    Wow, how old is this can? I haven't seen this many chunks in a while from a can of Heady.

    I've never seen Heady look anything like that. That looks three years old.

    My favorite book series is coming to a close with the final book next week! I can not share with you the depth of this series, and if you happen to watch the video or not, the series has a depth few fantasy books have ever ventured. I know that there is Lord of the Rings and Games of Thrones, but I do not think that even those beloved ones come close. Believe me or not but you will have to research that yourselves!

    MM Uncommon Brewer's Bacon Brown Ale! :D MORE NOW!

    Started off with this earlier as I put together my new electric smoker. I prepped it today, and am smoking some ribs and having some people over for the Skins game tomorrow. Hope the ribs turn out good!

    My hiking buddy got it from the brewery for me not more than 2 months ago. I got 8 and every one looks like that.

    Heady can get a bit chunky looking. I've had cans like that at 2 months. Still tastes great (just not the same as 2-3 weeks.)

    How'd you get that head on Twilight? Did you pour from a 2 story building? ;)
    Twilight and Birth are notoriously low carbonation.

    Hey everyone. I just wanted to say thank you to all the great BA's I've found on this site. This will more than likely be my last post for a very long time. I hope to stay in touch with the guys who helped me along the way. Take care all!

    I guess I've never had one more than a week old. Mine look foggy with no chunks. That one is too clear.

    Just saw it at my local beer store today. Was tempted, but with two Eclipses, a Rochefort 10, and a BA Old Raspy already sitting by the cash register, my wife would've stolen my daddy parts. How is it?

    My Abrasive clone I started brewing on 12/18. It is FINALLY ready. Doesn't do the original justice, but it's not a bad brew at all. I'll be making this one again.

    With the Vikings hanging in there with their backup QB, I need to move to something with a little higher octane (or ABV):
