Enjoyed this little guy recently. Man Florida is slaying stouts.

Got some different ones coming in next week hopefully.
Looks good! Only Angry Chair I've has was a collaboration with Untitled Art, a Chocolate Vanilla Maple Imperial Stout. A little too sweet for me but very well made

Day 6: Oskar Blues

"Smoker, Joker, Midnight Mocha." When these came out in 2018 I was overzealous and bought a case of a dozen, then quickly realized that 12 stovepipe cans of Mocha BA Ten Fidy was a lot of Ten Fidy. I stashed them and pulled out two or three from time to time, I think I may only have one left after this one after some intentional thinning (and purchase of subsequent BA Ten Fidy variants). Really love this beer, the coffee part of the mocha has started to fade but the chocolate is sticking around for a little longer. It's still very noticeable but I could see this being more nuanced with some more time



Oskar blues has fun with the messages on the bottom of their cans, if you drink one of their beers don't forget to check. Saw one posted online recently from a beer canned one 4/21/20 and a note "364 more days"

Day 7: Avery

Double Barrel Maple Stout. Syrup syrup syrup booze. The 15.3% ABV cuts through the sweetness of the maple, although it's still a touch too sweet. I think I brought one of these to a herf last year, not sure who got some but this beer has gotten better since then. Looking forward to trying one again in 2 years

Day 8: Adroit Theory

Demogorgon. Adroit theory is one of the top breweries experimenting with the dark stuff (at least in my opinion), located in middle of nowhere VA. If you live in Virginia I think you can order their stuff shipped to you, otherwise it's pretty hard to get outside of going to the brewery or finding a good bottle shop in VA. This particular can tasted like equal parts lime gose, tripel and oyster stout. The squid ink adds a unique saltiness, they use it in a number of their stouts. I didn't look too close at the can when I poured this and assumed it was a stout, I was very wrong which caught me off guard. I probably should have known that, given that I had this at the brewery when I picked it up, but in my defense I had about 13 10+% ABV samplers that day. Then I got a ride to the airport for a very interesting flight

Day 9: Victory

Java Cask. Another one that I didn't read closely, thought this was a stout but a closer look shows a "BBA blonde coffee stout." Quite a bit lighter than I was going for, but actually quite pleasant

Great reviews, Ben. I like several of Avery's offerings, but that one ain't gonna touch my lips (phrasing).

It's not that I'm on my ass. I'm on my ass with bourbon. I just need to transition to stouts for a couple days.
