    The evening is gaining momentum...


    I felt the need to taste one before 2013 after first having it on draft at Capone's on Black Friday.
    I've read some people saying this is Devil Dancer 2.0 and I have to disagree.

    To the dome :grimacing:

    Beer #3 for the evening:


    And this beer is horrible, so please continue not to buy it, leaving it on the shelves for kind-hearted people like myself to find, who will gladly dispose of it. :wink:

    Drinking a biere de champagne tonight seemed to make sense, so I finally cracked open the bottle of Malheur Dark Brut that I've been sitting on for a few years. Just clocked the "best by" date of 05/10, but it was so delicious I hardly noticed. Happy new year!
