    Yard work is done, so lets get these doors officially open.

    Many thanks to the early arriving golf fans who made sure everything was in working order!

    First letter on tap (or should I say "in can"): E

    Wicket Awesome
    Eureka Heights - Houston, TX
    Style: ESB
    ABV: 4.7%
    IBU: 30
    Grains: Marris Otter, Crystal, Special Roast
    Hops: East Kent Golding, Challenger
    Awards: Gold Medal GABF - ESB


    "This English Style Pale Ale is mighty special. Brewed with traditional U.K. ingredients that give this beer an aroma of biscuits with hints of dark fruits. Drink some of this and you might start reciting Shakespeare or even Chaucer."

    It's been awhile since I've had an ESB, but found this one very enjoyable.

    I'm on call today so won't be posting "live" beer tastings but will recycle some from during the week and see y'all about 430 EST on Zoom with a lemonade in my hand.

    Ain't many Z breweries but Zaftig is readily available in Columbus, OH (not sure about the remainder of the state) and I was fortunate to have one cellared from 2019 just for this event. Lemme search the last few days and then I'll post it.

    I forgot I tasted this on 6/13/20. Who knew LegoBatman would host a Scrabble VP and I could re-post this :

    Credit-son; many thanks for sharing would be an understatement for this brew
    Style-BBA imperial stout
    Format-12 ounce bottle ($15 ), shared 3 ways
    Bottling date-2019 (probably 1/2019 or 2/2019)
    Stemware-snifters
    Appearance-oh, so close to midnight black; thin, mocha head
    Nose-boozy, dark chocolate fudge
    Mouthfeel-20W50; darn near chewy
    Tastes-dark chocolate bourbon balls, molasses, dark fruit, hint of coffee, char
    Adjuncts-none listed
    IBU-SWAG of 50
    ABV-16%; hence the 3 way share; bourbon not hidden at all but not overpowering
    Overall impression-as good, if not better that Bourbon County or just about any other BBA RIS I've ever tasted; celebrating children's milestones=even better
    Ymm, Beer rating-top, front and center of cat 3, with a ribbon, bow and medal; an amazing concoction

    Credit-son of devildeac but not sure when; thanks!!
    Format-12 ounce bottle

    Freshness stuff-bottled 2019 (no date/month); batch 263
    Stemware-snifter
    Appearance-dark brown; no head
    Nose-extra boozy Peter Pan creamy
    Mouthfeel- smooth but a bit thin
    Tastes-am I drinking a peanut butter, chocolate and bourbon sammich on slightly burned toast?
    Adjuncts-"...hot nuts, you buy 'em from the peanut man..."
    IBU-perhaps 50
    ABV-9%; yep, my peanut butter sammich last PM was booze-soaked
    Overall impression-somewhat unusual combination that I quite enjoyed
    Ymm, Beer rating-with a backdoor cut, it snuck into cat 3

    Van Dayum!
    Blue Owl Brewing - Austin, TX
    Sour Red Ale
    ABV: 5.7%
    IBU: 32

    "Balanced red ale. Malty, with biscuit, caramel, and dark fruit character and a moderate sour finish. Our dry-hopped red ale showcases how rich malt balances piney American hop flavors along with our unique souring process."

    I'm still kind of new to sours. Wasn't sure on the first sip, but ended up liking it by the end.

    I'm not sure who's keeping track but I started last night with D

    Since Dogtown Brewery closes at 5!, I ended up with Dogfish Head's - Super Eight -

    Brewed with "prickly pear, mango, boysenberry, blackberry, raspberry, elderberry, kiwi juices, toasted quinoa and an ample addition of red Hawaiian sea salt!"

    Definitely a fruit-punch kinda vibe to it. A little bit like a bite of salted watermelon. I could see that.

    At 5.3, pretty light to get started with.

    In an extremely crowded Gose field, I would put it somewhere Cat 2 range. I think I still prefer their Seaquench but this was nice.

    Great name! Sours do require some acquired tastes.

    Seaquench is indeed an outstanding offering.

    Veil - Never Never Forever Forever...my beer with breafast, a Nate's smoked salmon bagel sandwich.

    5.1% ABV

    "Never Never Forever Forever is our Gose with double passion fruit! Impressions of passion fruit, mango, tropical fruit muskiness, tropical sweet tarts, citrus, and guava."

    Hazy golden yellow topped with a small white head. Deep passion fruit aroma along with a grainy wheat note - fresh and fruity. Sweet juicy, fresh, seedy passion fruit, yogurt tartness, and a light salinity. Dry, medium-light feel with a dry sour pucker. Good stuff...if you like passion fruit. Typical well made high end Veil gose.

    From November 8 as WMB is good enough for me:

    Tropical Shirts-Wise Man Brewing

    Because it was about 75 degrees today and this "attire" was comfortable.

    In the 336? Close enough for me!

    Credit-three were traded and the 4th was mine!
    Style-fruited Berliner Weisse
    Format-half quart can
    Stemware-boring pint glass
    Appearance-reddish purple; rapidly disappearing, fizzy head
    Nose-berries
    Mouthfeel-a bit sweet and a bit tart; hmm, time for more candy talk?
    Tastes-raspberry, blackberry and lemon; a mixed berry SweeTart?
    Adjuncts-blackberry and raspberry
    IBU-7
    ABV-4.2%
    Overall impression-high quality product here; paired nicely with a strange dinner combo of stuffed salmon, leftover stir fry veggies and roasted potatoes
    Ymm, Beer rating-easy cat 3, lower tier; Mrs. dd even took a couple sips and didn't make bitter/sour beer face

    I think that's in the queue for next week. Sounds refreshing.

    From November 10 because it's a working weekend for me:

    Mulling Spices Port Barrel Magellan-Wolf's Ridge Brewing

    Local for the purchasing agent.

    Credit-our son traded this very limited, brewery only release pre-COVID; thanks!!
    Style-very fancy imperial stout
    Format-8 ounce bottle (no, really, it's a half pint glass container); wasn't cheap at about $9/bottle
    Packaged on-01/31/20
    Stemware-snifter
    Appearance-dark, dark brown with hints of burgundy; small, tan head
    Mouthfeel-velvety
    Tastes-sooooo complex with port to start then, dark caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, dark chocolate (not added) and vanilla
    Adjuncts-maple syrup, Vietnamese cinnamon, Madagascar vanilla, (hint of), allspice, orange peel (didn't taste this) and nutmeg
    IBU-probably 50
    ABV-13% (oughtta be illegal )
    Overall impression-an amazingly complex beer without an overpowering element; almost a different taste every sip over the 60 minute consumption time
    Ymm, Beer rating-upper tier cat 3; my second bottle *might* make it to a 2021 tailgate but might be shared with family before then

    Coconut Jack - Hardywood Park Craft Brewery

    Stout - Imperial / Double Milk
    12.7% ABV

    "Hoist the mast and set sail with Coconut Jack. We commandeered a Caribbean rum barrel with 7 month aged imperial milk stout to be blended with a barrel of Trickery and mellowed on toasted coconut. It's a pirates island dream, savvy!" Trickery is their imperial milk stout aged in apple brandy barrels for 8 months.

    This was not a family tree offering, but a one-off - only at the brewery purchase. 750mL brown bottle $30 so not cheap.

    It pours pitch black. Strong, musty flavor of raw coconut, brown sugar, vanilla and damp wood on the nose. You get a dark molasses sweetness at first followed by coconut and a slight peppery spiciness. It finishes with a very dark chocolate flavor. It's thick, rich and oily but goes down easily at 12.7%.. An awesome cat 3 beer with a lot of complexity and an interesting flavor profile.
