    So that's the proper glass? Well, I've got one nearly that shape- but it has Yosemite Sam on it. I'll have to break it out if I ever get me a bottle.

    And last but not least, had to pay homage to at a minimum of one local. Truly one of the best, yet underrated Nut Brown's.

    An Aecht Rauchbier. The Urbock I believe. Smells and tastes like smoked meat.

    No Sucks 'round here yet, but I know a place that just tapped a keg of G'Night for growler sales- I'm sure that'll keep me happy in the meantime. One of my faves from OB.

    I'm revisiting another old fave tonight-
    and it's drinking mighty fine. I must make a mental note not to keep passing this one over, it's great with less than a month on it...

    Just fired down a delightful Affligem Blond.. The first beer pulled from my newly started collection.

    I have the beer collecting bug.. It's dangerous..

    Had a bourbon slush before dinner, but since then I've been enjoying a bottle of Hoppyum while watching the Cotton Bowl (go OU, I guess?) but it's been doing right by me. Review to come in a few minutes, still working out some notes.

    The short of it is: Hoppyum is an under-the-radar solid IPA and a great value, fresh. Not everyone raves about it, but if I lived in NC I'd be proud of it.

    Just had some Over-the-Rhine Ale from Christian Moerlein, whose beers I've quite enjoyed lately.

    Definitely not a typical American pale ale, but still very solid.

    So this has been my longest want. I even went so far as to posting my entire cellar for trade two years ago for a single bottle even though the reviews kind of suck. Finally. Finally, I'm trying it. Its glorious! Well the experience mostly. Its a good beer and a very unique/different BA stout, but it has some faults. A real highlight of my beer drinking career!

    And now some tunage!

    Seriously, every January I'm hitting the gym; watching what I eat; enjoying hefes instead of stouts; avoiding pornography; being kind; thinking positive; and working harder.

    By December, I don't know what a gym is; I destroy whole pizzas alone; I'm pounding bourbon barrel stouts; I have calluses; I hate everyone I see; I'm sure the world is going to end; and I need a vacation from all the bullshit.

    These months are separated by one day.

    Dan this is my favorite Jew Brew so far. The bottle says this is like Duchesse De Borgone but I say it makes Duchesse look pedestrian at best. To me DDB is overly vinegary, this is very balanced between sourness and fruitiness. I'm picking up hints of cherry and raspberry switching to a sourness with a slightly acetic character that leads to a clean finish. About 30 seconds after I swallow the malt base comes back into play with a biscuit note that I find very attractive. Bravo Dan, this is phenomenal.

    Had a couple of tasty brews on-tap at our local watering hole: ST Unearthly and He'Brew Jubelation Sweet 16. Came home and grabbed a Brown Shugga to watch the remainder of the Cotton Bowl.
