  1. to øl yule mælk rum barrel aged 2019 imperial milk stout - brewed at de proef in belgium, 15.1% abv. this is probably the best example of the post shelton brothers new old stock that I've had, while the few to øl city beers I've had have been excellent it's hard to believe that they'll make a better version of something like this. this has a really nice mixture of beer flavors (albeit ones I don't normally associate with stouts) and rum flavors, it starts out with a nice mixture of raisin and dried fig with some oak and a tiny amount of apparent alcohol in the finish. this tastes more like a b
  2. is that the place that used to have a much nicer, older looking bar? I tried to go there the other day and wondered if I went to the wrong hotel on that strip.
  3. lawson’s mad river maple amber ale - 8% abv. I picked this up because it was a part of their year round line up for a while, which made me curious enough to overlook my dislike of amber ales. there’s something about the taste of malty beer this shade of brown that I really don’t like, and while I guess I’ve enjoyed a lot of older double ipas that are more or less this color they usually taste like hops and caramel malt. this smells strongly of the malt taste I dislike so much, but that taste works surprisingly well with the maple syrup and the small amount of piney american hops I get in the

  9. I ate at his bed stuy spot a few times when I lived down the street.
  10. finback bqe vietnamese coffee imperial stout with cocoa beans, mostra vietnam lotus coffee, vanilla bean and condensed milk. aged in bourbon barrels. 2022 - 14.8% abv. this is from the newest release of finback's oldest stout, I picked this one over the base chocolate and coffee version as well as the double banana coconut and double nut caramel that completed last years variants. the bqe variants are usually my favorite finback stouts, but this is a little bit hotter and sweeter than the way I remember previous versions and while you can clearly taste all the adjuncts the usual depth is missi

  12. someone told me that the overheating was a deliberate response to the early twentieth century influenza outbreak and was meant to insure people would keep their windows open.
