    I always thought Hi-C went better with IPA's or chocolate forward stouts. Guess I have some experimenting to do next time I'm on the road for work.

    I thoroughly enjoy the non-barrel aged Plead the 5th, but my god, something magical happens to Plead the 5th after some time in barrels.

    sometimes, you just need a bottle of an 11% imperial stout to yourself. This is one of those times.
