Poured from can into tulip, good 2+ finger cream colored head, good retention and lacing. Hazy golden in the glass. Getting very little on the nose, but my nose is jacked up :(. Taste is sweet malt, some grassy noble hops, but not picking up much more. Finishes with a good firm bitterness, no residual aftertaste, and somewhat dry. Easy drinker, but not much else going for it

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured from can into tulip, good 2 finger light tan head, and nice lacing. Dark rubish black color, minimal light gets thru. Slight candy sweetness on the nose, my nose isn't in the best shape now :(. Taste is sweet malt in the front, with hints of toffee, caramel, dark bread, and some slight dark fruit notes peeking thru. Finished off with a mild bitterness and on the dry side. A pleasure to drink, perhaps one of the better ones falling out of the advent calendar. Somewhat reminiscent of what I would look for in a session barley wine, the toffee/caramel notes are really nice.

Reminds me a lot of P3 Arabesque, but this is just better. Dark fruit & raisins upfront. Big chocolate. Oak & barrel char. Rye whiskey. Long finish of caramel, brown sugar, butterscotch. So thick. So smooth. No booze.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Look - poured into a tulip glass. light orange in color, hazy, with a beautiful three+ finger head and excellent lacing retention.

Smell - orange juice and elderflower. overall mild on the smell, but pleasant.

Taste - citrus flavors are there, with much more wheat presence than anticipated. a little bit of hops as well. finish is floral fragrance with some sweetness.

Feel - light bodied, above average carbonation, and on the lower end for ABV at 5%.

Overall - a light, crushable, but solid Belgian white that is a bit more floral than similar beers of the style.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
8 fl oz mini growler poured into Rastal Lawrence Deep Woods branded stemless glass.

Appearance: Dark brown bodied barleywine with a khaki colored head that stacks up to be 2 fingers tall. The head has good staying power and eventually drops to a ring around the glass.

Smell: The caramel goodness of Straight Jacket paired with a massive dose of vanilla aromas. Mature oak notes as well.

Taste: Big caramel. Even bigger vanilla. Just like the nose suggests. Nice little hit of earthy and spicy rye in the middle. Mature dry oak with light caramel & chocolate finish.

Mouthfeel: medium full bodied barleywine. Low and adequate carbonation. Smooth as usual straight jacket with not a hint of booze to be had.

Overall: This is straight jacket with amplified vanilla, oak, and some rye notes. Nice little variant of straight jacket.

This is brewed with New Zealand hops featuring Peacherine, plus Nelson and Simcoe. Huge aromatics of peach and papaya with a whiff of pine. Lovely sudsy mouthfeel that is mouth-filling but not overly carbonated. The Peacherine lives up to its name in total fruitiness and nectarine is the flavor. This is really a compelling hoppy brew with such clean flavors and clarity with a punchy hop that give NZ another gold star. From the 16 oz can purchased at Bine & Vine. Stamped "enjoy by 03/01/23" which I'm doing my best to fulfill.

Bottled 11/21.

A clear deep red with a pink head with good retention and lacing. The nose is excellent. Fruity with grape, dried cherry, mint, eucalyptus, mildly spicy and peppery. Moderate grape tannins. Earthy funk, minimal wood. The palate opens fruity and spicy, with grape, cherry, mild floral notes. Spicy, minty, mild eucalyptus notes lend a mild menthol like character. Drying, mildly tannic finish with limited oak presence. Briskly carbonated, but once it dies down, it's really supple and delightful.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque in the glass with a quarter finger khaki head that dissipates to a thick film with solid lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, vanilla, light cocoa and coconut. Flavor is dark toasted malt, vanilla, lactose, milk chocolate and a touch of coconut; chocolate and vanilla finish. Medium bodied with light to moderate creaminess; nice mouth feel. A full flavored porter with some milk stout character, probably from the vanilla. Nice chocolate balancing well with the vanilla. I'm not getting much coconut, although there is a trace in the taste, but little in the finish. The base porter stands on its own and actually doesn't need the extra flavor. Flavor density is quite good for the moderate ABV. Liked this a lot.

750ml cork & cage bottle poured int a snifter, I believe it's around a 2016 vintage

A- pours viscous jet black color with a one-finger foamy khaki colored head that reduces to a thin film floating on top, some lacing left behind

S- plenty of barrel to be found on the aroma, with notes of wet oak, barrel juice, caramel chews, vanilla bean and toasted coconut. The base beer gives aromas of charred malt, anise, dark chocolate & chocolate covered dark cherry

T- huge barrel notes up front, bursting with barrel juice & oak, followed by some sweet caramel and vanilla. Mid-palate brigs out the base beer with notes of chocolate, brownie batter, anise & dark cherries. The finish is nothing but bourbon, which continues long into the linger

M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues into a silky, velvety, slightly warming finish

O- I'm not sure how long this was aged, but it's a bourbon bomb. Definitely one for the bourbon sippers

Draft at PreFunk. Dark amber, opaque. Scent is mostly the pumpkin spice. Taste too, but body had some heft to it. Right in the wheelhouse, prefer ones that focus on the squash over the spice

Bomber from Albertsons. Dark brown pour with huge Rocky head. Mild roasty aroma. First sip had me thinking Porter. More roasty bitterness in the taste. But just that, roasty bitterness and nothing else. Kind of watery and thin.

Even out of the bottle I could smell the banana bread and dark-fruit flavors that people are talking about. In the taste it has a sort of champagne-y and fruitcake element which is interesting. Also very slightly acidic white wine note lurking in both aroma and flavor. A lovely winter beer that contrasts all those seasonal stouts.
