here we go:-
Mexican Cake BA Apple Brandy
This is a kind of accidental find--landed in Copenhagen on the Monday of CBC week--yes we all knew there's Blaeber Lambic and some other delicious bottles awaiting at this newly opened Bar called Himmeriget--by that "#diacetyl" beer maker of Evil Twin :)
There's a few of us sharing some really delicious beers during the 2 trips at the bar--we were fortunate to have found 3 different BA version of Mexican Cake--and this one--though thin in body according to how my palate like a stout to be--but that seeming"weakness" did not affect the overall deliciousness of this botlle--the apple brandy barrel did magical work to the beer--i have never felt this before--but i would say this is BEYOND what a stout would taste....墨西哥蛋糕黑啤是美国Westbrook酿坊指标性作品，除了原版，也有好些不同桶陈版本，在哥本哈根找到的稀有瓶子，同时喝到的几个不同版本中，这是最让人惊艳的一支，以个人对黑啤醇厚度要求来说显得有点薄，可一点也不影响整体表现，美味到一个点，已超越黑啤表现范畴。
Superstition Berry White
The first time i tasted "this thing" was early FEB this year at Mikkeller Bangkok--it was actually a very kind gesture from Jakob who shared a pour with me from his private bottle--it was a Strawberry White--i was at the bar with a KL geek friend who is more into the ipas and stouts--he had a sip--and just looked amazed. i also shared with a few friends i know at the bar--the feeling after first and subsequent sips--i still remember so vividly it's like it just happened minutes ago--im not going to describe how it taste or how awesome it taste--just 2 words--all of us who had a sip or more were just totally FXXKING DUMBFOUNDED! (how can this thing taste so awesome?)
*I was lucky to get a bottle of brewers reserve Berry White from Jeff himself during CBC this year--which i shared with the tasting group guys here in KL--that's second time tasting a White Series bottle--and the effect on everyone's face? same DUMB expression!
Tree House Haze
A 6 days FRESH can -shared by the good beertender at Himmeriget--for us who lives in ASIA who will never really get to drink fresh as fxxk IPAS/hoppy beers--need i say more?
"类果汁" IPA 是近期美国新兴的风格，简单说就是色泽味道更富有果汁特征，不是一味强调啤酒花苦味的"新分支"，在哥本哈根酒吧一位酒保请喝的，是装罐只有6天，从美国手提运送的超新鲜版本，鲜香好喝，是个人喝过至今最有印象的“印度淡啤”之一。
Totally did not see this coming--this is a gift bottle from Kristof during CBC week--shared this vintage with a Belgian beer friend here in KL--yes--the champagne-ness of the Gueuze has gone--it has mellowed down and turned into one of the most elegant Lambic i ever had--this one is really a gift from the beer god( if there's such a god somewhere up there)
Alesmith Hawaiian Speedway
Speedway is one of my personal Favs--as far as how a base stout should taste like is concern--But this version of Speedway is really another beast--the flavours and aroma is just right for a velvety stout--it's a stout that just nice as it is --never mind about barrel aging or not---i would like to get hold of another few if i could.
Speedway stout 是这家美国酿坊的代表作，不同变奏版本很多。这是用了夏威夷特产咖啡豆融合椰子香草，没有经过桶陈处理原版，无论是风味或醇香度都让人很享受，一些人以为经过桶陈熟成的黑啤层次风味一定更丰富好喝，这支啤酒很清楚的展现了什么叫原版就已很好喝，也胜过不少其他桶陈黑啤，期待再次喝到。
Anchorage Lovebuzz Saison
This is one saison i been seeking to drink for quite a while--but being in Asia obviously the chances of getting hold of a bottle is low--found this on tap in Copenhagen--and yes--totally did not dissapoint--it's a lovely beer.
Mikkeler X + Koppi imperial stout
Coffee / Cold Brew is a regular fixture during CBC--i still remember Mostra Coffee from last year's edition very well--their cold brew was amazing---and of course i like what Koppi from the homeland of Denmark is doing with their beans--this collab brew is really tasty--if you like coffee and stouts
Sahtipaja certainly is one of the brightest during CBC--they are so versatile with different style of brew--had this on tap in Singapore during small event--and most of us agreed that this is the most outstanding beer on that day.
Berliner Weiss 是酸中带点咸风味低度易喝啤酒，这款来自瑞典酿坊的版本用了百香果提味，口感非常清爽，酸咸香适中，任何时候喝都会喜欢。
The Bruery Smoking Wood Bourbon BA
To not select any of the weekday series Bottles probably sounds a little strange--considering how difficult it is for us here in Asia to get any of those Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday...But this brew is quite amazing--the smoke influence/the bourbon effects--it's really tasty.
SARA Fumare BA
Speaking of smoke--the smoky mushroom like influence from this sour is very interesting--it's definitely not the most complex sour out there--but interesting--and that's good enough--thanks to our geek friends from Singapore who brought this up to KL for a share.
Playing with Blend/ 玩点混酒
there's 2 amazing blend done during 2 different spur of the moment:-
Alesmith Hawaiian Speedway + The Breury Mocha Wednesday
this is really a very small blend--in almost 1 to 1 ratio--and it taste really awesome--better than drinking each alone--the coconut/coffee influence blended very well with the slightly boozy/vanilla-ish Mocha beer--it kinda felt like a perfect match of ALL STAR point guard and center forward--they each can play brilliantly on their own--but even better when combined.
This is more like a playful mix earlier this year at Mikkeller Bangkok with a friend--but it really turned out to be the best blend of 2016--a lambic-a sour brown & a desert stout--you could imagine :)
