I drain poured a Lost Abbey Angel's Share - Brandy Barrel Aged 2009. It was like drinking cold concentrated beef bouillon sweetened with brown sugar.

I'm about to drain pour a La Rouspéteuse. It's just a mess.

Must root around for something in the fridge so this night isn't a complete wash...

Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Wild
Beau's Bog Father

Lagunitas is amazing, but those guys know their hops so it's not that surprising. The Beau's is surprising because it has no hops (or a minimal amount at best), but still has a nice floral/herbal bitterness. Very interesting beer - reminds me of something Dogfish Head would try.

Had one on Sunday night, and it's still amazingly yeasty and young.


Is yeasty and young a good thing? Perhaps just impressive given their age! I've enjoyed the flavour of this beer since I bought them, though I only drink one every 3-4 months or so. Look forward to see how they age over the next few years.

Pretty Things Jack D'or. Not the best saison ever, but decent. And lemony.

It wasn't a good thing for me. I'll revisit these in a few years time.

I stand by the belief that Thomas Hardy's needs at least 5 years of aging before consuming.

Charlevoix Vache Folle ESB - don't think this bottle is super fresh, but still an allright drink.

Nickel Brook sour maple porter.... is this a new style? Haha, either way it's gross and is heading down the drain.

That's a pretty good committed relationship! I take it you've had some bottles from 2006 or earlier?? I find cellaring beers a little frustrating, because I'm never sure when they've reached maximum potential (something that would likely vary from person to person). Maybe I'll slow down tastings to once every 6 months....

The THA definitely won't have a quick peak that you have to worry about missing out on. Its far slower to change than something like the St. Ambroise Vintage

Finally got around to buying an Innis & Gunn, which was pretty good.

I am currently drinking a Bootleggers Knuckle Sandwich DIPA. It is excellent!
