hopscotch's rating

hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle… RBWG 2013… Pours muddy and light brown with a small, wispy, off-white head that dissipates faster than you can say “quick.” Smells chocolaty and nutty, but also wafts an inappropriate chili pepper component. Light to medium-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Odd flavor – bretty & yeasty with light mocha and a tart aspect that screams “INFECTION!” Fortunately, it’s a clean acidity instead of funky, foul or overly offensive. Finishes crisp and tangy. Not at all what a stout is supposed to be. Normally, I don’t care whether a beer is brewed to style, but this is really a low-quality brew. Ah well, I guess my CIB cherry has been popped. Where’s White Birch when you need them?

Draft sample at Parkville fest. Dark brown color, tan head. Aroma of fruity coffee. Taste is sour coffee.

RobertDale (6755) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Sample at Parkville Microbrew Fest 2016. Comes dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of tart fruit and coffee. Taste is tart fruit, dark fruit, coffee, chocolate, and malt. Guess I missed the point.

750 ml bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of citrus, roasted malt and light cocoa. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of roasted malt, citrus and coffee with a crisp dry tart lingering coffee finish.

djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle on RBWG bus. Pours a murky brown with small beige head. The aroma is herbs, metal, and roast. Thin mouth with weird off flavors, infected?

A black to mahogany body sits beneath a tall, frothy, lightly fizzing, med-light khaki head, which creates light lacing, and settles to a thin ring

This is a tale of two very different styles realizing they actually have a lot in common, interesting aromas and flavors with leather, weathered barn wood, red fruit, mellow creamy lactic notes, and mild green and yellow sourness merging wild yeast character into a coffee stout with brown notes of chocolate, woody coffee, dark fruit, and oat creaminess on a smooth, medium body with medium carbonation leading to tart red fruit dominant residuals with accents of the other previously mentioned components

An interest in wild ales is a must heading into this one as CIB brews everything with wild yeast and/or bacteria, I wasn’t quite sure what I would taste based on the description, but they pulled this off, and I’m surprised at the very low scores, I’ll get this one again

1pt 9.36oz capped bomber, bottle number 516, served at 45º into 14.7oz Zwiesel Cognac snifter

Earlier this year I asked Chris to bring back my Iowa tick, and he came through in true style with this bottle that we shared at a tasting. Glowing brown appearance, sweet tart aroma and similar sweet tart flavors, hints of mosquito repellant and, as others pointed out, tomato puree. Oatmeal cookie. No hint of the coffee. Overall, it’s almost drinkable and I’m almost disappointed. It’s not nearly as bad as I had hoped and expected.

Bottle at a Seattle tasting. Sour breakfast ale, rich brown, small head. Strange beer, obviously. Fruity sweet aroma, tart body, skunky dusty chocolate. licorice. Not as bad as we would have thought. Style is kind of insane, so hard to judge it against that. Odd beer.

mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of smoke, leather, coffee, and sour notes - not cohesive at all. Flavour is quite terrible, but not a disaster somehow, with notes of coffee, wild yeast, sour notes, and vomit. Man, this is bad, but certainly not quite as bad as the overall rating suggests.

Amazing. Drinks like Jesus juice. This is a total desert island beer, seek this out.

kbudd19 (1019) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle shared by Ferris, not sure if I can thank you for this one buddy! Aroma..WTF coffee, and an Easton aluminium stick that Getzkey used when he played for the Kings. Taste is sour up front which isn’t bad, but the aftertaste is like chewing a peace of juicy fruit with the foil still on. Not very good.
