Port Santa's Little Helper '10 imp stout: I had this in the fridge for a few months and was looking forward to this. When I poured it out there was a couple clumps that came out. Assuming it was yeast that had settled at the bottom I began drinking. Very boozy with a brandy like character. Unfortunately the booziness was overshadowing the rest of the beer. Faint chocolate and strong bitter coffee. Then I came upon some sort of jelly-like substance that seemed like fruit that had not been filtered out during bottling. It wasn't moving, so that's good, but it had me unsure. Overall I was a bit let down by the beer. I look forward to comparing it to the bottle I just bought off Mike.
Alaskan Smoked Porter '07: part of the beer PIF I just received. Seems like age has mellowed the beer out and it is incredibly smooth! Smoke is obvious but not overpowering. Excellent post-huge steak dinner selection and I only wish I drank it with the steak dinner and not afterwards.
Saint Arnold Divine Reserve No. 7: another beer PIF bottle (thanks Justin!) I'm assuming this is a dubbel because it reminds me of the St Bernardus Abt 12 I had recently. Per my notes: Winey fruit beginning, booze spice middle, and malty chocolate mocha finish. Excellent! Loving this one!
