    Good Morning NA drunks or Good Afternoon to our European brethern! It's a sunny morning but cold as hell here in NW PA. Well, I survived another 3.5 day conference in Pittsburgh and can finally post here again. Those sessions can be brutal! At least we hit Max's Allegheny Tavern three nights for dinner - excellent Americanized German food!

    Today's New Breakfast Beer:



    Really very decent brew but kind of odd - the peat and malt sort of cancel each other out...

    Oh my friggin God is this good. Absolutely hitting it’s stride at 2 weeks old, this Sand City/Sloop collab is everything a DIPA should be. And, exactly what I need after another overnight. Cheers.

    This morning ‘s coffee:



    Light coffee and cocoa. Very good, but no where near the Caliber of the Pirate BOMB I drank last night. I’ve had 2 of the 4 deconstructed stouts so far, both were enjoyable, and way too expensive for a lightly flavored (coffee in this case) Imperial Stout. Next time I see a “deconstructed” beer for sale, I’ll likely “decline”.

    I’ve got to start preparing the RV so I’m going to do a little this morning while it’s still coolish. Have a great Monday!

    Monday morning brew . . .

    [​IMG]


    This is not, I repeat not, a tart white wheat ale. Far from it, the flavor is rich and smooth with rounded depth. A spicy orange flavor is prominent but carries a dryness all the way to the finish. The malt is almost caramely but that may be partly due to the orange which remains a constant throughout. Simple flavors well interwoven, in short a class act.

    4.25/5 rDev +4.2%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

    Gentle pour yields a one and a half inch off-white head over an almost bright, slightly copper-hued golden body with some sticky lacing. Nose of funk and slight plum. Taste of sour and plum and very refreshing. Very nice carb and feel with a plum dry finish. Overall a real nice dry hopped sour. Cheers!

    2017 version.

    Oaky, tart, funk. I think because it's an older beer (9 months now?), I can't really taste the fruit anymore. If I didn't know it had peaches and raspberry in it, I wouldn't even have said it was fruited. But it's definitely good!

    Marshal Zhukov's Imperial Stout. The bad weather is a good occasion to open it. This one has been on my wish list for some years by the way. I finally ordered it online.

    Round #3
    Although one review referred to this beer as "burro urine", I believe it's rather nice and superior to all the other Mexican beers I've had to date (except Modelo Negra).

    This beer was brewed in January 2018 with an optimistic BB date of January 2019. Cheers!
