The second weekend
.26 beers. And with that, it is 47 beers in total this time.So here, on day two of the beer and whiskey festival, we had lovely Nadia with us.
So I'm going to add her ratings as well in this entry. ***Those beers that we didn't want to rate again since we've tried too many times already (or rated the first day already) have only Nadia's ratingsQuite interesting to see how our taste is at times much the same and other times diverse a lot.
And as I said, remember, I write exactly what comes to mind when i taste a beer. I am not a pro.

------My favorite bartender at O.T. Was serving with a smile and knowledge :)
Always suggesting the best beers :)He asked me "Do you want a nice bitter IPA? Or you want one OH MY FUCKING GOD?!"
Guess what I chose ;)EPIC Imperial IPABarley-wine type of sweetness.
Grassy bitterness that makes your toes curl up.
Nice balanced hops.
Full and round. Amazing beerA:5

Someone moved and spoiled the perfect happy picture.

***-------Djævlebryg Dark BeastNice spicy bitter
. Quite friendly. Maybe too much carbonation for my taste? Or maybe I like it on botle better.A:4
-------Djævlebryg NekronFreaking amazing slice of Heaven.
And orgy of malts. Almonds and winter breeze through naked trees.
You can taste the frozen bark on a sunny winter day.(that's what came through my head stop making that face)A:5
-------Ölvisholt MóriPleasant fruity red ale with some nice spices.
I use to love this beer and rate it higher.
But, 1 I am WAY over red ales. And 2 I have been spoiled with extravagant beers and can not say that this is a golden one for "my" palate anymore.
However it is still a really nice red ale. We all agreed :)A:3,5
Monks Red Rauk Stout
N:5!!!***Nadia had the same reaction like mine with this one :)(see B&W Festival day I)------Det Lille Bryggeri Double Chili Lakrids AleWell if you do not like licorice then you will miss a trip. Because this beer is an adventure. It starts with dark chocolate biter smoothness. Then slowly yet increasingly a taste of subtle sweet licorice-candy arrives as middle taste and fills up your soul. Finishing up with a nice hot chilly burn and a nutty after taste. Yummy.
N:2(Someone didn't like licorice
in my company though hehe)-------Det Lille Bryggeri Celebration Ale #8 Hot Imperial StoutYet another poem.
Muddy, coffee, heavy, almondy, balanced, with a good chilly finish. Superb!!A:5
-------Bravo to the Danes. One more brewery to steal my heart!
Maybe I should travel to Denmark soon? :DToo cool for beer school :p
(or "fringe gang"
)Djævlebryg Son of NekronNutty pleasant sweet goodness.A:4
-------Then this really nice guy gave us to try a batch of SON that was over carbonated so they wouldn't sell it
It was not that bad, but yeah too much carbonation ...

Mokah - Southern Tier Brewing Company
-------Southern Tier ChoklatChocolate goodness, smooth and dreamy like an autumn night.A:4,5H:4,5N:4,8-------Mohawk Blizzard Imperial PorterNice typical pleasant porter.A:4H:4,5N:4,2-------This is mister magic!!!
