San Diego Dark And Stark
Draft. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Sweet and nutty, some toffee, toast, faint fruity notes, and mild husky nutty notes lingering through the finish. Just the idea of a "Peanut Butter Weizenbock" should be a sin, but, whatever this was decent.

San Diego DeCoster Belgo
January 6th, 2017 - San Diego Beer Company has slipped into the North Park network of breweries through the new building on Ohio, where three tiny brew operations have just been set up. To ring in the new neighbor I stopped by to try the DeCoster Belgo Pale, a hearty, golden brew with a nice amor darkness and a good looking body. The smell advertises a rich and malty brew, with aromas familiar to amber brews, like caramel and red apple skins. The flavor uses more of a burnt caramel edge to express itself, with a hint of green apple, and a Bit-o-Honey sweetness that is a little off-putting on the first sip. The lower carbonation and slightly thinner body donít seem to help much, but with each sip the brew increasingly grows on me. Slow to warm to it, I come around by the end of the beer to appreciate what it has to offer, which is both direct and sweet.

San Diego El "Hefe" Weizen
On tap @ SDBC: Served with a lemon wedge and appeared as an opaque hazy glowing yellow. The aroma came up empty with no suggestions for my nose to go off of. The flavor is bland and boring with no real flavors happening other than some minor notes of wheat and the squeeze of lemon from the waitress who served me. Disappointing hef for sure.

San Diego Choco-Latte Porter
On tap @ SDBC: Poured a dark tan brown with a thin creamy layer of head. The aroma was tame yet had a presence of roasted down malts. Flavor is rich and is pure chocolate milk with a sweet base of lightly roasted malts in the background. Extremely smooth palate and my girlfriend almost started drinking it with a straw.
