    Working from home today and heard a knock at the door. Fedex man dropped a box. I checked it and it was a delivery from my BA friend SammyJaxxxx. Inside was an array of awesome beers. As I loaded them into my fridge, with the full intention of going right back to work, I noticed that the bottles were all chilled (from the frosty weather in RI today). They weren't tremendously cold, but a good temp for a stout....say a stout like Terrapin Moo Hoo which was in the box...."Hmmmm," I thought.

    Alas, I caved.

    My first Moo Hoo and I love it. Thanks again Sammy Jaxxxx! This was a very generous gift and I very much appreciate it, you're a true BA!

    PS: I can't believe I am starting one of these threads, hooray day-drinking!

    The best beer I have ever had, not even close.
    Looks awesome, smells unbelievable, and tastes like 90s Jennifer Aniston.

    I am glad to hear that, as I enjoyed that beer tremendously as well (and I have been seeing a lot of folks wizz on it for not being a face-punching-IPA).

    Cheers!

    It's really not at all like the label says, but I say WHO CARES to them. Takes it for what it is and not what it says it is.

    ...and it is a damn fine beer.

    It tastes like a 43 year old woman that was cast off by Brad Pitt?

    First time for this weissbier. It is an ok beer. Sort of thin and the clove and banana is there, but doesn't burst through like others.

    I couldn't hold out any longer. Drinking a Nugget Nectar thanks to the generousity of a great BA Gengle.
    Cheers to you Gengle!!!!!!
    Sorry No picture. There is too much going on here to start taking pics of beer.

    While I would love to be listening to Ron & Fez while I am enjoying this wonderful brew, I am stuck listening to a client rattle on an on about how the world is unfair.

    I would be happy to help her get over it...

    On this crappy New England weather day, the plan is Celtics vs. Hornets and a L'il Sumpin' Sumpin' goin' on...but I have a GI Christmas Ale in the way of the milk carton...be a shame to have to drink both...to make space, you know.

    I hope you aren't a psychologist drinking during a session (although deep down I giggle at the thought)

    I'm doing a side by side, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout & Sierra Nevada Narwhal. 2 awesome brews,the same style but very different from each other. Hard to pick between the two. It's like picking between Jenniefer Lopez or Jenniefer Aniston for a date.

    The problem with having "one" during the day, is that it is so hard to have just one.
    I had a second Nugget Nectar, a wake n bake and now a King Titus.
    Not a lot of work getting done here today.

    I have a nice mix of the Replacements playing on the computer.

    It's another cold day with nasty weather (misty rain). This is the last of my Evil Twin brews that I picked up on sale. It was originally marked at $9.99, but I only paid $3.99. I need to go by stores when they're clearing stock more often. This is a good way to stock up on some beer that I normally wouldn't buy because of the price. For today, it's Christmas Eve at a New York City Hotel Room. What a solid imperial stout that is perfect for this day.

    Goose Island BCBS Baudoinia. Think of the standard BCBS with Cocoa Nibs added. Pretty good but wouldn't go bunkers over it.

    I am not really into Rye beers. This one, however, is good. Damn good. I'll be picking up more of this.
