1) Widmer Brothers - Cherry Oak Dopplebock - 9.0% - Dated September 2009 so my guess is that this beer has had some time to calm down. This tastes more like a Quad to me and that is a good thing. Big on the raisins and cherries. Alchohol is well hidden. Good way to start the weekend.
2) Founders Brewing - Breakfast Stout - 8.3% - Nice jet black - No head. Chocolate in the nose but the taste is coffee+. Nice little sipper. Glad to have a hearty stout on opening NFL weekend!
3) New Holland Brewing - Mad Hatter IPA - 5.25% - Very solid American IPA. well balanced.
