    Report back on the Mikkellar beer guys. They just started being distributed down here. Haven't had a chance to try their shit out yet.

    There's a couple different kinds available here, I have 3 of them: Rauch (Bacon) Beer Geek Breakfast, Beer Hop Breakfast, Beer Geek Breakfast Weasel. I'm on teh list for the BGB Bourbon

    Want! My haul for last night: [​IMG] Very mediocre [​IMG] I got more blue than black in this years version. Ok for a glass but nothing that I'd stock at the house. [​IMG] Not bad. I preferred the MooHoo. The coffee and oatmeal in this sort of offset each other in a way.

    Not my pics. These were both pretty decent out of a can. Really liked the brown. [​IMG] Always a favorite [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Rich mollasses, some charred woods, a little bourbon, slight vanilla bean (bean note is different than vanilla extract) midway through and some alcohol on the finish. Better stout than Ten Fidy, should kop some more (think I have 3 now though)

    Had Brooklyn Summer today. Not what I was expecting at all. It's a grassy stereotypical english ale. Not bad but not good.

    Trying to get drunk. Not working. Stupid high alcohol tolerance! What I've had so far: [​IMG] Underwhelming. I really got no particular flavors out of this. [​IMG] Probably the best of the bunch tonight but nothing special. A middle of the road pale ale. http://www.benekeith.com/upload/web_...gif?1219240028 This was probably the best stout of the evening. Although, that really isn't saying much. [​IMG] I can't believe this gets such great ratings on BA. I thought this was mediocre at best. Really no specific flavor to speak of, just a really middle of the road beer.

    BBC (Berkshire Brewing Company) from Massachusetts makes some solid beers are are really affordable. Usually $3.99 for a 22oz bottle. I usually pick one up whenever i get a 6pack of something at the whole foods by me because they're all pretty enjoyable. They make a Coffee Porter made with coffee from another local Massachusetts roasted Deans Beans which is nice.

    Definitely recommended to anyone in the northeast

    Just had Gouden Carolus Easter. It's a dark Belgian strong ale. Quite good.

    Have a bottle I'm going to crack open tomorrow night. I've heard good things so I'm looking forward to it.
