Avid fans of Honest Booze Reviews know that the Buffalo had a penchant for Goslings 151 as it was the easiest way to conjure the drunken spirit from the man. While it’s been a long time since such a spirit was allowed in the Buffalo Lounge’s bar we feel it’s ripe to try the little brother.
Carlsberg Lager: 1.5 – I don’t know what I was expecting with this beer, but it wasn’t this. I really don’t like it though. I can’t objectively give it nothing, but whatever this is – I am not a fan.
Price $7 for 6-Pack
Miles Davis Bitches Brew: 8.0 – This is a combo of honey beer, some roots, and an imperial stout – and I normally give Dogfish some ‘commentary’ on making weird beers just because they can. Not so here – this is a complex flavorful brew that has some real dark weight to it. I can’t complain though because it just tastes so good. (And yes I did mix it with the album)
Price Average: Miles Davis Bitches Brew $14
I guess this is now a more Laphroaig return (we had like 7 scotches mostly in a row) starting with Laphroaig recently. This is another gift to the lounge in the form of a 15 year old whisky. While the lounge accepts all gifts, we accept those older than our nieces and nephews happily.
Avery Brewing Eighteen: 7.0 – The sweetness is just a bit off, but that is as far as Rye beers, or Saisons go – quite good. The dry hopping may have contributed to the complexity here, but I must warn you. When you open this do it inside a sink, I used a standard wall opener and the top third ended up on the floor.
Price Average: Avery Brewing Eighteen $10
Ashtray Heart: 8.25 – This bottle has been staring at me for a while, and I never bought it on the price point alone. I knew my mind would always wonder, good but is it 28 dollars good. In short this is a fulfilling and rich beer with a bunch of flavor, but balanced enough that it’s not heavy like other imperial stouts. I got the nerve to buy this due to a 20% sale (if buying 3 big bottles of anything) so I am very satisfied for having tried this – but I doubt I’d buy it again.
Price Average: Ashtray Heart $28
