Arcadia Cheap Date
Sharp session IPA, with lots of fresh lemon flavors, berry, cereal, biscuit, and grassy notes. Cereal malt dominates the finish, which is still pretty crisp. An herbal lemony profile.

Arcadia porter Rico
Pours black with a full, smooth, slowly settling, tan head. The aroma is subtle but pleasing. Most noticeable is coconut, along with vanilla and roasted malts. The taste is heavier. It has some sweetness to it, with coconut and vanilla standing out most. I find caramel, nuts, some light chocolate, and brown sugar. Vanilla aftertaste is mild yet lingering. Light in body, with a thin, creamy texture, and minimal carbonation. Its unusual since coconut isnít found everyday. That flavor isnít overpowering, and allows other impressions to be well balanced in this one.

Tap at Hop cat, Detroit. Pours very dark color, ruby tinge. No head. Aroma is bourbon for days, vanilla, toffee, figs, dark fruit, rich caramel, wow, the bourbon is beautifully done. Flavor is bourbon, plum, dark fruit, toffee. Reminds me of Central Waters bourbon barrel aged Barleywine. This is top notch.

Arcadia Battle Kriek
Draft to tulip at Arcadia in Kalamazoo. Looks solid; a cloudy amberish orange with fizzy white head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells tart, funky, and oaky with a nice cherry presence. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A touch of biscuit on the tongue as it warms as well. On the softer side, but solid nonetheless.

Arcadia Cereal Killer Barleywine
The aroma is malty, caramel and a little molasses. Pours a cloudy dark brown/copper with an off white head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is sweet and then a little bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Overall not bad, Iíve been frowning on barleywines of late, so this would probably be rated higher if I was more into barleywines.

Arcadia Thunder Trail
Cask, 5.3 % abv, shared with Finn at JDWís Briar Rose. Filmy layer blanketing the glassware. Clear amber in body appearance. Modest caramel aroma. Taste of brown malts, including moments of caramel, bread and chocolate, with some impact of berry fruit towards a drying finish. Medium bodied. Food friendly and quite alright (Birmingham 21.09.2016).

Arcadia Loch Down
Dark reddish brown beer with a thin creamy tan head. Nose of cocoa, chestnuts, and toasted brown bread. Flavor is more potent than the aroma with roasted dark grain, unsweetened dark chocolate, and bitter almonds finished with a toasty bitterness that lingers a bit, but becomes a bit acrid over time. Decent.

Arcadia B-Craft Black
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark black brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a strong roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly vinous burnt malt and brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.
