    First time firing up one of these, but I couldn't help it. Noticed this last night:

    Popped it in the fridge, emergency drinking of this first thing in the morning. I hope the bad capping job has not doomed this beer.

    Sipping on it now or breakfast, whew that is some good stuff. Good mouthfeel and no noticeable oxidation.

    Cheers!

    Looks flat with no noticeable head. Did it loose all carbonation from the bad cap?

    It never really has a ton of carbonation, and with this one 4 months old its bit too bad. It is by no means flat. There is still just enough carbonation to enjoy it. Not the best BCBCS I ever had, but we are talking about 1st world problems here.

    Hmmm... There must be a reason they call it Breakfast Stout. Turns out there is, and it's perfect for a morning getmeup. Wish I had more of the other one, I'd be having a Kentucky breakfast. But I guess that has to wait until later. Thank you, Founders.

    Drinking my first ever bottle of KBS!! My prior experience with this beer was a 1 oz sample at GABF. 12 oz is much better. What a wonderful lunch. Cheers!

    Starting the day of with a CCB Capricho Oscura batch 5. Only have one more left and I'm a bit depressed now. Seriously, probably one of the best beers I'll ever have, and hands down the best BA beer by CCB.

    [​IMG]

    Nothing really going on today, so I may end up hitting up Rapp Brewery in a bit.

    Edit: Judging by the pics above, I should have opened up a Bourbon County instead. Did I miss the memo or something?

    Cheers!

    A lot of people (well, speculating here but still) would complain that they should get a free bottle for this (not that they would be necessarily wrong), but honestly you deserve another one for the fact that you didn't complain and moan about a bad cap. Bravo unclejazz.

    Hösle Weissbier Resi. Its a good Bavarian brewed Weiss beer. Accents of banana and the classic Weiss beer flavor. Kinda leaves a strange aftertaste in your mouth though....

    i cant find this damn stuff, and im only 2 hours SE of the brewery. i tried calling around this morning, and everyone was like rude to me. I guess calling about a beer inthe morning is frowned upon here in north central OH.

    Now revisiting an old friend. The first beer that made me realize there is better beer out there rather than just BMC.

    Just sippin some Southern Tier oak aged barleywine. I'm kinda played out on the sweet ales and now prefer more hop forward ales like IPA's or even sours. I would not have guessed that of myself a year ago, that's for sure. ~happy tippling~
