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.
…at home; and who doesn’t want some fun, mandatory or not. The beer, a nice 9.3% double IPA from the fine folks at Hess Brewings. Piney and citrusy nose, and the flavor doesn’t disappoint. Yum.
Quite happy with this 6.5% ABV IPA from the fine folks at Brouwerij West. Pale malt body allows nice hop flavors to take front stage. Juicy orange/citrus forward, with mild piney and resinous notes on the finish. Can is a bit old
An 8% ABV collaboration beer from Waunakee, Wisconsin’s Untitled Art and Chicago’s Cruz Blanca Brewery. The smell makes me think Hershey’s chocolate syrup over the sweet malty nose of a robust porter…quite sweet. Likely needs to warm up a bit, as not much going on at first. Not sweet, but a more balanced chocolatey porter […]
A decent NE IPA offering from Fresno’s Full Circle Brewing Co. Nice citrus notes, soft mouth feel and low bitterness all wrapped up in 6.6% ABV solution. My first Full Circle beer. I need to look into their other offerings.
Going deep into the ‘ol beer drawer. Piney and resinous, medium malt body with good lingering hop bitterness. Quite impressed by how well this has held up. I would have thought it would be more barleywine-ish, with softening hop profiles. Can time-stamped 6-Years Down, 11/01/18, so upwards of 9.3 years in dog beers.
Big ‘ol can-o-beer.
Working through the “shelter in place” stock, and found this can in there beer drawer. It was cold out of the drawer, but it’s like I took a warm session IPA and poured over ice to get it cold, and then let the ice melt. Not necessarily bad, but seems a bit watered down. It […]
…at home. Found what appears to be my last one in the back of da fridge…yay beer!
Nice piney and resinous nose, unfortunately the flavor doesn’t follow thru. A bit watery. Could be that I chose poorly to try after a full flavored, 7.5% ABV, west-coast IPA. I really should have a drinking plan establish before I start, instead of fumbling through it as I do. But…at 4% ABV, you can almost […]
