Back on Track!

Okay, after writing out the various reviews that I had missed, it’s time to get back to the the beers I’m currently drinking and enjoying while watching various superhero movies! With Iron Man and Iron Man 2 watched, it was time to move on to the Incredible Hulk. And with angry hulk comes tasty beer.

Beer: Life and Limb

Brewery: Sierra Nevada/Dogfish Head

Style: American Strong Ale

ABV: 10.2%

Location: Chico, CA/Milton, DE

Appearance: Black with two and a half fingers of off white head

Aroma: Roasted malts, coffee, maple syrup, alcohol

Taste: Maple syrup sweetness, some figs, molasses, little bit of coffee, and some alcohol burn

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, dry, moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: 1 bomber is perfect before making the switch to something else

Beer Advocate Grade: B+

My Grade: B

I was actually a little disappointed in this beer, I generally like Sierra Nevada beers and there are many tasty Dogfish Head beers as well. I would have thought that this collaboration would have worked out really well, but I think the breweries are better off working on their own.
