    I believe it's a coffee stout. However, after drinking too much a few weeks ago, my brewing partner and I mislabeled quite a few bottles. So it could be the newest batch of Blackberry Merlot... :/

    A box with no label from Michigan. Well, I love Citra and have never tried these and BWB is always a great beer. Thanks!

    Kelly dropping a box from Mass with 2 perma-wants to make a rainy Monday that began with getting drilled at the dentist. Much appreciated Kelly! I love both of these brews.

    My intent was to tell him not to worry about it, not to dog anybody so my apologies. I appreciate everyone sending beers that I really want to drink. :)

    That'd be from Durb777. And freakin Zombie Dust!

    This is the most generous BIF I've ever been a part of. The minimum is 1 container of beer, and I think the avg amount is some where around 40oz per box. Man I love this community!

    From osubuckeye99 (I think? Came from Chris in IL, I'm jumping to conclusions like Office Space). Can't wait to dive into the Daisy Cutter and speechless about the Aged Barleywine, it looks amazing!!!

    Another beauty from OSUBuckeyes99. It is good dudes like yourself that helped your buckeyes get an easier draw as a 2 seed than most of the 1 seeds. I have loved everything from Revolution and I don't expect this beast to be any different. Cheers!

    By the way McNuts, can I come visit? Your landscape looks a lot nicer than Boston at the moment. Is that sunshine? I've heard of that before...
