Diacetyl aroma and taste. Had my wife try it without mentioning flavors. Same conclusion. Surprising after 3-way success. Batch issue?

Fort George Brewery by All Seeing Pie

This was surprisingly good. Barrel character, vanilla, bourbon is there. But the apple and pie spices really work. Sweet, but drinkable

This seems to be mellowing out. The spice is still very much there, but it's starting to balance out with the barrel/bourbon.

Base Matryoshka and add in a very balanced blend of cocoa? Yes please. Another very nice version of this beer.

Hair of the Dog Brewing Company by Side By Side

It's out of balance. Strange flavors, almost like this has some "stone" like character to it.

Reach Break Brewing by Hadalpelagic With Cocoa Nibs And Vanilla

The cocoa and vanilla are very lightly noted. Mostly it's an easy drinking balanced imperial stout.

Reach Break Brewing by Amoeba Session IPA

Not sure if at 5.1% it's a session... but it's great. Lots of flavor, some resin. Excellent execution.

Reach Break Brewing by Brownie Stout

A solid Imp Stout. Some coffee and chocolate notes. Goes down very easy. barrel influence is light.

McMenamins by Rice, Rice, Barley

I don't know if this is getting long in the tooth. It was not good. Huge malt sweetness followed by harsh bitterness.

McMenamins by Slow Jams Double IPA

Hops are a tad muddled, the munich comes through a bit. Overall it's okay.

AleSmith Brewing Company by Speedway Stout (Vietnamese Coffee)

Just as always, a very solid coffee imperial stout. That it holds up well at FOTD speaks to how good it is.

Fremont Brewing by The Rusty Nail (2016)

marcus is drinking The Rusty Nail (2016) by Fremont Brewing

This was honestly incredible. Bourbon, cinnamon, licorice - which has sorta turned a bit raisin like, but in the best way.

Fort George Brewery by Dark Matter

Nice thicker MF from the oatmeal. The pinot noir comes through, little earthy and bitter. Not bad.

Fort George Brewery by Matryoshka With Cocoa Nibs & Raspberries

marcus is drinking a Matryoshka With Cocoa Nibs & Raspberries by Fort George Brewery

Decadent, The barrel character was already great in the base beer. The cocoa and raspberry blend in perfectly. Fruit is not medicinal.

Fort George Brewery by Subtle Hyperbole
