Walking Man Jaywalker Russian Imperial Stout - Bourbon Barrel 4.5  
Walking Man Brewing Stevenson, Washington
On tap at the 2017 Fort George Dark Arts fest. This was listed as a 2013 keg. Colour...solid black with a thick khaki head. Nose...massive Bourbon aromas with oak, vanillin, marshmallow and caramel. Palate...big, broad shouldered and incredibly robust, this stout grips your mouth and doesn’t let go! Huge waves of Bourbon soaked oak and deep, dense bittersweet chocolate are the first to make their appearance and then reinforcements come in with burnt vanilla cupcake, treacle, sailor jack and Christmas pudding. The finish is exceedingly long (thank goodness) and brims with Bourbon and toffee. As far as I could tell, there wasn’t even a hint of oxidation for this three to four year old impy stout. neepsntatties

Black Project Starfire 4.7  Hazy golden with a thin white cap. Lovely earthy perfumey potpourri and patchouli and lime zest. Crisp tart sourness with lime zest, perfume, potpourri and a tart citric finish. Really amazing and pleasant and tart, with a enticing floral potpourri herbal touch. Wow. onceblind

Cerebral Barrel Aged Here Be Monsters 4.7  
Cerebral Brewing Denver, Colorado
Inky black hue with a rich foamy tan head. Amazing rich deep bourbon and woody aroma with rich boozy dark chocolate. Smooth rich earthy cocoa and sweet dark chocolate flavors with a bit of hot woody bourbon and oak char and more cocoa and more bourbon. Rich and roasty and chocolaty, boozy sweet and tasty as hell. onceblind

Trillium Congress Street IPA 4.5  
Trillium Brewing Company Boston, Massachusetts
Pours a golden orange with a decent head which dissipates fairly quickly. Pine and citrus flavors with a good amount of hop flavor. This continues to be my favorite non DDH from Trillium. I wish they made it more often. JBell14

Westmalle Tripel 4.7  This beer is pretty fuckin great. Pours with a beautiful golden cloudy appearance, and has a yeasty, hoppy aroma and a creamy, soft palate. The 9.5% is pretty well hidden, with some very light bitterness and fruitiness and hoppiness. Exceptionally delightful. Let’s see if Rate Beer lets us saying fuckin... meccahh69lol

Smells like a hops in a bag of oranges. Very hazy amber, great soft head. Smooth citrus bitterness, grows and balances with a nice citrus funk. krumbum

Fat Head’s Hop JuJu Imperial IPA 4.5  
Fat Head’s Brewery Middleburgh Heights, Ohio
Pour burnt orange with a one finger off white head with outstanding lacing. Aroma is of straight up weed, citrus, tropical fruits, resinous pine, herbal hops, and grassy hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some onion/garllic dank flavors. Has a medium-fulll body with a creamy mouthfeel and dry, pretty bitter, long, lingering finish. Overall, a fantastic, super dank DIPA that is very similar to Stone’s Enjoy By. skmikeg

Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0 4.6  
Stone Brewing Escondido, California
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a murky gold color with a small white head. The aroma is heavy tropical fruit and hops. The taste is very similar to the nose. An excellent beer ordybill

Kirkland Signature Light Beer 5.0  Complex and nuanced palate presenting with a suggestion of citrus and finishing with hints of pituito-serous. Pairs well with roasted pheasant and pong based games. Kprincell

Cigar City Jai Alai India Pale Ale 5.0

From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Technobabylon. Smoothness and refreshness are its more remarkable qualities. Full.of tropical fruits with a non-agressive bitterness inciting to drink more josanguapo

Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Tropical IPA 4.6  I bought a six-pack of the non-Beer Camp version of this beer; presumably it’ll be a full-time, at least a seasonal offering now from Sierra Nevada. Bottle poured briskly into an oversized glass. Clear golden-orange color. Lots of foamy white head with residual lacing as you drink. Carbonation is very visible. Aroma is mango, papaya, tangerine, peach, freshly cut grass, and hop resins. Flavor is mango, papaya, passion fruit, tangerine, Saltine crackers. Mouthfeel is somewhat slick, lightly residual, softly chewy, medium dry. Perfectly balanced sweetness and bitterness. Very clean-drinking beer, and an easily drinkable one – particularly when you consider the 6.7 percent alcohol percentage. It’s an IPA that drinks like a session beer. shawnmurphy
