    Old Viscosity and then maybe a bottle of Czar with my girlfriend. You'd be one BMC lover to get rid of a girlfriend who can throw back Old Viscosity and say, "it's not as rich as the Founders RIS I ordered a few weeks ago."

    Like, absolutely had to pick up another bottle of the Barrel-Aged Bigfoot... and I did!

    Opted for the flute glass this time 'round. I hate that this is a one-time deal, because SN really nailed it. Then again, if I'm knocking back bombers of this on back-to-back nights, maybe its a good thing that it won't be around... ;)

    Cheers, all!

    Wow! The most cocoa/chocolaty beer I've ever had. Really thick mouthfeel, due to the huge amount of cocoa used in this stout.

    Wife is back....I played it cool, she has no idea I am tipsy. Peering through the depths of the fridge I see a Troegs bottle neck....could it be another Nugget Nectar I missed? Nope....it's a Java Head. Guess this will....oh......this isn't bad at all.

    I've yet to try the 2011. How's the bourbon taste compared to 2012?

    I have to say, your review makes it sound pretty damn good. A barleywine that's earthy, strong, and musky but not overly sweet or boozy. Sounds like my kinda beer!

    How much did you pay for a bottle, if you don't mind my asking?
