New Belgium Lips of Faith Cocoa Mole

Pretty interesting brew. Up front it is a lot of chocolate & cinnamon with a subtle spiciness. The finish is more spice and the slight pepper burn lingers a little while. Really quite nice.

Founders Curmudgeons Better Half

Not at fan at all. I know a lot of people like this, but I don't like beer that tastes like I am taking a shot of bourbon with every sip. Way over the top in my opinion.

AleSmith Wee Heavy Scotch Ale

This is a very nice beer. The smoothness really surprised me. Nose is chocolate, smoke, cinnamon, & roasted malt. Flavor is much the same and the alcohol is very well hidden.

Sly Fox Ichor

Your standard dark fruit and heavy malt flavors you would expect in a quad. A little bit of alcohol warming, but it is nice and subtle. Fig, chocolate, raisin. Pretty decent sipper.

Samuel Adams Imperial White

Just OK, I wasn't crazy about it and wouldn't buy again.
