Good stuff man. I must say, an aged Bigfoot vs a fresh one is a day and night difference. A lot an aged DFH 120.

Beer #54 - Immort Ale - Dogfish Head


Dark copper/amber like color with a 2-3 finger off white head on a rough pour. Fades pretty quick leaving a decent lacing. Carb is good, not too flat but not too bubbly. A lot going on in the aroma. Oak, dark caramel malts, a boozy alcohol hint that mixes itself with notes of vanilla. Taste is equally complex. As the beer hits the tongue oak and peat-like smokiness jump right out, caramel malts and vanilla pick up in the mid palate while the smokey flavors linger. And a hint of maple with some more vanilla/alcohol in the finish. Nice long and subtle finish. The flavors of vanilla and hints of maple really sit on your taste buds and a bit of heat hangs in your chest until you take your next sip. Medium body and tastes better closer to wine temperature where the flavors really open up. Overall a really nice beer, I'm excited to open some up next year when the bottles are 2 years old.

My Grade - A-

Beer #55 - Voodoo Doughnut Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Banana Ale - Rogue

Really rough pour comes to a 2 and a half finger dark cream colored head. Slowly falls back down leaving a decent lacing. Body dark brown/black. Aroma is like banana pez candy. Not a bad thing, but seems more like an extract banana aroma rather than real banana. Taste is the same pez candy banana flavor the second it hits the tongue. Unpleasant slight chalkiness mid palate and some hop bitterness and roast malt bitterness in the finish. Meduim-full bodied but leaves a dry mouthfeel. Honestly I think they missed the mark with this one. And I enjoyed the bacon maple ale. I'm just not getting the chocolate or nuttiness from the beer and the flavors don't blend well or compliment each other. Not sure I want to finish the pint. Thanks Ed for making it possible to try this beer.

My Grade - C.....and I only give that for effort. This isn't a beer I'd recommend.

Very drinkable beer at almost 9abv that makes this dangerously pleasurable.

My Grade - A+

I remember Lucky 13 being severely sweet and sticky. I suggest Maine Beer Co. "Zoe". It's one of the best ambers I've had, if not thee best... Just a friendly suggestion of something to compare Lucky 13 to if you get the chance.

I can't get it down here but would be willing to trade for it. I'm always down to try a beer I've never had, especially if someone recommends it.

I haven't tried this one, but last year's Voodoo donut was terribly disappointing. I'm not really into drinking these wild beers, but appreciate the effort and risk. But it was just a terrible let down. Not sure I'll be trying this one here...
