    That's killer....exactly the type of haul that I like to see....

    BTW, the last couple bottles of that Guinness Silver Jubilee that I've opened were absolutely delicious. Almost took on a nice smokey sweetness over the years. Infinitely better than any fresh Guinness that I've had.
  5. Damn, really? Can't wait to open it now, especially as it was only £4

    I've actually had quite a few great experiences with a whole slew of Silver Jubilees.....only a few duds out of maybe 20 or so. The Guinness was one of the bigger surprises as expectations were immediately low. I'd assume that the original base recipe had something to do with it......perhaps similar to the Foreign Export.

    I'd encourage you to track down an Ansell's Silver Jubilee if you have the means. Still one of my favorite "uber-vintage" beers to date.

    The moment of anticipation:


    followed by the big reveal:


    Evolution #3 x 6
    Green Flash West Coast IPA x 4
    Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA x 6
    DC Brau Corruption
    Boulevard Double Wide
    Terrapin Oak Aged Big Hoppy Monster
    plus 2 of the trader's APA home brews!

    Had a vague idea what my end of the trade was going to be.....didn't expect it to be this sweet! Thanks Evan.

    Don't want to tick anyone off, but can I paint a picture of my latest haul? My fridge looks like this; it's lop-sided by 13 beers (singles)...various stouts, weissebiers, ales, and several bombers of IPA's (good stuff too, Lagunitas, Founders, Bells, Victory, Stone, North Peak etc), all pushed to the very back by my 16 (two down already!) fresh as could be Hopslams (OK, quite splitting hairs...they are only nine days old), all lined up in the front in nice rows and waiting in the queue for consumption. I've promised myself only 18 this year (I've got other stuff to explore), and promised too to drink only one daily until they're gone, and supplement with the bunch in the back of the fridge. And why not, it's my stinkin' favorite beer! Everything else in there can wait. Who know, maybe this weekend I'll cheat and have two at a sitting. This stuff is off the charts!
