    If I weren't so snockered I would've taken pics at the bottle share before Ananke Day in San Antonio. Had to be a good 200 bottles opened.

    I had one about two weeks ago and it was fantastic. The flavors were still well blended. The day before I met a rep from Founders who had had one about every 6 months since its release and said it was at its best so far...

    BA DL set (with 04 regular), 99 Framboos, and way too many other amazing other beers to list out.

    We REALLY don't need everybody to quote cosmicevan's post and include pictures. It just makes me feel bad about myself. My cellar is bad and I should feel bad...


    Just kidding! I'm swimming with the whalez!

    there really wasn't a bad beer in the bunch (although those DL muertes...i just don't get them and 04 DL was the definition of oxidation). many, i was fortunate enough to have had before.

    the 99 framboos was not only drinkable, but better than the new version (i still love the homage most though - but 99 was definitely a crowd favorite).

    new bourbon vanilla dark lord was better than the last one...all the bourbon and vanillas were still great, but the 11's are starting to show some age. new batch of 50n4e seemed a bit hotter than how i remembered the last batch, but still a winner. pappy 23 (first time having that one for me) was surprisingly hot compared to other pappy experiences for me with the 12, 15, and 20. still oh so smooth though. the mikkeller was such a surprise...i had never heard of it before, and loved it. magic ghost was super cool...tea in beer! dug 50th anniversary 3F more than i did the previous time i had it. i found the new batch of chocolate rain to be really reminiscent of batch 1 but that was very late in the day. and from the other day, the ba church on a hill blew my mind. i had high expectations on that one and it far exceeded them.

    the real highlight was the hang. as fun as it is to drink all these crazy beers...by the 2nd or third beer, it doesn't really matter what is getting open, we are all hanging out and just having fun and trying to keep up because the beer quickly becomes secondary. great to meet oldport (and your lady) and see guisseppe for one of these crazy ones...and always a great time seeing totor, grumpy, speedwhale (and schen), dtmets, and jbuddle (although briefly). as always thanks to our generous host and everyone for bringing the heat and good times.

    miraculously i didn't break anything on the way home, but did break 2 glasses during the tasting (for shame...i know) - by the way ISO 3F (not FFF) glassware ;)

    Evan, I swear to god, if you send me a glass to replace that I will not be happy. Please, PLEASE do not send me something to replace that! :) And Dan will also survive without his geuze taster or whatever he calls that little thing.
