    Bourbon Barrel Aged Third Coast (on tap at Bottle Revolution)

    I haven't seen any yet, but am keeping an eye out. Actually two eyes.
    Update: An email today from Stella says that this is among their "new arrivals."

    We'll strike out about 930 AM next Thursday for our journey to the mid-Atlantic/Midwest region. I'll bring the beers, guns and money (extra of items #1 and 3, if needed) if you'll bring the lawyer/s. More details to follow. I'll save a little extra room in the trunk if you're/I'm "feeling lucky."

    Narwhal Bourbon Barrel Aged (2016?)-Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

    "This beer is no longer brewed."

    One of the older products (I think) from their Trip in the Woods series.

    This was a corked and caged 750 ml bottle shared with myself () and divided over 2 nights earlier this week and probably bought at the River Mills, NC facility several years ago for somewhere between $15-20.

    Pour was a slightly cloudy, cocoa color with a small, tan head. Nose of baker's chocolate with a mouth feel that was somewhat oily and viscous (it's an imperial stout). Lots of cocoa on the palate to accompany, some semi-sweet chocolate, charred wood, dried/dark fruits, a drop or two of coffee and a fairly soft, smooth bourbon finish. The regular Narwhal is 60 IBUs and that sounds about right for this, too. The ABV however for the BBA version is a potent 12.5%. I like the original version but also greatly enjoyed this variation, too. Here's the ingredient list for the parent "compound," copied and pasted from the SN site:

    YEAST Ale yeast
    BITTERING HOPS Magnum, Challenger
    FINISHING HOPS Challenger
    MALTS Two-row Pale, Caramel, Chocolate, Honey, Carafa III, Roasted Barley

    Wood-Aged Bitches Brew (bottled on 01/12/18 0802)-Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

    I'm not sure who to credit for this one .

    Here's the DFH explanation:

    "Originally brewed in honor of the 40th anniversary of the release of Miles Davis’ 1970 landmark Jazz fusion record Bitches Brew, our ‘remix’ is a gustatory tribute to that analog masterpiece.

    Much like Jazz fusion, which blends different musical styles, our Wood-Aged Bitches Brew is a fusion of three threads of Imperial stout aged on oak and one thread of Tej - a native African honey beer - aged on Palo."

    I found this hidden in a DFH 4 pack carrier at the back of the top shelf of the beer fridge and, trying to go through some older beers before purchasing some new ones, this one jumped into my grasp this evening . Plus, female canines always remind me of a certain fake university with no morals/integrity .

    The 12 ounce pour took about an hour to finish with the first four ounces at garage temperature (about 55 degrees), then fridge temp (about 40-45 degrees), then room temp (about 65 degrees). Probably not much difference except a bit more dark honey at the warmer climate. Color was dark brown and a bit cloudy with a head that was thin and tan. Nose was chicory and unsweetened chocolate. Palate sensors registered the same with some coffee, a bit of licorice, charred wood and dark caramel with a hint of dark/amber honey. IBUs of 38 (I'd have guessed a bit higher, perhaps 50-60 range) and the ABV is 9% so it is indeed in imperial territory. Pleased to have one that's a bit over a year old but happy not to have spent ~$20 on a 6er of these.

    First there was Foolery, then Trickery, followed by a Ruse. Hardywood’s milk stout aged in bourbon, apple brandy and red wine barrels. The Foolery and Ruse have been reviewed here before, both are award winning. Unable to get apple brandy barrels this year to make Trickery, Hardywood created a new beer called Hoax, aged in regular brandy barrels. I was able to pick up a couple bottles of Hoax and Ruse from the brewery and tried the Hoax last night.

    First off, poured dark brown, bit of a foam head, 13.5% abv. It’s sweet and a bit boozy, with a bit of chocolate, marshmellow? Toasty aftertaste. Very good and a bit unusual. I think it suffers from not being as good as Foolery and Ruse. I’m going to let the 2nd bottle sit until the fall and try again. Just another great example of the barrel aged series of beers from Hardywood. Both their gbs and milk stout variants are well worth the price.

    Which tailgate?

    (shameless)

    Seriously, Hoax sounds wonderful.

    Taking the Caliente (not barrel-aged) and the Apple Brandy Barrel-Aged GBS on our Columbus/Chicago trip next week to share with our son. Slowly working my way through the 2018 GBS Complete set.

    Don't Be Mean to People (no "canned on" date)-Ponysaurus Brewing Company

    A golden rule saison or NC farmhouse ale, both being printed on the can.

    Pretty local!

    Pint can stolen, err, collected from older daughter and her husband for kiddie and dog-sitting recently.

    Poured vigorously into my oversized Ommegang tulip, leaving the last couple ounces in the can (for sipping a bit later) as the head was somewhat voluminous/frothy . Color was yellow-orange-amber with wet straw aromas. Tastes differed as they mellowed into apples, oranges and pears with a bit of barnyard, finishing with a pinch of black pepper. Untapped quotes 30 IBUs, an accurate number or maybe guess on their part. ABV was 6%. This would be very tasty with a plate of fresh fruits or an entree like sweet and sour shrimp or chicken. A very good brew.

    A Charlotte client was insistent that we have lunch at Olde Meck and the visit Lenny Boy yesterday. “Ow! My arm! Quit twisting!” More to follow.

    I really like this beer. Glad you enjoyed.

    Any injuries involved?

    Do we need a Tripping William "rotator cuff" or "beer elbow" vigil?
