Ommegang Wild at Heart: 6.5– This is a very flavorful and tasty wild yeast beer, and doesn’t seem to have any drawbacks, but it’s fairly standard as far as unique yeast beers go.

Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale: 6.5 – It’s actually got a lot of nice flavor to it, and isn’t just hop city. These Shiner beers have been mostly middling, but this is certainly the best so far.

Yes it’s more scotch. Come fight me if you have a problem with that. Anyway this week we discuss one of our more recent finds, and one that we love – because so far we’ve yet to find a 12 year (albeit blended) scotch for this price point that we can drink time and time again and still enjoy it.
Sebago Bourbon Barrel Stout: 4.0 – See the problem I have now when it comes to beers doing specifically bourbon barrel aging is that it’s a misguided attempt (as is the case here), because it just makes the beer too sweet, and not really something you enjoy drinking, but then I remember Allagash when they did their Black in bourbon barrels, and then wonder why everyone else is having such a hard time with it.

Weyerbacher Blasphemy Quadrupel Ale: 5.0 – Because this quad is also aged, it’s simply way too mellow of a beer, even for a quad style ale. It’s certainly not a bad beer, but it feels like drinking a heavy cream or something with a bunch of spices.

In place of an article this week for one of my favorite scotches of all time, I have a video instead. Make no mistake I too enjoy Lagavulin as much as that man, and my brevity comes not from a lack of desire to write about the scotch, but that really nothing more needs to be said. This is in my top 10 of greatest things I have ever drunk in my life.
Shiner Kosmos Reserve: 5.5 – I’ve been told this is basically a watered down version of a previous American Pale they had. Much like the beer it’s not that I’m angry about it, but I’m mostly just disappointed and disinterested.
