Re: TLDR Beer Club

Ok so a distributor near me has a few cases of Russian River beers, they are $$$$. What they had was Supplication and Damnation, I forget the Damnation price but Supplication was 134.99 for 12 375ml bottles. (Damnation is probably cheaper but I dont recall the price).

I would have to go back and make they are there but Im thinking of getting a case but would like to go 3 ways on it. If anyone is interested (you gotta pay your shipping but I can ship from work Fed Ex for cheap not on the companies dime yay nonprofit!) let me know.

Supplication

Re: TLDR Beer Club

If you're in Florida, checkout Cigar City's Good Gourd. It's as good if not better than Punkin (but not in the same league as Pumking).

You're a very lucky man. I'm in FL so we don't even get Founders but I may have a lead on a GA store that could get them in on Monday. Thinking about a two hour drive across the border, same thing I did for KBS in March.

Terrible weather, terrible economy but awesome breweries.. Fair trade IMO. Ability to get a second bottle will dictate when I drink it. I kind of want to age one for a year and see the difference.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Left Hand Milk Stout might be the closest thing to an oreo dipping beer ever.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Nice! The breakfast stouts were seriously some of the best beers I've ever had. I also meant to review one but split some with friends and lost track. I think I want to attempt a clone version of it but at the same time I don't think something I'd clone could ever do that beer justice.

I believe I had this beer on cask about two months ago. It was phenomenal. There's a "local" bar (about 45min away) that does a new cask every Friday that I really need to check out more.

I'm going to do some stewarding this weekend for a homebrew competition this weekend that I'm pretty stoked about. Also have an exam in my beer class tomorrow that involves answering 50 questions and then sampling/critiquing 3 beers. Life is so tough sometimes.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Trifecta post!

Most recent beer review of the Magic Hat hI.P.A.

A - Pours a yellow and gold/orange hued body. Head is white and dissipates quickly. For the most part pretty clear with a very slight haziness to it.

S - American hops throughout the aroma. Smells piney and citrusy. Deliciously fragrant and smells like an IPA should.

T - Great bitterness and hop flavor throughout. Definitely a hop forward beer with bitterness greating my mouth instantaneously. As it explores the rest of my mouth the hop aroma and a slight malt backbone come out to play. Very citrusy.

M - Full bodied and slight alcohol burn. The bitterness tingles a bit.

D - A wonderful IPA and probably the best Magic Hat beer I've ever had. It's delicious from the beginning to the end and although the alcohol is a bit high, it would make a great session beer.

I agree. Went in to sample a few different beers last night and wound up just drinking three of those. I should have my hands on the entire Short's lineup here pretty soon, so a full review will be in order.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Anybody have recommendations for temperature controllers for a fermentation chamber? I need a new one so I can brew again.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Johnson analog temp controllers are supposed to be pretty good from the reviews I've seen. They are a bit more pricey at ~50$ but get good reviews.

Interesting update on this beer, as it condition the smoke came through pretty nicely. Pretty much the smoke level I was hoping for, a little on the nose and then some up front then fading to a roasty coffee on the back end. I do think the recipe is missing something interesting, not sure what but it just feels like it needs another layer of complexity.

Anyway, this beer was brewed for a competition and that was on Sunday. Everyone had to base their beer off of some Cherrywood smoked Rye that the bar who was hosting provided. I didnt place, but I made it out of the first round of cuts (they cut 20 of the 48 entrants after the first tasting so I made it past there) then they narrowed it down to 8 and had bracket style competition to determine the winner. Well here is my score sheet, I had to ask for it at the end, Im pleased with the score.



grrr id love more feedback. I am going to enter the beer in 2 more competitions, both AHA BJCP events so I should get some better feedback.

Edit: The note says "You were the first and last beer i tasted-and the best use of the ingredient."

Re: TLDR Beer Club

I got to judge some beers at the Saaz competition this weekend. I did a fruit round and an Irish/Scottish round. In the fruit round there was a cherry wood smoked malt black cherry porter that was phenomenal. Had a ton of cherry and smoke flavor in it and just a tad of roastiness. The only significant flaw was it was pretty under carbonated. Really great beer overall and I'd like to get some cherry wood smoked malt now :P.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

My store just told me they were allotted 2 bottles of Canadian Breakfast Stout, which they were raffling off. Sucks, because I think they got a case of the Kentucky Breakfast Stout and I was able to get two of them...

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Scored a bottle of CBS. It took so much effort I'm not sure I have a cause for celebration big enough to open it coming in the near future.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

^^^^^^^i can categorically say i dont give two dick pickles about cbs. the amount of people ive heard talk about in bars/ liquor stores in the last 2 weeks is more than enough to justify the effort in getting it.

I couldn't find dogfish or southern tier's pumpkins so I tried a couple of shlafly's and they were ok, but nothing I would want to drink regularly. Really wish I could try dogfish's punkin but they stopped distribution to Indiana earlier this year.

I picked up a few Abita pecan ales, has anyone had that? Sounds like it could be good but I'd never heard I'd it
