    They're goin' all 666 in NBS... figured I'd come over and bless WBAYDN with a Big Bad Baptist. Batch #56 bottled September 2015, aged since then in my cellar. Cheers!

    Vermont re-up is coming in a couple weeks. The addition of cans at Hill Farmstead has made the shelf beer mix / quantity mix & match math much harder. #GoodProblems

    This is not a stout but a black IPA. Looks and even taste somewhat like a stout other than a hint of hop bitterness. Brewed by Veil. One of several brews released on Friday as part of their Dark Daze celebration.

    At Bosque enjoying a Bourbon Barrel Aged Double Sunshine Stout.

    This is the only "blond" stout I have tried and I totally disagree with the label of stout. I tried the base beer a year ago and was not a fan at all, probably in large part because I was expecting something very different from what I got. I am definitely enjoying this beer today but I think that has a large part to do with the fact that I went in with a clearer understanding of what to expect.

    When I drink a stout I expect some of the following: roast, coffee, char, dark chocolate, and/or milk chocolate. I get nothing of the like here. With this I get white chocolate, milk, vanilla, bourbon, and oak (the latter trio, courtesy of the barrel).

    I also dropped some Haagen Dazs dulce de leche ice cream into my bourbon for dessert, but it looked so ugly, I didn't take a pic - fantastic-tasting though!

    Back around now, with bourbon barrel Ten Fidy...

    I agree with your stout expectations. Anything other than what you described would be a let down. Based upon your review, I may steer clear of "blond" stouts unless they are part of a beer flight.

    Good evening, all! One of the guys at church this morning told me he had picked up some beer while he was visiting family in Ottumwa, and that he had one for me in his car. He comes up with some interesting stuff from time to time, so I was anxious to see what he had. When he took it out of the bag, I about fell over. It was a 2017 BCBS (!) He'll get a chance to see how it stacks up against the 2015 and 2016 when I do my vertical on these. (I warned him he'd probably have to Uber home.) Here is another gift from a fellow beer geek: Entrenched IPA, from Alarmist Brewing in Chicago. Interesting "Illinois style" IPA, brewed to showcase the malts as well as the hops. In a word, outstanding.

    Whiskey and bourbon. You my friend have your act together. I have been floating a rule that BAs can post one non beer pic a night. My wife calls it "Mike is a stupid ass" rule named after yours truly

    Anyway, nice pics!

    Seems you have your act together at least as compared to me. I am getting into the stout thing recently (liver wants something other than IPAs and DIPAs). Maybe it is the cooler weather but I am starting to form my own opinions about stouts and very much appreciate other opinions.

    I bought two four packs of a Veil stout (Hornswoggler) that seem to hit the spot. I would welcome any suggestions you have.

    Canned 11/16/17.

    Got home from NJ 45 minutes ago and this tastes better than the one I had on the Jersey Shore Wednesday night.
    The reason is, that night it followed a couple, three DIPAs. Pretty tasty right now!

    You think I have my act together? Have you been drinking?

    As for stout recommendations.....its always tough to make recommendations to those in other markets. I have always been a fan of Ipswich's Oatmeal Stout, any Epic coffee stout like Big Bad Baptist and Son of a Baptist, Deschutes Black Butte Porter, Left Hand's Milk Stout (regular > nitro, IMO), Founders Porter, Bell's Expedition Stout (and I really want to try their Porter), Oskar Blues Ten Fidy, amongst others that might be available in your neck of the woods.

    Yes, I have been drinking but that would be the answer most of the time.

    I have had a few of the stouts you listed. I especially like Left Hands Milk stout and Ten Fidy. Gonna try a few of the others you listed.

    Thanks for your help!

    I think I am going to open a stout as soon as I hit the post reply buttton.
