    Stone 12yr anniversary bitter chocolate oatmeal stout

    1st let me say, damn this is the best chocolate stout I've ever had. It is like drinking bakers chocolate with hops, the finish is long and bitter like a chocolate bar, it's creamy, smooth, and sweet. Everything about this beer is phenomenal. :dr

    Surgery time, yikes!

    Brent and I have talked about my frustration with the Military Medical system. Well I finally saw a new Doc today and he's scheduling me for surgery. I have a jacked up right knee and apparently they are going to go in and shave under my patella (knee cap) and then do a patella relocation...

    EO #21

    This is a new value blend mild cigar from United Tobacco aka EO aka 601. It is comprised of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Panamanian tobacco. All long filler. It starts out spicy like a 601 black, goes to a smooth mild smoke with tons of smoke and ends very nice as well. A toro costs about $3.50...

    A nice pre birthday smoke gone wrong!

    Ugh. :mad: Life has been pretty hectic lately and I decided today after I got off from working at the shop that I wanted to relax and wind down and have a nice pre birthday smoke (my birthday is not technically until 8/29) so I decided to pour myself a few fingers of Ron Anejo Pompero...

    Drive it like you stole it?

    Is exactly what this 19 yr old kid was doing when he hit my Mom's new Liberty in his rental Cobalt and totaled her car. She just got out of the hospital 2 weeks ago and had to be flown out via Helo. She was OK, just banged up - but given her recent medical problems - they did not want to...

    La Riqueza Belicoso by Pete Johnson

    I picked up a handful of these, 2 Robustos, 2 PC's, and a Belicoso. A nice band, I'd say. Simplistic, yet aesthetically pleasing. Prelight draw: Not a lot here, a faint taste of spice, nice draw - not a ton of flavors though. 1/3: Both sweet and strong tobacco, faint spice. Burn is...

    Using a rub

    I received a nice rub from those scoundrels the CFRH, I was wondering if I rub it on steak do I then refrigerate it, or do I just slap it on the grill? Also, how much do I use? Do I coat the whole steak? Thanks!

    Trader Vic's

    I had the best rib eye I've ever tasted at Trader Vic's last night. You could cut the meat with a fork. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned and just wonderful. Danielle had the duck with moo-shoo pancakes and plum sauce. They brought her a whole duck and even took it off the bones for her...

    Lagavulin Scotch 16 Year

    I bought a bottle today off a recommendation from a stranger at BevMO. He told me I won't find a better scotch for less than $120. He was right. This is by far the best scotch I've had. It's rich and smoky with a hint of sweetness and floral tastes and smell. I will keep this for occasions...

    VinoTemp Humidity Issue

    Long story short we got hit with a heat wave this weekend (85+) and I decided to go in and plug my drain hole on the Vino. I used silicon/caulking from my glue gun and then covered the silicon with tape tightly. I checked all my fans to make sure they were up 2 par. I have 1.5 lbs of wet...

    Davidoff Millenium Blend - Petite Corona

    I picked up a couple of these today, they're my 1st Davidoff's I smoked (I have a few I bought, but have not smoked). Tonight I decided to put the fire too one and my thoughts were the prelight draw was very sweet, like carmel and honey. The rest of the smoke was sweet and cedary with a hint...
