    A month or two ago, I would have agreed. I had some last week though that had been fridged in a 16oz swing cap and it was very smokey tasting. Not enough to dislike the beer but it certainly wasn't what I remembered.

    Could I switch the Black ops with a glass of water?

    Had a Bo and Luke this afternoon and I still love it. 5 ounce pours work at 14%. Over Thanksgiving, my brother in law and I shared a growler. Awesome beer.

    Yeah but you can agree it has definitely evolved between Thanksgiving and now correct?

    Quite possible. But I didn't find it all that smokey yesterday.

    I think you misread the post. You didn't miss the Bourbon Barrel Batch 9000--that's two days from now.

    Ah-ha! You are right. It's Tuesday at 5. I read it as being on the ATG night. I need to figure out a way to go.
