    Day 4 brings me more haze from @corm44:


    This one is definitely an IPA and has some great citrus in the nose and taste.


    Equilibrium/Other Half Dreamwave Fluctuation. Thanks Dustyn!

    Day 4a from @jschott75
    [​IMG]
    Similar to day 1, but this is definitely a stout, thicker and more roasty. Gonna guess Rye barrel, but I've never seen the cap before.

    Another tasty new tick. Thanks Jim.
    Didn't make it to 4a. Let me know if I should open it with 5 or 6, or make it day 7 ?

    Day #4 went down last night while doing some work around the house:



    750ml bottle, stout for sure, getting chocolate and bourbon. Really sweet almost like a milk stout, reminds me of a bourbon candy bar.

    Cigar City - Sugarcoat

    Thanks @mervmurry, your birthday cake description totally fits this one.

    My day 4 finally ends with this - same beer as Sunday but different barrel. Pretty obviously rum and even more delicious than then bourbon variant. Thanks @JNForsyth

    Day 4...
    [​IMG]
    Silver capped 500ml has to be Hill Farmstead and even though it's cold I'm getting coffee & bourbon with a thick mouthfeel. Based on recent releases at HF I'll guess Genealogy of Morals

    Sorry, forgot to post Day 4 last night, courtesy of @JasonR1975 ... When I opened I swore it was an apple sour... but I was wrong, again...

    [​IMG]

    Arclight Soursmith Pear. This was delicious. Thx Jason

    I crushed another extra as well...

    The warmer the beer got the less coffee I could taste & it turned more chocolatey
    [​IMG]
    Turns out that my prediction was wrong & instead it's M&C b11 which has zero carb but a chewy mouthfeel with tons of chocolate & a good amount pf bourbon present as well. Thanks @oline73

    $20 a bomber. Well worth it in my opinion. But Hickory is a small town and there's only so many beer people in town :slight_smile: And since OHB is the only brewery in town, we don't get a ton of beer people coming from out of town except on release days.

    Day 5 from @PassMeAZima brings a 13% beer since I get to choose my own adventure. Smells very boozy upon pouring. It's definitely a thick barrel aged stout with strong chocolate flavors.

    [​IMG]

    I'm going to guess Ethereal - Baba Yaga since that's the brewery t-shirt I received with my box and it matches what I know about it.

    [​IMG]

    Chocolate Sea Salt Baba Yaga is the correct answer. This beer is incredible. I absolutely love the chocolate in it. Definitely my favorite so far. Thanks, Jason.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Nope.. another stout lol.. as this warms the sweet maple notes come out, the cinnamon Adds a nice finish... on the sweeter side with a light barrel.. really like this, no clue what it is!
    [​IMG]

    This was just plain Abraxas not the Vanilla Bean one

    Day 5 from @PA-Michigander
    A spiced stout of some kind.

    I"m not thinking of many places that use what looks like a 500 ml bottle for stouts.

    Day 5 is here. A smaller format but has that pain in the ass HF cap.



    A fruited Flora for sure.

    Wow this is delicious.

    Thanks @NJB145

    Day 5 ....

    [​IMG]

    A corked 375 ml that pours a nice ruby red color dark cherry and sweet raspberry dominate the nose followed by a hint of hay funk to finish. On the palate the fruit shines and presents a balance of bold cherry, tart raspberry and balanced acidity followed by some present funk as the fruit slides off the palate. Even without peeking at the cork as I pulled it, it's pretty easy to tell that this one is Spon Cherry+Raspberry. Thanks @rspauldi as usual you are killing it.

    Well the striped foil on the neck tells me it's a bruery beer. Definitely a boozy BA stout. One taste and I had a feeling I had a black Tuesday on my hands. Good thing I wasn't planning on driving anywhere.

    When I opened it I thought it was Gueuze with pretty significant hippiness too it. So I guessed some kind of dry hopped gueuzy...

    I guess I was kind of close?? Maybe?? It was damn goo regardless. Thx Jason!
