    First one. Very tasty. Time to cross behind the Cheddar Curtain to pick up some more of this on my next New Glarus stock-up trip.

    I totally agree with your results & opinions, and I am jealous looking at the photos.
    WM & TK are the best of class - hands down (I actually can't decide on a winner between these two)

    I'd like to add that La Fin Du Monde can be spectacular one bottle, good on another and... - meh - the next time. You just never know which it will be.

    Kinda sad, eh? Good stuff for sure. I was lucky to find another case and figured I'd extend the season! Cheers.

    Well, hours after my tripel-tasting test earlier, I'm finally finishing off the La Fin du Monde (the Karmeliet went down with lunch - no pics :( lol)...
    [​IMG]
    Much better initial head with the more appropriate glassware and pour, but it still slimmed down into a thin film within a few minutes of this pic...

    Listening to the forthcoming Hatebreed album, The Divinity of Purpose, currently available streaming from their website (click the album cover to go to there ;)) ...

    Considering I am not a big IPA guy, the Pallet Wrecker was outstanding. I also really dug the First Anniversary ale. They seemed to be really proud of their Serrano Double Stout (only 2 kegs made it to Colorado), but I don't get chilli beers at all.

    Just cracked a Hopslam. Going through this case much faster than I thought I would. :)

    Definitely have a Founders Imperial Stout on deck for later.

    Cheers!

    Trying some local boys tonight. Two Brothers North Wind Imperial Stout. I didn't really care for it at first , but the harshness mellowed as it warmed a bit.

    After a busy day I can finally sit down and enjoy a beer that has recently won some awards. Steam beers aren't my favorite but this one is drinking nicely.

    Why don't these bastards date their cans? This one doesn't taste terribly fresh. May be an unfair disadvantage in the upcoming Heady/Hopslams/Pliny side by side I'm going to do. It's their own fault for not dating them.

    Still very tasty though.
