I used to, but honestly, they are so commonly available anymore (literally throughout the year) that there's no need to rush around for the regular variety here. The odd variants are still quite a bit more scarce, and hence more coveted, so I would step out for chance at one of them. I agree that there are better BA stouts than the regular version, but it still is a pretty solid would-not-kick-her-out-of-bed stout.

This was surprisingly bitter, and surprisingly absent the tartness which I expect from anything with Brett on the label. After a few sips, however, it really started to grow on me. While the flavor didn't really progress much throughout the glass, it was interestingly complex and quite satisfying.






No surprises here. A simple but entirely competent interpretation of a classic style.

No, it's a tall boy. Just bad perspective.

If you seriously need a fix for this, I got your back. Just let me know.

There's a local shop where I found last year's release (which I still haven't opened), and I shall check there first.

Delirium in 4-pack cans? I know what I'm having for breakfast.

One of my favorite beers, what did that 4-pack run you? I noticed they just upped the price of the price of singles and 4-pack bottles here.

No idea. I bought it at Target a few days ago, and the receipt is long gone.

Fair enough, I noticed last week, a 4-pack of 11.4oz bottles had gone from 12.99 to 18.99. That's a pretty steep hike for no discernible reason.

I have no idea where this beer came from. I mean, I know in a general sense that it had to have been given to me by someone for whom I performed mechanical / ECU-related services, but it's been at least five years since I've engaged in that sort of exchange. I might have been living in Florida or California at the time, which covers a lot of territory, both geographically and politically.

(I did a lot of pro-bono work, and received a lot of beer, during the 2009-2013 timeframe.)

So while I cannot remember who you are specifically, you have my thanks. It's aged well. Light, but with a nicely complex, slightly tart character which lingers on the tongue. The second pour produced a lot of sediment, which added a rich, yeasty character. Basically liquid bread. Good stuff.

SF Beer week brought us a special treat this year.



Yes, I am an idiot and poured it before I read the can. I drank the 2nd one straight from the can and it was also excellent.
