Wow.
So.
It's been, like, an entire freakin month, people!
(I can't complain, it's only because I was away on vacation. )

But, now I'm back and ready to get back into the swing of things!
Are you ready?
Cause here we go!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 7.2%)
(Hoof Hearted Brewing - Tickling the Ivories)

Smell: Melon, peach, and grapefruit up front. Then a whiff of pine introduces the bready body. With a pithy note sustained throughout.

Taste: Melon, peach, and some sweet grapefruit. A sustained pithy note, faint pine. All on a bready body.

Overall, quite a juicy brew! Dominated by an even sweetness, yet nicely tempered by pith and pine. The dry undercurrent strengthens towards the back end, but it never comes across as unpleasantly bitter.




And for a proper return of my beer reviews, a pic related to the beer I'm drinking:

It's been over an hour?!?
Looks like I've taken my sweet ass time getting around to this next post!
Shame on me.

But let's not dwell on that.
It's time for...

Beer #2:

(Alc.8%)
(Stillwater - Frond)

Smells: Dank pineapple and a hint of stone fruit wander forward. Citrus notes come up with the thick cracker body. All on top of a creamy sugar base.

Tastes: Smooth stone fruit and soft pepper notes stride forward. Dank pineapple and listless citrus notes ride alongside a biscuit body.

Overall, this was an interesting beer from the first sip. The head was insanely thick, like some kind of dessert foam. This gave a slightly different taste profile than it has after the foam dies down. Either way, it's a tasty (if dark in profile) brew with a pleasantly thick creaminess.



(Taking too long to find a decent pic, skipping this one.)

Ok, I'm still under an hour.
GO GO GO!
(Edit: Didn't make it. I started this post over 20 minutes ago. Oops.)

Beer #3:

(Alc. 9.6%)
(Decadent - Multiflora)

Smellin: Green hops, sweet and bitter, right up front. Soft citrus wafts through. And... maybe... the faintest of banana notes? And a body somewhere between cracker and bread.

Tastin: Green earthy notes bring along quieter citrus notes, both riding a heady bouquet. A distant mistaken banana gives way to a biscuit backbone.

Overallin, I really think this has elements of a bouquet of floral flavors. Not perfumey or anything, but more like honey... like wildflowers and honeysuckle. As for the banana notes, don't expect to drink it and be like, "Hey! Banana!"... it's more like an ambiance than hard lighting. I feel like it's better than I'm explaining though, so... if you see it and think my review made it sound like a "maybe", just get it. Trust me, you'll like it!




Obviously, "Multiflora" isn't a hard one to find a pic for.
(Although, it is a hard one to pick just one!)

Well hello there, recently more active SCmkII!
How's things?

Did you know today is National Beer Lover's Day?
Well, it is!
And I'm about to get into it, so... let's get it on!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 8.2%)
(Flying Fish - Few & Far)

Smell: Faint tangerine outlines softly bitter hops. An easy cracker body holds a note of pine.

Taste: Pine and faint nectarine on a cracker body. Softly bitter hops holds hands with hints of sweet malt. Dry and piney finish.

Overall, the flavors here are unobtrusive. It still has a solid profile, it's just kinda laid back. Tasty and very easy to drink. The strongest note is dry and piney, but it doesn't charge at you. Not bad.



(And sorry, but I have no idea what kind of pic would go with this.)
(As always, please feel free to add your own suggestions!)

Ok, let's get moving on to the next IPA.
I'm reservedly excited for this one.
As a huge fan of the flavor profile it's based on, I'm hoping for an amazing experience.
(Or at least a delectable one.)

So, why am I yammering on instead of trying it?
Good question.
How about I just get on to the drinking part of this post?!?

Beer #2:

(Alc. 7%)
(Evil Twin - Key Lime Pie)

Smells: Maybe key lime pie? Not sure if it's me or the beer, but... I can barely smell this at all.

Tastes: More tart lime, less creamy pie. A cracker body with subtle graham notes. Kind of drinks like a sour.

Overall, this is a tasty brew. I hoped for more of a pie taste, unfortunately it just doesn't get all the way there. It's still yummy, but it should've been called "Key LimePA" instead. Either that, or have added some lactose.





Ok, so, like, I tried.
But, while not bad, this is the best pic I could find:

Alright, I suppose I should bite the bullet and move on to my last beer of the night.
I've been done with the last one for a little bit now, but busying myself with Twitter.

Anyfuckinway... let's get to the beast of the night, shall we?

Beer #3:

(Alc. 11%)
(Demented - Wrath)

Smellin: Fireside chocolate. Appropriately bready body. And the most distant raisin note amidst the sweet malty/espresso background.

Tastin: Smoky chocolate espresso. Biscuit body. Faint, sweet malt undercurrent. A velvet beauty.

Overallin, a beautiful stout that I wish I'd tried one of the other dozens of times I've seen it! S'okay... good shit is good shit and worth waiting for. This stout is smooth, velvety... just right up my alley.




(So weird. I totally expected to be able to grab a pic for this with no problem. But, alas, my luck is lacking.)
(But, I gotta post SOMEthing for the last beer of the night!)
(So...)

Here's a close-enough pic, mateys:

Back again for another night of drinking.
This time I'm taking it kinda easy (I've got shit to do tomorrow).

Beer #1:

(Alc. 6.5%)
(Omnipollo - Oaxaca)

Smell: Mango and sweet citrus served up on a bit of bread. A distant note of pine rounds out the edges.

Taste: Faint mango and sweet citrus served up on a bit of bready cracker. A very distant note of pine rounds out the edges.

Overall, this is a pretty juicy brew. The only bitter notes come in at the backend and are still slight at that. Tastes more like a sparkling juice than a beer. Not entirely, but well enough to notice.




And hey!
A pic to with it!

And next was a bad idea.
I mean, it's a 12oz can and still under 7% alcohol.
Is that even close to a good idea?

It's probably... well...

Beer #2:

(Alc. 6.8%)
(21st Amendment - A Terrible Idea)

Smells: Stone fruit with a touch of pith and pine. A cracker body. Distant whispers of banana and clove.

Tastes: Dank stone fruit with a touch of sweet citrus. Lined with pith and pine. The biscuit body holds hands with (possible) trailing suggestions of banana/clove.

Overall, a bit confusing to nail down the flavor profile, to be honest. And there was a lot of head when I poured it. But my tasting notes are close enough. Maybe.




And a little something I didn't spend too much time in finding:

And for my final act of the night, I'll finally have a brew worthy of the stemmed tulip glass I'm using!

Beer #3:

(Alc. 8.2%)
(Two Roads - Two Juicy)

Smellin: Subtle pineapple and nectarine. Cracker body. Some distant dank hay?

Tastin: Subtle layers of pineapple, nectarine, pear, and clove. The cracker/biscuit body in harmony with understated earthy spices and camouflaged fruity esters.

Overall, this is a really enjoyable brew that's both juicy and earthy. I could easily pound this beer if I... well, wait... I do WANT to, but I also want to savor it for a bit. This beer has every right to be confident in its thick self



How 'bout this?
I got a pic for every review tonight!
Huzzah!

Well, after skipping a week due to a family trip, I'm back!

Tonight I have a selection that include's one from Founder's, which turns out to be a very socially conscious company (under The Big Pitcher, their corporate giving platform)!
Once I saw that earlier today, I made it a point to support them by buying one of their brews.

But first...

Beer #1:

(Alc. 6.8%)
(Rusty Rail - Fog Monster)

Smell: Resinous pine with some citrus up first. Then joined by a bit of stone fruit on a biscuity body.

Taste: Bold, dry pine with a just a hint of citrus pith. On a gently biscuity body.

Overall, mostly a dry pine brew. Seems like it should be more bitter, but it's got rounded corners and is an easy draw. Hints of citrus throughout, but the pine heavy hops take up most of the stage.



(Yeah, no pic for this one. Sorry bout that.)

Ok... time to move on.

But, before reading on, please make sure you're not currently in a position of having food or drink in your rat holes.
Or else it may go spewing out in laughter.

Ok...
here we go...


Beer #2:

(Alc. 7.2%)
(Bolero Snort - Free Bully)

Smells: Lightly funky citrus flows through oceanic notes on a cracker surfboard.

Tastes: Slightly funky citrus breaches through sea salt spray. A faint cracker body gently supports the beachiest of brews.

Overalls, the salt is really nicely distributed in this brew. Immediately makes me think of the beach... standing in the ocean, sea spray on my lips and the sun on my face.
Drink this.




Originally, I was going to skip the pic for this one.
I mean, a kid and an orca (or, in this case, a bull)?
But after tasting it... it's just a fucking awesome, sunny day at the beach.

So, here, have this:

Fair warning, I'm already decently inebriated.
Writing sentences without spelling errors is taking a little extra time.
And I'm just now about top get to the last beer of the night.
Which is also the highest alcohol content.

I'll try to remember to come back and post some random shit.

For now, time to hit up this last beer of the night.
AKA - Beer #3:


(Alc. 11.1%)
(Founders - Barrel Runner)

Smellins: RUM. Also, caramel and toasted oak. Distant hay shimmers on a faint wheat body.

Tasteins: Oak rum barrels and caramel dominate the scene. Somewhat funky hay lays back on a subtle wheat layered undergrowth.

Overallins, this does not drink like an IPA. It's a rum barrel aged brew that's well made for small to medium sips. Do not gulp.



As for a pic?
It doesn't have much by way of obviously related elements, but I think it certainly has the feel of this concoction!

SO...
I'm not sure if I ever mentioned this, but... you know what's a thing about my drinkin nights?

Post-3rd beer.

That's when I can start putting other things in my mouth!

HEY!

I mean, food or non-beer inebriants.
I suppose sexual things would count too though.

Point is... I try not to have anything in my mouth while drinking my 3 beers (besides palate cleansing water).
This way, I get the best review I can.

But once I finsh that 3rd review... it's not long before I'm eating/smoking/whatevering.


So yeah.
That stuff.

Rock on.

Hello there.
Just came by to pad my postcount a bit.

Turns out, I'm only several posts away from hitting 10,000!
I'm also now just ONE tweet away from having 10,000 tweets as well.
Yay me!

I've been holding off from posting anything on Twitter though, as I want my 10k post to be something cool.
So, it'll end up being my first post about beer a little later tonight.
Because beer.

See ya soon with a drink in my hand!

Alrighty, time to get to drinkin!

Got a different setup tonight... and for the next few drinking nights.
See, I got some beer as gifts from family members, so I'll be going through that stuff.
Possibly only one review tonight, as I have two 36oz crowler cans in this collection.
(Maaaybe a second brew, since the crowlers are a lower abv.)

So, without further ado...

Beer #1

(Alc. 6.5%)
(Ship Bottom - Hop & Hazy)

Smell: Stone fruit and pineapple lead the way. Pine undercurrents. A slightly bready cracker body.

Taste: Dry pine up front, in the middle, and stronger as it goes. A pineapple note amidst the bitter hops. Cracker body.

Overall, this leans further into pine and bitter hops than I prefer. However, if that's your thing, this brew handles it fairly well. Not bad.

Peek-a-boo!
Time for two!

Yeah, turns out that first crowler wasn't quite enough alcohol to make the night right.
So, what else could I do but move on to...

Beer #2:

(Alc. 6.5%)

Smells: Pumpkin and nutmeg move forward, perhaps with a touch of cinnamon and clove. Earthy vanilla lays back, close to the biscuity body.

Tastes: Pumpkin, nutmeg, and a touch of vanilla. Followed by a bready body, hinted with cinnamon.

Overalls, this is a very tasty brew. I'm not sure if I'm getting the tastes profile correct though. I'm saying "pumpkin", but that's only because I'm not sure what else to describe it as. Whatever the correct notes are, it's definitely a fitting Oktoberfest brew!




And I owe y'all at least one pic for the night, yeah?

Yeah.

Alrighty, big night tonight!!
I only have two new beers to review, which are the second half of the gifted brews I received a couple weeks ago.
But the big part is that I'll be hitting 10,000 posts!!!

Once upon a time, that would've been a "big deal" 'round these parts.


So, without further ado, let's do!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 6%)
(Ship Bottom - The Shack)

Smell: Soft pine, pithy pineapple and a whiff of stone fruit lead the way. A note of sweet wheat winds throughout the brew. All on a biscuit body.

Taste: Soft pine leads the way. Subtle pineapple pith and sweet wheat notes fill it out. With a body that suggests bread, but reads cracker.

Overall, a solid brew. Nothing too bitter or exaggerated in any direction. A nice, even flavor profile. It's a good beer for when you just want a beer, but you can't stand the thought of any of the standard pisswater macros out there.




Ok, so I was going to find a pic for this, but then I read what it was about.
And honestly, I kinda want to leave the memory of this one in peace.
(Don't worry, I'll make sure the next beer gets a pic!)

Sometimes they're weird things.
Sometimes I share them.

This is sometimes.

And here we are.
One of the weakest beers I've reviewed, but it gets the honored position of POST #10K!!

I can't believe I finally made it here.
I'd like to give props to all the 10kers who came before me.
And I want to thank my family and friends.

OH!
AND DANCING BACON!


And Lady Gaga!

And my store that still hasn't opened!

And ForgetMeNot, the X-Man that nobody knew of!


But I should get moving on to the review.
So, here we go.

Beer #2:

(Alc. 5.3%)
(Pinelands Brewing - Evan John Porter)

Smells: Vanilla, marshmallow root, and a hint of coffee start it up. The breadish body cushioning the corners.

Tastes: Vanilla soul, walks forward with a touch of coffee and marshmallow root in tow. Something like a bready cracker fills out the body.

Overalls, a fairly tasty brew. A bit thin in the body and tiny in the bubbles. Of course, I may just be thinking of it as an underachieving stout instead of a decently performing porter (since I have much more experience in the former). But, it's yummy and low in alcohol, so it could be useful in a lot of different situations.
I don't know... it's pretty good, but not kill-for-it-amazing.
(I'm giving it 3.75/5 on Untappd)




And I didn't forget that I promised y'all a pic for this one!
*goes to find something fitting*
How about this one?

Hey there!
Surprise!

It's a special one-off!
(Just got it so I can get the anniversary badge on Untappd.)

anyway...

Beer #1 (of 1):

(Alc. 5.5%)
(Clown Shoes - Mango American Kolsch)

Smell: Almost like a standard beer with a touch of sweetness on a metallic cracker body.

Taste: Mango is front-forward for the whole ride. A whisper of pine and pepper hide in the cracker body. Some bitter hops curl under the tongue.

Overall, not bad. A fairly tasty brew, with the pine and bitter hops building a little as I get through it. It seems versatile, like it could fit in on a summer afternoon or a winter evening.



(No pic. It was proving hard to find as there's apparently a nude model with the name "Mango"... but no mangoes in her pics.)

Ok, I'm back for a real night of drinking this time!

I've got a couple new ones and a couple I reviewed recently.
I'll be starting with the new ones, then drinking the others as "needed".


Beer #1:

(Alc. 9%)
(Mother Earth Brew Co - Primordial)

Smell: Citrus, sweet and pithy, rises forth on a cracker body and an undercurrent of wheat/hay.

Taste: Pithy citrus, with a sweet backbeat, gives way to bitter piney hops. All on a creamy, cracker/biscuit body.

Overall, this is more bitter than I prefer, but not exceedingly so. Citrus on the front end, pine in the back. The creamy body gives it some heft. A decent west coast IIPA.


(No pic. I thought it would be easy, but it's not... as always, feel free to offer up your own take on this!)

Alrighty, on to beer #2!
(And all I've done is post my beer review in a couple other places, lol.)

But, I've decided to change it up.
I think I'd rather keep the stout for last... or at least 3rd.
So, I'm just going to have a Pinelands Oktoberfest for now.

Obviously, there's no need for a review of something I just reviewed several posts ago.
So...

yup

And finally...

Beer #3!

(Alc. 8.3%)
(Founders - Breakfast Stout)

Smells: Sweet, black coffee and dark chocolate. Malted oats in the middle. Supported by a biscuit body.

Tastes: Black coffee calls up dark chocolate for some malted oatmeal. All pulling up seats on a biscuit for a dry spell.

Overalls, it's a Founders stout... how could I go wrong? Apparently, I couldn't! Good shit, even if fairly standard. It's just that the standard for these brews tends to be good shit... knowhudimean?




Ok, I just KNEW this one would give me something to work with!
Here we go...
you're lovely beer related pic...

Oh hi again... I'm back for another mid-week badge beer.
And it's quite an interesting set-up on the label!
An oak aged stout fermented with syrah must. o.o

So, let's see what happens with this... thing!

Beer #1 (of 1):

(Alc. 10%)
(Dogfish Head - Oak Aged Siracusa Nera)

Smell: Tangy red wine up front with smokey oak close by. Also, coffee and dark chocolate notes just underneath them. Seems like a cracker body and I swear I can smell the smaller, porter-like bubbles.

Taste: Smokey oak and tangy syrah notes lead the way. Soft, dark coffee/chocolate flow underneath. Metallic cracker of a body.

Overall, this is not yer daddy's stout. A wild and weird combo of flavors blend together more seamlessly than I expected, making the tasting notes a bit harder to decipher. The oak and syrah must definitely are most apparent. The more common stout notes hide in the back a bit.
And the body... is weird. For a stout. Small bubbles, thinner than normal, and a lack of a bready quality to the body... it's like it has the body of a porter.
Pretty interesting and unique brew.



And here's a fairly fitting pic to go with this one as well:

Hey anyone reading this...
I just wanted to stop in and mention that I'm aware that I haven't had a real drinking night in, like, a whole month!

It's not that I don't love y'all, it's just... life has been hella busy.

But, as soon as I get the chance, I'll be back for another round!

In the meantime, feel free to say hi on the ol' Twitterbox: @Kick_Frenzy

Well... shit man, it's been *checks watch* almost 4 damn months since my last post in here!
(And 4 1/2 since my last beer review.)
Talk about life running away with ya... but hey, in the meantime, it appears I've quit smoking!!
(I REALLY want one, just one, tonight... for after I'm done drinkin my beers. yarg)

Anywayz...
BEER TIME!!!

So, let's see... how do I do this again?
Oh yeah!
Right!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 7%)
(Evil Twin - Learn What Is to Be Taken Seriously and Laugh at the Rest)

Smell: Sweet citrus and stone fruit right up front. A thick cracker body buffers the pineapple hay background.

Taste: Juicy citrus and dank peach come forward with distant pine following on a soft cracker trail.

Overall, this falls in the Five Alive category. It tastes a lot like what I remember Five Alive tasting like when I used to get it at the sports place I went to as a kid for tennis lessons. Gets a bit more bitter and dank/overripe towards the end, but not terribly so... like the flesh around a peach pit.




And y'all know I couldn't come back after 4 months and not include a pic!
Especially with my first review!
(Apparently Tobey Maguire helped this girl don her new ocean inspired covering.)

It's been way too long, brothers and sisters.
One 7% beer and I'm feeling it.
Not drunk or anything, but... yeah...
um..

Onward!

Beer #2:

(Alc. 6.2%)
(Rusty Rail - Twilight Falcon)

Smells: A subdued candied citrus crown holds the front, while the slight biscuit body peeks out from behind while holding hands with whispers of pine.

Tastes: Soft pine, tempered with subdued candied citrus. A hint of a biscuit body gives way to a dry, calm, pithy pine background on the back half.

Overalls, a fairly nice brew. The pine is pronounced, but not aggressive or too bitter. Even if it does build a bit on itself by the end. S'alright.



Not quite twilight...
but close enough.

It's ya pic!

Alrighty, I've been excited for this last beer since I saw it in the store.
The label just... you know what?
Instead of talking about it, how about I just do the review?
Yeah?


Yeah.


Beer #3:

(Alc. 8%)
(Hoof Hearted Brewing - Everybody Wants Some)

Smellin: Sweet vanilla orange-leaning citrus leans forward with a few pine needles and blades of grass on it's back. Then the biscuit body rounds out the bottom.

Tastin: Orange/lemon citrus and blithe pith introduce dry pine on a biscuit/cracker body, then all suggest an earthy exit together.

Overallin, the bite is more dry pine than the smell portrayed, but it's cool. It's tasty and diggable. Perfect for a bright summer day in the woods.




And like the beer says...
Everybody wants some!!

Well, once upon a time, 2 weeks since my last review would be like "WOAH!", but now it's like "woah".

Not much to say this time around before getting into it, except that I ran across Mulch on Twitter the other day.
So that was cool.
I also see Fmeh from time to time, which is also cool... but not as rare.

Anywayz, I guess I should get started with...

Beer #1:

(Alc. 6%)
(Robinsons - Trooper Hallowed)

Smell - Slightly wet hay and faint raisins rest in a waft of malty farmhouse wind, a frail crackery-bread body underneath.

Taste - Slightly wet hay and faint raisins rest in a waft of malty farmhouse wind. A frail crackery-bread body underneath.

Overall, this is a very even-tempered brew. Nothing jabs at you and it's exceedingly easy to drink. Would be great at a concert.


And, for the pic...
well...

How could I not use this one for this beer?!?




Also, I couldn't post this without an Iron Maiden vid to go with it!

About to move on to the next review, but first... an unrelated musical treat.



That's the first song I got into by Cherry Glazerr.
Since then, I've enjoyed several others.
I've also started a Pandora station based on them.
It's been awesome for pretty much every song by every band it's played.
(And also introduced me to other bands, like The Frights.)

Good shit.

K... I'll be back in a... well, it's just the next post for you, my dear non-existent readers.
For me, I have to get my beer prepped and everything.

Whatever whatever... see you next post.

Ok, I'm all set... no wait, that's a lie.
I'm setting up this post, then I'm getting the beer together.
(This is standard, as it keeps the beer cold while I type all this other shit.)

So, I'll soon be drinking and reviewing...
Beer #2 (and yes, I'm drinking these backwards):

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

Smells - Toasted wheat and oats, with peachy hops and a hint of citrus, approach on a bready body.

Tastes - Toasted wheat/oats walk a dry, pithy path. Hints of peach and citrus follow, just above the biscuitish body. Piney outro.

Overalls, this is a pretty dry offering. Contemplative in nature, the almost bitter dryness lingers for a moment on the backend while pronouncing the piney aspects of the brew. If you like dry beer, this would be right up your alley. It reminds me of trying to clean sap off your hands, but not in a bad way.



I have to admit, it was fun finding pics to go with this beer.
(These beers.)

For Yang, we have:

As I type this, I'm finishing up Yang.
Figured I'd just get started anyway.
I mean, the sooner I get the 3rd review done, the sooner I can put something in my mouth other than beer and water!

(I can hear what you're thinking... )

So, the last review of the night is, of course, for...

Beer #3:

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

Smellin - Black coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, and sly suggestions of oatmeal raisin cookies... all precede a sweet malt undertow, resting on a bready cracker.

Tastin - Black coffee and suggestions of oatmeal raisin cookies precede a sweet malt undertow. A semisweet chocolate current leads to a bready cracker body.

Overallin... hot DAMN, but how I've missed these wonderful, wonderful stouts! There isn't much to add to the smell/taste notes, except for a slight metallic moment at the very end... but that could just be from being in a can. Excellent shit.



And as I said before, finding pics was fun.


And for Yin, we have:

Well shit, apparently it's been a month and a week?!?
I totally missed April!
Even missed posting in this thread for 4/20!
Shame on me!

Ok, enough freaking out.
How about I get to drinking instead?
Yeah?
yeah

Beer #1:

(Alc. 10%)
(Half Acre - Big Hugs (2019))

Smell - Bitter dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans take a strong lead, then rest on a bready base with malted whisps swirling around the base.

Taste - Unassuming roasted coffee, bitter dark chocolate, and possible dark cherry notes. Resting on a slightly malty, bready base.

Overall, this is a fairly standard, coffee brewed, imperial stout. I've tasted more delectable versions, but this holds its own.


(I don't know on the pic... not bothering.)

Done for the night.

Alright, good news everyone... I'm back after only 6 days!

OH YEAH!
I haven't told yous guys!
I started another Kick Box!
This time on Twitter: The Kick Box - on Twitter!
(It's cool and weird having sub-threads for each topic. Like, one for music, one for beer, one for random shit, and so on.)

Good times.

Anyway... BEER!
I got some more!
Ready?

Here we go!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 9.5%)
(Two Evil - Saigon Scooter Selfie)

Smell: Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and a distant inkling of raisins. Vanilla lined bready paths, sprinkled with brown sugar, lead the way out.

Taste: Roasted coffee with cream. Hints of raisins in the biscuit body lead to a lip-smacking brown sugary vanilla outro.

Overall, this is a different enough profile from most stouts to make it it's own thing. It's hard to describe, but that vanilla/brown sugar moment at the end is like... like, if you ever smoked clove cigarettes and you had the taste on your lips after taking a drag. like that? That's what the end of this reminds me of, in terms of lip licking leftovers.



And hey...
I have a pic this time!!

Anyone want some coffee?

So remember that time I drank a beer and was ready for another one?
Yeah... that was awesome.

Beer #2:

(Alc. 13%)
(Fat Orange Cat and Decadent - Baker's Dozen)

Smells: A definite, but subdued, blend of chocolate and chili peppers is tailed by vanilla with a cinnamon undertone. All on what seems to be a biscuity body.

Tastes: Bitter chocolate, tempered with vanilla, guided by cinnamon through a biscuity forest at night, warmed by chili peppers as you exit the stout woods.

Overalls, I'm a little confused. No matter how I try, a lot of flavors are way closer to each other than my Taste review would suggest. This thing is oil thick and tasty, with the warmth mostly on the back end. I don't know... it depends on how much heat you like in your chili pepper beer. It's a little more than I appreciate, but it's not bad either. (I'd probably suggest Saigon Scooter Selfie over Baker's Dozen... maybe.)



(Sorry, I tried to find a good pic. Never got around to one. And I'm not spending all night looking for a pic.)

And that's it for reviews tonight.
I have more shit to drink if I want it, but that's it for new brews.

And to be honest, I'm just postin shit so I get to the 1,000th post in this thread.

Of course, now I'm thinking how I should do something totally sweet for the 1,000th post, but that I won't think of anything good.
The silver lining is that nobody is ever fucking here, so it doesn't much matter what I post.

I should just make it completely lame, lol.
