Machinima Nostaligia and beer

A few days ago a friend and I were talking about Red vs. Blue, a machinima series that was absolutely hilarious and filmed using Halo. So the next day we decided to watch the series again and bathe in the nostalgic feelings.

Block 15 Sticky Hands: This batch is fantastic, and doesn’t drink like an 8% beer at all. I also hear that regular cans are in the works? I’ll take Sticky Cans any day of the week!

Lawson’s Finest Liquids Sip of Sunshine: This is an old can, sooooooooo it pales in comparison to the super fresh Sticky Hands. Wasn’t even a fair fight, hops had faded a bit and it just wasn’t the same.

Block 15 Cassidy: Finally getting around to trying Block 15 beers from a few releases ago. This has a great funky nose that carries into the taste with a moderate amount of tartness. I really like this, it’s like a Block 15 sour had a child with an Upright sour.

Block 15 7th Anniversary: Okay, this is even better than Cassidy. Definitely more subtle and nuanced than the more aggressive Cassidy, which actually isn’t that aggressive in its own right.

OEC piece of crap: Yep, it’s terrible, just like my ability to manually focus a camera.

Prairie Pirate Noir: This is really good, and a good way to finally get into Stoutember for the night. Sweet and chocolatey with good bourbon presence.

Deschutes The Abyss 2010: God, this beer is still one of my favorite stouts, they just don’t make em like this anymore. Bitter dark chocolate with some oak and bourbon, but perfectly balanced. Stouts nowadays have gotten so much more aggressive in their flavor profiles, with big hits of one or two flavors, leaving well balanced stouts by the wayside. A+

Cycle Brewing Pallet #2: Not even close to 2010 Abyss. Not. Even. Close.

Casey Brett Loves Citra: OH THANK GOD THE STOUTS ARE OVER! Very tasty dry hopped sour btw.
