    Getting my Jersey on.
    Opened up a RiverHorse Chocolate Porter that has been sitting in the beer fridge for awhile.
    It's ok. The aroma. Is chocolatey but the taste is coffee.

    It's been a long time since I experimented and just bought a beer because it looked interesting. It didn't go well...
    [​IMG]

    I guess I don't even know what this is classified as. A beer? A wine? The bottle says it's a "Honey-Peach wine, fermented with hops, with honey added". Not a fan, and don't think I can finish the bottle...
    Anyone ever heard of the "Bardic Wells Meadery" out of Michigan? Guess that's where this is from.
    I may have to dump it and grab something good from the cellar while I watch MSU get stomped! Feel bad for the Big Ten, not so much for the Sparty's. :)

    Kind of liking this hurricane glass that I dug out of the hutch. Went looking for a glass about an hour ago and found 2 of these in the back (dirty as hell) from a cruise a couple of years ago. Cleaned up nicely and a perfect size for 12 oz. bottles...

    Started with an Alpine Keene Idea and a Pliny the Elder on draft.

    Currently drinking a Boulevard Double Wide, which is good but doesn't measure up to the previous two. Not that that's anything to be ashamed of.

    As expected, this is so damn good. Cut the distrib down to 5K and this would warrant mad KH units... ;)

    Same here in NJ. Peeper is usually around, everything else, not so much.
    I was able to grab a bottle of Moe last weekend. Haven't seen Zoe or Lunch for a few weeks.

    troegs scratch 83 - Impending Descent

    I must have had a bad draft and purchased a bad case because this beer tastes like absolute shit and the fact that it is rated a 4.24 blows my fucking mind. really? a beer that tastes like canned vegetables is an exceptional beer by BA standards? you people are on drugs
