1205. Taxman 401(Cake)

As per usual, claim of coconut in this beer, don’t hold up.  I get no coconut flavors.  And that’s disappointing.  I’ve drank one cold, I’ve drank one that sat for 20 minutes, and I drank on that sat for an hour.  Not matter what temperature - there is no coconut to be tasted. 

Aside from that disappointment - this beer is delicious.  Great malty flavors with wonderful (non-bitter) Chocolate flavors.  Subtle vanilla.  Yum. Yum. Yum!

I will be drinking a lot of these this winter!

1200. BrewDog Choco Libre

It’s only fitting, that Beer #1200 is from the brewery that Caitlin and I invested in this year. 

So... Choco Libre....
For an Imperial, you can’t taste any bite from the 8.4% ABV.   It’s silky smooth.  So smooth, it almost feels watered down - but I’m sure it’s the nitro. It’s light, and goes down quickly.  The spicy on the back end creeps up and is actually pretty subtle.  It’s not even a hot spicy, it’s like I have a single red pepper flake in my mouth.  

Very interesting beer.  

1199. Triton S’mores Dessert Stout

I will say that I like this beer a lot, it’s chocolate-smooth and creamy.  It’s not bitter, the lactose blends perfectly.  Super tasty. 

But...  I don’t get much “marshmallow” flavor or any graham cracker.  Granted, I’ve been spoiled by Off Color’s DinoS’mores, but still...  the flavor isn’t there for me.  

Still a delicious beer!

1194. BrewDog King of Eights

East Coast IPAs are easier to down that West Coast ones. Lots of flavors, but still a more dry and bitter than I prefer. 

1193. BrewDog Small Screen Hero

Limited Edition beer released to coincide with the launch of The BreDog Network.  (Which I subscribe too, and am excited that they are working with Zane Lamprey on “Four Sheets”!!!)

It’s a smooth and simple pale ale. 
Nothing amazing, but very drinkable.

1192. BrewDog Aloha

It’s okay at first.  It’s good. 

But. As it warms up, the coconut REALLY starts to come out.  Very good.  Very enjoyable - once it warms up. Really like it!

1191. BrewDog Piña Playa

I’ve been waiting so long to try this beer - and it was worth it!  It’s delicious!  I think it goes down smooth and easy with great flavors.  The coconut flavor isn’t too strong (which sucks) but it’s still there enough. 

Really enjoy this beer!

1185. Props Flying Coffin

Yet another gift from Jae and Claire - and they added a pint glass with this one!!!  Veteran Owned and Operated is always awesome to see!

1184. Coastal Empire Savanah Brown Ale

Another gift from Jae and Claire - this one’s from Savanah, GA - and the same brewery that I found on my honeymoon that made the Coconut Gose. Sadly, this beer is not as tasty. Dry and bitter all around.

1183. Service Brewing Brewer’s Release No. 3

My friends Jae and Claire picked this up for me while on their vacation to the southern states. It goes down a little too smooth.  I was expecting tart - but there wasn’t any.  Good berry flavors in a somewhat dry (not bitter) ale.
