  1. That sucks. Does it seem just bad warm or infected?
  2. I'm working my way through a six pack of Irresistible Amber from Madison River Brewing. So far, I'm finding it pretty resistible.

    Had a Two Brothers Brown Fox earlier. Now sipping on this, found it hiding in the back of the fridge.

    I'm sorry for your loss; it's truly the loss of a family member and I hope the good memories continue to bring more smiles outweighing the bad times bring sadness!!!

    I'm unfamiliar with infected beer, but I have a hard time believing this is how it's supposed to taste...each sip is better than the next...I may pour this in the sink and eat some toothpaste.

    I am getting some tartness...not sure I'd go so far as to call it sour...perhaps a hint of vinegar...mouthfeel is about what I expect for the style...most of the unpleasantness is concentrated at the back end and the aftertaste is relentlessly bad...hint of metallic taste in there actually...extremely unpleasant aftertaste for me...just completely offensive. It still tastes decent up front...but the lingering foul aftertaste is beginning to underpin it all...will give it another shot...but not this year.

    don't forget the celebration son!
  18. It might be starting to turn or it just might not be something you would like. I am not a big fan of Black IPA's due to the clash of the roast and hops, a hoppy stout would be similar.

    I actually dig some hoppy stouts and black IPAs. I'm really starting to think this may be infected...which sucks...because it started so strong for me. I'm feeling pretty disappointed right now...glad I only bought the one.

    Nice night of ratings:

    Damn good as expected. Certainly is a great choice seeing as it is available everywhere including shitty restaurants.

    Really nice stuff. Well balanced and complex with herbs. I love saisons

    Very good. Not as hoppy as I would have hoped, but very nicely balanced and drinkable

    Excellent Tripel. Very complex with fruity flavors and spot on balance of spicy yeast esters.
