    Never even heard of this brewery, but my friend gave me it for free. This was a delicious English brown ale. Great rocky head retention/foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, roasted nuts, brown bread dough/crust, and toasted biscuit malts; with lighter notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, raisin, plum, fig, pear, red apple, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. A bit muted aromas. Light-moderate herbal, floral, grassy, peppery, roasted bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body; creamy/bready/grainy malts, some sticky hops, and light chalky roast in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing bitter dryness, no cloying/astringency. Very smooth, 5.2%. Very flavorful for the ABV. Great rich and well rounded English malt complexity; with restrained fruity English yeast, and balancing earthy hops against sweetness. Spot on stuff for the style. 3.91

    While Enjoying this amazing video on how the Sauvin beer glass is made. I have a new found interesting in glass blowing, I find the whole process exciting and interesting. And it's so cool how each glass has it's own identity and feel. I own two of them and alternate between them deepening on my mood. Not to mention the end result is outstanding!

    Cheers BAs!

    The delicious flavor in just one sip lingers for a couple minutes. The 16.6% is barely noticeable, but I will TRY take a couple hours to enjoy this amazing Ralphius from @thebeers (thank you!) and brewed by Free Will Brewing.

    Proven Theory. An IPA brewed by Bench Top. Courtesy of daughter #1. Ignore the cans in the far background. I did not drink them. Shipping them out tomorrow. Just letting them rid themselves of condensation.

    This black IPA is tasting quite pleasant. It's nice to be able to drink this style more often again.

    Probably my last for a Sunday, as I have dinner duty and that means wine later.
    SO, cracked this: OB Can o Bliss (tropical?) IPA. I'm with most folks on this - it's interesting, decent aromatics, and a good CO interpretation of very good west coast tropical (hop) IPAs but it doesn't necessarily stand out.
    Had it last week on tap at the OB restaurant, decided to try a sixer of it. Cheers!
    A little "Bliss" to accompany this IPA... enjoy...

    New Dark Horse Pumpkin/Cookie porter. This was fantastic! Lasting head retention/thick lacing. Aromas and flavors of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, toffee, pumpkin, cookie dough, fudge, roasted nuts, and toasted dark bread; with lighter notes of vanilla, cream, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, charcoal, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine, herbal, grassy, peppery hops; and roast/charcoal bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; very creamy, silky, velvety, bready malts; some sticky hops and chalky/char roast in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering hop/char bitter dryness; no acrid/astringency. Super smooth, minimal warming 7%. Very rich body for the ABV. Amazing well rounded malt complexity, with balanced pumpkin, chocolate chip cookie flavors, and earthy hops against sweetness. Spot on American style porter. You can really taste the cookies! 4.28

    I'm old, I've listened to this since 1974 and will prolly request it to be a top 5 song at my funeral. Steve Hunter and Dick Wager absolutely killed the intro, I could loop it for hours. Hope everyone had a great, albeit to fast weekend.......

    Tell Henry (Monkish) that the Hunter says peace. Raul, on a serious note, I've been at your crib now for three hours. There's random women coming in and out like it's some kind of hotel. Is there something you want to tell me about tonight's festivities?

    First time with this classic in a couple of years. I don't know if it's because I had some stellar Grimm earlier in the day, but it's not really doing it for me. I seem to remember it being much more fruity and round in the past; maybe my palate has just moved on?

    I love Nugget Nectar, but to go from the house of hops like Grimm to NN is not fair. I hope you got more than that can, start off with that next time.

    Your palate has probably moved on. This is the worst aspect about the craft journey, in my experience. Beers that were once great somehow become mediocre.

    Only one more, and then I'm done. Going out with a bang (I think), with a BCBS Bramble Rye I managed to pick up on Friday.
