    I did the same with the FBS after having a Speedway Stout. FBS just seemed thin and bodyless to me after that one. Also seemed like really shitty coffee. I have learned to jump around with styles so I am not comparing and just enjoying, plus gives your palate a break from the same things.

    PS-I also didn't care much for the Java Head but not a drain pour when not preceeded with something that much better.

    Word. Living in a FFF's market isn't easy sometimes. The only six packs I ever see here are Robert the Bruce, we get mostly the bombers. Zombie dust is still one that's like a ghost around here.

    Cherry Rye, and after this enjoyment, am not eagerly anticipating my next beer.

    Beer #2 is Sun King Wee Muckle. This blows Robert the Bruce out of the water. I wish they made this year round instead of Wee Mac. Mac just pales in comparison.

    This will be my nightcap. Exhausted from putting in floors all day. This beer is amazing.

    If I lived in Troegs market I would give Java Head another shot. I don't however, so my opinion will probably remain tainted by drinking it directly after FBS.

    Also, I can be liberal in my drainpouring. The beer was drinkable, I just wasn't enjoying it at all.

    I drain poured it because it tasted pretty bad and I hated to do so because I hate wasting beer and hate wasting beer that cost like 18 bucks.

    Silva Stout...the only one I've ever had.... Not sure, probably about 2 years old I'd guess...One of the earlier bottles I got from a generous trader - before the trading circuit blew up like a bottle rocket...

    For tonight, enjoying several of these with family. Through all the trading, whale hunting, truck chasing, release party attending, beer store Facebook update checking (some of which can be fun)....every once in a while it is nice to stop in Walgreens and grab a delicious beer that requires no special effort to obtain.


    Cheers everybody.

    It was an 09 and the sweetness up front was fine but the super astringent paint thinner boziness was just completely not enjoyable. I got an ounce or two down in an hour or so and my wife gave up after a few sips.
