    We had some friends come over for dinner Saturday and this is what it looked like at the end of our night. Our wives said,
    "I thought you were just going to try a couple of beers tonight?"

    Had this share a few weeks ago with @EA728, @ajaylock, @allies_dad, @wiingman, and @Lehighace06.

    [​IMG]

    My favorites of the night out of the beers I had never had before were Ever Weisse and Brother Soigne'. Cinnamon Roll'd WnB was a personal whale of mine and was also excellent. I think a couple of the bottles aren't pictured here, like the CCB Cucumber Saison.

    Cheers!

    And the Westvleteren was the Blond, for those keeping track at home. I don't think anyone at the table had ticked that one before (I've never had 8 or 12 either, saving 12 for my 1000th untappd checkin ;)), so it was pretty awesome to have that.

    There was also a 2nd Tired Hands growler, and one or two others I think as well. Good times!

    Yea... that was a little "pre-game" tasting. We felt it was just a little too different from the others to include in the regular tasting.

    [​IMG]

    Not pictured, but still enjoyed:

    Dogfish Head - World Wide Stout
    Fiddlehead - Second Fiddle
    Lawson's Finest - Sip of Sunshine
    Lagunitas - A Little Sumpin' Extra Ale
    Tilquin - Oude Gueuze
    New Glarus - Oud Bruin

    Grey Monday was the unanimous winner, followed by DB Jesus, and 16.
    Of the non stouts, A Little Sumpin' Extra won the honors from the majority, I believe.

    Another great night of drinking with friends.
    Thanks for hosting Paul and Vicki ~ Cheers!

    I skipped out on the multiple years of ToD (only had one) so I can't say for sure on those. For the BT, there was definitely noticeable differences. 09 and 11 were my favorites from that vertical and a few others agreed. I stopped taking notes after the BT but I recall noticing differences in GM and CR but couldn't give you specifics. Less hazelnuts, more chocolate notes, etc. Typical characteristics when doing verticals I'd say. Some things come in/out of balance as you move up or down the vertical. We started with the most recent years in all of them and worked to the oldest.

    Everything was done blind and with 4 other co workers. Ended up going Huna, Abraxas, Cake and Bomb in order of best to worst with a semi functional aggregate scoring system.
