Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout

Goose Island Beer Co.

American Imperial Stout

9.6 by Matt have another Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout by Goose Island Beer Co.

I first reviewed the 2015 version. No gusher on opening and no infection, THANKFULLY! Maple syrupy color. Coffee on the nose. Coffee and barrel on the taste. Sweet, no bitterness of coffee. Well balanced. Super tasty. Look 9 Aroma 9 Taste 10 Feel 8 Overall 9 for rating of 9.3 Above rating is for the 2013 version I had today. It's higher rated because the stronger sweet bourbon notes on the smell make up for less coffee, and it's an extremely smooth and very easily sippable barrel aged beer. T...read more

Bennie

Logboat Brewing Company

American Imperial Stout

8.4 by scot have another Bennie by Logboat Brewing Company

Canned 01/23/2017. Pours opaque. Minimal mocha foam covers. Leaves almost as quickly as it pours. Small, spotty lacing. Aroma is up on the fresh roasted black coffee. Bitter chocolate is right there as well. Sweet lactose and caramel/toffee. Taste is sweet up front: lactose, caramel and toffee. The lactose sweetness is throughout, lingering. The taste brings more chocolate but, surprisingly, pleasantly, there is a nice roastiness that helps to balance the sweetness. Coffee and coffee ...read more

Last Days of Summer

Tampa Bay Brewing Company

Fruit Beer

8.4 by Matt have another Last Days of Summer by Tampa Bay Brewing Company

It's labeled a fruited sour ale, and that's a pretty good description. It's definitely a sour, and there is a bit of fruit flavor to it. It pours a hazy golden straw color with a creamy head that quickly dissipated but has a slight amount of lacing. The smell has a funky kind of farmhouse quality to it, and there's mild fruit scent underneath. I can't quite identify what fruit it is, but there's a crispness and tartness to it. The taste, I believe, would best be described as a mildly sour fruit...read more

Race Day

Daredevil Brewing Co.

American Standard Lager

6.3 by scot have another Race Day by Daredevil Brewing Co.

No date on can. A vigorous pour yields a crystal clear liquid in which over an inch of large bubbled foam. It begins to run way quickly, slightly frothing at the top as it does. Sporadic splotches of lacing. Aroma of spice and grassy hops. Minimal cereal grain takes up the malt end while corn creeps in to say hello. Taste has the spice hops show up. Grass hops are there but the spice really tries to beat back the sweetness of the cereal grain and corn. The grain and corn is early, lastin...read more

Hinchtown Hammerdown

Flat 12 Bierwerks

German Pilsner (Pils)

7.4 by scot have another Hinchtown Hammerdown by Flat 12 Bierwerks

No canning date. Pours clear. An inch of pure white foam covers. Retention is quite nice with quality lacing. Aroma light sweet, bread malt. Floral, spice, and grassy hops. Taste is more of the aroma but the bready sweetness is amped up. Grass and spice come in the middle, lingering through the finish. It does a great job of beating down the sweetness. Definitely and early versus late flavor. No off flavors. Light body with medium carbonation. Crisp and clean. Nothing fantastic abou...read more

Last Days of Summer

Tampa Bay Brewing Company

Fruit Beer

8.8 by scot have another Last Days of Summer by Tampa Bay Brewing Company

Canned on 05/04/17. Pours with a chill haze. Pure white foam that barely covers the liquid below. Retention is above average for the amount of foam. No lacing. Aroma is huge on the fruits. I thought passion fruit but the can reads mango and peach. Maybe that combination together elicits that sense in my olfactories. Tart. Taste is mellow, light sweetness up front with peach and mango taking over in the middle, mixing with tartness near the finish. Light body with a spritzy carbonation t...read more

Reef Donkey

Tampa Bay Brewing Company

American Pale Ale

7.5 by rich have another Reef Donkey by Tampa Bay Brewing Company

L:Ordinary color, pale gold with off-white quick dissipating soft, small foam. A: No question that the aroma is the best part of this beer. Mango and soft pine, and sour orange. T: Almost no sweetness. Not huge a amount of flavor.I don'y hate it, kinda of refreshing. M:Medium body with light carbonation. O:Reminds me of Founders All Day IPA, but more limey citrus. I would drink this again. Crazy difference between aroma (awesome) and taste (muted). Extra points for great name. Prost!...read more

Reef Donkey

Tampa Bay Brewing Company

American Pale Ale

7.8 by scot have another Reef Donkey by Tampa Bay Brewing Company

Pours clear from the can. Solid inch of white foam. Retention is good. Lacing is immediate with heaped helpings. Aroma of pine, resin, mango and orange from the hops. Soft sweetness from the malt that is hard to place/name. Resin and pine are really strong. Taste is a bit flat. Biscuit sweetness. Orange, maybe some tart citrus. Unexpectedly thin body aided by the minimal carbonation. Not crisp but clean without bitterness. The aroma is really a treat but the taste isn't as complex as...read more

Oneida

Modern Times Beer

American Pale Ale

7.7 by scot have another Oneida by Modern Times Beer

Canned on 06/24/17. A vigorous pour yields two fingers of white, tightly packed, small bubbled foam. Frothing on top as it recedes, the foam has quality staying power. Lacing begins immediately, throughout, and is spider web in appearance. Chill haze is present. Aroma of toasted bread with light sweetness. Orange, must grape, pithy citrus, grass, and floral. I wouldn't consider this huge on the nose but it is pleasant. Taste is a mix of hops and malt. Malt is once again, lightly, toaste...read more

Pogue's Run Porter

Flat 12 Bierwerks

American Porter

6.9 by scot have another Pogue's Run Porter by Flat 12 Bierwerks

Pour yields an inch of tan foam that looks creamy. Foam recedes rather quickly, leaving behind sporadic but sticky lacing. Aroma of toasted bread, roast and chocolate. Roast is the strongest. Taste is more one dimensional that the nose. The roast is big. Not much else going on. The roast and bitterness remain. Light body with good carbonation for the style, adding a bit body. Body is a bit light for the style. Was expecting some creaminess based on the initial foam. The aroma and look...read more

Kölsch

7.7 by scot have another Cucumber Kölsch by Flat 12 Bierwerks

Pours clear with hints of a chill haze. An inch of white foam covers. Average retention, possibly better. Lacing was thick, with 90%+ receding back to liquid height while the rest left nice remnants. Aroma is light. Subtle sweetness and cucumber abound at said level. Earthiness. Taste is up-front cucumber. From start to finish. Earthiness is heightened as well. Sweetness is once again subtle. Light body. Carbonation was stiff. Crisp. A nice beer. It is a kolsch with cucumber, i...read more

Axis: Bold as Beer

Werk Force Brewing Company

American Brown Ale

7.3 by scot have another Axis: Bold as Beer by Werk Force Brewing Company

Pours clear albeit quit dark. Huge amounts of tan foam: 70% of the glass or more; makes me think infection. Retention is average for the amount of foam, frothing up as it goes. Nice lacing. Aroma makes me think of cola. Light coffee but the cola beats it down. Hints of sweetness and smoke. Taste of toffee, caramel with hints of smoke and coffee. Medium body with a big carbonation (too much). Dry finish. I expected this beer to be more coffee forward. Instead, it is a solid brown ale...read more
