    Picked up a bottle of Woodfor Reserve Double Oaked. The nose was chocolate covered cherries, maybe carrot cake. Taste was the same but finished with espresso and a hint of hazelnut. It is a delicious non-challenging bourbon

    Just the peel I think - I was thinking about putting both but then it might be a bit overpowering.

    As for drinking: I turned 30 on Saturday and drank so much beer, I'm still a bit hungover now :lol:

    yeah, Think its one of those things it will take a few batches to dial in right. better to start small

    I like the brew dog Elvis juice grapefruit IPA . I need to brew it one day

    brew wise its in autumn here now so time for some darker beers .

    next weekend going to brew an 5.5% american brown ale which I am using as a yeast starter for a arrogant bastard ale clone after that

    its def one of my faves. especially as a winter beer .My local bottle shop can't get it anymore so brewing my own. may take a few batches to get it right

    but my version will be $2 a 750ml vs $12 for a pint can at the shop ,so I wont have my wife rolling her eyes every time i have one

    Just bought the Arrogant Bastard Enter Night Pilsner and it tastes like shit. It tastes more like an IPA than a traditional pilsner with how hoppy it is. It's not terribly bitter but the hoppy/resin taste does not work in a pilsner at all imo.
    This is the worst thing Metallica has collaborated on since Lulu :lol:

    They did collaborate with Master Distiller Dave Pickerall to create Blackened Whiskey. I haven’t tried it because I can’t find it. I heard mixed or mediocre reviews on it. Dave Pickerall was a super famous and respected distiller so I’d say it could be enjoyable

    ehh I'll pass, I'm not a big whiskey fan. As far as band related beers go, the megadeth beer collab with Unibroue was pretty good, same with the Trooper Ale from Robinsons.

    im a huge whiskey fan, scotch and bourbon. Blackened is pretty much a low end bourbon being priced at $50.

    That's one of my favorite beers, actually. I'd drink a lot of it if it wasn't so goddamned expensive :lol:

    Whoa, a lot of liquid carbs in those boxes!

    Incidentally, I find that KBS pairs very well with cinnamon rolls... :lol:

    I don't drink anymore but when I did I drank a whole assortment of beers and spirits. As far as band related brews go I had this one a few times and I must say it was pretty good and it did the trick. It tasted almost like your typical German beer.

    I didn't even notice really being that drunk, but I had a fair bit of a hangover the next day :lol: We had a bunch of friends over at our place and BBQ'd stuff and made donuts and all that stuff. Apart from drinking it, me and my friend finally started brewing the grapefruit IPA I mentioned earlier, and it's now been in the fermenter for almost a week, bubbling away nicely.
    :cheers:
