In other news:
I'm a bit sluggish today. We (Scott, Daryl and myself) celebrated the holidays by indulging in 3 years (2014, 2015 and 2016) of Goose Island Brewing's Bourbon County Stout last night. 2014 has aged quite wonderfully since last year. It has lost a considerable amount of sweetness and mellowed nicely. 2015 has not changed much since last year. I guess Goose Island had to recall a number of batches from last year's release due to a bacterial problem which resulted in off flavors (thankfully, I did not procure any of the "bad" bottles"). They decided to flash pasteurize this year's release and I have yet to find out if that will limit the beer's ability to age, or not. It would be a shame if it did as collecting these bottles to age is 90% of the fun. At any rate, it doesn't take much of a 14% brew to get your attention and I've been dragging my feet a bit today.
