Samuel Adams Imperial Stout. I was prepared to comment on how horrible this beer is based on the last three of these I had. This thing has been stored away in the bottom of my beer fridge for atleast 2 years and forgotten. I really can't say anything bad about what this beer has transformed into with age. Not too bad at all.

If I were feeling any better, I'd be enjoying my Christmas beer. But, I'm staving off...something...so I'll keep teetotal for a few days. However, I am exploring the possibility of buying either a bottle of Cognac, Drambuie, or any spirit that would be useful for illnesses.

I did give two coworkers some beer today, though. I don't know if I'll have the same spirited response that I did before, but I'm sure they'll let me down easily.

The quad felt like getting kicked in the nuts. Rough. Tank 7 is horribly peppery to my taste, but it's a hit in kcmo. They even sell it at ghetto gas stations in the four packs which is an odd thing to find.

If you can find it, try the Harvest Dance. Nice seasonal.

You can buy it online. Search for Haskells Liquor Store. Great selection. Found some Matilda, Jolly Pumpkin, a few uncommon lambics. They also have the Surly stuff.

Sadly that one does not ship to Texas. Many of them don't but I know a few who do. Next time I order ill check the stores I can order from.

It's the same style, though I haven't had the DFH to compare. They don't make it out here. It's a really good style of beer, not many commercial examples but a good one is a fine thing.

PM sent buddy.

Had a Mad Hatter IPA with my spaghetti dinner, and now this for dessert.

My CaliV IPA-with Organic Horizon to bitter,Citra flavor-finish+ a little Horizon, then dry hopped with Amarillo. GW organic base malt + a little home-toasted malt,crystal 40/60 and some raw sugar. Great yeast (CaliV-harvested from a previous amber beer) finishing at 1.009. One of the best Ipa's Ive ever had.Almost 9 mo bottled also. I didnt exactly have to use alot of these hops also.Its just one of those beers your like, Holy crap-this is good! And still good? Impressive. Too bad I happened to not write all my mashing notes down on it. Got most of it,just not all the details,I should have It was a double boil-so guess that was my excuse. Both different beers equally turning out great,the other I entered into a homebrew competion,and I easily should have entered this one as well.

And then a 3.5% NB inspired Ak47palemild with hallertau choc malt/crisp brown malt,carahell,bit of munich and MO base malt. Just,wow.Full bodied/flavored wow. My glass has a half full skeleton of heavy lacing from it.And windsor yeast used also,BTW. Ive had great beers with this yeast,and its fairly clean-maybe sligtly buttery, somewhat more malty but still dry clean and somewhat crisp maybe.I might use it in my next american hopped ipa, the first beer I made with this yeast was suppose to be an esb sort of but was more of an american pale ale.Depends what I can get at my LHBS.

My kegorator has been leaking co2 this o past week or so, so I haven't been able to enjoy any of my homebrew.

But enough of that. Let's have some Mongo from Port Brewing instead!
