    Jealous of you and the gang that are there! Hope you guys had a blast!

    I had some Zombie Dust tonight while I caught up on Game of Thrones. Not sure which was better, the show or the beer.

    Did a SBS of Prairie Bomb and Prairie/Evil Twin Bible Belt with my wife. Whoa, two seriously good beers! The evening cooled down enough to enjoy them outside as a reward for sweated in the evening heat. Slight edge to the Bomb, at least tonight, but both outstanding examples of imperial stouts.

    Re: What beer are you drinking, Spring 14?

    Had a small beer tasting over the weekend with a few friends that I keep forgetting to post about. Although small we had a few good ones!

    Beer tasting May 14.JPG

    A fairly dense dark lineup for spring time but i can drink a good malty stout most anytime of the year!

    Uinta Birthday Suit Sour 20th from 2013 - decent but tried at the end of the night which may have kept it from being able to show its full potential.

    Cigar City Hanapu's Stout - one from 2012 and one from 2014. The age on the 2012 made it a little richer and pleasant to me.

    3 Tavern's Quasimodo Quad style and Theophan the Recluse Russian Stout - A local brewery. The Theophan was good, the Quad seemed to be rather thin and lacking.

    Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Jack & Kens Black Barleywine from 2010 - Really nice dense malty beer with little of the Sierra Nevada hops profile. Not sure if it was the age but this was very nice!

    The Bruery Sucre - Their 6th Anniversary bottle and while it was not Bois (what is?) this was again a superb effort. Beautiful dense raisony port like sweetness with little or no sense of the 16% ABV and some nice woody syrupy goodness to finish.

    Pairie Bomb - Very nice chocolate-y stout that again handled its 14% ABV well but suffered a bit in comparison to the Sucre.

    Bourbon County Brand Stout - A bit similar but perhaps the most oily, syrupy of the bunch. In a good way of course! Still, to me the Sucre was still just the better drink.

    Founders Backwoods Bastard - While similar the Bastard seems to have a pleasant edge that cuts through the wood and oily texture. Still a great one.

    The last bottle (which we tried first) was a homemade blueberry mead. A bit sweet but a good bit of blueberry. Not very thick which I kind of expect with a mead. More like a watery blueberry vodka. Perfect for the ladies...

    Small distributor that rewards good customers and a few board members with their fingers on the sour pulse.

    There really isn't much to go around.
