    You could always get some, and trade them to me for some west coast IPA's...

    There is a shitload of FBS around, if you post an ISO you will get a response fast.

    I guess I got lucky, my wife's favorite beer is bootleggers rustic rye- $3.79 a bomber...I gave her a taste of some heady topper I got in a trade, and she said "this tastes like my beer if my beer was nasty!" Man I love my wife!!!

    Well, it is a stout. So why not? You have to learn sooner or later.

    Why not try it? It seems, at least for me, it only takes one beer within a given style to open my eyes to that style. This could be a game changer, but who knows until you try it.

    Even if you don't care for some stouts, I would give it a shot. FBS is a great stout. For the longest time, I hated IPAs but a local month-long IPAfest at a local bar a few years back got me into the style. Now, my favorite beers are hop bombs (Head Hunter, Heady Topper, White Rajah, etc).
