KBS Chocolate Coffee Stout

Hard pour if you’ve a desire to to see a head of coffee foam in dark cappuccino. It loiters a little with unctuous lacing that stick in place in globules, sporadically spaced. Dark chocolate scented, where brew, and coffee bean mix with toffee and sweet cedar, vanilla bean and nougat. Chocolate-pecan-caramel turtles amp up with mocha and espresso, a tiny pinch of black pepper, dark tobaccos, bakers chocolate, and brown sugar coated malt chocolate. Sweet initially, then revelatory as it sorts its relationships, then bitter, with pine, acanthus, chicory, walnut and pecan shell. Warm, rich, and covered in monster muck. Like a cigar smoke filled station wagon driven by a dark chocolate Santa after an Italian truck stop espresso run being slowly pulled into a tar pit. One for the ages. Happy holidays, ya filthy animals!

Double Trouble IPA

It’s been three years since my last review of this little slice of double trouble. Loose and thorny crown of creamy white with cartoon bone lacing plus bubble font. Golden overall, but reddish tinges turn it pink. Banana bread, with honey butter, a bit of molasses and orange marmalade scented, but the breakfast stops there. Healthy dollops of of honey buoy herbs de Provence, golden apple, juniper sharpness, lemon-arabica, pecan, and extra lavender. .

Barrel Aged Series CBS

High alcohol content (11.3%), and the first beer I’ve had where I can actually taste the alcohol. Very distinct chocolate and coffee notes. Enjoyed it very much. — 2 days ago

Chateau Grand Traverse

Dry Riesling 2015

Opening the official "first night in the new house" celebration meal we have this 4 year old dry Riesling from Chateau Grand Traverse. Color is still pale straw with a little tint of honey from the age. Nose still has pear/melon/peach with some grassy and mineraly notes. Flavor finishes dry and tart with notes of pear, green apple, and a hint of wildflower honey. Very tasty with the little bit of age and can't wait to get back up to the winery with the girlfriend. — 16 hours ago
