|Kane Through The Empty Space
This 8% oatmeal stout from a good brewery in NJ. The nose
brings roasted malts, well done toast, and dried coffee. Taste
features creamy oats, with a light coffee bitterness. Hints of dark
plums and cherries lurk in the background. Roasted barley and
minerals appear near the finish. A nice oatmeal stout.
Overall Rating: Good+
|Troegs Double Blizzard
This is an 8.35% ABV Imperial IPA . It opens with aromas of peach,
pineapple, pine, and a touch of vanilla. Taste is led by grapefruit,
tangerine and pineapple on the front with underlying notes of pine
throughout. Not a "juicy" IPA but the fruit is noticeable. Light
alcohol notes near the finish. A most decent DIPA.
Overall Rating: Good-
