    I had no idea this day existed until now. Sweet! Usually November through February is stout day for me. I have one 2010 KBS in the fridge but I don't think tonight's going to be the night that goes down the gullet. I'll go ahead and go with some Old Rasputin to celebrate. Cheers!

    Edit: Now that I've learned it's World Stout Day I feel obligated to drink that KBS. I'm extremely conflicted right now. SHOULD I GO FOR IT?!?!?!? I'd hate to see it gone, but I'd love to drink it. BUT IT'S MY LAST ONE! OH GOD MY LIFE IS A TORNADO OF BEER CONFLICT.

    Certainly not a Stout. I don't need a day to tell me what I should drink.

    Going to be sharing a Momi Hiwa I just received in a trade and a Judgment Day I picked up today. Judgment day was $6.99 for a 750ml, was that priced right? All the other prices at the store seemed high so I think it must have been a mistake.

    Have BORIS hopping Frog open, and a choice for follow up of Great Divide Oaked Yeti or New Holland Dragon's Milk. It's probably going to be the Oaked Yeti!

    I'm not really a stout/porter guy but I've been trying to work myself into those types of beers. Because of that I had a 2012 Bell's Black Note that I bought because I heard it was kind of a big deal but it's been sitting in the fridge ever since. I decided to crack that bad boy today & I'm damn happy I did...it was fantastic!!

    I have a few I am alternating tonight. Highland Black Mocha Stout, Breakfast Stout, and Black Chocolate Stout. 2 are good, while Black Chocolate Stout is a huge disappointment, as always. Not trying to pick on the beer, but I don't find it to be complex at all. It is too boozy and lacks much of a chocolate presence at all. Breakfast stout is great as usual. Black Mocha packs a flavor punch for a stout below 6%abv. Cheers!

    Had an Evil Twin "Christmas Eve...", pretty tasty. Switched over to porters to put away my last Tallgrass "Zombie Monkie". Maybe one more stout before calling it a night.

    AleSmith Speedway Stout Hammerhead. This was redonkulous.

    They didn't tell me anything about wtf Hammerhead was because they were so packed for their event. As far as I can gather from the taste, it is about 100 tons of espresso beans...

    Finally home after work and cracked open a '12 Parabola poured nicely into a Barrelworks teku glass. I must agree that every day is stout day!

    Started with Rogue's 'Chocolate Stout' , good drinking beer after a hard weeks work ,
    next was a Sierra Nevada Narwhal , finished dinner with a smile ,
    and for dessert Southern Tier '2X Stout' , bit dissapointing (not the dessert)
