Cigar City Marshal Zhukov's Penultimate Push 3.9  
Cigar City Brewing (FCP) Tampa, Florida
750 ml shared by TJ. The coffee is here without a doubt. However, it's a tad muted. Vanilla was really hard for me to find. Pretty good based out of course, with mild lingering coffee after the sip. Mouthfeel and texture are appropriate.

Mikkeller San Diego Første Fødselsdag (First Birthday) 3.7  
Mikkeller San Diego San Diego, California
Reddish with a white head - Berry aorma - Malt body with a wood and berry flavour - Tart wood flavour with wood and berry goes into the finsih - This was good

Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen 5.0  
Brauerei Aying Aying, Bavaria
still the best at Okt. fest style. it just doesn't get any better. You must try it

Buxton / Lervig Trolltunga 4.1  
Buxton Buxton, Derbyshire
Couleur dorée limpide. Mousse correcte mais très peu tenace. Le nez est très puissant, à tel point que l'on s'attend à boire une une Double IPA et absolument pas une bière acide. On est sur un mélange de caramel, de résineux et de fruits tropicaux, c'est fichtrement agréable. En bouche il n'y a absolument rien à voir. On est sur des notes fruitées, effectivement sur de la groseille à maquereau, mais également de la pastèque en fin de bouche serais-je tenté de dire (oui je sais, les 2 n'ont absolument rien à voir). La toute fin de bouche paraît épicée, ou plutôt légèrement poivrée. Avec le temps ce sont les notes épicées qui semblent prendre le dessus. L'acidité est quant à elle très douce. Gros coup de coeur... un de plus avec Buxton. <3

Aecht Schlenkerla Eiche Doppelbock 3.9  
Brauerei Heller Bamberg, Bavaria
Bottle from system. There is a lovely medieval malty smell to this drink. Smells like some wonderful celler in Bavaria in 1500. Fantastic amber colour. The taste is sweet and oaky and a bit like chewing wood and malts and washing a beer through it. I think i love it but with all smokies, i cant quite commit to saying it.

Brew By Numbers 65/01 DDH IPA Number One 3.7  
Brew By Numbers Bermondsey, Greater London
50cl can de Malt Attacks, canned 22/3/2018, BB 22/7/2018, batch# G390/1. Couleur dorée voire paille sur trouble marqué et assez typique de ce genre de DDH voire de NEIPA, de fait le col est moyen voire absent. Arôme est houblonné bien rendu, simple Cascadian - agrumes avec de belles effluves fraiches de houblons, le tout rappelant le chanvre. Palais est épais avec un fini levure épicé marqué. Note citronnée, agrumes avec une pointe épicée qui revient sur la fin - sorte poudre d'ail. Malté et grains donnant la rondeur.

Heretic Chocolate Hazelnut Porter (CHP) 3.6  
Heretic Brewing Company Fairfield, California
Lots of chocolate; maybe a bit over the top but sure is fun. Retains a porter core however so something here for the purist. Dry enough.

Nebraska Reserve Series Barrel Aged HopAnomaly 3.0  
Nebraska Brewing Company Papillion, Nebraska
light golden orange. smells like white wine, nectarine and old IPA. has an old hop flavor, needs some dry hopping. wine forward but a little bitter. it's like a tropical fruit flavor but tastes really old

Jolly Pumpkin Clementina 3.6  
Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales Dexter, Michigan
pale yellow. 1 finger head. tart honeydew melon. tart kettle soured wheat and honey, wheat and melon heavy. delicious

Ballast Point Victory at Sea 4.0  
Ok so I know these dudes 'sold out' but I don't care as I think the beer remains of excellent quality. Case in point this number. More fruit than U expect for the style but sensible layers of coffee, liqueurs and yes even hops. A very correct choice at the end of the night.

Cigar City Marshal Zhukov's Penultimate Push 3.6  
Cigar City Brewing (FCP) Tampa, Florida
Oily and pitch black. looks like chocolate milk bubbly head. The aroma is a little bit of old coffee, cocoa, licorice, burnt malt. The coffee tastes pretty old and stale. like 8 hour old dunking donuts coffee. Oily and smooth mouthfeel. the stale-ness is annoying. everything else is fantastic.

AleSmith Double IPA 3.9  
AleSmith Brewing Company San Diego, California
Naranja turbio con pequeña cabeza de espuma de burbuja fina y corta retención; aromas a resina, hoja de pino, cítricos, fruta madura, flores y uva blanca, en boca entrada potente, licorosa, oleosa, se percibe el alcohol, amargor fuerte y persistente con final dulce, equilibrio entre la malta y el lúpulo, cuerpo medio pleno y carbónico medio, notas a miel y bollería, largo retrogusto, amargo y muy seco, compleja y correcta en estilo.

Orval 4.3  
Brasserie dOrval Florenville - Villers-d.-Orval, Belgium
A fresh one, bottled on May, 2018. Light brown color. Slightly bitter, and very sourish aroma. The taste was full and complex: sour cider with hints of hop, malt and Brettanomyces. I enjoyed it, Orval is totally different than the rest the of Trappist beers. Good stuff.

Chimay Bleue (Blue) / Grande Réserve 3.5  
Chimay Baileux, Belgium
Butelka. Bardzo ciemna miedź, lekko opalizujące. Piana gęsta, trwała, kremowa. Aromat słodowo-karmelowy, z nutami rodzynek i suszonej wiśni i delikatnymi nutami alkoholowymi. W smaku słodko z lekko wytrawnym finiszem. Goryczka bardzo niska, wysycenie wysokie. Piwo wybitnie degustacyjne - wypicie 150ml wystarcza i, mimo że smak nie jest aż tak intensywny i mdły, nie ma się ochoty na więcej.

Chimay (Red / Rouge / Ale / Première) 2.9  
Chimay Baileux, Belgium
Butelka. Kiepściutko, w aromacie i smaku wyraźnie wyczuwalne nuty alkoholowe, poza tym przykrywający wszystko karmel. Słodkie i jednocześnie wodniste. Wysycenie bardzo wysokie, piana kremowa, trwała. Rozczarowanie.
