Nogne Dark Horizon

Fantastic Imperial Stout. I love the standard Nogne Imperial Stout on draft but was let down by the bottled version – this was excellent.

Samuel Adams Longshot Double IPA

Fantastic hops in this – one of the few double IPAs that has the hops to match the extra strength.

Yona Yona 2005 Barley Wine

Onlt 550 bottles of this we ever made. Claims a place as one of the few barley wines I like.

Samuel Adams Utopias 2007

Samuel Adams Utopias 2007

There are no adequate words to describe this beer. For the first 10 minutes all I could do was smell it. It has the complexity of a whisky but without having any of the bad qualities of the recent fad of whisky aged beers. It has the taste of heaven. Seriously. This is one of the best taste sensations I have ever had in my life – I never wanted it to end. 27%. Only 12000 bottles made. 100$ a bottle. Retails for about 15,000 yen a bottle in Japan.

It’s worth it.
