    I've got them in my garden. They have an incredibly soft texture and almost look unripe. They do taste a bit like pineapple.

    Horus "Goshawk's Territory"

    "Goshawk's Territory" is a big 13.6% imperial stout. It has two varieties of three different adjuncts. So, six adjuncts in all. This stout is aged on Butte and Peerless almonds, Ghanaian and Peruvian cacao nibs, & Brazilian and Guatemalan coffee beans.
    This stout was also boiled for over five hours to achieve a very thick, viscous base for these adjuncts. The result is a stout with a big chocolate aroma, with both milk and dark chocolate throughout. It finishes with almonds, marshmallow, cocoa, distinct sweetness, and light to medium roast from the coffees.

    This beer is packaged in 650 ml bottles. The original artwork was done by the talented Spring Whitaker.

    $25/ea... $29.14 w/EB fees and taxes.

    Somehow hit for the Goshawk’s drop, but need help retrieving bevs. I got my dates messed up and have guests over that weekend. Eventbrite’s system lets you edit the name on the order. If anyone else is going I can provide ty beers and a label, or I’ll be in LA the week after and could meet up if you’re out that way!

    I got a can of Osprey's Fresh Catch (Season Two) yesterday. Says it was made in Wisconsin but the "brewery" is just a barrel house in California. What's up with that?

    edit: Found my answer...

    Wait there is a more expensive non BA stout!!??? I like the few beers I've had. Wish he had a taproom/more time for slinging releases out since the warehouse is so close to me.

    Wow, for some reason that passed my mind because I guess I expected it to BA. I am sure your right. Any idea on why his releases are so narrow? I have yet to ask him myself.

    narrow, how do you mean? limited? well i know hes a 1 man show, and a lot of the releases go to his club first. theres a really good pod cast where he goes into detail at the full pint, its worth a listen if your interested in Horus
