    Tasting from last night.

    From Left to Right:

    -Unlabeled, gold crown 2007 Portsmouth Kate the Great(brought by special guest Tod Mott)
    -The Bruery Fruet
    -'11 Foothills Olde Rabbit's Foot
    -Cigar City/The Bruery Dos Costas Oeste-Cedar Aged
    -'08 Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus
    -'11 De Struise Black Albert
    -'08 Midnight Sun Berserker
    -'11 Great Divide BA Yeti-which was NOT infected! ;)
    -3F Armand'4 Lente
    -Westbrook Mexican Cake
    -'10 GI Bourbon County Vanilla
    -'12 FFF Bourbon Dark Lord w/Vanilla Beans
    -'11 Cantillon Gueuze 100% Lambic-Bio
    -'12 Dark Lord
    -'11 FiftyFifty Eclipse Elijah Craig 18 year
    -'12 The Bruery Chocolate Rain
    -'10 Portsmouth Kate the Great
    -2x unlabeled '12 Portsmouth Kate the Great(also brought by Tod Mott)

    Nothing too crazy, but pretty solid tasting! Mostly stouts obviously. The Bourbon Vanilla DL seemed to be the winner out of the stouts. Chocolate Rain came in second and the BCS Vanilla and Berserker tied for 3rd. The Lente was phenomenal and the Cantillons were exquisite as expected.

    so glad I was out of town to miss that one... going to a closet to cry :(

    edit: at least I was in Phoenix, which we all know has a way better beer scene, so in reality I WIN...right?
