    Just have to add another thumbs up for Zombie Dust. Had it on tap at FFF, awesome. Bartender said the bottles sold were fresher than the keg, took home a sixer and it was even better. Delicious.

    I was expecting a lot out of Courage Russian Imperial Stout, and boy did it deliver. Now I need the inner strength to age a few.

    Kind of a tie...Backwoods Bastard and Jacks Abby Smoke and Dagger. Both were just that "oh, yeah" moment and I had them a few hours apart.

    This summer, Stone Ruination.

    Cant tell ya why, but those are three that come to mind.

    Schlafly Pumpkin Ale, I don't enjoy this style at all but couldn't stop opening them up. Simply fantastic and such a great surprise.

    I had Wake N Bake for the first time this year, so that. Also, a few weeks ago I had the Passionfruit Berlinerweiss from Funky Buddha. Incredibly sour and delicious.

    I agree, had it for the 1st time on NYE and was blown away which shouldnt surprise me since all the Samuel Smith stouts and porters are homeruns in my book. Guess because it was organic, I didnt expect the same quality.

    Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter totally caught me off guard last night.
    Puts many a "stout" to shame.
