    This was a spectacular surprise. Only got it because the bottle was unique. What a DAMN good beer.

    I am always amazed at how early this thread starts. Oh well, at least it gives me somethin to do when I'm half awake sitting in Sci class at 8 am. Anyway, this is from the other day, just never got a chance to post it. Seems xtra juicy this year. Every time I taste this it reconfirms my belief that this is one of the greats.

    Not drinking today but last night i went to my local irish pub for the super bowl. The place was dead outside when its usually bumping so that was nice. As soon as my server comes up the first thing he tells me is "just so you know we just got one keg of hopslam in today and we are running a special of it for as long as the super bowl is on".
    3.75 a pint! only bar in my whole city to get a keg too. Thanks to that blackout i got almost an extra hour of drinking time on it too. Great night.

    The beer is similar to Bourbon County Brand Stout in a lot of ways. Awesome stuff. Cheers!

    Homebrewed Damphbier. OG and FG were both slighly high but still came in at 4.5% ABV so that makes me happy. Pretty happy with the yeast profile also.

    However, drinking it by the quart may offset the low ABV :eek:. Cheers, All.

    I've been abstaining since I came down with the Flu (on day four), but it's amazing to me just how I enjoy the sensory experience of just looking at beautiful beers within elegant specialty glasses. I really feel that the visual component is important, so keep posting, and entertain me! :)
