New Dogfish Head/Sierra Collaboration

Rhizing Bines - Clocking in at 8%.  Supposedly some sort of expiremental hop was used.  My contribution to science is thus noted.

Ok back to laziness

The Bee'rd Brewing co from Stonington, Fruition.  Double IPA clocking in at 8% plus.  Brewery to be reckoned with.

Weekend Beer Review!

Back to a more traditional format (for a now)

1) Thimble Island Brewing Co. - Coffee Stout -  5.5% - New CT. brewery in Branford, nice but a bit watery.  Need to work on the body.  Will probably head back for their DIPA when it arrives.

2) Mayflower Brewing Co - IPA - 7% - Not bad, freshness sate on the bottle said it was from 2/5/13 so this was very fresh.  May buy again.

Snow Bound

In Bridgeport the roads are filled with snow.  In Fairfield, clear.....oh well  Darkness was from last night which has been previously chronicled.  Bourbon County Cherry Rye is new.  This beast clocks in at 13.70%.  Slight rye and cherry feel.  This might have been overpowering when it was fresh.  Not bad now.

Another top 100 Beer Bites the dust

Finally received the elusive Black Note - Poured into a Bell's Snifter

A - Jet Black with a thin brownish head. Minimal lacing.

S - Outstanding - bourbon comes right through.

T - Bourbon of course, coffee, chocolate and some nice drak fruit. There is a real nice semi sweet chocolate finish at the end. A bit of the oak and burnt sugar are noted as well.

M) - This is so smooth and in regards to other style offerings this is where this stands out. Absolutely no harshness!

O) An outstanding beer, very easy to drink - this will cause a commotion if it ever hits the New York area.

For Whom the Bell('s) tolls!

Got a lot of beer in the fridge, going outside isn't an option....let's rock!
