    ^^ you should try to find Bourbon Barrel Aged Shipwreck Porter from Arcadia. Delicious.
    I'll have to ask my guy about it.

    So you are using your old wine glasses for beer glasses? Awesome. Also, the Shipwreck Porter is fantastic, but what a pain in the ass to open.

    Lol! Guilty! It's the closest I have to a shifter [​IMG]

    I have a keen eye. You can get some nice stemmed pilsners aka beer snifters at Crate & Barrel for $3-5 a piece.

    It's really quite nice. The licorice helps to balance out the cocoa and the finish is rather smoothe. I'd love to see this barrel aged. It comes in at a close second to Old Rasputin which has become my favorite goto Russian Imperial.

    Interesting, thanks.

    Last night I had a Oude Geuze from Brouwerij Fonteinen. A blend of 1, 2, and 3 year lambics, aged for a year in oak, then bottle fermented. Pretty interesting. The bottle fermentation really gave it a nice texture, almost champagnelike. I will say this, sour beers seem like an entirely different creature.

    Had a few of these Arcadia Loch Down Scotch Ale's last night with a burger at Hop Haus. Pretty complex beer.

    If i had a nickel for every time you mention that. [​IMG] j/k I drank one of randallr's homebrew ambers the other night. I was all set to pick it apart and hate on it, but it was really good. I was quite surprised. Anyway, just got back from my local "beer man" and he had some KBS on the shelf. [​IMG]

    Decent IPA but lacks the character of something like hopslam or double trouble. Cheaper though
