Pours a dark mahogany, thin ivory head, quick to dissipate. Aroma of dark dried fruit, wood, smoke, chocolate, and plenty of peppery spice...a hair boozy. Nice full flavor, a rich fruitiness, trace of caramel, clove... Long lingering finish of dark cherry and earthy malt. Again a hint of booze. Good take on the style.

Bottle at Perís Almost gone tasting, March 2017. Wow I donít get this one...makes me think of a banana vinaigrette combined with a caramel flambe. Eek. Pours a dull mahogany with a light brown head. Maybe the base beer was good, but gets overwhelmed by tannin, barrels and sourness that creates an almost undrinkable mess with vinegar, spice, oak and tannin.

Adelbertís Whimsical Series: Hibiscus Saison
Tropical flavors were there but not overpowering or fake tasting. Nice color without looking like Hawaiian Punch. Good summer beer. Wife liked it. Proceeds go to breast cancer research, will gladly drink more for that cause. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Adelbertís Raspberry Sour
Bottle from Tavour. Kind of brick reddish orange pour - not what was expected. Nose and flavor are adequately sour and a bit funky. A little light on the raspberry, but itís there as it warms, especially. Medium bodied and moderate to high acidity.

Adelbertís Black Rhino
16 ounce sample on tap at a place in IAH called Republic. Aroma smells like tart cherries, basement, and some other strange esters. Somewhat transparent mahogany body present with a small, fleeting off white head. Starts with a tart, weird flavoring. Becomes metallic and astringent in the middle. Mild roastiness comes in late with a little chocolate. The esters make an appearance late. This is just a mess of a beer. I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt about possible dirty lines, etc., but it appears as though my tastes are not off.

Appearance: Deep chestnut brown. Mostly opaque. Ring of mocha foam Nose: Malt forward with roasty nut balanced by dark stone fruit and some yeast Taste: sweet malt, touches of roasted nuts, caramel and booze. Body: soft carbonation, lively and silky Parting thoughts: a nice quad. Hits the key points for me. roasty with good fruit aspects.

Adelbertís Philosophizer
Bright. Yeasty. Spice. Banana. Cloudy light orange amber with a thick foamy white head that settles quickly to about a quarter inch layer with some spots of foam left on the glass. Dry. Citrus. Yeast. Clove. And something like an aspririn finish. I wouldnít call this a saison at all. Itís more like a Tripel. And itís pretty good until the finish and then itís bad.

My Bottom Line:
Acetic acidity, bourbon-laced wood and earthy tobacco canít seem to gel in this flaccid barrel-aged concoction.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy dull red brown.
-Mouthfeel is a bit vinous, but mostly limp.
-The vinegary character is overdone.
-The base beer has been nearly entirely consumed by the barrelís microflora.

Bottle.

Adelbertís Tripel B (Bad Boy Brew)
Almost no head, clear copper-orange beer. Orange, coriander, bit liqueurish , smell, íhotí, strong hinting at alcohol and rich syrup. Liqueurish taste, alcohol sweetness, just a touch of coriander. Very slick - oily bit of alcoholheat. Arch-typical USA interpretation of Be beer. In itself not bad, quite OK. Thanks to Stefaan!

Oh my, low expectation, a Texas quadrupel? My bad. Bought on a wing and a prayer at Total Wine in Frisco, TX. It pours into my tulip glass with an inky blackness and a very slight, tan, skim of head. It offers a decent nose, plum, currant, a hint of floral. As good as that is the taste improves. Deep dark fruit, a slice of dark chocolate, a light spiciness and an acknowledgement of the alcohol. Carbonation almost nonexistent, no complaining on that, just the way it is. No question this is the best domestic quad I have had. It challenges the Belgians. Just check my ratings.

Deep, dark gold like real cider. Full white head. It smells like sasprilla or some other delicious soda... No thatís the one. Itís sasprilla or sasparilla or sasaprila or however you spell that. Itís too delicious to contemplate, so just drink up, or have a big red, or a sarsaparilla!

Adelbertís Black Rhino
Clear dark amber brown with a light tan rocky head thatís quite large in size. Rustic earthy nose of roasted black malt, old gymnasium, stale coffee and a earthy bitterness. Smooth but roasty and rustic flavor with dark semistale coffee grounds, Belgian esters, black malt acridity, and bitter dark cocoa. Just kinda okay. Gets a little tastier as it warms.

Can to glass - looks like grenadine with a wispy ivory colored head. Aroma is funky florals and perfume. Much fuller than expected, flowers come through decently with traces of berry, citrus Belgian yeast, hay, sort of a watery cardboard finish that kills it. Just decent... Extra points for a beer with this color and a decent taste.

Adelbertís Rusty Barrel Whiskybent Barleywine
Not as immediately accessible as Bigfoot, but an ultimately enjoyable barleywine. It comes on a bit strong, but like an outspoken friend, you come to appreciate its subtlety only after being initially daunted by its bluster.

Bomber sampled @ HopisHop B.U.M.B. 2016. 2013 Vintage. Dark brown, little bubbles. Nose is very oxidized, vinegar, sour cherry, acidic, varnish, this aint right even for a Wine BA beer. Taste is flat glue, varnish, acid, nail poolish, rubbish cherry & unripe fruit. This clearly ainít right. Varnish & glue body. Surprised at this being currently a top 50 Abbey Dubbel on RB, maybe a bad bottle?

Adelbertís Gypsy Belgian IPA
Bottle:   Orangish caramel in color, thick, thin to moderate foamy white head, little lacing.   A bit of a musty hop nose, a bit dank, some barnish and musty notes.   Not very bright.   Smells like a Belgian IPA, but the IPA part is very musty.   Muted hops, a bit citrus like, followed by that musty/barnish background.   Decent for what it is, but guessing that after 13 months its mellowed out quite a lot.   Still a little bubbley on the tongue, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a big musty/barnish citrusy hop profile.   Would be nice to try this one a bit fresher, but as is fairly intriquing.   Thanks Bill!
