Harry’s Hofbrau 4-30-13: Port Brewing Anniversary Ale & more
Port Brewing Anniversery Ale – Draft – ABV 10% – Cloudy yellowish orange color with a thick white head. This beer smells of hops and I am getting some citrus in the scent. A very hoppy taste but very smooth same time gives this strong IPA a good crisp flavor. While this is a good IPA there is nothing give this any leg over other strong IPAs like Stone IPA or Lagunitas IPA. I give this a 3.5 out of 5
Mrs Stoutfire – The Bruery – Bottle – ABV 9.5%
Smells of burnt Malts. I get coffee and a Strong flavor of stout with burnt malts. While it punches you in the mouth with the first sip it is amazingly smooth on the back end. This is a beer not found in stores, only reserve society members can buy this. It is a purely golden stout. I give this 5 out of 5
Ichigo highway – The Bruery – Bottle – ABV 5.5%
Amazing strawberry sour! A red cloudy. A great sour fruit beer I could get addicted to this! I give it a 4.5 out of 5
From the brewer: Ichigo Highway is a collaborative beer that we created with Hangar 24 Brewing from Redlands, CA. The base style is a sessionable sour red ale that we aged in oak barrels along with a whopping amount of strawberries, most of which were picked from the fields besides Hangar 24’s brewery. Aged for approximately 8 months, this beer has developed a pleasant funk and a delightful acidity that is balanced by the intensely sweet aroma and flavor of the strawberries as well as a unique dryness achieved by using a sake yeast along with our house strain along with souring bacteria.
My Blueberry Nightmare – Birrificio Del Ducato – Bottle – ABV 9.5%
Blueberry flavor it hits you like it’s going to be a salad and drops off and it’s not a sour and then turns into text and blueberries. Bitter aftertaste
Black Hole – Mikkeller – Draft – ABV 13.1%
Pitch black in color with a light tan head. A great double stout with a heavy creamy flavor. I really like this stout an want to find it again its so good. I give this 4.5 out of 5.
Lil’ B – Evil Twin Brewing – Draft – ABV 11.5%
Pitch black in color with a dark brown head. I saw double porter and got excite but it lacked the punch and strength of a porter so I was very disappointed I give this beer a 2 out of 5
