Karl Strauss Peanut Butter Cup Porter. Fantastic beer. I am glad they did not create a 12% alcohol imperial stout for this peanut butter cup beer. It is a low under 6% abv porter and way better than Belching Beaver's Peanut Butter Stout. No disrespect to Belching Beaver though. I like them also. You definitely need to try this seasonal beer from Karl Strauss.

I don't know what this is or what it tastes like but that name a epic.

Interesting. This brewery is a few miles from my house, but this is first time I've seen someone from outside the local area mention it. The Base Jumper is an IPA, so it's not my cup of tea, but almost all of their beers have been excellent in my opinion.
Earlier this week:
Lawson's Sip of Sunshine
Lawson's Super Session #2

Both good, but not crazy good or anything. I thought the SoS had a bit too much of a green taste for my liking, but did like a lot of the juiciness that was with it.

Today at lunch:
Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout Proprietor's 2015 - very good. I'd heard it was overly sweet, and it was definitely sweet, but I liked the balance between that and the heat. Still hoping to score a bottle (or two) of this.

I'd love to get a taste of some of that. Too bad they didn't produce enough for distribution. I wasn't the biggest fan of Parabola, but think the coffee presence would make me like it more.

I had it after 2 glasses of wine and wish I didn't, and also wish I bought more than 2 bottles after tasting one of them. I first tasted it a few years ago at a release event from a single barrel and it was a bitter coffee bomb (no bourbon flavor or Parabola resemblance, only overly strong tannic coffee). I can say it's blended and smoothed out very well. Amazing beer. People are trading them on the beer websites and in Facebook groups.
