    Prettiest looking beer and best mouthfeel Ive ever had in a beer. Fantastic stuff. Im sitting on a couple 2012s as well as 2010s and 2011s. Gonna be a great vertical when I finally decide to crack it.

    Pretty good beer from Scotland. It isn't amazing, but it is still good. It also appears to have been brewed in 2009.

    I think the only beer that rivals this in appearance is Ten Fidy. But this is 10x better than Ten Fidy.

    Westbrook Second Anniversary Release, Cap'n Skoon's Ballistic Stout. RIS brewed with lager yeast. Doesn't live up to the Forst Anniversary Stout (Mexican Cake) but its tasty!

    Its great. Aroma gives a slight cherry flavor which gets hidden among the chocolate.

    Started the day with a Dogfish Head Robert Johnson's Hellhound On My Ale on tap at one of my local beer stores. Enjoyed it so much I bought a bottle to drink at home and review later. No pic for now...

    Probably the best non-barrel aged stout in my opinion. Fucking love this stuff.

    OK, now all of us here in PA are now looking at our watches every few minutes and asking our local distributors, "Is it here yet?"..........."Is it here yet?"........."And now?".......OK, I'll shut up........................."Is it here yet?"

    Once I got home I popped open something I've been meaning to try for a while. Pretty damn tasty.

    And I just wish I could get it in NY. I've never had Hopslam . . . but I'm very excited for Palate Wrecker's return, which should be very, very soon.

    Looks like some awesome brews will be arriving soon according to this thread: Hopslam, Hoptimum, and Founders IS, all of which I hope to see locally soon. Tonight, enjoying some DFH Burton Baton.

    Cheers!

    Now I'm finishing up one from SanFranJake...thanks buddy! Super complex and tasty. Tastes like a barrel aged Sour.

    Just enjoying some Capt. Lawrence Freshchester Pale Ale, which is a really, really solid brew, in my opinion. I'm slowly becoming more and more interested in APAs—not that I didn't enjoy them previously, but I just have usually opted to spend my money and palate on (D)IPAs, scattered varieties of pale Belgian beers, and the occasional Imperial Stout. But in my book, this is a very good APA that shouldn't be overlooked, and a pretty good value (~$10/ sixer in upstate NY).

    Orval? Try Stillwater's Premium, if you can get it in your area. Should be about $11/ bomber, and it might be the funkiest motherfucker I've ever drank. Stillwater's Table Beer is somewhat more approachable, but probably equally funky.
