Tumescence – The Bruery – Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode #4

Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode #4

Tumescence – The Bruery / Bottle Logic Colab- Saison brewed with Mango, Raspberry and Herbs – ABV 8% 4 out of 5

I first tasted this beer at the Bruery’s tasting room. I was looking to get a beer my wife would like. While this has fruits and my wife love fruit beers this saison is too tart for her. I got a bottle in my spring Preservation Society allocation.

Orange amber color with a white head but yet I cannot see through the beer it is so cloudy. Scent of fruits, herbs and hops. I can smell the mango for sure. The mango is strong on the first taste. I get the herbs and hops are on the back end. Bitter fruit and hop flavor makes this a bitter and tart beer. 20140529-201054-72654212.jpg


Mephistopheles’ Stout (2013) – Avery Brewing – Bi Weekly Beer Review Episode 3 (a little late)

Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 3
Mephistopheles’ Stout (2013) – Avery Brewing (Boulder, CO) ABV 15.4% 5 out of 5

The stout pours thick and slow. Black in color with a tan head. Scent of malts but not burnt like other strong stouts, a sweet sugar scent. Strong flavor with a burning on the back end. Chocolate and light roasted malts are what hit me first then it changes to bitter hops.
When it warmed the burn on the backend goes away and the Carmel comes out. This is such a great stout
