I'm drinking one of my last bottles of Dogfish Head Brewery "Punk" ale from this past year -- perfect rainy CA afternoon brew.
That 2010 Jubel is great beer -- I picked up several bottles and have laid down all but one for aging.
Home roasted micro-lot Grade-A Kona coffee from a stellar farm on Purple Mountain (Kona's answer to Jamaica's Blue Mountain).
It's a beautiful cup but *very* mood specific -- it's so nuanced and delicate that a measure of attentiveness is required for full appreciation. This is a super-low acid coffee, and has lovely notes of wine, wet earth, unsweetened cocoa, and a hint of stone fruit.

I presume these were purchased from an individual, rather than a vendor?
What's the celebration?
Poker tonight. I expect a solid three-cigar line up. Will post later what I end up smoking but tentative include:
- 1 custom rolled cigar
- A Cohiba Lancero, '01
- A Monte Especial No. 1, '00
So many cigars ... so little time.
I have a couple half/full bottles from the same vintage. This thread has inspired me to open both side by side. I don't have much in this department, but I'll post my thoughts when I've done a comparison.
