    Haven't checked the pub lately, but if they still have 'em I'd be happy to pick a couple up for you.

    This...was...incredible. I can understand how others didnt like it because of how sweet it is but damn....i loved it. A near perfect beer in my opinion. You can read my review here :)

    Cheers ladies and gentlemen!

    I am not a Barleywine fan at all. But that was one of two Barleywines that I really enjoyed.

    First beer of the new year is a homebrewed pumpkin ale. Needs to carbonate a little more, but it turned out really nice considering we made a mistake...

    A) GO NIU!
    B) How is the Black Xantus? I was surprised to find that also. Didn't grab one though.

    Haven't had King Henry yet, but Mother of all Storms knocks both Naked Evil and Sucaba clean out of the park for me. I think the main attraction about Naked Evil BBW was that it wasn't too sweet. Insanely drinkable.

    Damn good. I might be imagining it, but I get some of that signature FW coconut in there along with huge amounts of vanilla and toffee/caramel. Coffee doesn't hit you with a shovel like a BCBCS, but it's definitely there. Super smooth for 11% ABV.

    I'm going to "had" it at 4.25, but I'd probably give it a 4.3 or a 4.35.

    Overall, A+ would drink again.

    The last time Stanford won a Rose Bowl I was a 12-year-old kid digging up some end zone turf to take home as a souvenier. This evening I celebrate not with grass, but with beer.

    So far, I've had a horrible holiday beer from A-B Williamsburg Brewery, followed by 2 Wake n Bake, a Southern Tier Mokah, and ending the night with a couple of Narwhals. My tolerance has gone through the roof since discovering the wonders of RIS a year or so ago. My wife actually made me take a "are you an alcoholic" quiz tonight. I passed, so the fun continues.

    Started off with a Snow Day from New Belgium with dinner. After dinner moved on to a Seeyoulator Doppelbock from Boulevard. WOW! It's a shame they don't brew that anymore. Now sipping on a New Belgium Abbey Ale before bed.
