Ogre Fest 2014 Tap List with Descriptions
N’Ice Chouffe - A dark brown, fruity, lightly hoppy, sparkling, strong beer and is not pasteurized.
Anderson Valley Brother
Davids Double - New Commercial Description: Brewed in a cloistered nook of
remote Anderson Valley, this handcrafted Belgian-style strong ale may be the
closest you’ll ever get to heaven on earth. Made in very limited quantity, it is
malty, tangy and a little wild, it is sure to raise your spirits. We suffered to
brew this enormously complex beer so that you can enjoy it completely guilt
Original Commercial Description: Brewed at the Anderson Valley Brewing Company by David Keene, the owner of the legendary San Francisco beer-bar, Toronado, this double-style ale features the huge fruit flavors combined with yeastiness and spiciness that Belgian ales are known for. Brewed from malted barley, hops, water, demerara sugar, and special trappist yeast
Avery The Czar Imperial Stout - Behold the stunning crimson hues through the inky blackness. Inhale the noble Hallertau hops, spicy and floral. Savor the flavors redolent of English toffee, rich mocha, sweet molasses, candied currants and a hint of anise. We highly recommend cellaring additional bottles, as the Czar will continue to mature and become denser and more complex with age.
Avery Hog Heaven - This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficionados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.
Ballast Point Dorado Double IPA - On a quest to make delicious beers, our brewers have continually sought creative new ways to accentuate the delightfully aromatic and flavorful qualities of hops. Hopheads rejoice! Dorado Double IPA takes hops to a new level. Mash Hopping, First Wort Hopping, Kettle Hopping, and Dry Hopping create an award winning beer that embodies San Diego’s reputation for making world class IPAs. Our bottle Robust Series gives all beer lovers an opportunity to try our most rare beers, previously available only on draft at select tap houses. Enjoy! Get the Point! World Beer Cup 2006 Bronze Award Winner
Ballast Point Tongue Buckler Imperial Red Ale - Prepare to walk the plank to an Ale of overwhelming proportions. More hops & more malts than any land lubber can handle. After this experience...your tongue will be buckled. The I.B.U.’s (International Bitterness Units) are off the scale on this ale. Be forewarned, those with a timid palate, this is not a wee beer! Handcrafted in small batches for those sailing the seas in search of great ales.
Bells Expedition Stout - One of the earliest examples of the Russian Imperial Stout in the United States, Expedition Stout offers immensely complex flavors crafted specifically with vintage aging in mind, as its profile will continue to mature and develop over the years. A huge malt body is matched to a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruits, and other aromas. Intensely bitter in its early months, the flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages.
Third Coast Old Ale - A barley wine with deep amber color, the brandy of ales. This beer has vintage character and will mature in the bottle at cellar temperature for years
Blue Mountain Dark Hollow - Dark Hollow blends the miracle of two crafts--brewing and distillation--to create a work greater than the sum of its parts. An Imperial Stout has been aged in charred American oak bourbon barrels still dripping with uncut whiskey. For 100 days the young beer patiently breathes in and out of the wood, gaining complexity, character, and serious attitude. This ale is always bottle conditioned and can be enjoyed immediately upon its release from the brewery...or five years later, when you dust off the last vintage bottle from your cellar to share with good company.
Boulder Beer Killer Penguin Ale - Working on a winter seasonal, our brewers fell through the Looking Glass and found themselves staring right in the bloodshot eye of a penguin gone bad. Bigger, bolder and with even more attitude than Igloo Ale, the smooth, spiced, high gravity Killer Penguin Strong Ale puts the "hot" in winter warmer. Grains: British Dark Caramel Malt, U.S. 2-Row Barley. Hops: Nugget, Willamette, Cascade and Top-Secret Brewmaster's Spice
Brasserie Dubuisson SCALDIS NOEL - Scaldis NoŽl is golden brown and slightly hazy with a frothy beige head. The bouquet is impressive, with smooth alcohol, honey, and cracked pepper notes that all vie for attention. The flavor sinks deep into the tongue with toffee and honey sweetness, followed by raisin and plum fruitiness. Hops come to the surface as peppery spice and assertive bitterness. Overall, with its array of flavor, from the sweet and fruity to spicy and bitter, this beer is very well balanced. NoŽl finishes sweet, the beer’s big body and alcohol warmth heightening the toffee flavors that stretch to the end.
Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout - This is the famous Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, our award-winning rendition of the Imperial Stout style once made exclusively for Catherine the Great. We use three mashes to brew each batch of this beer, achieving a luscious deep dark chocolate flavor through a blend of specialty roasted malts. We brew it every year for the winter season. It is delicious when newly bottled, but also ages beautifully for years
Buckeye Nighty Night - New Winter release, ‘Nighty Night.’ 11.5% abv Belgian-style Dark Strong Ale. Made with French Munich, Aromatic, Amber and Pilsen malt. A touch of British Chocolate malt. Candi sugar also used in the brew. Styrian Goldings and Tettnanger used to hop the brew. Yeast was repitched from Christmas Girl. Spicy, semi-sweet. Deceptive. Warming. Look for ‘Nighty Night’ as early as Christmas Day. QR CODE will be active upon release. Cheers, Buckeye.
Clown Shoes Muffin Top - Belgian-style Tripel IPA intense flavors, reminiscent of candied fruits, mixed with American hops and sweet orange peel to create a unique take on a Belgian-Style ale. Disclaimer: No muffin tops were harmed in the production of this label.
Columbus Brewing Sohio Stout - No commercial description
Dogfish Head Noble Rot - A sort of Saison, fermented with Botrytis-infected Viognier and Pinot Gris grapes. This beer is brewed with Pils malt, organic Hard Red Winter Wheat malt, Warrior hops, Willamette hops, Liberty hops, Saison yeast and Botrytis wine must.
Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron - Big Brown Ale aged on palo santo wood from Paraguay. This beer is a 12% abv, highly roasty, and malty brown ale aged on the wood of the Palo Santo tree from Paraguay. Palo Santo means "holy tree" and it's wood has been used in South American wine-making communities. We were lucky enough to get our hands on 20 blocks of the super-dense wood and the wood was added to the ageing tank after fermentation
Epic Big Bad Baptist - It’s Big, it’s Bad, Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, with Coffee and Cocoa Nibs
Epic Brainless on Raspberries - Smells very fruity, belgian , sweet. Has an extreme berry flavor, a berry bust in the mouth! Nice belgian finish.
Epic Imperial Stout - Taste of roasted malt, molasses, peat, roasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and alcohol. Nice complexity of flavors
Flying Dog Horn Dog Barley Wine - Big malty flavors, including licorice and chocolate, are balanced with a moderate hop profile. Brewed with copious amounts of prized malts and flaked oats, the Barley Wine is so strong that it has to be aged for several months before we can bottle it. Like a fine wine, it will continue to improve with age up to 2 years after bottling (If kept cool).
Flying Dog Kujo - Deep black color with mousse-like head. Chocolate, black, and roasted malts. Vanilla and chocolate aroma and flavor. Flaked barley and oats for a creamy texture. Dry finish and slightly roasted coffee after taste. Made with Black Dog Coffee. 8.9% abv
Founders Breakfast Stout - You’ve got to love coffee to truly appreciate this phenomenal brew. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and sweetened imported chocolates, Sumatra and Kona coffee. We’re actually not sure if this is some type of coffee cake or a beer. Either way you can drink this ale with a fork. Breakfast Stout has an intense fresh roasted coffee nose toped with a cinnamon colored frothy head that seems to never fade and makes you wish breakfast could last forever.
Founders Imperial Stout - A fine companion to end a meal or relax in front of the hearth with, this robust ale will cellar well for years. Brewed with ten varieties of malted barley this stout is extremely smooth, complex and rich in body. We recommend serving at cellar temperature. Sit back and enjoy its richness and complexity, you’re about to drink the ultimate winter warmer.
Full Pint Tri-PA - Fruity malts and hops--more on the malty side of things with various stone fruits and caramel coming through, as well as some sweet cereals. Medium bodied, a bit boozy, gentle carbonation, moderate bitterness, and muted finish.
Goose Island Lolita - You might think this is a Russian style girly beer (a little Nabokov for you), but instead it is a very sophisticated Raspberry Belgian Ale. Fermented with brettanomyces (the little guys who give us that tart zing) and fresh raspberries, this brew is bright yet deep with spices and edges of the fruits natural tart quality to give it a white wine kind of finish.
Great Divide Old Ruffian - Old Ruffian is a hefty, hop-forward Barley Wine. Seemingly mellow at first sniff, with its subtle fruit aromas and complex caramel sweetness, this deep mahogany-hued ale quickly shows its true character marked by bold hop flavors and massive hop bitterness. Old Ruffian’s rich, slightly creamy, caramel malt mouthfeel balances its grapefruit, pine, and floral hop flavors, working wonders on your palate.
Great Divide Hibernation Ale - English-style Old Ale. Hibernation Ale is Colorado’s original strong ale -- it has been Great Divide’s winter seasonal each year since 1995. Hibernation’s massive flavors are so intense that it requires over three months of aging each year. This lengthy aging process gives Hibernation its revered malty richness, complex hop profile and hearty warming character, which is perfect right out of the bottle or cellared for longer periods of time.
ESPRESSO OAK AGED YETI IMPERIAL STOUT - A generous infusion of Denver’s own Pablo’s espresso adds yet another layer of complexity to this beer, combining with the vanilla oak character, intense roasty maltiness and bold hop profile to create a whole new breed of mythical creature. It’s official: You can now have Yeti with breakfast.
Great Lakes Blackout Stout - A Russian Imperial Stout with a hearty malt body and bold hop flavor. Named after the infamous "Blackout of 2003" that left the northeastern United States in complete darkness, but resulted in old-fashioned neighborhood porch parties and fun
Green Flash Green Bullet - A full-bodied Triple IPA, Green Bullet combines New Zealand grown Pacific Gem and Green Bullet hops. Significant pine and citrus hoppiness hit the palate at first sip, accentuated by tropical notes of mango and pineapple, ending with a moderately aggressive, bitter finish.
Heavy Seas Siren Noire - This year’s Siren Noire Imperial Chocolate Stout has been revamped. We’ve aged it for three weeks in bourbon barrels, which gives the beer darker notes of raisin and fig. We’ve also tripled the amount of chocolate nibs and added vanilla bean. A mix of dark malts gives Siren Noire a well-rounded body that is decidedly chocolatey—but without being extraordinarily sweet. Mt. Hood hops contribute a fruity hop profile, with notes of black currant
HeBrew / Cathedral Square St. Lenny’s - Belgian Style Double Rye India Pale Ale - The Immaculate Collaboration with Cathedral Square.
Hoppin Frog Cleveland Crusher - Based on our BORIS The Crusher Oatmeal-Imperial Stout, but made with Belgian chocolate malt instead of roasted barley
Jackie-Os Dark Apparition - This hauntingly good brew in your hand is rife with dark complexities. Eleven malts were used to create deep flavors of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and molasses. A hint of bitterness and herbal character from carefully selected American hops help support the monolithic maltiness of Dark Apparition. A truly decadent brew that is intended to be poured into your favorite snifter and given time to warm up from its dark and cold resting place. Be aware when in the presence of Dark Apparition ’cause this ghost is a creeper.
Innis & Gunn Canadian Cherrywood Finish - This limited bottling of Innis and Gunn has been matured over Canadian Black Cherrywood and then finished with the addition of maple syrup. To our knowledge, this is the first time that Cherrywood has been used to mature a beer. The result is a really full bodied Scottish ale, with a rich tasting finish. Brewed using three malt varieties, roasted barley, wheat and Super Styrian and Goldings hops, Canadian Cherrywood Aged is matured for 49 days over lightly-toasted black cherrywood chips. Maple syrup is added post maturation when the beer is in cold conditioning to add a subtly sweet, toasty twist. In another nod to its Canadian fanbase, Innis & Gunn has featured artwork by Canadian artist Tatiana O’Donnell on the carton. Her painting ‘Forest Spectrum’ won Innis & Gunn’s annual art competition: a collaboration with the Society of Canadian Artists.
Kuhnhenn White Devil - Our Imperial White Ale is a cloudy straw color, and has a zesty citrus nose and a medium sweet aroma. It is refreshingly crisp with a bit of a wheat flavor. With medium hop bitterness, this is a delight-ful brew for any season. Formerly 9.5%
Lagunitas Olde GnarlyWine - The Annual Release of our BarleyWine Style Ale is Dated and Built to Last. Flavors Evolve as Hop Bitterness Yields to Crazy Caramel and Rich Toffee Flavors.
Left Hand Oak Aged Widdershins - Thanks for purchasing another offering in our Big Mo’ Series. Widdershins, our counterclockwise biennial barleywine aged in oak casks reveals fruity notes of orange and apricot upon a foundation of oak, garlanded with earthy hoppiness. Our answer to waning daylight and frigid temperatures can be enjoyed immediately or saved in your cellar for a snowy day. Cheers! Bottle Conditioned
Doc’s Scotch Ale - Millersburg Brewing Company -The second release in Millersburg Brewing Company’s Imperial Series. This brew was inspired by Dr. John Duncan of Scottish descent. This gentleman graduated in 1904 from The Ohio State University, where he also played football. He returned home to become the beloved resident doctor of Killbuck, for over 50 years. His payments included pies and spirits. He is the Great-Grandfather of Bill Baker, Co-Owner of The Millersburg Brewing Company. Doc’s pours a light copper color with a slight tan head. Sweet aromas of malt, caramel and earthy-smoke/roastiness, with a slight fruity character. Clocking in at 9% ABV this Scotch ale has legs to stand on, with a slight warming and medium dry finish. The 37 IBU’s are mellowed by the higher finishing gravity of the ale, with little to no hop bitterness detectable in the nose or finish. Light-bodied with smooth alcohol warmth,, balances out this wee heavy-style scotch ale. We are sure Doc would have loved the smooth warmth and malty flavors of this Scotch Ale, especially on a cool Fall or Winter evening. Stop in and check out the legs on this Scotch Ale and toast one for Doc, before it is gone!
North Coast Old Stock Ale - As a continuation of North Coast Brewing Co.’s commitment to quality, our Old Stock Ale is crafted in the tradition of our critically acclaimed Pranqster Belgian Style Golden Ale and Old Rasputin Imperial Stout. It’s brewed with classic floor-malted Maris Otter Pale Malt and Fuggles Hops imported from England, so it’s a beer to be served proudly. Like a fine wine, North Coast’s Old Stock Ale is intended to be laid down. With an original gravity of over 1100 and a generous hopping rate, Old Stock Ale is well-designed to round-out and mellow with age. North Coast Brewing Co. Old Stock Ale is a vintage dated ale. We produce a small quantity each year and it remains available from release date until our stock is depleted.
Ommegang Adoration - Ale brewed with Spices: Coriander, Cardamon, Mace, Grains of Paradise, Sweet Orange Peel. Adoration is a traditional winter ale, brewed in the Belgian manner, but with the twist of unusual spicing. Sip it on a winter eve sitting before a fire. You’ll understand why we couldn’t name it anything else.
Oskar Blues Ten FIDY - This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.
Oskar Blues G’Knight Imperial Red - Our “Velvet M-80” is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ale with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors. G’Knight sports a surprisingly sensuous finish for a beer of its size (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs). It’s brewed in tribute to a fellow Colorado craft beer pioneer and Vietnam vet who died fighting a 2002 wild fire outside of our Lyons hometown. For all the details behind this tribute follow this link to www.N3978Y.com. G’Mornin’. G’Day. G’Knight
Thirsty Dog / Portside Evil Monk - Thirsty Dog & Portside: EVIL MONK, a Bourbon Barrel Aged Black Belgian Tripel (11% ABV) for Cleveland Beer Week 2013
Rivertown Imperial Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Stout - Aroma of roasted and toasted malts, oats, brown sugar, and raisins. Flavor of roasted and toasted malts, oats, dark and milk chocolate, tobacco, raisins, and mellow spice.
Rogue Double Chocolate Stout - Double Chocolate Stout is an evolution of Rogue Chocolate Stout, which is flavored with imported Dutch bittersweet chocolate. In 2010, Double Chocolate Stour received a Gold Medal at the World Beer Championships
Rogue Old Crustacean Barleywine - An unfiltered and unrefined Barleywine. Intense, robust, malty and dark. The cognac of beers. A huge beer in a little bottle, this is a beer designed for sipping. Old Crustacean is brewed with eight ingredients, Great Western Harrington, Klages, Hugh Baird Carastan and Munich Malts, Chinook and Centennial Hops, free-range coastal water and PacMan yeast. Old Crustacean is best when aged for one year.
Rogue Imperial Stout - Deserving the title "Emperor of Ales" (unlike the bourgeois "King of Beers"), Imperial is the strongest and fullest of all stouts. Imperials originally were brewed with large quantities of hops and a high alcohol content to withstand long, unrefrigerated journeys. Rogue Imperial Stout, considered the high end of stouts, is made of 2-row Great Western Harrington & Klages, Hugh Baird XLT-80, Black, Munich and Chocolate Malts; Willamette, Cascade and Chinook hops; rolled oats; and two secret ingredients. Unfiltered and unfined, Imperial Stout is best when aged for one year. Imperial Stout is available in a new 12-ounce bottle (replacing the older 7-ounce XS-line package) and on draft.
Rogue Morimoto Soba Ale - The delicate flavor of our roasted Soba brings a nutty finish to this light and refreshing ale. A perfect accompaniment to lighter cuisine. 8 Ingredients: Malts: Roasted Soba, Harrington, Metcalf, Munich & C-15. Hops: Crystal. Yeast & Water: Rogue’s Pacman Yeast & Free Range Coas tal Water.
Sierra Nevada Bigfoot - Gold Medal Winner, Great American Beer Festival (Ales: Brown, Bitter and Pale 1987, Barleywine 1988,1992,1995). Sierra Nevada Bigfoot is an award winning example of the English Barley Wine style. It boasts a dense, fruity bouquet; an extremely rich, intense, bittersweet palate; and a deep, reddish-brown color. This ale is superbly balanced between an almost overpowering maltiness and a wonderfully bittersweet hoppiness.
Sierra Nevada Ovila Quad - A collaboration between Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and the monks at the Abbey of New Clairvaux, Ovila Abbey Quad brings the centuries-old monastery brewing tradition to America. Ovila Abbey Quad is rich and complex with layers of flavor including notes of intense dark fruits, and caramel-like maltiness. Rich and complex, this ale should be shared among friends in the true spirit of the season. A portion of the proceeds from this ale goes toward the restoration of the historic Santa Maria de Ovila chapter house on the grounds of the Abbey of New Clairvaux. This medieval building stood for nearly eight centuries in Spain. William Randolph Hearst purchased the monastery in 1931 and planned to use the stones for a castle even grander than his famous San Simeon. Although Hearst’s plans crumbled, these historic stones will rise again in a California Cistercian abbey.
Smuttynose Barleywine Style Ale - Our Barleywine Style Ale is rich & malty with hints of fruity esters & a well-hopped finish. Enjoy this hearty ale with fresh fruit & rich cheese on a cold, winter’s night, or lay it up & savor it with a friend for a special summer treat.
Sixpoint Hi-Res - Hi-Res. Zoom on, zoom in, hop out. This beer goes up to eleven. Where the telescope ends, the microscope begins. Which of the two has the grander view?
Southern Tier Choklat - “the ancients called it ‘food for the gods’“ The Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the Maya, unfolds a complex web of mystery around a beverage known as xocoatl (ch-co-atle). At Southern Tier, we’re not surprised that hieroglyphs of the ancient Maya depict chocolate being poured for rulers and gods. Even through the many voyages of Columbus, the mystical bean remained nothing more than a strange currency of the native peoples. Moving through centuries, the circular journey of cacao has been realized in our brewing house, encompassing the complexity of the darkest, bitter-sweet candy together with the original frothy cold beverage of the ancient Maya to bring to you our Blackwater Series Choklat Stout. We have combined the finest ingredients to tempt your senses & renew the power & interrelation of history in every bottle.
Southern Tier Oak Aged Back Burner - “Evanscent Oak Character” Long ago, British farmhouse brewers made special ales using the first runnings of the mash. These beers, now called barley wine, are brewed in the tradition of days past. At Southern Tier this long awaited brew is placed on the back burner until the start of the new year. Back Burner Barley Wine is a celebration of things to come and things remembered. It’s conceived in three small batches, using voluminous amounts of barley and hops. The process starts early in the morning and ends late into the night. We hope this rare brew reignites your spirit for another trip around the sun.
Stone Old Guardian Belgo-Barley Wine - When our illustrious brewing team spiked a few barrels of the Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine with our Belgian yeast strain last year, we absolutely loved it. So much, in fact, that we knew we needed an excuse to make more. So, in our unending quest to constantly challenge the status quo (even our own), we came up with Odd Beers for Odd Years, a program to release odd beers – e.g. Stone Old Guardian BELGO Barley Wine – in odd years (2011, 2013, 2015…). It was met with a bit of resistance (to say the least) since we weren’t originally offering the traditional Old Guardian alongside it, but we’ve mended our ways and decided to make both. You’re welcome.
Stone Imperial Russian Stout - "There’s no question that Stone Imperial Stout is revered among enthusiasts," states Stone CEO Greg Koch. "I know, because I’m one of ’em and I can hardly wait for it to come out each year!" Some may think that a late Spring release for a special brew of this sort is an odd time for it to come out onto the market. Koch justifies this with the rationalization "What better than a warm time of year to come out with a brew that tastes great as it warms up!" That’s because "ice cold" is certainly not the appropriate way to serve the beer. Nearly without exception, the darker, richer and more alcoholic a brew is, the warmer the serving temperature should be. The Stone Imperial Stout label describes the brew as being "intensely aromatic (notes of anise, black currants, coffee, roastiness and alcohol) and heavy on the palate...expect this mysterious brew to pour like used motor oil and taste even heavier! Serve at 55 degrees.
Stone Matt’s "Burning Rosids" Imperial Cherry Wood Smoked Saison - Life is
extraordinarily precious, joyous...and fragile. At Stone, we recently were
reminded of this when we lost our dear friend and coworker, Matt Courtright. We
felt that there was no better way to share with the world what an extraordinary
person he was than by brewing this beer he created. Rather than a somber
momento, please think of this as a celebration of Matt. We do. We can’t
contemplate it any other way. Matt was by no means a shrinking violet. Quite the
contrary. He was exuberant, courageous, outwardly positive, and the type of
stalwart friend everybody who knew him was happy to have in their corner. Matt’s
smile and voluminous laugh were infectious mainstays around the brewery. He was
larger than life in every way...and he was without a doubt an incredible brewer.
Everyone at Stone recognized Matt’s prowess and passion for brewing. He loved to explore what-ifs and why-nots. He crafted the beer you hold in your hands, which he conceived with Stone friend and colleague, Brian Bishop. Burning Rosids is a Belgian-style saison incorporating a unique ingredient-cherrywood smoked malt (the name references the rosid plant family from which cherry trees hail).
Brian and Matt’s many devoting brewing comrades here at Stone were proud to hoist this mash paddles and brew this recipe for him as a symbolic gesture of how much he meant to everyone and how immensely he is missed. When you enjoy this very special beer, please join all of us in raising your glass in Matt’s memory and to everything he so passionately stood for: contributing and caring for others, passion and skill for his art, and laugther. Lots of laughter. Among the list of things he held dear was GoDesignInc.org, a charity committed to fulfilling the architectural needs of developing communities around the world, and we are proudly contributing funds earned through the sale of this beer to this worthy organization in Matt’s honor. Enjoy, and please remember that life and those we hold dear are precious gifts to be cherised every day.
