A few weeks ago, I posted this post, basically saying that I'd love to try Bell's Black Note someday but given my geographic location and the limited availability of this beer, I don't expect to get that chance anytime soon. Well, generous Michigan BA Hoptologist voluntarily decided to rectify the situation. Last week, out of the blue, I received a message from him saying he was sending to both the OP of that thread and me a bottle of Black Note. I don't know Hoptologist and don't think I've ever had any forum exchanges with him before. Package is on its way and should arrive Friday. So I just wanted to take a moment here to give a shout-out to Hoptologist, and thank him again for this kind and unexpected gesture. He only asked that at some point in the future I "beer it forward," which I'd already planned to do with some tasty Washington brews but now will try to redouble my efforts. I ask each of you to consider doing the same at some point. It's what this beer community is all about. I'd also like to ask Hoptologist to submit a quick post in this thread so everyone can give credit where credit is due. If I do get him to post in here, please shoot him a "Like" for this act of generosity. Cheers!
