    Where did you snag the Madhouse from? Price? American or English style? Sounds interesting as I've had their barrel aged stout that wasn't bad and the imperial red...

    White Chocolate Moo Hoo... :slight_frown:

    Looking high and low. I don't think I've noticed a sighting any further north than maybe South Carolina so far.

    Went to Tree House for some Curiosity Five and That's What She Said. Picked up some other things on the way home. And a good time was had by all.

    The Madhouse hits HyVees Monday but you could pick some up for $10 at Jasper Winery off George Flagg Pkwy starting Friday afternoon. I wanted some for the games today! A little hot but I think it's their best beer to date. Really enjoyed it. Used Cedar Ridge barrels. Normally I stick with their TRye Stout or Imperial Red as well. Really impressed with this one!

    Doesn't say but I think it's American Barleywine, reminds me a little of Central Waters offering.

    Hope that is helpful. It's fairly limited. I think they made about 1000 bottles.

    Oh man! My mom lives in NOLA, had the Miel Sauvage, Mecha, and the Hopitoulas, they are all very good. Being a huge fan of barrel aged stuff, the Miel Sauvage is one of my current favorites.

    Would suggest getting on that Urine Trouble sooner than later. I just opened my last bottle from the July release and it was now an unfortunate drain-pour. The brett just over-dominated everything else about the brew now. Fresher was definitely better.

    I can't wait to start cracking them open. The trades I've made with all of my buds have been amazing, with amazing beers. Looking forward to the NOLA's and the Tin Roof.

    I finished 3/4 of my glass (a 16 oz pour) and then just didn't want any more of it. Sharing is caring with that one, that way you're not the only one suffering. :stuck_out_tongue:
