Better than Morning Delight

Bourbon County Vanilla Rye is currently drinking better than the most recent batch of Morning Delight. -_-

All of the berries

So “All of the berries” is what kegs of this beer were labeled as back in the day. How is this beer doing? Fucking fantastic. It has gotten more sour, but it’s so much funkier now, while maintaining the, “I’m going to stuff all the berries in the universe down your throat and you’re going to love it” feeling.

Mmmm forced fruitiness.

Maybe not that sorry, this beer is tits.

More American Solera

I honestly don’t remember what beer this is, but it tasted a lot like de Garde’s Cherry Gose, which itself taste like someone had made a diet Cantillon Kriek. Very tasty, and I really like the labels that American Solera uses. On the typical “buy your wine by judging label art” system, this gets a A.

Old Stout?

Deschutes The Abyss 2011: So this beer is old, and sadly, merely okay. 😦

Wait, one more whale.

Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze Vintage 2007: My personal favorite of the big tasting that has made up the last few posts. This bottle did not have a synthetic cork that plagued most of the bottles from this year. Carbonated, but extraordinarily soft, hugely funky, with lots of citrus.

The Whales

Best beers of the tasting.

Toppling Goliath Assassin: Holy mother of barrel! Great viscosity, dark chocolate, huge roast and barrel notes, and not boozy.

Toppling Goliath Morning Delight: So, this is the third batch of Morning Delight and it is the worst one so far. The finish has something goofy going on with it. Previous batches used to finish with a nice sweet maple note, but this batch is bitter and thin. I wonder what happened?

Toppling Goliath Barrel Aged Chainsmoker: Really didn’t know anything about this beer, but it turned out to be my favorite of the three Toppling Goliath beers. Honestly, really not getting any smoke here, but it’s delicious anyway.
