    Christmas gift from the owner of the store I work at. The haul was assembled by someone not named me, as there are quite a few brews I would've subbed for others. Regardless, it's a very large haul, free of charge.

    By brewery:
    Stone IPA, Double Bastard, Sublimely Self Righteous, Russian Imperial Stout, Arrogant Bastard, Ruination
    Greenflash Imperial IPA, Le Freak, Trippel
    Blue Pants(Madison, AL) Tuxedo Black IPA, Knickerbocker Imperial Red, Highwater Hoppy Tripel
    Boulder Mojo IPA
    Moylan's Moylander DIPA, Norcal IPA, Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale
    Coney Island Sword Swallower
    Spanish Peaks Big Bite IPA, Big Bite Peach Wheat<---both of these are awful
    Sam Adams Dark Depths Baltic IPA
    Laughing Dog Dogfather, Rocket Dog, Anubis, Dogzilla, Alpha Dog
    Ass Kisser Smoked Porter
    Straight to Ale(Huntsville, AL) Intimidator Doppelbock
    Left Hand Smoke Jumper
    Rogue Juniper Pale Ale
    Abita Lost Abbey
    Fort Collins Incredible Hop DIPA and Wet Hop(this has been on the shelf for ages, I'm not expecting good things)
    McNeill's Dark Angel Stout
    Lagunitas Hop Stoopid

    I've reorganized the bunch by IPAs, I'm hoping there's some freshness in the bunch. If not, I can swap an old for a new ;).

    Hmmm Black Xantus was interesting..Also as im fairly new into craft beers...only become serious in the last year I find I'll buy anything really just to try it...And I thought that seriously backfired after buying the Drakonic, thought it was horrible!!! And I love imperial stouts more then anything. Guess Craft beer doesn't = great beer always[​IMG][​IMG]

    Right?!? I scoured a 20 mile radius every 2 days or so and came up empty. First time that's happened.

    stxSS07 Nov 23, 2010 Illinois

    I didn't really hunt for it...I mostly just want one because the 2 guys I got into craft told me how much they wanted to try it.

    Damn Chicago neckbeard madhouse.

    I blame my lack of face/neck hair as the reason I couldn't find one.

    I love it. #2 favorite BCBS by a bit over Bramble, a lot over Vanilla. Rare still owns my heart though.
