HH at a new Tap Room I had forgot about, under my Resistol 3X felted edge. Full service patio welcomes pipes & cigars. Enjoyed some ice cold Big Sky Moose Drool Brown & Malty Ale.

Excellent. Thanks for sharing Jack. I would definitely order Moose Drool Brown Ale if nothing else but for the experience of such a cool named beer. Was it worthy for hunting down?


Yesterday evening Surley Controled Chaos IPA (West Coast IPA) was choice for an eveningwalkabout. This is a dry citus West Coast IPA with a touch of bitterness. I did like it.

Physically tired tonight and totally enjoying my "normal" Surley Supreme (crisp and citrus) pilsner beer.

It's widely distributed & available here in bottles & cans; never seen it on tap. Same thing with their India Pale Ale. The Drool has a nice roasted Malt taste & easy drinking yr around @ 5% ABV. Nice mouth feel without being too thick. It would pair well with a strong cigar with a dark wrapper or even a light Connecticut Shade wrapper & let the beer dominate.

I saved this chart rating an agave harvest & the numbers are not important. I circled the flavors that I like in a Tequila & soon realized with a little "plug & play" with a few other descriptors the chart could be used for other complex beverages. To sub for agave & black pepper I might add smoky, nutty, malty in my circle. For Speyside Single Malt I would want dried/fried fruit.

What would your chart look like?

Jack I do not have as much experience but I will contribute.

Pepper, Citrus, Minerals, Earth, Flowers and fruit. Having a shelf with many different bottles I can have smoky, malty, dark earth, and cherry options. More often than not I choose on a whim and not necessarily a taste sweet spot.

An example recently was my choice to sip a Yami 12 after having a beer socailly. The Japanese whiskey provided a fruity ending after have some sour IPA's.

At some point I should start doing comparison pours.

Back to the Tap Room under my Dunlap Supreme 4X for some Smithwicks Irish Ale. Smooth & easy drinking at 4.5% ABV. More of that good malty flavor.

Then a Boulder Beer Shake Chocolate Porter desert beer @ 5.9%. Every time I've had a chocolate desert beer it always makes me think it might be good in front of a tv snacking on white popcorn or popped Milo. By itself drinking one is definitely enough.

Chocolate and porter, sound perfect.

The 90 Schilling Amber must be high quality as it bears the 90 Shilling label.

(Historically the Scottish were taxed high quality beer 90 shillings.)

Cheers, Eric -
I had heard that or read that before somewhere as to how it came to get its name. I've drank 90 Schillings before & enjoyed it but it's not real common here. There is a local franchise pub operation with 5-6 locations around & they have it. Now it's at the Tap Room as well. If you find it you should try it.
