    Not too bad. Once I poured it I wish I poured am IPA instead so my thoughts on it might be a little low, but overall it was a good beer.

    Nice evening for a Hill Farmstead Genealogy of Morals. Coffee and spice still holding up nicely.

    Someone today mentioned that this Sam Adams beer was good so I'm giving it a shot before I open up some of my favorites in a bit. Cheers!

    Thankfully the espresso won't overpower the alcohol and keep me awake; great beer

    Great Divide Colette. This is what I want a saison to be. Refreshing yet rustic and not overloaded with spices.

    Just masterful. I had the pleasure of seeing Gilberto Gil appear briefly in concert in Salvador, Bahia in 2006 with Olodum and some other singer, maybe Marisa Monte. Regardless, I love Gil, I love this song, I love its composer (João Gilberto) and his recording just as much, and I love Bahia. Saudades . . . boa noite, galera.

    Lyrics are weak, like Clock Radio Speakers.

    One of the greatest lines ever spit.

    I love Red Seal. Going to be looking or some fresh this year. Saw it in a couple stores lately, but no date and plenty of dust means no sale.

    Friday Night re-rate night!

    Haven't had this since 2010 lol. Really nice stuff as expected.

    :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:. My palate must have been at the kids table when I had this in early 2011. This is probably one of the top 3 most complex beers I have ever had in my life. Bottled in Aug 2009. The nose is an EASY 5/5. Taste is raisin, fig, molasses, toast, toffee, prune, leather, tobacco, chocolate, roasted malt, dark bread, light char, earth, wood, and herbal earthiness. FUCK. Just gave a 4.7, and I have hardly given anything even a 4.3 lately.

    I've been looking all over for this after being impressed by the Golden Monkey 750 I got last year. Had this before I even liked Belgians. As for now, I have to say this is highly excellent. A bit bready and nutty; with nice fruity yeast complexity and no booziness at all. Victory may get hate from some of you, but I have been satisfied with most offerings. Great Quad.

    Homebrews and Sucks and Netflix next. Cheers

    Moved onto the mini growler of TH Ego. Very refreshing kiwi Berliner. You can really smell and taste the kiwi in this one. Very light and easy drinking for sure.
