    Split a bottle of Cab barrel aged Below Decks. The wine barrel treatment works well with the English barleywine, accentuating the dark fruits with slight tartness and oak.

    My girlfriend is drinking a homebrewed coconut porter, reportedly "the best beer [she's] had in [her] life."

    I nodded, pleased with the compliment, and the ability to keep these to myself.

    Congrats! I love your avatar - I saw HH in person once, I was eating lunch in an empty dining room of the Outback Steakhouse on Clearwater Beach with a buddy when none other than this towering man, the Hulk, and his children walk in and sit the next booth over to have lunch, it was a humbling experience.

    Started the night with a Bells Midwestern Pale Ale. I love some of Bells beers, but man oh man, why can't they make a decent Pale Ale. This one is about as bad as their last Pale Ale.

    Followed that with a 21st Amendment Bitter American. Pretty good!

    It's a well done DIPA, pretty nice balance between citrusy and piney/resinous notes and the sweet malts. Goes down really easy for almost 9%, I'd probably go a bit below the average rating at like a 90 because it didn't blow me away and I would have liked a bit more citrus bite and a touch less syrupy sweetness.

    Yeah, until her beer journey progresses, then be prepared to defend the fort unless your coconut porter is so outstanding it beats out BCS! ( :eek: )

    Very good Wit. A bit watery but the balance and complexity is nice. Very drinkable.

    I had a similar experience and I'm glad it wasn't just me.

    Hells yes! Northwest Ohio native here...whenever people talk about great amusement parks and roller coasters, I just snicker. I may not be a beer snob, but don't talk to me about the best roller coasters until you've been to Sandusky.

    Was in Portland today and happened to stop by the brewery. Managed to pick these two beauties up. Also got to try the FV13 which was incredible as well.
