    Oxblood Initiate - Newgrass Brewing - 6.2 % ABV - Foeder aged American wild brown sour ale refermented on Montmorency Cherries - One off

    Pour was good - dark brown black, like cola with lingering half-inch tan head.
    Nose smells like faint red wine vinegar.
    This tastes like maybe a pretty watered down version of the amazing Crooked Stave Nightmare on Brett sour I reviewed above. It's not really fair to compare this to that of course. But after drinking it, I am going to compare because this was overpriced and that one was a great value for its quality. This was $14.99 for 16.9 ounce bottle. The sour here is mild and nice. The cherry is more subtle here, cherry notes come through at times. The finish is dry, but needs some work.
    Overall, this is a good beer, fuse category 2 if you could get it cheap. It's enjoyable enough.

    Cheers and hope everybody has a great week! I'm getting ready for some Oktoberfests and BBA Sexual chocoalte, oh my.

    Firestone Walker 2018 Stickee Monkee

    A purchase from Goldsboro Brew Works on Saturday night. If you like Boulevard's BBA Quad (and you know who you are ), you'll absolutely love this beer. From the brewer:

    Brewed with Belgian candi sugar and aged in a selection of fine bourbon barrels, Stickee Monkee trailblazes its own category as a “Central Coast Quad.” The name Stickee Monkee is a nod to the Central Coast’s native Sticky Monkey flower, as well as a shoutI'm a real wanker for saying this.‐out to the Belgian monks who pioneered the Quad style.

    It has been said that the only constant is change and the same is true for barrel-aged beers. Cut from a similar recipe, this barrel-aged Quad evolves and shows a different face each year; a result of time spent aging in the barrel. Turbinado brown sugar from Mexico adds wonderful molasses flavors that are reminiscent of Belgian candi sugar. It has a full body and lush texture with barrel expression all over; toasted oak, coconut, leather and rich cigar tobacco.
    This is definitely a Cat 3 beer. Pours a deep, deep brown (75 SRM) with little to no head on it. Aromas of dark fruit, coconut, and a hint of leather. Must be sipped, because it's pretty boozy at 11.4% ABV. IBU's check in at 36, so not overly sweet or overly bitter. Just a terrifically balanced, rich and flavorful Quad. I wish I had purchased two, so that I could age one for about a year and see how it changes.
    "Amazing what a minute can do."

    Sounds amazing. I'll be on the lookout here before we head to Ohio on Thursday and, if unsuccessful here, I'll be shopping in Columbus, too.

    Besides Zaftigs and Warped Wing, pick up any JackieOís BBA selection you see. You wonít be disappointed unless you donít care for high abv, tasty, interesting stouts

    I have 24 different 12oz. bottles from JackieOís from my visit. Spent a fortune at $10-$12 a piece.

    Also if you like bourbon visit Whiskey War, good bourbon and whiskey (they have a smoked Manhattan) good food and a nice local draft list.

    Yes. I donít have a beer called Octoberfest, if I open my Hardywoods Rum Barrel Pumpkin does that qualify?

    It does not qualify.

    You will have to seek out (a) local Octoberfest(s) from Veil, Hardywood, Vasen or brewer(s) of your choice to participate in the gaiety/frivolity that is Ymm, Beer Virtual Pub Day .

    Beside, your above-named beer *might* just fit for October's theme, especially if you accept my nomination to host AND declare the beer style of your choice on the Saturday you select next month.

    Youíre in the Jungle Baby. Yes this is a beer name. And it has cool bottle artwork, and a great beer to match. A collaboration between JackieOís and Evil Twin Brewing. Imperial stout brewed with honey, aged in bourbon barrels, conditioned on Mexico cacao nibs, vanilla beans, Pasilla chilles, and orange peel.
    14.4% Abv.

    You get chocolate and bourbon up front, and a slight pepper/heat and orange on the finish. Truly an awesome beer, not just for desert. I had a couple of JackieOís beers that my sister brought my from Ohio, but I made her drive to Athens to see their catalog. I donít know how a brewery from little Athens, Ohio does so many interesting BBA stouts, but they are great. They arenít cheap at $10-$12 a -2.7 oz. bottle, but they are really great.

The beer is fermented for over a year in a stainless steel tank on a blend of Maine-grown Balaton and Montmorrency cherries. Copper in color, Nancy's flavor is a medley of citrus, cherry, and pie spice, with a hint of graham cracker. The finish is dry and refreshingly tart."

    If you like fruited sour beers, this is a Strong fuse Category 1 - get some, highly recommended, crazy good sour. They have lots at Stella.

    It's delicious, and a perfectly balanced cherry sour. It's funky and sour (not puckering), but the powerful cherry flavors are most prominent. The light cinnamon enhances the cherry with some bready pie crust in there too from the malt. It's complex, starting out tart, unripe cherry followed by sweet ripe cherry flavor but not too sweet. That is followed by a dry but still sweet flavor. It's very drinkable, crisp, and refreshing, with bubbly carbonation.

    I will revisit. I've found the perfect beer to pair with that dark chocolate cherry ganache pie from Grand Traverse. If only I could win another one!
    Grabbed a bottle of this at Stella following this review, and had it last night. Can't argue at all with this review. I liked it quite a lot. And it wasn't even Dancing . . . . .
