    Little hot right out of the gates...give it 6 months or so and things start mellowing out a lot. Just had one the other night and know exactly what you mean.

    That's the problem. This bottle didn't need more mellowing out. There was no heat at all.

    1/2/13, this is the freshest I have ever had of this beer and it will only get more awesomer (yeah that is a word, I think) over time.

    I enjoy hot beers, so perhaps that's why I was underwhelmed?

    Played tennis for two hours. Our team has several home brewers (myself included) and generally share good beer afterwards. Tonight I was sharing a growler of Wake 'n Bake and two bottles of Lagunitas Sucks. Sucks is as good as I remember it from last year, and I regret only buying two sixers of it.

    I did get her from a Basset Hound rescue. she is sround 35lbs but needs to feed. So I am guessing she be abround 40-45lbs once she gets to proper health. I think she might have some beagle in her. She is kinda small for basset and her legs are a little long too. I know for sure is that she stole my heart and is a pure breed sweetheart.

    Reviewing is so fun. Fuck "Had"ing beer, slackers.

    My sister got me a few from this MO brewery for Xmas. Nice blonde. Nicely hoppy and pretty flavorful. My expectations were met for the style. Well done

    Time to get this out of the fridge. Really weird, I have never had a bloody mary before. Very solid stuff overall. Balanced spices and tomatoes. I would reckon they got pretty close to what they were shooting for.

    Fucking delicious! So balanced and complex with spices and pumpkin/caramel maltiness. This is one of the best Rogue beers Ive ever had.

    Wow. 13% doesn't mess around, this is a damn complex but balanced beer. Lots of dark fruits, molassses, and holiday spiciness notes. A little too easy to drink for 13%.

    Finally found some Sucks near me. For some reason, this year's batch tastes less sweet to me than I recall from last year - in a good way.
