    Hoptimum 2014 batch. I prefer this beer with a few months of age on it. Less sweetness and more of a resinous hop bitterness awesome.

    Oh its divine. It got the name Beer Candy due to its extreme drinkability. The alcohol is very subdued, with the cacao and vanilla and oak really coming at you. I brought a half-growler (howler?) to a tasting and a friend's girlfriend ended up drinking half of it, not realizing the abv. We commented on how drinking it was like eating those little Snickers bars...you cant stop eating them and then you feel like absolute shit after you finish the bag. She coudln't stop consuming it and passed out 15 minutes later. Hence, Beer Candy.

    I like it too but my fav was Goose Island Harvest Ale which is no longer being brewed. Maybe it wasn't a true Oktoberfest but it was my fav Autumn seasonal.

    I often regret moving from Southern California to Texas. Then FBS season comes around, and for a while, everything is all better.
