    Good morning all. Hot and steamy this morning in Charleston, SC - 78 degrees and 90% humidity in the Holy City at 7:45. Thanks for getting thread started, I still haven't figured out how to do that...

    [​IMG]

    Had this at the brewery 2 months ago and it is very good. Strong whiskey aroma and flavor up front and as liquid warms more toffee and bittersweet dark chocolate. The oakiness comes in at the finish, with a healthy boozy bite (13.5%).

    [​IMG]

    Today we will head downtown and shop on King Street and probably hit up a favorite restaurant or two. Cheers!

    Thanks for the bottle shop recommendation in Southern Pines, NC! Couldn't do the brewery you suggested, but this shop was one of the best I've been in across the southern USA. Draft beer on tap for tasting and/ or growler fills too. I bought 16 bottles, including this morning's submission.

    A new IPA from the City of Subdued Excitement. Went up to hang out with some old homies at Locust Beach and Porter FINALLY got into the water intentionally for the first time since I've had her!! She was so happy. I hope this is the start of her love affair with swimming, because she's made up of mostly water dogs and I think she'll love it (plus it'll tire her out!)
    Picked this up while up in the 'Ham, and glad I finally did. Straight forward, enjoyable, I dig it.

    Thanks! I've read this multiple times since joining ... I will try your much appreciated tips. My struggle is most of the time I'm traveling and trying to participate vis a vis iPhone. I have an iPad (on which I'm typing right now) but infrequently have wifi and can use infrequently. Oh yeah, and I'm a Luddite.

    Good morning/afternoon and happy Thursday, BAs! I couldn't wait any longer to crack this beauty, so I decided to share it with a few friends at their place. Please ignore the frilly wine glasses, they were lacking on proper glassware, but we were happy to sip this out of glasses they got as a wedding gift.

    Beautiful toffee flavors and the whiskey barrel comes through nicely. So smooth for 13.5% too. Cheers fellow beer geeks and geekettes!

    Haha, SharpSherbie! It's a weird one, man...just like my Sherbs. :-)
    I've had this brew a few times now & I'm still not sure if I like it, maybe too much citrus rind for me.
    Let me know what you think if you try it anytime soon. :-)

    Bittersweet chocolate and a whisper of anise on the back end. Great with bouillabaisse!

    Love this stuff. Big citrusy hops & they didn't skimp on the rye, either. :-)

    I'm feeling compelled to post this:

    Sorry. No WBAYDN yet for me today, other than admiring the spectacular posts so far.

    Had some meetings today and took copious notes. (see attached)
    I really think I need to get into therapy OR drink a fine ale. :slight_smile:
    ...I’m thinking the fine ale is the way to go. :grinning:
    For now, need to get this work day over.
