    First BCBS, thanks to Gehrig13 in the LNBA Secret Santa BIF.

    I've gotta say, lives up to the hype.

    Nicholas when did you get this bottle? The new batch is completely aged in oak for a period. Fantastic stuff!

    I am really starting to grow to love this beer, becoming one of my go tos. First experience with it last year wasn't great, must have been an old one. Glad I have revisited it. This one is about 50 days old, not as good as it is fresher, but still good.

    Hey Colin, got it in a trade and he picked it up last weekend so it should be the new batch? Either way It was awesome! Can't wait to try more.

    I'm spending my Christmas in Iowa and found a bunch of Bells at a local liquor store. I picked a six pack of expedition stout and a six pack of two hearted ale. It's been a long time since of had either of them.

    I'm sipping on a Firestone Walker Sucaba on this fine night. No picture because I have no idea how to upload this picture from my phone.

    yesterday had quite a line up, sorry no pics, but between my brother in law and myself we split 2 cans of heady, 2 FBS, a shorts COJ, a BBPT5'th. then moving on to today, I started with a lawsons finest paradise pale, I think it was infected, didn't taste right at all :(

    then had a deschutes obsidion stout, pretty hoppy/bitter for my taste but still good. then had this bad MOFO, this newest batch is legit!

    Yakima Glory now after a couple of Celebrations. Up next, I think I'll have an Old Stock Ale. Then, I'll probably close out the evening with a Narwhal.

    My wife set up this tasting for me tonight, so the pics are from her camera. She poured them, then brought the glasses to me one by one to try without me knowing which was which, as blind as we could do. I will say, the Westvleteren XII was the best of the bunch, creamy, nutty, caramel, and it was the sweetest. I normally like La Trappe over Chimay when it come to quads, and I rated it second to the Westy, the Chimay came in third. I am really looking forward to seeing how the Westy ages over the next few years. Merry Christmas all y'all!

    I've been hoping to do this side by side, but never have them both in the same place. How was the comparison? We all know Fou is Fou, but how close os the Cascade? 75% as good? 50%?

    An overpriced cup of Sierra Mist from Chicagos MDW airport, while we wait for takeoff to get back home from Vegas. I'd rather be having ANYTHING mentioned in this thread.
