New Belgium Brewing Company by Cherry Almond Ale

Jon J. is drinking a Cherry Almond Ale by New Belgium Brewing Company

Kind of meh? Like a brown ale base with a kiss of almond, cherry. Toast, amaretto, malty, easy drinking. Inoffensive, potential autumn beer.

Innis & Gunn by Irish Whiskey Finish

Jon J. is drinking an Irish Whiskey Finish by Innis & Gunn

Tastier than I remember. Sweet, oak, hints of peat moss, floral, caramel and mountains of toffee, truffles, golden raisins, fruity. Legit.

Draft

Illuminated Brew Works by Hasselhopf

Jon J. is drinking a Hasselhopf by Illuminated Brew Works

Weird and funky, juicy/resinous hops, a lactose(?) note, and tons of farmhouse, hay, and zoo funk. Pineapple, grass, white pepper. Off beat.

You know what this has? Hops. There's dandelions, grass, and some pine. Floral. Plus the chocolate and roast and coffee. Really nice.

Heineken Brewery Ireland by Murphy's Irish Stout

Jon J. is drinking a Murphy's Irish Stout by Heineken Brewery Ireland

Properish glassware woo. Also approaching room temp. This style is better warmer it gets creamy and the chocolate pops.

O'Hara's Brewery (Carlow Brewing Company) by O'Hara's Irish Stout

Jon J. is drinking an O'Hara's Irish Stout by O'Hara's Brewery (Carlow Brewing Company)

Very tasty. Comparable to Guinness sans the nitro. Coffee, roasty, lightly smokey. Pretty damn drinkable. I'll check this one more time.

Nice alternative to Guinness, nitro smooth, hints of chocolate and coffee, nice smokey malts, and lots of medium roast grains. Quaffable.

18th Street Brewery by Imperial Blud

Jon J. is drinking an Imperial Blud by 18th Street Brewery

The other Abraxas. Super thick, cinnamon, vanilla, and big coffee. Thick ass body, and big roasty malt kick. Milkshake mouth feel. Cinnamon.

Jon J. is drinking a Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier Naturtrüb by Spaten-Franziskaner-Löwenbräu-Gruppe

Classic German hefe. Light, creamy, refreshing. Banana and clove. Nice hops round things out. I should drink more wheat beers.

Bières de Chimay by Chimay Rouge (Première)

Jon J. is drinking a Chimay Rouge (Première) by Bières de Chimay

Instant classic. I forgot how thick and rich this is. Cakey almost, big spicy and phenolic yeast, sharp dark fruit. Such a good shelf beer

Hubbard's Cave by Fresh One Hop Simcoe IPA (Fresh By 04.10.17)

Jon J. is drinking a Fresh One Hop Simcoe IPA (Fresh By 04.10.17) by Hubbard's Cave

Light and refreshing, very crushable. Has orange gummy candy notes, guava, agave, and resin. Not catty, but juicy and lean. Delicous stuff.

Logsdon Farmhouse Ales by Oak Aged Bretta

Jon J. is drinking an Oak Aged Bretta by Logsdon Farmhouse Ales

Really nice blend of Brett funk, farmhouse base beer, and light oak. Some booze creepin so I wonder how this ages. Thick body, hazy. Good.

3 Floyds Brewing Company by Zombie Dust

Jon J. is drinking a Zombie Dust by 3 Floyds Brewing Company

Still a classic and basically indicative of golden age three floyds. Not as sweet or juicy as the recent fad, but refreshing and bold.
