The kettle in the brewhouse has been burning oft this year and with it it being an odd year to say the least experimentalism seems appropriate. I had just recently learned of a couple new hops to hit the scene and based on their descriptors could not restrain myself from ordering immediately. It was no question what needed to be brewed with them. So combing my mad scientist eyebrows back, i grabbed my gear and set to making a hazy IPA. Whilst not as hazy as I'd hoped this ipa definitely isnt clear. It pours witha small short lived head, but as it does, the nose is being loudly promised amazing things. There is some moderate lacing and it retains patchy foam throughout. The aroma of this beer is just shy of miraculous. Massive pineapple, coconut, mango, peach, melon, sweet orange, cream, and possibly strawberry. As it passes over the tongue a creamy sweetness lays the foundation for a juicy tropical extravaganza. Most of the notes in the aroma are the flavours that the tongue get to bathe luxuriously in. Not super stong but ample. There is a slight citrus hint that balances out the sweetness perfectly. There is little to no bitterness except from the carbonation. Very soft mouthfeel and easy drinking. I belive that if I boost the dry hop on this beer, it may be the finest (hoppy) beer I've tasted. I am proud to say I made that.

This is my first kegged beer. I also had some trouble with the yeast making huge sulpher but it cleared up. Pours a decently attractive dark copper colour with standard white head that falls to a thin lingering layer. It has a rather basic aroma with a nice touch of caramel and a bitter herbal earthy hops note. The taste is very similar. Lightly caramel malt balanced very nicely with medium bitterness. It has herbal, gently tangy, peppery, earthy hops notes that all work well together. Very drinkable. Also kegging worked excellent. Dangerous with this beer. Super crushable. Not a stand out beer, just a good beer.

I brewed this beer ss a test batch to find out what the French strain of hops called Tardif de bourgogne would do. I used it as test for Imperial's Loki yeast. Fermented very cool to keep the profile clean. I may try this again much warmer to see what the esters are like. It pours a pale straw, lightly gold colour with a nice fluffy whit head composed of small to medium size bubbles. It laces the glass decently, and maintains at least a thin layer of foam throughout. It suffers from a bit of chill haze that clears dramatically as it warms slightly. The nose is treated to a humble aroma that is a little hard to decipher but contains gentle floral notes suggestive of lavender and green tea. It somehow creates an impression of sweetness whith highlights of honeydew or other melon. I pick up a noble hop type spicy hint as well. All these are very well blended and quite gentle. These hop notes work nicely in partnership with the malt aroma that, to me, are reminiscent of European lager. A nice grain and biscuit base to balance the hops. Im not sure sure if the yeast left anything to the nose or tastebuds but I cant pick anything out. The body is a little thinner than I was hoping for but not too dissapointing. The taste is very much like the aromas. The sweetness is nicely present and and works very well with the floral and spicy notes. It is a little too biscuity but not a offensive. The layers of flavour display as hops, biscuit, then after it all starts to fade one notices a gentle building of bitterness that teases the tongue as an aftertaste. Not a strong bitterness at all. Quite a nice beer that with a few minor adjustments will be excellent.

The "Brewery" fires have been cold for so long it was nice to finally get some wort for the yeasties to chew on. Pouring a copper gold with a small white head, it seems to suffer a bit of chill haze but clears as it warms. The nose isn't challenged to find melon, lychee, lemon grass, green grape, white wine, and a mild grainy malt. It does present some boozyness as well in the taste as the nose. This boozyness in the taste helps accentuate a mild white wine flavour. All the aromatic notes seem.to appear on the tongue as well which also lends a bit to the wine like sensation. It's not very bitter, but is well balanced. The final notes of the sip are the grainy malt to smoothe out the experience. I'm happy with how it turned out.

After a summer long brewing hiatus, wherein I wasnt smart enough to use the heat to create a saison, I have returned to the kettle, and made good on a promised beer for a friend of mine. My version of an Irish red ale. I lost more water than I had anticipated in the boil and as a consequence it is a bit sweeter, has higher alcohol content, and is darker than I had planned. It is almost a brown ale but still has deep rich red hues. When poured it forms a nice ivory head about two fingers high. As it settles the foam becomes more like what you see from a nitro beer, with tiny bubbles making a soft fluffy yet thin layer. The aromas are quite subdued and subtle despite an underlying heaviness. I'm picking up hints of caramel, bread, a light nondescript fruitiness, and a bit of sharpness from the hops. It reminds me distantly of fruitcake. In the mouth, it is much the same but richer and with an alcohol warmth. Caramel and bready, light biscuit, and that indistinct fruitiness are the main components. It is fairly sweet but the hops and alcohol really tame it. There isn't a lot of complexity to this beer but it is really tasty. I think this may be my best beer yet.

This is the last bottle of this beer.....For now, and probabaly in this incarnation. So I thought I'd do a re review to see how it has aged and if I get the same impressions from it. It pours a dark starless midnight black easily defeating the flashlight test. A two finger dark tan head builds but fades quickly. Aromas of chocolate, dark coffee, licorice, and an herbal note from the hops, and a dark roast barley. The body is medium and lightly oily almost creamy mouthfeel. Rich flavors of chocolate, burnt coffee, salted licorice and dark roasted barley. The herbal hops note rides through with a bit of chocolate and roasty darkness to for a mild short lived aftertaste. This falls somewhere between a Irish stout and a oatmeal. It is pretty tasty and an i don't mind saying "I made that."

This is the third batch of beer I have made. An oatmeal stout. It's called Grandma's Old Stick because my Grandmothers old beer brewing stir stick was.found and given to me. I did not use it but had it with me the whole brew day and let it rest on top the fermenter while the yeast worked, then left it in with the bottles whilst they aged. It pours black as coal and releases a 2 finger coffee colored head. Aromas are of roast barley, dark chocolate, scorched molasses, spent coffee grounds, chocolate and mild tar. Taste is very roast barley, but also caramel, molasses, chocolate and a light herbal note from the hops. The body is medium and the mouthfeel is a bit light especially for an oatmeal stout. Over all it's not bad but need less roast barley and less hops I think.
