    Thank you! It’s only 2 days in Germany and then off to Namibia for a couple of weeks. I’ll hit Brussels for a day on the way home. Cheers!

    Hope you have a great beer packed two days in Germany, @Beersnake1 and can score Steinemarzen and Rottenburger in addition to your Beck's!

    Also hoping you able to post a few Nambia beers during your stay!

    Keeping things classy with the fourth European beer (assuming your Beck's can was not an American version), one of my first European craft beers and still one of my favorites worldwide.

    Good morning BAs, and thanks @Beersnake1 for turning on the VB’s OPEN lights from Europe! Have a safe trip, we’re all looking forward to your posts from Africa!

    I woke up sore all over from yesterday’s house and yard cleaning…morning chores done…the Dr’s self-prescribed Rx - Utopia’s Barrel-aged World Wide Stout:

    [​IMG]

    Bottled 1/27/21. Poured at 53° Boozy Brandy, cherry cordial nose; hot exhale. Sweet caramel, cherries, Sherry, oaky tannins with bitter roast on backend. I like how the Utopia’s barrel aging dials down the bitter roastiness of the base. And I like the boozy 17.3%…just what the Dr. ordered…

    It’s a gorgeous morning, 66° sunny and still low humidity…I’d love to finish up with my yard chores, but my aching back is encouraging me to take it easy and drink another DogFish Head while I have the stash case open…have a marvelous Monday y’all, and Cheers!

    Dipping into my DFH stash…120 Minutes:

    [​IMG]

    Bottled 12/14/17. Poured at 53°. A joy to behold, a thing of beauty in the mouth; the bitterness has long since faded leaving flavors of caramel, figs, dirt, chewy leather; semi-sweet yet prickly alcohol and old world Sherry flavors; sugared raisins and tobacco on the backend…

    Why I drink beer…my favorite beer in what I believe it’s bloom is five years post bottling…
    Cheers y’all, find your happy!

    I just couldn't do another new beer after the disaster I drank yesterday. This is new to me, and is delicious.

    https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/49734/530925/


    3.96/5 rDev -0.5%
    look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
    Murky pink pour with a pink/white head that's 3 finger. Retention is ok. Some lacing on the glass.
    The nose is chock full of raspberry, and it smells real, not artificial.
    The raspberry hits right away, and is somewhat sweet. The sweetness doesn't last too long because the sour kicks in on the back and lingers. The raspberry flavor is real raspberry.
    The feeling of the sour lingers in my throat.
    Overall a delicious sour.

    Good freakin' afternoon, advocates! Just got off the phone w/ some people in California that wanted to deliver some good news. It's one of the main reasons I'm going out there and I couldn't be more over the moon right now. Once I'm officially in Cali, I'll let everyone in on the secret. This is the Hunter speaking, so you know it's probably beer-related. Haha! I could literally cry tears of joy. Now I will celebrate w/ a beer that has Nelson in it. What else, right? DDH Citra + Nelson from Other Half. Citra & Nelson have always tended to play nice together. I love you. Cheers!!!

    One thing that I didn't realize when I made these travel plans is that today is Tag der Deutschen Einheit (German Unity Day), so everything is closed. Tomorrow is a big bottle share, but today is gas station beer back at the hotel. I'm not complaining, as I don't have much life in me after 28 hours straight of being awake! Prost!

    Punge from the folks in Ardmore. In my opinion, this is one of the best beers from Tired Hands. Top 3, minimum. Yes, I love Nelson, but I'm sure others would agree w/ me. What say you, @JayORear? As always, I'm thankful. Peace...

    This glass... shame on me... I'll give 'er a scrub before the next round!

    Even a sub-par Märzen beats the pants off most beer styles for my tastes.

    This one from 14th Star is one such beer.

    #11 on the menu board. It lacked a malt punch to offset the syrupy nature of the sweetness.

    Some of them do turn into Barleywines!!! :slight_smile:

    I haven't had that one yet. Should probably buy a bottle and let it age for 5 years. I do have a bottle of Founders Devil Dancer from 2015 stashed away.
