Celebrating my Birthday with a bottle of 2012 Firestone Walker Sucaba barleywine. One of the best barleywines I have had. Too bad its my one and only bottle!

Had a few different brews today. Split a bottle of boulevard imp stout. Great combo of whiskey barrels and dark truth.
Had alpha klaus by 3f. Anything they do with hops is always top notch. The combo of a porter with a bunch of hops just is something different than what you typically have.

I haven't had this years yet but I've felt the same about previous vintages.
I cracked open a 2013 bottle earlier. I was never a fan in previous years and that carries over to this edition. The fatal flaw for me is that they use Dark Truth as the base recipe.

I found a GI Sofie at Brown Bag in Olathe earlier today. Just fantastic, although I think I would appreciate it even more in warm weather.

I agree, coffee fades almost as quickly as hops do. 2013 Coffee is an incredible beer.

I really enjoyed this as well.

Not much more yet. They just went from a 10 bbl to a 30 bbl last week. I would expect to see more beer soon but I doubt they will meet demand even with the 30 bbl.
