    Has anybody seen if the Anchor Our Merry Christmas Ale has hit anywhere? I always like that stuff b/c it's different every year.
    The new Anchor Our Merry Christmas is out.

    The Firestone 14 were $21.99 at BevMo. Total Wine had some 2 dollar off coupon and some of my buddies ended up getting theirs for 16! I feel like I got ripped off, and later came to find out that some BevMos were price matching!

    DFH Theobroma. Not what I was expecting. Glad I tried it but I wouldn't look for it again.

    Well, when I heard that it was brewed with cocoa nibs and powder I was expecting a porter or stout style beer, but of course Theobroma is a lighter beer with a honey golden color. I picked up the sweetness of the cocoa powder but none of the flavor. Got the bitterness of the chilies but no flavor and hardly any zing from the heat. Taste overall was boozy and reminded me of sipping some liquor. I dunno, left me wanting more of what it wasn't and less of what it was. Just not my style, I guess.

    Do realize that one thing peppers do is increase the flavor of other spices.

    I have had spicy beers before like Cave Creek and when they overdue the heat, they are horrible.

    I was picking up a little of the chipotle smoke in the beer and also quite a bit of cocoa in the finish, but I also did have two of the Theobromas and they were both different on the ratios of the spices, cocoa, etc.
    I have had consistently issues with DHF's beers before, especially the Aprihop

    I'm with you. With those ingredients, I was expecting something better and bolder in flavor. DFH's Sahtea and Bitches Brew are way better for the same price.

    The Firestone 14th Anniversary was off the hook. Great flavor. Reminds me of Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout, just not as thick which makes it even better. Can get a good buzz off the 12.5 ABV in it.

    Piggybacking on the Firestone 14 discussion, have a look.

    Man, it hit me more like a 15% would. I think 12.5% is a very conservative figure. Maybe off a few %'s.
