    Pre-dinner prep beer. To be followed by a dinner prep beer. To be followed by multiple dinner cooking beers. And then some post dinner beers. I guess some eating will be in there somewhere too. In case anyone wanted my itinerary. BTW this brew is fabulous! Cheers!

    @Mister_Faucher, after further review, this is the best lager that I have had since I swore the oath to craft beer! Here is a brief clip of my 3pm central time, every Saturday until this is over, every person in Wisconsin, jump around!

    Having another Sip. I say f*ck every time I have this beer, and in a good way. @Shanex, I'll give you some brief commentary on Marshall below.

    Eminem is a gifted emcee, no question. From his lyrical ability, to his delivery, to his breath control (underrated), to his use of the double entendre, multi-syllabic rhyming, the list goes on and on. That said:

    He hasn't made a good album in more than a decade. I consider a lot of things when I look at emcees, and there's no doubt the pen game is at the top of the list. But it goes further...

    Casual fans on this site (I get it, it's a beer site) don't understand my Mac Miller love. Well, sir, he's the better artist. He wrote all his own lyrics, and the pen is highly slept on. He never tried to be anyone but himself. He produced a lot of his records, as well as for others, under the pseudonym Larry Fisherman. He sang. He played the piano, and drums. HE EVOLVED WITH EACH PROJECT. His 2010-2019 run is easily better than Eminem's, and it's not even close. So, when people ask me about Marshall Mathers, I'm quick to give him his props, but guess what?

    He's not the greatest white rapper of all-time.

    I had to share that video with my wife man! You have mutant powers similar to that of Storm from the Xmen where you can create heavy winds simply by jumping around with a nice brew in hand.

    Hey, whenever I get frustrated installing a new garbage disposal I reach for a can 13% Barrel Aged Imperial Stout to entertain myself.

    Last album I bought from him was in 2002, and even then, despite « Superman » and « Without me », I was let down a bit. Since then my taste evolved, just like the taste of other of his fans probably.

    I still listen to him, like you said before after having chugged a few beers. He’s okay-ish or at least used to.

    I’m pretty open minded music wise as you probably know, and it’s not to please everyone here. Give me some Merle Haggard, John Denver, Jimmy Hendrix, KORN, Sepultura and the occasional more chill « pop » tunes and I’m perfectly happy.

    That’s the beauty of music, trying to keep an open mind (and ear) and enjoy whatever appeals to you.

    Here’s my preferred song of Marshall anyways, probably not random that Dr Dre is in it too. I miss NWA as well...



    Cheers...

    I guess it IS just a beer thread if just us three actually give af. @Hunter I've never discredited your boy. As you said yourself I'm, "Just an OG". It's your hip-hop world player, just using the freeways. To be real, whatever music makes somebody happy I ain't gonna shit on it.

    @AD17 reminded me, when you have a big supply of NEIPAs that you plan to put a dent into, you need to take time to warsh the dishes. @superspak, these are Black Dahlia Murders' finest selections, in order.

    Warmer today, the snow has melted, but sticking with my cellar for a great offering from yesteryear. Today's selection is Half Acre's 2017 Barrel Aged Big Hugs with Coffee.

    My review can be found here. Letting this warm a little before engaging, looks and smells very good. Hope I get some coffee in here, I will post a review in the Cellar Reviews thread.

    Hope you have an awesome Beer Saturday!!!

    [​IMG] Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass bottled on 3/10/20. Pours dark amber orange with a 2 finger sticky off white head that leaves a thin wall of lace with excellent retention. 4.5

    Smell apricot, tangerine, pine, and grapefruit rind. Old school and really nice. 4.25

    Taste follows apricot, tangerine, pine, and grapefruit this is really balanced with a nice hit of bitterness that brings me back. 4.5

    Mouthfeel is big, plenty of life, maybe a tad dry, and at 9.2% alcohol does not exist. 4.5

    Overall this is really nice stuff. 5 years ago this would have revered. Well done.4.5

    Added this to BA yesterday. Literally, a new Stoup can offering, canned 10 days ago. The message applies right now.

    Dank melon and ripe tropical, a bit of citrus and bready malt, nice herbal/pine/grassy back end. Gonna have one when my tongue isn't blown out tomorrow for NBS.

    Tonight's Beer Tasting Lineup is another battle beers!...

    1) Schell's Keller Pils, a fantastic grapefruit & peach-hopped kellerbier. Versus...
    2 Summit Brewing's Keller Pils, out of Minnesota. An excellent and true-to-style full-bodied Zwickel that the Germans would be proud of

    3) Odell's IPA (Colorado), a classic IPA that balances old and new world bitterness with juiciness. It's balanced and doesn't lean one way which makes it good. Versus...
    4) Jai Alai IPA (Florida), a classic IPA that showcases tropical citrus and caramel malts to lean sweet

    5) Bell's Porter (Michigan), A robust porter that is probably the most-balanced porter I've had. Versus...
    6) Founder's Porter (Michigan), the sibling to Bells. It is even darker and denser. Two porters of this magnitude could only come out of Michigan.

    Winners:
    1) Summit Keller Pils
    2) Jai Alai
    3) Founder's Porter
    Overall Favorite: Summit Keller Pils. This beer is really fantastic and captures all of the features of a Zwickel. I'm hoping there is more of this with the warmer weather approaching.

    Agree or disagree? Which do you prefer? Cheers!
