    Obviously not my picture, but that's what I'm having. I wasn't gonna drink it, but it has a "Best by 12/24/12" date on it, so... better get drinking it now.

    Whatcha sippin' on?

    I figured it was probably a little early. It's only noon thirty here... I sure love Christmas break. Ah.

    Threw a 3.83/5 rating at Commodore Perry, which is a little lower than the rDev. Wonder what it's like fresh.. it could only be better.

    Not me dude! I love a morning buzz but there's nothing worse than getting a hangover before lunch.

    Salud!

    Last night in Vermont. Heading over to Prohibition Pig soon to drink HF and Lawsons on tap, then a quick stop to Blackback Pub for more goodness, and finally a lovely dinner with the girl at the Crop in Stowe and more beer. Really going to miss this type of lifestyle....

    Cheers all!

    Had to try one of these fresh. Not the greatest in describing the taste characteristics of a stout but I would say it's similar to Narwhal. It has more of a bitter finish that I like less than say Bell's Expedition.

    Being the noob, I remember a less than desirable taste from canned beer back in the day. I am seriously asking has it improved??? I so want to try this!

    Not a drain pour, but I don't think I'm going to be able to finish this whole thing on my own. Odd molasses aroma, and the grape is very cloying and weird.

    Every sip is better than the one before.
    Totally worth it.

    Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale in a plain glass. Still up north, so no room for fancy barware. Excellent beer store though.

    Cracking open BCBS #2. This one seems more balanced and complex (but a bit boozier) at a warmer temperature.

    Not sure why I bothered to pour this one into a glass. It's awfully good straight from the can.
