    Long day of site seeing (read tagging along while wife shopped). Found this on sale at grocery store. Rich, velvety texture. Chocolate malt, still with a whisper of hops. Tasty way to start the evening:

    enjoying this one more so than my first time...for whatever palate-induced reason

    Steppin it up a bit (ok, just a little bit, but the last one was a Schlitz Malt Liquor Bull). Anyway, this was a freebie, a throw-in with a four pack of Spencers Trappist Ale, so I'll knock it out.

    Reviews:

    Nice Lichtenhainer. Dry hopped lends strong aromas and grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel hop notes with some balanced smoked wheat with light coriander/sea salt and a touch of funk. Pleasant and well balanced. Taste of tart lemon, lime, pear, apple, light coriander/sea salt, wheat, cracker, light wood smoke, floral, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/earthy tartness and spiciness on the finish. Very well balanced between the spice, smoke, and fruity/funky yeast notes. Very smooth and crisp finish; with light acidity. Good robust flavors overall. I was expecting a bit more out of this. It feels very toned down on both the smoked wheat malt and the lactic yeast than I expected. Still really enjoyable otherwise.

    Damn good. Aromas and flavors of bright grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange peel, mango, melon, pepper, pine, and herbal hoppiness with moderate light honey/bready malts and floral/grassy hop earthiness. Good amount of piney/spicy bitterness on the finish. Great hop complexity as expected; with a crisp and moderately sticky finish. Very drinkable for 8.1%; some light linering warmth of alcohol after the finish though. I love Equinox hops so there was no way I was going to hate it. Really delicious.
    [​IMG]

    Damn this is delicious! Aromas and flavors of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, caramel, toffee, toast, dark bread, wood smoke, and light char with with slight saltiness. Nice roasted bitter finish. Extremely robust flavors with great malt complexity. Nice creamy finish, medium-full bodied. Nice presence of smokiness and light salt from the pig parts. This is a definite gimmick beer that works. Love it. Only 7% and loaded with flavor.

    I had not gotten into this one because I couldn't score a single around here. Now that I have found a single I am wishing I bought a sixer. (sometimes the ball goes that way sometimes the other)
    I guess having a single and wishing it was a six pack is better than the obverse, having a six pack and wishing it had only been a single. Who can say six pack here we come. Quite "Delicious" indeed.

    Don't know if this makes me "girly" or not but I kinda like blueberry flavored beer once in a while.
