    2011 Terrapin Moo-Hoo Milk Stout... It's way better old than fresh, I think!

    O' Dempseys Black Heart RIS. Chocolate coffee, black tar and raisins.. Mmmmmm..

    Onto my last Tumbler of the year. It's drinking fantastic right now, but with the release of Celebration Ale upon us, it'll have to await me until next autumn. I love this stuff...

    And, as the night progresses and I get angrier and angrier at physics, my music gets angrier and angrier...

    Trying this guy out for the first time

    pretty solid, but not mind blowing or anything, I wish the mouthfeel wasn't so thin. Gonna head down to my local watering hole in a bit to watch the results.

    Popping the cap on yet another never-had-before Top 100 Beer of Fame:

    Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel
    [​IMG]
    Started foaming the moment the cap came off (obviously a very frisky beer that I must've handled a little too roughly :) ), so I was too discombobulated to capture the pour!

    So serene-looking...

    Reviewed, 'natch: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/321/27804/?ba=Greywulfken

    Love tripels and IPAs (Belgian, "regular," and Imperial). This beer was both elegant and rugged. All four ingredients shone: classic malt base, distinctive Belgian yeastiness, a trio of wonderfully complimentary hops (Tomahawk/Columbus, Saaz, and Amarillo), and what must have been some crystal-clear and perfectly pure water.

    Ah, those Belgian brewers...

    To Belgium! *cheers*

    Started with a Sixpoint Bengali Tiger to support Brooklyn, moved on to a DelMarVa Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA to support the all blue area. Drinking out of a Ohio pint glass, from a wedding I went to last year.

    Enjoying this brew while watching election returns. Say what you say about politics and red or blue or whatever. This is still a really cool process that we all get to participate in.

    Voted on my way to work today. I wish I had the same idea davey101 had (to save my ``I Voted'' sticker to put on my bottle this evening). Anyway, I am currently celebrating the exercising of one of our most cherished rights with one of these. Cheers everyone!
