    We had the heat index hit 121 here today according to my weather station.

    Definitely going light on tonight's beer.

    Founders Más Agave



    Poured a copper gold into a Shaker with a large golden head. Smells of lime, agave, and malt. Smells like a margarita! Tastes just like a malty margarita! Lots of lime, tequila, a little salt, and malt. Perfect brew for this hot weather!

    Wrapping up the week with a brew from Country Boy Brewing in Gerogetown, KY that a friend was nice enough to bring up when we met up to swap truck parts.

    I can get Country Boy local at Jungle Jim's but not this one.

    This one is their Coconut Hefe.



    Poured a hazy, bright gold into a Shaker with a moderate white head. I get a good bit of lemon, wheat, and malt in the smell. Taste is a lot of the same with only a little coconut. Light-medium bodied with a 4.3% ABV. A decent drinking brew for a hot day. Could stand to punch up the coconut a bit more but, that seems to be a problem with most coconut brews.

    Chilling tonight with another 10w-40 from Hi-Wire. This time it's their Palo Santo 10w-40.



    Imperial Stout brewed with coffee, chocolate, vanilla and lactose. Aged on Palo Santo wood.
    Allowed to warm a bit. Poured black into a Snifter with a moderate sized, khaki colored head. Smells of cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, and a slight lactose/vanilla. Tastes of chocolate, slightly bitter coffee, lactose, and has a slight woody note underneath. Smooth and heavy bodied with an 8% ABV. Nice brew that goes quite well with a steak!

    Enjoying a new Clown Shoes brew tonight. This is their The Exercising of Baxter Imperial Stout.



    Ingredients: Black, oat, and chocolate malts, lactose, aged in rum and port barrels

    For years we’ve been banishing evil through our “Exorcism” series. But we decided that for the next beer in the series, what Baxter really needs is some exercise. The Exercising of Baxter is an American Imperial Stout aged in Rum and Port barrels. Notes of dark chocolate and aged fruit blend with rich flavors of roasted malt.
    Poured black into a Snifter with a medium sized, light brown head. Allowed to warm some. Has a very nice scent of cocoa, roasted malt, oak, dark fruit, and a touch of rum. The taste is cocoa, lactose, brown sugar, oak, a little port, and a little rum booziness. Heavy bodied with a matching 11% ABV. Another great brew from Clown Shoes!

    It's been a long day and I'm just now finally getting to actually kick back.

    And I'm going to kick back with the 2019 edition of Stone's w00tstout!



    This massive imperial stout has been a favorite among our fans (and us) since its inception in 2013. As if the pecans, wheat and flaked rye weren't enough, we went ahead and aged 1/4th of this beer in bourbon barrels. The result is a whopping, intense, superhero of a beer with profound complexity that makes it ideal for cellaring... if you can wait that long.

    ABV: 11.5%

    Special Ingredients: Pecans, wheat & flaked rye
    Poured deep black into a Snifter with a medium sized, dark brown head. Allowed to warm a little. Has a rich aroma of chocolate, pecans, oak, roasted malt, and a bit of bourbon. All of the smells come through in the flavor quite nicely maybe with a touch of coffee added. Body is fairly heavy but with a little bit of carbonation. Has a nice 11% ABV. Once again, w00tstout does not disappoint!

    Opening up a 4 pack I picked up not too long ago. It's a collaboration pack to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Sun King Brewing out of Indy. Haven't had anything from Sun King before.



    https://www.indystar.com/story/enter...rs/1100740001/

    All "10-4 Good Buddy" beer is being brewed and canned in Indianapolis. About 8,400 four-packs will be available for purchase.

    Each package will include one 16-ounce can of:

    Maximum Overdrive, a collaboration with 3 Floyds Brewing. This Baltic porter follows a teamwork tradition that began in 2011 with 3 Kings American Pale Ale, a beer Sun King and 3 Floyds made together to raise awareness of the companies' lobbying efforts to raise the number of barrels an Indiana brewery is allowed to produce while operating a tasting room or brewpub. "We’ve changed multiple laws with 3 Floyds," Robinson said. Munster-based 3 Floyds, founded in 1996, produces more than 60,000 barrels of beer per year.

    Hoppiness Jones, a collaboration with Cincinnati-based Rhinegeist. This IPA was aged in tequila and pinot noir barrels, and infused with hibiscus. Rhinegeist's head brewer, Jim Matt, was one of Sun King's first 20 employees before he moved to Cincinnati. "Dave and I met the founders of Rhinegeist, who said, 'We’re starting a brewery in Cincinnati,' " Robinson said. "We asked, 'Who’s your brewer?' 'I don’t know.' 'You need to meet our friend, Jim.' " Rhinegeist, founded in 2013, produced 100,000 barrels of beer in 2018.

    Highway Queen, a collaboration with Tampa-based Cigar City Brewing. This sour golden ale featuring Zinfandel grapes, sour cherries, and raspberries was aged on oak. Joe Burns, Sun King's vice president of sales, is an Indiana University alum who previously worked as Cigar City's national sales manager. Cigar City, founded in 2007, produces 140,000 barrels of beer per year.

    Collabergé, a collaboration with Austin Beerworks. This imperial brut IPA is described by Colt as being "extremely dry (with) not a lot of residual sweetness." The Collabergé name is a riff on a cologne favored by Elvis Presley: Brut by Fabergé. Robinson described the managers of Sun King and Austin Beerworks as being kindred spirits. "They started a few years after us," Robinson said, "but they grew pretty rapidly and have the same focus on quality and they self-distribute. We self-distributed for a long period of time." Texas-based Austin Beerworks, founded in 2011, produces more than 20,000 barrels of beer per year.
    Going to start out with Maximum Overdrive.

    Poured very deep brown into a Shaker with a medium copper-brown head. The nose is a bit faint on this but I get a little chocolate, roasted malts, and some floral hops. Flavor of semi-sweet cocoa, roasted grain, and light hop bitterness. Body is medium-thin and a 7% ABV. Far hoppier than I expected for a Baltic Porter. Interesting... I don't dislike it but, wouldn't drink it regularly. Worth a try for something different.

    Going to dig into Hoppiness Jones from the collab pack next!

    Poured deep amber into a Shaker with a small, off white head. Very distinct pinot noir and hibiscus smell with a hint of tequila along with some biscuity malts and floral hops. Citrus hop flavors accompanied by a little biscuit malt and pinot noir. Moderately bitter but it's short lived. Taste is a bit different from the smell. Medium bodied with an 8% ABV. More bitter than I typically prefer but, strangely drinkable.

    A late review but it's been a long day. Finally getting to unwind and doing so with a fine Clown Shoes brew! This time it's their Loonidragon 2019 Russian Imperial Stout.



    Russian Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels 11%
    Available: May 2019


    Ingredients: All-natural Coconut Flavor

    When the Unidragons ranged far north, they took on an altogether different nature. They demurred, they settled down and made of all things: nests! But one look in their eyes will tell you that beastly flame still rages within. Loonidragon is a Russian Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon Barrels, featuring the dark malt flavors and full-bodied richness association with our Unidragon series. Additions of all-natural coconut flavor provides for a sweet and smooth unique profile.

    Formats: 22oz bottle, 1/6bbl keg

    Distribution: National
    Poured pitch black into a Snifter with a small, dark brown head. Allowed to warm some. Smells of coffee, roasted malt, oak, chocolate, and some alcohol. Flavor is coffee and charred oak which give it a mellow bitterness, along with roasted malts and chocolate. The coconut comes through just enough in the flavor to let you know it's there but not enough to make this an official coconut flavored beer. Body is heavy to match the 11% ABV. As with most every Clown Shoes brew, I like it!

    Going local while watching tonight's episode of Live PD.

    Another brew from Streetside. This one came highly recommended by a friend who got me a growler of it on their canning day yesterday.

    This is their Return Of The Mac Coffee Blonde.



    Dripping in aromatics of coconut, honey, and fresh vanilla, blended together in a fresh cup of your favorite morning coffee, this coffee blonde showcases the best of beer and coffee with a silky body and luscious caramel creme flavors. Undercurrents of coconut cream pie and toasted pie crust make this a 5% banger not to be trifled with.
    I've had coffee stouts and I've had blonde stouts but not a blond coffee stout.

    Poured dark gold into a Shaker with a medium sized, white head. Very rich roast coffee scent with a bit of caramel and vanilla. Smells really good! The flavor is medium roast coffee, vanilla, coconut, and malt. Body is light-medium and this comes in at 5.5% ABV. A very tasty brew! Good thing I've got a whole growler of this!
