    I had another Alpha King with dinner. The indecision fog has passed on my STL haul. I decided I needed a lil' dessert . . .
    Oh yeah . . . so good n' chocolatey; perfect stout for a winters' eve. BTW, my daughter in STL just sent me a text. She and her boyfriend just tried their first Hopslam! In her words " Almost had a fruity taste. Soooo good!
    She's a daddys girl, no doubt about it!:grinning:

    Couldn't tell you exactly how old since there's no bottled on date, but I bought it about a year ago.

    The coffee has faded as expected and its still a bit boozier than I would have thought, but other than that I'm not seeing too much difference. Personally I prefer it fresh though.

    Not sure how fresh this is, but it started tasting great when it warmed up a bit. Nice grapefruit hops with the rye spiciness.

    Zywiec Porter. Very good. Maybe the best baltic porter I've had (overall not a big fan of the style). Just waiting patiently to see the Black Note/Hopslam allocation in FL!

    Never had it in the bottle; today was my first time trying it. Gotta say, it was quite excellent.

    As for tonight, starting with a 2013 Ruthless Rye.

    Easily the best beer Sixpoint has put out, imo. Perfectly blended coffee and chocolate and I love the silky smooth mouthfeel.

    I'm in Pittsburgh, and couldn't be happier. As a side, if anyone in the area would like a bottle (I have a few left) shoot me a PM and maybe we can set something up.
