    maybe its supposed to be a jizz rag after they drop 15 beers on us


    ...... and what if each beer is a different barrel treatment of hunapuh and then the 15th bottle is a blend of them all? (aged in malort barrels)

    Although a rum barrel aged licorice beer definitely sounds like the kind of "fuck you" that Wakefield would have given us. Except for $50, instead of $30.

    I don't see it as such. Without trying it, I figure it is this round's [insert name of your least favorite beer from previous rounds]. Imagine if they had actually put that shitty tequila taco beer in a bottle for us.

    Honestly, if I didn't have to be careful of consuming different types of licorice additives (some trigger migraines) I would be way more excited about this. Some are found in spiced rum and this isn't that weird of a flavor if you think of it. It's trying to mimic blackstrap molasses. Not trying to be an apologist for the program. There is always a flavor I rank fifth as well, but people are treating this bottle as the straw that broke the camel's back and I am betting it works better than you think.

    After the nice surprise of how great dioscorides was I'll withhold judgement on this one.

    Yeah, it's probably a decent beer at the least. I'm more disappointed in not getting a glass than anything.

    Really wish my die hard steelers fan uncle liked beer instead of peligrino.

    The bottle opener is really nice, I also like the sticker. Who really needs more fucking glassware?

    It is a slightly thicker version of a standard bar opener but whoever stamped it did a bad job. You can see the machine marks around El Catador and at least on the 3 I picked up it's quite sharp around the edges. Also I thought bar towels were lint free and or micro fiber but I could be wrong there. Luckily I signed up for beer.

    For someone who isn't on Facebook, I really wish they told you *what* it was vs. just a pickup notification.

    Were the five bottles from the last round Trousseau, BA WarmerWinterWinterWarmer, Dioscorides (sp?), DB Huna, and DB Bolita?
