This is one of my early reviews. I knew less and wrote less and generally they are not as detailed as my later reviews. As I go through my tremendous backlog of beer notes, I’ll indicate which reviews are based off of my older notes. They have less info than I’d like, but they still helped me keep my beers straight, so I figured they’d be worth posting.

Menu: Orange peel & coriander, hints of sweet & tart fruits.

ABV: 10%

I finished my night off with this fine beer. I first had it last November and it really caught my attention. Earlier in the year I had tried Sam Adams Double Chocolate Cherry, a beer that I can only describe as transcendent. Since then, I was looking for a beer with a similar cherry or chocolate flavor. This beer really nailed the cherry flavor.

Update: Yeah, so this experiment in real time writing while drinking didn’t really go anywhere. I think I did this for maybe 2-3 weeks before calling it quits. Keeping notes in Evernote and fighting the WordPress app to update the website without posting enormous versions of the pictures and trying to actually hang out with my friends was just a bit too much to juggle at once.

Yes, yes, I know it’s been forever. Why has it been forever? I’m fucking lazy, that’s why! On with the show!

So I’ve decided that on Mondays I’m gonna update this shit real time as I drink these beers. Unfortunately, this Monday all the beers are repeats from last week, so my thoughts are all from last week, but you haven’t seen them so you wouldn’t know anyway!

So I got diseased but good! I’ve been sick since a couple of days after my last post and have subsequently been cursing every single person I’ve come into close proximity to due to the fact that they are all filthy, disease addled hobos and have spread their pestilence to me. Now that I’m finally better and can think straight, its time to once again get back to the beer reviews. Today’s selection is Gulden Drak, a beer that might be made from distilled rainbows.

Before we begin today, I wanted to note that I’ve updated my post about Blue Point Sour Cherry Imperial Stout. I got to have it again recently (it’s a seasonal beer) and have some more stuff to say about it!

Today’s beer is the illustrious Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. Last time we discussed how much I love IPAs, so I’m pretty sure you can guess how I’m going to feel about this beer.

The holidays are over and its time for me to stop being a lazy asshole. After almost a month of sloth, stuffing my face with holiday treats, and wild parties (maybe not that last part) I’m getting down to business with a delightfully patriotic beer, 21st Amendment Brew Free or Die!

A quick one today because today’s beer is nothing special. From the menu: “Grapefruit & other sweet fruits, caramel malts.”
