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.

Brewery 10: Crooked Stave

Gift Of Time: Black Friday Edition. After thinking long and hard about it, I think this line contains some of the best stouts being made that I'm aware of. So far there have been three releases, aged 24/36/44 months in various Heaven Hill and Angel's Envy barrels, this is the middle one released Black Friday last year. My day went beer shipping, whiskey shopping, drop the wife off at the mall then to Crooked Stave for this release, it was a pretty good day. This beer is as dark as sin and very boozy, but the oak is the key man mellowing everything out, it's absurdly balanced. Crooked Stave typically specialized in sours, but the few times a year they put out a heavy stout I always take notice

Brewery 11: Aslin Beer Company

Moonshield. Aslin is an interesting brewery in Alexandria VA, I heard a story that their weekly releases got so popular in their old congested location and the lines caused a fire hazard so they had to move to a new location. I never went to the old one, but the new one is beautiful, huge warehouse like taproom with arcade games and TV's all around, and a massive to-go cooler. This particular beer is an imperial stout with raspberry, white chocolate and vanilla. Sweet but not too sweet to drink, I like some of their other stuff a little better (they have a stout with lemon that is way better than it sounds) but regardless a great pour



I'm slowing this down from daily to a couple a week as I start getting into the deep end finding new breweries that haven't already made the list. I'll keep going as long as I can, only counting bottles I had when I started the series, and see how many different breweries I can get to if I dig deep into the back of the shelves. There's some scary (and fun) bottles back there

Perfect!

I haven't had a beer in years. That means I have a few bottles that got some age. I tried the Breakfast Stout from Founder's and man oh man, smooth as silk and tasty as "all get out".

Hootie, we need to find that for you!

Love me some Breakfast Stout, Greg, but I'm definitely drinking 10 times more bourbon right now. Though rarely 12 oz. at a time.

Brut IPA is still a thing? That trend hit real hard and everyone was doing them, then suddenly they just disappeared. Everyone thought they were going to be the new NEIPA.

These guys still do it, and a heckuva good job. First time trying it. Tastes similar to their NEIPA, M43. Supposedly lower in carbs. Idk, I just like it.
