Mendocino Brewing Company's Imperial Stout. The only beer of theirs I don't care for. Much too chocolately sweet for my taste, very malty, like glue between my lips. Tastes more like a dark barley wine. However, I will give it one thing and that is I cannot taste the booze at all. For a 10% beer, that's something.

Had a Figueroa Mountain 1st Anniversary Black Ale earlier when I was out for an early dinner, but forgot to take a pic.

I'm finally back and settled in for the day and pulled a pint of my mild to finish the day.

Where did you have that?
It wasn't Big Cone was it?

Green Flash 2011 Barleywine. Hops are still present, an interesting fruity nose upon warming.
Had a good evening at the local "surf" pub, one of only four bars with good beer within driving distance, plus a homebrew is usually welcome if you share.

It was on tap at a local place in Hermosa Beach. It's a very tasty beer.

Wow, their distribution is greater than they are given credit for. Their beers are great.

Sounds like a great tasting. I can't wait to try out some Heretic brews, and I know Alaskan makes some really nice $hit.
