Fegley’s Brew Works Shang-High 3.7  
Fegley’s Brew Works Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
Saw this at beer store a few months ago. Picked one up to try. Bomber bottle served into a tulip glass. Beer is a hazy golden color with one finger white head which actually thins to a cap but then hangs for a long time. Some lacing on glass. Aroma is of spices and vegetables. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly bitter with notes of green tea, resembling vegetables and spices. Reminds me of a gourd type pumpkin beer. Beer is lightly carbonated and medium bodied. Over all a decent beer to try for something out of the ordinary. SteveOrz85

Tooth And Nail Fortissimo 4.0  Bottle (500 ml) at home. Split 2-ways. Thanks to Marc for this one! Pitch black with a small brown head, low retention, leaving some lacing. Aroma is decadent with loads of bourbon and fudge as well as fresh grounded coffee, vanilla, caramel and hints of anise. Taste is sweet but not cloying because it’s well balanced by the alcohol and it’s packed with flavors... again plenty of bourbon and fudge, nice fresh medium roast coffee, vanilla, caramel, floral notes, light berries presence and mild chocolate bitterness. Medium-full body. Moderate-medium carbonation. A bit oily and rather thick mouthfeel. Sweet and fudgey finish with coffee aftertaste and a nice alcohol warmth. We are pretty close to a world-class Bourbon barrel-aged RIS right here. Decadent, but well balanced. Fudge and coffee act very well together here. Really good! tom10101

OEC Vetus 3.5  Bottle. Pours clear reddish hazel, small off-white head, dissipates quickly with a bit of lacing. Aroma is acetone initially, fading with time, oak, woody raisins. Flavor is light tart, light funk. Light body, minimal carbonation in the end. Decent after breathing a bit. bytemesis

Artifex No Name IPA 3.1  
Artifex Brewing Company San Clemente, California
Draft at Mohawk Bend. Hazy gold color with a white head and thick lacing. Almost non-existent aroma with just a light hint of citrus hops. Flavor is lightly bitter with some sweet malt. Meh. BelgianBeerGal

Firestone Walker Nitro Merlin Milk Stout 3.8  Another fun one to order: "I WANT THE VELVET MERLIN" (as it was called at the bar weirdly). The palate is very pillowy and smooth, like drinking the end of a Wendy’s frosty. Pours dark brown/black with some nice vanilla and chocolate tones to it, without too much smokiness. Still, not the best nitro stout we’ve had recently (MILK CHOCOLATE). Would recommend for half off at happy hour with your booboo. meccahh69lol

Temblor Brewing Company Temblorfest Marzen 3.1  
Temblor Brewing Company Bakersfield, California
(En fût à la source): Très feuillu et épicé avec une base caramel boisé. Croustillant mais sucré à l’érable avec une amertume surprenante. Marheb

Other Half All Citra Everything - Double Dry Hopped 4.1  
Other Half Brewing Brooklyn, New York
Can. You go girl. Pours cloudy orange juice, medium off-white head, creamy and slow to dissipate with nice lacing. Aroma is passionfruit, guava, pine, grapefruit, dankness. Flavor is light sweet, very light bitter, juicy, but somewhat muted. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. bytemesis

Indie IPA Del Rey 3.3  
Indie Brewing Company Los Angeles, California
Draft at Mohawk Bend. Hazy yellow color with a nice white head and thick lacing. Faint aroma of wet hops but not much else. Slightly sweet flavor with medium bitterness that lingers. Meh. BelgianBeerGal

Trillium Cutting Tiles - El Dorado 3.9  
Trillium Brewing Company Boston, Massachusetts
Can. Pours cloudy orange juice, medium creamy orange-white head, good lacing. Aroma is very piney, grapefruit. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Old school flavors presented in the ultra hip NE IPA way. Trillium is at the top of their game right now. bytemesis

Lagunitas Sucks 3.9  355ml bottle. Pours a mildly hazy golden hue with an off-white head. Smells delicious. Resinous notes, caramel, honey, grapefruit, fresh pineapple. Basically., hop candy. Taste wise, sweet with resinous notes, grapefruit, passion fruit, papaya, some mineral notes, with some light alcohol burn that heads into sweet tropical fruit, caramel, mineral notes, and some citrus pith bitterness. This is solid stuff. Pretty much liquid IPA candy. Frothmeister

Creature Comforts Koko Buni 3.8  Very dynamic. Coconut, chocolate, milk chocolate, and super smooth mild coffee. Velvet. Like coffee ice cream. gregwilsonstl

Launch Pad Cape Canaveral Ley Lime Pie Saison 3.5  
Launch Pad Brewery Aurora, Colorado
Lightly hazy light golden hue with no head. Brisk key Kim sweetness on the nose with a graham cracker pie crust aroma. Nice smooth flavor that’s not too sweet and has that smooth zesty limey tone with light graham cracker and light Belgian saison esters. Wonderful and clean though a bit light. onceblind

Dunham Oro Zuur (Amarillo) 3.7  
Brasserie Dunham Dunham, Quebec
Tap takeover at Smiths in Victoria, BC. Great nose - salty and tart. Flavour is sour and fun. Very pale colour but lively taste. CapFlu

Temblor Pierce Road 3.7  
Temblor Brewing Company Bakersfield, California
(En fût à la source): Un éboulement de noisettes et pacanes, du pain grillé, des houblons épicés et une texture honnête et entière. Le sucre veut mordre mais on ne sent que ses gencives. Marheb

Rogue Hazelutely Choctabulous 3.4  
Rogue Ales Newport, Oregon
22 oz. bottle. I haven’t sampled at Rogue beer in years. Figured, "What the hell?" ... Deep brown color, thin lasting bubbly head. The aroma is bakers chocolate and subtle hazelnuts.

The flavor is a perfect blend of the their brown ale and chocolate stout. The mouthfeel has a medium body with soft texture. It really does finish super sweet but not cloying. Much easier to drink than a lot of other sweet stouts I have sampled. It is in fact a candy bar in a glass.
