Great flavors all the way!!! This was a gift from my buddy Dave Richmond. It was one of the Ommegang's I had yet to try. I really enjoy it. Smooth, with a great blend of fruity flavors that go down easy.
Generally, I'm a big fan of brown ales. This one is just a little odd.... Reading about it, I assume it's the raisins. It just adds an odd flavor that I'm not really a fan off. No bitter, so it does go down easy, only complaint is that little flavor.
It's interesting. Not really great, but not terrible. Spicy flavors that are really smooth and almost no bitters. An odd lingering aftertaste... I'll enjoy it, but won't be drinking it religiously, like Benjamin Grinchby will be.
This one that a lot of people have been raving about, and I'm just now getting around to trying it. This one was a gift from my buddy Ryan Miller.
It's pretty darn good. I really enjoy the flavors up front - there's quite a few of them - it goes downs fairly easily, with a medium bodied feel. My only complaint might be that the flavors don't longer too long. In the time I've typed this, I've lost all flavor and I'm ready for another drink.
I really like the aroma, but the beer is just ok. It's a very standard IPA, not too bitter, but very dry. Leaves me thirsty as soon as I'm done drinking. Nothing really extremely good or bad about this beer. It's drinkable, but nothing I'll seek out ever again.
It's goes down super smooth, like any regular ale - then as soon as you stop drinking, that cinnamon/nutmeg flavor kicks in, and it's kind of weird at first, but it grew on my quickly. Once I knew what to expect, later drinks were very enjoyable!
I really enjoy this, and I can't figure out why. It's smooth and easy to drink, very low bitters and an almost chocolate after taste. But still, it just hits me the right way. I dig it. I probably couldn't do a lot of them, but I'm enjoying it!
Sadly, this is another bust from Fountain Square for me. It's also a bust IPA for me, as it is a much more bitter beer than I enjoy. I don't get any of the citrus flavor this beer boasts, and the aftertaste isn't enjoyable.
This is an Oktoberfest that I was looking for previously, but never found. Came across it tonight, so I grabbed a bottle.
I would consider this my first "Medium Oktoberfest". Many of them this year were very "light" Oktoberfest beers, which I thought was odd, but adjusted to it. This one, it's a little heavier, has good flavor, but it doesn't feel heavy while drinking it - as the traditional Oktoberfest should.
Nice aroma, good balance - not too bitter. Some nice flavor up front, but a rather odd aftertaste. Not bad, but kind of dry.
Tonight, I'm watching the "Brew Dogs" Finale, so in my standard attempt - I'm drinking a beer from the brewery James and Martin team up with. For the finale, they are in Boston with Jim Koch. Going to enjoy this beer and be sad about the show's first season ending.
The dry hopping is very obvious, luckily it does bring some full flavor on the back half that quickly covers that up. Smells really nice and goes down fairly smooth. The natural carbonation gives it a nice and special quality.
Really smooth and delicious beer. First ever winter ale that I can remember using Grains of Paradise. Makes for a really enjoyable experience.
Being bottle-conditioned, I'm worried this one hasn't aged enough. Doesn't seem to posses much carbonation, as if cask-conditioned. Luckily, the flavors are so abundant that it makes it very pleasing to the pallet.
I wanted something special here, and since I'm pretty into Ommegang Brewery right now, I figured a Limited Edition beer from them was a great choice. They will also be 401...
It's an interesting beer. Smooth and light, but insane flavor. Perhaps too much flavor? It's tough to process all of it. It finishes with a wee bit of a spike in bitter, but it's not terrible. Good beer overall. But nothing I'll be forcing myself to drink again.
Stout aren't my favorite, but this goes down nice and smooth and I enjoy the hint of oatmeal it leaves behind. Kind of leaves my mouth very dry at the finish, but I'll survive. One of the better stouts I've had.
