Holy fucking brownie. So rich. Pure choco cake on the nose, dark chocolate, toffee, choco syrup... mouthfeel is thick and creamy, taste is deep & again super rich, with those cacao nibs lasting forever. Best CW stout yet? Would love a BBA variant on thatEarned the Beyond a Shadow of a Stout (Level 12) badge!
That one is also pretty vinous, but has way more fruit character, pure black currant juice with funk and extra tannins. Still a lot of controle of the acidity level, really fun.Earned the La Crème de la Creme (Level 56) badge!
Thick, luscious with bug cacao nibs & big soft cassia bark bringing a light spiciness on the finish. Really nice base, sweet but not too much w/ the cacao bringing balance w/ a very light hint of roast. Vanilla from the bourbon too, bit of coconut. Tasty!
Full on wild black currant and raspberry, very bright! Not overpowering though, far from a shake as it has a real balance with the base. Mild lactic acid, light to mild wheat, some bretts... easy drinking but entertaining enough.
Mandarine, apricot, mango, bit of pineapple... basically a multivitamins juice. Palate has more mango and stone fruits, very bold with a bit of booze and a spicy edge to it, cool stuff!Earned the Cheers to Independent U.S. Craft Breweries (Level 96) badge!

Holy shit! Werther's original in a glass. Tons of milky caramel, backed up by sweet and spicy rye whisky, warm but perfectly integrated. Decadent treat. Vanilla, choco sauce, toffee, coco, ... sweet but in the best way. Love it!
Weirdly there is a big lemongrass note that bothers me a bit. Other than that the base is nice on coffee and port, but if sharpness from the whisky. Good but I am not a fan of that lemongrass in that blend.
Smells hugely like coconut, followed by bourbon, killer. Tastes is in between a milk imp stout and a barley wine, but with loads of coconut again. Bourbon too, but not as much as expected, nice balance. Chocolate, toffee, vanilla, and bourbon again after.Earned the Bottles Up badge! Earned the Stout Day (2020) badge!

Big boy wheat wine. Super warm boozy rum on a big fat base on super sticky toffee and molasses, dates, port, coffee and light soy. Over the top but in a "it's saturday let's get fucked up" good kinda way.
Nelson! Not super vinous but definitely going toward white grapes and grassy notes. Candied apricot, orange pith. Very grassy on the palate with a super smooth earthiness blending with icing sugar on the finish, not your obvious nelson ipa, lovely.
