Just picked up a six of this last night, had two, interesting for sure. There are probably 7-8 more sixes there, on sale no less; would the Black age well (as in 6 mo - one year) as I wouldn't mind having it on hand but do not like it enough to drink it on a regular basis.

I had one of these and was slightly disappointed, given the quality of all the other Widmer brews I've tried. It wasn't bad, but it didn't make me say, "Wow, this is good!"

Now if you get your hands on a bottle of Deschutes' new "Hop In The Dark" Cascadian Dark Ale, you'll be in for a treat! I really enjoyed that one!

Yes, Hop in the Dark is GREAT. So is Hopworks Secession. My favorite could be Barley Brown's Turmoil, but it's not bottled. Oakshire O'Dark:30 isn't as good as I had hoped.

I thought I read somewhere that the response was so overwhelming that they were going to make this a year round beer, just drop the "W'10" from the name. Of course, I can't find that source now.

I'm not a hophead, but I can't get enough Sublimely Self Righteous. Man, that stuff is killer.

BYO magazine says that it will be a year-round offering. I'm curious when that's going to start.

Put me down on the list that loved Laughing Dog Dogzilla. Wow, it was utterly amazing!!!!! Next time someone wants to dump one out, dump it in my pint glass!!!!!! This weekend was my first Dogzilla and I promptly went out and bought a couple of bombers after we left the bar!!!!!!!!!!

I guess it might not be for everyone, but I think it is something special. I would love to get my hands on an extract recipe of it.
