    Three for me. Pathetic.

    However, Next Coast is on tap at Falls Village Wine and Beer for $2/12 ounces. I *may* stop there on the way home from dance class tonight at that price.

    Whoever wants AD can have him. If people are throwing around money, I donít need $60MM. Iíd be thrilled if someone wants to send $10MM my way 🙄🤣

    Did everyone in this thread switch to wine and water in July of 2009? While looking for a review from DD, which I figured would have been in August of 2009, I realized that there is over a full year of this thread missing.

    BridgePort Brewing Company closing. CB&B shared this with me:

    And now, I'm very sad as we visited Portland many times while my parents and brother lived there and I "smuggled" back many, many of their beers to NC after we visited, including their classic IPA, Blue Heron Pale Ale, Ebenezer Ale and, one of the best beer names ever, Old Knucklehead, their barleywine.

    I never noticed this. Thanks for posting. I know I didn't post here for a while due to, umm, some "artistic differences" that I'd be delighted to recount sometime over a fine ale or three. (Privately or at a tailgate this fall .) I "archived" a lot of beer reviews elsewhere but, that might be perceived as crazietalk.

    Trying to figure out when I first posted to Ymm, Beer. The great beer review gap mystery may predate any contributions I have made. Not sure i could even recall how long I lurked before jumping in.

    OK, cut the laughter, folks. I am serious here. My wife gave me a 750 ml corked and caged bottle of this for Christmas on my "suggestion" for a nice Christmas gift. I saw it last year but never made it to TJs for a bottle or three. I'm headed back there in November or December this year and may buy a case. Beer-o-philes will recognize the brewer as one of the better ones in Canada. Their products include Maudite, La Fin du Monde and Trois Pistoles, three outstanding beverages. TJs sells this annually for about $4.99 or $5.99 for the big bottle and it was a steal. Poured a creamy, thick brown with a light tan, fizzy head. Basically, it's a Belgian style dark ale with spices and natural flavorings added. I think the spices are likely nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice, much like many winter ales. There are also dark fruit tastes. I'd guess the IBU about 30 and the ABV was 9% so this was best served at 55-60 degrees in a tulip or chalice.

    From last PM:

    Trader Joe's 2016 Vintage Ale-Unibroue Brewing

    I can hear the snickering again so cut it out .

    This was a $6 or $7 large format bottle that I divided over 2 nights. I don't think it was much different than the 2012 version. Same pour, aromas and tastes with some dark rum on the finish. I tried to find a comparison/sister brew on the Unibroue site but had no luck. I've got 1 bottle left and will age until Christmas this year. Pairings? Figgy pudding or fruitcake.
    From last PM and tonight:

    Trader Joe's 2016 Vintage Ale (BB 08/31/19 stamped on bottle)-Unibroue Brewing

    I think the laughter has finally died out after about 2 years .

    This aged well. All the above descriptions still apply and there might be a hint of licorice in the body of this Belgian-style dubbel ale. I'm sorry I didn't make it to TJ's this season for a bottle or three of this. Outstanding brewery, stellar product at about $3/375 ml serving. Highly recommended.

    devildeac reminded me that I've been neglecting my friends here lately, so I figured I'd stop by and relive Tuesday evening:

    Bourbon County Brand Wheatwine (2018) - 15.4% ABV Wheat Wine - Goose Island Beer Co. - I deliberated for a full 5 minutes in my beer fridge trying to figure out which to go with for the first half of the game... Was going to go with a Deth's Tar but the red and black labeling scared me off (I still am rattled from the State game last year), but ultimately settled for this safe, neutral yellow labeled 15%er to ease into the Cards game. Aged in Heaven Hill barrels with notes of caramel, butterscotch, toffee and vanilla, it was a great way to ease the pain of the first 30 minutes of the game.

    Dragon's Milk Reserve: Toasted Chiles - 11% ABV BA Imperial Stout - New Holland Brewing - Similar to Coach, at some point during the second half I had... not given up necessarily, but my expectations had shifted. I wanted to see some fire and some grit outa the boys, so I went with the only thing I had in my fridge to stoke the flames. Aged with Chili de arbol peppers in their traditional barrels, there was a beautiful spicy afterburn that grew on me along with the notion that one of our Death Lineups might include... Jordan Goldwire?!?!

    Also, in case anyone is interested and it hasn't been mentioned upthread; Dark Lord Day is May 18th this year and tix go on sale March 23rd at noon. https://tenemu.com/news/3-floyds-sch...rch-23/01/2019

    All excellent choices/pairings. Always look forward to/enjoy your reviews.

    I have a regular Bourbon County and the Orange Bourbon County variant our younger son-in-law left over Christmas that I swore would last until his next visit (this weekend) or next Christmas. So far, so good.

    I have two Dragon's Milk variants, the Chocolate Cherry and the Banana Coconut. The first will be included in a 30 beers for 30 years birthday gift to our younger daughter in a couple weeks and the latter will likely be shared with our son during that trip.

    Bell's makes some awesome beers.
