Came home with a couple Darkness in hand (it hit stores today) and found two boxes on my step. One of them from NukeBrewer! Thanks bud, look forward to getting into all of these soon.

It's also a pain to get to, if you don't live in Madison, which I don't, and it's a bit expensive for beer.

That said, although I am about to crack open a homebrew, I'm probably going to have to pick up something to accommodate the crippling lack of bottles that I'm going to face within the next two weeks.

I'm very disappointed in this bottle. It still tastes good, well good enough to not pour down the drain, but I'm sure nowhere near what the brewers intended. After I poured it from the bottle I took a big whiff and there was little to no hop aroma. Took a drink and little hop flavor and all bitterness. So I examine the bottle and find the bottle date is 8/11. I'm assuming that's a little old to expect the fresh hop character to still be there. Maybe someone who has had this before can chime in. I'm thinking about taking the bottle back to where I bought it and ask why they have such old stock.

Definitely try a fresh one, I'm guessing it wouldn't be good after a year+. I've had fresh bottles and while it's not the hoppiest CDA out there, it's got some good hops character. Sucks that your first bottle was old, if it were me, I'd let the shop where you bought it know they're selling old/faded beer.

I'm having a Belgo (yeah, BB, I'm sold) with some fish 'n' chips. Yum.

I knew it had to be the age of the bottle. I will definitely hunt down a fresher bottle now that I know there's a bottling date on their label.

Seconded. I just had one the other night and I thought it was really good.

It's really good fresh! The Simcoe plays well with the yeast character. I may have one in a minute.
