So, hey, non-existent believers.
I started making a Red Bubble shop today.
Or rather, I signed up, updated some settings, and changed my profile pic.
But, I'm planning on making it a RL version of Bang Rumpus.
(Even though Bang Rumpus still isn't open in-world after several years, lol.)

I'll let y'all know when there's more to know.
In the meantime, it's time for beer!
-

Beer #1:

(Alc. 7.2%)
(Fat Orange Cat - All Cats Are Gray in The Dark)

Smell: Soft coffee, cocoa powder, and caramel with hints of white pepper. On a biscuit.

Taste: Cocoa powder, followed by a sustained note of vanilla. An undertone of sweet malt alongside the faint biscuit body.

Overall, I'm not sure what to do with this thing. It seems to get better as I get deeper in the glass, but the cocoa powder flavor always makes me think of old chocolate flavored scratch-n-sniff stickers, or the added flavors of DuClaw beers. There is a definite beer characteristic overlaid on top of the "Taste" description above, but I figure that's usually taken for granted, unless otherwise noted. So, it's not bad, not great.


(Not sure what pic to put with this, so I'm not gonna bother.)

Ok, so it looks like I'm going to end up having 3 beers tonight.
The last one is weird and I'm really looking forward to it.
That said, they're all weird tongiht! XD

For now, this thing is...

Beer #2:

(Alc. 10%)
(Founders - Mas Agave)

Smells - LIME and salt. Faint undercurrent of tequila.

Tastes - Creamy lime with salted tips and lime. Soft tequila undercurrent with lime.

Overalls, LIME! There is SO MUCH lime in this beast, I think I just fell in love. Although, give it a few more sips and the powerful gose style of this brew will probably ask for a break. It's more like key lime pie with a slight bitter backbite than a tequila aged lime gose... or beer. I'm a fiend for lime, so I'm impossibly biased on this one.



And it weren't too hard to find a pic for this brew.
(Although, I feel like I should add a pic to the first beer... maybe another day.)

anyway,
here ya go.

Ok, this should be my last beer of the night.
And I CAN'T WAIT to find out what this shit tastes like!
(It's going to be hard to beat the last one though... fuuuuckkk liiiiime... *drool*)

anywayz...

LET'S GET IT ON!

Beer #3:

(Alc. 8%)
(Omnipollo - Vanitas)

Smellin: Citrus and stone fruit step up, with shoes made of sweet pith. A thought of dry hops spread upon a biscuit body. Somewhat tropical and juicy overall.

Tastin: Nectarine and pineapple lead the way along a subdued wheat path. The biscuit body follows with a trace of dry pine echoing in the distance, doubling back on the outro.

Overallin, this is a pleasant brew that's not too sweet. Thick and juicy, the fruity flavors dominate. (Unfortunately, I'm not really detecting the pistachios or almonds that are supposed to be part of this profile. But it's possible they're helping to round out some edges.)



And, um, I found a fitting pic.
But, I uh...
I'm not sure I should've.

Enjoy?

Well, obviously I skipped last week.
But I'm back again, now.

I think there's only one new beer tonight.
But, I'm running late, so I'm just gonna get to it...

Beer #1:

(Alc. 6.1%)
(Departed Soles - Hoppy Little Trees)

Smell: Peach and orange, backed up by dry hops. Edges rounded by sweet notes (due to milk sugar).

Taste: Peach, nectarine pith, and a bit of orange citrus lead the way along a dry hopped path, with traces of sweet undergrowth.

Overall, it's a kinda juicy, kinda hoppy experience. The bitterness from the dry hops is most pronounced in the backend. Decent brew, but not entirely my thing. It's not disappointing or anything, I"m just not as excited as I'd hoped to be.



But hey, y'all get this pic!

Ok, so, this isn't a new beer, but it is a new... experience?

I'll put it this way... remember when I tried Yin, the stout and Yang, the IPA?
Well, I'm trying them as a "black & tan" now.
Except I didn't pour it right, so it's just a "mostly black".


(Alc. 10%)
(Evil Twin - Yin Yang)

The smells are confusing, so I'm heading to tastes.

Tastes: The chocolate stout notes are bold, but they've done a Cloak & Dagger with Yin... joining forces with the oat and subtle stone fruit notes of Yang.

Overall, this was obviously going to be a tasty concoction. I think I prefer the stout on it's own, but I prefer them together as a B&T over the straight IPA. But, that comes down to personal preference more than overall quality and depth.

I'm just happy to finally try this combo!

Oh hai there.
Life is crazy, so these reviews are taking a bit of a hit.
(Lots of remodeling going on at home, on top of a few other time consuming things.)

But I'm finally back after 3 weeks!
HUZZAH!
Time to DRINK!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 6.5%)
(Jughandle - Background Radiation)

Smell: Nectarine and sweet pineapple pith lead the way. Hay notes bring up the rear on a biscuit body.

Taste: Stone fruit steps up with citrus pith following all along the way, leading to slight hay notes on a biscuity body. Easy bitter hops outro.

Overall, this is a fairly standard, well-made NEIPA. Juicy with bitter notes, easy to drink, tempered by dry hops.


(No idea what to use for a hottie pic on this one, sorry.)

I had a bunch of stuff written out here, but my comp fucked wit me and now I don't want to bother.

Beer #2:

(Alc. 9.1%)
(Departed Soles - Autohops)

Smells: Dank peaches and honey. Bready body with distant pine.

Tastes: Dank honey and subdued peach take the stage, while a peppery biscuit body lends support to a faint note of farmhouse hops.

Overalls, this reminds me of dark honey. There's some farmhouse sensibility, but not actual production. It's thickish and gutturally pleasant.



(Too aggravated by updating bullshit to search for a pic right now.)

Ok, I've done my Taylor Swift impression (I done shook it off) and ready for the last review of the night...

Beer #3:

(Alc. 10.1%)
(Cape May - Concrete Ship)

Smellin: Faint bourbon behind chocolate tinted black coffee. Sweet malt enveloping the experience.

Tastin: Black coffee, soaked in bourbon, steps forward with dark chocolate. Complimentary sweet malt rounds out the smokey oak bottom.

Overallin, it's another rather pleasant stout. It could be argued that there's hidden raisin notes in the distant underbelly, but it's really a standard chocolate/coffee stout... with added smoky bourbon notes. Pretty good shit.



(And really, not sure how a WW1 naval folly results in any kind of sexy pic here, so the night should conclude without any pics.)

(BUT.. I can't just let it go like that!)
(So, lemme find a decent pic of some kind, yeah? Like, related or not? Yeah?)
(yeah)

(so....)

Absolutely unrelated, but here ya go anyway!

Oi! Oi!
Hello mates!

It's been 2 weeks again, but honestly, I'm surprised it wasn't longer.
Doing a ton of crap these days and it's keeping me from foruming/drinking/gaming as much as I like.
But that's life I suppose.
(Plus, most of the crap is actually remodeling work in our home and is less crappy and more wonderful.)

ANYway...
let's get to drinkin!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 7%)
(Edmund's Oast - Bound By Time)

Smell: Dank-ish, piney hops with a backdraft of hay on a biscuit, with a faint edging of white pepper.

Taste: Slightly sweet pine carries over dry hops and faint hay. Served on a thick cracker edged with white pepper.

Overall, this is a smooth, dry IPA. The sweetness is muted, as is the bitterness... yet it all manages to have a bold profile, partially due to the peppery heat on the back end. It seems refined... but that might just be the subconscious influence of the label art. Good shit.


Hmm...
I wonder what pic I might be able to come up with for this brew...

*time passes*

Well, I expected a lot more options...
But still, I ended up with this...

Beer #2:

(Alc. 7.2%)
(Singlecut - Does Anybody Remember Laughter?)

Smells: Honeyed melon and dank hay on a cracker?

Tastes: Spiced farmhouse sensibility with a honeyed pine background, resting on a bit of a biscuity body. Ending with a chest-warm afterthought.

Overall, the body has a fairly creamy thickness. It would go better with a sunset than a sunrise, if that helps. Somewhat earthy, it's agreeable temper brings me back sip after sip.



And again, I thought I'd have an easy time finding a pic.
But, alas... it was not so.

But I DID find this:

And then there was the last beer of the night.

Beer #3:

(Alc. 7.5%)
(Fat Orange Cat - She Drives a Plymouth Satellite)

Smellins: Sweet stone fruit holds hands with pine. A touch of grapefruit rides on the cracker body. Wheat bows on the outro.

Tastins: Dank stone fruit and pine lead the way. A biscuit body carries a bit of grapefruit pith, with a wheaty outro.

Overallins, this has that Five Alive vibe I've talked about before. Both earthy and bitter-juicy. Not my favorite style, but well done for what it is.


And no good pics were found.

Hello again, nobody!
How are y'none doing?
I hope all is well.

I know I've been away for a month, but as I've said before... the past several months have been crazy.
Between home redesigning and summer activities, it's been just a bit busy.

As you've no doubt guessed by now, I haz beers for tonight!
(With a loose "descent into madness" theme.)

So, shall we get going then?
Yes?
OKAY!
Please keep your hands and arms inside the thread at all times... and we're off!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 8%)
(Prairie Artisan Ales - Phantasmagoria)

Smell: Apricot and somewhat pithy grapefruit on a biscuit, with a little pepper heat on the sides.

Taste: Apricot with a touch of grapefruit pith and, further back, a hint of pine. The creamy body feels biscuit-y. Somewhere in the distance, pepper notes.

Overall, this is surprisingly more smooth than I expected. Instead of being bitter or strongly pithy on the front end, it's much calmer. Very drinkable. Kinda dangerously so for something clocking in at 8%.
Good shit.

.
.
.

And yes, I found a pic.
But...

umm...

It's gonna be a weird night:

So, ok, this next beer is...
well, the label is...

just...

Beer #2:

(Alc. 7.2%)
(Abomination Brewing - Only Hell Can Save Us Now)

Smells: Passion fruit and guava introduce slightly bitter hops, with vanilla-sweet lactose playing just behind them. (Not sure if more cracker or biscuit for the body.)

Tastes: Raspberry and guava step gently forward, bringing passion fruit with them. Hushed vanilla hides hefty hops. It tries to get bitter on the outro, but remains calm, even if twangy.

Overalls, this is a pretty tasty brew! I know it's described with slight flavors, but they combine to create a fully fleshed out profile. It's mostly opaque with some sediment in my glass. Another brew that's exceedingly easy to drink!

.
.
.


I guess it's not weird that Hell makes for good pics, hey?

I told you it'd be a weird night...

Damn it.
It's impossible to do almost anything other than reviews while drinking m'beers!

By the time I'm done typing out the review here, re-posting it on Hip Forums, then rating it and posting it on Untappd... it's time for the next beer!

That being said, here's the big boy of the night...

Beer #3:

(Alc. 10.5%)
(Edmund's Oast - Azathoth)

Smellth: Standard black coffee, dark chocolate, molasses. Light bread/heavy biscuit body. Sweet malt comes in at a good clip.

Tasth: Black coffee with hints of dark chocolate. Tinny molasses on a bready biscuit. Sweet, smoky malt builds throughout.

Overalth, this is a fairly standard stout. It's a bit on the smoky side and pretty tasty. Not my favorite, but there's nothing wrong. A good showing.

.
.
.

And for the pic?
HELL if I know, but let's see what I find!

*some time passes*

Huh... weird.
I didn't find anything.

HA!

Wait... it's really been about a month since my last set of reviews?!?
Hot damn, time flies!

So, I only have 2 beers tonight.
Since I aim for around 25% alcohol for the night and they both have a high ABV.

Anyway, I'mma get started.

Beer #1:

(Alc. 10.2%)
(Proclamation Ale + Barreled Souls Brewing - Dr. Presley)

Smell: Subtle bitter chocolate and coriander up first with a vanilla and cherry backstep. Every now and then, it smells kinda like Dr Pepper. All on a subdued biscuit body.

Taste: Cherry chocolate blends with coriander. Sustained soft vanilla throughout. With anise rounding out the edges with a touch of cinnamon.

Overall, this brew actually does remind me of Dr. Pepper. It's not exactly the same, but it is reminiscent of it. A somewhat complex palate, the anise comes through stronger as you go on.

.
.
.

Found a pic.
It's not nude.
But still... oh myyy.

And all of a sudden, it was time for the last beer.
Because there's only two.
Like I mentioned earlier.
(Nobody is reading this.)

Beer #2:

(Alc. 14%)
(Brewdog - Radio Zombie Phone In)

Smells - Malted dark chocolate with coffee notes along for the ride. A bit of a boozy caramel along the sides.

Tastes - Coffee with malted dark chocolate up front. A wisp of caramel then leads to a suggestion of warm, oaky hops.

Overalls - A nice pleasant stout with a warm ending. A bit of a boozy bite in the second half, but not bad. As with most high ABV stouts, it's a sipping drink. It's the better of the two for the night, even if not in my overall top stouts.

.
.
.

So...
You, um, know how the name of this beer is a zombie thing.
Right?
Yeah?

k...
so, just giving you a sec to, um, be ready.

For...
