Logs for this venue

A really clean, nice, rounded orange flavor. Blood orange? But also reminded me of mandarin. What it really brought to mind was the classic Goose Island Orange Cream sodas from the '90s.
Draft
Strong and roasty, this is what you look for when you think Russian Imperial Stout. And war stories about porn bugs is what you look for when you have a gathering of old browser devs.
Draft
Hazy, guava/grapefruit hazy pale. Somewhat raw hop bitterness. Not nearly as refined as the IPA the others were having.
Draft
Unexpectedly tart, sour hop flavors. Finishes with cereal and a high Brett dry bitterness. Went very will with the (also funky, also dry) smoked Gouda. Really quite good!
Draft
Fragrance of green apple. Quite sour, puckeringly tart, a bit like a punch of cider vinegar, Not much cereal present, but it's so, so clean.
Draft
Coriander's the strongest and most immediate flavor in this beer, which is usually a big negative for me, but it worked really well in this beer. It flowed into a dry, yeasty turn into a strong cereal backbone. I think that bit of savory character made this beer.
Draft
Postdoc Dead Wolf Unicorn (unknown release)
Draft
Starts with a smooth oatmeal stout character, but very quickly turns ashy. Over-roasted for sure - at least for the style. It wasn't exactly bad, but I wasn't enjoying it a whole lot.
Draft
I don't overall remember the flavor of this beer (forgot to log it at the time other than rating), but I do have a distinct impression that the coffee was a bit over-sweet.
Draft
First off, this came out much darker than I was expecting. This was basically a lightly hoppy amber ale. Didn't have any grassy funk like I enjoy in a steam beer / common ale to remind me that there are lager roots involved. Out of context this might have been fine, but I wanted something different.
Draft
Low-carbonation; even if this wasn't cask it was similarly (not) bubbly. Very much tasted like an English cask-poured IPA, with a bitter, rooty, resinous hop flavor right on the tongue. Within that context, pretty good, but I've had a lot of Machine House I've liked better.
