Weekend Beer Review

Gettin...right to it.....

1) Victory - Yakima Twilight - 8.7% - Nice summer harvest hop beer. Was hoping to have had this at Mugs on tap last night but to no avail. Glad to have found this in bottle. By the way their belgian fest next weekend looks interesting.

2) De Dolle Brouwers - Special Oerbier Reserva - 13% - Needed this one like a hole in the head to start my afternoon walk. It says aged in oak barrels and refermented in the bottle. Very fruit, cherry tartness would probably be the best description. Pretty damn potent.

Just got back from DiCicco's where I brought back a growler of Captain Lawrence IPA (I believe of the imperial variety) very tasty. This fill won't last long. Noticed a bottle of Sam Adam's Utopia. $199 for a bottle.

Three Floyds - Some of the tasty treats

Enjoyed my trip to Three Floyds Brewing on the way to the hotel the day before Uconn/ND Football. I think my favorite of the ones I had was Gumball Head.

Weekend beer review

It's a rainin' and I ain't a walkin'

1) Moylans - Double IPA - 8.5% I think I like this better than their Hopsickle. You can really taste the alcohol and the hops are very piney. Very dry and very good!

Just heard the Gator & Adam are in Syracuse headin' to the Blue Tusk.....god help that bar! Gator's been on a pretty good beer run lately. Hoping to follow suit!

2) Moylans - Kilt Lifter Scotch Style Ale - 8.0% - I really don't like Scotch Ale's. I'm done with this style.

3) McNeill's Champ Ale - 5.5% brought for me by my friend Wendy from the Peoples Republic of Vermont! I was suprised at this as I did not expect the hoppiness to approach the citrus taste like my favorites from California. This is good enough where I might be tempted to do a little exploration in Vermont to search out some other gems. Very good session beer.

Hindenburg Beer

auctioned or to be auctioned. I wonder if a piney will buy it.

Weekend beer review

And boy will they be coming. With the cask festival @ the brazen head my liver will be suing for divorce by Sunday.

1) Troegs Java Head - 7.5% - Oh boy one of the better stouts I've had. Almost refreshing given the abv. Is 7.5% to low to cellar?

2) Allagash - Odyssey - 10.4% - Belgian Strong Ale - Dark in color, caramel & malty. Very smooth & drinkable which is scary at 10.4%

3) The Bruery - Black Orchard - 5.7% Good session beer nice flavor will go back to this again. Available year round....probably more of a summer beer.
