    Thanks man, and yeah DFH will always have a soft spot in my heart for basically turning me onto craft even though I rarely buy their beers anymore. But damn this aged d'Extra is drinking incredible.

    Yes you should, just be careful of the bottling dates. Mine is pushing 3 weeks old already. Don't put this trade off too long

    I made a knife in shop class back in high school, and some ninja stars, too. I really have no idea how I wasn't expelled...

    Was cleaning up a bit in my condo, the TV happened to be on Fox (oh gawd) and Idol happened to be on (kill me). I grabbed my growler of Live Oak Hefe and put this on the speakers, non ironically :D:

    Bought this last week. Carbonation is still great and the flavor has maintained.

    man this picture sucks, sorry.
    This Duck-Rabbit Barleywine just came in today. Pretty boozy at 11%, I kind of feel like it needs to age a year. But its still pretty good!

    Tonight:

    Fricking outstanding beverage, but I dont think I need to convince anyone on this one
    [​IMG]

    Very good brown ale! Nice robustness of flavor and mouthfeel and extremely drinkable.
    [​IMG]

    This was SO damn good. Such a great take on the Sahti style(and yes, I have had a few others). So robust with nice complexity of malty flavors and juniper notes; and very smooth. Haters of Sam Adams can get the hell out of my office. Their experimental small batch series has impressed quite a bit.
    [​IMG]

    The original kind of Black Metal BTW. Huge dark chocolate, coffee, char notes with a ton of robustness and complexity. So smooth to sip you wouldnt even think it was 10%. Outstanding.
    [​IMG]

    Hopslam and homebrews next. Cheers!

    Disappointed really. Not bad at all, but Sucks, PtE, and Abrasive are far superior, IMO.

    I had a double take when looking at your post because I cracked a black note yesterday and poured it in the exact same glass!!!

    Nice beer. Nice avatar. For some reason it still seems weird to me when other people like Mastodon. They used to be soooo underground. Love that band.

    Trying to not drink beer during the week, but my buddy picked me up a 6 pack of Hopslam and Nugget Nectar that I got today. Had to crack a Hopslam tonight!
