    Just finished DFH Raison de Extra 2007 ( I muddled into a few of these during the summer of 2011 in Indianapolis )
    Like prune juice, but in a good way on a damp winter night.
    Now tapering with Ommegang Abbey Ale. Put me down as liking Dubbels & Quads, but when it comes to Trips not so much.

    Drinking a Cafe Royal. I must say it's a LOT different than last year. Less Bourbon forward for sure but more integrated and much better done. I do prefer last year though none the less amazing.

    Sitting with the dog in front of the fire working on a Zinneke frm Smuttyose. Wile I can certainly appreciate what they were shooting for here it does lack for being bourbon barrel Aged.

    One of my Christmas presents.
    Brekle's Brown Ale from Anchor Brewing. It's nice.

    Trying a Summit Old 152....Kentucky Common. Not what I was expecting, but still drinkable. Had a better version at Against the Grain in Louisville.

    Now, onto this

    [​IMG]
    Not pictured, very large glass of water.

    That bottle of Bulleitt had been annoying me for a while because it was almost empty and taking up shelf space in my spirits cabinet. Some cowboy coffee this week, and this wee dram, and its out with the recycling finally.

    I wanted something a little lighter after the Yeti so I thought the Schlafly pumpkin fit the bill nicely. Now the question is what to do with my last pumpkin? Save for next year to do a mini vert for shits and giggles, or drink it in the next few weeks?

    Enjoying my first North Coast Old Rasputin. Excellent beer. Putting this on my list of favorite stouts. I wish I could say I was enjoying the Mizzou v. UCLA bball game as much right now! Cheers.

    I loved that when I first had it.

    Right now I'm prepping for the incoming snow with some Widmer Bros. Brrr and hoping that my job closes tomorrow.

    2013 has landed. Though it's best with a couple years of age, gotta try it fresh too!

    I'm in the same boat, only it's 10:30 here in VA. Had dinner with the girlfriend's parents and nursed a single Two Hearted. Now I'm home and it's time to catch up!

    I did flights at Thirsty Dog, Ohio Brewing, and Lagerheads today, and I steeled in back home with a Columbus Brewing Co. Winter Warmer, Cellar Rats Pale and IPA, and a Fatheads Bumble Berry.

    Girlfriend is drinking my last Lagerheads Winter Mischief right now.
