It is a good beer, just not earth shattering in my eyes. I think I fall prey to putting beer I can't immediately get my hand on on a pedestal. Same thing happened with Pliny. I finally got to try it Denver while I was there for GABF after waiting years to try it. Because of the ridiculously high expectations I had, I thought it was a great DIPA, but not mind blowing like it should have been. That said, I am excited to try more Clown Shoes brews, especially Vampire Slayer.

Also, I'm now drinking Green Flash Hop Head Red.

Modified skeeter pee with a pound of raspberries in the secondary and highly carbonated. Delicious.

SN Tumbler.

See them tumbling down,
Pledging their love to the ground!
Lonely, but free, I'll be found,
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

Deschutes Jubelale 2010. I've had this in the beer fridge for over 2 years at a constant 42F and waiting until "after January 29, 2011", the date suggested on the bottle, to find a good occasion to open it. It's Friday, seems like a good occasion to me. And I'm just tired of passing it by in the fridge when looking for an after-dinner beer. Beer wants to be drank!

This is their normal Jubelale but aged in Oregon Pinot Noir barrels. It has molasses on the nose, maybe some cherries, and a sweet caramel-y bitterness that finishes smoothly. It's like a barleywine with a little less bitterness and more body. Fantastic. I'm glad I waited.

You know, you could just re-post that earlier picture of the Tumbler.

Sometimes there's a man...well, sometimes there's a man....aw, I lost my train of thought here.

@nukebrewer: Me too!!! We only get a couple here, but I've had quite a few via trade. All good beers. I have a bottle of Blaecorn Unidragon that I'm looking forward to trying! I'll have to look out for the Vampire Slayer.
Pliny, I love it, but I agree, there's many better.

It's cooling down and rain season is here in Seattle. Pot roast, potatoes, carrots, Obsidian stout, and the independent movie section of netflix. THIS is why I work.
