    Poured this on last night, going finish it up now. I have a lot of respect for this brewery, i have not been disappointed by any of their offerings i have had. This excellent belgian has a nice allspice front end taste and a pineapple kick on the back end. Another awesome Bruery belgian.

    Cheers my friends!

    I believe he has lost posting privileges for the time being so he won't be able to answer my question of whether or not stemless wine glasses are ok to use or if they are still too classy.

    Batch 9000 from Bells's. My last bottle and more than likely, the best. Gawd this ages so wonderfully and look at the head on that sucker!

    This is really nice. Wouldn't mind it if the coffee was a bit calmer on the finish though.

    Watching football today, although I don't care too much about the games. Game 2 should be exciting though. I'm really just excited to have hockey back.

    Great Lakes Burning River P.A. Love the use of malts in this brew. Great Lakes continuously puts out solid offerings across the board. Cheers!

    Big gin fan so I had wanted to try this one. Pretty tasty but nothing special. The aged cheddar is stealing the show.

    Watching another fairly pathetic football game...What an unexciting weekend as far as football goes. Add teams to the playoffs? No thanks, how about downsizing? Anyways, this is tasty. The cardamon really gives it a different profile. By small portions, do they mean drinking this whole 750 to the dome on my own? I'll find out.

    I have some Amstel light flutes that I like to use for sours, in the end they are actually nice glasses. Have you thought about being crafty and turning the onesies into bibs?

    I hear ya but I'd say the opposite. I don't like most things Lagunitas. Don't hate me for saying that.

    Since we are sharing tulip glasses my one and only but very special one is this Baladin glass. Now while it is simple glass, unlike the snazzy Teku one( I think I will buy one shortly) it is special as Baladin glasses are hard to find. As I said in a post about this glass, I just contacted B. United International distributor.

    The quote says "Because beer is the ground" or also the earth!

    And here is my collection of Italian bottles thus far:

    That my friend, is a really trippy picture. Is it a glass, but it has a growler top?! Did he pour that beer into the growler to aerate it? No it's a mug, no it's a growler mug...I finally got it.
