Had a couple Negra Modelos earlier, but right now it's tequila. Jose Cuervo Reserva de Familia.

It's no mystery why everybody calls me Arturo instead of Arthur.

I must contest that anything Jose Cuervo puts out cannot be called Tequila... Sorry JMO

Cracked a 1-year 'vintage' DFH Black & Blue.

"Malt beverage fermented with blackberries and blueberries. 10% ABV."

I'm feeling pretty good after a couple magic hat circus boys (i got the case for free for doing a 1040A), an ithaca cascazilla, and now 20oz. of DFH olde ale. My brother finished the last 5 oz.

Anyway, I'll keep this succinct: Beer poured a beautiful ruby hue. I ended up stairing through it at a light and the light filtered through the particulate floating in it, had me mesmerized. Looked better than it was, but it was still solid. Malty, caramelly beverage, no hint of hops. I could faintly pick up the actual fruits used in aroma and at the back of tongue, aftertaste was more of cider though. It was smooth for 10%. I drank it from a cold 43F to about 55F. Evolved nicely over the temp range. Was a bit tangy and bitey cold, but got smooth warm. Complex fuirty, malty flavor...

I purchased this a year ago in Rehoboth, it was bottled 2/12/07. I hadn't had any fresh so I can't attest to how it aged, but it was a pretty smooth drinkable beer after so long... I'd purchase some again when/if they brew it again.

Hadn't heard of this one before, but sounds excellent. I'm heading down to DFH for the first time this year (went 3-4 times last year) in Mid-May. Can't wait, but may need to find some of this before...

This beer is a 12% abv, highly roasty, and malty brown ale aged on the Palo Santo wood. It was a huge hit at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub when first released in November of 2006, so it's coming back... into full production.

At 10,000 gallons each, these are the largest wooden brewing vessels built in America since before Prohibition. It's all very exciting. We have wood. Now you do too.
So, how is it?!

This is my first one and it is great. Got a call wednesday from the local beerstore guy to let me know that he just got a case in stock and that he was saving me a four pack. At 12% abv I can tell it's going to be a long night.

I'm jealous about your upcoming trip to DFH. Enjoy.
