The black IPA turned out much better (IMO). Really nice roasty taste with a bit of bitter chocolate in the taste. I might try adding some coffee for the next one. Probably fine-tuning the hops as well, but over all this turned out really well. There's definitely a big difference in the taste between my first tasting soon after bottling it and now after, hmm, six or so weeks.

We just booked a trip out to washington and oregon and didn't even know about the festival. It just happens to fall during the time we were planning on being in portland! This is fantastic.

It turned out quite nice, at least to my liking. I'll bring a bottle or two with me to Miami.
Spent the weekend in Tallinn. Only managed to try about 25 new beers. Lots of porters and stouts and some double/triple IPAs. I've really grown to love coffee porters and luckily that seems to be a trend on the rise in Estonia.

Screw that awful pith like atringent harsh bitterness, hop juice and drinkability FTW!

Sounds like your giant bag of beer made it home in one piece then?

Hopefully they all like porter and saison
