    My home brewed Rye Saison...not too shabby. Might use more rye next time, but otherwise the Saison flavors are solid. I thought I added a lil extra priming sugar to juice up the carbonation, but this one had very little head retention

    Ya know, that's the really cool thing about some of these hop bombs, they can be enjoyable young and old and when they're old, just ignore the label. Case in point, I had a 2007 - 3 Sum Double IPA (Barrel Aged) from Shoreline brewery last year (obviously, an IPA that old was going to be less than stellar for the style). If you look at the label and see D-IPA, one would be disappointed; I split it with a good friend, we eventually ignored the label and the beer became an amazing barley that we thoroughly enjoyed (and what would have been considered a disaster otherwise). The situation really got me thinking and opened another dimension of beer when it otherwise may have been a drain pour.

    Just popped a bottle a 2012 bottle of Smuttynose Baltic Porter. Damn this beer is good. Big coffee and chocolate notes. Just amazing. (Too lazy for a pic. Trust me. It rules)

    It's pretty good. Not very complex. The bourbon is subtle, but present--wish there was more, but BCBS has spoiled me. Decent chocolate presence. I probably won't grab another, but that's not to say that I don't like it.
