    Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Reserve Rye Stout, 14.5% ABV. Pours thick and black, with a 3+ finger brown head that left no lacing. Nose is chocolate and rye/bourbon, with slight sweet dark fruit. Taste is strong and slightly sweet chocolate, rye/bourbon, vanilla, and oak, with a slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is world class, overall world-class.

    4.73/5 rDev +6.3%
    look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

    This was part of a surprise and very generous porch-bomb from @Justonemore91 and it's incredible, as were all of the other beers he sent.

    Maaaa, come look at this, the crazy old guy across the street is grilling in the snow and drinking beer. Maaaaa! And look at that crazy looking cat...maaaaa!!!!!!

    Yup - burgers for lunch and steaks for supper. It's a balmy 3 degrees out. Getting ready to watch football.

    The second half of Reds v. Man U turned into a snoozefest. I switched over to watch the PBA on Fox Sports! Did I just see Mookie Betts doing multiple ads for the PBA?

    Part of me misses morning drinking, but Moderation Management (“ModMan”) is my new normal...fewer days drinking, less beers per session/day...hope to resurface with a New beer later today, maybe during the Packer’s victory dance :wink:!

    Last night's cap...

    Today, from Total Wine...

    Last thing I need is another glass, but I really wanted that Three Philosophers mix...
    [​IMG]
    The base beer, Three Philosophers, is a Belgian quad with some Belgian kriek blended in - it happens to be a very classy take on the style, and it's worth a try if you've not had it... That said, I like it, and I really liked the Blueberry Coffee iteration I had Thursday...
    [​IMG]
    So I was stoked to get another swipe at it, plus two I've never had: a bourbon barrel-aged and wine barrel-aged version - the beer is well-suited for either, so I'm really looking forward to them...

    But damn if I don't still get excited seeing those boxes of Hopslam each year...
    [​IMG]
    So that's what I'm drinking now lol... Big games today, but I'm not a true fan of any of the remaining teams - though I'd love to see Tennessee win out - probably the biggest underdog of the four, and I like Mike Vrabel (Steeler LB from 1997-2000 :sunglasses:)... No result today is really gonna leave me upset, but just perhaps less enthused...

    Meanwhile, I've moved onto another...

    Music to my ears...

    Cheers... \m/

    I'm kicking back with a New Holland Dragon's milk. Damn, this is good stuff. There's a lot of milk chocolate & vanilla in the palate. Roasty with a boozy component from the bourbon barrels. When I looked up my review to compare, it ended with, "If only every beer could be like this, the world would be a better place." I'll stand by that. Now, once Wifey sees me drinking this, my 22 oz. bottle will become an 11 oz. bottle.

    And here is an absolute treat for me...Cantillon Classic Gueuze. One of my favorites, and I don't often get to use my Cantillon goblet for the correct beer :slight_smile:

    Spinning some of my massive 14 lp Edith Piaf box set, a French import that collects basically everything she put down on record. Excluding some live recordings. A gorgeous afternoon in Houston.

    Lol, Cerveza Tecate, I looked at SN 40th it was 5 weeks old which was fine, but the thought of drinking a hoppy beer kinda flipped my stomach a bit. There wasn’t another Pils that was interesting, so an ice cold Tecate after helping cleaning house and breaking a sweat. I’m just in a weird place where I really don’t want anything even remotely hoppy. I’m in a cycle where AALs extra cold just slide down bit, don’t know why, just the way it is right now. This too shall pass.

    Today is Gose Day and while this is just a tad too sweet and one-dimensional for my personal taste, it's still enjoyable enough. Looking forward to the rest, which should be a bit more interesting.
