Sigh...You are sadly mistaken when it comes to beer in a can! Surly makes amazing beers and besides the limiteds like Darkness they all come in cans, so does Ten Fidy and Half Acre's regular line-ups. They use dark brown bottles to prevent light from coming in to preserve the beer, a can is completely light free.

Beware the sweet soy sauce that is '09 DL! I just had this years last weekend and it was blah, '08 was probably my favorite, I guess I am also a DL hater too...

very jealous of the Surly (does the hopleaf still keep them on tap??)

although the Terrapin I thought was highly over rated. I picked up a bunch when I was in GA last month and was very disappointed.

It was all filler and being used for other trades, Moloko is way better than Moo-Hoo Milk Stout, Surly is no longer in Chicago, they sent some Darkness around to some bars here about a month ago, but that's about it. Coffee Bender is AMAZING and is probably the best coffee beer I've ever had, I want MORE!

Had a meeting today by the shop that stock a lot of Bourbon Stout. So I decided to hop on the expressway for a quick 15 minute drive to that shop only for it to turn into an hour and half. only in fucking Detroit does a car's front end completely falls off and tears away from the body of the vehicle.

don't hate the D. Rogue Santa's Private Reserve - finish had a very distinct pine tree flavor. Not my cup of tea. I'll stick with Dead Guy Ale from Rogue Kuhnhenn Fourth Dementia 2009 - Traded this and a bunch of other beers for one bottle of my precious Vanilla Stout to a friend. sidenote - Vanilla Stout is like the One Ring in the beer world. Jesus. Anyhow. What a fantastic beer. This brewery is very local. From what I read, they don't distribute much outside their own brewpub, which is 5 minutes from my house. The smell is that of licorice, Twizzler like, which made me a tad nervous. Who wants to drink liquid licorice? The taste was oh so smooth for it's high ABV (12%). Licorice notes, along with a rum raisin type flavor. Liquor flavor is predominate but very smooth. Extremely enjoyable and I am sad that I don't have another bottle. HOWEVER, I just read that the brewery has a Winter Solstice Party every year and this beer is released then............so you know where I will be December 21. They also have a Bourbon Barrel Fourth Dementia that is also released the same day.

The Dogfish Head/Victory/Stone "Saison du BUFF" is the best collab I've tried. Especially the Dogfish version.

Kopped a 6er of this last week, will wait to try some. Pine seems like an odd note, though Rogue does have a Chipotle beer that I've been too scared to try, so I guess they're no stranger to weird notes.

Not really a beer drinker but had some Blue Moon Winter Abbey Ale and really liked it. Nice creamy head, a bit milky, nice depth of flavors.
