Personal Beer Review: Parallel 49 / Blindman Zombies Ate My Brewery!

Personal Beer Review: Parallel 49 / Blindman Zombies Ate My Brewery!

Usually when I see brewery collaborations like the Parallel 49 / Blindman Zombies Ate My Brewery!, I stay clear, as I haven't had enjoyable experiences in the past. This collaboration between Parallel 49 Brewing and Blindman Brewing hits all on some great high notes, satisfying my palate with great citrus complexity that doesn't become fatiguing.

Personal Beer Review: Modern Times Fortunate Islands

Personal Beer Review: Modern Times Fortunate Islands

The Modern Times Fortunate Islands is a mash up of two different styles, and I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy it. I'm always eager to try new beers that push the style envelope, and this beer does a great job of it.

Personal Beer Review: Collective Arts Liquid Art Fest

Personal Beer Review: Collective Arts Liquid Art Fest

The Collective Arts Liquid Art Fest has a bold tropical fruit aroma, but ends up being very balanced. I found the flavor profile didn't do much for me in terms of complexity, but this could easily be a crushable session beer in the summer season.

Personal Beer Review: St-Ambroise Black IPA

Personal Beer Review: St-Ambroise Black IPA

The St-Ambroise Black IPA is different, but interesting and enjoyable. The profile is an unusual combination of IPA and classic Irish stout flavors that ends up working well.

Personal Beer Review: Postmark Stout

Personal Beer Review: Postmark Stout

The Postmark Stout is a sessionable stout with a classic flavor profile. The profile isn't particularly complex, and doesn't have any unique qualities to elevate it above other beers in the same style. With that said, I will happily enjoy this beer again.

Personal Beer Review: Base Camp S'more Stout

Personal Beer Review: Base Camp S’more Stout

The Base Camp S'more Stout is enjoyable, but doesn't stand out from the crowd for flavor complexity or intensity. Given the name of the beer, S'More Stout, I was anticipating big marshmallow, graham and chocolate flavors.
