Treat & Trick

On Halloween I had The Lost Abbey's Ten Commandments. I will have another post on this with pictures, but this was a massive, delicious, approachable beer. I drank it over nearly four hours, and it got better as the evening progressed.

Also on Halloween I picked up a six-pack of Firestone's Union Jack, but I did not get to really drink one until last night. I loved this beer last spring. The beer I had last night tasted old. The freshness was gone and it had old-IPA flavor. Old-IPA is a hard flavor to describe, but I know it when I taste it. Last spring it was one of my favorite beers of the year, last night it was a drain pour. I will post whether the remaining beers from the six-pack of the same "old-IPA" affliction.
