Gummy Banter

Noon Whistle Brewing

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

8.5 by scot have another Gummy Banter by Noon Whistle Brewing

Picked up at the brewery three weeks ago on release day. Pours opaque with a half inch of white foam. Retention isn't great but there is residual foam that hangs out around the edges, leaving peaks of lacing. Aroma of mango and pineapple: BIG. Orange, earth and pine are there but to add complexity, not to be highlighted. No sweetness. Taste is muddled and culminates in alcohol/hop burn. There is mango and orange with a stiff bitter bite. Medium body with light to medium carbonation. Dry...read more

Barrel Aged Stupid Sticky Fingers

Werk Force Brewing Company

American Imperial Stout

8.2 by scot have another Barrel Aged Stupid Sticky Fingers by Werk Force Brewing Company

Poured from a bottle without a date. Pours dark as night and opaque. Surprisingly devoid of foam on the pour. Mocha ring around the edges. Said ring leaves nice, thick lacing, most of which crawls back to level, the rest clings to the sides of the glass. Aroma has an initial pleasantness of bourbon barrel: rich brown sugar, bourbon, char, chocolate, vanilla and oak. Lactose from the marshmallow rises and mixes nicely with chocolate. Taste carries the lactose, brown sugar, and chocolate fr...read more

You Big Gummy

Noon Whistle Brewing

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

9.2 by scot have another You Big Gummy by Noon Whistle Brewing

Poured from a can purchased at the brewery ~4 weeks ago. Pours with a inch of pure white foam that doesn't hang around long but leaves a thin layer on top and thickly coats the sides of the glass with each sip. Opaque. Aroma is hop forward with ripe tropical fruit: mango, pineapple and passion fruit. The passion fruit is big here, which is a fruit I love. Taste has a light sweetness that carries the pineapple and mango. Well rounded, making this easy to drink. Medium to high carbonation...read more

Bell Witch Bourbon Barrel Aged

Miskatonic Brewing Company

American Imperial Stout

8.7 by scot have another Bell Witch Bourbon Barrel Aged by Miskatonic Brewing Company

Poured from a bottle picked up on release day at the brewery earlier in year. Opaque beverage with minimal mocha foam with large bubbles. Retention is limited. No lacing. Aroma of bourbon/whiskey is prevalent. Brown sugar is big with hints of oak and roast. Taste is a mix of barrel stouts suspects: chocolate, brown sugar, bourbon, oak and vanilla. The base beer seems hidden. Mouthfeel is big but towards the lighter end. The bourbon builds it up some. Carbonation is more than expected i...read more

Blackberry Sournova

Almanac Beer Co.

American Wild Ale

8.9 by scot have another Blackberry Sournova by Almanac Beer Co.

Gushed out of the can upon opening. Upon pouring into the glass, huge amount of head dominate the clear, deep red liquid beneath. White with pink hues foam recedes rather quickly for its weight. Lacing is thick, quickly receding back. Aroma is funky farmhouse Brett: horse blanket, hay, lemon grass and yeast. Faint blackberries but it seems that bugs have consumed most of the aroma that would be expected by the fruit. No vanilla. Taste carries more berries than the aroma; maybe even a touc...read more

Barrel Aged Dominator Dopplebock

O'so Brewing Company

Doppelbock

7.8 by scot have another Barrel Aged Dominator Dopplebock by O'so Brewing Company

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle purchased earlier this year. No date. Pours with beautiful tan head that is fleeting. Lacing was both sporadically think ad spotty. The color of the foam is top notch. Aroma of whiskey, not bourbon. Hints of oak. Sweet, dark fruits, and toffee. Aged would really bring out the dark fruits. Taste follows the nose. Whiskey mixing with toffee and dark fruits. There is sweetness that lies on the edges and builds. Mouthfeel is on the thick end with medium to l...read more

Invisible Wings

Phase Three Brewing

American Imperial IPA

9.1 by rich have another Invisible Wings by Phase Three Brewing

A: Gold and hazy. No floaters. Soft white foam head of normal retention. Looks appealing. S: Fresh clean aroma, Notes are lemon, grassy, and tropical fruits. T: Really well balanced. The malt sweetness, citrusy fruitiness, and hop bitterness are the perfect trifecta...none more pronounced than the other. As I drink farther into the tallboy can, I kinda get a pineapple like lingering taste. The abv at 7.8 is on the low side for a DIPA. Both mouthfeel and carbonation are fine. O: This is the f...read more

Charlatan

Maplewood Brewery & Distillery

American Pale Ale

From a can with date of 2019-07-19. Pours on the hazy side. Two fingers of pure white, wispy foam covers. Solid retention. Thin, sticky lacing is covers the sides. Aroma of fresh cut citrus: lemon, orange and grapefruit. Pine pinches the background. Hints of grain and sweetness. Taste carries the aroma. Sweet backbone from lightly grainy malts. Orange, lemon and grapefruit hops begin early, staying into the finish where they are joined by pine that gives a dab of crisp bitterness. Lig...read more

Free Range Brown Ale

Flyway Brewing Company

American Brown Ale

4.9 by scot have another Free Range Brown Ale by Flyway Brewing Company

Received the bottle 2-3 years ago in a trade. No date on bottle. Pours opaque from the deep, rich brown color. The light penetrates the edges enabling the brown hues within. Two inches of thick, creamy tan foam covers. Great retention, eventually leaving a thin, creamy head. Lacing is sticky and thick, beginning immediately. Aroma is nutty up front. Sweet brought on by brown sugar, molasses, and hints of dark fruits. The taste is a mess. It is hard to describe but it makes me think thi...read more

6.4 by scot have another Duality by Centerpoint Brewing Company

Going to be a quick review. No date on can to get an idea of age but it seems that the hops have fallen off. Bitter in the finish. Malt forward, nutty, but really not much in the hop department. I would like to try this one fresh. Enjoy!...read more
