Logs for this venue

A very weird, bright, hop perfume meets an orange essential oil slick. Less like a Kolsch (not much cereal, not much yeast) and more like a dry hopping experiment gone wrong.
Draft
Medium tart but with a very dry quality and a ton of funk, almost cheesy, on the back end. A while lot of raspberry and some cake like cereal sweetness. Somewhat of a chore to drink.
Draft
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?
Draft
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.
Draft
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.
Draft
Foamy thick stout with a medium-brown head. Clear bourbon on the nose and in the flavor, but balanced out by a malt-ball chewiness. Dry finish with a bit of tackiness left on the back of the throat, but a very solid, straightforward bourbon stout.
Draft
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.
Draft
A very burnt-sugar coffee flavor; toasted puffed rice cereal finish. It wasn't exactly smooth, but it was decent enough. I do find myself expecting more from Breakside, though.
Draft
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.
Draft
Fairly spicy-hoppy brown, with some mellow nuttiness. This didn't get anywhere near the Rogue Hazelnut nectar in terms of resembling nut butter or nut candy, and the hops kind of interfered with my enjoyment, but a perfectly decent beer.
