Black Market 5th Anniversary - Kentucky-Style Common Ale 2.7  
Black Market Brewing Company Temecula, California
Bottle:   What the hell is this?   Super big tang up front, odd berry and light chocolate malts, with a little floral earthiness.   Sweet and sour at the same time.   Little head, little lacing, brown(ish) in color.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Reminds me of some Epic Ales in their tarness, and even a little sea salt like flavors.   Mealy finish, becomes thin.   Not a fan...

Crow Peak Eleventh Hour IPA 3.1  
Crow Peak Brewing Company Spearfish, South Dakota
Draught at the Crow Peak Brewing Co, Spearfish, SD. Clear deep golden color with a small white head. Really English style IPA aroma with fruit tea and floral hops, sweetness and malt. The flavor is sweet, bitter, floral hoppy and malty. A bit unbalanced and way too English. Low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone rosenbergh

Bottle shared at Zwanze day. Cloudy light golden pour. Huge acidic pear aroma. Taste follows, really good, in your face. thomashall

Narragansett Lovecraft White Ship White IPA 3.4  
Narragansett Brewing Company Providence, Rhode Island
Pint Can, Wine Warehouse. Pours hazy pale golden, nice sized white head. Big easter blossom aroma: roses, other easter flowers (that I can picture but don’t know the names of). Flavor is also very floral, but then turns to mild citrus and Hawaiian bread. Finishes with a bittersweet candy-like flavor. I like it quite a bit until the finish. hershiser2

Reuben’s Black Imperial IPA 3.3  
Reuben’s Brews Seattle, Washington
Bottle:   Nice head and lacing, dark, with a roasty and hoppy nose.   Not as hoppy or bitter on the tongue.   Seems a bit subtle for a Imperial Black IPA.   Has roastiness, but its like a Black Pale Ale.   Lacks depth for an IPA, much less an Imperial IPA.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, soft roastiness, with very little hop bite.   A bit of a letdown if you ask me.


Pax Bräu Old Age IPA 3.7  
Pax Bräu Oberelsbach Oberelsbach, Bavaria
Fresh and smooth beginning. Moderate smooths sweetish, The hops are round and nice in the background, hints of smoke and hints of roast. Smooth and moderate bitter, the smoke is subtle, the body is round. Very nice and round beer, well balanced. Nice! Erzengel

Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut Break 3.7  
Evil Twin Brewing Brooklyn, New York
Bottle shared by Mart, thanks! Pitch black beer, very small beige head. Nose is chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, roast, coffee. Flavor is chocolate and coffee, cocoa, lots of vanilla. Oily finish with more vanilla, chocolate and roast. Big and chewy. suurjuust

Our Mutual Friend Fixed Blade Barleywine (Rye Whiskey Barrel) 4.0  Hazy dark copper/Amber with a thin ivory head. Bready and coconut tones fill the nose with a lot of lightly rye nuances and a kiss of orange zest/rind. Lovely flavor of citrus pith, rye malt, booze, oak, alcohol phenols, light brown sugar and vanillin, a bit of some bitterness and a sharp boozy oak finish. Odd, but interesting and delightfully rye-filled and boozy. onceblind

Widmer Brothers Old Embalmer 3.9  Bottle. 10.2%. Best before 01.05.17. Pours a hazy, golden amber, with a light tan head. Good lacing. Dried/dark fruits aroma, a bit fat, on a malty background. Hint of oxidation. Develops a somewhat light pepperminty overtone as it warms. Flavour is hops and dark/dried fruits, sweet, with malt in the back. A bit fat as well, more than the aroma. Bitter finish with a well-balanced alcohol burn. More dark fruits and a lingering liquorice bitterness, followed by a light grassy note. Soft palate. Overall good, well-balanced. 01.10.16.
