    Blind Pig is one of my favorites, but today it was the 10-10-10. Ha dit last week on tap at the beer fest in Claremont, and it is every bit as good out of the bottle. Lucked out that the little liquor store at the end of my block received a case.

    Wasn't thinking of anything specific
    Like in a dream, when someone wakes up and screams
    Nothing too very scientific
    Just thinking of a series of dreams

    btw, if you can find a Kern River Pumpkin Ale, grab some. I had a couple of pints at EJ Malloy's (on Broadway in LB). it was pretty good. kind of like Buffalo Bill's, but with a different spice.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    I've had two of the three XXX Anniversary beers. The Imperial Stout is excellent. Very roasty, lots of coffee, and pretty complex overall. The barleywine is surprisingly roasty (normally barleywines are more caramely and sweet) but it works nicely. Really easy to drink for a 10% brew, and should definitely age nicely.

    Their third XXX is an Imperial Helles Bock, if I recall. Still need to try that one, but didn't want to pay 15+ for a bottle when I saw it. If I can find one for ten, I'll go for it.

    Piling on, the Imperial Stout is delicious. Excellent is the operative word. I got a case when it came out and have 6 bottles left. It's going faster than I thought it would.

    I have 1 bottle of the Imperial Helles Bock but it's in with the other laying down beers. I really should crack that one this weekend. I'll report back when I do. I fully expect a wonderful beer when I do get to it.

    Nutty roasted deliciousness, not overwhelming by any stretch of the imagination, perfect for watching a hockey game on a cool evening, can drink all 6 of these. Not their regular hoppy madness, though the hops are still there, Sierra Nevada can apparently do no wrong.

    Agreed 100%! This is why they are my favorite, and have always been.
