    So excited... first time trying this one. Gonna see if it matches up to my current favorite coffee stout, FBS. (Man, I need a better camera).

    Was just diagnosed with Bells Palsy, with total facial paralysis on the right side. A few weeks will cure, but I'm on Heavy duty steroids and anti-viral meds that both caution against alcohol consumption. I'm staring at a sixer of Bells Hopslam in my fridge wondering if maybe it's a cure for Bells Palsy.

    Nope, had the Abrasive in the past compliments of Ralph. We're both leaving a few days early next week prior to our corporate meetings to hit Lagunitas, Russian River, and Moylan's. Ralph's response to Abrasive is, "It's too easy to get and I'm holding out for Pliny!" (Whatta turd! I say that laughing because he does it to get under my skin, probably one of the funniest and most genuine people I've ever met!)

    I have been looking for a 6 pack of this for almost 2 months and was just able to score one. I think it's one of the last of the season which is a bummer....

    A friend of mine had that and you're right, it eventually subsides in a few weeks. If you crack a 'Slam just drink it straight from the bottle and be sure to use a straw! :)

    Started with a couple of Bells Two Hearteds on tap. Tasty as ever. Having my first DFH Olde School Barleywine right now. I like it much more than I thought I would.

    Cheers!

    Pretty much spot on. Even at $30 it dried up around me in a week or so. If you have the extra cash do not hesitate at buying a bottle, it is the best gueuze I have ever had. Disclaimer: Never had any of the Armand seasons or one off lambics. Just shelf stuff.
