Logs for this venue
Completely flat, letting the full brunt of the flavor. Creamy chocolate, light plum, a little salty on the finish to balance.
Okay, this was the first milkshake IPA I've had that made me think of a milkshake. Sweet lactose, like almost Orange Julius levels to my mind, and a less sweet peach juice flavor finish into a dry, super hazy IPA. Each flavor stage was less sweet than the previous one. Weird, but interesting.
Extraordinarily sweet, cutting any sense of hoppiness or dankness from this beer. After that fades you're left with a strong alcohol finish. Only took a couple sips to develop a buzz with this. Didn't much get a strong sense of bourbon. Closest beer to this I've had is the Dogfish 120 Minute IPA, but this one seems to lack the IPA-ness of that one.
Lime forward cask beer, middle flavor of ginger; aftertaste is buttery cereal. A little gimmicky, but I don't hate it.
Blondilocks is a beer I really enjoy, and this keeps most of the qualities of that beer - a yeasty, sweet-cereal beer with plenty of body and moderate funk. Added on top of that is a mildly spicy, fruit dry hop opening, which is nice, and a somewhat flat cask character, which brings out some hop dankness and soapy notes, which I liked less.
Tasty pumpkin porter, some cinnamon notes that put it slightly in the candy-like territory of Hi-Fi's Amigo Warmer, but not quite as cloying. Medium spice, which is less than you'd expect from the combination of chilies in the name, but a pretty good balance.
Pretty nice. Clearly a woodsy IPA to start with, although all traces of bitterness seem to have been lost in the brett barrel. What's left is kind of a resin essence, some nice fragrance, a touch of high alcohol, and the brett. When cold it was more of a hint of barrel at the beginning, but as it warmed up the finish gained a lot of buttery complexity.
The fruit kolsches from this brewery always taste more like radler-esque blends than integrated beers, and this is no exception. Super-bubbly, like pineapple soda mixed with a kolsch, although the flavors here are very bright and refreshing. Very fresh, bright pineapple flavor. Lots of sweet cereal malt finish up.
Wow! This is maybe the most pumpkin pie-like beer I've ever had - at once vegetal, lightly spiced, and creamy cereal on the finish. Just a touch of cider-like fruitiness on top. It's like they took the best of Pumking and Pumpkick and threw some more pumpkin in there.
