    Earlier tonight my wife and I enjoyed Avery Maharajna and Green Flash Palate Wrecker on tap tonight (fist pump to my Father-in-Law for watching the kids tonight!!!!) :)


    Palate Wrecker:


    Got home, the kids have no school tomorrow and now our youngest son and I are enjoying a great AC/DC Blu-Ray (Live at Donington) with the surround sound cranked.

    Almost 20 years of marriage and nothing has changed along with two great kids who enjoy music and study hard.

    Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! :)

    This seemed appropriate for the holiday by myself as usual. Damn excellent chocolate cream stout. Lots of sweet malty complexity and balance.

    This is a fricking GREAT tripel. All arouind harmony of honey malt and bready sweetness with apricot/pear/apple/golden raisin/lemon zest fruitiness; AND a nice prominence of clove and pepper esters. Fricking delicious man. Appearance was spot on with rocky fluffy head and lace that lasts for the whole glass. I love Tripels all day.

    Just cracked my Saision I bottled 2 sundays ago, needs a bit more time for carbing, but the caps distended already so I had to see whats up(2.9 CO2 vol primed). Fricking awesome stuff. Lots of lemon, pear, grape, pineapple, apple, clove, pepper, wheat, and earth. I used Nelson Sauvin and Sorachi Ace on this guy. WLP565 Dupont at 85F, did great work.

  32. Was going to have a two hearted or celebration but that choklat has me feeling mighty good right now. Also I have a weekend of heavy drinking with my old roommates from college ahead of me, so instead I'm finishing the last of my makers and heading to bed
