    Sorry, I should like this as a beer lover. I don't. I'll do one more meme for Phil for my last check in. —by Robert Bustard

    Like seriously. I've had a few beers that are stronger, but none had given me diabetes before. From like 4 sips. —by Robert Bustard

    I fully expected to see this near the bottom of the barrel when I checked on the scores. And you crazy kids don't disappoint. —by Robert Bustard

    In the honor of Pliny day at Eulogy, I might as well see if I can get through the Euro beers to close this jawn out. —by Robert Bustard

    Most Belgians aren't my style (except lambic, that's amazing). Anyway, happy to get a chance to tick this so I don't have to again. For you Heady dissenters, I'm hoping I didn't start this. And I'll assume you never could get the Alchemist to give you 30 cases of beer. And not like it sits in some warehouse, it sells out like everyday. If you wanted it fresher, you could have just drank them two weeks ago like I did. It's not that hard. Sadly I'm most likely unable to hit 2SP. I'm picturing Phil arriving like this—by Robert Bustard

  • Sunday Morning Stout

    Picked up the new batch of Sundays. Since I wanted it fresh, I had a Sunday on Thursday so I can drink last year's Sunday on Sunday. Have to run out on Sunday morning, so I can't really have this Sunday on Sunday morning. So I have to have it Saturday which turned Sunday. So technically I'm drinking Sunday on Sunday. —by Robert Bustard

    So is this the beer we hate this year? Guess Phil can't find any sour fans. At least he adds 1 or 2 per year to troll you. I guess this didn't translate to good scores. On a side note, was happy to find pics of this broad with the tight silky shirt. ¡Muy bueno! It's working already—by Robert Bustard

    Ahh... You must be Beatrix. I can see the attraction. I remember when Bill was only five years old, I took him to the movies. It was a movie starring Lana Turner. "The Postman Always Ring Twice" with John Garfields. And whenever she would appear on the screen, Bill would begin to suck his thumb to an obscene amount. And I knew from this very moment, that this boy was a fool for blondes. Mmm... —by Robert Bustard

    Figured this should close out VD. Not VD, I don't have VD, but VD. This is fine, but get more of a roasty thing than the cacao nibs or raspberry. —by Robert Bustard

    I liked this more than I did when having it a few times before. Bet it's smooth af if I forget about it in the cellar for like 5 years. With that said, what happened to swing bands? There was like a dozen of them and then disappeared faster than I could finish this beer. —by Robert Bustard

  • 90 Minutes

    Listen up, ladies and gentlemen. Our fugitive has been continually hopped for 90 minutes. Average bottling date over uneven ground, barring injuries, is 2 months ago. That gives us a radius of 6 miles. What I want out of each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at 15 miles. Your fugitive’s name is Dr. Phil Aiken. Go get him.—by Robert Bustard

  • Troeg's Chocolate Stout

    So I'll try to follow the rules. I'll drink a week 1 beer in week 1. Except I knocked out an SMS before this. And. It the FOB SMS but a 17. Anyways, I have to ask why scratch beers are included. That depends on your goal. Throw in a beer or two that most haven't had, then I'm glad to have tried it. But they're never gonna by to win or place. Like Nimble Giant is the best Tröegs beer I've had, and it was the evolution of a number of scratch beers. One of which was in the case last year. —by Robert Bustard

    Damn it. This was my favorite beer for years. First beer I stood in line for. The gateway to spending all my disposable income on alcohol, saying it's a hobby. Luckily I only snagged a few cans for myself. Weird because I still enjoyed it on draft this year. Oh the creepy ass pic? Well for those of you on BeerNERDs, there are a few who post chug videos all the time. A few are great (some dude domed a Black Tuesday and then a Heaven & Hell in same night). But most are lame. A few of us thought, can we most videos that are even more stupid? As a matter of fact, yes we can. Enjoy! —by Robert Bustard

    I like CO's ode to obscure movies. This isn't that obscure, but it is set in...uh...never mind. Awesome to have a full week of Vermont beers. I just wish I had more right meow—by Robert Bustard

    So I was at my neighbor's house for the SB. And while I brought crowlers of other hops, the host asked as a joke if I head any heady in my fridge as they either never had it or had it maybe once. So I told them I had 3 Alchemist beers in my fridge that I'd bring over. Why am I telling you a story you probably don't give a shit about? Because I was forced to pour them out rather than drinking in the can. Any time I've seen ppl pour a final out, it looks like the image below. It wasn't really there with this can, and it was cool to share with folks who don't have access to it. And some guy went and grabbed a Perrin No Rules. That was awesome. —by Robert Bustard

    As a former presidential candidate, I've been quoted saying about the president: "This guy is a fraud. This guy ran for president of the United States saying, ‘I, Donald Trump, I’m going to take on Wall Street. These guys are getting away with murder.’ Then suddenly he appoints all these billionaires, his major financial adviser comes from Goldman Sachs, and now he’s going to dismantle legislation that protects consumers.” Having said that, his executive order on Vermont week is dead on balls accurate—by Robert Bustard

    Classic Phil... He and his buddies go all the way to Vermont for some of the best IPAs that anyone has access to, and wants us to wait a month to drink them. Maybe I read it upside down. You got a fucking dart in your neck. Good to be back. And ISO that FOB glass—by Robert Bustard
