    Followed up the Hop Ottin with a Two Hearted Ale. Hop Ottin is a very good IPA and underrated but Two Hearted is so unique and just in a league of its own.

    16 Nights of Firestone Walker tasting is currently at night #8, which is the last night before our 16th thru 10th anniversary ale vertical. We're splitting this:

    [​IMG]

    It's a 2010, which is drinking amazing right now. Very smooth, just the right hints of chocolate and coffee aftertaste. This was definitely the favorite Parabola of our vertical for both Little Lady and I.

    My night was pretty awesome:

    This is quite enjoyable actually. Well balanced, not spice cloying.

    This is lovely! Very complex and balanced

    Damn good stuff, despite however old it is. Some honey and caramel notes were noticed.

    No pictures, but the line up was Zombie Dust, Founder's Harvest Ale, Livery Barrel Aged Maillot Jaune, Sierra Nevada Brux, and Greenbush Distorter Porter. I may crack open another Zombie dust before I go to bed.

    Quick fact. I know a lot of southern Italian (in Italy of course ehe) were celebrating Obama's last victory has it was very inspirational for the Italians of the south for many reasons, including having a minority as a president, and for those not in the know, there is much dissent between Southern and Northern Italians.

    So cheers with a ((((drumroll))))) Celebration Ale! :D

    The real question is, "Does "liking" this post positively or negatively affect our LNBA Santa Box?"

    This is decent. A nice middle-of-the-road Belgian stout. Not too dark, pretty well-balanced between roasty, sweet, with a bit of smokiness.

    While I'm waiting for DC Universe Online to take its sweet time applying the new update, it's time for another beer. Here's another one I haven't had in about a year.
