Logs for beers from this brewery

Going back to the base flavor just reinforced the lactic tackiness in the finish. I wonder if it's fair to call it verging on spoiled milk?
Can at Work
The most intriguing flavor was the biggest letdown. The initial taste was really off, almost vegetal, although it normalized to something more cinnamon-prominent after a couple sips.

Vanilla dominates in this one.

All of these beers have a sour lactic finish, which I didn't love, but the coffee variant was the best one, probably because the bitter roast offset it.
Can at Work
Pretty decent chocolate milk stout. Sweet, but not too sweet. Thinnish mouthfeel. Cola-like? The milkiness lingers as a tackiness in the throat, as does something of a roast bitterness.
This doesn't seem stylistically accurate. Maybe my taste buds are off but this comes across like a slightly toastier version of the pumpkin ale, and the sweetness doesn't really work for me.
Basically a pumpkin beer? Spice forward, hints of sweetness, lightly hoppy, clean, pretty bitter on the aftertaste.
Banana, clove, but also tart, finishes distinctly metallic but clean.
Passionfruit and resin but surprisingly non-bitter. The resin comes through more as a dense hop juice flavor. Lots of alcohol, which shows itself over time. Very much hoppier than I usually like but somehow still enjoyable.
