    Watched a hoops game with a guest who had shown interest in the Belgian styles; split Rochefort 10 and
    Great Divide Grand Cru bomber bottled 1/13/11 ( seemed sweet after the Quad) but as palate adjusted turned very good.
    About to switch gears with Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout & TCU v MSU.

    I'm trying some Newport Storm Vlad (Russian Imperial Stout.) This is actually a pleasant surprise. Very good stuff here. Great representation of the style.

    I started earlier tonight with a Stoudts Fat Dog, spend some time watching tv with my parents, of whom go to bed really early, I then had a philly Pale ale, and now onto a smuttynose IPA. I love east coast Ipa's. I might have to ship some back to La after the holidays.

    Captain Lawrence Winter Ale. It's okay. Not excited to have another 5, but not bothered either. A little stoned.

    Heard someone say they put on Big Hoppy Monster and it piqued my interest since it's retired. Asked the bartender about it, "i dunno it's an IPA". Turned out to be the 2012 Oaked version. It's quite tasty. I gushed over it and told him what it was, and suggested he try it--he took a sample and said it was too intense.

    Your secret is safe with me. I might crack one open tomorrow night. I've never tried it and I have extremely high hopes.

    Now I'm drinking 2011 Sierra Nevada Celebration. Me brother in law had one of these sitting in his refrigerator since Christmas eve last year (that I brought over) and I decided to take it back. Not exactly fresh of course, but its sweet. Of course I probably should have waited till another night since I just had DFH Raison D'Extra. Which brings me to me next point, I'm getting quite buzzed.

    I have some good stuff warm and Mama Mia Pizza Beer (also just sitting around for months) in the fridge. I think tonight I finish off the beers I've been meaning to get rid off, might as well go with the Pizza.
