Bottled June 2010! The coffee is gone and it's a bit off. Experiment successful! Six years is too much for Breakfast stout!
Ok, I am old enough to know I think I pissed off the GF tonight.
I am also experienced enough to know it's my fault
I also think I know what I might have done
I am also also smart enough to know that what I thought in that previous sentence is probably wrong
Interesting. Sorry to brake the continuum:
Good evening BA, happy Friday! Hope everyone has a good start to the holiday weekend. Got my data reports published that are due next week today, so I have nothing to worry about for the whole weekend. I can expect numerous emails from higher management regarding that information though haha. Will be plenty of meetings to sort out the issues very soon.
Great pale lager! Fantastic head retention and dense lacing. Aromas and flavors of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, and piney hops; with light-moderate cracker/bready pils malt; and floral/grassy hop earthiness. A bit of peach/pineapple fruitiness is also in the aromas only. Light-moderate pine/citrus peel bitterness; smooth/crisp/dry finish; with light hop stickiness and grainy malt in the mouthfeel. Very refreshing! Nice robust hop flavors with a lighter malt backbone. Nice clean lagering, zero yeasty notes. As far as my "guess", other than the modest tropical notes in the aromas; the overall character is definitely very similar to Columbus or possibly Chinook hops. Very delicious stuff! 4.03
New brewery to me. Marz from IL, contracted cans at Against the Grain. This was outstanding! Aromas and flavors of big pineapple, peach, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, papaya, berry, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, pepper, and piney hops; with some toasted bread, light nutty/caramel malt; and herbal/floral/grassy hop/tea earthiness. Moderate pine/herbal/spicy/citrus peel bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied; crisp/sticky/resinous finish with a fair amount of grainy wheat in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing resin dryness; with slight hop/tea astringency. Claimed to be a Pale wheat ale with Rooibos tea, this more of a straight up IPA. Super bright and juicy mosaic hop complexity; with a solid malt backbone. Highly drinkable. 4.2
New Flying Monkey DIPA I found today. This was really nice. Fantastic head retention and dense lacing. Aromas and flavors of big apricot, pineapple, peach, grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit, mango, papaya, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, and piney hops; with moderate caramel, toasted biscuit, and light nutty malt sweetness; with herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Moderate pine/herbal/spicy/citrus rind bitterness on the finish. Medium-full bodied; with a very resinous/sticky hop finish with bready creaminess, and slightly slick/syrupy character in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing resinous dryness. Warming but smooth sipping. This was pretty much American Barleywine area on flavors; but was really juicy and aggressively bitter on hops with great complexity. Amarillo, Galaxy, FF hops. 3.93

Paulaner Brauerei - Paulaner Original Munich Lager by imbibehour, on Flickr
A celebration of malt and apparently some carbonation.
Couch potato time.
After a few Spaten Oktoberfests, this is an excellent contrast. I can pick up the hibiscus particularly well, and it has lime up the wazoo. Yet balanced and drinkable all the same.
BTW, folks, Spaten freaking kills it this year!
A great acquisition from a coworker in Philadelphia. I think I like Resin slightly better.
Pretty sure I'm not the first to reference this:
My wife worked on this while I drank that Special Sauce. I've created a monster!
A small pour left for me. Really nice. Chocolate, roast, and glad she saved me some! Probably will buy another bottle for a full review.
I'll be back and getting caught up on posts in a bit! Cheers all!
Welcome aboard!! And what a beer to pop your WBAYDN cherry! Just remember, you can only keep on going/posting up... so good luck with that...
Feeling strange at this moment. Maybe even some De javu kicking in. Seems I have been here before. Maybe I have been here the whole time and did not know it
Such an amazing beer. This is from 2012. Cheers!

Great DIPA, but I give the edge to The Juice is Loose.
I read some of your prior reviews (including One-T)and gotta tell you...
Really well done and documented reviews. The effort you put in shows.. Cheers.
I was happier not knowing this existed and that I have no hope in hell of getting my hands on any.
"Thar she blows!"
ok @TongoRad .. my stein is bigger than yours... seriously... I have more... you don't want to test me
Privatbrauerei Franz Inselkammer KG - Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen by imbibehour, on Flickr
I'm on this trend of drinking old IPAs tonight, but this is one I drank this shit out of and never posted, well, maybe once, but I never gave this the love it deserved. And, damn, it has held up well.
New 500ml format with bottle date of 8/29....Finally!
Hey! Where the fuck you been? Good to see you.
Made the long drive to get Tree House's King Julius tonight. Not regretting a second of it now. This beer may have the best mouthfeel of any beer I have had. Happy long weekend all.
I did s great dessert beer on occasion. Holy crap there's strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon! I don't know how they did this, but they nailed it!
Thanks, man! I really enjoyed One-T. Holy crap it hits my buttons. That and Lil' Brett—Allagash really pinned me with that one.
oh I have been around
Gotta love this weather!

Now that I've got some extra time in the evenings, I'm working on typing up some of my recent tasting notes that I hadn't yet had the time to submit to the database. Obviously I go out of my way to drink, taste, and write notes for beers I think I'm going to like, but sometimes one or another sticks out. Grimm Telekinesis is one of them: https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/32893/156483/?ba=fmccormi#review
This is from a couple of weeks ago:
So much drool. Goddamn, I loved drinking that beer. Can anyone tell me how to brew something like that, so I can just make my own constant supply? Lord almighty.
I've been drinking without posting. Sitting on my lazy, tired ass. I did just go pick up a sixer of Fist City though so I'm drinking one of those now. Flipping between Ivan Drago Rocky and Die Hard. No better than that.
You have one of my favorite avys, and I haven't seen yours in awhile.
Awesome. I loved Little Brett and had plenty of it past few months. Did you try Hugh Malone?
I have some of that waiting to be tried. I am headed to the store to pick up some One T (after reading your review!)
New York, Florida, Maine?
Make up your mind mother fucker,
Good evening BA'ers, it is downright chilly tonight, clocking in at about 57 degrees. I decided to bust out the pumpkin beers and came up with this one :
Did a review, nice copper color with ruby highlights, has a good aromatic profile with nutmeg and allspice; has a nice gourd, crust, and spice flavor to it; and though it didn't wow me completely It's not a bad alternative, I'd recommend you try it once.
Always a little disappointed with this one, but still manage to buy into it. Good, but...
I love aging posts. Thanks for sharing your expiriment!
I think Breakfast Stout is at its peak about right at the 1 year mark, maybe a month before. Just my opinion, others like it fresh or aged at different intervals, but I think I'll try some 2 and 3 year old ones down the road a bit too. Got about 20 chilling downstairs Outdated 4 packs for $5.99. Outdated my hind end! AGED! AGED I tell you!!
This band at its best.
Well, what it lacks in stature it makes up for in drunken gnomes . The ones depicted on it, as well as the ones who painted it .
