608.365. Crème Brûlée by Southern Tier Brewing Company. 2.5:5. 9.6%. This has an amazing smell and just a great caramel flavor. This is just a great beer experience filled with exactly what you’d expect from a crème brûlée.
606.365. Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew by Dogfish Head Brewery. 1.5:5. 9%. This thing was almost impossible to drink at first. Once it warmed up, the flavors came to life for me. Not really like anything I’ve had before. The alternate bittering without using hops is unlike anything I’ve had before and takes a lot to get used to.
603.365. Hard Chocolate Cherry by Mike’s Hard Lemonade Company. .5:5. 5%. It’s like an overly sugary choc Cherry cordial. I am not a fan. Leaves a nasty taste in the mouth. I had to give it away to a friend who likes this type of nastiness.
600:365. 120 Minute IPA by Dogfish Head Brewery. 4:5. 18%. This is a great example of the Double IPA range but really it’s almost more like a triple or quad based on the smoothness of the hops and the sweetness of the flavor. This beast is hopped continually for 2 hours, and then dry hopped for a couple months. Very hard to get and the bottle I picked up was up on a shelf in a local liquor store. If you loves IPAs then this will bring it home for you. Just a wonderful melding of aromas and tastes. Can’t speak more highly of this beer.
596:365. 2XRye by Southern Tier Brewing Company. 2:5. 8.1%. Interesting flavor that’s reminiscent of a double IPA but with distinctive flavor differences. There’s some sweetness but you’re left with a dry flavor to end.
595:365. Vanilla Porter by Breckenridge Brewery. 2:5. 4.7%. Nice bitter notes that aren’t overpowering. Very smooth mouth feel. Little light, but that’s to be expected for a porter. The vanilla makes a decent appearance.
