Blueberry Nightmare Del Ducato, Italy
96 at Rate Beer! ONE TIME BREW!
9.5%
This beer is an extension of Del Ducato's Verdi Imperial Stout. My Blueberry Nightmare is a stout brewed with hot chili, then aged for 2 years in oak barrels with blueberries.
Sounds harmless enough, but the result is just crazy!!!! Words really cannot describe it...
Sour- funky- acidity...really in a world of its own! Opaque black in color with just a touch of carbonation (not much). Quite acidic and very intense! This nightmare is sure to leave a lasting nightmare!

Halcyon
98 by Ratebeer
7.7% abv - English Imperial IPA
This beer is similar to what original IPAs would
have been like back in the days in England.
Rich fruit and hop character in aroma. Chewy,
juicy malts and intense hoppiness coming
through in mouth with a hint of tangerine and
pear drops. Ends with a well-balanced bitterness.

The cask tasting will serve as a warm-up for the Thornbridge Brewmaster Dinner on Monday, May6th at Half Door Pub...
