    Anderson Valley Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout

    Very good. Balanced bourbon and beer taste. Just a little light in density, but a good beer all around.

    And hell, a bomber for $8 made it a no-brainer.

    Had a nice score today. Picking up some beer earlier and while checking out the guy I always talk to just asked me if I wanted a couple bottles of Fat Heads Hop Ju Ju he had behind the counter. I said of course and walked out with 2, been dying to get my hands on some.

    Drinking an aged (7 years) Stone Imperial Russian Stout. Thanks again, Curly. It's the first beer from you I've cracked open in a while.

    Yes, and most are very staunch 2A supporters.

    How'd it hold up? It's supposed to be one of those that will hold up/develop.

    I should have warned you about sediment. We had the Batch 1 of Mephistopheles Stout the other night and there was a lot sediment in it. I believe you have a bottle of it from 2006, so when you have it watch out.

    I drank my last bottle of the Stone RIS from 2007 recently and it was Wonderful. I still have a bottle from 2008.

    If you've had Alchemy Hour last year the you've had Chillwave before. They had to rename it. I'm sure you knew that though. I haven't had it this year, but I'm sure I will...LOTS of it.

    Didn't really notice any sediment but I only had half last night. This bottle was from spring of 2007.

    I actually don't mind the sediment most of the time. Grosses my wife out, though, so I try to avoid pointing it out.

    Alchemy/Chillwave are the same. Just changed the name. Comparable? I think so. Like I said though and maybe Curly can vouche for this as well, last years Monster I didn't think was that great. Actually liked Alchemy/Chillwave better.

    I'll take the alchemy over the monster 9/10 times. I had the monster on tap last year was great.

    Other interesting beers I've had recently:

    Hinterland Luna Coffee Stout (Green Bay Brewing): Solid nitro coffee stout - reminded me of a breakfast Guinness. Would have again.
    Stochasticity Project: Grapefruit Slam IPA (Stone Brewing): Not all that great to be honest. There was definitely some tartness from the grapefruit but wanted a bit more oomph.
    Darkness 2013 (Surly Brewing): Awesomely complex Russian imperial from one of my favorite breweries. 2013 version is shaping up to be a gem.
    Ola Dubh 30-Year Special Reserve (Haviestoun Brewery): Strangely flat but easy to drink. Difficult beer to find so I was happy to try it, probably wouldn't go out of my way to find it though.
    Fuck Art - This is Architecure (To l): Really enjoyable Belgian from a Danish brewery I hadn't tried before. Will definitely get them again.

    No my Man, you learned on your own. Palates are Palates and each different, but ours must be close when it comes to some beers.

    It was nice drinking some Sours at Rivertown with you though. You got to make it down here again and we can meet at up at MadTree or Rhinegeist next time.

    Apple Ale and Raspberry Tart from New Glarus this afternoon. Their fruit program is out of control good. Love it.
