Wells & Young’s Ltd – Young’s Double Chocolate Stout (Milk Stout)

  • 5.20% ABV
  • So M1 is baking a cake that called for a Stout (I know it sounds awesome) and this is the beer she bought. Normally I don’t buy stouts because I don’t really like them but oh man am I glad she got this one. It is not as heavy as I would have thought being a Double and all.  It is also not as chocolaty as you would think. Basically it is everything is almost perfect balance.

Shmaltz Brewing Company – He’Brew Messiah Bold (American Brown Ale)

  • 5.60% ABV
  • This is actually pretty good. I mean it has a really distinctive malt flavor that is pronounced without being overpowering. Sadly it is not one that I particularly care for, and I dont mean it is bad. It just isnt really the style for me. I am almost positive that this a good beer it just isnt my style.
  • – Dont buy (for me).

Lion Brewery, Inc. – Stegmaier IPA (American IPA)

  • 6.80% ABV
  • OK, there is a good IPA and after the beers I have had tonight this is a good thing. Nothing out of the ordinary but it hits all of the right notes. OK then I guess I am running on empty for cleaver comments, but after drinking this I am going to change the other reviews for the evening to dont buy because this is much better.
  • + Buy again.

DL Geary Brewing Company – Geary’s Pale Ale (English Pale Ale)

  • 4.50% ABV
  • This is actually not bad which is surprising for an English Pale Ale. Well surprising for me at least because I appreciate a generous amounts of hops in my beers and this one doesn’t have it. What it does have is a very smooth almost buttery taste to it. Well butter infused with hops and malts, I mean there is no question that this is a beer. Just a kind of muted one that is very drinkable. Decent but I am not really digging it.
  • – Dont buy again.
