    Just finished reviewing Stone's 2012 release of Double Bastard Ale. By far one of the most bitter brews that have passed my lips.

    I'd stick with the frozen peas-as a 5 time veteran of the hernia wars there's time for beer later, but getting up to piss every hour is not gonna be fun. Hopefully you'll be required by your doctor to take 2 or three weeks off from work, that's a beer drinker's holiday.

    This was a very long work day and that video brought an absolute smile to my face, thanks for sharing that one! :) I've seen Di Meola front row and center at Lehigh University a few years ago and it was a jaw dropping evening. I have to say though, de Lucia won that showdown, he wasn't even breaking a sweat (and was barely watching his fingers)! Wow! The guy still has the chops!!

    Drove up to Vancouver and found Westvleteren 8 at a bar, quiet a surprise. I thought that all the Westy stuff was going to be overhyped due to its difficulty of purchase. I can gladly say that I was dead wrong, this beer is absolutely magnificent.

    Drinkin on a Stone Cali-Belgique IPA now. Haven't had this one in about a year (thought it was great then). Shame on me for passing this one up so much. So gald I rediscovered this Stone offering (along with the Arrogant Bastard and Sublimely Self-Righteous that I re-tried a month or two ago.)

    Saw Al in 78 during the Casino tour. Ears rang for days afterward.
    It was Mesa Boogie Amp heaven.

    Pours like a jet black oil slick with a thick "glug" as it exits the bottle with a thin and quick fading rusty brown head.
    Smells of chocolate, toffee, vanilla, coconut, raisins, dark fruits and marshmallows.
    Taste is same as the nose but with the addition of coffee. Think smores and tiramisu had a baby and add some coconut!
    Mouthfeel is thick, silky and creamy with the perfect amount of carbonation.

    I hope that works for you Tom.:p

    Ending the night with a "Bourbon Barrel Allies Win The War". (Hey, when you're in the mood for a barrel aged strong ale and don't have any 12 oz'rs available at the time, one must improvise! ;) ) Off to bed after this one, 'gotta work tomorrow so I can buy some barrel aged strong ales!! :p

    I went through the same surgery the day after my birthday in May and it was NOT fun!!!!!! It's amazing how much we take our abdominal muscles for granted, getting on and off the couch or in and out of bed was a real chore (at least for me). I was feeling fine ......until the anesthesia wore off!!!!!!! :( I tip my glass to you for a speedy recovery, wouldn't wish that procedure on anyone.

    2013 was alright but in hoping 2013 goes back to 2011s recipe, Christ was that one delicious. Fsw Stout, porter and Barleywine blend= best 2.99 ever spent
