    It's Oak Horizontal (Old Horizontal aged in bourbon barrels for 3 months). It's pretty good. I would buy it again.

    AND you had to show your case of Hopslam in the background just to rub it in? C'mon, man!

    I just got back from the beer store where I picked up a couple of Growlers. I'm going to have another O'Hara's now. Oh, and the Growlers are filled with Big Sky Ivan The Terrible.:p

    Tonight's going to be a wine night.

    That said, I just opened up a bottle of Green Flash West Coast IPA and I can't very well let it go to waste. And that bottle of ruthless Rye in my fridge looks kind of lonely since I took its friend away...

    Sixpoint 3 Beans ...goes down SUPER easy. I'm going for #3 tonight. Try this beer. It's definitely a Porter, it's a bit less viscous than an imperial stout, but it is a roasty slight coffee flavored fairly thin mouthfeel tub of awesome. I've had Hopslam, and for a 10% beer I can't believe how easy this drinks...file this one under DANGEROUS.

    Took a day off from training. So decided to work on finishing my keg. More Wipeout IPA for me.

    Whoa! Seriously my luck right? I shared with you before how I missed these great brews in the states I lived in before! Great score at any rate!

    I made a donation to help Long Islanders and a Long Island Brewery affected by SS Sandy and I got a bottle of craft beer in return...

    Long busy day at work. Finally got home and decided to split this with my wife

    She only wanted a little, but she likes it which is huge considering less then a year ago she wasn't drinking any beers. Now she loves stouts and has found a new fervor for barrel aged selections :D

    Trying Red's Rye PA for the first time...awesome! And even better is that it was marked down to 5.99 a 6pk (10/1/12 bottled date) to make room for the FIS, which I also picked up, of course ;)

    The mix is actually pretty dern tasty. Drinking all of this kind of at the same time, haha... The Expedition is waiting in the wings for when I finish the mix and the Hopslam.

    Hit up a local cafe earlier to do some work and drink some beers.

    [​IMG]

    Started off with some Odell Red. A personal favorite and, as usual, did not disappoint one bit.

    [​IMG]

    Followed that up with some New Belgium Coffee Chocolate Imperial Stout. I had tried this once before and thought it was decent but wasn't a huge fan of it, personally. Pulled a 180 after this experience, thought it was quite good this time around. Would happily drink this one again. And again.

    No pictures for the rest but hit up a bar later and tried some Boulder Beer Oak Aged Obovoid Oatmeal Stout (fairly unimpressive, not bad but a letdown) and some Prost Doppelbock (delicious).

    Good ole Nugget Nectar again. Hoping I can get Hopslam soon as well. Best beer month of the year in my opinion!
