The Pirates are off today and I've been too busy to catch up on some scanning. Let's have some beer.
I did not have any Sam Jackson.....
These beers were consumed over the last two/three months mainly with my beer tasting group.
Stone Xocoveza is a milk stout brewed with coffee and spices and has been one of my favorite winter releases since they started distributing a few years back. The "Extra Anejo" version is taking the base beer and aging it in Bordeaux and tequilla barrels. This was a pretty wild beer with lots of flavors coming at you from different directions. The tequilla taste is noticeable, but it is mellowed by the sweetness. Overall I liked the beer, but found the base beer to be a little more enjoyable.
The beer in the glass is actually General Braddock's ipa from Brew Gentlemen Brewery out of Braddock PA. My brother was nice enough to bring me back some growlers to share with some of my friends tomorrow, but gave a little taste out of a growler he opened when he got home. It was easily one of the best ipa's I have ever had. As you can see the beer is super hazy and had a subtle tropical flavor.
If you ever are interested in trading beer drop me a line.
