MAINE - Rob Tod's interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Allagash White is brewed with a generous portion of wheat and a special blend of spices, this beer is light and slightly cloudy in appearance, with a spicy aroma. Overall, it is a beer that is very drinkable and smooth any time of the year.
Bell's Cherry Stout
Larry Bell is the Stout King. He makes at least 8 stouts and this is one of my favorites. A well made stout with a hint of cherry. Seriously, this is good beer.
Bell's Expedition Stout
Russian Imperial Stout weighing in at 10.5%abv. Big, Malty body and a warming glow from all that alcohol. Yummy!
Brooklyn Chocolate Stout
An excellent Imperial Stout. Lot's of dark roasted malt - but no real chocolate. It just tastes that way. Finishes with bittersweet chocolate.
Captain Lawrence Smoked Porter
NEW YORK - A complex Porter with aromas of smoked wood, licorice and dark fruit. Flavor is a balance of smokiness, roasted malt and malty sweetness 6%
Corsendonk Christmas Ale
BELGIUM - Malt & spice dominate the nose. Spices are well integrated into the beer - this is NOT one of those "pumpkin pie in a glass" beer. This is really, really tasty. A bit of 'root beer', coffee & chocolate in the finish. Medium body. Deep amber color. A staff favorite
BELGIUM - A triple in style. The young drinkers just love the pink elephant logo
DeMolen Hel & Verdoemenis
NETHERLANDS - More of a Russian Imperial Stout in style. Note of licorise, espresso roasted coffee beans & a hint of smoke from the dark roasting of the malts.
Deschutes The Abyss 2013
OREGON - Big Ass Imperial Stout. We’ve stored this for over 18 months & it should be as smooth as black silk. 11%abv
Drie Fonteinen Zwet.be
BELGIUM - Armand is branching out here. It’s an English-style Porter made with two yeasts – one is brettanomyces. 7%abv
Dupont Avec les bons Voeux
BELGIUM - arguably the best Holiday Ale made in Belgium. A bit of citrus in the finish. Lots of dried fruit in the taste. Medium to full body. Hops in the taste & finish. Dry finish. 9.5%abv
Founders Dark Penanace
MICHIGAN - Imperial Black IPA with Chinook & Centennial hops, which give that pine-resin aroma & finish. This has 100 IBU's so it is quite hoppy and somewhat bitter. The ton of malt they add helps to balance that bitterness. Way too easy to drink for a 9%abv beer.
The original Ice Beer. Believe it or not, Bud Ice was not the first one. This ia a bock (lager) that was frozen and the ice that formed was removed. Resulted in a concentrated lager. 9.2%abv. Yummy!
Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale
BELGIUM - That's right, our own private label brewed for us by the family-owned Van Steenberge brewery, just outside Ghent, Belgium. Medium body, red color, somewhat fruity nose, malt flavor with a slight lactic taste. Great Stuff! A real thirst quencher and palate cleanser.
Petrus Aged Pale Ale
BELGIUM - This is a staff favorite in bottle. This beer is aged 18 months in oak barrels, which provides the sour note this beer exhibits. Kegs of this are a real treat. Both refreshing and bracing.
Port Santa's Little Helper
CALIFORNIA- This an Imperial Stout. Made with 10 different malts with a bit of dark Belgian candi sugar. Tomme uses just enough hops to balance this big beer. 10%abv
Russian River Blind Pig
CALIFORNIA - Perhaps my favorite West Coast IPA. Solid hop aromas and finish backed up by the perfect balance of malt. 6.1%abv
Russian River Damnation
CALIFORNIA - blonde ale influenced by Duvel. Great aromas of banana and pear. Medium body with flavors of pale roasted malt and spice from the hops. hops in the finish give it a crisp, dry finish.
Russian River Pliny the Elder
CALIFORNIA - Beer 8%abv
Stoudt's Fat Dog Stout
I just love Carol & Ed Stoudt. They were true pioneers in craft brewing. This is my favorite oatmeal stout of all time.
