Firestone Walker SLOambic (unknown release)
A very dry berry sour, one of the least juicy I've tried. The berry flavor is very realistic, but muddied by a kind of tomatoey murkiness. Finish leaves a salty feeling on the lips and a few smacks of the mouth. It's... more good than it is enjoyable, I guess?
Brown, Balsamic-esque sour (like Duchesse de Bourgogne?) - a couple years' aging has really smoothed out the ancillary flavors here. Slightly fizzy, clean finish. Very nice.
A sweet cream ale, with hints of cereal milk and flaked coconut. Very easy-drinking, although I like a toastier flavor in coconut beers. So this wasn't love at first taste, although it was decent.
Has the typical Helles sweetness but with a decent amount of smoke (they say this isn't made with smoked malt, but it's actually smokier than some that are). Medium bitterness on the end, but this isn't exactly crisp - the smoke and sweetness interact to create a slightly sticky finish - but it's quite tasty.
At Bottleworks. Super, super smooth stout, chocolate-tinged, with good, complex barrel character and, well, a much mellower whiskey flavor than I would have expected from Jack Daniels. I think that's the age. A light aura of smoke as well.
