The Bruery

Black Tuesday Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout

Dark roasted barley. Bourbon. Toffee. Char. Perfectly balanced beast. Might actually grow real hairs on your chest. My wife smelled it and backed away as if it were smoldering. At 19+ % it only tastes 12% and the bourbon barrel isn’t too much. It’s great stout. Collectible. Fun now, but really needs 5-7yr to calm down. — 14 days ago

Forlorn Hope

Amerikanischen Kobold Kick-On Ranch Los Alamos Riesling 2014

A lot of "new plastic pool toy" in the nose, followed by lime, spice and white flowers. Palate is dense and complex. Very mineral driven with that pool toy petrol leading into overripe lemon, spiced wild honey and river stones. Very pretty Riesling. — 22 days ago

Los Alamos Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

Seductive, medium bodied Chardonnay with tropical fruit and a dollop of oak imparting toasted coconut notes. A tasty single vineyard treat at $29.

More info: ABC farms plots in the best area of the huge Alamos vineyard (500 acres) which is in the northern section on the Solomon Hills.
