    Coolio. The #2 or the original? Still have a big bottle standing around here for a special occasion :relaxed: Enjoyed it on tap at Noord-Hollands Bierfestival in February and it was the beer of the day together with the Sprout I'm having now :relaxed:

    Just came back on here to specify that this was batch 1, the "Limited Edition" edition, and that it totally, 100%, no-doubt-about-it, sucks. I want to drainpour it and drink something half way decent, but I have to work tomorrow and this one is only 9%...

    In addition to the Beer Here Dark Hops, I have also found a St Peter's Cream Stout laying around, which will probably be my first. Gonna be riding a wave of roasty butterscotch tonight.

    After the Outblack Ale I'm moving to the Buffalo Black Stout. That's one of my handmade bottle openers by the Outblack.

    I have to work late tonight, and early tomorrow morning....but I can't pass up the opportunity to take part in a day that celebrates my favorite style. I'll probably just have Narwhal when I get off work, nothing too crazy.

    If I can find the Stone Mint Chocolate, then that might be the one, otherwise I might go Rogue Shakespeare or Chocolate Stout.
