  • Three Floyds Dark Lord Imperial Stout
    rated 3.8 17 years ago

    Aroma: 9 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    I'm going to have to agree with the recent rating trend for this beer, or, at least the '07 vintage. Coffee and chocolate in the aroma with a bit of earthiness. Pours absymal black with a small touch of head. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, somewhat coating and flat. Roasty and lightly caramel flavor, some hops, molasses and quite a bit of alcoholic heat, good flavors, but not well integrated. A nice Imperial Stout, but the Dark Lord still reports to the Yeti as far as I'm concerned.

  • Stone 8th Anniversary Ale
    rated 3.8 17 years ago

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    Toasty and mildy nutty and roasty aroma, very grainy with a bit of wood. Dull brown with a bit of haze and a wisp of foam. Surprisingly well attenuated and not sticky mouthfeel with nice, soft carbonation. Nice, big brown ale flavor, some alcohol heat, a bit of cocoa, nuttiness and lots of toasty malt. A good offering from Stone that has cellared quite well.

  • Mule Kick Oatmeal Stout
    rated 2.9 17 years ago

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 5 | Mouthfeel: 5 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    This is really more of a fusion between a sweet/oatmeal stout, schwarzbier and a Carnagie style Baltic Porter. It has lots of AB house yeast character matched with cocoa, coffee and sugary sweetness. Slightly sharp carbonation and lacking body, thin enough to put it into Brown Porter if not Dark Mild territory with its watery mouthfeel. Way to over-mash, AB. Still, its not entirely bad, just don't go in expecting Schlafly Oatmeal Stout or Rogue Shakespeare Stout.

  • Square One Anniversary Ale
    rated 3.4 17 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Well played, Square One, well played. Hoppy and fruity aroma with a touch of smoky/roasty notes. Dark brown with fleeting eggshell foam. Nice hoppy flavor, richly malty, but a bit too sweet for me, seems under attenuated. A good brew.

  • Rogue Monk Madness
    rated 3.9 17 years ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    Too hoppy to be an IPA, too malty to be a DIPA, but not quite indulgent enough for a Barleywine...American Strong Ale it is! Hoppy, very hoppy aroma with plenty of supporting malt. Pours medium copper with a nice dollop of carbon dioxide which provides a pleasant mouthfeel. Tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, and other citrus with a touch of piney hops and biscuity, toasty malt. A winner from Rogue. Monks may have nothing to do with it, but so what.
