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 — 6 months ago

Founder's

Doom Imperial India Pale Ale

Off-white cumulous clouds top a cloudy, nearly opaque cistern of Rich Amber. The lacing menaces like zombie fingers before succumbing to the murky cauldron; sparse bubble implore like confused eyes, disembodied. Tropical notes of rum cake and pineapple-banana cream with a suggestion of cocoanut turn cedar and apricot and lemon breads. Vanilla marks the creamy entry with almond and nougat, that turns bourbon ball quickly leaving you with fire and smoke and lemon tea. Whiskey and lemon become pronounced upon the contemplative conclusion! Like being hugged to death by a baby balrog! #founders #barrelaged #bourbonbarrelaged #beer #dankbeer #imperialipa #ipa #imperial #ale #foundersbrewing #doom ## — a year ago

Dogfish Head Brewery

Liquid Truth Serum IPA

Two-tone antique gold atop and straw-golden toward the bottom. Ruby grapefruit and tangerine aromas with hints of honey and caramel-y lemon bread. Marmalade-hops.
Piney and zesty entry tamped by rye toast notes and orange pith. Touches of cocoa shell and light, white pepper.

Clown Shoes

Hammer of the Beast Imperial Stout and Barleywine Ale

Minuscule head pools in bubbles to the side like a stagnant river then reveals a spider-eyed were-jaguar, before a Turin shroud emerges against the blackest, hopeless night. Oh crap! Did I just unleash barleywine? Well it is cold as the ice king! Magnificence of aroma with basalt, crystalline vanilla, resinous myrrh, and rich dark chocolate! Cedar, tar, burnt vanilla, nutmeg, fennel, licorice and burnt brownie. Awesome! Truly a harbinger of spirit life and neutron star collision! #clownshoes #hammerofthebeast #barleywine #imperialstout #stout #beerpocalypse #dankbeer #darkbeer #beast #beastmode — a year ago

Trillium Brewing Company

Triple Seesaw

Blackberry, prune, resin, boysenberry, raspberry esters, black cherry reduction, plum tort, pomegranate. The entry is ridiculously concentrated and brings sour plum, dried blackberry, cranberry and a stain of soy. Pickled red onion, a pink balsamic feeling here with dried violet, and rose hips. Tasty and complex. #sour #tripleseesaw #gose #seesawseries #trillium #boston #MAbeer #dankbeer — 6 months 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 — 7 months ago

Hinterland Brewery

Lunatic Imperial Stout

Coffee and cream crown that dissipates atop a solid black monolith. Roasted chicory coffee, grill char, blackened fennel, rum pudding, and molasses. Flat and hard hitting with coffee and burnt fig, nutmeg, cinnamon, bitter chocolate, tar, poppyseed and valerian root. Lots of nuts here, betel, coffee, black walnut, burnt pecan. This Lunatic is nutty as a squirrel cage!#lunatic #hinterland #imperialstout #stout #beer #darkbeer #dankbeer #oakaged — a year ago

Burlington Beer Company

Peasant King Double India Pale Ale

Huge grapefruit-tangerine tambourine clanging away at the intakes, with a sweet gasoline note pushed through pirouettes. Light vanilla, ginger, and lemon Madeline. Creamy mouthfeel, with lovely lime, grapefruit pudding, lemon peel, and cedar shavings. #peasantking #vermont #dipa #ipa #paleale #dankbeer — 6 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 — 7 months ago

Wonderful taking note. Just nailed it.

Oskar Blues

Ten Fidy Imperial Stout

Big, frothy, malt ball-shag carpet that hangs around like brocade. Impenetrable by light. Milk and dark chocolates vie with coffee rye, cedar and a bit of black pepper esters. Oak and tar suggest ship seams, and there is an oceanic depth, a coffee reduction, fantastically creamy with a deep caramel core. Bakers chocolate with espresso beans, coffee liqueur and burnt black currant. #oskarblues #tenfidy #imperialstout #stout #barrelaged #abv #dankbeer #darkbeer #imperial — a year ago
