    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
