    About to pour a Brouwerij Kees Smoked Pecan Porter here. The bottle was 6.20 for a 12 oz, so they must think it's pretty good, but it's only 6% ABV. Usually stouts and porters that low in ABV are pretty lack luster, but here goes.

    Watery mouth feel, good smokey flavor. Pretty good hop bitterness, almost more like a black IPA than a porter. It's not too bad, but definitely not a $6+ 12 ouncer. It would be good in 6 packs for $10.

    This one is different. I bought just one so I assume it was a few dollars.

    Not a typical Stout taste, has a bit of a twang to it like a sour beer.

    Not bad, I will drink it. :cheers:

    I'm guessing that twang is from the farmhouse part. Like a farmhouse ale or saison. I'm not really a fan of those.

    Being able to remember what you drank is the first step toward recovery.

    New one I just tried was Lyric ale from Orpheus brewery in Hotlanta. Hops from three continents
    saison yeast. More grapefruit taste than spicey hop. Tasty.

    Is "farmhouse" a style, brand, or just a description?

    Agreed! I was pretty boring for a long time thinking a Black & Tan was Bass and Guinness. Over time I've branched out, especially with IPAs and have found lots of great combos. I like the Centennial on its own (IPAs are my go to) but really like this combo.

    The only time I drink goose island is on the airplane.

    Tuesday I had a heiniken instead of a goose island ipa.

    The only goose island that I have had that was acceptable was their Oktoberfest (again on the airplane). It was mediocre at best. Goose island just likes to add hops. Like Sam Adams. And an Oktoberfest is a sweeter, malty beer with a good amount of alcohol and low hops.

    If someone is going to make a certain style of beer and describe it as such, then it should fit the style.

    I know I haven't tried many of their products, though I did enjoy their bourbon barrel stout. Based on your comments, I wonder what I am going to find when I open the first bottle of their IPA, which I just put into the cooler.

    Naughty Brewing - "I Think She Hung The Moon" - bottle conditioned ale. 8.5% Alc./Vol

    Not too shabby. Dark, dry and smoky. I'm thinking that I'll be picking up a few more in the near future.

    I didn't do anything new this evening but am enjoying the old just the same.

    Live vicariously through others once in awhile. What's considered "the old" this evening?
