    Is that the Blackout Stout? Want to trade? I love Great Lakes beers, especially their Porter, and have tried to get a hold of the Blackout Stout for quite a while - and I'm Ohio-based, just like Great Lakes Brewing. What?

    Picked up this small haul my medicine on my way home from the hospital.


    I have been waiting forever to try Lower De Boom Barleywine and the Luchador en Fuego sounds delicious. Our third anniversary beer up sizes Chocolate Sombrero, using extra ancho chili and adding chipotle peppers. We aged the brew 100% in Wild Turkey and Heaven Hill barrels.

    It's a blend of Hanssens and Lindemans lambic. Uli added 14 different fruits (don't ask me to list all 14 of them). Hence, fruit cocktails.:slight_smile:
