    Enjoying a Celebration with round 2 after having a Foothills Sexual Chocolate with round 1 which surprisingly was a heavy roasted and hopped imperial stout with a light touch of cocoa adjunct. Turned out to be much better than expected.
    Cheers!

    Leinenkugel's Toasted Bock, 5.1% ABV. Pours dark brown, with a one-finger beige head that left no lacing on the fine plastic cup. Nose is toasted malt. Taste is toast, faintly bitter. Excellent mouthfeel, overall excellent.

    3.99/5 rDev +9.3%
    look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

    This was a free beer I got with my hotel room in Chippewa Falls, WI, home of Leinenkugel's. I suspect that the brewery provides these at most/all hotels in town. I had a choice of others, but this sounded good, and it was. Just occurred to me - I paid for two rooms, should have gotten two beers.

    Agreed - it's a bit different than most other brown ales too. Uniquely Berkshires.

    [​IMG] Tonight’s Blind Battle Beer Tasting Lineup:

    1) Alaskan Winter Ale (6.4%): A Winter Warmer from Alaska with flavors of dark bread malt, sweet grape, and chocolate. Malty, yet drinkable.
    versus
    2) Deschutes Jubedale (6.7%): A Winter Warmer from California that has flavors of citrus, roasted caramel, and bitter pine.
    versus
    3) New Belgium Holiday Ale (7.5%): A Winter Warmer from Colorado with flavors of cranberry and cinnamon spices.

    4) Hubbard’s Cave Fresh IIPA One Hop Simcoe (8.5% canned 8/17/22): A NEIPA from Illinois with Simcoe for flavors of resinous tangerine, earthy grapefruit, and a smooth malty body.
    versus
    5) Toppling Goliath Soul Hunter (7.8% canned 9/8/22): A NEIPA from Iowa with Simcoe Cryo and Riwaka for flavors of sweet orange flower, pineapple, and mango.
    (mismatched #1 and #2 blind, correctly matched the rest)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Winners:

    1) Alaskan Winter Ale: New Belgium drinks like an autumn harvest tea with cinnamon spices, but not quite my "cup of tea". Jubedale drinks much more bitter and piney than I remember.... maybe even up the alley of Celebration. If Alaskan Brewery can do one thing that is make malty beers. This one has tons of dark bread, toasted flavor with some smooth chocolate notes within. Lots of flavor, yet a drinkable ABV.

    5) Toppling Goliath Soul Hunter: Approaching three months out and still drinking at top quality. Nice balance of sweet orange, pineapple, and mango balanced by the bitter floral notes. It may be getting even better with some age on it. Simcoe and Riwaka are a great combination here.

    Told myself I wouldn't buy any BCBS this year because I just don't need it. Have too much from previous years...but now I'm feeling left out.

    Breaking out some 14 from last year to compensate. Tasting quite good actually. Cheers!

    Catching up on email while enjoying this beer from @Coronaeus. Very good Marzen.

    Also exhausted from watching USMNT game. Great result, but man was that last 20 minute or so stressful.

    Phantom Canyon Brewing Co. -- 2022 Bourbon Barrel-Aged Barleywine
    Traditional English-style barleywine aged for 3 months in Elijah Craig '14 Year' barrels
    ABV: 10.5%; ouring temperature: 41 °F; bottling info: 2022; Limited Bottle Release #49 of 172

    [​IMG]

    4.05/5 rDev 0%
    look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

    Deep garnet hued body; dense carbonation; less than one-finger thick head yet dense, creamy, and light khaki colored; nice sheets of foam coat the interior glass. Mild toffee notes with white oak on the nose. Big malt flavor; caramel and light toffee; light brown sugar and vanilla; fairly bold bourbon element emerges halfway through the taste; earthy sweetness. Heavy body; smooth and velvety; fairly intense alcohol warmth percolates through the residual sugars.

    This English-styled barleywine is a fine sipper. Just the base beer would have been nice. I would like to try this one with a year or so of aging to see if it would have tamed the barrel-aging a bit. It has some intensity now that being dialed back a bit would round out the character and overall enjoyment of the beer.

    Old Combine 4 Grain Lager by Moonlight Brewing

    [​IMG]
    3.93/5 rDev -0.5%
    look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

    Can received in a Lif associated in Bif16 from @Beersnake1

    Brewers notes: Oats, rye, wheat and barley give this lager an unusually rich and intriguing mouthfeel. Just the perfect zing of hops brings these grains to vibrancy!

    American lager has little in the way of hop and malt character. A straw to gold, very clean and crisp, highly carbonated lager. Hop aroma and flavor are low to medium-low, deriving from noble-type hops. Hop bitterness is medium. Toasted, biscuit-like, and/or bready malt flavors along with low levels of fermented-malt-derived sulfur compounds may be evident.

    Canned on 10.5, opened 11.29

    Creamy , fluffy , long lasting off white frothy cap lazily lingers over a clear golden liquid with numerous carbonation streams . Very good retention , spotty lacings, settles to a thin layer

    Aroma is spicy, malty , grains

    Taste is malty, rye, spicy notes , the rye seems to dominate , biscuity

    Sudsy mouthfeel , hop nibble on the finish

    Good beer

    I don’t know where our athletic got the idea we’re a west coast school** with 9pm tipoffs, especially given our general hubris about the level of academics at the university:

    Going to have a couple beers tonight, starting with this one

    Couldn't find Colt 45, which was always a joke she hated; we would say it was her drink. A faux pas we never let her forget.


    This one always hits so close to home, almost like they wrote it for her.
