    (Thus the name.) I like your way of opening that bottle, far more classy than my situation a few days ago. Had a stubborn cork-n-cage a few days ago and had to resort to a pair of pliers since that was all that was available ( :mad: ) ; but, it worked, that's all that counts.

    thus completes my trio of Firestone Walker Barrel aged beers...this is amazing but I agree with the 92 BA rating as opposed to the high 90's for sucaba and parabola.

    Thanks to PHKrames, a Two Hearted Ale as I watch David Akers miss two chip shots, hoping the Vikings can stomp on the Packers.

    Sunday Funday, had a small tasting with solid brews: FFF Zombie Dust, FFF rye'da tiger, FFF pride and joy, heavy seas below deck barleywine, and dogfish hellhound on my ale. If I knew how to post a pic for my iPhone I would, but you get the idea.

    I can't answer that one but I've had a terrible time with many Weyerbacher bottles and just recently, Victory. (There are others too but they aren't coming to mind right now.) Does Nautilus make an exercise machine to strengthen thumbs? (Because mine are obviously weak!!!)

    Color is a bit light for a dubbel, but already adjusted and think that was the bottle I sent you. Was it 11% or 6.8%ABV??

    I assume you were able to get a bottle of 16th Anniversary Ale. Can't wait to crack mine.

    I just found a case of this for $20 and said what the hell. Was bottled on 3/15/12(why it was on sale). Let me tell you that the hops are still there enough to make this still a RyePA and a great one at that!! Will be cracking some soon!!
