    I can't decide for which of the two I should be more excited. The fact that I am having a Hurricane or the fact that I am enjoying it in a Hoof Hearted All-Star #3 Teku which I've been trying to add to my collection since for ever... Thank you @smi69 for the beer!

    Good morning and good afternoon BAs! After yesterday's rains and tornado warnings, today is starting out sunny and bright. Today's New Breakfast Beer:



    Starts off average and ends up tasting like I've got a mouth full of mixed metals. Well, it's off to the kitchen drain.

    A beautiful morning and I'm in a cheerful mood . . .

    A medium golden color with more white cap than I usually get from a wheat ale.

    Aroma of soft malt with some citrus touches. A mild sort of scent but a pleasant one.

    Taste is soft malt at first followed by a dryish sort of citrus. Not tart and not sweet, rather nicely balanced in between. I get a definite hop hit in the back of the palate and lingering in the aftertaste.

    I finally got to try Parabola from Stone, a Russian Imperial Stout, ABV 12.70 IBU 40. It is hyped but very good. The flavor is roasted malts, caramel, it is sweet and significant bourbon, chocolate and vanilla, maybe some coffee. It's complex so it is hard to say exactly what it taste like but it is great. A truly great beer.

    I don't normally drink beer this early but when I do, it's usually because I'm cooking.
    I'm making a BEER Cheese dip from a recipe I found in Mexico while I was on vacation. It sounded interesting so here I go. You cook it in slow cooker. Couldn't just throw away a perfectly good Dale's Pale Ale because the recipe only calls for a 1/2 cup of beer.

    I'll share the results later. It'll be ready this afternoon. Time enough to get more Dale's Pale Ale.

    Worse soccer glass ever. Doesn't matter what beer I pour in it, you can't tell it's a soccer ball. Anyway, looking forward to some international soccer over the next month. Cheers 'till later.

    Crud, I goofed, I meant Firestone Walker. I also had just drank a Stone beer which I believe is why I goofed. I can't find the edit button. Just know it is Firestone Walker.

    Had this for a few months now, might as well drink it. Roasty with a swift kick to the gizzard. Not alcoholic tasting at all but there is an extremely bitter burnt coffee taste. Yum. Cheers folks!
    Sea Shanty to go with the brew!

    Took the day off for a field trip to the petting zoo for my sons preschool.
    Summer break and what not.

    Finishing off the last of these...



    Has alittle over 2yrs of age on it.
    Any type of coffe flavor has dissapeared.
    Straight up stout and burnt malt.
    Still some nice carbonation tho.

    Actually spiced things up with a coffee liqour shot. Just to add what was missing :blush::wink:

    CHEERS

    Splitting this with the wife. This is Tulsi Blue by Plan Bee out of New York. Nice tart blueberry flavor with some funk. Holy basil is noted but not overpowering- more herbal. Oak presence is dominating the flavor though, too much so at least in my opinion. Cheers all!

    My first proper Milkshake IPA was quite an interesting experience. I poured this very carefully at first, having read about floaters in the reviews here, which resulted in what I first perceived to be nothing but your average NEIPA.



    However, the final pour was quite milky and thick (no particulates), transforming the entire beer and really giving it that thick, creamy mouthfeel you would associate with a Milkshake IPA. Quite a bit of hop burn in the aftertaste as well, which I personally enjoy. Probably not very typical for the style though.

    Probably a good idea to shake this lightly before pouring, actually.



    (not the entire final pour, I already drank quite a bit before taking the picture)

    Cornet Oaked.
    Not oaked like on casks, but chips of oak were added during the brewing process. Nice heavy Belgian blonde.

    Like ‘Hazy’ also ‘Oak’ is still one of those marketing key-words around here. No non-oaked Cornet to be found for some time :slight_frown:

    Cheers!
