Haha. I don't usually talk about the way it "tastes" unless a taste is overwhelming (tobacco, cherry, oak). I usually am more interested in talking about the entry/body/finish as well as the mouth feel. I like wines with a lot of body that linger on the palate. That's why I don't like most pinot noirs. I find that they have a good entry, but that they're too light on the palate and don't stick around. That's why I term the wines I like "whiskey reds." I'm a whiskey drinker. I like wines that provide a similar experience to sipping good whiskey, so I tend toward heavier wines.

I'm not sure how I'd classify Beringer's Cabernet, as being heavier or lighter, just because I haven't had much outside of it. But I'll keep that thought in mind.

I have also watched John Cleese's Wine for the Confused on netflix in order to get more into enjoying wine; that was interesting and helpful, but it's strictly for beginners.

I think I might have had one of those at a friends recently. The one I had was insane as it tasted like a blueberry spritzer or something. There was zero beer flavor. It was like drinking an artificial blueberry soda. It's even worse that it's an AB product, because that means they like had focus groups taste and approve of that shit. If it were some demented brewmeister in New Jersey with shitty taste buds from sucking toxic sludge, that would be one thing... but it's like the biggest freaking producers of beer in the world, and they screwed the pooch that bad?

I'm about to open a bottle of Dark Hops, a hoppy American-style stout from a little Danish outfit called Beer Here.

EDIT: a review of Beer Here Dark Hops (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/19476/49835/?ba=Reaper16)

22oz. bomber served into a tulip glass

Dark Hops pours a near pitch-black. I've seen imperial stouts that are less black than this beer. Only when you hold it directly to a lamp can you say "Oh, this IS brown after all." A somewhat aggressive pour yields three fingers of head. The foam is deeply tan, like a mocha drink really. The beer naturally leaves thick lines of lace as it recedes, and this is before I've even taken a first sip. A very impressive looking stout.

I don't know how old this bottle is but the hops certainly smell like they've seen better days. Distantly dank, the hops come across as having soured. Past the hops there is a good deal of cocoa powder, maybe Coco Puffs cereal. It isn't a lush chocolate aroma, and there isn't much roast. It is kind of chalky, actually.

What I said aloud right after the first taste: "I wouldn't have bought this if I'd known I had 5 other bottles of this in my fridge under the label 'Boulevard Bully! Porter.'" This beer tastes remarkably like Boulevard's superb, criminally underrated, roasty & hoppy American Porter. You get some roast and tobacco and ash up front with a subdued citrus fruit component all backed up with a drying, cocoa powder taste. The hops don't take away from the stout flavors. They aren't completely harmonious, but the interplay is fun and not at all striking any discord.

Mouthfeel is somewhere in between medium and heavy in body. The carbonation isn't too active but you can still make out the tiny, soda pop-like bubbles. It is pretty up there in alcohol for a non-Imperial Stout. As such the drinkability suffers just a bit; this doesn't offer the same intensity of flavor per ABV percentage ratio as many beers of a similar ABV% do. It is still above average in the category, I'd say.

This is a very good stout by my estimation. I personally love hoppy dark beers, so take that into account. Your mileage may vary. It is a less-intense version of Stone's Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale, basically. If you see this beer on the shelf then it is definitely worth a purchase. It is among my favorite American Stouts now.

Appearance = 4.5 out of 5, Aroma = 3, Taste = 4.5, Mouthfeel = 4, Drinkability = 3.5. Score = 4.05 (A-).

This evening: Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noire - a saison that happens to be pitch black. What's weird about it is that there wasn't really any roasted malt character. Its pretty much just their Bam Biere saison, only dark colored. Which is fine, because both beers are solid.

Now: New Glarus [Unplugged] Imperial Saison - an experiment that fails. It is abound with tart & sweet apricot and Juicy Fruit gum flavors but it doesn't taste like a Saison. It tastes mostly like a 9% ABV wine cooler, actually.

Drank a Saison de Lente from The Bruery tonight. Damn good. Its pretty much a ripoff/clone of Boulevard's Saison-Brett (same generous hopping, same use of Brettonamyces yeast, same appearance even. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference in a test of appearance). My review:
750mL bottle served into a tulip glass

This beer is gorgeous. It looks like a carbon copy of Boulevard's Saison-Brett. It pours a straw yellow body, very style appropriate, that has just enough clarity through the haze to make out streams of carbonation jetting upwards. The white head is fantastic in scope. It pours out like four fingers if you aren't careful. The foam produces a towering hill in the middle of the glass with the consistency of meringue. The edges of the foam is full of large bubbles that leave behind sinews of lacing all around the glass. You'd be hard-pressed to find a saison that looks better than what I am looking at right now.

Lemon and crackers and candy sugar hit me first; very Belgian nose upon first whiff. Dried-out hay and a considerable hop presence make for a large amount of earthiness. The Brettonamyces is certainly noticeable. Dog hair and musty old barn funk and, like, radishes (yes, radishes. I am quite sure now. Maybe some mustard greens) come out of the yeast. There is a lot going on and the highlights will fluctuate with temperature. Great stuff.

This is a good tasting saison but the complexity of the nose doesn't quite pan out on the palate. It comes close though. The taste is strongly vegetal, actually. It tastes like mustard greens and plant roots and earthy soil; some of this is from the bittering hops and some of it is from the yeast. There is just a hint of lemon rind on the back sides of the tongue, masked by all of the earthiness. The aftertaste presents hop bitterness and hay; it is drying like good saison should be.

The carbonation is, surprisingly, not all that active. The beer can get watery at the tail end of a glass. It is on the lighter end of the medium-bodied spectrum. I'm scoring drinkability a 4.0 because all the earthiness (while quite tasty) can get to be a chore after a while. You might share this 750mL bottle for best results. If not, you will still enjoy drinking the entire thing.

This is my first beer from The Bruery. I can tell that this brewery knows what they are doing. This is a lovely American Saison, one of the best that I've had. It is clearly an attempt at a Saison-Brett clone - everything about it from the generous hopping to the appearance to the amount of Brettonamyces present is eerily similar to a bottle of Saison-Brett, only not quite as good - and it succeeds. Buy this beer if it is available to you. It is plenty funky right now and it will only develop with some cellar time.

FWIW - Lindemans "lambics" aren't really lambic beer. They have artificial sweeteners in them. They are tasty, though, in a fruit soda pop kind of way. Real lambic beer is so much more complex and way more sour.

I've only had a 2007 Mephistopheles Stout. Lots of sweetness and a big alcohol bite. Great mouthfeel. I would expect a large amount of alcohol in the taste and smell of that series and perhaps a too-much amount of malt sweetness.

Reaper:

Please provide a layman's review and definition of Boulevard's Single Wide IPA. Thanks.
Layman's? Here's some tasting notes I took from an on-tap pint of Single-Wide from December 2008:

Pours a golden yellow, sort of the same color as Bell's Two Hearted Ale, with a nice two-finger head. The head on this pour was so creamy looking that I thought it came from a nitro-tap. Decent lacing notches lines in the glass as you drink.

Hops hit you front and center in the aroma dept. Lots of pine resin and flowers in the nose. A hint of caramel type malt, but mostly just piney hops. Its not balanced, but its darn enticing.

On the tongue, Single Wide is not nearly as one-sided as the aromas would suggest (kind of like Double Wide in this respect). Hop bitterness hits first along with grapefruit and maybe green tea, then the malt sweetness washes over your mouth. In the malt's wake, however, is a bitter aftertaste, slightly drying, leaving you desirous of another drink. Not complex, but balanced and delicious.

This is an easy to drink IPA. I feels perhaps a tad thin in the mouth, but nothing that would be unpleasant or distracting in any way. The alcohol plays no role positively or negatively, making this a great session choice. Its balanced, refreshing and tasty, which is more than I can say about a lot of beers.

Boulevard's stupendous, world-class [Smokestack Series] Dark Truth Stout came out on Monday. I bought a case. I am opening up a bottle now (note: this is almost the same beer as Jan. 2009's limited-release Imperial Stout, only Dark Truth contains no spelt in its multigrain grainbill and it wasn't aged in bourbon barrels).

This is a very very good beer.

I also bought the Stone 14th anniversary IPA. I will probably hold off on that until later this week, though. (Can't wait)

I had a fly'n Kangaroo tonight. its a pretty good drink.

It consists of:

-1 oz cocunut rum
-1 oz vodka
-splash of galliando (italian vanilla liquor)
-splash of light cream
-add splashes of both OJ and pineapple juice and you're good to go.

*Oh I forgot to mention, make sure you keep your cocktail glass chilled. Filled it with ice and let that ice sit for 5 minutes, mix your drink then pour. Enjoy its a very good cocktail. I strongly reccommend it. If you're a fruity guy this drink may work for you.

Chocolate Vodka, Creme de Cacao, and a little milk, you have a mix between a chocolate martini and white russian. :BLVD:

Oh, and if you have chocolate syrup, drizzle is around the glass and dip the rim in sugar!

I got halfway home from the store before I realized I gave away my martini glasses and I didn't get the syrup. I may go get some cheap glasses at Wally World while the liquor is chilling.

I'm thinking the choc vodka, cacao, and a little Bailey's. Gotta have a martini glass though!

Then there's maybe just the vanilla vodka with some Dr Pepper.

Think I'm making a Wally World run. Almost out of cat food and conditioner anyway. :)

1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box vanilla instant pudding
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs
1/4 cup vodka
1/4 cup Galliano liqueur
3/4 cup orange juice




When finished, you will end up topping the cake with either powdered sugar or a glaze made thusly:
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon vodka
1 tablespoon Galliano




Mix cake mix, pudding, oil, eggs, vodka, Galliano, orange juice and beat for 4 minutes. Pour batter into greased and floured tube pan. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until tested done. Either dust with powdered sugar or frost with the glaze.
