Cycle Coffee BA Imperial Stout - Brazil Oberon 4.5  
Cycle Brewing Saint Petersburg, Florida
Bottle: Thanks Rene: Served in a Duvel glass: Black beer. Small brown head. Nose of ground roasted crushed coffee beans, some mocha, cream, immmense aroma! Wow! Soft and smooth coffee roast! Yam yam! Flavour has a great balance between the bitters, the coffee roast and the light sweet ish tints in between that seems to slowly disappear when the two others take the overhand. Well done! Aftertaste is coffee, coffee roast, light bitter, light mocha, some dark chocolate, coffee beans... Etc... Tasty! Low carbo, creamy light oily to silky mouthfeel, more than medium bodied. Round, creamy, soft, warm and coffee! This is how a good coffee stout sounds! Countbeer

Schneider Weisse Original 4.5  There’s probably some old German law that prohibits drinking Schneider Weisse in the winter, but Original was my preferred snow day beer. Pouring an unconventional amber color, this Hefeweizen has attractive lacing and a creamy head that lasts. Spicy, fruity, and yeasty nose. Taste profile includes banana, apple, citrus, clove, nutmeg, and coriander. Thick, full feel and just a hint of bright tartness at the finish.Definitely a lovely example of German Hefeweizen.

Anchor Brewing Merry Christmas 2016 Happy New Year 4.6  
Anchor Brewing Company San Francisco, California
Voici une belle surprise avec cette Merry Christmas 2016 Happy New Year de chez Anchor. Même si le titrage alcoolique est un peu faible (6,5% Abv) pour une bière hivernale et que celui-ci aurait gagné à être augmentée pour renforcer la puissance de la bière, celui-ci est bien utilisé pour résultat une bière harmonieuse, juste et agréable. L’étiquette présente une approche un peu différente des classiques, avec une nouvelle année sous le signe de la renaissance et du symbole de l’arbre pour le solstice d’hiver. Je vais être plus terre à terre et m’intéresser à notre breuvage qui doit être avant tout festif ! En verre, notre Anchor, présente une belle robe d’un brun profond et se pare d’une multitude de fines bulles la rendant des plus gracieuses. Une mousse beige, nappe convenablement la bière de 3 à 5 mm d’épaisseur. Le nez est très beau se portant sur la cerise, le pruneau et le café sur de jolies notes épicées de réglisse et de cannelle procurant une sensation de vin chaud. L’attaque sur le malt, le caramel et le réglisse est un peu en dedans mais prépare bien l’entrée en matière de l’amertume qui est douce sur des notes de café. L’arrière bouche s’intègre quant à elle parfaitement bien, soyeuse sur des arômes de cerise et de candi. L’ensemble est très chaleureux et parfaitement homogène. Le final laisse quant à lui s’exprimer des notes de cherry avec des belles variations autour de la réglisse. La longueur, malgré les 6,5 % Abv est très correct. En conclusion, il s’agit ici d’une très belle bière qui brille par son équilibre. Avec un peu plus de puissance et un brin de complexité en plus, je ne serai pas resté sur terre...je serai monté sur le pin! jybi

Hill Farmstead Anna 4.8  
Hill Farmstead Brewery Greensboro, Vermont
Bottle. Appearance: light, rather clear yellow. Smell: nice brett, citrus, and subtle hops aromatic. Taste: unique use of bretts, balanced with citrus, and subtle barnyard notes. Unique combination between texture and feel, perhaps thanks to honey. Moderate to high dryness, moderately sour, high drinkability. Overall: Hill Farmstead. MatChar

 
Columbus Sohio Stout With Toasted Coconut 4.6  
Columbus Brewing Company Columbus, Ohio
Pint at Studio 35 before a the Dude-A-Thon on 1/15/17. Pours black with a thick light brown head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, slight coconut and roast. Malt and sweet coconut flavor with some rich chocolate before a roasty coffee finish. I might be scoring the flavor a little too high but I gotta tell ya, of all the coconut beers I have, this one is the most perfect in terms of coconut flavor. There’s plenty there, but you still taste everything else in there just fine. JaBier
