    here's my review of this 12th Anni edition: this **** puts hair on your chest.

    had the whole bottle last night. served warm in chilled mug.

    poured a motor oil-like consistency.

    head was completely brown, and just a bit thin. body very very dark. a strong whiff of aroma resembled a rosy red wine.

    good level of bitterness. a slight syrupy chocolate flavor. some hint of oatmeal

    and... I forget the rest. I got bushed.

    this stout is a wow. it's good ****.

    The 8-8-08 is spectacular ! It actually reminded me of the Hugh Malone from Allagash. I love the Belgian/West Coast hoppy cross which is a pretty rare style to come by. I had my doubts before opening it, because I thought the 07 and 06 were "ok" and not brewed for immediate consumption - but rather ones to cellar. That wasn't the case with the 08 for me ! I actually can't see it cellaring too well because the hop profile will probably diminish at a quick rate. I intend on enjoying as much of those as I can right now.

    Recently I had BridgePort's "Stumptown Tart" which was damn near perfect. Such a classy brew. Midnight Sun's "Arctic Devil Barley Wine" was hands down one of the best barleywine style ales I have had in a long time. Safe to say it would make my top 5 barleywine list.

    Dogfish Head's "Fort" was very good, but definitely a bottle that can be split between a group of people. I still have a ton of stuff to get to in the fridge, and just ordered another shipment of beers from the internet which should be arriving on Friday.

    Tried the 8-8-08 and liked it. Like the hint of hoppiness in it.

    Cracked into my 6er of Lagunitas Sirius. This year's batch is better than last years. No after taste. Creamy and hoppy!

    Still haven't tried the 08, but agree with your comments on the Sirius. I've been alternating between that and the Lagunitas Censored this week.

    I had another 8/8/8 and it was much better. I think I drank the first one too cold. Or perhaps I was hoping for a different taste. This new Belgian IPA style is taking a little getting used to.

    I like Blue Moon and the summer style of it Honey Moon. I tried the fall Harvest Moon and wasn't that impressed.

    I really liked this beer I had from San Diego Brewing Co. . was a blueberry wheat, with just a little blueberry to it, very refreshing...

    I had a few great beers yesterday in honor of my brother's birthday.

    Oregon Trail Bourbon Porter - this was outstanding ! The bourbon flavor is such a nice compliment to a great tasting porter to begin with. At 10% ABV I wouldn't have had any problems finishing it on my own, it was that good! However, we did a tasting and everybody got to try it. I am looking into grabbing another one of those.

    Fred From The Wood - another stellar brew! I think beer advocate has it classified as an old ale. The oak flavor is very present but not overpowering. Notes of leather and tobacco came to mind as well. One of the better beers I have had in quite a while.

    Supplication - Damn is Russian River possibly the most consistent brewery out there? Christ it was good ! The cherry flavor was nice and overall made the beer come off less sour-ish than the Beatification and Temptation (those ones are damn near perfect though, don't get me wrong). I have 1 left but if I ever get the opportunity to buy some again - I will stock up !!!

    Have I not been raving about the Supplication for a couple of years? Even better when you put it away for a year.
