Dark Apparition

Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

Russian Imperial Stout

9.4/10 by scot have another Dark Apparition by Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

Pours opaque with a finger of mocha colored, thick foam. Retention is nice but eventually recedes to a creamy ring around the snifter edges. Lacing is thick, lasting and coating, retreating while leaving half behind. Aroma is rich. Licorice, roast and chocolate. Caramel. Quite nice. Taste of roast, caramel and chocolate are blended, yet distinct. Big body with a stiff carbonation thickens the body. Creaminess to the sip. Dries the palate, leaves the lips slightly sticky. A solid offer...read more

Restless Soul

O'so Brewing Company

American Wild Ale

6.0/10 by scot have another Restless Soul by O'so Brewing Company

Pours clear with minimal white head. Aroma has slight wine like notes that are quickly covered by caramely sweetness. Taste has hints of Brett but is sweet. The finish is cloyingly sweet. Lingers. Oak. Medium body with good carbonation. Wanted this beer to be fantastic but far from it. The candy and caramel like sweetness is too much throughout. Enjoy!...read more

Gotta Get Up To Get Down

Wiseacre Brewing Company

Milk/Sweet/Cream Sout

7.4/10 by scot have another Gotta Get Up To Get Down by Wiseacre Brewing Company

Pours opaque with an inch of thick, mocha colored foam. Retention and lacing are not cooperating. Aroma is roasted coffee intertwined with a roasted sweetness. Direct. Taste has roasted coffee up front, slowly fading by the finish. The lactose sweetness picks up, creating an oiliness that lingers. Roasted end, seemingly for balance lasts as well. Medium body. About the same carbonation. Lightly creamy. The strong coffee, sweetness and roast attempt to create a balance but each is too d...read more

Alaskan Imperial Rye (Pilot Series)

Alaskan Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

9.2/10 by scot have another Alaskan Imperial Rye (Pilot Series) by Alaskan Brewing Company

Pours clear. Inch of small bubbled, tan foam. Good retention while frothy mildly. Sporadic thin, sticky lacing. Aroma is big on rye. Caramel rides shotgun while citrus hops brings up the rear. Taste is sweet up front. Rye in the middle to the finish, joined by citrus. Rye gives a nice spicey bite while the hops add a slight balancing bitterness. Medium body. Medium or better carbonation. Dry. No alcohol. Had the bottle for a couple of months and don't know how old it is since there ...read more

Local's

Short's Brewing Company

American Standard Lager

7.8/10 by scot have another Local's by Short's Brewing Company

Pours slightly cloudy. Pure white foam covers but runs away faster that Carl Lewis. No lacing. Aroma of light bread malts and lemon grass. Taste follows. Light. Refreshing. Bread and lemon. Light body and medium body form crisp, subtlety dry finish. Easy drinking. Not as bad as some rating sites suggest. Enjoy!...read more

Evil Urges

Short's Brewing Company

Belgian Dark Strong Ale

6.4/10 by scot have another Evil Urges by Short's Brewing Company

Pours opaque. Small floating particulate. Half inch of mocha foam. Better than average retention. Lacing exists: thin, spotty. Aroma is dark fruit, alcohol and candy sugar sweetness. Alcohol twinges the nose on deep wafts. Light earth musk. Chocolate. Taste is chocolate malt up front. Middle bring candy sugar and dark fruit. End brings a lingering alcohol. Body is rather big but not large. Medium carbonation, at best. Creamy. Big alcohol. Lingers but is cut by sweetness and bitter...read more

Mothman

Greenbrier Valley Brewing

American Black Ale

6.1/10 by scot have another Mothman by Greenbrier Valley Brewing

Pour opaque. Half glass of tan foam that is thick and frothy. Slow recession leaves a rocky head. Lacing is plentiful, immediate. Aroma is stinging pine hops. Chocolate. Caramel hidden behind the hops. Taste is creamy to the lips to start. Hops begins in the middle, lasting to the finish, creating a bitter end. Pine, light citrus and a touch of sweet. Medium body and carbonation. The beginning of the sip has a nice creaminess. Dry. A solid beer, slightly above average. Too much bit...read more

The Blunt

Bridge Brew Works

American Amber Ale

5.0/10 by scot have another The Blunt by Bridge Brew Works

Pours clear. A huge amount of off-white, tiny bubbled foam covers. Slow to retreat leaves no trace behind. Frothy. Aroma is straight forward and simple: caramel, toffee and hints of chocolate. Taste is more sweet treats from the malt. Suggests contamination. Medium body with ridiculous amount of carbonation. Too much malt and sweetness. Expect American ambers to have more balance with hops. Based on the amount of foam, more than half a glass, there is the start of an infection. I can ...read more

Gose

Westbrook Brewing Company

Gose

9.3/10 by scot have another Gose by Westbrook Brewing Company

Pours cloudy but not opaque. Frivolous amounts pure white, fleeting foam covers. Quickly disappears with no chance of lacing. Lemon hits the nose first. Sour, wheat and refreshingly crisp on the nose. Light sea salt. Taste is lemon, wheat, salt, and tart. Tart on the edge of sour. Light body with spritzy carbonation. Dry on the palate. The combination of the salt and lacto sourness, laced with the dry finish, make for an insatiably drinkable beer. One of the few goses I have had but d...read more

Rebel Kent The First

3 Sheeps Brewing Company

American Amber Ale

6.2/10 by scot have another Rebel Kent The First by 3 Sheeps Brewing Company

Pours slightly opaque but clear around the edges as the beer is dark. Off-white foam is a finger thick. Retention and lacing are minimal. Lots of malt on the nose. Caramel, toffee, toast, and bread. Not overwhelmingly sweet smelling though. Good balance between the malts. Floral initially becoming more fruity as it warms (yeast?). Taste is almost identical to the nose. Caramel, toffee and bread carry this beer. The fruitiness leans more towards the yeast than hops. No bitterness. Not...read more
