    Zombie Dust right now.. I've had it before on-tap but this is the first time bottled.. it's an amazing world class IPA and I'd drink it any day, but it doesn't leave other IPAs in the dust, no pun intended.

    You're close enough that you can stop by Victory, pick up a single bottle and then decide for yourself. (Everyone's taste's are different.) I love Old Horizontal and I love barrel aged beers so for me it was a no brainer. I definitely prefer it at room temperature (as my glass warmed up), the bourbon and oak are pretty agressive which isn't everyone's "cup of tea". I posted the first review if you want to know more about it and I'll be re-visiting my review as the beer ages. (Bought a few extra to lay down.) Since you're local, just think Old Horizontal with strong oak and bourbon flavors. It's pretty boozy right now which is to be expected with a young barrel aged barley.

    Too cold to walk to my usual spots, so I decided to get something at the grocery store. Never can go wrong with some Two Hearted, I tell you what.

    Starting the evening with this. The last one I had of these was a 2010 I lost in the abyss of my fridge. Now trying a fresh 2012 one. Have to say they were very different, but I am leaning towards liking fresh slightly more. Great coffee forward beer.

    Next up Moo-Hoo.

    I do like TSO, but I prefer the band that existed before TSO.

    Why start something if you're not going to finish? This is the last of the Project 12 pack. I like the vanilla and light caramel notes on this one.
