^ agreed but what if you're in the mood for an unbalanced hop bomb or a very intense sour beer?

 

I'm not standing up for DFH, I couldn't care less about most of their beers. My point is that I'm not always on a quest to find the most perfectly balanced beer...maybe I'm a weirdo like that though.

 

Draft list from one of my favorite spots in Baltimore - Jacks Bistro in Canton. Nice beer selection (they have an impressive cellar) and really good food too

Mikkeller "Beer Geek Breakfast"- Oatmeal Coffee Stout- Denmark

 

Boulder "Never Summer" Winter Ale- CO

 

Southern Tier "Jahva" Stout- NY

 

Nogne "Sunturn Brew"- Dark Ale with Anise- Norway

Backwoods Bastard by Founders is good, but catdangit, that stuff is like 17$ for four 12oz bottles. Founders stuff is really good though. Nobody try that Fireside Chat Yet??? 7.9% and 45 IBUs. A good seasonal dark english ale with spice profile similar to the pumking... sorry Mr.CarWreck that you had to dump your Pumking.

I remember years ago thinking something of their christmas ales but I didn't have any palette back then. No thank you, these days.

 

 

 

Funny you say that. I used to like their Winter Warmer, thought it was good on tap too. Well, maybe their beers got shittier or perhaps my tastes have changed too.

cuvee de ranke has regularly been on rotation throughout the years for me. rarely does a sour match that beer.

 

 

they are outta control good. bitter, kriek, guldenburg, etc. everything.

SO, crooks:

 

The Rauchstar. my intial cracking of the bottle i stuck my nostrail to the bottle & let out a VERY smokey aroma. bacony almost, but NOT overpowering. not as dark & thick as i expected, which i was happy about. 1st swig i took i enjoyed, the smoke is DEF there in every sip...so if you do not like smoked anything. you would HATE this one. overall i liked it alot, i would drink it again. i thint this collab was a win for both of them, a "Scandanavian Smoked Ale" at 9.4% that has inverted crosses & a black metal font.

 

Hailz, br0.

been sleeping on pics lately but not the imbibing.

 

Mocha_Death%282%29.JPG

 

Iron Horse Mocha Death. Seasonal. Espresso + Cocoa + Irish Death Ale

 

Basically an alcoholic Starbucks drink... super coffee-y followed by the chocolate (not too rich but full) with a little dark ale finish. Dessert drink for sure. 7%

Me too. Not a fan of coffee tasting brews. I'd rather have some nesquik.

On that note...Thursday is the new Friday. I'm about to have some Coors, my dudes.

no doubt... unless i've got a big old piece of cake to go along with it, no more coffee beers.

 

right now it's a 6 of this stuff:

despite the spruce tips, there's zero pine taste anywhere. sweet, malty goodness. I'd like a little less carbonation in it but that's really the biggest complaint. And for $7 a 6-pack, I'm all over it.
