    The NYE was fun last night. My only complaint was it was very crowded.

    The Cocoa Hills 60181 was definitely the highlight. It was a straight up chocolate milkshake.

    The coconut city was also good...tasted a lot like karma to me, but I had also had a few. The food was good.

    Pastryboi wet dream with Coconut City, Chocolate City and Coffee/Maple Imperial Falling Colors on right now.

    I thought the coconut in Coconut City was good where it's at. There was a lot of chocolate in Chocolate City but I could even see a touch more in it to go full-on Coconilla levels of pastry.

    Yes, these were test batches, similar to what they did for Henna Smores last year.

    For what it is worth, the coconut stout is delicious. Subtle coconut and thick. They really nail these stouts.

    Did More ever do a can release the Friday or Saturday of 12/28 or 12/29? I thought I recalled them mentioning they had one planned for that weekend when they did the prior week's release, but I just realized I never heard about anything else being released last week.

    You mean I didn’t have to run over there at open yesterday? Now that I think of it, they didn’t taste as rare as I expected, I’m retroactively adjusting my ratings.

    From what I understand that’s how rating beer works now. It’s like an hourglass, except instead sand seeping to the bottom it’s beer rating. If it sells our instantly, it remains a 5. If it takes 3 minutes, all the rating has gone and the beer is disgusting swill basically.

    Obviously we know the fruits pair well. Never had banana in hops so that will be interesting. Glad they’re experimenting with the Marbles series

    I’d bet on a larger line than normal considering most schools are still on winter break.

    Agreed. And with both Strawberry and Blueberry versions being so well received, it certainly won’t help keep the line any shorter than the more recent releases.

    Getting there just after open and will report back. The new Marbles post had more social media engagement than pretty much any of their non-Henna posts

    That's actually not that bad. I could head there now if I wanted, I'm right down the street in Oakbrook... Do I want to... is the question. I've spent so much money on beer since September...

    This line is ugly. Probably 125 people. They just posted on Facebook the limit is 1 x 4pk per person. I would not bet on it lasting long.

    Dont quote me but overhearing chatter in line of 400 4 packs? If so you could theoretically show up by noon and be ok. I was around 200 and got here about 1120
