:

    I've got a couple Lindley Park's but haven't cracked one recently... this conversation is making me want to do just that.

    I liked Event Horizon as well, but LP was much tastier.

    Now I gotta hunt down a H.S. member that doesn't want to max out the Hoarders Cuvee! I can dream!

    Was going to chime in but it's been said, Lindley Park and Event Horizon are great beers with the raspberry addition. Dragon's Milk Raspberry wasn't so much, a little syrupy, but not overly sweet.
