Four String Vanilla Porter
3/24/2016: Roasted malts and slightly dry, more bitterness and less vanilla when itís cold, but those reverse as the beer warms; fairly solid porter overall, but probably needs a touch more vanilla as it gets lost in the cocoa and other robust characteristics of the beer. 12 fl oz can from yudp.

Four String Skeleton Red IPA
12 oz 2015 can into a lager glass. Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, dark red-amber with a large, fluffy, off-white head. Very nice lacing and very good retention. Aroma: Moderately strong and hoppy; dank and earthy. Unappealing. Flavor: Medium+ bitterness; About average level of hops for an American IPA. Some spicy rye notes. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Overall: not bad but not recommended. I had this paired with another Ohio Rye IPA, Jackie Oís Hop Ryot, which was way more fruity, less earthy, less bitter, more complex, better balanced and lighter colored, but which sported a less frothy and durable head.
