Behemoth 7.2% APA.

Not bad better than most but prefer Good George/Emerson's.

On an unseasonably warm mid-December day last week at home.

Tucher Festbier - 88 Very Good, 4.04/5 on Beer Advocate. "This Festbier is brewed as a fuller-bodied Helles lager with a slightly louder presence of old world hops instead of a Marzen and is available to festivals year-round. Germany."
Very drinkable but not exciting.

Visiting the midwest for Christmas this week and next and trying some I don't have access to at home.

O'Fallon Chocolate Cream Cookie Stout - from Maryland Heights, MO. 3.6/5 on Untappd. Reminds me more of a soda pop than even Xingu... which seems really off for a Stout. Drinkable, but that's about it. Pass.

"Uncommon Stout" from Bent River Brewery in Moline, IL - an oatmeal stout infused with coffee. 87 = Very Good (3.86/5/ on Beer Advocate. I might even rate it a bit higher. Very Nice.

Coffee and vanilla imperial stout 10% abv.

Pretty damn good. Not a massive stout fan but enjoy them on occasion. This occasion being Christmas breakfast.

Went down well shared it with some mates and they loved it.
Gonna be generous 9/10.

Emerson's Bird Dog IPA 7.%

Local brewery in my city. One of the early craft beer breweries founded 1993.

Swapped a behemoth hazy IPA. Preferring the hazy IPAs, and hazy APA's over IPA.

Rest of yesterday's efforts. IMG_20211225_172242.jpg

Obolon 6.8. Ukraines first beer. The last Obolon I had was terrible. This variety was a lot nicer and kicked like a mule.

Still wasn't great but splitting the fan with a mate it was easy enough to drink. 6.8 seems to be fair for it's rating.

Some sort of chocolate chilli stout. Only got to sample it. Not really my thing and it's "only" 5% abv. Prefer a stronger one when drinking stouts.
