    Looks like a good and very busy night! If I partook in that many beers I certainly wouldn't be up at 9am.

    Thank goodness for that!

    I thought this thread was about whatever beer you are enjoying at this moment, not what beer(s) you drank last night or last weekend.

    On that note...

    I got a 4 pack as a gift and I'm washing down some french toast with one right now!

    I don't have that kind of time. Sorry.

    On that note... I also misspell things too. I'm sure you have never done that.

    "ehhh" -
    ..right now, just so happens to be Sammy's "the Vixen". why ?!

    ..mostly because my In-Laws got a "small batch" Collection of 22's for me 4 Xmas.

    - had it b4..wldn't have bought it again (was free, so..) it's Super cold & snowy out now, therefore felt i'd give it a go again w/ this, 1st.
    -like i said..its just 'Ok"..i (do) like my "bigger boy" Brews, so...2 me-this falls a little Flat, but...i only give this one about a 2.75-3 rating (i'd rather have sumthin' like a ...Youngs Double Choc., Ommegang " ", O'Fallon Cherry Choc, etc...fill in Blank here _____ , evn a Sammy Choc. Bock) -- u get the drift, but 2 each their own also.

    Dr. Rudi from Brown Paper Bag Project - a small batch Belgian-style dubbel hopped with Super Alpha from a group of Dublin cuckoo brewers.

    Irish craft brewing is coming along by leaps and bounds....

    Maybe I can unite us all with this. Last night I was drinking a 2010 world wide stout with my wife, but she couldn't finish hers. So I'm drinking her portion now. Can't we all just get along, and get our drink on?

    Cucumber Saison: cucumber notes have certainly faded with time, but a nice spiciness has come out, like a really good belgium pale as the base. Might be better now than it was fresh, but certianly not as cucumber prominent.

    Recycled picture.

    This one keeps amazing me. Every time I pour one, despite having it several times now, I smell it and think "Ugh, this is going to be too harsh and boozy for me", but then I take a sip and I'm blown away.

    It reminds me of Skull Splitter, which I like, but this is WAY better.
