Yes, I used two colons in the header. Sometimes the established format for a headline can back me into a corner, but I won’t let that get in the way of a “Breakin’ 2” reference.

Beer 161: Toppling Goliath BA Chainsmoker
Notes: This wasn’t tapped until 5:30 p.m. and required two tickets. Worth the wait, worth the tickets. There was a huge line building up, but thankfully the beer flowed quickly. It smelled great, with hints of chocolate and vanilla.
Beer 162: Van Houzen Three Toed Dog
Notes: Three grains, a three-step mash and a three-step hop schedule. It was creamy, with a bit of citrus.
Beer 163: Millstream Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Aged Raspberry Latte Stout.
Notes: The bourbon flavor balanced well with the sweetness of the raspberry. My notes were “strong as shit.” I meant it as a compliment.
Beer 164: Lion Bridge Oktobot 3000
Notes: I probably should have alternated between stronger beers and weaker beers, instead of saving them all for the end of the day. The Oktobot is also whiskey barrel aged, giving it a more robust taste and body than a usual marzen.
Beer 165: Worth Oktoberfest
Notes: Not much to say here, a tasty Oktoberfest, and as the day wore on, my not taking got less and less clear.
Beer 166: Broad Street Brewing 120 Shilling
Notes: Another barrel aged beer, this one a Scotch Ale. At this point, I’m drawing a complete blank. Here’s my overall impression:
I’m not saying it was good or bad, I just don’t remember and seem to have stopped typing notes at that point.
