    Drinking a Diesel. Very much a bitter chocolate taste with good roast. Was happy to see this at Kings + more Ranger Creek Small Batch #2 and #3

    I bought 2 bottles of the '11 last year at CM(Hulen). Drank one and wasn't at all impressed. Wasn't "bad"... just not very memorable for the price. I still have the 2nd bottle chilling somewhere in the back of my beer fridge. If you want it, it's yours.

    It's not up for trade, dude. I'm offering it to you. Every time I hear the words "I have honestly never seen that beer..." followed by "...have been wanting to try it for a long time", a little part of me cries(very little... deep deep down inside ;)). I swear I've said those word many times myself, and so many bad ass local BA's have hooked me up.

    Don't mean to "gay it up"(even more), but it would be cool just to hook you up with your first Black OPS. I live in FW, you're from Mansfield(is it..?), I'm sure we can work out a place to meet up.

    I'm from Burleson actually. I would like to gift you a BCBS for offering to give me a bottle of Black OPS.

    Damn. Raffy... You are too nice a guy.
    I have honestly never seen a million bucks, I have always wanted to try it for a long time.
    Bucks means us dollars. Not the animal. :)

    Speaking of "bad ass BA's" who have hooked me up... you two definately fall in that category... ;).

    Seth, I'll work on that million "us dollar" part and get back to you... since I'm pretty sure finding a million male deer will be harder... :confused:.

    And oops, sorry gtermi... don't know why I thought Mansfield. I was just at a Burleson golf course this past weekend... might go again this coming weekend. I'll shoot you a BM when I know for sure. Either way, we'll work something out soon.

    Looks like I won't be able to make the trip down to Austin for Josh's share this weekend..and I have a little pending trade with crusian...thinking on killing two birds with one stone. Anybody in Dallas want to meet up for a impromptu share tommorow? I have no idea a spot (Strangeways patio perhaps?)

    I think I'll have to pass... wish I didn't. I'm meeting a friend at 2 at Oak St to do some heavy drinking there. I hate liquor and the fun it ruins.
