Rivertown Brewing Company

Lambic 2015

Sour buttermilk, boiled potato, clotted cream, crimini mushroom and Parmesan herald a funky-earthy scent made pleasant by maple sap, pickled peach, underripe apricot, and coriander. Apple cider vinegar bursts into the palate with wincing alacrity, which, with goat cheese becomes a bright tangerine and near-ripe apricot. Still has a pickled note. Pickled yellow pepper, onion, red bell and general chow chow diciness, as well as a sauerkraut and sweet mustard combo. Razzy, jazzy and bracing. Stellar example of the lambic style. .

Big Top Brewing Company

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 — a year ago

Stone Brewing Co.

Stone Americano Stout

Big head of coffee foam crackles crisply changing to lighter tan as it drops to thinly reveal the black liquids below. Fun lacing of rings and loch monsters inform the ring. Delicious dark roasted aromas and something bordering on malted marshmallow. Chocolate truffle cross-sections follow. Arabica-dabra! Lovely mouthfeel with a mocha coating turns bitter in the best of ways. This is round two for this stout, and it only seems to get better! Cedar Sumatran tobacco, roasted pine nuts, toffee, leather, vanilla, and heavy espresso notes coax one into basalt with their black arts! Forest floor of mushroom and softening bark. #stonebrewery #americanostout #stout #imperialstout #beer #darkbeer #coffeestout #stoustoutstoutitallout #beers #isanybodystoutthere #oakaged — 2 years ago

Probably the best beer review I've ever read. 🍺

Founder's

KBS Chocolate Coffee Stout

Hard pour if you’ve a desire to to see a head of coffee foam in dark cappuccino. It loiters a little with unctuous lacing that stick in place in globules, sporadically spaced. Dark chocolate scented, where brew, and coffee bean mix with toffee and sweet cedar, vanilla bean and nougat. Chocolate-pecan-caramel turtles amp up with mocha and espresso, a tiny pinch of black pepper, dark tobaccos, bakers chocolate, and brown sugar coated malt chocolate. Sweet initially, then revelatory as it sorts its relationships, then bitter, with pine, acanthus, chicory, walnut and pecan shell. Warm, rich, and covered in monster muck. Like a cigar smoke filled station wagon driven by a dark chocolate Santa after an Italian truck stop espresso run being slowly pulled into a tar pit. One for the ages. Happy holidays, ya filthy animals!

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 — 2 years 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 — 2 years ago

Founders Brewing Company

Double Trouble IPA

It’s been three years since my last review of this little slice of double trouble. Loose and thorny crown of creamy white with cartoon bone lacing plus bubble font. Golden overall, but reddish tinges turn it pink. Banana bread, with honey butter, a bit of molasses and orange marmalade scented, but the breakfast stops there. Healthy dollops of of honey buoy herbs de Provence, golden apple, juniper sharpness, lemon-arabica, pecan, and extra lavender. .

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 — a year ago

Cigar City Brewing

Jai Alai White Oak India Pale Ale

Spongy, bubbling crown of clown hair that bubbles away into an aurora without significant lacing; just the odd outcropping. Orange pith and lemon vie against carrot and pineapple upside down cakes. Hempseed, ginger and and a touch of cypress cameo with grapefruit seed aromas. Less creamy than in the past, with the sense of orange bitters through the lifespan. Pecan shell, cigar box, grapefruit oil, nettle, pronounced oak toast, and metallic lemon. Somehow different from years past. Maybe American oak lending a Spanish moss dryness to the finish. #cigarcitybrewing #whiteoakjaialai #jaialai #ipa #beer #paleale #indiapaleale #florida #ale #oakaged #ccb #oakonthis #beerprudence — 2 years ago
