    As a bottle collector i really like those 7 deadly sin beers. The Bullfrog...did it taste of black cherry? If so it sounds good. Any idea where I can pick that up?

    My buddy and I had to trade for the Sins Series, which to my knowledge have been long out of production (we had to give up a lot of stuff for it, believe me). They were only brewed once, unfortunately. That is why the value of them are ridiculously high, but rightfully so considering they are Midnight Sun beers. They have an amazing line of brews, and are far better than Stone, Lost Abbey, etc... Some of their standard releases are fairly easy to come by from some of the online stores, but I doubt you'll find any Midnight Sun beers at BevMo or most liquor stores out here.

    The Black Cherry Bomb was somewhere between an Imperial Stout and a Flander's Red if you ask me. It had some cherry notes, but nothing overpowering with respect to that and the sour/tartness. I'd say it leans more towards the Imperial Stout style, but it is reminiscent of the Cuvee De Tomme from Lost Abbey to a certain extent. You won't find this one because it was so limited to begin with. As of now, 80 people on the BA trading forums want it, and there are 0 gots for it. You could try e-bay, but I would imagine it'll cost you $80+ for a bottle.

    The Kirin Ichiban was the Kirin Tanrei, and it was included in the tasting for the rarity of it's style (Happoshu).

    Taken from beeradvocate:

    "Japanese beer companies produce what's called "Happoshu," which is sparkling low malt beverage. Since the tax for Happoshu is much less than the tax for beer, happoshu is cheaper than beer. For that reason, Happoshu has become very popular in Japan. Happoshu classification occurs when an ingredient other than malt, hops, rice, corn, kaoliang, potato, starch, or sugar is used, or if the malt ratio is less than 67%."

    I've gotta say, Japanese beers are quite underrated. They can make a "fizzy yellow beer" pretty damn good.

    I wasn't dissing it by any means. I just thought it stood out like a sore thumb, maybe as a joke. But your explanation makes perfect sense as to why it was there. And I agree on Japanese beers. I'm a fan, especially on a hot day where my normal hop addiction tends to give way to my need for a clean, refreshing, lighter tasting beer that doesn't taste like metal or corn. Kirin and Sapporo always come through. I'm going to have to try and find some of the Kirin Tanrei.

    Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale – Dark brown in color with a sparse head. Very nice hoppy/floral aroma. Hop-forward taste with a bite and bitterness but not too crushing. Slightly balanced by malt but this is a hoppy beer. I’m liking it though as a contrast to the maltier beers I usually go for. Even though this is pretty hoppy, I like this beer.

    Had the Stone 14th Anniversary on Saturday night.

    Waste of money. English IPA's aren't very interesting to begin with, and all they did was really hop the style up with very little malt presence to provide any balance. It tasted like hoppy water, to be honest.

    Crap. Deschutes Black Butte 12 bottles are crap. Some Abyss 2009 might be as well.

    After Abyss complaints, Deschutes disposes of Black Butte XXII bottles | Beernews.org

    maybe if you age them well enough, they'll come out fine.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!
