    Actually, I never had the Imperial Helles, but the imperial stout and barleywine were outstanding.
    I plan on working my way through the rest of them over the weekend..

    also if you want some good Belgian Ale get a bottle of Kwak from bevmo. Good ****.
    I tried a bottle of Kwak for ****s and giggles, I used to know a Korean girl with the last name. Something about that beer kicks your but.
    Speaking of the Chocolate Bock, does anyone know if they sell 6'ers of it anywhere? I really liked it and I hate having to get a holiday pack to have some.

    Default Sünner Kölsch

    Last night at Pour House they tapped a keg of Sünner Kölsch. Not sure if there are any kolsch fans out there but there should be. I was very impressed. I wasn't in the mood for a hop bomb for a change and went straight for the kolsch. The Sünner Kölsch poured a hazy yellow with a nice foamy head that holds all the way to the bottom of the glass. The nose was grassy hops and beautiful, earthy malt with a nice dose of yeast. It drinks VERY smoothly and the taste is "just right" in a way that quenches your thirst, satisfies your need for a well balanced brew, has a very crisp character, and has you tasting something a little bit different in every mouthful. Honey, grass, grain, bread, butter. Completely refreshing. This is a beer I hope he brings back in Spring and Summer when it heats up even more. This is a beer I could drink a lot of lounging in the sun with some light snacks. Very nice brew.

    BP Black Marlin Porter. Good stuff. Good complexity in a beer that doesn't have the chewiness of some stouts. Good depth and smooth as well. I like.

    I was lucky to pick one up last night..... A+ on this beer!

    I'll admit, for me it was even a challenge to put this down (a challenge as such hasn't really been prevalent in my beer drinking over the past 5 years or so). This beer is what I was hoping the Double Jack would be. At a high ABV, the hops in the Hoptimum kick your ass! Insanely bitter from the hops, and such a wonderful hop taste. Very grassy and earthy. The plethora of hops mask the alcohol, at least while it was cold. I drank it quick to avoid risking a subpar beer when warm. Not sure if that would happen, but didnt want to take any chances.

    Also lined up for the weekend

    Sierra Nevada Estate Homegrown Wet Hop Ale
    Game Day Ice (So curious to see how bad this will be)
    BP Big Eye IPA (Haven't had this in years, always loved it, and want to re-evaluate it. Only $3.99 for a 22 oz, STEAL!)

    Delirium Nocturnum. Good stuff. Was bought for me by a coworker. Very sweet on the tongue. I dig Belgian ales but the profile of coriander/cloves/spices can get obnoxious after a while. However I think the booziness of this is keeping that profile in check. Digging it.

    Did you get the coriander in this one? Its a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, which would lend some notes of dark fruit and licorice before the coriander which is more prominent among witbiers.

    I didn't like this one personally, had it a couple years back. But at least you get a good buzz from it.

    Ballast Point is a great brewery that just isn't talked about much. Never had a bad brew by them.
