    Hello guys, I've been a long time lurker first post here. I hope everyone has a Very Happy New Year and be safe!

    I just opened a brewed once Duclaw Beer (local to me) This one is called Sweet Baby Jesus - Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter It's surprisingly delicious and this 6 pack wont last long before I'm looking for another at my local bottle shop.

    Tonight's planned lineup:

    Starting with this:

    Then a couple Belgian Quads (Too bad I don't have any Westy 12):

    This has quickly become one of my favorites period:

    Then closing with a great hop bomb:

    Happy NY BA's:

    Had a Brooklyn BCS (12-13), now on a Hop Wallop. Not sure if I want to follow with a Torpedo/Centennial or Old Rasputin/Founder's Breakfast Stout.

    Have one that was bottled last year (I think...), haven't seen anymore of it around, so I'm waiting for something special to open it. Probably a wedding anniversary or something.

    This was my first vintage of it... if how well it's drinking tells me a thing, sitting on it for a while longer than you might normally won't hurt a thing! Cheers!
