New Beer Friday 12/9/16
Vernal Brewing Rigor Mortis Red Ale - The nose has aromas of roasted malts, and caramel. Nice hop presence up front balanced nicely by the rush of malts. Really nice balance with this brew. Overall really a solid brew and definitely worth a shot. 4.0% ABV @ Vernal, coming soon to the Wasatch Front Area.
2 Row Dark Alley Imperial Stout - The nose has chocolate with a hint of cookie followed by a bit of roasted malt and mocha. The flavor is very intricate. As in the nose, there is a bit of sweetness on the tounge which quickly turns in to deep strong dark chocolate. The bittersweet finish is biting but leaves the mouth watering. A few more sips brings out molasses and cocoa. As it warms a bit of raisin edges it's way out, but the dark coco stands strong.Considering the ABV is 13.4% the alcohol is pretty well subdued - don't be fooled, you will loose if you underestimate it. @ Beerhive, Bayou, Beer Bar, Slackwater - goes on sale to the public at the brewery on Tuesday Dec 13th
Proper Brewing Beer Bar Blonde - Brewed exclusivly for SLC's Beer Bar. Havn't had it yet, it will debut tonight at 7pm at beer Bar.
Returning is a newly amplified Czechulator. This new version comes in at over 9% from the former 7.6%.
Bohemian CzechUlator Dopple Bock - The nose is nutty, chocolate, clean notes of malty sweetness. Some toffee and caramel in there as well. The flavor starts off similarly with some notes of traditional chocolatey, nutty, and toffee malts. As the flavor develops on the palate, though, I get some berry sweetness towards the end. Easy drinking and enjoyable. A limited release that is only available at Bohemian's Brewery.
Be sure to check out New Beer Friday on KBER 101 with Mick and Allen along with myself at 3:30pm this afternoon.
