    Had a bottle of the Stone 15th Ann black IPA. Didn't wow me. I was trying to track down a bottle of the Stone Green Tea brew but came across the 15th and went with it. Not great. Unholygoalie covers it. Harsh but not bad. Just a bit of a disappointment overall.

    Now, otoh

    LAGUNITAS LITTLE SUMPIN' SUMPIN' ALE!

    Damn this is a fine brew! Smooth, with a grassy tang you'd expect from a strong PA. Nice sweet note at the end. This thing clocks in at 7.5% alcohol by volume but you'd never know it. I just dang love Lagunitas and Sumpin Sumpin is a terrific summer beer.

    Last night I had a bottle of Pike's Brewing XXXXX Extra Stout which I found peculiarly bitter. Got a roasty backbone with bitter cocoa and bitter dark roasted coffee and not much else. A little disappointed in that one. Right now I'm working on the first pumpkin beer of the not-here-yet fall season, Uinta Punk'n. Nicely balanced beer that doesn't smack you with over the top spices. Nicely mild beer that would probably make a good session beer for a nice fall afternoon.

    Nothing new lately just enjoying and re evaluating old beers. Kind of a dead spot until the winter brews (barleywines) come out

    Drake's Aroma Coma - recommended. Hard to find though. I think it was a limited run/release. Pour House got a case and we finished it in 2 hours. Good good stuff.

    Had the Stone 15th and realized it just the umpteenth brewery this year to do a black IPA. What happened to Stone starting trends instead of following them?

    Was able to snag a bottle of Dogfish Head Theobroma and loved it. Still a great brew.

    Sierra Nevada Life & Limb

    roasty malt with sweet caramel tone. good strong hit after a couple of swigs.

    although it's pretty good, but doesn't float my boat. I prefer hoppiness.

    Have been going into Eureka Burger in Claremont lately and they have about 5-6 taps that rotate every couple of days. This past week I have tried the Dogfishhead Punkin Ale, which had light spices but not much pumpkin flavor. Telegraph Petit Obscura. This is listed as a wild ale, good entry for someone wanting to try sours, without being overwhelmed. I also had the Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Wild. Lagunitas rarely fails to make decent brews, and this is no exception. Nice toasty malt flavor.

    Last night they were having a Bootleggers Brewery event, with a couple of special releases. Didn't stick around for the event, but still walked away with a free glass.

    Drinking a bottle of Stone/F&S/Troegs Cherry Chocolate Stout. Interesting. I kinda like it. The cherries add a sourness that cuts the rich malt, cocoa, and coffee tones. Nice and creamy. With what could come off as bad cherry flavoring, this beer has to walk a fine line between righteous brew and Nyquil cough syrup, something that I felt the Belgo-Anise IRS failed to do, at least IMO. I'm okay with this beer but I probably wouldn't chase it down again. I have another bottle which I'll keep to see if it changes any.
