    Friday was awesome. Cheers to max (maxspang) and gang for opening up a spot on their floor for me Friday night. I had a great time hanging out with you this weekend. Also to jips and mdunk as always, to injuredreserve for hooking me up with that hunahpu snifter, elkhunter for the ten fidy, and jesus so many more cool people. It was an awesome first DLD!

    Here are a couple of phone videos from the conference room on Friday.



    ...words might have been starting to slur here at the end...


    ...I offer some non-sensical commentary here... haha confirms that I should really just not talk during these beer videos!


    ...and more


    Started at 7pm, think this was when I took my leave



    I'll post some videos of DLD on that thread too.

    That would have been me. Honestly, I didn't think anyone would try it. I even had a sip of it. ...damn!! That is not beer, it's hot sauce!

    This bottle share was epic! Thanks to everyone. I can't wait for next year!!

    Thanks for bringing it. It was certainly one of the more memorable beers I tried. Especially because immediately after trying it, I poured a healthy sample for my younger brother.

    I suppose we now know who the true animal is.

    One of the guys in my group got a healthy pour of that beer and made sure we all tried it without warning us what it was. I have to say that the nose on that beer was extremely deceptive. At least Ghost Face Killah (which isn't even close to this beer in hotness) burns your nostrils to warn you of what's coming. The small sip I had was way more than enough. Curious though, do you have more bottles? As we've told other people about that beer there are a few who'd like to try it.

    Fun tasting. I didn't meet a whole lot of people, but everyone that I did was really cool. What a weekend...

    I don't have any other bottles of it, but I'm pretty sure the place where I bought it still has a few. Everyone is scared of it, so it doesn't exactly fly off the shelves! PM me, and we can figure out how I can get you a bottle.

    Wonder why they are scared of it... haha. I think I may have grabbed your bottle and tried to troll convince people into trying it. Sorry bout that, everyone! But I must admit the faces that were made when people tried it were hilarious.

    That "thing" (beer?) had our friend hiccuping for at least an hour...poor fool.

    As promised, here's a little video I threw together that covered the night. Including my friend David trying the infamous Ghost Scorpion!
