    Jeeper's interupting your normal thread for a litttle pirate radio BA. I wanna play a heavy number from those veteran Colorado rockers, Sierra Nevada, called "My First Narwhal":

    [​IMG]

    All I can say is wow! I can tell it's SN cuz the hops are forward and tasty in this stout. This could very well be my favorite brew from SN since I had my 1st Pale Ale at a 2010 Further show . . . period! I'm glad I've 3 more left. So nice, I gotta play it twice! This what beer I am "listening" to . . . I now return you to your regularly scheduled thread . . . :D

    Haven't had a dopplebock in close to a year, probably. I'd forgotten how good Optimator can be.

    25oz mug ... been mixing beers in it since 7pm. Six different beers in the mug now, nice not to have to think about the beer but damn this mix tastes good. Random leftover beers if anyone cares ... no, I'm not telling what the mix is.
