Raw cacao, grapes, bourbon, and a bit of ashtray. Valentine's day present from Britt. I love you, girl!

Track 7 Brewing Co. by Venus Venom

Get the cherries right away, then it fades into a light roastiness. Don't notice the chocolate. Seems more like a porter to me.

Flying Dog Brewery by Gonzo Imperial Porter (2013)

Chocolate and vanilla all in one. Perfect warming bit of alcohol. Great cheapish beer that cellars beautifully.

Stillwater Artisanal Ales by Cellar Door

Tran's Son is drinking a Cellar Door by Stillwater Artisanal Ales at Pangaea Bier Cafe

Nice and balanced, but unremarkable. Needs more carb too, but that might be Pangea's fault. Extra half star for the name.

Gueuzerie Tilquin by Oude (Gueuze Tilquin)² à L'ancienne

Tran's Son is drinking an Oude (Gueuze Tilquin)² à L'ancienne by Gueuzerie Tilquin at Final Gravity Taproom & Bottle Shop

This one's for you, Kevin! Stone fruit, rich acidity, and a lingering savory aftertaste. Tasty, but for the price I'd get Rueuze every time.

American River Brewing Company by Barrel Aged Rock Hound

In a blind tasting, I thought this was a rye amber. No BA characteristic at all, and it hides its 10% ABV deftly. Tasty, but off-style. Sky's the Limit (Level 34) Earned the Sky's the Limit (Level 34) badge! The Wine of Beers (Level 3) Earned the The Wine of Beers (Level 3) badge!

Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. by Negra Modelo

Tran's Son is drinking a Negra Modelo by Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V.

Always liked this one amongst the widely distributed Mexican beers. Full bodied but drinkable, with a slight apple flavor. Cerveza Matador Earned the Cerveza Matador badge!

Anchor Brewing Company by Argonaut Series Flying Cloud San Francisco Stout

Nice simple stout. Roasty, a little sweet, but still dry. I can't remember if I've ever had a stout by these fine folks before.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Nooner Pilsner

Tran's Son is drinking a Nooner Pilsner by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Nice and hydrating for a day of jackhammering, but this isn't nearly as hoppy as I would expect from Sierra Nevada. Definitely disappointed.

Propolis Brewing  by Wyrt Farmhouse Stout (2015)

Tran's Son is drinking a Wyrt Farmhouse Stout (2015) by Propolis Brewing

Loved the idea (especially dandelion and chicory!) but the execution was a little muddled together. Tart, roasty, and herbal is too crazy..

The Bruery by Oaked Old Richland

Tran's Son is drinking an Oaked Old Richland by The Bruery

Really big hoppy flavors, and really big oak flavor. Sort of like Burton Baton or Ol' Leghorn, but it's own sort of beast for sure.

Cigar City Brewing by Marshal Zhukov's Imperial Stout

Tran's Son is drinking a Marshal Zhukov's Imperial Stout by Cigar City Brewing

Roasty and drinkable, despite a major bloody soy sauce sort of flavor. Thanks Kevin! Heavy Weight  (Level 36) Earned the Heavy Weight (Level 36) badge!

Almanac Beer Co. by Cognac Barrel Noir

Sweet caramel cognac goodness. Worlds above the Tequila version. Then again, I am Vietnamese...
