    Kind of apples-to-oranges. They're pretty different. In a must pick between Chocolate Sombrero vs Buried Hatchet on nitro? Both please.

    Which is further from the base beer? I'd lean toward En Fuego.

    Just picked one up from big hops. Should I drink it now or cellar it for a few months?

    Is this something I should stock up on? I've seen it a few places but haven't bothered yet. I've had one and enjoyed it but am also interested in getting some stuff that may have trade value (sacrilegious, I know...). I'm a newbie trying to get stuff that I've missed out on but don't have anything to trade to get them, you know being a newbie and all.

    Edit: also looking for things I could bring to bottle shares so I don't show up empty handed..

    Don't let people tell you how much of what you should buy. Just remember to be an Advocate. Plus we already have Azzying and Chowing. HookemHops13ing doesn't have a good ring to it, so I think you're safe ;)

    Ya I know.. I think im just a bit over anxious to dive in and try all this great stuff people talk about but have trouble figuring out the best way to do that.

    That being said... Back on topic Luchador En Fuego was awesome fresh. Not experienced enough to know how it will age so I'll leave that to the pros.

    Friends and bottle shares... ;)

    Go to beer events and meet new people.

    Heck, there was a time I never thought I'd be able to try some pretty common stuff like BCBS.

    Beer folks are usually pretty generous folks. :D

    You should get an avatar, you wouldn't believe how easier it is when I post when I know who is talking about stuff.

    But yes, stock up on at least two bombers. Age em for a year and compare them to next years release of Luchador. You shall learn young one

    Dairy Queen.

    They've got a wicked chicken fried steak sandwich combo that you can pair with that Luchador en Fuego. ;)

    (I'm just kidding... he means the D&Q Beer Station in Houston)

    I didn't get much pepper out of it, nor did I find it boozy (in taste :p), but it sure is tasty.

    Im not a big spicy fan but im with ya. Id take an overspiced jalapeno stout over the hops any day.

    I'll take either, but spicy beers are much harder to find than hop bombs at this point. If I want a decent spicy beer, I basically have to go to a bar with 512's Cascabel on tap.

    I love spice. Love it.

    And don't get me wrong, when done right, I like a hoppy beer. However, spice won't get my girlfriend bitching about stale hop-beer breath in the morning. Or right when we get in bed.

    I taste about as much pepper in Luchador as I do in Sombrero. i.e. none at all.

    I got as much bourbon as I did in Luchador, then opened a Porcine just to check, I just like a lot more barrel then everyone else I guess

    Only spicy beer I've ever truly enjoyed was the Cascabel from 512. You really couldn't taste much spice, but I loved how it warms your throat after you drink it. For me to enjoy a spicy beer, it has to be really toned down.

    Cascabel is actually fairly spicy. Luchador was much more tame.

    No sir, I like the fact that there is no spice in it lol - In my eyes, Sombrero is the best stout to never to hit a Bourbon Barrel.
