    One of the best beers we've had in quite some time. So, so bitter, but in all the right ways.


    Cheers all!!

    Looking forward to a March beer run to Cleveland! Do you know if the glass will be reissued or does the Godzilla copyright cover that as well?

    That "Bockzilla" glass is at least 20 years old.....from the original Western Reserve Brewing co. in Cleveland; Black Box Brewing in Westlake bought the rights to several now defunct local beers / breweries, including this one.....I do not think they have any plans to re-issue the glass, but not 100% sure....I sent them a pic of the glass earlier when I heard they were going to re-release it....

    (Black Box does beers from the old Crooked River brewing co, as well as Western Reserve)

    Found this shelf turd yesterday - will be headed back for more today!

    "Wheat" counts as a whole grain and bourbon comes from corn, right? Sounds like breakfast to me.

    Just got off a 24h shift, rewarding myself with a big beer. I was saving this for a special occasion, but what's more special than a random Tuesday in February? Huge thanks to the generous BA @pauljrinaldijr for sending this over in a trade!

    Cheers, BA's!

    Good morning BAs! Another non-snowing day here in the high Arctic of NW PA. The snow piles are slooowly subliming from my yard in preparation for the next several inches I'll blow from my driveway following the next snowfall. Spent a nice quiet day yesterday at jury selection and only got selected for one case - that really screwed up my drinking schedule.

    Today, for NBT (New Beer Tuesday), I've added a beer in a style I like (Weizenbock) from a brewery which frequently disappoints me (Southern Tier). I believe I've lamented previously that I WANT to like them since they're pretty local (about 70 miles away) but the beer-joyment just isn't happening. I've tried 21 of their brews (Eight reviewed on BA) and have only found three worth my time, money, and hepatocytes. This isn't one of them. Oh well - no goats, no glory.

    Thanks! Looks like I'll be checking out yard sales, "antique" stores, and the internet to find one.

    New Local Imperial Coffee Stout...


    This is no BCBCS, yet I'd bang it before I would a FBS (trueness). Let me describe it for those who might be interested in this brew. From the photo you can tell what it looks like. The aroma is full on roasted malts with a hint of French Vanilla and Chocolate undertones. Some dense coffee notes are in the background. Pretty outstanding if you ask me! Time for the FLAVAH! This first hits with coffee roast with semi-sweet malt body. Some French vanilla in mid palate with it closing out with a leafy hop bitterness. Aftertaste of Coffee, Vanilla and Chocolate cookies. Finishes dry and bitter, not a huge fan of that. The feel on this brew is medium-light with soft carbonation.

    Overall: I think this brew is more bitter than 50 IBUs, that might've been measured by the early kettle hops. Yet, with the coffee added brings more bitterness to the beer. It's a pretty good Coffee Stout not breaking boundaries nor is it a slacker either. Slightly above middle of the road for me. I'd bang it again. This brew is worthy!

    Grade: B+
