    I opened a bottle of Brazil Oberon tonight that had been lingering in the back of my fridge. Hot damn, what an awesome beer. I remember having it when it was first released and it was a little hot. Not anymore. Mellow bourbon notes with sweet coffee and vanilla. Great beer.

    Yes, unroasted (raw) hazelnut dominated our opinions. There were 6 of us at the share, vanilla was not mentioned much. It was our first beer of the night.

    The Cycle Trademark Dispute Red Label (&+) was well received universally and may have been our favorite beer of the night amongst a pretty solid lineup of 15-20 bottles/cans. I probably should have bought more of these and left the VHMZ where I stayed in Largo instead of in my suitcase.

    Really one of my favorite series from CCB over the years outside of last years Batch 8 which was strangely a non-descript DIPA which we all assumed was a last minute replacement for something they had messed up that was supposed to be the Real Batch 8...just dawned on me to that this Batch 9 sounds real similar to a beer they used to brew back in the early days called Improvisacion

    Nah they've had other terrible 110k DIPAs in the past as well.

    I just picked up some CO#6 bottles. The bartenders said they haven't tried it because it was such a small batch.

    Anyone try the CO and care to chime in? At $15 it seems awfully pricey but I guess that's the standard around here these days at $30 bomber. The mixture of all beers seems a but odd but it may be good what do I know..

    Is the price for one 12 ounce bottle? If so I'll be passing on that one.

    A little rich for my blood too, but not new. CO was $15 for 12oz when it was last released 3 years ago. I passed on it then too.

    Capricho Oscuro tastes pretty similar to DB Bolita. I get tons of bourbon and caramel.

    110k on draft is delicious. The bottles are terrible. Anyone else have the same result?

    I opened a bottle last night. Lots of flavor, but on the sweet side. On the other hand, I opened my crowler of Rum and Whiskey Oak Maple Pecan Zhukov and it's incredible. Easily top 5 CCBC for me.

    This was the Growler Tuesday offering on 12/20. One day brewery-only release I'm afraid :slight_frown:

    I've only opened 1 bottle and it was good. Not as good as when they used to treat the Bolita with the ORC treatment, but damn good.

    Agreed......good but not great. A bit pricey at $15 for a 12 oz. Gonna cellar the other 3 bottles and see what happens.

    I guess Buddy Shots being released at Cycle in the morning is a strong ale and not an imperial stout. Have they ever done this style before and if so anyone have any feedback on it? I love their Barrel Aged stouts and I'm hoping I will enjoy this strong ale just as much.

    Anyone heard about bottle limits? Or the availability? Will it be similar to the anniversary series?

    Cycle has said it's "Anniversary series" level in terms of bottle count and limit. They believe it will no limit and could take over a week to sell out.

    Probably wasn't bad. No limits and it's not a stout.

    Any idea if they will have it on draft at the brewery this weekend?
