    A beer in a can is worth two in the bush...or something.

    Found this guy while out of town earlier this weekend. Definitely a nice way to relax after a snowy Monday.

    Just cracked this beauty up. 2009 verison. This ages so well. so smooth. The 11% is barely there. Sweet dark fruits notes are present and pretty balanced. There is some slight oxidation in there, as expected, but it adds to the brew and is not a negative at this point. Well done North Coast.

    Well, not only is the wax a bugger to remove, the beer itself is a bugger in a way. I drank it at close to room temp, wrote my review, and now...drinking the last, what, 6 oz, and it's tasting better than what I gave it in the taste dept of my review. I'll be knackered.

    First time trying this one, and I was fortunate to get a hold of 2 of these bottles. Man is it good!

    Got down to the last sip before I could even take a picture. I've had Brownstone before, but am really enjoying it. I'm definitely a Sixpoint fan. 3Beans and Bengali in the fridge, but for another time. All for me tonight.

    Having my first Victory at Sea while taking a midterm for my Graduate Business Law class. Thankfully the beer is amazing (best porter ever?) and it's taking the edge off. Cheers!

    Wasn't going to drink tonight as I over imbibed at a tasting yesterday, but my new DFH/SN IPA glass showed up....I took that as a sign from the Beer Gods. Seems I've drank all my IPAs so I grabbed the only chilled DFH beer to christen the glass. Some may say it is an ugly glass, I think it is a sexy vessel. It is delicate though, to quote Will Smith I feel like I'm gonna break this damn thing. The ribbed base feels good in my hand.

    As for the beer, not bad, much like the Stone 16th, not sure how much I dig lemon in my beer.


    Off to watch The Walking Dead that I missed last night...Cheers all!

    And lastly, tonight, one of my first and still favorite Russian Imperial stouts:
    Ah, yes... Old Rasputin

    "The sea brings comfort, and the waves they talk. The sun shines on the water as it gently rises. You can see the face of God when you look at the sun. Your soul forgets everything as you wake from the dreams of life's worries. For the joy lifts your heart, and your soul sees the wisdom of life, and beauty. Indescribable beauty. Is the pain gone?"

    WTH - After a couple of SN Torpedo's with some pizza for dinner, came home and cracked open a DFH 120 IPA. Still drinking nicely. Doubt I can do much more, but maybe a Founders Porter to close the deal.
