Founders Centennial IPA 3.1  
Founders Brewing Company Grand Rapids, Michigan
Todella makea, humalointi yllättävän kevyttä. Karvas, maltainen, ipaksi outo mutta kivasti juotava.

Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel 3.6  
Klosterbrauerei Andechs Andechs, Bavaria
I'm not usually bowled over by doppelbocks and I can't say that this is the exception. Don't get me wrong, it's perfectly drinkable. A nice mahogany colour, though no head or lacing. It's malty, toasty, a bit of molasses thrown in and a bit sweet. I just can't drink a lot of this beer type, it just doesn't do it for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Founders KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout) 4.0  
Founders Brewing Company Grand Rapids, Michigan
Barwa smoliście czarna, ładna beżowa piana, długo się trzyma, w aromacie dużo kwaskowej kawy i bardzo wyraźny aromat orzechów, czuć też przyjemną wanilę z beczki. Smak niestety pozostawia pewien niedosyt po genialnym aromacie, czuć głównie kawę i nuty beczkowe. Ciała mogło by być troszkę więcej, wysycenie średnie. Bardzo dobre piwo!

Hill Farmstead Anna 3.4  
Hill Farmstead Brewery Greensboro, Vermont
Draft at brett fest. Golden. Aroma of dry funky yeast, grainy malt and grass. Taste has mild funk, soft champagne yeast almost, esters and grainy malt. Not bad, but very overrated.

Young’s Double Chocolate Stout 3.4  
Charles Wells (Marston’s) Bedford, Bedfordshire
Barwa ciemno brunatna, ładna, obfita piana. Aromat czekoladowo-kawowy, w smaku wyraźna nuta cappuccino, niskie nasycenie, całkiem smaczne.

Founders Breakfast Stout 4.7  
Founders Brewing Company Grand Rapids, Michigan
Pitch black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, cacao, burnt caramel and toasted malt. Beautiful intense mocha flavour with a bitter chocolate coffee finish. A legendary beer that lives up to the hype. Extremely enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dangerous Man Peanut Butter Porter 4.0  
Dangerous Man Brewing Company Minneapolis, Minnesota
On tap at the brewery. Black body. Smells of peanuts and chocolate. Really nice. Tastes a little less refined. Peanuts, nutty malts, chocolate, but not as rich. Peanut finish. A little astringent. Medium body. Remarkably good, it must be said. Saved the day from a bunch of other dull beers here at DM.

Aecht Schlenkerla Eiche Doppelbock 3.5  
Brauerei Heller Bamberg, Bavaria
Erittäin vahva tuoksu ja maku. Savu oikeasti pääosassa muutenkin kuin lupauksissa. 8% ei maistu tämäntyylisessä tuotteessa yhtään liian vahvalta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stone Imperial Russian Stout 4.1  
Stone Brewing Escondido, California
(650ml 2015 bottle from Systembolaget web order) Pours pitch black with a small dark tan head and no lace. Aroma of milk chocolate, nutty roast, dried figs, dark fruit, vanilla ice cream, sweet dark malt, light coffee grounds. The flavour is drier than the nose would suggest, and roastier, with a nut and cacao character joining the burnt grains. Notes again of milk chocolate, dried dark fruit (esp figs and dark berries), vanilla, earth, char, ash, spent coffee grounds, dark caramel, and maybe some bittering hops. Off dry to begin, finishing bone dry with touches of warming alcohol. Medium full body, slightly oily, very soft carbonation. Probably slightly thinned compared to when fresh. Elegant, somewhat restrained, malt-driven complexity, far from a cloying sugar bomb, this is a good sipper that makes a nice shift from the contemporary adjunct-driven style.

New Belgium La Folie 3.9  
New Belgium Brewing Company Fort Collins, Colorado
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours murky maroon/amber with frothy head that fades quickly. Tart cherry from beginning to end with nice woody undertones from the oak.

Cloudwater DIPA - v13 3.8  
Cloudwater Brew Co Manchester, Greater Manchester
440ml Can - Hazy golden in colour, a bit like pineapple juice. Pine, grapefruit and passion fruit in the aroma. Hoppy and tangy taste with grapefruit, passion fruit, pineapple and some slightly spicy notes.

Aecht Schlenkerla Helles Lagerbier 3.6  
Brauerei Heller Bamberg, Bavaria
Bottle from Asao. A Top 50 Helles that is smoked and available at like 610 yen +tx for 500ml, sold! A sweet lightly smoked ham aroma on a deep gold body. The taste is smoked but smooth. Not as complex as other Schlenkerla beers but a really fun lager.
