    I have had a 32oz and 64oz growler so I didn't have to crack my bottles. Those are going to sit a while.

    64oz growler for $20 was a steal! :D

    I need some help/suggestions. I just completed a trade, 2 BB Hellfighters for 6 BCBS with extras (50-60oz) left up to the shipper. When I received my shipment I felt that I didn't send as good of extras as he did. He made it difficult when he said no IPA and that's my style of choice (I was going to include an Endeavour and Hopadillo). So any suggestions on something local and good that's not an IPA? Iv thought about maybe some Buried Hatchet and Weisse Versa. Thx in advance

    Pontificator and/or Yule Shoot Your Eye Out (I think there is still some YSYEO downtown). You can't go wrong with Weisse Versa or Buried Hatchet either. Others would be Pumpkinator (I can help you out if you don't have any), also maybe some Jester King stuff.

    He said he liked sours and red ales but Im not going to drive all over town and spend a shit ton of $ looking for a RU-55. The Pontificator is a good idea. Whatever I send next will be unexpected by him as he thinks the trade is already complete.

    Understand about the cost with JK, but I was thinking more along the lines of Le Petit Prince. If he like reds, Real Ale Brewer's Cut Red Ale seems perfect, or any of the Brewer's Cut releases, and should still be easily available.

    Where is this trader located? Buried Hatchet makes it to a few different states.

    If you can find it in Houston I would ship some Hops and Grain Alt (2012 World Beer Cup gold medal winner) or some Real Ale bottles like Sissyphus, Phoenixx, Devil's Backbone, etc.

    Is Phoenixx bottled? I did not know that. Good point on Buried Hatched, when I went to visit the family in Illinois Southern Star was all over the place.

    I did send him a brewers cut dry hop porter. Maybe Ill buy a 4 pack of the brewers cut Red send him 2 and keep 2 and also a bomber of the JK you suggested. Much appreciated.

    Yeah, it's been in bottles for a few years now. Probably easy to overlook since RA's branding is all over the place.[​IMG]

    I don't believe SS distributes to MN, so Buried Hatchet away.

    I flared up in jealousy when I saw that you found BBA Hellfighter...

    Hell I think I might like it more than the Abyss

    I'm interested to do a side by side after a year. I know Abyss ages well and so does the BB Hellfighter. We'll have to give it until next January and have a competition. lol

    I think I'll polish off my BBA Hellfighter growler tonight.

    I just had a 2011 reserve in January and shortly after had the BB hellfighter. However I did not do a side by side to compare. I just prefer how bourbon forward the Hellfighter is.
     
  17. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Apr 11, 2012 Texas

    You should just pour bourbon in your stouts and porters. ;) I like the bourbon flavor to mellow and bring out vanilla, caramel, and toffee flavors. Year old BBA Hellfighter is awesome!

    I am curios if anyone has had the 029K-3 canning of Hopadillo?
    I have had a fair amount of this, most within a few weeks of canning and I really enjoy it. Holy Cow, I think they kicked it up a notch on this batch!

    My exclamation upon tasting this batch is not fit for print. I also picked up a serious grapfruit note I do not think I got before and is not a characteristic of the listed hops.

    I think I will email them to thank them and ask them about it.

    Least a BA got them so all is well

    I've done that,maybe not a pour, but a little bit, to several stouts - Buried Hatchet, Ten Fidy, Narwhal, etc. Doesn't hurt! :)

    Does anyone know how long these beers (bodacious, fgl, hellfighter) barrel age for before going into bottles?

    This makes me wish there WERE Krogers around me.

    Sigh, might just need to start offering up DR-12s in hopes someone would bite and deal one of the FUNs. Sitting on way too many of those.

    Has anyone tried the new imperial IPA that they have at the brewery? Thoughts?
     
  35. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Apr 11, 2012 Texas

    Sitting on DR12 is the best thing you can do with it right now.

    That said, I'd trade some for BBA Hellfighter or Bodacious.

    More Cowbell?

    If so, it's been around for a while. It's a good beer.

    More Cowbell is a Buffalo Bayou Brewing beer, not Karbach.

    Karbach the other day tweeted they were working on a new Imperial IPA and I believe they were sampling it at their tour over the weekend.

    Too many of these all inclusive, official threads... My brain farted on me...

    I'd like a better IIPA from Karbach. :D
     
  39. TheWritingWaffle

    TheWritingWaffle Jan 21, 2013 Texas

    That's what I was saying. I have about a full 6-pack of DR-12 plus another 3-4, but nothing to do other than hold it. I would definitely deal a handful for Bodacious or the BBA Hellfighter. Still debating which I liked more.

    Dr12 was so prevelent here in Houston that I would find it hard to believe someone who has bbh didnt get dr12. Hats not to say someone.might want.more, but I would be surprised .
