In 2012 we went to a beer festival in the neighboring town. DuClaw was one of the vendors there with a raspberry stout that I've never forgotten. When jfields asked me about my previous post (DuClaw 865cc) I wandered over to their website to find some stats about it, and while I was there I searched through their product line and found the Naked Fish that I had enjoyed at the festival years ago. I also found a beer locator on their website, and discovered a reseller that had Naked Fish in stock that was only an hour out of the way for the return home from Thanksgiving in Cleveland. They had 5 six packs remaining, and we bought them out. The beer has lost a little of its carbonation in the interim, but the flavors are still just as I remember. It was well worth the detour!
Tall Paul sent me this, maybe close to a year ago, maybe more...didn't wrote down the date. It was a good BA stout:
Terrapin Moo-Tella. Pretty damn good! Liked the nutty chocolate profile. Thought it was going to be really sweet, but wasn't overly. More than one might be too much though.
I had to buy some Celebration to stock the fridge.
Another spoil from the trek to Ohio. Similar to Sweet Baby Jesus that's readily available in Virginia, but with the addition of espresso. Dee-lish!
John sent me this, it was a decent porter...didn't detect much of the chocolate:

Drank this last night courtesy of Tom. Very black and twice as bitter. I liked it.
Breakfast of Cahmpions!
Never tried that Mocha Merlin, how was it?
It's good, but personally I prefer regular Velvet Merlin. The coffee comes through loud and clear, but the body is a bit thinner and less roasty chocolate than I remember from VM.
How did you like it? I picked up some today.
I like it more than Sweet Baby Jesus. More body and less residual sugar, but still has that pronounced nutty finish I really enjoy.

Been on a Karl Strauss kick as of late, and it's a good one!
