    Schlafly Christmas Ale...listening to The Who Quadrophenia and watching Baylor and UCLA. Pretty good Christmas week I'd say.:)

    Great Lakes Blackout Stout

    Printed on the bottle "for freshest taste, please enjoy by: 08/03/09"
    This is one of the last couple of beers left from the lot of Imperial stouts I bought back in late 2008 when I first turned 21 and discovered imperial stouts. I put a way quite a few Blackouts, Expeditions, and Yeti's that year along with some of the first barley wine's I tried which were Horn Dog and Bigfoot. I have been drinking them slowly since and for the most part have concluded I like imperial stouts better fresh or within a year. That said this is my favorite of the three with some age on it. In fact I love this beer both fresh and with age.

    Baylor vs. the most inconsistent team in football.
    hopefully Mizzou follows Baylor's lead and smacks around the Bruins in hoops tomorrow.

    polished off a bottle of cantillon 100% bio and Stillwater love and regret... both were pretty solid, the latter an unexpectedly herb-forward dark Saison... although I should come to expect these things from stillwater.

    Agreed! I hope the Tigers are on tomorrow night. I was at the Bragging Rights game Saturday night. Tomorrow in LA will be a challenge.

    Had one last night and the extra six months they aged it for this time really made it much better than previous batches! I can't agree with the better than BCBS but it is very very good!

    This is really nice. After the past few barleywines ive had i have come to the conclusion that i dont love English barleywines like i thought i did. Barrel Aged english barleywines? Oh, i love them.

    Ill stick with american barleywines though if there is no barrel treatment.


    Also, this has a bit of a cherry note to it? Im only a few sips in so im not sure how i feel about it but whatevs.

    Cheers ladies and gentlemen!

    Barleywine is my my favorite style and I really enjoyed that beer and had completely written that brewery off until I had that beer. It really blew me away and I was hoping the same for you.:oops:
