    Yeah, I was hoping to see some action by now. I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

    Sorry for the delay in beer porn (I had a new beer release party to go to tonight :) )...
    ...I now present to you "Fuck Yo Porch: A Stout Odyssey" by NickyT.

    The lil guys:
    [​IMG]
    Bells Expedition: permawant!
    Weyerbacher Old Heathen: want!
    Weyerbacher Heresy: had for the first time recently...want more!
    River Horse Oatmeal Stout: didn't know I should want!
    MBC Mean Old Tom: I've loved everything I've had from these guys...want!!
    New Holland Bourbon Barrel Dragon's Milk: wanttt!!
    Terrapin Moo Hoo: it's been a looong time...want!
    Troegs Mad Elf: should have wanted!
    Sly Fox Christmas 2013: another that wasn't on my radar...tis the season.

    The big boys:
    [​IMG]
    Bar Harbor Cadillac Mountain: if it wasn't a want already, it should have been!
    Port Brewing Santa's Little Helper: want!
    Ale Smith Speedway: bottled on my 30th birthday (7/2/13), how thoughtful...want!
    The Bruery Tart of Darkness: love sours and stouts...want!
    Hoppin Frog DORIS: hells yes want!
    Hoppin Frog BORIS: mmm hmm...want!
    Hoppin Frog Barrel Aged BORIS: dayyuuummm...want!

    And finally, an awesome piece of swag from my other hobby...disc golf:
    [​IMG]
    175g Innova Echo-Star Dart (putt and approach disc)...always want more discs!

    Seriously, I think that every stout in this box was on my Want list. A huge, giant thanks to NickyT for making my week! I just have to get through 10 more hours of work tomorrow, then I can really tear into this box over my 4 day weekend :D If you did that hop dye job on the disc yourself, then BRAVO! I tried my hand at stenciling a few times, and its very tedious work. I can't wait to bang some chains with that bad boy!

    Looks like its going to warm up over the next 2 days. I will pick my window based on the amount of snow on the ground and will ship out. Maybe tomorrow, maybe Friday but like Sandman you will have your boxes before Christmas (if thats your thing).

    I am going to the opening of the new facility of my favorite brewery this weekend. Chance of a tasty "limited" stout on growler fill.

    If you were my target, would you prefer to potentially get a growler of that and wait for me to ship til Monday, or have me ship by end of week?

    Just got my box from @johncosta60 today. I had my list narrowed down to three, and he was definitely on it.

    [​IMG]

    From left to right:
    The Bruery - Tart of Darkness
    Flying Dog - Green Tea Imperial Stout - I've never heard of this, definitely sounds interesting.
    Fiftyfifty - Eclipse - Another I have yet to try, and almost bought the other day. Good choice!
    Goose Island - Big John
    Epic - Big Bad Baptist (Release 10)
    Weyerbacher - Fifteen
    New Holland - Dragon's Milk (2012)
    Goose Island - Bourbon County Brand Stout - I would drink this ever day if I could get my hands on enough!
    Founder's - Imperial Stout (2011)

    My wants were pretty hard to hit, so you made some good choices. Thanks a lot man.

    I've narrowed down my sender to one of two and you weren't on the list but maybe I should go back and check. At this point, I give up.

    So I was on my drive home from working my 12-hour shift...after getting three and a half hours of sleep yesterday afternoon, after being up almost 27 hours in a row before laying down...and I was dead-set on going right to sleep when I got here.

    WRONG!

    I had to pick up the pieces of what remained of my porch after about 48 lbs in three boxes were dropped off before I got home:

    I love this. I had @bonkers on my list of three probable senders. Thank you so much man. I know my wants list was probably hard to hit with your location, but in this entire haul all but three beers will be new to me. You did a fantastic job with your selections. Thank You, Thank You!!

    Last note for now:

    I know those weren't the greatest of pictures, but I did what I could so that I can catch a nap and attempt to get my target's boxes out by tonight. I apologize in advance if under the circumstances of my opening lines, that this does indeed add one more day to me shipping out. I'm looking at getting about four hours today before trying to make last pick-up over there.

    Cheers all!

    To my target: its 2 business days to til the eagle lands. Until the status updates I will go ahead and assume you will have a Saturday delivery. Since its to cold to go on your boat - you should be able to do some damage over the holidays.
