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.
Directly after the brandy version this was a bit dry and a lot bitter, but with more separation this really grew on me. I think this may have been the best one in the end.
Fruity, sweet and very smooth. Really, really tasty. It may not have ended up at the top of the flight, but there's no way to really fault this beer.
Light, flavors of clove and banana. Really nice, if I'm honest.

Hale's Woodinville Whiskey Barrel-Aged 'Shed Stout (unknown release)
Sour enough that I think this bottle has turned. If it hasn't, it's unpleasant.
Unexpectedly delicious. I was afraid the peppercorn would mean this was a lots-of-spice saison, but it was mellow, lightly estery, with nice toasted barley flavors. Peppercorn is distinct, perfectly balanced. Light, exotic and warming at the same time. Yum!

Holy cat this was against expectations. There's quite a lot of hoppy character built into this, like a strong CDA with a little more roast and thickness. Somehow still good (I don't usually enjoy this style) but definitely a surprise.
A smooth, thick stout with the most disturbingly accurate strawberry ice cream flavor I've ever encountered in a beer. All three of the Neapolitan components are definitely here, but this is somehow coherently a beer too. I'm glad it's not colored accurately, though!
Interesting beer - Yetis have always been a little overwhelming for me, but on nitro it was very much toned down (as was the beer itself, I suppose, at only 5% ABV). Not being a sweet beer helped a lot, resisting the sickly-sweet nitro effect, leaving a kind of very smooth, woody chocolate flavor.
Possibly my favorite in a flight that was uniformly excellent. Light wood smoke opens, with a not-at-all-sour, subtly-chocolate porter finish. Chuckanut definitely seems to be expert at getting clean finishes in all of their beers, and this is one of the cleanest. Bought a squealer for work.
Notwithstanding "Chuckanut Schwarzbier" being the most suggestive phrase I've read in a while, this is a light, dark lager with forward coffee notes and a mellow, lactic finish. No tackiness from that, just cream (ugh, that sounds dirty again). A fantastic schwarzbier.
This was mostly a cider, flavor wise. It's dry and slightly funkier than most ciders, probably from the quince, but with a very pleasant flavor. Beer comes through ever so faintly at the end, with some sweet cereal. Interesting!
Tea I didn't really get at all from this, but a very tasty wee heavy in all respects.
