    The standard porter with hints of chocolate blended with expresso. Exceptionally smooth dark ale, my favorite of all porters Iíve tasted in my travels around the US. The same server from three months ago when we were here told us to buy six packs to save money. The taste of the draft we told him is well worth the price difference. To offset the calories, we walked a three-mile trail from the River up to the Biltmore House, through the garden and back down the hill. Gotta love the Biltmore, an American treasure.

    I can still recall my first Hardywood beer.
    A bourbon barrel aged gingerbread stout.

    It was like Hardywood had captured magic in a bottle.

    Mind blowing in ways similar to experiences with Bellís Hopslam, my first Allagash Confluence, the original BBA Mother Earth Tripel Overhead, as well as beers from The Bruery and Brewery Bhavana.

    I could go on.

    Instead I will focus on what is in the glass at hand.

    Pretty sure its a 2019 BBA GBS.

    The cork eased out of the bottle with little resistance.

    The bourbon nose is strong, overpowering any spice.

    Freagginí Christmas in a bottle is quite subdued compared to my memory.

    Bourbon and ginger dominate.
    The finish is a lovely array of cookie spices.

    Iím not sure if its my palate (ever present allergies) or the bottle.
    Iíve never had a bad Hardywood beer, and while this bottle is no exception, it underwhelms compared to my memory of prior GBS delight.

    Iíll not let the ghosts of Hardywood past spoil my enjoyment of this world class beer.

    Skol! 🍻

    I bet it was from Green Man. Their porter was my husband's favorite when we lived in Asheville. A true classic!

    Quite surprised the first one you had was the BBA version. Not sure how many years they brewed GBS before they started all their wonderful variants.

    Next thing you know, we'll be reading about all the porters you've come to drink/love/appreciate now that you've added IPAs to your favorites list.

    Green Man, yes. My excitement accentuated my lack of editing skills.

    I haven't had a Green Man Porter in several years but remember it fondly as a very good beer.

    I heard rumors and speculations this was even better after sipping the second half of the 750 ml...

    Going to Hardywood tomorrow to pickup the 2020 extra BBA GBS, will sample one on draft and report. So many exceptional variants, but always a favorite. With the sh$&%!t storm 2020 has been, I can take some solice in knowing another holiday season will be enjoyed with friends and family and GBS.

    Heads-up Three-Three-Sixers. From Fiddlin’ Fish:

    Freshie alert! ����
    We reserved a small portion of our 2019 batch of HAss Over Tea Kettle and aged it for 6 months in Jamaican spiced rum barrels. ��That time in the barrel dialed up the spice level to 11!��This festive brew is just what you need to get you through the stress of the holidays!
    ����
    "Amazing what a minute can do."

    All good. I always seem to have more beer to drink than fridge space.
