    Will be passing through WS again headed north late AM on Friday 11/22 and on return journey early afternoon on 11/25. I'll keep you apprised .
    I'm not trying to pin you down, but this is just how I roll.

    Out of town the 22nd, but should be around the 25th. FWIW.

    Should be able to split an order. Want to place an order from Ohio or should I strike out on my own?

    As long as it's not gutter-swill, and you have some to spare, I'm good with whatever you pick up.

    I'll convert the rest of this discussion to PM or texting closer to the time.

    The Veil A Patient Man

    10.5% ABV IPA

    You have to be a patient man to read a Veil can label. 🤣

    I need to have this now in hopes it will increase my patience when the TV is on later tonight.

    Looks like orange juice, smells like dank orange juice.

    Super (delightfully) heavy mouthfeel.

    Not nearly as boozy as I would have expected.
    A mild tongue numbing at the end, other than that no discernible high alcohol character.

    You could almost mistake A Patient Man for a weak mimosa.
    Definitely super orange juice flavour.

    This is an outstanding (and dangerous) beer.

    Thanks accfanfrom1970! 🍻

    As of 45 minutes ago, according to the Bottle Rev Lake Boone Trail owner, this is available draft only/one-off. He gets a Haw River delivery weekly so I'll keep you "in the loop."

    Saison Rosť (draft)-Brewery Ommegang (Duvel-Moortgat)

    Credit-my Visa card (pun unintended, really )
    Style-Saison w/Chardonnay ("A delicate blend of saisons, one aged in oak barrels, the other brewed with hibiscus flowers and co-fermented with chardonnay grape juice. Fruity, tart and dry, this lovely pale ruby ale will arrive just in time for summer and will delight both beer and wine drinkers alike.")
    Format-half pint
    Appearance-cloudy and pink with a small head
    Nose-pears, apples and wine
    Mouthfeel-bubbly
    Tastes-same as the nose; vinous
    Overall impression-another impressive innovation from Ommegang
    Ymm, Beer rating-high cat 2; worth a bottle/pint

    Terrapin Ales from the Wood
    Richland Reserve III
    Imperial Brown Ale aged on Richland Rum Barrels 2018

    13.5% ABV

    Lots of details on the bottle label.
    A very generous gift from a coworker.

    Super thick frothy head, almost turbulent to the point where it looked like a chocolate milkshake before settling into a deep opaque brown.
    Definitely not black, and still no light is passing through the glass.

    Hoo wah is the nose boozy.
    Blindfolded, this simply smells like rum, thick and rich.

    Mouthfeel is silky.
    The finish is all boozy rum and dry oak; there is an echo of rum raisin ice cream with some dates, figs and raisin throughout.
    The backbone of brown ale is syrupy sweet.

    I canít find an IBU rating on the bottle; the noted East Kent Goldings and Fuggles hops arenít really notable on the nose or palate.

    Iím not a rum or rum cake guy; I can imagine that you could mistake this beer for a rum cake drizzled in chocolate.

    This is a decadent, indulgent beer. The 500ml bottle is more than enough to share. I find myself at a loss as this beer would have been a great shared experience.

    On a semi related note, my coworker frequents Terrapin regularly and claims to know the brewers on a first name basis. He claims that all Miller has done is infuse cash and has left Terrapin alone.
    Nothing about this beer suggests otherwise.

    Highly recommended; would suggest if you see it you buy a few- one for now and some to age.

    Cheers! 🍻

    An excellent read. Great info about the buy-out. My experience with our younger son-in-law and his tour and tasting at the brewery a couple years ago would agree with what your co-worker claims. The Nutella and Wake-N-Bake variants he tasted and purchased were excellent products.

    Terrapin Wake N Bake beers have been well regarded in our house; been a few years though.

    Pretty sure the pancake/waffle/maple syrup variety I had a few years ago puts Yeah, Toast to shame, albeit at an entirely different price point.

    Dark and Stormy (draft)-Haw River Farmhouse Ales

    Credit-my Visa card is still warm
    Style-this is a variant of their Regent's Rye Tripel which has been rum barrel aged with ginger and lime
    (anyone interested in reading more ? )
    Format-half pint order, full pint pour, half pint price; Bottle Rev owner made a mistake with his pour and charged me half price
    Appearance-clear gold with a small, fizzy head
    Nose-rum and ginger ale cocktail
    Mouthfeel-tingly
    Tastes-I've never had a Dark and Stormy cocktail but can imagine this mimics it pretty closely with the ginger, lime and rum flavors
    IBU-maybe 30
    ABV-8.3%
    Overall impression-another home rum, err, run, for Haw River here
    Ymm, Beer rating-cat 3; worth a bottle/can, or several of each

    For now, this is draft only but, the Bottle Rev Lake Boone Trail owner gets a drop every week and he's not going to be surprised if he sees some pint cans or 500 ml bottle this week or next.

    Meh. An imperial pumpkin stout, but too harsh/bitter on the aftertaste, and that lingers a long time. Not Yccch, but hard pass from here on out.

    Ruh-roh. I've had this 2 or 3 times in the past, dating back to 2013 and recall it fondly. I wonder if they've changed the recipe over the last few years. Certainly doesn't sound like anything I'd want to re-visit.

    Ruination Double IPA 2.0 Sans Filtre-Stone Brewing Company

    Credit-August West with trader #3 from his mixed 12 pack at the Pitt tailgate; quality stuff; thanks!!
    Format-12 ounce bottle
    Freshness data-RVA 08/15/19; EJBY 12/13/19
    Appearance-slightly cloudy light gold with a skinny head
    Nose-lots of rind, pine, grapfruit and dank
    Mouthfeel-close to a hop bomb
    Tastes-grapefruit juice and rind, pine, resin, dank, orange zest
    IBU-Gotta be at least 80 (didn't check)
    ABV-8.5%
    Overall impression-very good IIPA even though I've been tired of the West Coast style IPAs for a while, this is a quality brew
    Ymm, Beer rating-middle/upper tier cat 2; this 12 pack would be worth a shot to try 4 different Stone IPAs and trade for some others

    Yeah, I was a little surprised because I recall having liked this one in the past. Just wasnít feeling it last night. Coulda been that the presidential debate influenced me, though...

    A Patient Man-The Veil Brewing

    Credit-accfanfrom1970; many thanks!!
    Format-pint can
    Style-IIIPA, aka a triple IPA
    Bottom of can-10/01/19; 10:32:46 (accfan musta bought this a day or two after canning; great timing)
    Stemware-large Ommegang tulip
    Appearance-fuse nailed it
    Nose-fuse nailed it again
    Mouthfeel-almost pulpy
    Tastes-more OJ; maybe some pineapple and peach; the mimosa is a good comp; a screwdriver would be another
    IBU-"I don't give a s**t about IBUs" for this beer
    ABV-10.5%; I got a bit more booze with this than fuse, I think
    Overall impression-another fabulous IPA from The Veil's weaponry; reminds me a lot of We Ded Mon that I had on tap at Veil in early July
    Ymm, Beer rating-easy cat 3; I'd get about any IPA/IIPA/IIIPA that these folks brewed when visiting Richmond or have the local beer mule buy in my absence

    Hey, RJ199-you really missed out on this one .

    Hey, RJ199-you really missed out on this one .
    A bit of snooping on The Veil website revealed this:

    "Triple IPA brewed with raw + malted wheat then hopped with a delicious blend of Nelson, Galaxy, Citra, Mosaic, plus a dash of Enigma and BRU-1."

    An amazing combination of hops.
