Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

At $6 a bomber here, I think the 15th anniversary is very reasonably priced too, for such a tasty beer. Do you really consider 11% to be a low abv though?

Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

You should try Port Older Viscosity. I don't know if it's better than BCS, but it's damn good. It might be hard to find on the east coast, but I did have it on tap in Massachusetts a couple of years ago, so maybe it's out there.

Yeah, it was half as a joke and half to give people cheap swill to pound if they wanted to get more drunk after the tasting was over. It did give a nice contrast in flavor for comparison with other beers.
