A Lesson from My Father: If given a choice, pick the beer with an animal on the label.

I think Santa counts. Right?

Scrivener says:
Or if there's no animal on the label, just hold one while you drink the beer?

How that choice work out for you? The reviews you linked to were widely split on it.

Fav'd and king'd, because:

1) 14%abv beer
2) you used beeradvocate in a CLAME
3) Maggie is involved

So where'd you pick up the beer? I haven't seen that at The Nook, so I'm guessing Atlanta.

Nice pic!

BTW thanks a lot for the link: I didn't know about beeradvocate and I will make use of it, sure!

I like a man who isn't afraid to drink a beer a little early in the season for said beer.
I brewed a samichlaus clone about 3 years ago... one of the few beers I've let age a significant amount of time. I've only drank 1 and was planning on getting into them this winter. Remind me and I'll bring you one at the throwdown.

Now, that's worthy of a fave and a king. Cheers!

tedford says:
That's some strong brew at 14%. My experience has been that once you get above 11-12% it adversely affects the flavor of the beer. That's probably just my personal tastes though. Would still love to give it a try.

Phil says:
I've heard the opposite advice about wine: Avoid anything with an animal on the label or in the name.

Cheers!

Pip says:
@gfmorris I can't remember if I got this in Atlanta, Orlando, or Fayetteville! One of those three, though.

@flainez Yup, lens cap.

@shularbrau I can't wait!

About the beer: It was really good! I'm always impressed with a beer that can have +10% abv and NOT overpower you with an alcohol tatse. This was one of those beers.

Brian says:
Excellent. Man's best companion and a bottle of alcohol. What more could you want?

Excellent shot of some excellent brew.

Of course, I haven't tried that brew yet, but being that I can be a bit of a beer snob (as some of my "Miller Lite" drinkin' friends refer to me as) and always looking for some out-of-the-ordinary brews, this would definitely take the cake.
