    It's like a Stella on roids 7.2 ABV and these when ice cold go down smooth.

    Reminds me about one night when I was cranking out reports and other work [email protected] while having a few brews. I always have a variety in my fridge, alternating the crafts with my daily drivers. Well I had already had a few by 10pm and not paying attention I grabbed a Shmaltz He'Brew Jewbelation Reborn 17%. It was in a variety pack I had bought and I had no idea that it was a 17%.

    Long story short, finished it, I quit working, hit the fridge, and the bed soon after drinking it.

    After a long week, having 3-4 8+'s, on a Friday, will wipe you out pretty fast. That's why I try to stick with just 2.

    What's with the plunger?
  • mrbironmrbiron Posts: 4,848
    I think @Malbec told me about the “syringe technique” for stouts a couple years ago, in this thread, and i tend to do it to most. I pull a small amount of up into the syringe and then inject it back into the beer at a fast rate. It causes some sort of chemical reaction which releases nitrogen creating a much creamier beer.

    Or......i could have made this all up during a bad quualude hit...... ;)

    Check these guys out.

    With the stouts, the syringe method knocks some of the CO2 out of suspension making it closer to a mix gas, making it a bit flatter. Like a draft beer.

    Now if Frederique found some NOS Rorer714's or Lemmons, there would be an extra step, he wouldn't mainline.
    He would draw 1 or 2 cc's into the syringe and ...um... think suppository.

    Ah, 714's, those were the days.

    Love this thread. I currently have 368 different brews under my belt. I’m a huge stout/porter fan myself. Currently one of my favorite local breweries is Hardywood. I’m a Family Tree member so all the new brews being released I’m the first to try them. Currently have about 57-750 ml bottles waiting to be poured so anyone in the area wanna stop by let me know.

    Very short season, but oh so good. Not too spicy/pumpkiny (probably not actually a word) but very nice. Big, big alchol content at 8.2% though. Drink at your own risk.
