Couple glasses of a cheap house white from a local winery, and a couple snifters of Remy-Martin vsop. Finished the bottle, time to replace it. Think I'll get a bottle of Hine this time.

Firestone Walker Velvet Merkin Oatmeal Stout. (bourbon barrel aged).

 

Their equivalent to Fremont Brewing's Kentucky Dark Star.

 

It's very nice, but it doesn't hold a candle to the KDS.

Bourbon whiskey. Breckenridge. It's young but good.

Thanksgiving with friends yesterday.I brought a bottle of VP & MOL. A 20 something in from Boston told me he gets together with friends for absinthe night and so far they've only had Lucid.He asked me if I prepare absinthe in the "traditional & proper way" He was referring to lighting the sugar cube on fire.I corrected him in a gentle & fatherly way by telling him that was bullshit.He laughed & was happy to learn a couple things to bring back to his friends.He seemed pretty interested,so I told him to check out the WWS.Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.

Tish and I were up bright and early this morning to take part in the purchase of a stash of Black Friday Goose Island Bourbon County Stout on sale at Elizabeth Station.

 

When I tried this stuff in 2008, I found it to be overly hot and bourbon forward, with little balancing roast or fruitiness, and only minimal chocolate flavor.

 

This year's version is two percent higher in alcohol (14.9%), and yet there is barely any discernible heat, and the flavor profile is astoundingly deep, rich, and complex with a velvety and syrupy texture that is nonpareil. I love to play the "can you top this" game with beers (and particularly my cherished Imperial Stouts), and this one has laid down the gauntlet.

 

When I heard that Anheuser Busch had purchased Goose Island in 2011, I was highly skeptical of this beer showing any evolution, but happily, I was completely mistaken.

Sounds interesting.

Unfortunately, our great state *yawn* won't stock any AB or coors products over 3.2 ABV or ABW.....I forget.

I've gotten by without them for quite a spell.

Cheers!
