Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout
Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass. The beer had wet dark brown-black appearance with a deep ruby hue and a good-sized creamy dark tan head with average retention and cling, but good lacing. Its aroma featured a mix of malty flavors, including chocolate, cocoa, caramel, and bits of pepper and cinnamon. The taste had a smooth wet chocolate flavor with a bit of caramel, that quickly gave way to spice and cinnamon. It was a fairly wet and watery beer with lower carbonation and a lighter mouthfeel.

Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout
650 bottle. Bottle was a gusher. Black with a medium tan head that had somewhat poor retention and soon faded to a fine ring. The aroma was quite pungent with chili peppers and cocoa. Taste mirrored with aroma with chili peppers in the forefront backed by cocoa and dark chocolate. The whole concoction has an underlying lactate sweetness that seems to work rather well here. The palate was medium and appropriate. Finished long with lingering sugars and chili peppers. Overall: Decent.

Copper Kettle Bourbon Barrel Aged Naja Imperial Red
Bomber. Caramel and toffee malt aroma with notes of bourbon, vanilla, oak and some pine resiny hops. Pours caramel colored with a ruby tinge that has a thin tan head with poor retention and some lacing. Starts its caramel and toffee malt sweetness with notes of bourbon and vanilla. Finishes dry with some pine resiny bitterness that is smoothed out nicely by the oak and bourbon. The barrel aging really improved an already delicious beer.

Copper Kettle Big D.I.P.A.
Hazy deep Amber with a thin sticky light beige head. Amazing sticky and caramelly Oaked aroma with some fresh wood and gorgeous floral resins and a little bitter orange peel. Beautiful oak and bourbon and gentle char on the flavor, lots of caramelly Amber malts and semisweet orange zest, and a stern boozy and bitter floral/grapefruit resin under it. Nice oak and bourbon throughout, remaining gentle while still letting the hops dominate the palate. Lovely flavors.

Copper Kettle Imperial Smoked Porter
Deep dark hazy amber-brown with a persistent, sticky off white head. Nice nose of smoked malt, a gentle hint of pork, smokey chocolate, and a kiss of coffee. Flavor is the same, but a little gentler on the smokiness, decent dark cocoa tones, a bit of coffee, semisweet dark malts, and a gentle caramel finish. Really pleasant. Less smokey than the nose, so itís basically an imperial porter.

Copper Kettle Kalirado IPA
Clear brilliant golden with a persistent tight foamy white top. The aroma smells like fresh leafy hop cones and fresh orange rind and just a kiss of pine resin. Big bitter and piney resinous dank flavor with a touch of floral acidity and a dry bitter finish, slight touch of copper and caramalt on the finish. Too leafy and piney and bitter, a tad unbalanced for its own good.

Lots of white oak and a touch of bourbon, a lot of briny tartness, a bit of lemon zest, and more oak and a kiss of bourbon and tart salt on the finish. Bourbonny aftertaste with a bit of tart lemon citrus.

Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout (Bourbon Barrel with Vanilla Bean)
Bottle at home. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head - seemed to dissipate quickly - decent lacing. Kind of tangy - cinnamon, nutmeg, lightly toasty, semi-sweet, bready, and toffee aroma. Taste is big cinnamon, toffee, bittersweet chocolate, nutmeg, light vanilla, coffee, and toffee with a bit of heat on the backend. Medium body with soft carbonation. I dig the spice level more than the base version, but really wish it had more body.

bottle, my teeth hurt after this one and im about to pass out from the insulin spike and crash. A shot of molasses with a shot of bourbon. Sugar stickness and very thick mouthfeel last forever.

A pretty decent dessert stout. Chocolate more than pepper, but neither are as pronounced as I expected.

Copper Kettle Barrel Aged Double IPA
Tulip at the brewery - dark copper/amber - heavy bourbon, vanilla, and oak on the nose, dampening the base beer (high sweetness, no hop vibrancy), reminding me more of a barley wine, but the coconut and vanilla of the barrel are pretty nice - assertive hoppiness in the flavor, though - at least up front - a lot of citrus and pine - middle brings strong sweetness, bourbon/booze - booziness is particularly pronounced in the finish - tail end is oak and alcohol - strong lingering alcohol flavor - meh.

Copper Kettle Brett Golden Ale
Tulip at the brewery - hazy gold - medium tart nose with a nice mix of tropical and barnyard Brett character, a bit of lemon and flintiness - creamy texture - mildly sweet up front, with tropical Brett complimenting it well - dries out through the middle and gets moderately spicy and a little funky - a moderate punch of acidity finishes things off - well done.

Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout (Bourbon Barrel with Vanilla Bean)
Black pour with a thin foamy light tan head, with a really fun aroma of chocolate and cinnamon and vanilla and bourbon and a touch of Christmas mulling spices. Delectable flavor full of vanilla and coconut and chocolate, then a bit of bourbon comes in and the coconut flavor lasts a bit, then thereís a wave of cinnamon and poblano pepper heat, finishing with a touch of oak, vanilla and wee bit of bourbon. Really fun, loads more coconut than I though there would be, fun and subdued bourbon notes, and earthy sweet chocolate throughout with a kiss of pepper and cinnamon. Wow.

Hazy bright golden with a thin cap of white foam. Very interesting and lovely nose with some bretty funk mixed with lovely tropical notes of clementine and guava and mango but also with some hay and ole wheat malt and more eccentric fruity funk. Smooth and mellow but bright flavor with Belgian blonde malt, toast, fruity brett funk and fruity tropical nuances like on the nose--papaya, guava, clementine, with a smooth calming yeasty golden Belgian finish. Wowee.

Copper Kettle Chancellorís Champagne
Slightly hazy light golden hue with a thin white ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Tart and acidic nose with some lemon rind and German wheatiness. Tart and acidic flavor too, but highly quaffable and refreshing with some lemon/lime rind notes and a bit of classic Berliner wheaty flavors in spades. Just tart and lemony and refreshing and very flavorful.

Thanks wchesser! Black pour. Smell is big cocoa sweetness with cinnamon and that peppery vegetalness. Taste is quite spicy, medium sweet,cocoa, vanilla, green pepper. Palate is a tad thin. Overall the spice is a bit too overpowering. Still a very fun try.
