The good news is that I already have the better part of a sixer of Optimator hanging around for that tasting!

I think it's a little off, but I'll send a couple bottles of the Taddy out to you along with the Bock I promised. I'm sure your palatte's a lot more developed than mine, I'm wondering if you'll agree with me that it's a bit... not right. The Taddy's not my favorite, anyway, it's too much toffee-sweet.

The Celebrator, on the other hand... I can't wait to re-sample this. Actually, I think it's an interesting contrast between the two beers, both being quite sweet, but in very different ways.

Thanks, Bird. It looks we have a suitable box at home, so I'll get stuff out to you in the next couple of days (provided I can see!)

Updated for this week...

Paulaner Salvator, the originator of the Doppelbock style, brewed as liquid bread during fasting at Lent. Since this is the last week of Lent, I figured it would be appropriate.

I updated the BOTW for this week which is Samuel Adams Double Bock. I wanted the last commercial example to be an American one and one that could be found pretty widely. Has anyone even seen this beer this year?

I remain committed albeit a week late.
I'll be drinking the Salvator tonite.
