Luckily only family members can get a growler fill, so Iíll be drinking it while cheering on our guys this eeekend.

    As a side note one of the other family tree only offerings is a bourbon barrel aged barleywine at 14%. I havenít opened mine, planning on bringing it down for Mr. West and Devildeac this fall. But apparently the reviews have been so good theyíve entered it in the international judging I think in Australia this year.
    Both sound amazing. I'll certainly be thirsty...

    Hardywood Rye Barrel GBS. Imperial milk stout off their gingerbread stout variant list. 12% abv 55 ibuís, but I would have thought much less. You can really taste the difference between the bourbon barrel and the rye barrel. Both are good, I thought I liked the BBA better but now Iím not so sure. Itís not quite as boozy, maybe a little sweeter? Very nice addition to the 2018 lineup.

    Rum Barrel Pumkin - Hardywood ( should have mentioned this was all part of a flight). 12.3% how do you measure .3? 21 ibuís.

    This is not a stout, much lighter. Definitely rum forward, but not much pumpkin to me. But I liked the rum. Makes me want to open my Rum gbs.
    Have a bottle Iíll save and open come fall. Very drinkable, lighter than I imagined and I liked the rum and low ibuís.

    More good stuff. I suspect I'll have some GBS/variant reviews forthcoming next month after our son and his wife visit early April and/or after our trip north over Easter weekend.

    Black Currant Bam! (draft)-Broomtail Craft Brewery (probably brewed for their 2nd site, The Sour Barn, about 2.5 miles away)

    Drink coastal (Wilmington, NC)!

    Half pint after work today as a palate cleanser for the following 2 posts.

    Purple haze! Looked like grape lemonade-no head with mildly sour scents. Tasted more like a berry-lemonade with a bit of pucker (it's a sour ale) and a blueberry/blackberry/currant (d'oh!) finish. Mild tartness and not really bitter if that makes sense. I'll guess IBUs of 10. The ABV was 5%. This would be a very pleasant warm weather beer before diner with a plate of fresh fruit.

    I'm not sure I've ever had any of them, and, if I did, I'll claim amnesia anyway.

    From 10/2/16:

    Think BBA Triple Overhead run through a Randall full of your favorite coffee beans. Take the Allagash Tripel, incubate it in some old Jim Bean barrels and then add cold press local coffee. Pour from a corked and caged 750 ml bottler was a cloudy, straw color with a generous, lacy, fizzy head that lingered throughout most of my 1st (and 2nd ) 5 ounce pourings. Nose of banana, orange, whiskey and a light roast java. Taste was a cornucopia of flavors, included the expected bananas, light/medium brown sugar, a little black pepper, orange, booze, toasted coconut, vanilla with a very subtle, but noticeable coffee finish. August West graciously contributed this delightful concoction and he and I consumed most of his offering. I'll guess IBUs of 20 and the ABV was 10.8%. Definitely a nightcap (even though we sipped this at noon ) or dessert beverage. Ingredients below:

    Grains: Allagash 2-Row Malted Barley Blend
    Hops: Tettnang and Hallertau
    Spices/Other: White Cane Sugar, Cold-Brewed Coffee
    Yeast: House

    So happy to have sampled this after our younger son-in-law raved about it a couple weeks ago on draft at Tyler's in Carrboro and had a very small sip myself at Bottle Revolution shortly thereafter.
    From tonight:

    Barrel and Bean (draft)-Allagash Brewing

    I thought this sounded familiar and one of the employees at Bottle Revolution confirmed my suspicions.

    This was a 2 ounce sample between half pints. Appeared an orange-amber color with a small, foamy head. Aromas and tastes pretty similar to the 2016 tasting with IBUs low and ABV on the electronic beer board at 10%. If didn't have a bunch of beer from last month, I'd have bought a 4 pack of this. Highly recommended.

    KBS apparently released on/about 3/15 for national distribution on a much larger/wider scale than prior years. More later...
