Four String Rectifier
on tap @ Hebron Brewhaus / Hebron KY --- Aroma of hops and malt. Clear light-medium amber, white head that sinks to a heavy rim, waves of lace. Taste is malt that segues neatly to hops on a medium fizzed swallow. Long finish shows a return of malt. Nicely balanced and complex.

Four String Solo Series #25: Ghost Ship Vortex Baltic Porter
750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Bottle 29/360. Didnít realize there were so many variants of this, but this didnít appear to be one of them. Pours a cloudy chocolate brown with a small beige head that settles into a thin ring, leaving some spots in the glass. Notes of toast, nuts, chocolate, fudge, molasses, and vanilla. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty, toasty mouthfeel. A little different than the description. I almost get a peanut butter in here; couldíve been tricked into thinking this was a variant. Not bad, but a unique take on the style.

Four String Vanilla Porter
12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 3/17/2017. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of vanilla, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted brown bread, light nuttiness/coffee, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big vanilla, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted brown bread, light nuttiness/coffee, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of vanilla, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted brown bread, light nuttiness/coffee, herbal, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/bready, fairly sticky, and slightly chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a very nice American style vanilla porter. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Just a bit too bitter/drying than I would have preferred; this still has really great malt complexity and balance with the vanilla bean flavors. A very enjoyable offering.
