    Working on a Flying Fish Exit 9. Insane floral hoppy scent that I cant get over. Palate is slight hop bitterness. Its being marketed as an Imperial Red Ale, and I'll admit this "style" if you will is quite underrated and a nice medium between IPAs and Double IPAs. I think I like these better actually. Not too big on reds, but an "imperial" red is delightfully palateworthy.

    I wasn't very big on Firestone's Parabola when I first bought it, but I had my second bottle a few nights back which was aged about a year, roughly - I forget when it was first released in bottle format. Anyways, this was outstanding! Definitely one of the rare situations where I find a beer is better aged. Normally I like the insane punch and harshness of a beer. I really think the barrel flavours were stronger in this aged beer, as opposed to having it fresh.

    Also, had a FW14 the other night and really digging it finally. Same as the Parabola, not too great when released, but with some age the barrel really comes through and is insanely easy to put down. No booze flavor at all.

    Ladyface just released their imp red, Amazon Red, if I remember correctly. Had a pint of it not really knowing what to expect and was taken back by the very hoppy profile. Seemed to me to be very IPA like with a darker body and slightly more malt. Packed a wallop too. I dug it.

    Friday night I had to drain pour a bottle of Bruery Dark Orchard. Damn you, wild yeast! Had it in the fridge since December.

    Mikkeler Beer Geek Brunch Weasel – Poured out a viscous pitch black with minimal head and a fairly strong aroma of rich malts and caramel. Flavor is very rich with tons of chocolate tones and dark malts. This beer is bursting with rich coffee/cocoa flavors with a viscous, rich, buttery backbone and some alcohol heat. Absolutely wonderful.

    Weihenstephan Vitus weizenbock. Not tasting much "bock" in this and to be honest if I hadn't known I would say it tastes like Franziskaner. Nice spices with a pretty clean and refreshing finish. Was hoping for something a little darker, though.

    Vitus is world class in my book! Weihenstephaner does no wrong as their lineup is consistently flawless.

    You are right though, it isn't super "bocky" at all. Great brew though!

    We did a tasting for some deli friends looking to put some Belgians in their lineup. This was the start.

    Attachment 2458 click on the pic to see it larger. A few that didn't belong but what the hey. Those were for the owner.

    BTW, every time I have a Brother Thelonius I wonder why I don't have it more often. Delicious.

    Bought a sixer of this

    Lucky Beer | Share the Good Fortune

    at my local Von's new shelf-in-the-middle-of-the-floor full of more mainstream micros(imagine Whole Foods w/1/4 of the adventure).

    The beer is passable/nothing amazing but the bottles rule.
