Let's get Sirius

I stumbled across five bottles of Sirius from Lagunitas Brewing Co. way in the back of my cellar while looking for the Ommegeddon. I must have picked up a sixpack when it first came out in Texas, drank a bottle and then the sixpack got lost in the cellar and forgotten about. Fortunately, its about 7.5%, so it could stand a little aging. Basically, it tasted like a creamy barley wine. It's a little sweet and the higher alcohol was definitely noticeable, but the creamy mouthfeel softened the hop bitterness and kept the alcohol from being too biting. I'll have to make sure the remaining four bottles don't get lost again.
