Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - Vanilla Bourbon Barrel 4.7  
Bottle/Fest. A- Vanilla, fudge. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Vanilla, fudge, Swiss Cake Rolls, bourbon. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Exactly what I would expect. Vanilla and rich fudge with a blend of bourbon. If you look really deep, you can find some oak, toffee, caramel, and marshmallow creme. Would love to have some bottles to hold on to. The only thing that keeps this from being at the very very top is that I feel like I could take regular BCBS and add some real mexican vanilla drops to it and get the same thing. Nonetheless, very tasty.

Destihl Dosvidanya Russian Imperial Stout (Vanilla Rye) 4.5  
Destihl Brewery Normal, Illinois
Can/Fest. A- Whisky, vanilla, fudge, oak. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Booze, whisky, oak, vanilla, chocolate. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, boozy finish. O- All the Dosvidanya beers are great and this is easily the best one yet. Lots of natural tasting vanilla. The rye simply comes across as a whiskey without necessarily any spice or rye notes but that's okay.

Jolly Pumpkin / Anchorage No Ka Oi 4.5  
Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales Dexter, Michigan
Lightly hazy rich golden with a thin rocky white head. Interesting nose of light Brett funk and super weird and inviting and enticing aromas of umami and saucy Chinese food. Crisp bright flavor that’s semi dry But features some kind of Chinese food notes that’s saucy and sesame seed filled with umami and lemongrass. Semi dry Brett finish. Really unique.

Brewing Projekt Purple Drank 4.5  
The Brewing Projekt Eau Claire, Wisconsin
Really good fruity sour. All the sharp edges are rounded off. The Aromas are volatile fruit almost perfume. Just right sourness. Body is full and perfectly complements the tartness. Great finish and carbonation.

Brass Foundry Cream Ale 4.5

Clear, deep golden color with nice white foam. Clean aroma with sweet malt notes. Full malty flavor balanced by mild hop bitterness as it should be. A very nice Cream Ale. Can drink this one by the gallon.

Long sweet bourbon, vanilla and maple syrup finish. Thick oily mouthfeel. Really nice, but KBS is just slightly better IMO

Anchor Old Foghorn Ale 4.9  
Anchor Brewing Company (Sapporo) San Francisco, California
Reddish-brown color, foam shades, tan-white, nice but moderately durable. Wonderful aroma. Dried fruits, raisins, hoppy, but also malty. Sweet, cognac, yet round. It has an extraordinarily full-bodied taste, raisins, honey, malt, but with hops and roasted-malt, it has an outstanding sweet-fruity-cognac, bitter taste. For me, this is the perfect dessert beer. It resembles lighter double-bock. Lots of aftertaste, lots of dried fruit at every point of the tongue. Alcohol feels a little bit, but it does come at a disadvantage. 0,355 bottle. Vörösesbarna szín, hab árnyalatos, barnásfehér, szép, de közepesen tartós. Csodás illat. Aszalt gyümölcsös, mazsolás, komlós is, de malátás is. Édes, konyakos, mégis kerek. Íze kiemelkedően testes, mazsolás, mézes, malátás, de a komlókkal és a pörkölt -sok - malátával kialakult egy kiemelkedő édes-gyümölcsös-konyakos, mégis "sörös", keserű íz. Számomra ilyen a tökéletes desszert sör. Világosabb dupla-bakokra hasonlít, csak felső erjesztésűként teltebb, összetettebb. Rengeteg utóíz, rengeteg aszalt gyümölcs a nyelv minden pontján. Az alkohol picit érződik, de nem válik hátrányára.Extrán ajánlom, persze csak a stílus kedvelőinek.

Anchor Porter 4.9  
Anchor Brewing Company (Sapporo) San Francisco, California
0.355 bottle. The bottle, the label is very nice, the beer too. A wonderful deep brown color with a red tint. The foam is also tinted, slightly lighter on top, and then darkens. And huge. Extra dense at the bottom, looser at the top. Cereal, yeasty scent with caramel. Later: coffee,-sweet prunes... Very balanced, very serious taste. The carbonization is perfect. The earthy-coffee-roasted aroma is perfect. The coffee aftertaste also. Full-bodied, oily, but easy drinkable. Extraordinary. Real port stuff :) Outstanding piece! Nice to meet you! Not cheap at us, but definitely worth it! *** Az üveg, a cimke klasszikus, nagyon szép, a sör szintén. Csodás mély barna szín vörös árnyalattal. A habja is árnyalatos, felül picit világosabb, aztán sötétedik. És hatalmas. Alul extra sűrű, felül lazább. Gabonás, élesztős illat, mellette karamell. Később egyre jobban érződik a kávés édeskés aszalt szilva is. Nagyon kiegyensúlyozott, nagyon komoly íz. A szénsavasság tökéletes. A földes-kávés-pörkölt aroma tökéletes. A kávés utóíz szintén. Testes, olajos, mégis jól iható. Rendkívüli példány. Igazi kikötői cucc :) Kiemelkedő darab! Örülök a találkozásnak! Nálunk nem olcsó, de mindenképp megért ennyit!
