Hear ye hear ye it is almost time for the epic tasting! The details are thus:
7 barrel aged porters, stouts, and imperial stouts of various brewers from across our great land. Pours of each beer range from 2 to 2.3 ounces. Fun fact: You will consume a volume of alcohol equivalent of 32 ounces of Budweiser if you drink all of this beer.

Thrax, Lincoln, Wags, Annes, Meghann, Gnomequeen, MAGIC, UPSLynx, Bandrik, Rootwyrm, RyanMeray. If you cannot attend, and I will be bugging you on Friday night, then you are expected to either find someone to fill your seat or pony up the $12. Sorry, this beer isn't cheap, and I'm not making everyone else pay more.
Bring $12. Bring suitable snacks if so desired. Be thirsty.
I'll go over some stuff about the tasting for 5 to 10 minutes, and then we'll begin. Your goal - Decide which of these fabulous ales are your favorites, and if you feel up to challenging yourself, try to quantify why
. What components of the aroma, appearance, taste, palate, and overall craftsmanship lead to that being better?
The tasting will take at least 60 minutes, moreso if you're really savoring things and taking tasting notes.
Can't wait to see you there!
