Bottled 20-03-18. Very malty, not much IP in this lager. Fruity, some tangerine. Fairly sweet, lager'ish, low on carbonation. Very soft. After a bit of time/warming a big amount of buttery diacetyl shows up :( not nice at all.

Canned 28-02-18. Too malty for the hops used. Not really juicy, moderately bitter, good amount of stone fruits. Needs either more bitter and resin for a westcoast, or more juice and fruit for a NE. Now it just seems half finished.

Batch 1731. Them sneaky buggers used peated malts, fun surprise! Thick and creamy. Little bit of tonka adds sugar loaf and balances with the peat. Hints of cinnamon and cacao left, maybe more when fresh? Still a very tasty and subtly sweet stout.

09A17. Odd. Combines a rye sharpness with some roasted malts, creamy mouthfeel and lots of chocolate. Very sweet (but Jopen, so that was to be expected), milk chocolate. Reminds me of medical desinfectant. Drinkable, sure. Nice? not really..

Bottled 23JAN17. Lots of Chardonnay. Very grapey, boozy. Some wood, quite sweet. Underneath a solid saison, originally quite dry, some straw, little bit of bitterness, tiny bit of barnyard. Quite complex, and frankly quite delicious.
Incredibly flavorful for the ABV. Soft and creamy mouthfeel, good body. Nice hoppyness, little bit of bitter, very fruity. Juicy indeed! Tastes like beers with double the alcohol. Bonus for getting it right with this ABV.

Much sweeter than I remember from the base. Thick, rich, milky. Very subtle Bowmore smokyness going on. Real tasty!Earned the Verified Adventure (Level 42) badge! Earned the Hopped Up (Level 52) badge! Earned the Draft City (Level 8) badge! Earned the 2X (Level 64) badge!
LCI. Bottled 22-01-2018. Well hello! Obvious Omnipollo influences. Quite similar to Noa, little less synthetic but also thinner. Lots of chocolate, some hazelnuts.Earned the Sky's the Limit (Level 98) badge! Earned the Flamenco (Level 11) badge!
LCI. Thick. Medicinal flavors, not only because of the bottle. Licorice, bitter, fairly dry. Quite a good beer, but nothing special. Great fun bottle, though.Earned the Verified Adventure (Level 41) badge! Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 60) badge! Earned the Heavy Weight (Level 91) badge!
LCI @ BFG 2018. Let's just say Sorachi isn't my favorite hop by far. Used very well here, though. Quite a cheesy, umami flavor going on, with peach flavors following. Nice and thick body, good mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff!
