Was so excited when I saw this in the store today,as I’m a big fan of Left Hand. This actually kind of sucks. A very unpleasant hazelnut smell and taste. Oh well.  "6F882EB2-B7C1-44C4-8F71-F35C16EEBB5E.jpeg"

I felt a bit suicidal so I ordered these  8)

They were even more expensive than the single barrel Rain Shadows, but should be better...

But first, a new (and cheap!) Lervig... Loads of very high % dark chocolate, vanilla... Good stuff!..

Waiting for the time when I can finally say, that this has all been wonderful, but now I’m on my way...Phish

Siren is seriously upping its game... I rated this 4.75 on Untappd.

I've tried peanut butter beers twice and both were pretty terrible. That may be a flavor that just isn't doable for beer.

I’ve had some bad ones as well,but thought surely if anyone could get it right they could. I find it hard to believe that their brewmaster tasted this and thought this is a winner.

I also liked this one. I still find them a bit hit and miss, it seems they do quite a few mediocre variations on their base brews but once in a while hit a real winner.

Caribbean Ginger Cake is my all time favourite Stout they have done I think.

Sicillian Lemon Cheesecake my favourite sour.
Pride of Japan :-)

Thoroughly enjoying this series from Nøgne... not all are great, but they are all interesting.

Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,

I suppose it is. Very typical millennial Scandinavian design. Straight lines galore and minimal curves only where you need them. Modern and classic at the same time. I like them for 750ml bottles for some reason.

Just sank this. Bloody good (ignore the goofy, flirty, borderline scary blonde in the background).

Followed up with more BlackStack. A triple, this time.....

"PXL_20210123_212238681.jpg"




Both of these BlackStack brews score better than 4.4 on Untappd. Every offering of theirs I've tried has been fantastic. IMO, they are on par with Other Half, if not a slight cut above. If you can grab one, I suggest you do so.
