Black Hog Nitro Coffee Milk Stout 3.1  
Black Hog Brewing Oxford, Connecticut
Pours black with medium, dense head. Smells like caramel, lactose sugar and some faint coffee. Taste is sweet caramel, warming to roast and coffee. Finish is bitter coffee. A decent stout.

Broken Compass She's My Cherry Pie 3.7  
Broken Compass Brewing Company Breckenridge, Colorado
On tap at the brewery. Brown/black appearance with a lingering tan head. Aroma of tart cherries, dark malts, light coconut and a touch of vanilla. Similar flavor, rich, malty, fruity and moderately sweet with hints of rum barrel spice. Medium body with soft carbonation and a pleasant finish. Nice.

Henniker Splitter 4.1  
Henniker Brewing Company Henniker, New Hampshire
I love a good smoke beer and this is a great one. It brings some sweetness, and then it tastes like your eating ribs. It's very flavorful and different from pretty much anything else you'll find locally.

Forbidden Root Toro! 4.0  
Pours murky apricot with nearly flat white head. Aroma of mango, passion fruit, papaya, incredibly fruit rich. Taste is incredibly sweet, a bit of booze but hidden well, loads of fruit, a bit of resin, sweet through and through. Medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation.

Weathered Ground Brewery Cool Ridge, West Virginia

Blue Blood Outlaw Series Rum Barrel Aged Quad 3.9  
Blue Blood Brewing Company Lincoln, Nebraska
Draft/Fest. A- Boozy, cherry, dark fruits, caramel. A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, beige head. T- Boozy, cherries, toffee. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, boozy finish. O- Big boozy beer. With some age I think this would be really nice. Some how I always seem to end my festival runs at the Blue Blood table. I avoid them all fest and then realize they always have something decent.

Nebraska Stray Cat 2.9  
Nebraska Brewing Company Papillion, Nebraska
Draft/Fest. A- Grassy, cat pee, citrus. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Grassy, bitter, pine, cat pee, garlic, onion. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- No where near as good as many NE IPA's coming out today. Maybe they used cat pee as an adjunct because it sure seems like that is in here. Meh.

Pacific Annex IPA Series No. 8 3.6  
Bottle in Seattle. I presume this is a bit old, but it is still drinking fairly nicely. Thicker head on a reasonably cloudy darker orange. Nose of pine and orange, some stale hop character as well. Sip is robust with orange and deep pine bitterness. Lots of resin, a bit sticky at finish. Gorgeous pine bitterness. Hops have left the front end but the finishing flavors are spot on. A solid, bitter IPA that is a nice break from hazy juice.

Magic Hat TFG 3.4  
12oz bottle - nose is grapefruit, resin and unripe fruit. Sip adds red ipa qualities. Not bad for a West 6th beer.

Code Coffee Milk Stout 3.5  
Code Beer Company Lincoln, Nebraska
Draft/Fest. A- Espresso, earthy, roasty, bitter. A- Black color, dark liquid, beige head. T- Coffee, roasty, earthy, bitter. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, earthy finish. O- Not sweet at all. Very earthy and roasty coffee. Pretty much like a pot of stale black coffee. Good but if you are after a mocha like stout, this isn't it.

Ellicottville Ski Bum 3.5  
Ellicottville Brewing Ellicottville, New York
12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy reddish orange with a medium rocky off white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet caramel malt and a little green apple with green hops.

The flavor is sweet fruity caramel malt with a decent bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, decent fruity hoppy pale with a little too much sweet caramel malt.

Other Half / Cloudwater Tough Call 3.6  
Other Half Brewing Brooklyn, New York
Canned 11/2017. Pours deep black, foamy/creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, lots of chocolate, light caramel notes, an interestingly piney hop presence. Straightforward and yet distinctly a blend of English and OH hops. Flavor is very roasty, chocolate, silky mouthfeel, piney hop presence. Roasty is the word here. Not amazing, but solid.
