I bottled a monster stout back in August. I flavored it with coffee and too much vanilla. Once you got around the vanilla flavor, it wasn't that bad. The alcohol level was high. I screwed up the sample for the OG reading and had to use the head- check method. Forty ounces, and I couldn't feel my legs. I saved one bottle of it and drank it over the Thanksgiving holiday. The flavor had changed. It went from vanilla so strong you'd taste it in the morning to a rich chocolate flavor. There was no chocolate in the recipe ! Where did this come from ? Did one of you guys steal my stout and leave something else ? It smells of the work of El. Pistollero. Thought I heard a diesel- powered SUV in the driveway a while back...

Don't you know that: coffee + vanilla = chocolate?
Where'd you go to school?

Sounds great...

No, it's one of them ciphering things where you don't aks "Y"! You just enjoy!

Other questions to ponder in various states of inebriation... .

1. What's the square root of an orange?
2. Is 2 faster than red? If yes, explain why.
3. Why is it when you break something in half you get 2 halves, but when you break a crumb in half you get 2 crumbs?
4. If pie are square are cakes round?

PS. BTW, "aks" was misspelled on purpose.

New Bern's cool. I used to spend a lot of time at Harker's Island back in the late 80's/early 90's before I spent a couple years in purgatory (Dallas). Had a schoolfriend whose parents lived there and I used to do a lot of fishing with her brother. Talk about pronouncing stuff...

Cool deal on your beer...too bad you didn't save more of it!

I don't get the part about pronouncing stuff. Doesn't everybody say "hoi toid"and talk about 'Mullet blows" ? Surely, you have mullet blows in Fuquay- Varina. The Twin Cities is where it's at. Too close to Raliegh, though.
