And if there's any crying going on here it's those that state they have no time to drink beer. Why the heck are you here and brewing if you don't have time to drink?!?!?
Oh I have time to drink just not drink/judge and write up a review for it. Unless of course you're happy with a simple "i liked it or I hate it" review..

Like wildwest I am on a diet thus I'm not drinking on week nights. Trying to drop 70 pounds so I can race a full Ironman in 2011.

Can you not get Spaten Premium or Warsteiner Premium or even Lowenbrau? All three of those are examples of Helles I can find even at Walmart here...

Ha, ha your funny. I live in Sparta, Tennessee. Our most premium beer at walmart is Shocktop, Dos Equis(stay thirsty my friends) and Sam Adams . There is a small tobacco shop 35 miles away that sells a small quantity of decent beers, i'll try there.

If you need interpretation of my chicken scratch let me know.




That's an awesome score sheet! I was about to ask where the heck you got it and then I saw the website in the corner of the picture. Gonna go print me off about 20!

As far as reviews of mine go, I've seen reviews for one of the varieties I sent from everybody who got them. I'm interested to hear what you guys thought of the one with vanilla beans added in secondary. I figured 1 bean in 1 gallon would be good, but a couple reviewers locally have said it's pretty overpowering.

A side note: I'm note a certified judge but I have been training under a couple with our local club. Mainly I don't have the time to study for the BJCP test to get certified. I still think I have a good palate and tasting skills. (feel free to send me samples for testing ) A formal review isn't necessary, but Kilted has the right of it... If my beer tastes like crap, I'd like to know why so I can fix it.

TerapinChef's 999

22oz bottle is a killer, I might add...

Aroma

slight dark fruit notes, some hop nose but somewhat light

Appearance

1/2" head dissipates to a ring around the glass, brown-ish with red highlights

Flavor

nice dry finish, not overly sweet but to style, warming alcohol but not hot. good fermentation profile good balance of malt to hop

Mouthfeel

good carb, nice body but not malt cloying

Overall Impression

One of the better barleywines I've had

I've communicated with TC on the other beer in the package.

It's funny how we got keyboard lashed for not reviewing beers, reviewed said beers, and no reply back.

I'm here, I'm here. I wasn't talking about my beer in particular. I just made a sheet of who had done reviews and who hadn't and I hung it by the computer and it looked very sad. I understand it's a big beer and all of those reasons that they're not done. I didn't expect any of my receipiants to run right to the fridge and review my barleywines. I just wanted to light the burner so at least the reviews might start trickling in. This thread is very dead when you think about the number of postings that it should have...by 2 months after 8/8/08 there were over 400 posts in the exchange thread. This one is just over 175, and at least 20 of them have been mine

I did submit reviews of the two beers I recieved. Wildwest you probably had one of the Helles styles I made. It overcarbed in the bottle and was not as good as when it was young. A fresh Helles has a very good nice malt flavor to it. It's more mild than most homebrews, a lot of regular american style beer drinkers enjoy it. You just might be more into much more flavorful beers.

M. Much thinner than I'd expected of a BW, drier

O good though not as much malt/sweet as I'd like from a BW

I'm going to try the other bottle sometime and re-review, seeing the other reviews from this BW make me think I may have gotten an off bottle.

figured this would be fun to revisit.

A: Dimished, still malty sweet, no alcohol though, no hops in the nose

T: fruityness, any fusel alcohols are gone, good bitterness to make it balanced

M: Still a bit thinner than I'd expect for BW but good, doesn't hit you in the face or stick to your tongue

O: Very nice, noticed I didn't have any sherry notes now (which is strange). Poured with more carbonation this time, had a head on it all the way to the bottom of the glass


I'll re-review Couvas' 999 sometime too
