    Good morning BA, have a great Sunday! Not much going on, another normal Sunday with bottle returns, laundry, and a grocery run later on. Supposed to get some rain again today.

    This is awesome. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, berry, coconut, vanilla, marshmallow, cream, and citrus zest; with moderate honey, brown sugar, biscuit dough malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; very creamy/silky/bready malt/sugar mouthfeel; light hop sticky/resins. Lightly increasing lingering bitter dryness, no hop astringency. Very smooth, mildly warming 8.6%. This is a tad more bitter and less soft on the mouthfeel than the one I reviewed a few months ago. Awesome hop juiciness, balanced vanilla, sugars, and bready malts; not overly sweet/heavy. Would get again. I have a few DIPAs I still need to review from them.

    This is insanely amazing. BBA Serpents stout with cocoa/coffee. Aromas and flavors of huge nutty dark roast coffee, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, molasses, toffee, marshmallow, fudge, brownie batter, vanilla, bourbon, toasted oak, and dark bread; with lighter notes of coconut, licorice, smoke, leather, tobacco, and dark fruits. Touch of booze in the aroma as it warmed, but not overwhelming. Very mild roast bitterness and bourbon/oak spiciness on the finish. Mild carbonation and very full body; with an insanely rich, creamy, silky, and velvety mouthfeel that is amazing. Minimal chalky roast, oak tannins, or dryness. No cloying sweetness. Mildly increasing warmth of 13.5%, zero barrel booze. Dangerously smooth sipper. Mind blowingly rich and complex flavors. Amazing balance of fruity/nutty coffee, cocoa, and black/roasted malts; with perfect barrel integration. Not overly roasty on malts nor tannic on the barrels. I grabbed a couple more after I reviewed it, and will gladly do it again.

    Breakfast juice this morning courtesy of @SawDog505 - Breakaway Beerworks’ “RISE” a tasty DIPA:



    Really enjoyable! Tasty grapefruit/citrus peel bitter linger delivered to my tongue via a crisp, clean medium lite bodied liquid - I like!

    Cheers and have a great Sunday y’all!

    Amazing as usual this year. Aromas and flavors of huge mango, melon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, guava, berry, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, and pine hops; with moderate honey and spicy rye bread malt balance; and herbal, floral, grassy hops earthiness. Good sized pine, citrus rind, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Medium-plus bodied with balanced bready/grainy malts and sticky/resin/rindy hops in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing resin/rind dryness, minimal hop astringency. Very mildly warming ABV, dangerously smooth. Insane dankness across the board. This is basically just imperial Born Yesterday IMO, very similar if not the same hops. Ekuanot, Galaxy, Simcoe, and Mosaic was the first batch, probably similar here. This has all of the same dankness at a much higher ABV, while remaining well attenuated and not overly sweet for over 11.3%. Mosaic and Ekuanot are my favorite hops.

    Fantastic! Aromas and flavors of huge nutty medium roast coffee, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, toffee, coconut, cream, frosting, almonds, cake batter, and toasted dark/brown bread; with light notes of smoke, char, dark fruit, and herbal hops. Light herbal/spicy hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full body; very creamy/silky/bready malt mouthfeel; light slickness, sticky hops, and chalky roast. Lightly increasing lingering hop/char dryness. Never acrid/astringent. Mildly increasing warmth of 12.5%. Dangerously smooth. Wow this was really impressive. Super rich malt complexity with great fruity/nutty coffee presence, and some lactose/spices. This tastes exactly like Tiramisu stout but richer, so probably the imperial version. I keep grabbing more every time I see it!

    Being woken up by a sick five year old is not the best start to the day, but this helps.

    My last 2017 bottle is unsurprisingly pretty subdued, but still tastes fantastic. The pepper is still there in the finish but it’s mostly all chocolate at this point, and I’m not complaining. Gonna cap the second half for later. Hurting from last night, BA, lol, can’t lie. Cheers all.
