    One of my home brews, a Russian Imperial Oak Bourbon Vanilla Stout.

    Didn't get a chance to post yesterday, spent part of the afternoon at Tired Hands for a bottle release (HandFarm - a saison aged in white wine barrels) and hanging with other BA'rs.

    Then came home and split a Sweet 16 with Millerbuffoon, was an all around GREAT DAY! :)

    You are sitting by a pool and I am freezing my testicals off in 9degree weather. I guess you could say I am just a tad bit jealous

    Somehow I've never had this before. Enjoying my first one of these along with a heady veggie quesadilla with mushrooms, onions, broccoli, spinach and srirachi.

    Had a tasting last night and forgot to post these. The Lost Abbey was a 2011 and it was great would love to have a fresh one now. Also that is a 2009 120 minute and well.... thats not a ipa anymore its a straight up boozy old ale. FT in case anyone wants a few bottles lol. Drinking the Pliny right now while watching Sopranos finishing up packing a box.

    Sounds like an awesome day! How is the Handfarm? Also, that homebrew sounds delicious.

    Heady. For real, tonight. Opened the can about five minutes ago, and it's almost halfway gone—way too easy to drink.

    Anyway, I hear CNY's about to see Ballast Point tomorrow for the first time that I'm aware of (since at least before I started drinking), so something new may be in my fridge by the end of the week :)

    Its my favorite thread series too, although I find myself drinking more now that I am a part of it on a consistent basis.

    Lagunitas Sucks! Just got this in my area and I will be buying the entire the supply. I don't even care that it's $11.99 for a six pack. It is just that damn good.

    Later on, I'll be having a FIS...or more Sucks.....probably gonna break my 3-4 beer/week rule and have all the Sucks.

    Second night in a row enjoying this. I will be the first to say that Russian Imperial Stouts are not really my cup of tea but this one seems to go down alright. Just trying to switch it up for a few days before I go back on another multiple week IPA binge with all these big hitters coming out!

    This didn't wow me at first, but it reveals a decent depth to it after a while.

    This one caught me off guard. I enjoy DFH, brown ales, and wood aged beers, so I had high hopes. Did not expect to need to collect my socks and underwear from the ceiling fan though.

    SanTan Sex Panther 2012 (Double Chocolate Porter)

    60% of the time, it works every time... Which is appropriate, because while it doesn’t taste or smell like Bigfoot’s dick or a a turd covered in burnt hair, I’d still rate it about a 6/10. Not much chocolate and just kind of your run of the mill porter.

    Sharing this with the wife tonight. Delicious beer, nice carbonation, twang and just the right amount of sweetness.
