    Thank you! It was like a two minute pour to keep it seperated. Both bottles are from 2011

    After 14 years in the classroom, I'm going to say you've probably over-planned.
    Do not under-drink son.

    I do a slow pour with the entire botttle of 120 to fill most of the glass then do a really slow pour over the biggest cereal spoon I have. I lay the top of the bottle on the spoon and let it trickle out, you don't want it to pour into the bottom beer, just kinda splash off the top, the shortest distance it falls the better off you are.

    Yes, yes it is. (If the two reactions are directly related then you have something to cheer about and deserve a high five.)

    Jeff, read this book! Or I meant I SUGGEST this book! hehe A great insight into the Italian mind. And A quote from here can also sum up the approach to Italian craft:

    "Italian cuisine merely presents Nature at its best."

    When it come to the craft, I believe sometimes we seek something SO powerful and sometimes we forget the simple or elegance that comes from Nature!

    This one is dedicated to all my friends here! Cin cin and drink well! :D

    Planned on doing a fair amount of day drinking while prepping food for the Super Bowl, but unfortunately I was stuck at work til almost 4. Just enough time to get home and watch the Pens-Caps game on DVR before the start of the big game. Just cracked this one to start things off.

    One brother told me he would drink his Sucks if drank one of his beers. I hadn 't tried Bells' Christmas Ale before. It's Ok but I think he got the better end of the deal. And yes, I am reluctantly red solo cupping it. Not my house.

    You know what the advantage of that cup is? You don't have to wash them by hand like your regular glassware. Drink up like a boss without the glassware washing worries.

    I would like to make one comment: My buddy said I might be on to something with this love of Italian beers, as I see no one else spurring a movement of sorts in my area. I feel that by sharing my knowledge I might encourage others to venture here(and by the looks of some, I have). But once again I might have started something and I might be the one leading it! :D Who is willing to follow? heheh

    Smoky as hell at the beginning. But, when it settles, loads of chocolate. Yummy!
