Quick Hits..

...Perhaps not the most in-depth reviews, but the thoughts I recorded on the Untappd app upon drinking these brews tonight: 

My initial thoughts, in 140 characters or less: 

"For the 2nd week in a row, I may have started with a beer bigger than I wanted. Overpowering alcohol.  Missing the balance others rave about."  2 out of 5 stars. 

DC Brau's Penn Quarter Porter... 

My thoughts: 

"Strong, enjoyable coffee scent.  Nearly a stout without a stout's thickness.  Nutty, with a bit of spice on the front. 4 of 5 stars" 

Devil's Backbone Eight Point IPA

"Local bias.  A preferred IPA.  Good flavor but would benefit from increased thickness and more bite.  Smooth for a hoppy brew. 3 of 5 stars, but given how often I choose it... 4 stars may be more applicable."

And this is tonight's selection: 

I have repeatedly stated that Stone's Vanilla Porter is too rich, and I have repeatedly craved it to the point that I keep returning to it!

In Stone, I trust.
