"Here’s Lookin’ Atcha’!"

Laying there, staring up at the ceiling, head pounding, last night was a dim recollection. How did he get home? Was he alone? Looking to the left and right, the answer was yes, maybe. His head was full of ’rag water, bitters, and the blue ruin’.His teeth felt like he’d been chewing aluminum and his breath smelled like a burning tractor tire. There was a wrenching knot somewhere between his liver and East St. Louis and he couldn’t be sure whether or not he’d wet himself. A yellow sine wave rang in his ears so loud nit made his teeth itch and he was sure that if he touched his skin anywhere it would induce a rhythmic retching jag. Even in the face of all that, he found himself smiling at the realization that today represented the fresh breast of a new year- an undiscovered country- and also there was still one warm, half-full, flat redolent Hairy Eyeball on the nightstand. Yes-there is a God.

Sigmund (6106) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2015
650 ml bottle, bought in the brewery store, consumed in Sacramento. Reddish brown colour. Nutty and moderately roasty malts in aroma and flavour, followed by piney American hops, seems somewhat unbalanced. The alcohol is not very well hidden. Not my favourite from Lagunitas this one.

weihenweizen (2626) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Refrigerated brown bottle poured into a glass. Clear Amber with very little head. Aroma is caramel malt, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is rich caramel malt.

jsporrer (299) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Pours a reddish purple with a white head. Not much of an aroma. Texture and body is a little thin. Taste is of light chocolaty malts but not too sweet. It was enjoyable to drink but nothing special. Smooth with no harshness or bitterness but flavors aren’t strong enough to make this memorable. Better than some but just not good enough.

NeuroPliny (235) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Clear mahogany with tan head. Aroma is dark dried fruit, caramel, cherry, and roasted malt. Flavour is sweet dried fruit, subtle spices, caramel, and hops. Nothing wrong with this one. Light-moderate body.

Pours Amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is fruity with moderate alcohol. The flavor has caramel, melon, peach, and cherry notes. The alcohol presence is evident. Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Very good strong ale with complex favors and nice warming alocohol sensation.

chinchill (3586) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2015
22 oz bottle. Clear mahogany body with a decent head. A bit too sweet upfront, but I often think this about barleywines. Moderate complexity with partially hidden ABV.
