Brouwerij Van den Bossche

Brouwerij Van Den Bossche Buffalo Belgian Stout

Waxy chocolate, light vanilla, judicious banyan lacing, wood ear mushroom, old tobacco in the eyes and nose. Bitter plum, caramelized gourd, instant coffee, mocha-raisin, sweet vanilla, coffee crumble, a lime twist, pine bark, tea biscuit, and semi-burnt brown sugar to ride it all out. The sum of its parts smacks of cookies dipped in coffee, but there is a lean streak that somehow auto tunes the malty beast’s braying into a simpler tasty beverage. The iced coffee of stouts. #belgian #belgium #BuffaloBelgianStour #abv #stout #maltyballs #darkbeer #dankbeer #bier #biere #beer #beerbeerbeer #buckingbeer #stoutstoutstoutitonout — a month ago

The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery

Dopplebock Duck-Rabbator Lager

Lager is only slightly misleading here. Red-black with creamed coffee crown. That laces and effaces with ram horn arcs that ride the ring around blackest space. Kona coffee and medium-dark chocolate charms lead coconut and malt notes into vanilla bean and creme cookie with ginger snap ghosts. Lovely and smooth with coffee and milk chocolate creaminess that begs grain earthiness to align behind its toffee and vanilla in caramel and sweet tea and finally dark cacao firmness. #beer #dopplebock #bock #theduckrabbit #DuckRabbatorlager #abv #dankbeer #NCbeer #Blacklager #duckgoatrabbit — 3 months ago

Ashley Gang Imperial India Pale Ale

Gorgeous amber that approaches opacity. White chalk line crown with cosmic bubbles clustering. Candied grapefruit and pretzel nose becomes tangerine marmalade on wheat germ. Drops like a grapefruit gumdrop into cigar box with cedar and sweet tea murmurs, and proves a lovely complement to the malt sugars which somehow come off as raw granules. All the sweet notes extend to a point like a psychedelic pencil that writes in wheatgrass tannin and molasses burnt onto cast iron. Just what I needed to kickstart my brain. What!!!? 9.8% alc. scratch the kickstart, we just hit 60! #ipa #imperialipa #ale #oakaged #bigtopbrewingcompany #Sarasota #flbeer #beer #floridabeer #florida #indiapaleale #AshleyGang #brainbeer #hops #abv — 3 months ago

Sixpoint Brewery

Barrel Aged Righteous Ale

Solid crown just off-white and slow to dissipate. Caramel and vanilla scrawled on oak, rubber band and pencil with golden apple and just a dusting of cinnamon. Tropical notes of dried pineapple, lemon cookie, peach skin, mocha and ripe butternut. Creamy, and initially caramel, but descends to tamarind, ginger, bitter orange, star anise, dark toasted oak, cinnamon bark, lemon zest, and finally rounds out to vanilla bean. Sublime walk through a jungle at sunset, ripe, pungent, seductive and still plenty of machete fodder. #sixpoint #righteousale #brooklyn #rye #barrelaged #ale #beer #dankbeer #doublewood #doublebarrel #righteous — 3 months ago

Abita Brewing Company

Pecan Ale Geaux Nuts

Nose of pecan shell and it’s meat and possibly cola nut. Light fall spices featuring cinnamon and pie notes. Light to medium textured, with grilled barley, pronounced pecan with a bitter aspect. Sarsaparilla bark; feels like fall! Paired well with acorn squash stuffed with Quinoa and portobellos. Pumpkin beers are next!! #geauxnuts #Abita #PecanAle #fallishere #beer #ale #nolacola — 3 months ago

Heavy Seas Beer

Plank IV

Grainy date and fig with malty caramel, hot cocoa with cinnamon and dark honey, anise and dark cacao, bitter coffee foam, and copper aromas. Malty entry with rich gingerbread and black sugar. Citrus chocolate interplay, boasting orange peel and candied lemon but shadowed by sarsaparilla and cola, black bread, allspice and pecan with black strap molasses. #barrelaged #4wood #heavyseas #unchartedwaters #plankIV #beer #quads #belgianquad #belgianstyle #oakaged #abv #quadrupel #2016 — 4 months ago

Southern Tier Brewing Company

Imperial Pumking Ale

Surprisingly light colored head that sprung up like a ghost and then shot back down to a smoky whisper. Rum notes with caramel cream in the lead; spun sugar, cinnamon and clove with yogurt pretzel and honeyed tea. Spicy entry boasts sweetness but not overwhelming. Pumpkin oil, vanilla, oaky caramel, cinnamon and bitter note that suggests charred pecan, and peppercorns. This beer is good because it doesn’t stay sweet throughout and instantly congers the autumnal spirit. It doesn’t get too artificial, borrowing most of its flavors from barrel. #pumpkin #pumpkinbeer #ale #SouthernTier #imperialpumpkin #pumking #beer #seasonalbeer #oakaged #halloween #alehallows — 3 months ago

Shipyard Brewing Co.

Smashed Pumpkin Ale

Pumpkin prominent, as are cinnamon, cardamom and allspice. Cedar Plank, toasted corn and roasted gourd. Unctuous mouthfeel that is rich. Maple syrup, brown sugar and malt, golden raisin, creamy pumpkin, chai latte, with a little pepper spicing up the finish. #pumpkinbeer #pumpkinale #shipyard #smashedpumpkin #shipyardbrewery #pumpkin #seasonalbeer #beer — 3 months ago

The Larimer

99 Problems but a Peach Ain't One Sour Ale

Light peach with pineapple longings, cut red apple, and cobbler softness from my nose in the can-hole. Spritzy peach and kiwi palate that is decidedly non-complex. Save this for hot and humid summer days. Sour fans might see just a medical sliver of ginger in the mix, maybe lime and little else. Depends on your prerequisites, but just a little light for a sour. #sourbeer #beer #sorale #99problemsbutpeachaintone #tgeLarimer #peach #peaches #denver #coloradobeer — 3 months ago

Weyerbacher

Quad Belgian Style Quadrupel Ale

Headless, and Spanish brandy in color. Chocolate and caramel with orange zest. Sweet cinnamon, amarula, cola and clove. Marmalade on toast and a slice of pumpkin pie in the nose in a thick malt mist. Rich and heady with raisins and brown sugar, toffee and cinnamon toast, but dark and decadent, oozing pecan pie between Turkish coffee and fig paste. Nuttiness prevails with burnt almond, pecan and maple nut. Tea and coffee meld with a distant lemon-orange and vanilla with a resin and acanthus finish. #Weyerbacher #quad #belgianstyle #Quadruple #abv #beer #ale #belgianamerican — 4 months ago
