    I got a regular MZ that was approaching 3yrs old in a trade this summer. It was positively unreal, I'm a sucker for aged Expedition/FIS/Pt5 too but man was it was absolutely amazing. I can't imagine H+V could hurt it, but if you're aging it, that seems a bit counter intuitive.

    I didn't realize MZ was that expensive though, you could get a 4pk of FIS and a 6pk of Exp for that price, if the plan is 3 years in the basement.

    Calvert Woodley seems to be a dollar or two cheaper for most releases than other DC stores, though their beer department always seems in flux, so I don't know if that will last. Currently imperial mexican biscotti cake break is $15.99 there and around $19 other places in the city.

    Anyone else pumped for Ocelot, Talking Backwards? I sure as fuck can't wait...easily the best Triple IPA I've had, makes knee deep simtra seem like a malt bomb...3 weeks or so to go!

    Have high hopes. Nothing really changed other than some extra hops in whirlpool and dry-Hop. How they're able to get that beer so dry is magical to me.

    They've been bottling for at least a year now. All of their barrel-aged beers have been available in bottles (Gravity Always Wins is available now, Painless is coming soon), and they typically have 1-2 of their IPAs available in bottles for $5-6.

    GAW was REALLY good, had one side by side when Backwoods came out... it wasn't even close, hometown crushed it (the 750 was more than the whole 4x12 but that's not important always). Highly recommend that beer.

    Cat out of the bag. Had a sneak peak today of Oliver's Brewing Crown of Lies DIPA. Shit is the bombdiggity. Goes on sale at the brewery tomorrow, 4 packs at DTC tonight I believe. Sooo good.

    Agreed. I thought it was very good. DTC had them out on the floor around 2-3 yesterday. Looks like they had a good amount, so I'm sure they have 4 packs left.

    Ocelot is quietly making the best BA beers in the region, and its really not even close.

    MyThoughtsExactly Initiate (0) Jun 10, 2015 Virginia

    While I didn't have them side by side I'd say I liked Lost Rhino Dark Hours more than BA My Only Friend. Either way I always try Ocelot's BA beers although I wish they bottled those in the 500 mL.

    Speaking of which, it looks like this Lost Rhinos Dark Hours dropped this week at the brewery.

    Dark Hours is a great beer for sure. I like BA MOF and Painless more, but they are in the same conversation.

    Based on their latest Instagram post looks like Toppling Goliath cans are coming to CBC H St next Saturday. Dorothy and pseudosue from the looks of it. Wouldn't be surprised if Golden Nugget is the 3rd one they're referring to.

    WF clarendon has $5 pours/ $12 32oz growlers of the newest DH. That's a much better deal than you'll find the bottles, if you're planning on drinking.

    It's tasty, I didn't have it last year, had more of a dry hopped character ala BA rasputin, nothing wrong with that, but not just "bourbon soaked brownie" the hordes are always hoping for.
