    Not bad, it's actually a nice oyster stout. It's definitely one of the better 21A beers, IMO.. Happy New Years.. cheers..

    This is how Founder26 and I are starting this New Years day. Watching Michigan's bowl game and having some Pizza Hut. I can't think of a much better day! More whales to come. Go Blue!

    A Diabolical IPA in an 19th century celery vase that my Dad thought would be a fun craft beer 'mug.' This monster is made of super thick flint glass and holds a brew's temperature for a substantial length of time and is great for sipping; really giving the drinker a chance to plunge the nose in every time.

    Sorry.. Too comfortable on couch to post pictures. Having a Marooned on Hog Island (really enjoy this beer). Next will be a Palate Wrecker which I picked up yesterday and was bottled 2 weeks ago. Given I live in PA, I am excited to get this so fresh

    Watching Michigan lose and drinking on a "Rise" American stout from Revolution Brewing. This is a pretty solid stout, lots of flavor. Only the second brew I've had from Revolution but so far I'm impressed.

    Prefer this over Torpedo, both great though. May have to confirm this evaluation throughout the day.

    I'm going to enjoy a couple of Grand Teton brew. First up, 2012 Coming Home Holiday Ale, $6.99 for the 750 ml bottle:

    It's tasty but if you're looking for a more typical American Barley Wine Style Ale, there's others out there that will please you more.

    Happy to report that Chimay Red holds up well underneath uncorked, less than ideal cellaring (left on countertop overnight) conditions. Happy New Year, BAs!

    Working on a bullet of Bare Hands Honey Badger. Its a Citra DIPA with imported honey. Very cool beer that was xmas present from my wife! Gotta love a woman who "feeds the machine". This is the same woman who just advised me to upgrade to a 3 tap system because an ad on craigslist was a good deal! I am unpacking all my beer after the move home from CA. Pretty cool to get to sample some of the new breweries to pop up since I left about 4 years ago.

    Happy New Year's all!

    This was my New Year's eve treat: had dessert (four miniature trifles) with fireworks going off in the background, AC/DC on TV, good company and Southern Tier Choklat. What more do you want?

    [​IMG]

    Moving on to today. Have the house to myself for a solid week, so I had a nice meal: leftover venison ragout with some pan-fried potatos, sautéed mushrooms, bacon-wrapped green beans and apple sauce. Paired with a Black Albert, my first and original craft beer love.

    [​IMG]

    Now sipping on this, an excellent nightcap. Not my favorite in the series, but still...
