    Oh yeah once you're done drinking the wine, it's fun to tip the glass and shake it a bit to get the soaked berries. Yum!

    Once again, I drank way more than I posted and probably should have. Now home. Finishing up with a Golden Road Brewing Heal The Bay IPA.

    Probably one more than I should be drinking. But hey, YOLO.

    My job, drink beer. I do it well.

    Finishing off what turned out to be an excellent brew - big and bold, like a Double Bastard, but with a sharp bitterness that tightens the body - the hoppage is expectedly dank, just dripping with pine and citrus resinousness...

    Watched both Reality Bites and Foul Play earlier...

    Listening to Soilwork's new album now...


    The rest isn't on YouTube yet, but there's a teaser for the album...

    Cheers... :wink:

    Catching up. 53rd bday today. Lots of football and family gatherings. Started off with a wilco tango bomber followed hy a ruination 2.0 and a Pinedrops. Then off to dinner to a funky Mexican place that is ramping it up. Had lobster pork belly chorizo tacos with a little Sumpin and a chaotic double IPA. Needless to say a great day

    Yes I recommend it. I'll tell you about my first experience with it. I had seen some youtube reviews and got really curious to see if the genuine coffee aroma and taste were real. Needless to say it delivered. Pour it and you'll smell fresh ground coffee. Taste it and you'll get cold pressed coffee with carbonation. Absolutely worth trying if you like coffee.

    Otter Creek Backseat Berner. Swear this beer has Summit in it. Nice and dank. Probably have another by the end of the night.

    Watching Gaslight. Doesn't really get much better than Ingrid Bergman

    Told ya I'd be back with a Ten FIDY. What's ironic, is that on this day, 9/5/15, WBAYDN #1050, is exactly 2 years to the DAY of when it was canned. I couldn't have planned this. Destiny?

    @Ozzylizard , thanks for the trade of this carefully aged brewski!



    Review :

    4.12/5 rDev -4.4%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

    Poured into a globe snifter glass from a 12 oz can aged 2 years, exactly - as in 9/5/13. Wow, didn't mean for that to happen intentionally!

    A : Pours a tarry, motor oil 100% black out of the can, creating a reddish almond head of about 2 fingers. It's not too large, even small for this snifter, but it sticks around with a mossy layer of salmon-colored froth on top, also adhering softly to the sides as its swirled.

    S : Lots of Russian going on here. A strong alcohol presence with hits of rum, chocolate (chip, syrup, burnt, powder), oats, anise, and burnt malts. Some fig and cherry notes as well.

    T : This is highly burnt, both in malts and in alcohol. It's not a bad burn, but a smooth one. It's like a fire cavern in your mouth. Some black licorice underneath, with burnt chocolate chip cookies that were left in the oven too long (the crunch, the char, and the melted chocolate). Overall I'm left craving more chocolate, oatmeal, and depth.

    F : The feel of this beer is highly sophisticated, and powerful. It's a creamy wash of depth and electricity, like firecrackers going off in a froth of heavy cream. It ends burnt and relatively dry.

    O : This is a solid Imperial Russian Stout, but not quite my favorite. What it has going is lots of power, burn, screamin' alcohol, and some nice chocolate/licorice notes. I could have used more versatility in flavor and not as much linearity of the one-noted burnt alcohol/chocolate. I'm sure by the time I'm done with this snifter I'll be close to nap time. Already feeling this.

    Cheers!! I think you'll like it. Think freshly made black coffee. Yeah it's a brown ale but you really don't get much other than pure coffee. At the back end maybe a bit of the brown ale aspect but 1 word sums this beer up....coffee. Regular Bender offers a bigger variety of flavors like chocolate, coffee, vanilla, etc.
