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...
