Unless someone gets it for me for Christmas, I'll probably never know. C'est la vie.

What store may I ask?

I went by the store today and came away with nothing. I saw both the Bud brewmaster's special and the Michelob one with the glasses, and jsut couldn't talk myself into spending the money.


Instead I bought a sixer of Brooklyn Brewery's Black Chocolate Stout.

I have one chilling now--so when I get home in the morning I'm going to drink it while I rack the Smoked Porter to secondary.

I loved it too--but I think it would be better with some aging. I put the remaining 4 in the closet for a while.

BTW....yeah, I'm a sucker. I broke down and bought the Michelob Celebrate 2005 (Oak-aged Dark Vanilla) tonight. It came with 2 snifters (that actually look pretty damn cool now that they are out of the box) and of course the 22 ounce bottle of the beer. I have it in the fridge right now. I cannot decide if I want it tonight or if I should save it for New Years eve, and "Celebrate 2005" That is, THE END of 2005 appropriately.

I know, I said I couldn't justify it--but it was the last one at the store and I think it was destiny.

We must have a report on it as soon as it is available. Sounds real interesting to me, I have never had a beer like that.

I decided to save it, so the review will be at a later date.....I saw some pics (and a taste review) of the beer on the green forum and it looked interesting to say the least. From the description, it sounds like my wife is going to like this one much more than me. Like I said--the glasses were worth it. Gold rimmed snifters with "celebrate" etched in them.....nice for the collection.

Can't even re-use the bottle--its a damn screw-top. At least the Bud one was a swingtop, right?
