    Well if they had spent half as much on the beer recipe, as they did on the bottle design, it probably would have been pretty good. The bottle does make a nice vase.

    sure does. I can't even see through it.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    Just pulled inventory of my cellared brews. Open to trades/tastings.

    DRGinLBC, That's quite a collection there! Mind if I pass the list on to some friends who may be interested in buying/trading?

    Last night opened a bottle of Infinium. Nice beer, although not worth the pricetag. Would make a nice session beer aside from the high price and 10% ABV. Had a nice fairly crisp and dry body with what I would say was kinda like a "lite" version of a dubbel or tripel.

    Right now I'm having an '08 bottle of Black Flag which is about the exact opposite of Infinium. This one is syrupy, dark, with an almost chocolate syrup profile, no head, and probably the lowest carbonation of any beer I've ever had that wasn't actually flat. Intense and reminds me of Ten Fidy without its (IMO) over done roasting that always reminds me of soy sauce.

    last night I cracked open GI's Pere Jacques 2010 Belgian Style Ale

    it poured a dark caramel colored body. drinking it, I noticed heavy floral or fruity presence. I think they kept that stuff in the barrels previously used for wine, is what my impression was. the ale also produced some sweetness that is reminiscence of caramel, with hints of spice scattered throughout.

    it was a pretty strong beer, although light on harshness.

    Was it good or does it still need some aging? I've got a bottle of the 2010 laying down right now and figured on drinking it next year.

    Had Left Coast's Asylym on Saturday. Great Trippel. Nice and sweet with an 11% wallop. Also one of the more reasonably priced trippels out there.

    Yesterday, I had Rogue's Chipotle Ale. Love the roastiness of this ale. Haven't had this in a couple of years but it was well worth the wait.

    it's pretty good. I'm sure that it will change through aging down the road. I should pick up a couple more of those, eh?
