Petite Sour - Blueberry

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

American Wild Ale

8.8/10 by scot have another Petite Sour - Blueberry by Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

Pours clear. Light pink foam quickly runs and hides. No lacing. Aroma is tart, musty with a touch of sweet blueberry. Notion of oak. Taste lightly sweet up front with building blueberry tart and must from the middle, end and into the finish, lingering. Oak is there to add complexity. Sour and acidic Mouthfeel is thin but tons of carbonation. Crisp. Refreshing. Dry. Good amounts of blueberry sweet and tart. Another handsome offering from this line of beers. Enjoy!...read more

Sweet Baby Jesus

DuClaw Brewing Company

American Porter

4.9/10 by scot have another Sweet Baby Jesus by DuClaw Brewing Company

Pours opaque with a quarter inch of tan foam. Feeble retention. Lacing nonexistent. Aroma has hints of chocolate hidden behind a spoonful of peanut butter. Fake/artificial aromas? The taste continues but with a better balance between chocolate and peanut butter. Both taste as if they came from an extract bottle. Roast, dry finish. Light end of medium body is a stretch. Big carbonation aids in creating that faux body. The good part of the beer is the aroma before you realize that it is ...read more

Bean Flicker

Odd Side Ales

Blonde Ale

6.1/10 by scot have another Bean Flicker by Odd Side Ales

Pours clear with many floaties. Foam is minimal while retention does not exist. No lacing. Aroma is more chocolate than it is coffee. Not much else going on. Taste follows. Seems to be more chocolate than coffee. This sense of chocolate also bring some sweetness. Medium body with medium carbonation. Drinks much bigger than a blonde. I am for experimenting as I am a home brewer but when I have to pay for experimentation in a craft beer, I struggle more and more, as disappointment seems ...read more

BOMB!

Prairie Artisan Ales

American Imperial Stout

9.3/10 by scot have another BOMB! by Prairie Artisan Ales

12 ounce bottle served into a tulip glass. Pours opaque. Thin dark tan foam cover, dissipating quickly. Surprisingly lacing exists but quickly recedes. Aroma is tremendous. Cinnamon is what I perceive first but I think that is from the combination of brewing ingredients. Cocoa is the strongest ingredient. Don't know if they use powder but it seems like you are able to smell the powder as well. Pepper comes next. Vanilla is in the background. Chocolate cocoa powder surprise. Taste is ...read more

Miner's Daugher Oatmeal Stout

Mountain State Brewing Company

Oatmeal Stout

4.9/10 by scot have another Miner's Daugher Oatmeal Stout by Mountain State Brewing Company

Pours opaque. Head is off-white, not as deep of color expected for the style. Quickly runs away and hides from its initial thin layer. Wispy , sporadic lacing. Aroma is too light. Black dark malt, possibly nutty but not much else. Faint. Taste is similar to the aroma: not much going on. Black malt, nutty, hints of licorice but that could be me wanting it to be there. Nutty malt lingers. Light to medium body. This is an underwhelming beer. Expecting creaminess from the oats along w...read more

Tarte Nouveau

Weyerbacher Brewing Company

American Wild Ale

6.5/10 by scot have another Tarte Nouveau by Weyerbacher Brewing Company

Two dates on the bottle: 03/23/15 and 09/23/15. Brewed on, bottle on, consume on, etc? Pours with a slight haze. Served cold. Minimal, almost no, foam. White and thin. No lacing. Aroma is white wine like, possibly pear. Light tart, thoughts of brett. Overall, meager aromatics. Taste is wine like up front, once again, pear is included. Middle gives way to a sweet orange which lingers into the finish. Sticks around. Light up front with building body. Still crisp. Carbonation is almost...read more

ICBM Double IPA

Champion Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

7.6/10 by scot have another ICBM Double IPA by Champion Brewing Company

Pours clear with a finger of pure white foam. Retention is solid. Some lacing to start but nary a trace later in the experience. Aroma is dank hops... Stopping review here as the this was canned on 2015-11-03, almost a four month old DIPA. Shame on me for purchasing and shame on the beer store for just getting as a "new" beer....read more

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
