NEW STUFF - USA - Part 27

11/05/2016

Citizens,

Bit of a mixed bag on Breweries this week but with some cracking new & limited release brews from Victory,Stone & Clown Shoes.

NEW ON THE SHELF :

Stone Americano Stout Imperial Stout 8.7% 
The coffee notes in Stone Americano Stout are bold, rich and full of American swagger. For each 120-barrel batch, we incorporated over 250 lbs. of artisanal espresso-roast beans into the mash and added in Columbus, Chinook, Amarillo and Cascade hops to invigorate the coffee taste with a slight citrus and resin hop presence. When it came time to selecting our coffee, we chose the same local roasters who contributed to our sought-after 2013 Stone ESPRESSO Imperial Russian Stout. Their fantastic beans helped us achieve this dark, hoppy and wonderfully aromatic espresso stout.  RB  =  98

 

 

Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine 11.6% 2016 650ml
From time to time, we like to tweak the recipes of some of our most long-standing beers—like Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine—to create unique variations. This year we’re taking it to the next level by dry-hopping it with Pekko hops—a new varietal from Washington’s Yakima Valley—which in turn add notes of stone fruit, orange, lemon and mint to this bready, toffee-like beast of a beer.          RB = 99


 

Clown Shoes The Barista American Strong Ale 9% 650ml
A Clown Shoes legend, Brown Angel, put away her dancing shoes to focus on extracting espresso, brewing coffee and pouring latte art with Zen-like focus. The Barista Breakfast Brown is crafted with Maris Otter malt, flaked oatmeal, cold brewed espresso, milk sugars and the spirit of angel wings.    RB  =  97

 

 

Clown Shoes Evil Crawfish Imperial IPA 9% 650ml
Once upon a time a man walked into a bar where a friend of ours was tending the taps. He tried to order an 
Eagle Claw Fist, but got it wrong and asked for an Evil Crawfish. When we heard the story, after much laughter, we knew one day we’d make the beer. Finally, here it is, built off of ECF, but cleaner, meaner, less bitter, and dry-hopped with Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic and Nelson Sauvin.  Rb  92

 

 

Victory Hop Raunch Imperial India Pale Ale 9% 354ml
To our hop ranchers, who coax and cultivate our enticing and flavorful hops, we raise this glass. Selecting the finest varieties in their natural, whole flower form, we craft our Hop Ranch Imperial India Pale Ale, as a celebration of their successes. Pungent, floral and intense, this represents America’s best, in every relaxing sip.   RB  =  98

 

 

Victory Blackboard Series Agave IPA 7% 354ml
Flavor Fresh, crisp and clean, this ale offers bold and refreshing flavors. Touched with agave syrup and grapefruit juice, this brew boasts great hop aroma and a light citric bite.


Victory Golden Monkey Abbey Tripel  9% 354ml Cans

Enchanting and enlightening, this golden, frothy ale boasts an intriguing herbal aroma, warming alcohol
esters on the tongue and light, but firm body to finish. Exotic spices add subtle notes to both the aroma and flavor. Strong, sensual and satisfying.   RB  =  95

Drink well.
