    Followed by something hoppy like Nelson and Duet or perhaps Cycle Freewheel Pale Ale.

    I will be going to a good sized party at a friends of mine, so I figure I'll bring some home-brew IPA as a gift, some black ops for midnight, and some IPA's for throughout the night. Thinking some Brooklyn East India and Celebration ale.

    I think I'll use it as a night to open a King Henry.
    But that will depend on where I'm at sobriety wise.

    Looking forward to some 2010 Abyss, a couple of Westy 12, and I hear tell that 2011 Black Ops may make an appearance.

    I just tapped a keg of a Pliny clone so I'll be tempted to drink quite a bit of that. If it hasn't ruined my palate I've got some Delirium Tremens, Delirium Nocturum and Hardywood Gingerbread Stout to drink.

    If my self control wins the battle against my inebriated mind then just Racer 5s for the in between drinking, a couple of BCBS, a huge Mikkeler Christmas, and a Hardywood Bourbon GBS to share.

    i'm not sure... I have plenty of goodies from my trip to Colorado...

    Maybe a horizontal of Infinium, Avant Garde, and the new LoF Biere de Garde... I might keep it simple and just kill some bombers of Crispin: The Saint and have some SN Celebration. Either way I have some SA white chistmas that isn't going to drink itself ;)

    Multiples of Rayon Vert, perhaps a Westy 12, and if the party spills outside, a Captain Lawrence Smoked Porter

    Growlers of Humulus Wet and Dusk Til Dawn, capped off with White Chocolate and Chocolate Rain. Highly doubtful we'll see midnight.

    My friends and I were planning on going through the Vertical Epics 03-12, but the planning fell through.

    So instead...

    My first Bourbon County Brand Stout
    Founders Breakfast Stout
    Westmalle Trappist Tripel
    Rochefort 10
    Oscar Blues Ten FIDY
    Various other Founders (live in DE but spending the holiday in Jersey, so I stocked up)

    Will likely have a decent old bottle of Burgundy with the meal followed by Old Stock Ale & Westvleteren 12 before Bottle of 1996 Pol Roger at midnight. After that it's 15 year old Dalwhinnie all the way.
