Hard to beat the overall value in this one. $12 and it tastes like it should be $20

#1118 1 year ago
Quoted from swillie:

Excellent beer, and these are only 9$ or so a bomber at Costco...

Damn NC beer mark ups! :-)This is my current favorite starter beer.
Taste almost like you are drinking a dry hopped triple but at only 6.5% you actually still do that later.

#1121 1 year ago
Quoted from swillie:

Here's what's currently in the beer fridge in my gameroom... still plenty of hops in there, I love imperial IPAs, but as the weather dips the stouts will start taking over.

Looking good in there. The DKML is pretty smooth for a 14% Malt liquor. Let’s start with that
The Mayan Mocha Stout sounds good too. Haven’t had that yet.
I am heading back to 2013.
It was a lousy year for me. My old trusty shop truck blew up,someone bought my old shop and canceled the lease(didn’t give a renewal option after 8 years there), my older brother died unexpectedly at 43,my youngest son was hospitalized and diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.All in that order !
Anyway I plan on erasing that year every chance I get so I am starting here but there is a long ways to go

image (resized).jpg

#1123 1 year ago
Quoted from swillie:

Dude sorry to hear all this, we need to dip into my cellar for the beers I'd offer you for dealing with all that bad mojo.
The Mayan Mocha is brewed with coffee nutmeg chocolate and habanero peppers. I always keep some stocked. They make a bourbon barrel aged version...haven't seen that one in a long time but found Imperial Mayan just this week which I'm eager to try. That BBA Old Stock looks fantastic... i've only starting cellaring beers this year so have not had the chance to appreciate what a few years age can do.

Thanks was a tough year and I couldn’t help reflecting on it when I popped that cork but most of that stuff is water under the bridge now or never will be anyway
The Mayan sounds good. Balancing the sweet with the spicy. There are a couple similar beers around here but the names escape me right now.
I am moving on to 2014. Was a much better year.

#1135 1 year ago
Quoted from way2wyrd:

Ive found that most of the buy ups haven't changed the craft of the beer. I do despise big brewing tho.
Hows that one?
--Jeff

Pretty good so far. Like most stouts the flavors are popping a bit more as it warms. Pretty boozie too. I would say it is a bit classier or more refined tasting than Dragons Milk but definitely on that order.

It is November ! Goodbye pumpkin beers. Hello Christmas releases.

image (resized).jpg

#1145 1 year ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

Never been a fan of the pumpkin beers. Got me some Sierra Nevada Celebration a couple days ago. Feels like Christmas already

The pumpkin beers always seem too sweet or have an off coconut flavor according to my taste .Also not a fan of coconut so that is why I don’t like the carryover into the pumpkin.

I did have a great Sierra Nevada Narwhal earlier this week too. F552874B-98EB-4777-82C2-6E786C2C6FC6 (resized).jpeg

Only tried Griffin Claw BBA Screaming Pumpkin and it was remarkable.

Thanks for letting me know about this one. Really enjoying it.

Starting here today. The description alone gives me a bit of pause but I will give it a try. That is why I start there in case I hate it.

image (resized).jpg

#1166 1 year ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

The standard version of Black Butte is pretty good . I have never had the version you posted though .

It was good.I was worried about the peated Malt aspect and orange peel but it was really well balanced and not a focal point I am now getting into the Shmaltz.

Good Imperial Stout out of the VA mountains I believe aged in oak bourbon barrels.
Friend brought it by yesterday but it was warm so we drank other beers but after it chilled I gave it try today.

That looks excellent. Going to be on the lookout for that CBS

Tonight’s offering.

#1197 1 year ago

Going with this tonight.

#1199 1 year ago
Quoted from swillie:

How is the CBS tasting? I never did have that flite I mentioned a few posts back. I am going to a CBS keg opening 10am Saturday, supposed to have all the BBA releases on tap, woohoo!

It was great. Very smooth given the ABV flavors were not quite as pronounced as I was expecting but like most stouts it developed more as it warmed.
This one is very good also. First time I have seen it down here.

#1201 1 year ago
Quoted from terrapinmark:

Chris, you are getting some great Michigan beers down there. I just picked up a CBS and will let it age a bit. I have some Black Note, KBS from 2014.
Cheers!

Those sound great Mark Going to be on the look out for the KBS.
I secured a few bottles of the CBS to sit on but the curiosity was too much for me so I only have two left to age. Will see how that goes

#1205 1 year ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

Damn , the place I usually get beer had some CBS but it was $35 a bottle . I typically don't like it when stuff like maple syrup is put into beer , so I didn't want to risk spending that much on a beer I wouldn't like . Is it overly sweet ? or are the flavours balanced nicely ? I prefer beers where the flavors from the malted barley are the centerpiece , not the adjuncts. I do like imperial stouts a lot (probably my favorite style of beer), and lately I prefer the imperial stouts that have not been aged in a bourbon barrel .

It is $22 down here. A couple spots sell for $27. Limit is one bottle per person thoug so had to work around that.
I was hesitant also for exactly the same reason you stated I don’t really like overly sweet beers but it was surprisingly well balanced and not too sweet.
Crossing the King’s Bridge tonight.

Great semi local brewery. Olde Hickory
They try different things and when it works it works well and when they miss they really miss.
This along with a couple others they brew are really nicely done.

#1223 1 year ago

Going to look in the crates and see what I want to pull and chill for the evening.
Hard choices but probably going to pick something I have doubles of or can easily replace.

#1241 1 year ago
Quoted from way2wyrd:

Stout greatness on tap tonight.

Lot of great choices on that list.
I have only had a few of them personally because of the way beer distribution is down here but would love to try some of those I have not.
Going with this Stout tonight although I have already had it and not really a huge fan of this years batch. I think the added Rye was a mistake to my taste buds but I need to close it out and move on.

Quoted from way2wyrd:

This melange 10 is really good. A hint of chilies with a back of chocolate and brown sugar

Love the Bruery stuff.
Starting with this tonight and lightening up as the evening goes. I like to start with the stronger ones if they are this high ABV.

#1548 1 year ago
Quoted from way2wyrd:

Which batch? Should be on the back. Each one is barreled differently.
https://www.latrappetrappist.com/en/our-trappist-ales/batchregister-la-trappe-oak-aged/
I really like that beer.
-Jeff

That was batch 16. It was great. A little on the “flat” side in terms of carbonation even for the style but it was smooth and flavorful overall.
I think it was dated good for another 20 years but I think it was already starting to pass its prime now just 4 years in.

Usually not an IPA guy but the Rum Barrels seemed to have added a little sweetness and turned down the hops.

#1603 12 months ago
Quoted from swillie:

This one surprised me, very tasty stuff. I poured it in the glass just to show the color, but to be honest I like this one better right out of the bottle for some reason .
[quoted image]

Damn. I don’t think you could have fit another drop in that glass.
Seeing plenty of this 2018 release around here so far.
Seems a little smoother than last years.

#1604 12 months ago
Quoted from Jackontherocks:

Hard to believe an Orange County beer made it to VA, I use to live in the overrated OC and never found an OC brewery worthy when they first started curious how this one tastes.

It was strong at 16% but a bit too sweet.
Tough one to drink solo would be better in a single 8 or 12 oz pour as a finisher or something.

#1611 12 months ago
Quoted from way2wyrd:

I busted this open tonight. 16.5% sour stout aged in bourbon barrels with blueberry .
Its yummy

I love that one. I knew you were not into sours but it's about as light of a sour as you can get and is delicious. Great beer by the pool.

Great beer in the A/C only :-)Step outside in the heat after drinking and it is terrible.
