Old Fitzgerald

15 Years Aged Bottled in Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 2019

Whiskeyfest. I like bourbon and this was solid for me. Not sure it’s worth the cost which is probably why they sell it in a fancy decanter (not shown in this pic as it’s a trade show bottle). — 15 days ago

Pour of the night for single malt scotch!

North Coast Brewing Company

Barrel Aged Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout

Black opaque. Sponge-y headed with a cap of mostly smooth, cappuccino cream glossing. The beer sighs as it pours. Coffee and espresso scents entwine with vanilla, malty chocolate, basil, dark toast, grilled oak, and grilled marinated mushroom. Heavy coffee entry with burnt white sugar, toffee and dark roasted, brittle arabica, soy sauce, bitter notes from peppercorn and roasted pecans, but just enough dark caramel to sweeten it slightly, 100% dark chocolate; drops smoothly in swallow, then surfaces with bitter coffee oils on the finish always remembering its oak. I am very surprised that I have not rated this one yet, as I have had it many times. Now I can say I took a shot/stab at it and drowned the day’s sorrows in its dark robes. — 18 days ago

The Bruery

Terreux Sour in the Rye American Wild Ale

Revisit from four weeks ago, so I’ll keep it short and less windy. Red amber body is just a beauty. The white crown an equal. Strawberry nose with fresh apricot, peach and pickled peach too. Mouth puckering-ly sour with green strawberry, cherry sweet tart, lemon juice, limes, red grapefruit, apple cider vinegar and Dijon mustard, sour pineapple, star fruit and kumquat. Tartness just brands you initially, and you seek shelter in the oak relics below the sour reliquary. — 13 days ago

Love their stuff! Find any of the 'Anniversary' beers, with the wax dipped neck, be patient they're not ready on release, you'll be happy.

Mikkeller

Nelson Sauvin Brut Belgian Wild Ale

Scribbly, disjointed scumble above very cloudy toddy. Cut blood orange, red grapefruit, persimmon, table grape, and baked lemon. Wild, yeasty notes, with scraped aloe plant, dill, carrot, and carnation-daisy. Whoa. Chardonnay perfumes envelope dried green olive and green apple tastes. Weird, white pepper-dried raspberry that has nutritional yeast and cedar. Lime-pineapple devoid of fructose. Active mouthfeel has lemon peel oils, grapefruit pith, salty guava, amplified dragonfruit, and kafir leaves with crushed poppyseed dusting. Stone fruit stone tastes. Overall, a Brett-like orange, with floral suggestions of lillies dragging. Complex, and really amazing, finishing with a tartar-biscuit nod to warm Champagne vintages. Only nature could conjure this. Steel pans with whole citrus and stone fruit purées that turn herbal in the tangle of peel, leaves, stems and seed. — 15 days ago
