I know at least one person on here knows what hop/hop combo is providing that amazing aroma, anyone know what it is?

Super sekrit proprietary recipe.

OK, not that sekrit, I posted it on twitter. The PA is a delicately balanced blend of Magnum (bittering), Chinook, and Palisade.

I think we'll be bottling some tomorrow and brewing up another batch next week.

GLB Vanilla Bean Espresso Stout...

Not sure what happened to this bottle, but it lost A LOT of fizz, which makes it a little cloying... Maybe I bumped and wiggled the cap loose.

I still have one more bottle, so we'll see.

I found this one to be somewhat cloying fresh.

Did you find yours under carbonated? I had one before and thought there was more vanilla...the one I opened tonight seemed to really pop with coffee, but it was difficult with the subtle bubbles...

I found it to be light but certainly not under-carbonated. I generally like my imperial stouts with lower carbonation levels. Just not Lost Abbey low.

2007 Monster Ale. Pleasantly surprised by this. Body is great, nice carbonation contributes to a still-bitter finish, and almost creamy otherwise. Not as one-note as many barley wines tend to be. Held up really nice.

GLB Harry Porter and the Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Bean...

Harry Porter seems ampted up this year. More hoppy perhaps?

Bellwoods White Picket Fence. First beer of my vacation. Bellwoods, I love everything you do. Almost. This isn't my thing. More on the American side of a wheat. Would kill on the patio but next to none of the spice profile or yeast character that I dig. Even the happiest of couples have arguments. Lets stop the feudin' and the fussin' and get down to some lovin'. Hello Nelson Sauvin.

After seeing the car get plowed in three times after having shovelled it out, I needed a beer. Having an A1213 can of Red Racer, tasting awesome. Relaxing with my newly repaired and upgraded turntable, spinning Unwound's Live Leaves and Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures so far.
