    Drinkin' a Heavier Handed from Two Brothers. Good once a year wet hop DIPA. I figured this election would have been closer. Not a surprise Obama looks to have this locked up. He better end his speech by saying "Mars, bitches!".

    Random fact: Italy has so many dam parties I have NO idea how the country keeps afloat!

    It could be because oceanic crust is denser than continental crust. I'm not sure that's the answer you were looking for. :grinning:

    Yes! That made me laugh! I rather should have said, how does the country not rebel against each other! I count at least 25 to 30 political parties presently!

    Kinda hard to follow a 2010 Parabola, but once the election started being called, we wanted to open up something else special, so we went this 2011 old Oak Aged Yeti, which is exactly one year old as of today.

    !!!! Thank you for posting that.

    Broo Doo > Harvest > Heavy Handed > Heavier... I don't know, this is solid but I enjoyed previous years more. Stronger malt then regular Heavy.. not sure why.

    I love this site! This place is my refuge right now. No politics talk, just beer.

    As for me, I had a Chocolate Bock out of the SA winter pack and a Tumbler.

    Couldn't agree more with your ratings. Heavier was a let down... still looking for 2 Heavy variants. Good call.

    Past midnight now, old-school late night Beer Advocate.

    Speaking of of old-school, I still miss the city sub-forums. No need for everyone in the Great Lakes to read about where limited releases can be found in Chicago.

    Anyway, now drinking Founders Harvest. The notes of cannibus in the nose will soon be familiar to those in Colorado and Washington.
