    Discogs is a great resource. I use it all the time to check what edition I am looking at. Much like Beer Advocate, it is updated based on users input, but they will list every edition they can for a given album. So if you are trying to determine what year a specific Blue Note or Beatles edition you are looking at (two particular examples I can never keep straight) it is all there with pictures and category numbers.

    Discogs is nice because you can negotiate on price or shipping or just walk away if you can’t agree.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    I had this at sunset with a Arturo Fuente King. Perfect combo. Cigar was quite enjoyable.[​IMG]

    Thanks, she's a tough cookie so it's hard to tell how much pain she's in, she doesn't do pain medication but she's doing surprisingly well.

    I do 95% of the cooking anyway. I guess I just picked up laundry and vacuuming, she told me she's milking it for all it's worth.

    Really delicious. Been trying to buy Micheladas more often lately. Aromas and flavors of tomato juice, lime, salt, garlic, onion, celery, chili peppers, peppercorn, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce; with lighter notes of cracker/bready malts and herbal spice earthiness. Very mild herbal bitterness and pepper spiciness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body. Creamy tomato and grainy malt body; with slight sticky spiciness. Slightly increasing spicy dryness. No cloying. Very drinkable and pretty refreshing, 4.1%. Slightly increasing lingering pepper spice heat after the finish. Liked this one more than the Modelo's last year; but I got more to revisit the reviews. I didn't like the style at the time.

    I think it's time for another week of deathcore. This band is SICK. I forgot about them for a while.

    I have only purchased a handful of things that never thought I would ever find otherwise. Personally, I have had good experiences with those sellers but there are some that I just want to punch. For instance Esperanza Spalding's album Exposure I really really want. Though it was only sold on a specific day at a specific time. So like rare beer assholes purchased everything and are selling it for $200+. Which is asinine. So, like everything you have to be aware of what what you are willing to spend, and be smart.

    Anyway, thanks for the discussion @TheGent and @joe1510 , I'm out for the rest of the night. Its been fun.

    Probably a complete idiot, well, I know I am, but I popped this open after my NBS beer. Again, to keep with the Valkyrie Brewing 25th anniversary theme, their Big Swede beer.

    This batch seems to have a hint of smoke I didn't get in previous ones. I love smoke in beer. I so want to go back to Dallas soon, if it were possible.

    I like hitting consignment stores, the other mans trash kinda thing. Guys cleaning out attics and garages, better prices by far. You just have to look thru a ton of Conway Twitty crap here, but got t some nice CCR , Doobies for a song. It just takes a shit load of looking.

    Decently priced for what it is, $55 here. But it’s nice. Depends what your bourbon budget is.

    I keep Makers at all times.

    I stopped putting up my ratings last year on this forum and NBS, but one could always find them on the beer's link that I usually provide. However, this gem requires a bit of urgency. :wink:

    https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/29600/95992/

    I decided to post the "after" pic of my last Russian River glass. While I was on the phone, Uncle Harry the 13 year old rescued Maine Coon mix, jumped up on my desk causing me to grab the glass and tap the bottle with it. He always wants to get in on the conversation. I probably lost about one third of the beer as I had drank about a third of the glass at that point.

    4.67/5 rDev +8.6%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

    375 ml. bottle.
    Brewed 7.1.2017.
    Bottled 11.8.2018.
    852 bottles.
    9.24% abv.
    Moderate to vigorous pour yields a 1/2 inch off white head over a reddish- orange body with scant lacing. Wonderfully complex nose of spruce, whole ground mustard, herbed vinegar, citrus, and a bit of funk and forest. Akin to a nice hike in spruce woods. Taste tries to mirror the ever-evolving nose, but doesn't quite make it. What it makes is absolute deliciousness. Taste is lemon tartness, pine, and spruce with supporting roles of wet leaves and wet spruce needles. Wow, I need another bottle as it would probably evolve even more. Nice feel and overall, a beer as unique and delicious as, as...well, I don't know; like nothing I've ever had before. Find this beer and savor it!
    Cheers!!!

    C&P from NBS.

    Not bragging but when it comes to bourbon, cost is not an issue. Meeting with daugher and son in law #2 tomorrow for happy hour. Gonna get me some bourbon before then. I am apologizing in advance for my stupid posts tomorrow.

    Excellent brut IPA. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, watermelon, red apple, lychee, guava, raspberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, clove, and pine hops; with moderate cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. High carbonation, light-medium body, and moderately crisp/clean finishing. Balanced bready/grainy malts, sticky hops, and some resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing bitter/carbonated dryness, no hop astringency. Very smooth, pretty refreshing, not overly aggressive, minimal warming 7.3%. Great Ekuanot, Topaz, Citra, Galaxy, El Dorado, Amarillo profile. Very vibrant, dank, earthy, and fairly juicy hop complexity; with a great balanced clean pils malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp drying. No complaints at all for the style.

    Skip the Russels 10 year old. The Single Barrel is a red label and bottled at just under barrel proof at 110 proof. $60 give it take.
