    I have had an emotional reaction to three beers, and 1 was a long time ago. Two however, were recent and repeated, so I put more stock in them. Yes, one is Heady Topper. I've had lots of it over the past few years and it remains my favorite IPA of any type. The other is Everett Porter. My expectations were already so high that when I actually tasted the beer and it shattered them I truly could not believe it.

    Noble Nelson Showers is my highest rated beer on here and probably close to my highest rated beer period.

    The Abyss at 4.84, it was fresh from a keg that was tapped that day. Brought home a growler sat outside in front of the fire listening to good music. At that time I had never been happier drinking a beer by myself. In review of my ratings it appears that I may have a bias for beers from tap over beers from a bottle.

    Lawson's Double Sunshine DIPA at 4.72 is my highest. The appearance knocked this down a bit. I haven't given a 5 yet after almost 1400 reviews. I'm not opposed to doing so though, and in fact, I sure hope it happens.

    1. De Struise - Cuvee Delphine AKA Truth Can Set You Free (4 Roses barrel aged Black Albert) 4.93

    I've bought 7 or 8 of these, and they're so damn good. Fairly available, so go get yourself one, you won't be let down!

    2. Mooi & Meedogenloos
    3. Rueuze
    4. Hel & Verdoemenis
    5. Biggie Smalls

    If i ever get my hand on Black Damnation (the original one), it would probably be my #1 since it's more or less two of my favorite beers mixed (Black Albert, and Hel & Verdoemenis). But who knows, that might be a terrible combination. If anyone wants to help me find out... that would be killer.

    I don't review beers on this site, but I do reviews on paper at home. They're mainly just for reference and a few of my friends who are just getting in to craft beer. I score based on my personal preference, not the style. Appearance is scored 1-10, aroma 1-30, taste 1-40, overall experience (wow factor) 1-20. About a third of my reviews are blind, and my wife will tell me what it was after the review. I've only reviewed about 90 beers so far, but here are my top 5.

    Odell Myrcenary (96)
    Stone Enjoy By 12.26.14 (95)
    Lagunitas Sucks (94)
    Founders Backwoods Bastard (93)
    Founders CBS (93)

    So this will completely reveal my fan boy status of Stone but.... it's a tie between:

    Stone Double Bastard
    Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale
    Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale
    Stone Stone Imperial Russian Stout

    So yeah. There it is.

    I have only rated a few beers so far, i am newer to the site. I rated kern citra at 4.9, and fuzzy baby ducks at 4.88. I think i might be rating a little high, because at this rate i will probably giving out alot of 5s to stuff like focal, dinner, alpine nelson, trillium many damn near perfect IPAs available these days!

    Founders Breakfast Stout. Considering how easy it is to find I'm happy that what I think is closest to perfection is readily available.
