    JAFB - Barrel Aged New Stout (On Nitro).

    Disclaimer… I typically hate barrel aged stouts. I simply don’t get the appeal and have yet to have one that I would ever buy again (including KBS, Sunday Morning Stout, Great Lakes BA Blackout, Abyss, etc…). However, this is one I would actually get another one of. The nitro carbonation was probably a big reason, giving it a nice velvety mouthfeel and somewhat mellowing out the flavors… But the stout itself was not overly boozy and for the most part, balanced well. I thought it was quite tasty and I could probably get an entire glass of it and enjoy it.

    Bravo to JAFB for making a BA stout that I actually enjoyed. For the style, it is probably my favorite. However, I still don't care much for the style.

    GLBC Lake Erie Monster. Passed it up every time I saw it over the past few years and finally caved in.

    WOWZA. Finished the four-pack in about 25 minutes, went back and bought the rest.

    The most recent batch of Other Half Green Diamonds.

    It's always been a very good beer, but this most recent batch is the best on record.

    Just did the same last night. I had a friend over and her BF likes good beer. We had a KBS first and then a BA Narwhal and we both preferred the Narwhal.

    RAR Nanticoke Nectar (out of Maryland's eastern shore) totally blew me away. The hops and malt are so well-balanced.

    Found this at Wegman's in Allentown, PA. Bottled 7/10/12
    Definitely wowed me. I haven't tried this beer fresh before, but the 3 year old one is very very good. Dark fruits, smooth, and chalky. YUM
