    Review Revisit night Friday

    Really nice this year. Glad I got the second 6'er. Taste of lightly tart lime, biscuit, graham cracker, toast, vanilla, cream, light caramel, and herbal earthiness. Nicely robust and balanced malt, lime, lactose and other adjunct flavors; with a light hop balance. Lightly tart finish with minimal bitterness. Super tasty.

    Really good robust porter. Last time I revisited this I got an old bottle that was awful; not this time. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, nuttiness, light smoke, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of roast/herbal hop bitterness on the finish. Nice complexity of the roast/bready malts. Very enjoyable.

    Awesome Black IPA. The malts weren't as robust as I recalled. Taste of big juicy pineapple, peach, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine; with moderate chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, light coffee, light char malts. Nice pine/roasted bitterness on the finish. Smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel. Delicious.

    No idea on exact age, but West point Market in Akron OH dates their price tags.... 11/1/2012. Absolutely insane!! Taste of huge raisin, prune, fig, cherry, caramel, toffee, toast, molasses, brown bread, nuttiness, chocolate, cocoa, light smoke, leather, tobacco, herbal, and earthy yeast notes. Incredible complexity, balance, and smooth sipping for 10%. Top tier Wee Heavy as I felt last time. I have the BBA in the cellar I got in a trade last month. SOON. I also need to buy more of this some time.

    Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout. It's the last of my 'vacation beers'. I bought several bombers of different beers before going on my trip to the beach and this is the last one (sniff). Nice beer to have when I got home though!

    new holland's dragon's milk. i get why people aren't BCBS wowed by this beer, but i feel like comparing it to the heavy hitters misses the point... it wants to be smooth, with a really well rounded, delicious flavor. there's subtle bourbon and oak, and a really silky stout underneath.

    my cheap, low-attention-span ass bought a 4pack of this stuff, and i don't regret it at all. to put this in context, i've felt buyer's remorse over buying a whole 4pk of 1week old bell's two hearted cans.

    A little beer with my bread and butter. The butter in front was smoky, like a rauchbier. Pretty cool.
