Nelson Sauvin Ninja

Pipeworks Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

8.3/10 by scot have another Nelson Sauvin Ninja by Pipeworks Brewing Company

Wife received as a gift for coaching basketball. Pours clear with minimal carbonation. A white, thick, and sticky finger of foam covers. Lacing is dotted, sticky and heavy. Retention is mild at best. Aroma is definitely that stereotypical Nelson Sauvin hop: strawberry and kiwi. Taste has light sweetness up front that carries gently throughout, helping to balance. Lots of late hops with alcohol adding more to the bitterness than the hops. Lots of late hops and whirl-pooling? Not as dry ...read more

Scurry

Off Color Brewing

Altbier

8.2/10 by scot have another Scurry by Off Color Brewing

First review of newer Chicagoland brewery. Pours clear but somewhat opaque from the deep ruby color highlighting the brown. Foam is half a finger of tan and loosely packed. Retention and lacing are no shows. Aroma is strong oats and "typical" malt scent that you get from German malt beers. Honey more than molasses is there as well. Taste is similar: malt forward. Caramel, maybe toffee hints give the sense of sweet; subtle. Honey lends attitude. Medium body. Carbonation is m...read more

Sexual Chocolate

Foothills Brewing

Russian Imperial Stout

7.1/10 by rich have another Sexual Chocolate by Foothills Brewing

A: Attractive slick blackness, with a small and soft light brown foam head. S: Seductive, first notes are chocolate and cherries. Then either really good expresso or soft anise. For such a dark beer, no smokey nor charred flavors. To sum up in one word, desserty. T: Starts as though it's going to be really sweet, primary initial taste is licorice and some burnt toast. Ends up that the sweetness drys out quickly. O: Special release from Feb 2009, this was bottle # 62 out of 600. Still was car...read more

Sexual Chocolate

Foothills Brewing

Russian Imperial Stout

7.2/10 by scot have another Sexual Chocolate by Foothills Brewing

February 2009 batch. Bottle 62 of 600. Pours opaque with a half inch of mocha, thick foam. Retention is fleeting leaving spotty, clingy lace. Aroma is chocolate up front and throughout. Cherry and possibly plum bring a touch of age. Molasses, coffee and light scent of licorice round out the nose. Taste has chocolate up front and the hits the wall. That's about it. Not much else. Sort of falls flat. Licorice comes out some, even the cherry but it ends there. Big body keeping a touch of ...read more

Majsgoop

Three Floyds Brewing Company

American Barleywine

9.0/10 by rich have another Majsgoop by Three Floyds Brewing Company

A: Clear Amber gold with orange hues, I've always liked this type of color scheme. Foam was more than expected for a Barleywine. S:Signature 3Fs full tropical fruit notes. First and dominate is tangerine, some piney faint notes, and danky. T: Tropical fruit and sweet, which quickly turn dry from big hops. O: Classic 3Fs, huge hops but in a awesome way. Barleywine is a style that can skew too boozy and overly sweet. That's not this brew. I am a big fan of this beer....read more

Vrienden

Allagash Brewing Company

American Wild Ale

8.5/10 by scot have another Vrienden by Allagash Brewing Company

Pours slightly cloudy with a white, sticky lacing that leaves behind a bit of lacing as it recedes. Aroma is forward funk, really tart. There isn't much else. The taste is more of the same: straight tart funkiness. Medium body or better. Plenty of spritzy carbonation throughout. A nice beer that was fairly one dimensional: tart funk. I assume the age (three years or so in the bottle) has contributed to the tartness consuming this beer. Still, not bad to drink, just slowly. Enjoy!...read more

Easy Jack

Firestone Walker Brewing Co.

American Amber Ale

8.9/10 by scot have another Easy Jack by Firestone Walker Brewing Co.

Poured from a bottled dated 2014-06-02. Pours with the slightest bit of cloudiness. Small pure white foam dissipates rather quickly, leaving light traces of its presence. Aroma is the star. The use of new German hops lend a pleasant fresh citrus and tropical. Light caramel, mainly just pure sweetness, and a touch of grain add trivial balance and complexity. The hops are the star. Taste is more subdued than the aroma. The hops aren't as prevalent, allowing more malt to shine. Delicate fo...read more
