Coffee Stout

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

American Stout

9.5 by rich have another Coffee Stout by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

A: Deep brown with clarity, not muddy. The foam head was dark Khaki i color, and soft, average retention. S: Mocha coffee aroma right out of a high end coffee spot, very alluring to a coffee aficionado. T: Starts almost semi-sweet, but really is just dry, and zero bite from hop nor coffee, so super mellow. Very creamy feel, but not out of whack in the viscosity area. Nothing is out of balance and the flavors all taste very good to the style and to good coffee. O: A very, very good coffee st...read more

Yakima Fresh

Columbus Brewing Company

American IPA

8.9 by Matt have another Yakima Fresh by Columbus Brewing Company

Bottled 10/09. Received in trade with an Ohioan. Appearance - a goldish bronze that would be clear if it wasn't for the sea of particulates. Slight foam/lacing. Smell - hoppy scent with a citrus/pineapple dank bittersweetness that fresh hops seem to bring. Taste - maybe faded after 6 weeks in the bottle, but still well balanced-citrusy and mildly bitter. Maybe it would have slapped me harder in one and or both of those when fresher, but I ain't complaining. feel - excellent, because it's bal...read more

Holiday Haze

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

American IPA

9.1 by rich have another Holiday Haze by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Part of a SN ' Seasonale 12-pack', 3-bottles in the $13.99 package cost. Packaged 9/25/17, purchased 11/17/17. A: Very fuzzy, pale gold with the appropriate hazy of a NEIPA. On the very low, light of the color spectrum. Big soft, small bubble foam head. S: Really appealing tropical fruit. Maybe mostly pineapple, then grassy and grape-fruity. T: A real tri-balance of the sweetness, hop bitter, and hop flavors. It is juicy like a NEIPA should be, but in a very mature and dry way. O: An origin...read more

Bare Bones Pilsner

Lost Forty Brewing

German Pilsner (Pils)

7.8 by scot have another Bare Bones Pilsner by Lost Forty Brewing

Received in a trade. No date on the can. Not a huge fan of lagers and, more specifically, pilsners in general. Therefore my review may be skewed. I will do my best. Pours crystal clear with a wispy white head that is fleeting. Coating lacing that mostly recedes back to level. Reminents of said lacing a re thick and sticky. Effervescent. Aroma is grassy, mostly, and floral hops. There is a cracker/bread malt backbone that hints at sweetness. Suggestions of spice: black pepper. No sulf...read more

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
