    Sierra Nevada Celebration....may have one more. Had a few Schlafly Winter ESBs earlier at a friends' house...picked up my first sixer of the year of Schlafly's Irish Style Extra Stout Special Release, which I think is the best beer they brew next to the AIPA. Saving it for one or two tomorrow night! Cheers BAs!

    My beer guy tells me this is the first ever Russian Imperial Stout...anyone able to confirm or debunk this? Mighty tasty either way...it says I can cellar for 13 years! I'm thirsty now though! Cheers BAs ~

    North-Wind Imperial Stout thanks to Doogie71628. I love this! Very creamy yet complex. The body reminds me of a milk stout, but it's still very complex.

    I'm a complete music snob, and I'm not afraid to say that Awesome Wave is one of the greatest albums of all time... OF ALL TIME. Fucking John Lennon status... those guys are geniuses.

    I can't disagree with you at all. I was mesmerized the first time I heard it. A buddy said "check this out", and we sat around for the entire album and missed a few plans that afternoon.

    Concept albums are a lost art... and these guys managed to create a fluid work of art that you somehow don't necessarily have to listen to from start to finish - not an easy task.

    This one song really hurt me. I found ALT-J on the internet but most the album sounds nothing like fitzpleasure. It's probably great, but for some reason that day i wanted the hard sound fitz brings. The rest was just a letdown. Maybe it was because that day i was searching for dubstep or something.

    There is a LOT going on here, and at the same time, it can be quite barren (in a good way). I think if they stay on this course and flesh some of their ideas out a little bit, they will be nothing short of incredible.

    Nice stout season glass. I just filled mine up with Founders Imperial Stout. I just picked up Tame Impala at my local record shop--great album! The song you put on here kinda sounds like Flaming Lips. It's my favorite one on Lonerism.

    Deschutes Red Chair. A lot more maltiness than I expected. Syrup-ey taste. But it still is hoppy. Reminds me of Modus Hoperandi and Central City Red Racer IPA, though not as piney as those. While it wasn't what I expected ( A big hoppy citrusy pale ale like Zombie Dust), it still is great. Definitely a great beer/ pale ale/ and especially winter seasonal pale ale.
