    [19:05] <threecb> I agree with Hogie that in most cases, even though you may get the warmth of it, the "bite" starts to be noticed above 8%.
    [19:05] <{Tweek}> try some pure (or as close to as you can) alcohol sometime
    [19:05] <toofargone> I think the ETOH comes through the nose, a perception of taste
    [19:05] <HogieWan> not ethnol, but other similr compounds
    [19:05] <studentofbeer> *shudder*
    [19:05] <{Tweek}> ever had everclear?
    [19:05] <studentofbeer> well, yeah, lol
    [19:06] <studentofbeer> i did go to college
    [19:06] <{Tweek}> what did it taste like?
    [19:06] <studentofbeer> hrmmm
    [19:06] <{Tweek}> see
    [19:06] <toofargone> lived in TX for a long time it is the state drink
    [19:06] <studentofbeer> not much
    [19:06] <HogieWan> it tastes like hawaiian punch
    [19:06] <{Tweek}> just tastes hot
    [19:06] <{Tweek}> lol
    [19:06] <studentofbeer> haha hogie
    [19:06] <{Tweek}> when mixed!
    [19:06] <threecb> LOL
    [19:06] <studentofbeer> exactly
    [19:06] <{Tweek}> that is some nasty stuff
    [19:06] <toofargone> ok I'm going for seconds
    [19:06] <studentofbeer> good call
    [19:07] <HogieWan> well, fellas - it's been real
    [19:07] <HogieWan> it's been fun
    [19:07] <{Tweek}> you off?
    [19:07] <HogieWan> yep
    [19:07] <threecb> I've found that I notice the alcohol in the couple of impy pilsners I've had.
    [19:07] <studentofbeer> we're just getting warmed up
    [19:07] <{Tweek}> ok, cya hogie
    [19:07] <HogieWan> I got chores
    [19:07] <studentofbeer> thanks for coming hogie
    [19:07] <{Tweek}> ahh
    [19:07] <{Tweek}> newly married
    [19:07] <threecb> cya hogie.
    [19:07] <{Tweek}> I heard the whip crack
    [19:07] <{Tweek}>
    [19:07] <HogieWan> glad I could finally make one of these
    [19:08] <studentofbeer> <---fiancee out of town
    [19:08] <toofargone> bye Hogie
    [19:08] <studentofbeer> bye hogie
    [19:08] <{Tweek}> have a good night
    [19:08] <threecb> wife at work.
    [19:08] <HogieWan> I had a late night with the boys from work yesterday, so . .
    The more you disapprove the more fun it is for me.

    [19:08] <Osh> 12chow
    [19:08] <studentofbeer> ahhh gotcha
    [19:08] <{Tweek}> I hear ya, just giving ya grief
    [19:08] <{Tweek}> that is what I do
    [19:08] <HogieWan> l8r
    [19:08] * HogieWan has left #beer
    [19:08] <studentofbeer> so far the only thing that disappointed me about this beer is the head died real fast on mine and no lacing
    [19:08] <{Tweek}> ya
    [19:08] <Osh> 12still got some here
    [19:09] <threecb> I have very little lacing, too.
    [19:09] <toofargone> I wanted to do a vertical tonight with SNPA, Harvest and SNCA but ran out of time to get the Harvest
    [19:09] <Osh> 12clean pint glass
    [19:09] <{Tweek}> though I think the mouthfeel makes up for that
    [19:09] <threecb> tweek, what's your glassware?
    [19:09] <studentofbeer> probably so
    [19:09] <{Tweek}> pint glass
    [19:09] <studentofbeer> ive got a 2004 and even a 2003 SNCA i was thinking of breaking out
    [19:09] <toofargone> the SNCA sure puts the pale in its place, though (keep that on tap)
    [19:09] <threecb> seems like the pints have more head?
    [19:10] <{Tweek}> to be honest, never had this in another type of glassware
    [19:10] <{Tweek}> so I have no point of comparison
    [19:10] <{Tweek}> Stod and I keep threatening to have a barleywine party
    [19:10] <studentofbeer> hrmm mine is pretty warm and the aroma is getting to be almost overripe
    [19:10] <studentofbeer> hehe
    [19:10] <studentofbeer> that would be fun
    [19:10] <threecb> this is the first time i'm having it in a goblet. gonna pour the second in a pint.
    [19:10] <studentofbeer> forget the toronado bwine fest, head to tweeks
    [19:10] <{Tweek}> we both have so many bottles in our cellars
    [19:10] <{Tweek}>
    [19:10] <Osh> 12maybe I'll have my next one in a Dogfish Head goblet
    [19:10] <{Tweek}> he has bigfoot from way back
    [19:11] <toofargone> student how does it keep?
    [19:11] <studentofbeer> ? sorry
    [19:11] <studentofbeer> oh i dont know
    [19:11] <studentofbeer> havent had them yet
    [19:11] <studentofbeer> i did have 1 2004 recently
    [19:11] <toofargone> the older bottles SNCA
    [19:11] <{Tweek}> one thing I have noticed in this years batch
    [19:11] <studentofbeer> it was more mellow, more like an esb
    [19:11] <studentofbeer> still good
    [19:11] <{Tweek}> is that there is a slight sourness to the nose
    The more you disapprove the more fun it is for me.

    [19:12] <{Tweek}> dont recall that ever before
    [19:12] <studentofbeer> you could tell it had age. havent tried a 2003, think i only have 1
    [19:12] <threecb> I had an 04 2 weeks ago, I thought it lost the hop assertiveness. But was still a nice beer.
    [19:12] <studentofbeer> im not getting the sour
    [19:12] <{Tweek}> first time though maybe I had a flawed bottle, but sever 6 packs later it is still there
    [19:12] <studentofbeer> just finding it in the hops/grapefruit
    [19:12] <{Tweek}> give your glass a good swirl
    [19:12] <studentofbeer> im still getting that riesling aroma tho, that was a good call
    [19:13] <studentofbeer> i guess im finding that more like grass or something
    [19:13] <studentofbeer> not sour
    [19:13] <toofargone> I don't think I could keep it around, tho have been tempted with barleywine
    [19:13] <studentofbeer> well maybe lemon
    [19:13] <{Tweek}> stick your nose in, but dont inhale, just let the aroma sift up
    [19:13] <studentofbeer> oh weirdf
    [19:13] <{Tweek}> there is a touch of sour at the end of the aroma
    [19:13] <studentofbeer> i totally know what you are talking about
    [19:13] <studentofbeer> i dont think ive ever actually smelled a beer that way
    [19:13] <{Tweek}>
    [19:13] <toofargone> me either good call tweek
    [19:13] <studentofbeer> thats kind of amazing
    [19:14] <{Tweek}> you sell yourself short with an inhale
    [19:14] <{Tweek}> get more out of letting the aromas work for themselves
    [19:14] <studentofbeer> damn, that's revolutionary. thanks!
    [19:14] <{Tweek}> hehe
    [19:14] <toofargone> wonder if that works for wine too, always sorta snorted the stuff
    [19:14] <{Tweek}> yea
    [19:14] <{Tweek}> that is how I learned it
    [19:14] <threecb> have you ever been to a winery and been near the mashed grapes (I guess the extractor)? That's what the sourness smells like to me.
    [19:15] <{Tweek}> yea
    [19:15] <{Tweek}> similar
    [19:15] <studentofbeer> ok i added a second bottle, poured vigorously, and got a pretty big head this time
    [19:15] <{Tweek}> hehe
    [19:16] <{Tweek}> I would love to taste this one on cask
    [19:16] <studentofbeer> that mashed grapes, that's sort of what i was thinking of when i said overripe,
    [19:16] <studentofbeer> yeah, damn
    [19:16] <threecb> poured the second into a pint. had to tame the head.
    [19:16] <studentofbeer> that would be great
    [19:17] <toofargone> did you leave the second bottle on the counter, student?
    [19:17] <Osh> 12Ok, third and last bottle for te nite
    The more you disapprove the more fun it is for me.

    [19:17] <threecb> that's what I initially pegged as reisling. but it got stronger as it warmed.
    [19:17] <{Tweek}> crap
    [19:17] <{Tweek}> I forgot to take my 2nd out of the fridge brb
    [19:17] <studentofbeer> between my legs, lol, got it nice and warm
    [19:17] <threecb> cask would be nice!
    [19:17] <toofargone> oh my
    [19:17] <Osh> 12never seen it on cask here
    [19:17] <threecb> heheh, that's what I did.
    [19:18] <threecb> I was hoping to run into it in DC.
    [19:18] <studentofbeer> that riesling flavor really sticking with me--that sour/grassy
    [19:18] <Osh> 12Hell the kegs don't last but a couple of weeks
    [19:18] <threecb> the pint glass holds the head much better than the goblet.
    [19:19] <studentofbeer> i shoulda tried the pint glass
    [19:19] <threecb> nose was MUCH more intense in the goblet.
    [19:19] <studentofbeer> put 2 of these in an imperial pint
    [19:19] <studentofbeer> thats good to know then
    [19:20] <studentofbeer> i still think its interesting that SN decided to make an IPA for their winter beer
    [19:20] <{Tweek}> still gone by the end though
    [19:20] <studentofbeer> seems counter to what most do
    [19:20] <threecb> the nose on the pint is sweet, like candy.
    [19:20] <{Tweek}> I think it is the right thing, little more alc, little more hops. makes the nights not so cold
    [19:20] <toofargone> I've only had the ipa twice
    [19:20] <{Tweek}> aye, like candied fruit
    [19:21] <studentofbeer> yeah i agree, it's just sorta 360 from something like an old ale or something, going the more malty route
    [19:21] <threecb> this is a nice way to compare glassware. good beer for it.
    [19:21] <{Tweek}> yea, but they are american brewers
    [19:21] <Osh> 12the IPA is mybenchmark for the style
    [19:21] <studentofbeer> CA brewers even
    [19:21] <{Tweek}> american styles tend to be more hoppy
    [19:21] <toofargone> CA brewwers esp
    [19:21] <{Tweek}> true
    [19:21] <threecb> I like the idea of an IPA for a winter. It breaks up all of the sameness of winter brews.
    [19:22] <{Tweek}> Im bummed
    [19:22] <{Tweek}> seems my town was on the do not distribute holiday brews to list
    [19:22] <{Tweek}> I havent tried anything new
    [19:22] <toofargone> I wish I could get my hands on some SNIPA
    [19:22] <threecb> The first time I had this, years ago, was when the winter brew craze was spiced beers.
    [19:23] <studentofbeer> yeah i havent really had any either tweek. usually im a fiend for them, but havent been to a bevmo or plumpjack
    The more you disapprove the more fun it is for me.

    [19:23] <threecb> A friend brought it over and I was thinking to myself "oh, great, another gingerbread in a bottle"
    [19:23] <studentofbeer> i was going to suggest we do anchor's winter beer
    [19:23] <studentofbeer> hehehe
    [19:23] <toofargone> thats why I really like SNCA tho, not tooooo much spice
    [19:23] <threecb> boy was I surprised!
    [19:24] <{Tweek}> I still need to try the OSA
    [19:24] <studentofbeer> i didnt love it this year
    [19:24] <Teej> I don't care much for "spiced" beers. Renegade Red Ale is on a very short list of "beers I couldn't stand to finish"
    [19:24] <threecb> I haven't had this years OSA. I'm in the "I liked the 04" camp.
    [19:24] <Osh> 12Anchors winter is all over the place from year to year
    [19:24] <{Tweek}> how was teh pine content? years where there is too much I cant take it
    [19:24] <toofargone> sad to say, i haven't been loving any anchors for the last several years
    [19:24] <{Tweek}> last year was ok
    [19:25] <{Tweek}> year before was ass
    [19:25] <studentofbeer> i liked last years
    [19:25] <studentofbeer> yeah
    [19:25] <{Tweek}> imo
    [19:25] <studentofbeer> this one reminds me more of the 2003
    [19:25] <studentofbeer> so i wouldnt buy a 6er if i were you
    [19:25] <{Tweek}> ugh
    [19:25] <{Tweek}> ok, ill get a single
    [19:25] <threecb> Yards, in Philly did a Spruce Ale based on a brown/dark mild. I had it at the brewery fresh and it was very nice.
    [19:25] <studentofbeer> the nose to me was sooo sweet--like candy corn
    [19:25] * beermonkey has joined #beer
    [19:25] <studentofbeer> spruce ale is nice. alaskan does an alright one
    [19:26] <{Tweek}> hi beermonkey
    [19:26] <studentofbeer> i like spruce, heather etc.
    [19:26] <studentofbeer> hey beermonkey

    [19:26] <Osh> 12hey
    [19:26] <{Tweek}> havent had the alaskan spruce
    [19:26] <beermonkey> opps
    [19:26] <toofargone> howdy
    [19:26] <{Tweek}> ill have to pick that one up
    [19:26] <threecb> I'll have to track down a single of the OSA.
    [19:26] <studentofbeer> its not amazing but i think its ok if you are into the spruce flavor
    [19:26] <studentofbeer> yeah
    [19:26] <Osh> 12no Alaskan here, have to make a trade
    [19:27] <{Tweek}> where are you osh?
    The more you disapprove the more fun it is for me.

    [19:27] <threecb> You can read about the Yards one on their site. they used a whole babay spruce tree during the boil.

    [19:27] <toofargone> oh my god a tree beer?

    [19:29] <threecb> hey beermonkey, did you have a SNCA to sample?
    [19:29] <Osh> 12cold---warm, it's all good
    [19:29] <threecb> right on, osh
    [19:29] <{Tweek}> ya, since we have all given our 3 page tasting notes it is your turn
    [19:29] <{Tweek}> please, make it dramatic and profound
    [19:30] <{Tweek}> heh
    [19:30] <Osh> 12just don't slur your words
    [19:30] <beermonkey> no didn't make it to store, forgot that I was having people over for dinner, watched lost and made lasagna
    [19:30] <threecb> I like this applet, btw. Thanks for making it available.
    [19:30] <studentofbeer> getting more malty now that the hops have probably destroyed my taste buds
    [19:30] <studentofbeer> np, glad we could get something to work
    [19:30] <threecb> Lost *was* a repeat, right?!?
    [19:30] <{Tweek}> no lost talk
    [19:31] <studentofbeer> heh yeah
    [19:31] * Teej prefers "real irc". I have yet to see a java applet I didn't hate.
    [19:31] <toofargone> yeah thanks for the applet
    [19:31] <{Tweek}> I am watching it on dvd
    [19:31] <{Tweek}> talking lost in here gets you in trouble
    [19:31] <{Tweek}>
    [19:31] <studentofbeer> ok, no lost talk.
    [19:31] <studentofbeer> i understand
    [19:31] <threecb> mums the word
    [19:31] <beermonkey> yeah repeat, but I drank and talked through it last time
    [19:31] <Teej> I might have watched "lost" if it didn't come out a coupla years after survivor which I'd rather put a dull spoon through my temples than watch.
    [19:32] <{Tweek}> hehe
    [19:32] <Osh> 12tv sucks in general
    [19:32] <toofargone> mostly
    [19:32] <{Tweek}> I love the lingering on the bitter of this beer. there long after its in the belly
    [19:33] <studentofbeer> yeah, it is amazing.
    [19:33] <Teej> There's a variety of stuff I enjoy. The CSIs and L&Os get watched here...along with Battlestar Galactica & the Stargates...a few others.
    [19:33] <threecb> yeah, your mouth keeps thinking about it for quite awhile.
    [19:33] <studentofbeer> i hear ya teej--L&O+battlestar and lost ,and thats it
    [19:33] <threecb> ooh, a SciFi network fanboy!
    [19:33] <Osh> 12the carmel corn I'm having is really having a effect on the hops. LOL
    [19:33] <Teej> No, that's the extent of my scifi watching. Never got into their other stuff.

    [19:38] <fretlessman71> Well, just for now... I still have a 2004 laying around that I'll drink while looking over the tasting notes at another time.
    [19:38] <{Tweek}> nice
    [19:38] <fretlessman71> But I have no time to drink right now...
    [19:38] <{Tweek}> no time to drink?
    [19:38] <{Tweek}> sounds like a crisis?
    [19:38] <fretlessman71> Nope - playing bass.
    [19:38] <{Tweek}> ow
    [19:39] <Osh> 12just found out from my son that the Firken uptown here has the Sami Klaus on tap
    [19:39] <fretlessman71> I try not to do both at the same time - bad mix.
    [19:39] * toofargone has quit IRC (Client exited )
    [19:39] <{Tweek}> right, cause rock stars never mix
    [19:39] <fretlessman71> You're talking about HERMS?
    [19:39] <threecb> You'll find that the 04 is pretty different than the notes for the 05.
    [19:39] <fretlessman71> So what did you notice between the two?
    [19:39] * HogieWan has left #beer
    [19:40] <fretlessman71> (Man, what's up? I show up and two people bail...)
    [19:40] <{Tweek}> heh
    [19:40] <threecb> we didn't have any 04 tonight, but student and I both felt that they mellowed, hopwise.
    [19:40] * toofargone has joined #beer
    [19:40] <{Tweek}> see its just hogie
    [19:40] <fretlessman71> This would make sense...
    [19:40] <{Tweek}> I wasnt going to say anything but I think he hates you
    [19:40] <{Tweek}> lol
    [19:40] <{Tweek}> Im just jokin
    [19:40] <threecb> still solid beers though.
    [19:40] <fretlessman71> Not surprised... the beer he sent me was poisoned...
    [19:41] <fretlessman71> JK!
    [19:41] <{Tweek}> hehe
    [19:41] <Osh> 12so I'm tasting a Victory Hop Wallop, WOW what a diference
    [19:41] <toofargone> dang firefox crashes
    [19:41] <fretlessman71> Actually, they were delicious...
    [19:41] <{Tweek}> so wait, you guys are saying that last years was more hoppy?
    [19:41] <{Tweek}> im not remembering it that way
    [19:41] <threecb> No, the hops diminished greatly.
    [19:41] <toofargone> do you like it Osh?
    [19:42] <{Tweek}> you lost me 3
    [19:42] <{Tweek}> with age you mean?
    [19:42] <Osh> 12not bad, but not SNCA
    [19:42] <fretlessman71> I think they're talking about the effects of age on the hop character and profile...
    [19:42] <threecb> I thought last years was on par with past years, but the one I had a couple of weeks ago was mellowed and malty.
    [19:42] <fretlessman71> It's supposed to mellow a bit, right?
    [19:42] <{Tweek}> the 04 you had?
    [19:42] <Osh> 12no fruit at all
    [19:42] <{Tweek}> sorry if I am being slow here
    [19:42] <threecb> not tonight
    [19:43] <threecb> fret's right.
    [19:43] <{Tweek}> yeah, I wouldnt imagine that these would age out and still be so dominate in a year
    [19:44] <toofargone> anybody gotta pee?
    [19:44] <threecb> but I think that the mellowing made it more of a west-coast interpretation of a stock ale.
    [19:44] <threecb> ;-)
    [19:44] <{Tweek}> I could see that
    [19:44] <{Tweek}> speaking of
    [19:44] <{Tweek}> you guys ever try north coast old stock?
    [19:45] <fretlessman71> heard of it..
    [19:45] <toofargone> nope
    [19:45] <studentofbeer> i always think of stock ales even darker
    [19:45] <{Tweek}> I like it
    [19:45] <studentofbeer> but no, never tried that
    [19:45] <threecb> I dig that beer. I pretty much have liked everything that I've had from NC
    [19:45] <{Tweek}> yea
    [19:45] <{Tweek}> cept the acme line
    [19:45] <{Tweek}> dont like any of those
    [19:45] <Osh> 12not here, get a lot of stuff but not that
    [19:45] <threecb> don't get the acme line out here.
    [19:45] <{Tweek}> but ol ras is solid
    [19:45] <studentofbeer> indeed
    [19:45] <{Tweek}> had it on tap last time I was there
    [19:46] <threecb> my wife loves Pranqster
    [19:46] <{Tweek}> all I can say is w00t!
    The more you disapprove the more fun it is for me.

    [19:46] <studentofbeer> i brought back a stock ale from london that i loved
    [19:46] <fretlessman71> What's wrong with the Acme line? I like the logos...
    [19:46] <studentofbeer> pranquster, eh to me.
    [19:46] <{Tweek}> Fret: nothing is wrong with it.
    [19:46] <{Tweek}> just nothing is right with it
    [19:46] <threecb> ouch
    [19:47] <fretlessman71> Okay - so it's pedestrian. Better than BMC?
    [19:47] <{Tweek}> it is clean, but it pretty much stops there
    [19:47] <{Tweek}> yes
    [19:47] <toofargone> yeah fret bummer how the best logos don't always have the best beer
    [19:47] <fretlessman71> Judging a book by its cover, I'm sure...
    [19:47] <{Tweek}> but since I dont ever drink bmc, they are never in my radar of comparison
    [19:47] <fretlessman71> My wife REALLY likes the logos.
    [19:47] <fretlessman71> She's a big "classic pinup girl poster" fan.
    [19:48] <{Tweek}> well tell her old ras is from the same brewers
    [19:48] <{Tweek}> that is what she should be drinkin!
    [19:48] <fretlessman71> Well, if she actually liked beer, I'd tell her that.... right now the only beer she's asked to have some of is New Glarus Belgian Red.
    [19:48] <studentofbeer> TJs used to sell 4 old ras for $6, i loved that
    [19:48] <{Tweek}> Im going to Rogue in a little bit
    [19:48] <studentofbeer> in oregon?
    [19:48] <{Tweek}> you give her some of that triple wheat I sent ya?
    [19:48] <{Tweek}> ya
    [19:49] <toofargone> we'll I'm out of SNCA and back to a finish of of the PA
    [19:50] <fretlessman71> She got a noseful of it - her eyebrows went up, and said it smelled like a lemony loaf of wheat bread. Not too bad, eh?
    [19:50] <{Tweek}> hehe
    [19:50] <threecb> The sweetness in the nose of the Celebration has diminished as it warms in the pint glass. Totally different than the goblet. crazy.
    [19:50] <threecb> Triple wheat, huh?
    [19:50] <{Tweek}> I still get a sweet pretty much till empty
    [19:50] <{Tweek}> yea, from marin
    [19:51] <fretlessman71> Toofargone - you comparing Celeb to Pale ale tonight?
    [19:51] <{Tweek}> great beer if you like that sort of thing
    [19:51] <threecb> It's still there --the sweetness-- just less so as I get deeper into the pint.
    [19:52] <{Tweek}> as it warms I get much more cereal qualities off the nose
    [19:52] <fretlessman71> Tweek, I never got to thank you for introducing me to the concept of a Wheat Wine... so thanks!
    [19:52] <{Tweek}> my pleasure Fret
    [19:52] <toofargone> yeah but its not a fair comparison
    [19:52] <fretlessman71> And mine! ;-)
    [19:52] <{Tweek}>
    [19:52] <{Tweek}> smells like malt

    [20:02] <{Tweek}> it starts to bug you after a while about paying
    [20:02] <fretlessman71> I installed it; it was just such a hassle getting on, and I didn't like the font - it did funny things to my eyes.
    [20:02] <studentofbeer> i just finally got a domain for our wedding, figured i could put something up so peeps could get on
    [20:02] <studentofbeer> yeah
    [20:03] <{Tweek}> but I have been using it for years without
    [20:03] <fretlessman71> And this is much simpler for me.
    The more you disapprove the more fun it is for me.

    Damn! I logged on and was an hour or so early. Went and sat down to watch the tube for awhile and fell asleep in my chair! I guess that whats happens to you when you get old like me. (48)
    I'm sorry I missed it. I'll be hitting a holiday tasting this evening at RFD to atone for my sin.
