    Insane box from perhaps one of the most generous souls that I've ever dealt with on BA, camil1mj.....keep in mind, he did me the service of being my "proxy" for the Winter Solstice and this was the full haul. So incredible. The seriously crazy part? Sent me the BBBW (limit 1) as an extra. The mind wobbles...and on top of that, his buddy helped me out with a replacement black logo tulip that I clumsily destroyed in a freak pillow-fighting accident (long story). Big ups to a long-time trading partner. Mike, you're not just a man, you're the man.

    My gal said "Hey! That liquor store has lotto tickets. Wanna stop?" Who am I to say no to my girlfriend? :wink:


    The little haul with a couple of big tastes! It'll be my first time for both and thanks to you all in the "What are you drinking now" posts for inspiring this latest haul. Cheers! (Sorry 'bout the crappy photo.)

    That's killer....exactly the type of haul that I like to see....

    BTW, the last couple bottles of that Guinness Silver Jubilee that I've opened were absolutely delicious. Almost took on a nice smokey sweetness over the years. Infinitely better than any fresh Guinness that I've had.

    Damn, really? Can't wait to open it now, especially as it was only £4
  26. Knifestyles

    Knifestyles Initiate (154) Jun 7, 2005 New York

    I've actually had quite a few great experiences with a whole slew of Silver Jubilees.....only a few duds out of maybe 20 or so. The Guinness was one of the bigger surprises as expectations were immediately low. I'd assume that the original base recipe had something to do with it......perhaps similar to the Foreign Export.

    I'd encourage you to track down an Ansell's Silver Jubilee if you have the means. Still one of my favorite "uber-vintage" beers to date.

    The moment of anticipation:


    followed by the big reveal:


    Evolution #3 x 6
    Green Flash West Coast IPA x 4
    Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA x 6
    DC Brau Corruption
    Boulevard Double Wide
    Terrapin Oak Aged Big Hoppy Monster
    plus 2 of the trader's APA home brews!

    Had a vague idea what my end of the trade was going to be.....didn't expect it to be this sweet! Thanks Evan.

    Stocked up on these. Putting them away for future consumption. :stuck_out_tongue:

    BTW, If anyone is looking for a trading partner in Florida, I'm more than welcome. I'm trying to expand my horizons.
