    I agree, this is one amazing beer, I would rate this as one of the best stouts I've ever had. Thank you!

    The long awaited personal blind side-by-side: Heady canned on Dec 27th and Abrasive canned on Jan 8th. Both sampled blindly from the can and glass. Heady reigns supreme despite slipping a tad bit, IMO. Heady 2-0 (other blind was Pliny).

    EDIT: Thanks to richardflyr for my first-ever Abrasive! Sounds like a back-handed compliment, but Abrasive is an excellent beer...I just gravitate towards tropical-esque DIPAs vice pine-forward ones.

    I find it to be one of the better bourbon stouts personally. I think it would rate much higher if they didn't rape you for the poultry 16.9 oz. bottle. Worthy of buying if you are not shocked by the absurd price.

    Decided to go big since it feels like summer today.
    This is a great fresh skunky bitter hop monster that is as good as they get.

    Cheers.....

    Decided to go with something barrel aged on this cold Florida night. This one isn't the best out there, but it is certainly getting the job done. I just wish it was a tad bit less sweet.

    Heard good things about this beer, and saw it at my local shop for only $3.99 a bottle! Pretty damn good - dense, roasty, and plenty of flavor. Gonna stock up on a few more.

    I grabbed a few last week. Popped one, really liked it. For me it didn't blow me away like last years 5th did. I think the nose wasnt as pungent and fragrant. I think I will re-visit tomorrow night. Still better than most.

    Cheers....

    Agree 100% with everything you said. This is my second bottle. (Full disclosure: I never had 5th Anni from the bottle, only on-tap and it was A+.) Cheers!
