    HAHAHAHAHAAAA! I'm a chick and a vegan! That day's not for me at all!

    However, I'll certainly drink a stout today. I likely would have gone with something else, since it's still summer weather here in sunny LaLaLand, but in honor of stout day I think I'll go with this lovely:

    Well, I never knew...

    I have several options to choose from:
    • Velvet Merkin
    • Velvet Merlin
    • BCBC (2013)
    • Woodcut No. 7
    • Ska's MolĂ© Stout
    • Warlock
    • TEN FIDY
    • Dragon's Milk
    • And a few other stout odds and ends...
    But I believe I'll open a bomber from my favorite local brew pub, Phantom Canyon, and enjoy a Snowblind RIS...

    So the local Norfolk breweries have gone completely apesh!t today.

    Smartmouth has a barrel aged imperial stout today, Velvet Glove.

    O'Connor have a Peanut Butter Stout, a PB+J Stout (unsure how the J comes about), And a Mexican Coffee Stout.

    I got a growler of the Velvet Glove... but the Mexican coffee stout might deserve a try this weekend.

    cool didn't even know it was and oddly enough I just poured myself a glass of a brand new stout that I found today that I had never seen or heard of before called "bb stout" by Bull Falls Brewery out of Wausau WI. Its the first ever bourbon Oatmeal stout I've ever had. it's beer # 996 for me, getting close to the 1000 mark. I rated it only a 3 btw...not great but not bad.

    Just finished my first SN Coffee Stout. Excellent! Now for a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout I've been saving for a special occasion(such as International Stout Day).

    Goose Island The Muddy - pretty solid imp. stout, though you can't really taste the anise. Reminds me of Green Flash Double Stout (good thing).

    Fubark Imperial Stout 2013, an oak-aged stout brewed with star anise. Not as wretched as when I drank it back in March or so...must have been the combination of hops and oak that threw me off. Still a bit too harsh to warrant a repeat purchase, as far as I'm concerned. A shame, really enjoyed their Chocolate Oatmeal Stout.

    Earlier I had Bourbon County Barleywine 2013, draft. It's aged in stout-bourbon barrels, so I figured it almost counts.

    Started with an Old Raspy, which was excellent, of course. Finished with a 2012 DFH World Wide Stout, which was phenomenal.
