Beer Review #63: Sixpoint 7th Anniversary Ale

Style: Belgian strong dark ale

Menu description: Strong hops, deep red color, mild fruits.

ABV: 7%

Tasting notes: The description isn’t kidding about strong hops! There’s a very hoppy taste, but absent the bitterness that usually accompanies it. Pretty good, but with a slightly odd aftertaste.

Rating: 3.25/5

Beer Review #35: Sixpoint Barrel Aged 3beans (2017)

Style: Baltic porter.

ABV: 10.1%

My thoughts: Moderate, almost cocoa scent. Nice flavor, notes of mild coffee with an undertone of chocolate and bourbon. More carbonation than I expected, but it plays nicely with the flavor. Full body, but not too rich. Somewhat creamy. Slight coffee bitter aftertaste that dissipates quickly.

Rating: 4.5/5

Beer Review #5: Brooklyn Blast

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

It’s a pretty decent IPA, but that’s about it. It’s not really remarkable in any way, and I gotta say that I don’t know what they’re talking about with all this fruit nonsense. It’s better than a typical house beer and most other generic types or major brands. The price, like the taste, is inoffensive so that’s a plus. Not really much more to say here.

7% ABV
