Alex is drinking a Double Crooked Tree IPA by Dark Horse Brewing Co.

So very good. Lovely balance, caramel, and lip numbing. Earned the Land of the Free (Level 6) badge!

Alex is drinking an Oak Cliff Coffee Ale by Deep Ellum Brewing Company at BBQ Village (Line outside Franklin BBQ)

Purchased at Quickie. Mouth feel not as good as Coffee Bender, but doesn't have that weird greenness CB recently added either.

Alex is drinking a Barrel Thief Oak Aged Imperial IPA by Odell Brewing Co. at Easy Tiger

Sweet up front and I agree with the previous check in on martini/vermouth sour notes at the finish.

Alex is drinking a (512) Pecan Porter by (512) Brewing Company at Stubb's Bar-B-Q

Very caramely, pecan flavor appears on long aftertaste. Earned the Taste the Music badge!

Alex is drinking a Deep Ellum IPA by Deep Ellum Brewing Company at Violet Crown Cinema

Listed as a "Bright IPA" on the menu. A little too bright for my delicate sensibilities. Coulda used more maltiness. Earned the I Believe in IPA! (Level 11) badge! Earned the Land of the Free (Level 5) badge!

Alex is drinking a Blakkr (Real Ale Release) by Real Ale Brewing Company at Easy Tiger

Possibly the least intense of the three Blakkr versions. Still hits the spot though.

Alex is drinking a Sweep The Leg - Peanut Butter Stout by Infamous Brewing Company at The Chicago House

Nice deep peanut smell. Legume-y throughout. Too much carbonation; this would be a 4.5 as a cask beer. Makes me want to find similar beers. Earned the Heavy Weight (Level 8) badge!

Alex is drinking a Gingerbread Stout (2014) by Buffalo Bayou Brewing at The Chicago House

Strong gingerbread smell, with that weird sweetness at the end of the inhale. 3 waves of GB flavor, kinda strong, glad this is 3 oz pour :-)

Alex is drinking a First One Down by Wasatch Brewery at The Chicago House

Pretty solid, although I'm not generally a winter warmer fan. I imagine drinking this after ice skating. I should buy some ice skates. Earned the Land of the Free (Level 4) badge!

Alex is drinking a Wick For Brains Pumpkin Ale by Nebraska Brewing Company at The Chicago House

Not really my style. Somewhat heavily spiced. Worth a shot (literally) though.

Alex is drinking a Valkyrie by Southern Star Brewing Company at The Chicago House

Cask with coffee. Very smooth with a hint of coffee finish. Compatible with the warm (to me) but rainy weather outside. Earned the Happy Brew Year (2015) badge!
