    Hazy golden color with white cap.

    The aroma first struck me as sweet malt overlain with citrus and floral scents. It was after I read the label I realized those were due to the Kaffir lime leaves, ginger and chamomile. These scent tones are not strong by any means, rather sort of mild and very pleasant.

    Taste is medium bodied sweet grain with the citrus-floral influence present from start to finish. Rather simple flavors but well combined in a way that each complements the other. There is also a spicy element highlighted by the Belgian yeast notes of ripe yellow fruit and clove. A relaxing and pleasing combination.

    Still fighting a cold. I took yesterday off (from drinking), and I'm starting today light. I don't feel bad enough to need meds, so I think that covers it, as long as I stay hydrated.

    Well, back to the land of liars, cheaters, and stealers; cold weather; and soon-to-be no Bell’s beer.

    Figured I’d grab this flagship of theirs while I still can.

    I’m sure there will probably be some around in two weeks, but, no time like the present.

    I brought this bottle back from London to share with the bar owner - a Cloudwater/JWB collab - “Present That’s Not Me”, a 13% Imperial Stout, BBA for 16 months:



    OMG! Aromas of bourbon sweetened raisins.
    Taste follows!

    7.6% IPA hopped with Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic.

    I love this interpretation of WC/NE fusion. It's like citrus, sweet yeasty on the initial palate and then transitions into a classic dry WC bitterness to finish that makes you want to take another sip.

    Great Divide's 'Yeti'



    4.38/5 rDev +4%
    look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

    Dark depths of opaque colors make up the body; head is dense, sticky and rocky; spidery webs of foam adhering to the glass. Deep charred and roasted grain aroma; dark coffee; cocoa. Full-on bitter chocolate flavor incorporating a strong grain husk and hop bitterness. Heavy body with lots of residual sugar heft; sludgy and velvety; mild sweetness yet overall dry feel from midpoint to the finish.

    An incredibly rich and dense beer, not too sweet and fairly bitter.

    Good afternoon BA
    Every time I drink a beer that's great, but easily obtainable, I shame myself for how long it's been...

    Dark Horse really knows their way around dark beers. Their black ink on bottle dating system keeps me from trying any IPA from them. I also picked up a single of the barrel aged for an upcoming NBS. Cheers all!

    Now up Allagash Coolship Resurgam from August 2016, the Cantillon was better. This is earthier and more sour, where the Cantillon was softer, had more oak and I like the funk better in it, cheers!

    The 3rd of 4 different cans from my TH guy.

    [​IMG]

    Canning date: 01/17/19.
    Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over a cloudy/murky golden body with some sticky lacing. Nose of citrus (orange, tangerine, and ruby red grapefruit), tropical fruit (mango, guava, papaya), and the slightest dank pine. Taste mirrors nose very closely with a finish of light sweet citrus pith under all that juicy fruit. Very nice feel and overall, yeah, I'm real glad I got to try this; and cheers to Rob for the hookup!!!
