    Had two very fine beers this weekend:
    Finally stopped by Sante Adarius. Picked up a delicious growler of Simpleton.
    Did a tasting flight at Faction today. Diverge IPA was the pick of the litter for me.

    Had two this weekend:
    Dosvidanya by Destihl and Ryeway to Heaven by Revolution

    Both are insanely good and I can't recommend them enough. I need more!

    And a slight variant: Regular Ten Fidy canned 3 years ago. A relative lives near their brewery in Brevard NC. I asked her to bring me some Ten Fidy. She goes to the brewery and asks for a case, and they say, "the 2013 or the 2016?" She said "both." Three years does nothing but make the best stout there is even smoother and more scrumptious.

    I've had some really good stuff as the holidays have ramped up. We had some folks over for a holiday party and I took the opportunity to open up some big heavy bottles that are tough to finish alone... Standouts:

    Firestone Walker Double DBA (2014), this was just absurdly good. Their blending program is rightly praised.

    Tusk and Grain Barrel Aged Blend No. 1, another that's been allowed to age a bit. So damn smooth.

    Fresh 3F Oude Gueuze.

    Had a year-old bottle last year and thought it was alright but disappointing. Just had a fresh one last week and I don't think I'll ever find a more enjoyable gueuze.

    Prairie coffee okie. An extraordinary beer, as usual from Prairie.

    My last wow contributions in this thread were Tank 7, and Brooklyn Black chocolate Stout many months back. Please don't tell me I have poor taste in beer.

    Westbrook Two Claw. It was so juicy and aromatic, with a hint of rye spice. All of Westbrook's hoppy beers I've had so far have been excellent, and yet no one talks about them.

    Me and the wife just tried the Habanero Sculpin and that was a definite WOW! Very nicely done IPA with a powerful chili pepper punch.

    The pour(s) of 2012 Supplication I had at a Russian River Sour tap takeover last week was probably the best beer I've ever tasted. The sourness was so well balanced, the dark flavors of the fruit and barrel aging, perfect mouthfeel. It was an experience.

    I had two pints of Goose Island's Juliet last night. It was a fantastically sour and funky beer, and it was on happy hour special, so I only payed $8 in total. I'd call that a major "WOW!".

    Double Barrel Big Bad Baptist. Incredible dark chocolate flavors balanced by a bit of coffee. Then about a week after I went back to try the regular Big Bad Baptist and I thought this year's regular release was almost as good!

    I was always skeptical of this beer but finally bought into the hype last year and I was not disappointed....

    Stone Xocovesa.

    A recent "wow" beer moment for me actually came from combining two beers. Was at a winter beer festival and a Lagunitas rep recommended combining their Imperial Stout with Dark Swan. I like both beers on their own (Dark Swan, especially), but the combination was something truly unique and delicious.

    EXTREME late pass needed but, Founders Breakfast Stout. Absolutely blew me away, such an awesome balance between flavours.
