    Oskar Blues BA20 Vol.3: Angel's Vera Imperial Stout aged in rum barrels with roasted pistachios, cacao nibs & husks, Ugandan vanilla beans and coconut. Damn that's a mouthful of ingredients! Too bad the rum overpowers most of it. There is however a nice toasted pistachio presence in the finish. I liked Vol.1, but these last two just don't please my palate. I'm about ready to throw in the towel on future releases from this series.

    Jai Alai with some Texas Pete garlic hot sauce that I had to order from Amazon, not carried in my little town. Got home from Homosassa and had no water, well not kicking on. I thought for sure it would be the submerged pump but a pressure switch, control box and $350 later we have running water again.

    About a year past it's prime, the oxidative flavors are starting to over power the signature flavors. I'm disappointed, I though this would be better but for a $17 bottle I'm going to choke it down

    Having another one of these, this is probably the best beer I've had from Wormtown, they did an excellent job with this beer, it's all about balance. This is a seasonal release, available in Nov & Dec.

    Can notes:

    A tribute to the underground music scene that gave Worcester its earthy nickname. The Underground series celebrates the eclectic and revolutionary tastes of our beloved city.

    Punk Underground is a shoutout to all the DYI'ers who helped establish Worcester's punk scene. Creative minds who built a strong sense of community where all felt accepted. Punk Playground is an aggressive yet easy drinking douple IPA that welcomes all to enjoy.

    Hell yeah - I"ll support that!

    Brilliant nose, but a flavor profile that lets me down a bit. Still another solid lager from Schilling. Cheers, all!

    Third beer of the day is Omnipollo Nebuchadnezzar, a really wonderful DIPA. It accompanies a home made pizza. Artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, black olives, roasted red peppers, herbs from our garden, home made pesto and locally sourced goat feta and goat cheddar cheese. Movie time. Cheers.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here's my pic from yesterday when I drank it right off the canning line, sans label. You can see the cases they were stacking (with label) in the background. Glorious f*cking day. Cheers!

    Simmering my gumbo. About 3 hours in. About a hour and a half to go. The house smells like gumbo. I smell like gumbo. Nothing wrong with that.

    Bourbon county special #4 stout:

    [​IMG]

    I’m sort of happy to say this was underwhelming and far from the level of bcbcs or what have you. Mostly because I won’t feel the need to go out and buy more of these at 25 dollars (and up). If given this blind I doubt I would have identified it at as bourbon county at all. Kind of a sweet mess without enough coffee notes and little of what I love about BCBS in general.

    Caramella bourbon county with some baked apples to pair it with. Gotta be honest,not a huge fan. Tastes too artificial and that only increases as it warms to the point of not wanting to finish it
    @tobelerone I just had the one you're drinking in my hand an hour ago and put it back on the shelf. Glad I did[​IMG]

    Philosophy and Velocity (East Coast Edition), collaboration between Ommegang and Alesmith.

    They could have come up with a cutesy portmanteau collaboration name like Ommesmith or Alegang. Missed opportunities...

    This is a solid SP offering(forgive me but I have found several to be over-rated). A bit overly boozy but great mouthfeel with smooth traditional American BW taste
