Boulevard NutCracker Ale. The first year I had this I was really inspired pretty highly by the chinook wet hop they did, but it was lacking the last year or two(at least the bottles I tried-it seemed) This year is why I remembered why I liked it so much although it is much bigger than it use to be possibly sweeter as well. Still a nice malty seasonal winterwarmer. Nice woody vanilla caramel thing to it.Definatly 6 pack worthy for winter. Not to metion my furnace broke-not to be fixed til Monday. Its unseasonably warm,luckily. A new space heater and this beer is doing the trick pretty much though. Think those wet chinooks would have hit harder with the lower 5.8% it was, than the malty sweet 7.8% it is now,still love it.

KeyWestBrewing's original recipe Badfish IIPA. I think he was right when he said mine was pretty much spot on. I do think his has a slightly more vibrant hop character, though.

It is fantastic fresh. Funny enough, tastes almost exactly like my black IIPA, but not as bitter. I'm pretty sure the grain bill is almost identical.

Currently drinking the dregs of a Pepper ESB that I made as a present for my Father in Law.

Read about a method for pepper beers where you split the batch for fermentation and add the peppers to half the batch. Then you can blend to desired hotness. Well, the beer ended up less hot that desired un-blended. So I bottled the peppered portion (very tasty still, just not hot) and then bottled the un-peppered portion.

Oh, did I mention I didnt rinse out my bottling bucket or auto-siphon in-between?

Yeah, so now I have an oddly-sorta peppered ESB to work my way through.

But hey, beer is beer. Its still better than MBC crap.

**** you bastards getting those Fantome saisons. I can't get any in my area.

I am finishing off a 750ml of brett brown I brewed 18 months ago. It's gone from very funky to tasty cherry funk flavor. Really glad I waited to drink more of this one.
