Sorry I'm a bit late with my reviews. Took me a while to get around to tasting all of them. I don't think I figured out what the special beer was unless it had to do with the hopping of the IPA.

Simply Stout
Disclaimer: I haven't been a fan of dark beers in the past, but I'm learning. It poured jet black with a caramel colored thick rocky head. I could see the viscousness of the beer as I poured it. I could taste a pronounced, but still balanced smoke flavor. There was a slight sweetness which went well with the bold flavor. Not much aroma. On each sip I tasted a citrusy twang on the rim of the glass like it had been rubbed with a lime. I have no idea where that came from. There was a lot of sediment settling in the glass by the time I finished. Overall a good beer which will encourage me to try more stouts in the future.

Ammerillo Ale Pale Ale
Light color with a clean whispy head. Strong hops flavor with a mild aroma. Strong bitterness which seems to border on an IPA. Good carbonation. A refreshing beverage on a hot summer day.

Imperial IPA
Holy hops! This is a hoppy beer. It poured in a thick orange color with a thick head. The taste was bold. Hops dominated the aroma, taste and bitterness. Definitely an uber-IPA.

Default Acetaldehyde

Now that everyone has provided feedback on these beers, I am finally able to reveal the attributes of the special beer.

Taste----- First impression is I have never had a stout like this before, very different taste than im used to in a stout. t does seem a little on the sweet side to me.

Overall: I'm wondering if this bottle may be infected. I'm looking at your recipe that you provided and everything looks fine. The grain bill, the hops, gravity, yeast. I can taste the stout in the back end, but the acid flavor is a bit overpowering. Either that or shipping just may have not been kind getting it all the way to me. Looking at the other posts, this seems to be isolated at just my bottle.

I brewed ten gallons of this stout. Five 5 went into a keg, and turned out fine. The other 5 gallons got bottled. Somewhere along the line it picked up a bacterial infection. My guess is between the secondary and bottling. I tasted a bottle of this shortly after I shipped these out an immediately realized that this beer was bad IMHO. Kudos to you guys for choking it down, and finding it drinkable. To me this beer tasted of green apples which is usually a sign of young beer or an infection. What you tasted was Acetaldehyde.

While you all were able to taste something different about this beer, shouts out to Brewsmith being the closest on identifying it!
Now you all know what Acetaldehyde tastes like in a beer.

Look for more beer from me in the mail to make up for this bad batch.

Thanks again for all the feedback.

If you liked it, that is fine. You tasted something different, you didn't know what it was...this is a start. It's great that you could really identify something about this beer that was different. Pinning a description to the taste is another thing. Time, and exposure will help you on your way.
