    haven't had it yet. I've got a few bottles stashed away though. Narwhal is fucking fantastic on its own. I've been sick for the past week, so I haven't had any beer :(

    I'm working through a cold, or sinus infection, or something at the moment; but unless I'm really sick, I still allow my body small amounts of alcohol.

    Had an Ithaca Embrr last night; it's their rye porter. I really like it, especially this time of year.

    I HATE drinking beer when my nose is clogged. Can't really smell or taste anything.

    Ah; well, if I couldn't taste anything, then I probably wouldn't waste it either. This infection is pretty mild though, so it doesn't affect my senses that much.

    I had a crazy lineup on Sunday. Hopleaf, a rather famous Chicago beer bar, had a Super Stout Sunday, which about 60 people were lineup up out the door for before noon. It would have been a lot more considering the blizzard that day.

    I had the following 6.75 ounce pours for a ridiculously affordable $5 a piece.

    Bourbon County Stout Proprietors
    BCS Coffee
    BCS Cherry Rye
    BCS Vanilla Rye
    Surly Eight
    Firestone Walker XVIII

    All of the BCS variants were excellent in their own way. The vanilla was probably had the most subdued secondary flavor. The coffee edition was superb this year, and the Proprietors (coconut water, cassia bark, cacao nibs) was excellent. No other bourbon beer really gets the richness and huge body of these beers down. So perfectly balanced. Surly Eight seemed like a thin astringent mess in comparison. Also on tap were things like Lost Abbey Angel's Share, Founders KBS, Narwhal, and some other huge stouts.

    Currently drinking ...

    [​IMG]

    Pales in comparison to the St Bernardus Chrstmas Ale but no bad at all ... i guess i'm just not really a fan of tripels.

    edit: I keep seeing Nugget Nectar popping up in the beeradvo threads, do we get that stuff out here in cali?

    Nope. It's alright but I don't think it's particularly amazing. Same goes for Hopslam

    Hopslam and anything from Bell's is rather overrated. Founders is the better Michigan brewery. I had an FW Union Jack right before a Founders Centennial IPA, and I thought the Founders was better.

    Nugget Nectar is an overrated mess of a beer. Don't buy the hype.

    I got some Hopslam on tap at the local dive bar. Expensive but totally worth it.

    Terrapin 'Liquid Bliss' last night- a peanut butter porter last night. I daresay too light-tasting to be a substantial porter, but enjoyable nonetheless.
    Tonight I had Persimmon Hollow 'Funky Freddy Fritz'- a porter. It was really good, had to have another one. Chocolate-coffee yummy-ness.
