    I like this a lot. It's very good to excellent but it seems to be not quite as great as last years 5th Anniversary which is what this is. Still worth it if you can get it.

    Sampling a home-brewed stout, a few bottles of which I flavored with various extracts. Tonight I'm giving the raspberry version a whirl. First time I've ever tried such a thing. Surprisingly, it's not too shabby.

    Founders Bolt Cutter at cellar temp, and it's even better than I remembered! Honey, maple sugar, and dried fruit on the nose. Still some booze on the tongue (it is 15%), honey, brown sugar, light touches of toasted oak, sweet bourbon. I gotta pick up some more of this one while it's still around and stow it away.

    No bacon, no rye
    Dragon's milk
    Night Tripper.
    Overall, night tripper won followed by no bacon no rye. Night tripper was a real nice suprise. Slept on stout for sure. No bacon no rye was real good, but I wouldn't call it an old ale. My first time with dragon's milk and I was sadly underwhelmed, but loved the food at New Holland.

    IMO very tough to sit and just drink. Right up there with creme brulee. It has a great chocolate taste, but I sure as hell couldn't sit and drink one pint after another.

    tonight I've had : a Union Jack IPA, a Sierra Nevada Narwhal ( finally showed up here in upstate NY...damned good affordable imperial stout) and a fresh Double Jack is in the tulip now. Personally I think Double Jack absolutely demolishes union jack in every department, taste, aroma, mouth feel, etc. Every time I buy that beer I am reminded of why I love it so much.

    just made plans to make a trip with a buddy to catch these guys in Boston. one of the best metal bands in existence IMO.

    Nice one, I'm still waiting to buy it online, I've found it for sale, but waiting until they have enough to make an order worthwhile.

    I'm just assuming and extrapolating based on past experiences with big hairy wieners out in the woods...

    Any who.

    Onto this now. Have had a few of them now (down to one bottle left ;_; ) and loving it. Also, maybe the first time a beer photo on here as been lit by candlelight? :stuck_out_tongue:
