Jester King, I've not tried. If that's the brewery I'm thinking of...their bottles kind of creep me out.

Yeah that's the one. They're sort of an American Mikkeller. Check out Noble King and Wytchmaker.

...And their bottles still creep me out. I'm afraid they'll start harassing the trappist beers in the fridge when the door is closed. No thanks.

So, speaking of...last night I had a bomber of Chimay blanc and disliked it intensely. Then a bottle of Trappiste Rochefort and that was much better by comparison but still not nearly as enjoyable as the Westmalle of a few nights back.

Westmalle Tripel is my favorite aswell

Chimay Cinq is horribly overrated. Blue and red are the only ones worth while.

While this year's hopslam is still a tasty beer, I don't think the 2012 or 2013 batches compares to 2011. I had some of the 2011 batch on tap at the rocking horse in logan square a few years ago and thought it was some of the best tasting beer I have ever had. Think I would take a Zombie Dust over hosplam, at least right now.

I have a feeling I may be getting a bottle of it in an incoming trade from the midwest next week

I thought it was good, but definitely not worth $18...

The Publican (normally I'd say fuck that place, but it was for a friend's birthday) had $5 zombie dust on tap last weekend. Hard to go wrong when the cheapest beer on tap is zombie dust.

Going to a raffle for it in Merrillville in a minute, so they must be shipping to IN
