1) Evil Twin Brewing - Imperial Biscotti Break - 11% This finally hit the NYC area in bottles, Pours a very nice black and with a swirl of the glass you get a nice brown hue. Little carbonation noted. The taste is really great. Outstanding balance between coffee, chocolate, vanilla and anise. Such a desert beer. Don't age this, drink it fresh if you can!
Well done! Another top 100 beer ticked!
2) Ommegang - Scythe & Sicle - 5.8% - Biere De Garde - This is a welcome respite from the usual pumpkin ale/octoberfest nonsense. This should be a recurring seasonal beer.
3) Bootlegger's Brewery - Black Phoenix - 6.7% - Chipotle Coffee Stout. Has some really nice Chocolate & Coffee notes with a nice slight pepper burn. Nice beer!
4) Half Acre - Daisy Cutter Pale Ale - Wow what a hop bomb! Exceptional!
