    You're going to tell us what beers, but not which cigarettes? You're holding out on us.

    Finishing up with this that also landed today. Would have never known this was 10%abv. Very coffee forward. Nice beer. Sixpoint was always hit or miss with me. This is a hit.

    Nice work on the Genesis. Been lying one down for awhile now awaiting that special occasion that never seems to manifest. Time to drink? Could be.

    Happy Birthday to me!!!
    My wife made this great spread for me and the boys for my birthday.
    I had to compliment it with a nice Sam Smith's Yorkshire Stingo. It's a very good night.

    Just poured some more of the 32oz growler I got yesterday of Oak Aged Yeti, into my Double Bastard tumbler. Nice little glass for a big stout like this.

    7 days old to boot. If they ever can this I would buy it more frequently than Jai Alai.

    I think all the hop traits (oils, bitterness, pine, citrus, etc.) balance eachother perfectly to make a beautiful DIPA. Better than Pliny IMO

    Now onto a local Scotch Ale from this year's batch, I know it's not the correct glassware, but it's still a cool glass (got it from a tasting with last year's batch). Also, a little thinner than last year's batch.....still has a good flavor though.

    Having not had Pliny, I cannot corroborate this statement, but it is a bold one. I'm sure glad I was able to pick up a case of this hop nectar then.

    It does get better with age - Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, that is. I had four, drank three right quick, then found the last one about a year later...smoooooth as a baby's bottom!

    Believe it or not the bartender tried to talk me out of the genesis. Said it was awful and I wouldn't like it. He was very wrong it was magnificent! Better than the bolt cutter I had recently. And yes I am one that actually really enjoyed bolt cutter too.
