Kingfisher...Kingfisher?...India/US...7
Very nice import lager. Very malty and full of flavor. Not far from a true Czech or German pils.

Drop Top Amber...Widmer...US...7
Fairly balanced, easy drinking amber. A bit light in color, body, and hops.

Three Philosophers...Ommegang...US...7
Tart; quite refreshing given the ABV. Dark fruit, caramel, slight roast notes.

Sam Adams Chocolate Bock...Boston Beer Company...US...7

Leaves a little bit to be desired since it retailed for 16 bucks a bottle and is only 6% ABV, nice chocolate notes but a bit thin on body

Lucky Kat....Magic Hat Brewery... 7

A very dry IPA with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Bitterness raises by a factor of "ex-girlfriend" if you dump the yeast into the glass. Took about two beers to appreciate the flavor, as the bitter aftertaste leaves you wanting another beer. Definitely a good beer once you get used to it.

Shelter Pale Ale....Dogfish Head...8.5

I know Dogfish Head isn't all that, but I love this beer as my default buy. A little on the sweet side, but good hops balance this out. Once poured, it is a very beautiful beer, light amber in color and a head that leaves a very nice lace.

Plus, this gets extra points as being a local brewery and because Sam Calagione is bat**** insane.

Default DFH Midas Touch

Midas touch.... Dogfish Head... 9.25

This is a very unique and complicated beer. Drink it cold.

When this beer first touches your tongue, the honey flavor fools you into thinking you're drinking a carbonated meade. As you swallow it, the flavor of the white grape floods you palate, almost but not quite overtaking the honey. The flavor of the barley and hops adds in at the beer hits your stomach, so when you exhale in delight at the honey and grape, the wonderful malt and hops hit your nose.

Each flavor is distinct, but not muddled. Despite the different flavors and smells, it all comes together in a wonderful gestalt, leaving the drinker with the feeling of a transcendent beer experience, and goofy-ass smile on her/his face.

Well worth the gojillion dollars a four-pack costs.

Celtic Ale........Harpoon Brewery...........7.5

Formerly known as Hibernian, this is the first time I've tried this beer. Malty and balanced with a dry finish as the hops come through on the back of the palate with earthy undertones. Simple enough for most non-craft drinkers to enjoy but refined enough for all but the stingiest craft drinker. This could be my go to beer until May!

Abbaye des rocs Triple Imperiale (on tap) - Belgium - 10

A most excellent, deep but mild, not too sweet, fruit/wine like dark Belgian... the kind that makes you want to drink nothing else all night.

Traquair House Ale (11oz) - Scotland - 9.5

This is one of my favorite beers. I'll give it a 9.5 just because I haven't tried it in a while. Definite prune flavor to this one. Smooth. Can find it at Bevmo for about $6 sometimes

I've been a little lax in keeping up with my brew log. Here are a few entries past.

Stella Artois...Stella Artois...Belgium...6.6
If it's been properly stored, it's a decent, refreshing lager.

Bigfoot 2009...Sierra Nevada...US...8.6
Fantastic barleywine. Probably the best year yet. Really floral, mild malt.

Old Rasputin...North Coast...US...7.6
Great imperial stout. Very, very rich and malty.

Pine Belt Pale Ale...Southern Star...US...6.2
Another canned micro. Brewed in TX. Not too shabby!

Hoegaarden...Hoegaarden...Belgium...9.4
My favorite wit. Blue Moon severely pales in comparison.

Trippel...New Belgium...US...7.2
Not too shabby. Hints of banana and clove.

Strongbow...Bulmers...UK...7.4
Good cider.

Chicken Killer...Santa Fe...US...6.2
Alright barleywine. A little medicinal in aroma, quite cloudy. Nice flavor.

Winter Stout (09)...St George...US...7.2
A nice RIS. Not as bold as others in the same category.

Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale...Brouwerij Van Steenberge N.V....Belgium...6.8
Very interesting fruity/caramel/sour blend. Mild. Likely a good “intro” sour beer.
