    Saw this on the shelves finally, then got home and realized it's stout day, so I'm going to compromise and drink one in black & white.

    Laid off for the winter..last day of work...was gonna drink a lot of IPA's..but since it's international Stout day...I decided to drink a few that were in the fridge...Bell's Java stout and Founders Breakfast Stout and My Homebrew Breakfast...which I'd wouldn't be embarrassed to share with anyone...It's awesome :slight_smile:

    That first sip was soooooo tart I thought it was infected Peruvian Morning for a second. It did settle down but it's certainly not a fav.

    Happy stout day! Started off by having a 2012 Backwoods Bastard on draught which is NOT a stout, so I figured I needed to have some Breakfast Stout to celebrate properly

    Recycled picture for what it's worth.

    You wouldn't think it but this beer ages phenomenally. I've had it with 5 years on it and it was divine! When fresh, it's just OK to me.

    this is delicious, delivers exactly what I expect, what I want
    it deserves to be on a once a year rotation

    this is a ball bearing from a train
    you can see me in it, my father inlaw is there too
    it is my most prized possession of all things that exist from my childhood
    I have two, I had three
    gave one to a buddy for his wedding, he knew how much it meant to me
    he appreciates it as I do which is satisfying, he will help it continue to exist
    ~
    [​IMG]
    ~
    it is satisfying to hold, it cannot be ignored
    it is an object aggressively expressing it's potential energy
    it would rather be somewhere else and I am impeding its progress, it's impending
    the cost to me is the cost of loss of energy, mine, it costs to hold it
    regardless of who you are . . . . . you will drop it

    easy to imagine an angel in a flame, seems rather natural - why not
    below I see one reaching, wings spread - do you see it ? - maybe it is arriving
    I believe in the big bang
    which truly is unknowable therefore fucking ridiculous but only slightly less so than
    angels arriving on flame
    little angel dudes and ladies would be welcome, I'd Share an Angel's Share
    androgyny is boring, commit

    this precious will exist vastly longer than me
    I keep it in a drawer with other old now mythic items
    one daughter says these are what she wants when I pass
    her enthusiasm charms me
    most things in a drawer stop aging
    I'm too old to die young now Brother Dede

    scientists are priests, good ones, glad they are around so they are able to convince me
    to believe in what by all measures is impossible from my observations
    it is faith
    this too has potential energy
    this sphere is power, it smells of determination and longevity
    cheers

    Brilliant photos and brilliant prose. Then there's the perfect beer for the composition. It's a sense of something that is unyielding, unending and aflame! Fantastic! Bravo!

    Mine, too. I think Testament doesn't get a lot of props in the thrash scene. Last two albums have been more than solid and have kicked some a**!
