Bonus Beer Contest: We Have a Winner! WTF?



In yesterday's "After-SMaSH" post I offered bonus points to anyone who could name the beer in the foreground of the posted picture.
~J offered "WTF is that?"

Winnah!


It was a bottle of Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot. I snagged the last two at Gomers in Parkville last Saturday. WTF is a malty +7% concoction that RateBeer places in the American Strong Ale category:
Not a style, per se, but the only logical category to incorporate the plethora of strong, stylistically vague beers coming from American micros these days. Some are related to English Strong Ales, but with more hop, while others are ultra-strong variants on the IPA theme. But no matter how varied their origins or characters might be, all are intense, potent, with generous quantities of hops and malt.

KC Beer Blog did an excellent review of this brew last February.

So Jay, tell us, what does ~J win?

Choice of any one of the following beers to be delivered at ~J's specified location.



But Wait! I just remembered I have a bottle of this stuff. It's kind of old though, so I don't know if ~J would be interested.

I think that you should just throw together that tasting we were talking about while enjoying the Amarillo Single Hop and a Nemesis.
