    If my math is correct, you have to drink 5.714 Headys a day (every day) in order to keep that beer from getting more than 3 weeks old on you.
    And that's if you got the beer the day it was canned!

    Better drink up....or trade quick

    Too funny, I do the same thing whenever I'm in my home office and there's a corporate conference call! (It's the only thing that keeps me sane during those worthless things.)

    Decent beer.

    Some appropos music:

    Actually saw these guys live a few years back - lol - opening for Scar Symmetry, among others. Had to get past the lead singer's parrot-on-the-shoulder, but they were really a lot of fun live. Great energy.

    I'd be remiss if I didn't give these guys the nod, though (PotC video version):


    Shiver me timbers!

    If I could suggest my friend Ibai's music from the Basque Country, Ilbeltz! He wrote a 1000 page book in Basque to go along with the cd, which is about a basque Pirate!



    A great friend, Ibai is, and a great musican! :D

    Gonna enjoy some of this before I hit the bowling alley and PBR becomes the most flavorful option available.

    The coffee is waaay more pronounced in the 2011 batch, which almost doesn't make sense...perhaps they changed the recipe?

    OMFG are you s***ing me? Scha-wing!

    reminds me of the bosco or hershey syrup at the bottom of a glass of chocalate milk - that will get you buzzed.

    Some Left Hand Barrel Aged Wake Up Dead Imperial Stout as I listen and watch the new High on Fire video. Went in with somewhat low expectations for this but definitely like this one. For $8.50 a bomber, I'd happily buy this again.

    I will! BTW, it should be available at Capone's if you get up that way in Philly. (Matt always seems to get this stuff first before anyone.) I was talking to the guy at Troegs yesterday and he was expecting another week or two before it hits the shelves through distribution.
