Going with Port Brewing Wipe Out IPA.
The grass is greener on the other side I guess, I'd kill for access to so many fine stouts and IPAs I guess that's what BA is all about. You scratch my back, I scratch yours!
Oh, and trust me, something like this is HUGELY uncommon. I had to blink and check the menu again before I believed they had this beer, leave alone at that price.
That's an awesome pic!!! You deserve it Jon. You are a awesomely, generous guy. Cheers!
My daughter's birthday party was a success, so had some beers with friends and family afterwards. So far I've had a Jubelale, Mavericks Alection and a Brown Shugga. Contemplating my next beer. Trying to decide between Vertical Epic 10, Stone Cherry Chocolate Stout or an Insanity.
My understanding of the 'batch 0' concept was because black albert deviated from being "stout-like" and became more like a fruity belgian strong dark ale. The batch 0 idea was to get the beer back in focus as to being more stout-like and less like a belgian strong dark ale. I agree any/all of the batch 0's i have had were roasty and not that fruity like prior batches before the 'batch 0' distinction.
That was the reasoning for my comparison. A case so to speak where another roasty stout wondered off the path and became like a dark fruity belgian strong ale.
Ah yes. They did mention that the other batches have developed some more fruity quadrupel notes over the course of a couple recipe changes. I know that the non-batch 0 are still available here via webshops and the like, but I've never seen them out in the wild. So yeah, I have no point of comparison, looks like I've only ever had the good stuff
I did note that BT 2012 was somehow less boozy than 2011, and especially less sweet.
This is a pic of the vertical we did last week:
Ow, the headache
Definitely smoother out the gate versus last year
Couldn't agree more.
This is truly horrible.
I thought I saw Shamu down making a donation today! That is no Kwak..
Tasted this beer tonight, interesting! (Thanks for the extra Mike)
Also our house-guest looked like this in August:
Now she looks like this:
Ahh this is even better.
Photobucket my dude. You can upload pics on it and it will give you an IMG option that you copy & paste into your post.
Started with this
Now enjoying this...not sure what's up next. Cheers!
This whole beer & cheese pairing thing is gonna get outta hand fast, I can already tell...
Central Waters BB Stout paired with Piccolo Fiore di Bufala - a brie cheese made with Venetian buffalo milk:
Makes me feel like this:
By the way, since you didn't ask.... <grin> I'm saving my one and only bottle of Ithaca Beer Company's "Excelsior!" Fourteen Anniversary, a magnificent hoppy (but not overly much so, thank God) black ale, for my birthday in about two months.
The imperial stout looks lovely.
Oh and just look what else the box he sent me contained....it will blow your mind just as it did mine!!!!!!
Death to all stuffed toys! We must capture the squeaker!
Mad elf in the appropriate glass, with a water as well. Have a nice lineup in store for the rest of the night. After the mad elf Im thinking something like hoptimum, punkin, loose cannon, and flower power. In no particular order. This NFL on Saturday might get the best of me.
Had my first barleywine recently, at Ale Wife in Queens, New York (Long Island City), and liked it. Bought another kind retail to try and did not care for it. I guess not all barleywines are the same. Gee, who'd have thought, right? Seriously, I'm hoping to try other barleywines soon for additional comparison.
My last bottle of Ore De Calabaza my beer stock is in dire need at the moment now.
Watching SNF and drinking this up by the relatives:
Sharing with my wife now...
treating myself to one of my all time favorites
After the FBS last night this one is definitely leaving me wanting...but I guess FBS would have that effect on pretty much all coffee beers. Still decent just wish the coffee was more aggressive...
Ending my evening with this local offering. Blue Point- sour cherry imperial stout. Just released in bottles and man does this stuff flow nicely. The cherry is very subtle and not sour at all.
Holy cow that was one amazing box. Happy holidays to you Frank. You are one generous man indeed. Cheers!
Cavatica Stout while my growler of Boneyard RPM cools down. too lazy for photo.
Speaking as a Great Lakes Christmas Ale whore, I have to say this is as good. Three thumbs up from "this guy".
And it tastes as good as it looks! Got a couple bottles to throw in the cellar as well.
Starting off my weekend with some Day Tripper.
It's my 25th birthday and we're celebrating by opening our first '12 Abyss and Dissident. We combined the last parts of the bottles to form an "Abyssident," and it really is amazing...
Drinking a VE 12/12/12...Spicy and pretty good, a good choice on a cold winter night.
Watching some Saturday night football
Sour Cherry imperial Stout by Blue Point Brewing Co.
first time trying this, taste much better than the picture looks.
Evening BA. I had one of these before dinner with one friends.
Then had a very nice 2007 Petite Syrah with the roast my wife made. Now I'm enjoying one of these.
Crown Royal Maple is pretty damn good, and I don't even like normal Crown that much.
Dark Horse Plead the 5th
Sharing a few beers with WhereTheWildBeersGo, and starting with Hill Farmstead George...
Special holiday ale followed by noyaux and coming soon...ruination anniversary (barleywine)!
