Dominic's Log

A bit too hoppy for me. Very average otherwise.
VERY boozy and very grain forward. Not my favorite but if you're looking for bourbon-barrelly stuff, this is one of the most bourbon-barrelly thing's I've ever had.
Bottle at Redwood City, CA
Just right. The coconut and rum are just right and let the milk stout through at the end before a not-too-boozy rum ending.
Can at Home
It's special. The bourbon picks up as the quad leaves. Incredibly well balanced. Some oak shows through at the end.
Light for a stout but let's the coffee shine
Malty and sour forward. Sour keeps going as the maltiness turns to sweet, then to oak. Lots going on!

I can totally see where that taste in the anniversary ale came from now.
Nice sour on top of what tastes like a Belgian golden ale
Bottle at Home
Cool hybrid taste between a Belgian ale and a stout.
Bottle at Home
Refreshing, definitely nice when it's hot outside... as it is often the case here in Austin.
Can at Home
Typical Quebec quad. Good.
Bottle at Gatineau, Quebec
The base beer fit this is ok but this is a whole new ballgame! There is a certain booziness throughout from the brandy and a nice apple finish.
Bottle at Home
At the nose, dulce de leche pastry. The rum component builds up over time to provide a nice backdrop to this subtle porter.
Really good mix. High quality coffee.
Honey cream ale upfront. But where are the pecans? Wait... Wait... Whoomp, there it is! Beautiful nutty finish.

I like cherry coke. This reminds me of it a bit. The rum does not overpower the whole thing. It is present but just enough.
Bottle at Home
Really good Imperial stout. Well rounded: sweet, malty, roasty.
Draft at Whole Foods Market - Domain
Pretty much a perfectly balanced barleywine.
Draft at Barley Swine, Austin, TX
Very surprised by the quality and authenticity of this Belgian Tripel. It has the oomph it should have and also well rounded.
Bottle at Home
Light on the attack and with a nice chocolate finish.
Draft at Work
A bit light for a porter but the coffee taste makes up for it.
Can at Home
Refreshing, well done lager.
Draft at Blue Corn Harvest, Cedar Park, TX
Bottle at Gatineau, QC
Bottle at Gatineau, QC
Very roasty stout.
Bottle at Gatineau, QC
Bottle at Gatineau, QC
This beer has three distinct phases. Very fruity attack, both from the barrel and the guava. Then I can clearly taste the tea which lingers until the end as a not unpleasant bitterness sets in. The finish ends up being quite dry.
Bottle at Gatineau, QC
Hops in front with a very nice malty finish.
Bottle at Gatineau, QC
Time has been good to that beer. It mellowed but kept all its character.
Bottle at Home
The color is really nice, so is the aroma but the bitterness given by the frankinense does not complement thte taste like bretts or hops, it seems out of place. Makes the beer very mediciny.
Bottle at Home
Very clean hops taste in attack that does not turn into a bitter aftertaste like other IPAs. Instead, it has an unbelievably malty finish.
Bottle at Home
First thought: whoa! Too much cloves! Funny thing is I was making my family's tourtière which also has cloves in it. I had it with the one we ate for dinner... Prefect match! Every family's tourtiere recipe is different but this is indeed a festive beer with mine.
Bottle at Home
Champagne-like bubbles. Very well rounded Belgian beer with strong caramels and milder red wine undertones (less than I expected). Amazing.

Caramel and candied fruits attack as expected, drier finish than expected. Quite pleasant!

Bottle at Copalis Beach, WA
Not that tasty but highly sessionable.
Bottle at Copalis Beach, WA
Nice citrus well balanced with the Saison's bitterness. Would be sessionable if it wasn't this high in alcohol.
Bottle at Home
Strong wine characteristics, it carries the Muscat really well, especially when paired with foie-gras. Stands up to old cheese too!
Bottle at Home
You get the whiskey through the maple syrup and the barrel as background
I guess my palate has changed since because I like it a lot more today.
The barrel aging hits you for the first few sips then becomes the background for a refreshing red ale.
Bottle at Home
Wow, lots going on with this beer. There was one little point of bitterness that I did not agree with but a bite of food just made it disappear.
Bottle at Home
Nicely malty with a roasted coffee taste.
Bottle at Home
Very good but a bit expensive. Less value than a Succaba for that price.
Bottle at Home
Fragrant as freshly soaped dishwater and just as tasty.
Bottle at Home
Good scotch ale with a little barrel plus. Exactly as advertised.
Bottle at Home
This beer is really growing on me. The complexity of the brettanonyces and the wine barrel aging just make an awesome combo.
Bottle at Home
A bit like the Union Jack but lighter.
Bottle at Work
Smells amazing but the taste does not deliver.
Growler
Hoppiness that gives way to plain bitterness later on.

Still one of my favorites.
Good stout, nothing s'more.
Strong pine like aroma. Otherwise tastes like am extra hoppy Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
Bottle at Home
Dried fruits and malty finish.
Nice level of hop. Nothing special otherwise.
Really good in a small dose. Very malty (obviously). I thought it would lend itself well to a coffee version.
Exactly what you would expect from a good Belgian pale. No more, no less.
Bottle at Home
Nice Belgian IPA but I have a hard time finding the bourbon in the aroma or the taste.
Bottle at Home
Draft at The Commons
Nice attack but very bitter finish.
Too much on the woodsy side and not enough on the bourbon barrel for my taste.
Bottle at Home
Had this with a stew tonight. Really good match. I liked it better than what I remembered!
Bottle at Home
Nice but I found it to be a bit more sour than I would have liked.
Bottle at Home
I was expecting the oak chips to be too woodsy or creating something that was overbearing... NOPE! This is tasty! Probably the lightest bourbon something aged beer I have had so far. It hides that 9.1% abv pretty well.
Bottle at Home
You get the peat from the whiskey barrel-aging right away, then the apples, then it mellows out like a good mead.
Bottle at Home
I could keep nosing that beer forever. The taste is a real disappointment, badly balanced and none of the smell comes through.
I thought that it would be too heavy to drink a whole 22 ounces but I was wrong. It just kept being awesome throughout.
Bottle at Home
Spicy, malty with a bit of tartness at the end.
Not so much creme brulee... But a kick ass caramel milk stout!
Bottle at Home
Advertised as a Belgian but tastes like the Belgian IPA I used to love in Qc. Fully Belgian with just the right bitterness at the end. The only caveat is that the aroma is a bit lacking on the citrus side.
Bottle at Home
Way too carbonated. Aggressive orange and cloves that linger as an aftertaste long after.
Very nice aroma but does not deliver.
I liked the draft version a lot more than the bottled one. The cherry is not as overbearing.
Good but has a bit of a sour taste at the end.
Refreshing but nothing out of the ordinary.
True to the Belgian Quad style, nice sweetness and dried fruits.
The pumpkin spice is subtle but well matched with this darker ale.
