The bottle label of this beer implies this is the base of Perennial's other big stouts, and it shows. Almost candy sweet, thick; somehow not crazy overdone but still something that can only be had in small doses. Lots of vanilla.
Draft
Toasty, buttery coconut. Immediately sweet but balanced very quickly with a good (but not overdone) amount of roast. If I had to compare it would be like Maui's Imperial Coconut. Very, very tasty.
Draft
Very fragrant, tasty hops. Solidly bitter on the end, high-alpha without being too pithy. Might as well have been an IPA though, can't detect anything that screams lager here.

Dry and yeast-bitter, somewhat flat. That said, this had a very interesting, green-wood flavor to it, and I think overall it was good. I wish it had been more easily drunk.
Draft
I know somebody who works for Elysian now so of course it’s good.
Draft at Sunset Cafe, Cle Elum
Somehow less resin than the Talk Story but without the interesting grain flavor. Definitely Hop centric but not bad.
Draft
Sweet-roast, creamy and mellow. Really easy to drink although there's something a bit... hollow about the finish? Thin enough that I'd call this a porter.
Draft
A noted step down from the regular pilsner; this isn't bad, per se, but the pineapple-juice quality of the fruit erodes the crispness just enough to subvert the flavor. Not fake or weird, just a touch out of balance.
Draft
A new brewery, charmingly inserted into the old Maui Brewing space in Lahaina. This is a light, tasty German/American pilsner with a hit of tropical fruit on the front of the flavor. Really strong offering.
Draft
Nice with dinner
Draft at Oak,Seattle
Decided to try the new Maui brewery's offering. Some pungent resin to open, very IPA-like, but proceeds to a toasty, exotic grain flavor... Grains of paradise come to mind? Bitter and complex.
Draft
Unremarkable malty, mild, red ale. Slightly sweet, slightly hoppy.
Bottle
Lightly tart, peachy, with lots of sweet wheat cereal to finish. Fragrant and refreshing. The server mentioned a bourbon barrel, but I didn't really taste that. A really delicious beer from The Bruery.
Draft
I don't know what exactly makes this a "German IPA" but the server didn't either. It was a really solid IPA though. I mean, I guess it was maltier than commonly found, but not super-unusually so.
Draft
Perfectly pleasant but not particularly memorable. Fruity, tart saison.
Draft
I had ordered a Mac Nut Brown, but they were out and I got this instead. This was something I'd had before, but still a decent beer; caramel, nutty, mild. The new brewery / restaurant is beautiful!

Warm Beer, right. Reminds me of a malty beer version of roasted dandelion root tea.

Still agree with my last log.

Kind of a brackish pale. Must be all that grave dust.

Better than any of the weird samples Roy is insisting on assaulting me with tonight.
This tastes like beer...mixed with the dried residue of McDonalds BBQ sauce.
Yuck. Cheap malty beer taste with molasses.
A sweet and spicy Hefe. It's actually pretty good as just a drinking beer. Actually, it gets cloying after awhile. I'm dropping the rating.
Bottle at Family
Lightly tart, good sweet wheaty cereal. Lots of pear and not much bergamot, I think, but really tasty!
At first I thought this was the best one, although with some more distance between the beers the tequila is a little wooly here. Wooly in a good way for sure! But some moods might prefer the straightforwardness of the Scotch version.
