Dragon's Milk Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout

Okay, just black. Blonde wood/ baked apple hurrah, and then the dark quiet of space, or the grainy expanses of closed lids. The lacing of lazy, wood-boring insects. Such sights have set me to worrying of late. Mornings being a struggle at times, especially after these nighttime wooden cudgels and dark devices. The rack anyone? Coconut on coals. Tar socks. Dried violets. Black strap cola. Scraped vanilla beans, and dark chocolate cookie covered coal. Anise cinnamon and thin mint. Well, that’s the smell of the thing. The mouth below is unsweetened baker’s dark chocolate, blackened iron, vine charcoal, charred bone, hot springs through rubber piping, black sugar, Spanish “chocolate” brandy/black strap rum and graphite/smoke with evergreen suggestions. Not the Dragon of fire and smoke I expected, but certainly a formidable cave monster, living inside a volcano. I particularly appreciated the mineral/ethereal aspect. — 14 days ago

Excellent showing for this natural wine that’s still youthful and in great shape. Crushed berries and licorice. Brett and VA are in check, at least in this bottle. A dragon worth chasing — a month ago

Wachau Grüner Veltliner 2015

I forgot to snap a photo so I’m using stock. This is a different Gruner. It’s not crisp and steely, but instead warm and viscous. Plenty of spice, but not white pepper - mostly coriander and clove and baking spices. It has qualities that aren’t so dissimilar from a Belgian Ale. Low acid lets a medley of bruised apples, pear, and ripe lychee sing away. — a month ago

The Calling IPA

Sweet grapefruit citrus, yellow tomato, tangerine, overripe lemon, lime zest, jackfruit and orange blossom aromas. Double doses pull down the cloud curtain on this cider colored, golden creature. Mimosa-greyhound combo leaning heavier on the ruby-grapefruit. Lemon cake with a light glaze, lime pith, lemon zest, and round with its muscles flexed to a lemon pudding. Nice sage and thyme on the finish. With just a fresh snap pea bitterness to keep it honest. — 23 days ago
