I've had that and you are correct it's quite delicious, I'm quite found of the Nitro Oaty Stout Founders has on tap, and Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout will always be a favorite of mine.

Yeah their quality has greatly diminished since then, but I've heard the tap room is still locally owned and the beer there is still brewed by the same people.
For those who care about such things, Goose Island is owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev (headquartered in Belgium).

I get a 30 pack of this orgasm in a can for $19.99 at the liquor store in my backyard. That may sound like a bit much for you fancy continental USA folks, but up here in Alaska, this is the deal of all deals. Smooth like a glass of water. Only takes a dozen or so to stir up a decent buzz.

Founders never disappoints, between that and Shorts Huma Lupa i always know I can find an outstanding IPA.
So I haven't been commenting much lately on the blog posts (too many trolls/douchebags for my taste), but I did want to let MG know that I had a Founder's Centennial from the tap today... and it was effin' tasty... I mean, just outstanding.

"IPA?" I said?
"Double?" I said, louder.
So I bought two.
And didn't finish either.
If you've ever home-brewed (or said to yourself, "Self? I should home-brew!"), you're probably familiar with the kit-clones you can buy. "Sierra Nevada Clone" or "Blue Moon Clone" (but, really, Blue Moon? Get a palate, please.). This Boatswain Double IPA tastes like someone bought a Bass Ale clone and threw a couple extra handfuls of hops into their 5-gallon bucket. It's just so very ... bad. And I don't mind Bass, really. In fact, I've gotten quite blotto on it. But this is just not good.

I could brag that one of my old roommates worked at the largest liquor store in New Jersey and all the awesome beers he brought home but instead I'll talk about the worst I ever drank:
This is Evil Eye Malt Liquor by the Melanie Brewing Company, also known for the appropriately titled "Beer 30 Ice" that comes only in cheap 30 packs. I am fairly certain it is a government front with the purpose to kill poor people. The first thing you should know about Evil Eye is that it puts the "liquor" in malt liquor. It is 10% abv, which is stronger than many wines. I once saw a grown man cry after drinking this vile brew. I have seen another man do a shot of his own urine without being any prompting to do so. When I first tried it my response (after gagging) was that this did not taste human. Beer advocate gave it a rating of 46/100 which is a bit generous in my opinion but I challenge somebody to find a lower rated "beer". I have a high tolerance for alcohol and it takes about a 12 pack to get me good and drunk. I am not ashamed to admit that I got a good buzz off a single 40 of this stuff but it is not fit for human consumption.

Oh and I am also very familiar with Natty Light from college.
