I like this because of the Can Family. I'm sure the beer isn't bad neither!
This is good. Have you had King Titus yet?
Finishing up my Apex - totally great DIPA from Bear Republic
Great bitterness, pine resin and citric pith; hearty malt bill gives it some chewiness and heft.
Gonna close out Viking-style (I'm looking at you, Ragnar Lothbrok) with a double shot from the mighty Amon Amarth
War of the Gods off Surtur Rising, and Twilight of the Thunder God from the album of the same name.
Cheers, brothers and sisters!
This can't be the season finale of True Detective already, please say it ain't so! This fantastic beer helps...
Didn't make the drive, but was hoping that you got a pour for the haul you made.
Sue is kick ass indeed!
Season finale of True Detective. Had to bust out a good one!
I got there at 12:25 and the Keg was cashed.. but some nice BA's shared their MD.
I had plenty of the King Sue… may be the best DIPA currently
Just logged on.
This is all pretty shocking news and I'm not sure Mr. TongoRad is making theses statements freely on his own. "Weight loss"? "...let's go out in style!" Come on!!! I fear foreign governments, domestic black ops, Slim Fast, or Weight Watchers are at work. I guess we'll find out April 1.
Wisconsin, I'm drinkin your beer and watching your college B-ball team. One is killin it, the other is getting killed!
This is killin it for me.
Drinking Shock-Top Chocolate Wheat.
Not yet. Amazing?
I was listening to that one too! Cross the Heartland is another all-time fave track. That band, and those shows in the late 70s were something to behold. Great music, great times.
A year and two months+ Goose Island Matilda I aged. Freakin thing gushed out. It tastes better than fresh, though.
California Dreamin' with Alpine Keene Idea
Drinking this outstanding brew and watching Cosmos.
Is it! Look at this. http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/maine-beer-king-titus/187418/145949/
Good to hear someone shared the MD with you, which is what I was referring to.
That one is off the hook.
Another juice bomb. Last one of these I have...good night, sweet prince.
Love MBC Mean Old Tom, just an easy drinking tasty stout! Cheers!
Gotta like this one...I'm wearing the t-shirt right now, haha.
I dunno, man- I might not be the same person in 23 days (not that I'm counting or anything).
It's too late to turn back now, anyway- promises were made, blood oaths were sworn, all the hoppy beers in the house have been dispensed. How that happened, I am not at liberty to divulge, but the wheels are definitely in motion. Perhaps I've said too much already...
My local grocer down the street had fresh Odell this morning so I had to buy a sixer since this beer is about a 98 for me when it is (fresh). Cheers!
So what you're saying is, "I really like guys named Dale who differ from the normal, accepted standards of society." That darn missing punctuation before the "s" changed the entire game! Sort of like:
Lets eat Grandma!
Lets eat, Grandma!
Commas save lives!
(I know, I know ... I'm bein' a d*ck! )
Currently drinking a 5.7% pale ale from Cellarmaker Brewing Co (all my pics are shot with their pint glass usually) in SF called Questionable Origins #3. Hop bill is New Zealand Riwaka and South African Southern Passion. Straight up heavenly....
Drinking this gem, sent my way courtesy of my man @haveanother1 . Incredible as always. Thanks man!
Tale of two Flemish Red Ales: The Duchesse De Bourgogne 4.6 (wine like, complex, must try again) blew away Rodenbach 3.5 (cider like, thin & flat, didnt finish).
Duchesse De Bourgogne 4.6
Look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
My first Flemish sour, and a favorite.
A: The look is a 5. Deep, dense, thick, lasting tan head that lasts forever, starting as a pillowed crown and becoming a weathered sand castle.
Ruby Brown body, loads of lacing. A perfect pour.
S: puts you into the wine cellar with all the smells, wine, wine spills, oak, char, sawdust, concrete floor, mold, humidity, age.
T: This is three beers in one and so even at $7 a bottle is reasonable value. Smooth, soft, and tannic like wine. Chewy like wine, with body, in concert sweet and sour, fruit and malt, twin forces arise to treat your mouth to an utterly new sensation totally gratifying. 10s of flavors (as evidenced by the review) but dominant are burgundy pinot noir, cherry, balsamic, and jam. It rides on sweet bread and despite all this meditation complexity, it finishes clean. This is a must try, and a much try! One of my favorite firsts ever.
F: Leaves your mouth in a lovely kissing place like a great chewy wine or beer. You must let it warm. Also I drank my first one at the same pace as I'd drink 2 glasses of wine. Very slowly. And getting closer and closer to 55 degrees.
A-bro wrote " I must pause for a moment and thank the beer gods …Top of my list, an art performance… " I agree!
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
The other Rodenbach styles are rated 100. However, this one not much for me.
A: I poured it several times to study the head because it seemed the bottle had gone flat despite a 12/17/14 date. On 2nd pour, aggressively into a tulip, a nice dense foamy tan head appeared. But it failed to last and atfer that it leaves some dotty lacing, and again feels thing and flat.
Murky, muddy, red-brown body.
Smell: I get cider, decaying wood, vinegar, and prunes. I dont get enough malt and fruit. I dont get enough complexity or strength, but it betters as it warms.
Taste: Follows the smell dominated by cider and fruit balsamic vinegar. Some oak, and hard underneath. Hint of vanilla? Got to let it warm, but it never rises above prune cider for me.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Low carbonation. Slightly sticky mouth feel, but not cloying.
Drinkability: A half portion might be ideal aperitif. Otherwise, I put this aside to drink a more approachable beer profile and finish it at a warmer temperature. Definitely want to split it with some one, or maybe even save it to cook with tomorrow.
I prefer beers that I want to finish now
Forgot I had this…
Nope, right the first time. I like my dales to be their own people. Screw the mainstream. What I don't approve of is sexual deviant dales...they end up on dateline.
You can do it @TongoRad !!!
Don't be a stranger!!
I've decided, stouts are my go to style while watching The Walking Dead.
*Gasp* You're..... one of them.
Stumbled upon this local beer while traveling… Pimpin' Peanut Butter Porter
Good job Zack and Jeff! @Knapp85 & @jzeilinger
I will stare temptation in the face on a daily basis!!!
Blood oath. That's very serious. Then DO IT!!!!!
Channel the same passion as you do with great beer. Return triumphantly and take your place at the head of the table with a fine and rich Bavarian Doppelbock.
Forthwith, keep it to ONE great ale a night, (that includes 750ml's) after April 1. Now have daily salads, low fat dressing, fruit in the a.m., low fat EVERYTHING, no sweets until you right the ship, fish, chicken, moderation, basic vitamins, lots of sex...with or without your partner, etc.
Purposefully walk a couple miles a day, modest exercise and stretching in the a.m.
Done preaching. Well, it all worked for me, and I never stopped drinking a great beer each night because that's too important mentally.
Best of luck!
One of "them" what?
