    Nice! If I didn't overdo it yesterday I'd be joining you :grin:. Cheers!

    If you're into that kind of beer you'll have to check out the 4 packs of Crooked Stave Hop Savant. Could be a real game changer, and I'm hoping that they catch on.

    Good evening BA, hope everyone had a good Monday back to work. Pretty slow work day overall, had a morning meeting and not much else. Listened to pandora all day again.

    Today's reviews:

    Delicious German pils. Amazing head retention and lasting soapy lacing, crystal clarity. Aromas and flavors of cracker, white bread dough, and lightly toasted biscuit malts; with some herbal, grass, light peppery noble hops. A bit fruity/yeasty aromas, but not overwhelming. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation, light-medium body, and moderately crisp/clean finishing. Bready/grainy malts and some sticky hops in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing bitter dryness. Perfectly clean lager flavors, never yeasty. Very flavorful/refreshing, 4.9%. Other than the muted aromas, this is really spot on style. Nothing but clean Pils malt and balancing noble hops. Never aggressively bitter, nice malt body for the ABV. 3.91

    Very nice Black DIPA. Great head retention and soapy lacing on the glass. Flavors of big tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, and pine hops; with balanced dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toasted dark bread, smoke, and charred malts; with herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Similar/muted aromas. Light-moderate pine/citrus rind/herbal/grassy hop and roast/charred bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; balanced creamy/silky/bready malt, sticky/resin/rindy hops, and chalky char/roast in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing bitter/char dryness. Light lingering acrid roast and hop astringency, but not overwhelming. Fairly aggressive, but easy drinking. Minimal warming 7.9%. Really enjoyable and well made. Likely Columbus/Centennial hops, with great balance of rich black/charred malt complexity. Really spot on stuff. I like when the roast malts are well showcased in the style. 3.88

    Awesome fruited NEDIPA. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus zest, and light pepper/pine hops; with wheat, white bread dough, light honeyed malt balance; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Very mild pine/herbal/grassy/zesty bitterness and tangerine tartness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body; bready/grainy malts, some sticky hops, and mild citrus acidity in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering bitter dryness, no hop astringency. Extremely drinkable from the super soft mouthfeel. Minimal warming 8%. Super juicy hops/fruit with light dankness; great pale/wheat malt balance, with minimal residual sweetness. Definitely some Galaxy/Mosaic hops going on with this. Would buy again. 4.1

    This was awesome! Fantastic lasting head retention and thick soapy lacing on the glass. Aromas and flavors of big lemon, raisin, plum, fig, pear, red apple, berry, coriander, cardamom, juniper, spruce, ginger, peppercorn, peppers, lavender, hibiscus, leather, and tobacco; with balanced caramel, maple syrup, brown sugar, toasted brown bread, and light molasses/cocoa malt sweetness; some herbal, floral, grassy spice and yeast earthiness. Mild herbal/grassy bitterness and peppery spiciness on the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; very creamy/bready/silky malt mouthfeel; light slickness and herbal spice stickness. Lightly increasing lingering spicy dryness, no cloying. Mildly increasing warmth of 13.7%. Damn, this drinks like a super spiced up American Barleywine. So much going on, but it is perfectly balanced. Nothing feels overwhelming or out of place. Glad I was finally able to try one of these. They are always spiced differently every single year. 4.13

    Hops or roasted barley .... hops or roasted barley ... it's a tough call for a night cap. A refrigerator freshly stocked with IPAs made the decision for me.

    Some fall off pretty quickly and some do not. I tend to avoid those that I have had or heard about falling off fast-for example this year's Hopslam from a report I had deteriorated pretty fast.

    A beer that I completely blanked out on having, Tomorrow Who’ Gonna Fuss is a triple dry hopped triple ipa that’s now 2 months old. Pretty freaking smooth for 10%, it’s got an herbal dankness that’s nice. Probably last post of the evening so see yas on the flip side. I’m shot.

    I wanted something dark to close out the night and it was between this and an Avery Tweak.(only 2 chilled) Considering the Tweak is 17.5%, I thought this was the better choice on a school night. Glad I grabbed another 4pk also.

    Taking this backyard brew for a test drive and will be only the 3rd review for this beer. Pretty decent but over priced for what it is. However, I will always support my backyard / local brewery whenever I can.

    Well, I leaned hops instead of stout ... so I'm back, because I love them both. :grinning:

    As any late viewer of this thread may have noticed, I'm pretty poor at determining when I'm done, especially earlier in the night. So .... Narwhal. Yeah. Narwhal. :wink:

    Brau Brothers Maple Bacon Bancreagie, Peated Scotch Ale, 7.5% ABV. Pours dark brown/copper, with 2 finger off-white head. Nose is maple and bacon/hickory smoke. Taste follows, moderately sweet, smokey, and very light bitterness. Outstanding mouthfeel, overall outstanding.

    I really did not expect much here, given that I paid the store $1 for a one month old 32oz grumbler that was taking valuable space in their cooler. I mainly got it for the $4 bottle, figuring if the beer sucked I'd dump it and have a cheap grumbler bottle. I was worried that it would be flat, but it really popped when opened, and the beer is outstanding. I'll be dumping the rest, down my throat.

    Judged Belgian Strings this Saturday at a homebrew comp. Had to get one of the best to wash away the lingering date syrup I had to drink. So damn good.
