I'm a beer geek who went from disliking all beer to having over a thousand reviews, being an active homebrewer, and becoming a beer writer in about three years. I run, which covers Georgia and Southeastern beer, and I write for Southern Brew News.

  • Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabaza
    rated 3.5 15 years ago

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

    Heavy carbonation calls for a gentle pour. The body is a dark wood stain and the aroma and flavor both have that touch of sourness that all Jolly Pumpkin beers have. Nuts and woods come from the dark malt.

  • Left Hand Terra-RyeZD Black Rye Lager
    rated 3.8 15 years ago

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

    This beer was surprisingly viscous at the pour, but didn't come across as overly thick or cloying in the mouthfeel. This is a surprisingly malty lager. Lots of spice from the rye, some slight astringency. A very light roast backs up the rest. Pretty tasty beer.

  • Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale
    rated 3.8 15 years ago

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

    There was a distinct hop note emanating from the bottle when I uncapped it, but this is actually a fairly unhoppy beer by Stone standards dried fruits and nuts come from the malt and yeast and there's a faint chocolate in the finish.

  • Allagash Black
    rated 3.6 15 years ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 8

    A very dark cola brown with a light khaki head. Heavy carbonation. Perhaps a little too much. Fairly dry chocolate, a little anise note in the back. I The mouthfeel remains a little foamy even when the head recedes because of the high carbonation.

  • Hoppin' Frog Mean Manalishi
    rated 3.8 15 years ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    This is a very nice IPA. Nice citrusy hops on the nose. A very rich (by IPA standards) maltiness backs up the assertive, but not harsh, bitterness. Pretty tasty. Carries its weight well.
