    After a week of getting slammed at work, and with the thought of having to go back in early tomorrow lingering in my mind, I decided it was a Zhukov kind of night. I always forget how amazing this beer looks, I wish the picture did it justice. Prettiest pour on the planet.

    Hope you are enjoying the beer. The Cure will forever go down as probably my favorite band of all time. I have lots of favorites, but they are tops!

    Got my hands on a growler of Fuzzy Baby Ducks by NEBCO. Delicious of course.

    My actual pic didn't work out. I figured the above worked. Cheers all.

    I had a Hopslam, then a Founders Imperial Stout, then rummaged through my fridge and found a Big Eddy Baltic Porter... which does not live up to its predecessors. Oh well, it's not unpleasant, just not nearly as good.

    Don't like this quite as much as Hopslam, but the fact that I can get it whenever I want, at half the price, puts it in constant fridge rotation. Along with Sucks of course.

    On a whim I picked up some nearly-year-old Matilda today, that I saw sitting on the shelf for that whole time-
    [​IMG]
    Hooooleee cowwwww!!! This is so much different (and betterer) than last year- the brett is in full force by now. The next one I see I'm definitely laying down for a while. And, to think, I could've just let this one slip through my hands...

    I'm feelin' kind of spiritual right now-
