    Have a nice Sunday BA. Mid weekend for me this time around. Got a huge beer haul yesterday to stock up the review side of the fridge. Still need to ship out a box as well. Next Tavour should be heading out at the end of the week, but more likely next week. They’ve been late both times so far. Very likely to be going to River’s Edge and Rustic Leaf when Noon rolls around. Lots of new stuff on tap for prowler/crowler fills as usual. It's been a while.

    Morning new review. Epic Big Bad Baptist - Peanut Butter Cup. Fantastic as expected. Lasting rocky head retention/thick foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, dark roasted coffee, peanuts, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, whiskey, toasted oak, biscuit, and dark bread/crust; with lighter notes of coconut, molasses, licorice, raisin, fig, date, smoke, char, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and yeast earthiness. Light pine, herbal, woody, peppery, roast, charred, coffee bitterness; and whiskey/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full body; very creamy, silky, velvety, bready malts; some sticky hops, chalky roast, oak tannins, and light slickness in the mouthfeel. Mildly increasing warmth of 10.9%, minimal lingering barrel booze. Dangerously smooth/soft sipping. Fantastic balance of super rich malts, peanuts, fruity/nutty coffee, cocoa nibs, and whiskey barrel presence/integration. Light residual sweetness with lingering bitter/tannic dryness. Right on par with the rest of this years variants so far. 4.23

    I’m down for one more if you guys are. And honestly, I wouldn’t want anything heavier than this right now. It’s tasting fine:

    Again, epic show tonight at The Masonic Lodge at The Hollywood Forever Cemetery:

    He played my favorite song tonight. Sick:

    Vanilla Bean Plead. Amazing RIS as expected. Lasting rocky head retention/thick foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, toffee, vanilla, cream, roasted nuts, toasted biscuit, and dark bread/crust; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, prune, cherry, fig, date, smoke, charcoal, leather, tobacco, wood, herbal, grass, peppercorn, and yeast earthiness.

Lightly increasing lingering hop/char bitter dryness; no cloying, acrid, astringency. Dangerously smooth/soft sipping, minimal warming alcohol for 11%. Not as much vanilla as expected, but the base beer is still spot on for the style. Super rich dark/black/roast/bready malts and nice vanilla presence; balancing earthy hops, and restrained fruity yeast. Light residual sweetness with lingering dryness. Love the base beer with 1+ years age, but this still hits the spot perfectly.

    A rare Sunday off at home!
    :stuck_out_tongue:
    Many new-to-me beers to try to get to today.
    First up: Good Measure's Coconut/Coffee Milk Stout.
    Cheers!

    https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/43995/449079/

    [​IMG]

    12 oz. can.
    Canned 10/22/19.
    Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch tan head over a black coffee body with some lacing. Nose of coconut foremost, dark roasted malts, and dark roasted coffee. Taste mirrors nose with the coffee and cream flavor coming forward surpassing the coconut just a bit. Very nice, smooth, and well balanced with a good, slightly creamy feel with a roasty, slightly bitter finish. Overall, a fine example of a flavored milk stout from Northfield, VT. Cheers to Scott and crew!

    C&P from NBS.

    I've gotta say, I've been fairly pleased with the majority of the offerings I've had from Two Roads, and they've all been priced pretty nice. We sorta kinda pass them whenever we head up to visit my MIL and I've been meaning to stop there..

    pFriem Pilsner

    Clear, light golden color with white cap and lacing.

    Aroma of rich honeyed malt and clean, floral malt.

    Beautifully clean malt flavors with a touch of honey sweetness that actually comes across as dry. Hops in abundance (35 IBU) but bitterness level is very low. I can only call the hops as having a bright floral character. Flavorful, complex, well balanced and quite refreshing. There is a building hop firmness from mid palate to the finish that offsets but does not overcome the other flavors.

    Easily one of the best balanced and flavorful Pilsners I've had from anywhere.

    Sir, I love you. However, it's almost 2020. What regular user of this particular forum doesn't know about Tilted Barn? I know the operative word in your post was "some," and that's fine. I personally think that some is a microscopic quantity.

    I was saving this for a rainy day and although it’s not raining, today is that day. Almost exactly 2 years old and absolutely perfect right now. Void of Light by Gun Hill.

    Kids, I’m not 20 anymore. I danced my ass off last night and I am sore as fuck. Like, sore in places I didn’t know existed. A great night though, all the bands were fantastic. @GreenBayBA you’re in for a treat. Lol, at one point a fat joint was handed to me. I don’t smoke anymore but I was genuinely touched by the sentiment. I quote, guy said to me you’re kicking some serious ass out there, hit this shit! Haha, cheers to you buddy, wherever you are.

    Nice story @guinness77, the same kinda shit happened to me only a few months ago in a club (I sometimes still hit the club to please my late 20s girlfriend :rolling_eyes:) and some dude came my way in the smoking area outside asking if I could give him a smoke so he could roll his joint. Sure, then the dude goes to the bathroom locking himself up and goes back to me telling me to light it up. A few hit later I was higher than a kite but happy until 5am and still ready to party more. Shit is good only on occasion. For the record, no, I wasn’t the designated driver this night.

    We had a busy morning, got up at @Ocalafox time, 0300 to put a brisket on the smoker and after many cups of coffee ran some errands. Now it’s drink, watch football and hopefully eat some decent brisket.
    Cheers to what ever your day brings

    My neighbor asked how long was I going to run the smoker, apparently he doesn’t like the smell. I said until it’s done. No meat for you.
