A surprisingly impressive offering from North Park Beer Co. inspired by the tiki rum drink, the Painkiller. The imperial Berliner Weisse smells fruity, sweet and tart. Flavor is tart with pineapple and coconut. Tastes so…fresh.
A 6.5% IPA that poured not-so hazy. Light body, mild bitterness with dry finish.

An 11% ABV pastry stout from Grimm of New York. Can was dated, but held up pretty well. Had to warm up before I noticed cherry flavor. Mostly flavors of dark chocolate, sweet with a roasty, somewhat bitter, finish. Good, but it ain’t no Cocosauras Rex.

The word Abnormal makes think of the movie Young Frankenstein. Specifically, when Dr. Frankenstein/Frokensteen is asking Igor about the brain he was sent to retrieve, Igor replies “it’s Abby something.. “. “Abby? Abby who?” “Abby….Normal. Yes, that’s it. Abby Normal.” Oh yeah…beer. The beer is good. The nose is sweet…a mix of guava, citrus, pineapple, […]
Quite enjoyable. Pale malt body with pleasant hop flavors, solf mouth-feel and mild bitterness. From the fine folks at Pottland, OR’s, Hopworks Urban Brewery.
I enjoyed this 7.2% ABV IPA from Pizza Port Brewing. Grassy citrus notes up front, pale malt body with pleasing lingering bitterness on the finish, urging me to take another sip… then it was gone.
An 11% ABV pastry stout from Wild Barrel. Sweet, smooth and sticky all the way through. Like a double helping of super fudge ice cream topping on a bite of mocha ice cream. Need to counter the on set of diabetes with…hmmm.
