Totally agree. I was just throwing it out there on the slim chance someone had a hookup. I had a Papier that I opened before I realized they were doing a vertical series with that too. Kicking myself.

Bummer man! I've got several Papiers, but unfortunately was never able to get any of the BA Papiers. Luckily though I was able to sample some at the first RS Initiation party.

Lagunitas Sucks. Wasn't expecting an IPA and was actually surprised when I see it was listed as IIPA on BA. I liken this to PtE as that's the only DIPA I know of that has the crisp and clarity this beer does. Not bad at all but I was thinking this would be a spiced winter warmer ale. A head cold I'm trying to keep away might be effecting my tastebuds.

I tasted a super floral-hoppy low abv imperial red..... Like Alesmith's winter Yulesmith. The style is irrelevant , it just rules! Cheers!

Go find this if you can. WOW!!!!!! You better be wearing your big boy pants when you try this. I split a bottle with a friend two nights ago. Old Rasputin, already being one of the best RI Stouts made can't be improved upon, can it? Well, in short - YES!!! This stuff is amazing, and I hate using the word "amazing", but that is exactly what it is. Bourbon nose, figs, sweet caramel, coffee, some bitter chocolate, nice creamy mouth-feel and a WONDERFUL alcohol warmth. My goodness. What a treat. At $15 a bottle I thought it was well worth the investment. I'll be picking up a couple of bottles to lay down b/c I think this one will get better with some age. I don't know how my 3 bottles of Black Xanthus are going to stack up......

awesome man! i picked up a XIV Barrel Aged Old Rasputin last night at Total Wine. It was in a random spot all by itself so I snagged it. Might pop it open tonight along with my 6 pack of Snow Day from New Belgium.

I should have noted, the pic I showed isn't the XIV that I had. It's just the first one I found that wasn't a monster sized pic. You're going to LOVE the brew. As a matter of fact, off to the Pour House to have one right now!

We just got back from Orlando and a family trip to Walt Disney World. I had my first Black and Tan at the Rose and Crown pub at the English pavilion in the Great Britain area. Very good mix.
