    A meager tasting compared to most in this thread, but a stout tasting from last month. Enjoyed thoroughly.


    I should add the Olde Rabbit's Foot was infected. A damn shame since you could tell it would have been excellent otherwise.

    My motto has always been, 'ball hard or don't ball at all.' We definitely balled hard... Also there was a 10 L Lambic in a box Girardin Lambik (1 Year Unblended) involved in that massive tasting in the first photos. :D

    There actually was a 100% 1983 Dirty Horse. I'm not sure why it's not in the final lineup. It's one of the first pics of the actual album linked :)

    Did a small tasting between penniwisdom and myself last night. The KBS is 2010-2012 - we decided we liked KBS Grand Cru the most, and 2011 came in last.

    Heady Topper really does taste like Pliny in a can.

    I would have to ask my buddy who brought it to know for sure, but I want to say '10. We had the '11 previously and it was great.

    yeah, I felt a little more energized than usual, luckily the high abv on most of these brews offset most of the caffeine and I was able to sleep..had some strange vivid dreams though. Was an awesome tasting!

    Had a small tasting on Saturday night with a couple friends:


    each brew was excellent, and the consensus was that Hunahpu's edged out BCBCS.

    We could not come to a consensus on the Cantillon vs. Tilquin. The Celia was a pleasant surprise, best gluten free beer Ive ever had.
