Smuttynose Brewing Company – Smuttynose Big A IPA (American Double)

  • High Goodness
  • OK if you are reading these posts in order you will know that like 7 or 8 beers ago I said that I hate Imperials/Doubles. This is still a true statement, but there is an exception for every rule, and this is an exception. Holy crap nuts this is good! It is strong as hell and there is no way I would drink more than 1 of them in a row because it would knock me on my ass… But hell yes! That one will be awesome.

Boston Beer Company – Samuel Adams Black Lager (Schwarzbier)

  • Lowish Goodness
  • It is kind of annoying that Sam Adams are so good. I want to hate on them because they have TV commercials but damn it, their beers are good. I don’t think this Schwarzbier is as distinct as some of the others I have had but it is really good. Dark as a coal miners soul and so very very smooth it is pretty much perfect.

21st Amendment Brewery – 21st Amendment IPA (American IPA)

  • High Goodness
  • I have been bitching for a while that all of the IPA’s I have been trying recently all taste the same. Good but not outstanding, or nothing that really distinguishes it from everything else out there. Well this is kind of the same but better. I am not sure if I can point out what is making me happy about it but this beer is good. Nothing super unique but everything (smell, hops and malts) all work together to make a tasty beer.

RJ Rockers Brewing Company – Patriot Pale (American Pale Ale)

  • Highish Goodness
  • Jesus there is a lot of crap floating in this beer. It looks like somebody unrolled a cigarette and dumped it into the bottle. Ewww… It also smells kind of like soap, which is odd considering how dirty it looks. Shit! I know what that smell is, my beers smell like this. I wonder if there is any extract brewing going on with it. Any way it tastes kind of like shit too.
