    So, we recently started carrying Shiner beer at my store. I tried Shiner Bock, but forgot to post a review. Anyway, I’ll make up for it by reviewing White Wing. It’s a Belgian White style.

The color is a very light yellow, slightly cloudy, which I expected. The aroma and taste are very similar to other Belgian-style whites I’ve tried in the past, reminds me of cooking brats. I don’t eat brats anymore, but I still remember the flavor & aroma. This is quite possibly one of the most easy to drink Belgian whites I’ve ever had. 

Overall, I would say this is a really good beer. Not my favorite of its style, but it’s a good one. I could probably drink the whole six pack in one sitting if I wanted.

    I’m at home, watching a foreign film, and debating what I want for dinner. In the meantime, I’m trying this beer. It’s Stone Brewing’s Smoked Porter with chipotle peppers.

The aroma comes off a bit spicy, you can smell the pepper, and it’s a bit smoky. The taste isn’t quite as smoky as the aroma, but the taste has a spicy kick with the chipotle peppers. For it being as spicy as it claims to be, it’s rather easy to drink.

Compared to Punishment, this beer is easy to drink. If you like all things spicy, it’s right up your alley. If not, I’d suggest taking a pass on this.

    So, I purchased this bottle a month or two ago, and I figured I’d give it a try today. Plasma Sake IPA is what it is. It’s brewed by Element Brewing Company.

The aroma is telling my nose rice, slight hint of hops. The taste is bitter yet smooth, and I can taste the IPA and Sake. It’s a good blend. Also, I find it easily drinkable.

I really like this beer. It’s a bit pricey, but well worth it. I’d like to see if it tastes better refrigerated.

    Since it’s approaching the New Year, I thought it would be a great idea to try a powerful beer to close out 2013. This is Punishment by Stone Brewing.

I am getting chili pepper in the aroma. Jalapeños, especially jalapeños. The taste is flipping spicy. I poured a big mug of water to aide me if I need it, which I will. The aftertaste is like that of eating a jalapeño in one bite. And for the record, this is extremely difficult to drink.

It’ll be a while before I finish this, but I don’t mind this beer. I feel like I’m drinking hot sauce, but I’ll get over it. If you like super spicy things, this beer is right up your alley.

    I’ve been buying mostly beers I’ve already reviewed. This is an exception. I think the last time I reviewed a Sam Smith was when I reviewed the organic chocolate stout. This is their winter welcome ale. 

It’s got a rather flat aroma. Either my sense of smell is shot or there’s nothing to it. The taste is slightly bitter, mildly spicy, with a weird buttery aftertaste. Not sure why I’m getting that. It’s a pretty easily drinkable beer.

This was an enjoyable beer, I liked it. I’m glad it’s just a seasonal, as I may forget about it until next winter & purchase it again. I’ve never been disappointed by the beers Sam Smith makes.

    I decided to break out of hibernation with a new post. My beer of choice today is Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean. 

The aroma is quite smoky, with subtle hints of vanilla. The taste is very smoky, with a solid vanilla aftertaste. It isn’t too strong, so I’d say it’s rather easy to drink.

This beer is one I’d highly recommend. I have yet to be disappointed with anything Stone releases, so if you can, go out and buy a bottle or two.

    I wanted to hold off a bit longer on drinking this one, but I couldn’t resist. I am drinking Fuck Art This Is Advertising Quadruple by To Øl.

I was picking up an apple aroma when I first poured it. Tastes kind of fruity, malty. It’s a strong beer, makes it a little moderately easy to drink.

I enjoyed the beer. I enjoyed the label even more. This is one of those beers that should be saved for a special occasion. I recommend grabbing a bottle while you still can.

    Happy birthday to me! I’m splurging today and bought a Mokah by Southern Tier.

It has a strong coffee aroma, a little chocolatey. The taste is smooth, chocolatey, velvety. I find it ver easy to drink. It reminds me of one of the Starbucks frozen drinks.

I greatly enjoyed this beer. I highly recommend it to anyone. It’s not a very common beer to find, but pick it up if you can.

    Tonight I have decided to dedicate my first blog post in the new apartment in which I’ve moved. I’m drinking Imperial Compass by Southern Tier.

The aroma is earthy & floral. The taste is hoppy & citrusy. I find it mildly drinkable. 

In my opinion, I’d highly recommend this beer. I enjoyed it a lot. If you can find this beer, please try it.
