Make sure you take good bath before going to bed tonight. Several baths, may be in order. That's what you get for pushing buttons that say do not push.

NOT, she is 17. She does not learn lessons that easily. She is a bit hard headed. I have no idea where she gets it from.

Hi folks, mulled cider is my thing, ladding some from the pot on the fire place, and making sure to refill the pot while waiting for the cider to cool down to drinking temp.

Kibby is still a smelly Kibby. I don't think she will ever get all the dragon poop smell gone.

Here's the page from the brewery:
http://newhollandbrew.com/beer/mains...-barrel-stout/
As far as I'm concerned, it's great. I don't like the price, though. Because of its alcohol content (10% ABV), it's about $16 per 4 pack, which is right up there with paying for a "regular" premium beer in a bar. But it's a myriad of flavors, all rolled into one bottle. Not typical of a lot of craft beers, it's not overpowering in any one flavor, therefore it's not gained the popularity with the "in crowd" of beer aficionados who want a stronger-tasting beer. This one hides its char, oak, and ABV content with a smooth, hint-of-bourbon sweetness that rocks my socks off.

So yes I've tried it and like it.

I'd also suggest Prichard's Sweet Lucy, Sweet Lucy Cream, and Prichard's Fudge Brownie Cream Liqueur. The only one that's not on the website is the Fudge Brownie Cream Liqueur. So you'll have to trust me, it's fan-freaking-tastic!
