Founders Sumatra Mountain Brown 4.1  
Founders Brewing Company Grand Rapids, Michigan
A 355ml bottle with a best by date of 31st January 2017 and poured into a Moonzen teku glass. It poured a clear dark brown colour with a nice two finger tanned head that had decent retention and left great lacing. Aromas of coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and lightly bready. Tastes similar to the aroma with roasty coffee, chocolate and caramel with a hint of vanilla and nuttiness on the finish. Smooth, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall it’s a nice Brown Ale that doesn’t feel like a 9% abv beer and drinks easily. It’s one of the better Brown Ales around but not quite as good as Prairie Okie though (in my opinion), but that one is barrel-aged. davidezdonz

The Bruery Melange #14 4.0  
The Bruery Placentia, California
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to a snifter showing a cloudy, brown color, with a modest layer of tan foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was dark malts, cocoa, a touch of coffee, caramel, sweetness, dark & dried fruit, a bit of oakiness, barrel induced vanilla, and ready alcohol. Ditto on the flavor, with now palatable booze & warmth, better than medium body, with low carbonation, almost syrupy texture, and a touch of tannic bitterness. An excellent sipper. tmoreau

Trillium Little Rooster 3.2  
Trillium Brewing Company Boston, Massachusetts
Can 1 pt. Pours a cloudy, opaque almost murky orange golden with a small, white head. Heavily dank aroma, clearly loads of dryhopping. Medium body, carbonation to the low side, fruity but fairly dry before an intense hop soup ending. A very trendy Pale Ale style! 280916 CloakedDagger

Lord Hobo Brewing Company Woburn, Massachusetts
Can 1 pint. Pours an almost clear golden with a small, white head. Dank, resiny nose, piney as well. Solid body with a rich malty backbone. Bitter finish alright, bot not extremely so. Smooth and pleasant drinking. 280916 CloakedDagger

Newburyport Green Head IPA 3.3  
Newburyport Brewing Company Newburyport, Massachusetts
Can 35,5 cl. Pours amber with a slight haze and a small, white head. Nose is more perfumy than citrusy, subtle perfume. Body is rich and caramellish, bordering toffee. Slightly greasy hops late leading to a late, solid bitterness. 280916 CloakedDagger

Boswell Artisanale Chipotle Brown Porter 2.6  
Boswell Brasserie Artisanale Montréal, Quebec
Poisson fumé au nez ou chipotle dans un fumoir qui sert aussi ŕ fumer du saumon ou autre espčce. La bouche est moins marine mais piquante et trčs peu appuyée par les malts. Décidément, la force du piment tue ce qui pourrait bien ętre complexe. Difficile ŕ boire. Pas pour moi. SlovakSniper

Alpine Beer Company Hoppy Birthday 3.8  
Alpine Beer Company (CA) Alpine, California
Flaska pĺ Bishop Gustav. En zestig och torr APA för man väl säga med 5,25%. Bra kropp i bakgrunden med lite smörkakor som skapar balans mot den citruszestiga och gräsiga gröna humlen. Gott. Vignale
