And now for something completely different!

Beer #2:

(Alc. 6.0%)
(Saugatuck - Neopolitan Milk Stout)

Smellin: Very light on the nose with a basic lactose/malt base. Candy/ice cream sweet with a malty undertow. Ever so slightly smokey/woodsy.

Tastin: Malty sweet with an ice creamy character. Smoky wood body.

Overall, it's tasty and interesting. Probably not something to get a 6er of though.



Took a minute, but finally found a decent pic...

I'm done wit dat guy...

And now, what should be the final beer of the night.
(Maybe)
(Definitely the last review though.)

Anyfucky...

Beer #3!

(Alc. 11.0%)
(Dogfish Head - Immort Ale)

Smells: Sweet oak wood and raisin pops up first. Hidden vanilla notes weave throughout. Maple is a distant whisper.

Tastes: Smoky vanilla wood. The body wears raisin sweetness like maple camouflage. Slight bready notes throw hints from the distance.

Overall, sweeter than I prefer, but a nice brew. Do NOT gulp this shit, it's meant for sipping. Or, at least, that's how it tastes to me.



And the best pic I could think of without taking forevah!

Well, it's been two weeks since the last drinkening.
Sounds like it's about time for a new round!

Let's go ahead and get this started!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 8.5%)
(Omnipollo - Nebuchadnezzar)

Smell: Subdued wheat and slightly bitter citrus step forward, while sweet malt lays softly in the background. A pithy touch outlines overall bright notes.

Taste: Gently bitter hops fade into citrus pith. Sun-kissed wheat hovers in the background with a hint of sweetness.

Overall, this seems more like a brew fit for late summer afternoons. Some strength behind a slightly bitter, but pleasant and smooth draw. It keeps me coming back, sip after sip.



(No pic for this one... I mean, how do you find a sexy pic for something named, "Nebuchadnezzar"???)

And then there were two.

Beer #2:

(Alc. 7.0%)
(Against The Grain - 35K)

Smells: Biscuity, sweet malt. Chocolate and coffee notes follow just behind. Then, possibly, faint raisin and banana.

Tastes: Standard chocolate/coffee stout. Sweet malt notes, but not heavy handed. Faint biscuit fills out the bank end.

Overall, there's decent flavor here. Nothing too front-forward. A pleasantly balanced stout. Maybe not a stand-out unique brew, but a solid stout nonetheless.



(Another one with a name that's weird for finding a relative pic.)

Ok, so maybe I never made it to #3 last week.
But I'm gonna start off tonight with that last one I missed.
Then I have a couple others to try out after that... assuming I make it to all 3 this time. :P

So...
Beer #1:

(Alc. 11%)
(Troegs - Mad Elf)

Smell: Honey and faint cinnamon rise up first, holding hands with wine-like cherry notes. A sweet, bready body to back it up. Possible vanilla notes.

Taste: Bread and honey front and center, with tight cherry notes trailing close behind.
Hints of cinnamon and clove follow through. Faint suggestions of cocoa waft by in the end.

Overall, a well thought out holiday brew. Some wine-like qualities brought on by the cherry notes give a unique twist to the flavor profile. Slightly terse presentation, but really quite enjoyable.



And yay!
A pic to match!

Alrighty, on to...

Beer #2:

(Alc. 9%)
(21st Amendment - Not Your Cup of Tea)

Smell: Kinda wonky... um... faint smells all around. Slightly sweet bread off in the distance mingles with... I don't know. Just super faint.

Taste: Smoky charcoal walks up first. Slightly sweet bread peeks in from the sides. Dark chocolate notes in the distance are brought softly forward with black tea elements.

Overall, it doesn't present the black tea ntoes as strongly as I suspected... which may be a good thing. The smoky flavors are front-forward, but not too strong. A fairly pleasant, if somewhat confusing, taste profile and mouthfeel.



And your fitting pic for this brew:

Alright, only a half hour since my last review.
Not bad.

The last brew of the night sounds heavier than the others, but is actually the lightest of the three.
What is it, you ask?
Well, why don't we find out?!?

Beer #3:

(Alc 8.5%)
(Orkney - Skull Splitter)

Smell: Why does this smell like tequila? Soft, hidden raisins among the over-arching, yet subdued, malty sweetness. Mahogany smoke rides the trip all along.

Taste: Subdued raisin wine and figs. Slight smoke in the background hangs out with some cracker notes. Possible coffee notes in the undertow.

Overall, pretty nice for something called "skull splitter", lol. It has that raisin taste I'm not too fond of usually, but it's muted enough here to be pleasant. A "clear" mouth feel that continues down the throat. Good shit.



And again, a lovely skull splittin pic for ya bitchez...

So, it's a busy time of year, eh?
This almost became a second weekend skipped in a row!
Then I realized it works out just fine for a drinkin night.

With that in mind, let's get down to it!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 7.0%)
(Barrier Brewing - Endless Sky)

Smell: Bright and smooth citrus gladly greets me first. Possibly a bit of gentle pepper notes in the body. Slight cracker notes fill out the distant background.

Taste: Creamy and smooth, with a bright pithy body. Subdued bitter notes play with the gentle pepper throughout. Somewhere in the distance, cracker rounds out the rest.

Overall, I'm finding this IPA quite enjoyable. Definitely qualifies for IPA's I'd happily drink again. Good late summer night/autumn brew. It'd probably pair well with chicken and fish... ooh, yeah... this would be perfect to go with fish n chips!


(No hottie pic this time. Not sure what to post and I'd rather meander the 'net instead of spending 20 minutes looking for a pic! Knowhutimean?!?)

I'm done with that first beer.
Time for...

Beer #2:

(7.5%)
(Victory - Black Forest Cake Stout)

Smell: Coffee and dark chocolate present in the front, with an undercurrent of dark cherry. Bready body that carries the dark cherry forward. Sweet raisin whispering in the background.

Taste: Coffee and dark chocolate, spiked with dark cherry. Bready body lumbers in the midground. Smoky flavor and cherry notes stronger on the back end.

Overall, a tasty stout with a lovely flavor profile. Dark cherries add an intriguing layer of complexity. Not my favorite stout, but really pleasant nonetheless. (Smoky flavor builds, gets a little heavy.)


(No easy to find pic that's relatable, so again... no pic. )

Ok... after an extended Twitter idiocy, I'm ready to start on my last new beer of the night.
How about my non-existent audience?
Yeah?

Cool, let's do it.

Beer #3:

(Alc. 14.7%)
(Southern Tier - Montrosus)

Smell: Immediate chocolate cordial, followed by sweet raisin. Somewhat bready body. Laid back bourbon soul.

Taste: Velvety dark chocolate with slight coffee notes. Warm bourbon whisps about the whole experience. Sweet, hidden raisin notes flit about the smoky soul.

Overall, this is a very lovely drink (I'm adverse to calling it a "brew"). She has a thick body and a dark, sweet soul. Best reserved for last drink of the night... probably wonderful in front of a large fireplace, discussing horror stories with friends.



And finally!
A related pic!

Happy New Year!
Or, at least, Happy First Beer Post of the New Year!

Been a couple weeks and I almost didn't get anything tonight.
But then, I was like, fuck that... I'm gettin me some beers!
So, off I went... ended up with a couple IPAs and a big ol stout for the finish.
A bit of a thread in the brews tonight, from fruity to citrus/coffee to bourbon-aged stout.

So, first up, (obviously) is...

Beer #1:

(Alc. 7%)
(Evil Twin - Sumo In A Sidecar)

Smell: Creamy, bitter, citrusy hops right up front. Decent hints of apricot in the body. Very faint whisps of pepper (and banana?) throughout it's straw soul.

Taste: Smooth (almost creamy) orange citrus on top of an easy straw body. Faint apricot dithered with distant notes of pepper.

Overall, it's a pleasant ale. Definitely more of a summer vibe. Lots of sediment throughout, top to bottom. Juicy and increasingly pleasing with every couple of sips.



(No pic, because finding any sumo in a motorcycle sidecar just isn't an easy thing to come across and I don't want to spend for-fucking-ever searching for a pic when I could be having fun instead.)

Geez... it's been close to an hour since my last beer post!
I should really try to drink my beers a bit faster, yeah?

I think so.

Can't turn back time, but I can move forward.
And so...

Beer #2:

(Alc. 7%)
(Evil Twin - Coffenade)

Smells: That's weird. I'm not even sure how to describe what I'm smelling. Coffee and grass and some kind of wood with just a spritz of lemon?

Tastes: Yeah, I can taste the lemon/coffee blend, and some grassy notes, but... not really tasting like it was a great idea.

Overall, it's like some grass and lemons were thrown in a blender with light/medium coffee grinds and blended. I don't suggest trying this one. Maybe it's your thing, but I doubt it.



(No pic, cause this shit don't deserve one.)

I haven't gotten any faster I guess.
Maybe next time.
For now though, best be moving on to...

Beer #3:

(Innis & Gunn - Vanishing Point 01)

Smellin: Sweet oak and that old familiar raisin sweetness ride shotgun with delicate vanilla notes. Smoky sweet with echoes of dark chocolate.

Tastin: Smoky oak takes a slight lead. Natural vanilla follows up with a helping hand from semi-sweet chocolate. Warm bourbon rounds out the bottom.

Overall: It's fucking Innis & Gunn, so you know it's bangin. Velvety and not too sweet if you take your time. Even though it's only 11% alcohol, it takes on a somewhat cognac-esque quality.


(Someone else come up with a pic... I'm not in the mood to search for something more fitting than the movei, Vanishing Point.)
