    What are your thoughts on this? Saw it in the store for $19.99, is it worth it?

    I've been sick for the past few days. I'm back and having this brew for the first time while watching Big Bang Theory. Great beer, I don't think Avery gets talked about enough. I would drink it out of my DFH IPA glass but my wife broke it......oh well.

    That actually helps me, so I thank you! Trust me when I say I am not here ever to push this love for it, rather I need to focus and not get off topic.

    Very kind words and something I forgot to say in reference to this. As quick as I can, I understand that some of my ways can be misunderstood, but I try, oh man do I try to be humble and keep my ego in line. Rather I am a nice man who shares, and tries to do things for people in my daily life. Thank you for humbling me and seeing my errors because it is NOT my goal to force any of this because I admit I come too strong and yes it is not the cultural differences that make it excusable, but my lack of focus and sincerity.

    Hipsters! The very thing Italians disagree with! Seriously! Anti culture to the max!

    Broke it already?! I am drinking out of mine now, found them at my local grocery store of all places for $5!!! That being said, they do feel light and can pretty much tell I am going to break one.

    I believe it's misunderstood. I find your complete enthusiasm of all things Italian craft to be infectious. You should definitely start that youtube channel so I can follow it. Part of my fear of Italian craft is the price, unfortunately. I find it hard to drop 25-30 on a bottle that I may not enjoy. If you reviewed them first, that would help myself and others understand what it is that we are missing.

    Cheers!

    Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree

    This is the beer that lured me away from bourbon and whiskey in '06.

    A momentous occasion such as this calls for a Maction snack
    (triple cream and baguette).

    I must say you gained a lot of respect from me tonight. It takes a real man to open themselves up to public criticism and and even bigger man to listen to suggestions that may not be easy to hear.

    I think admitting your faults can be life's greatest challenges and one I face with courage. Suggestions are always something I keep open to and this advice from you is also the most kind. Could I have said this when I was younger? Maybe! :D

    Cheers!

    To be fair no glass would have survived the drop from the counter. I just learned never to leave glasses out on the drying rack when the wife is doing stuff in the kitchen.

    One of my favorites but have not had for 6 months. I really forgot how much this tastes like a chocolate malt with a little brown sugar added. Just wish it was a tad thicker. Good stuff.
