    Tomorrow is our 42nd wedding anniversay (so I am told). Because this beer is hard to find around my neck of the woods and we both like it, it seemed only right to share it. A Lost Coast product. Wish they distributed it more often around RVA.

    Welcome to science project Monday. Some BAs have recently mused/compared Central Waters' latest BBA Scotch Ale (9.5%) to Founders' Dirty Bastard (8.5%), and given this is my last week "baching" it before Mrs. Zombies returns from the islands, I figured a side by side was in order:

    On appearance, DB wins hands down. Bigger fluffier cap, longer cap retention, heavier lace, and ruby brown (24) vs deep brown (30) with ruby overtures:

    Here things get interesting. SA has a stronger sweeter nose and a sugary, molasses, peat/smoke, fig tongue. DB is well balanced caramel malt and whiskey.

    The texture is richer and mouthfeel creamier in the SA. The body lighter with a dry finish with DB.

    Overall I like both fairly equally. I like the rich sugary complexity of SA, the steady malt and whiskey of DB, and the warmth of both outstanding ales. Cheers!

    Home brew pale ale in tap! Started out as an India pale ale then I only used 3/4 the hops to save for another brew and wham-o! Ended up a pale ale similar to dales pale ale. Here's to Monday's BA!

    Some Mondays are better than others. On this one, I picked up a 6er of BP Grapefruit Sculpin, bottled 11 days ago. BP is now in Tennessee! Cheers!

    Oh I guess I'd give it a 60. It's spicy and it's not too bad. I wouldn't want to drink too many of them though.

    Was reading that Paste article IPA rankings and I got to MBC Another One and started drooling. Had to go on a beer run. I've been drinking a ton of it lately, I wonder if I'll tire of it? So far... nope, still Delicious.

    So I finally picked one of these up today. Just seemed weird to me but I love coffee and IPA's. Obviously I should have bought the 6 pack. It's delicious. Also one should not eat sushi while sitting on the couch with the soy sauce cup on your plate. There was a small incident while checking BA on my phone.

    Cheers!

    Would've been a perfect beer for next Thursday (the 18th) :wink:.

    (this will seem a horribly strange comment without the context of the theme day on that date)

    No bottle date at all. Honestly this one was not a favorite. A little on the sour side. Their Aurora is much more to my taste.
