So I got this fun idea for a project after reading the beer log sticky and visiting a Total Wine for the 1st time. I am going to start a log of all the Craft beer varieties I drink. But the difference to the sticky log is I will take a picture of each bottle I track down and drink as well as numbering them to keep a count of how many in total I've had.


Beer#1 Rodenbach- Palm Brewery

Nice cherry red color, very carbonated. Decent head on the pour that fades pretty quickly. Smells like apple cider vinegar. Taste is vinegar like upfront but not too sour, bitter, or overpowering. Not a very long finish and minimal funk.

My Grade - A-

Beer#2 - Positive Contact - Dogfish Head

Yellow-orange like color with pretty good carbonation, decent head retention and lacing left on the glass. The aroma is a bit spicy and fruity, with tones of apples and the belgian yeast. You can taste the fuji apples and spices up front followed by clove and a short cayenne like finish. Pretty crisp and dry. It was an interesting beer considering the unique ingredients but I probably wont get it again, though it wasnt bad just not my style.

My grade - B

Beer#4 - Lucky 13 - Lagunitas

One of the better Ambers Ive had!! Light amber color, good carbonation and lacing. Sweet malty, slightly piney and citrusy hop aroma. Nice slightly toasty malt taste with a good hop finish thats citrusy, earthy, and a little bit piney. The balance is great. Very well bodied but not too heavy. Very drinkable beer at almost 9abv that makes this dangerously pleasurable.

My Grade - A+

Beer#6 - Double Chocolate Stout - Rogue

One of my favorites!!! Very very dark color with smooth creamy brown head. Well carbed, good mouthfeel, and medium bodied. Intoxicating milk chocolate, mildy roasty and dark chocolate on the nose. Flavor is huge milk chocolate, just amazing. Great chocolate stout.

My Grade - A+
