Lindley Park Stout

Lindley Park is a neighborhood in Greensboro, North Carolina. The area is named after Quaker and local businessman John Van Lindley. In 1902, he donated 60 acres of land to be used as a recreation complex. The area had a man-made lake and amusement park. The lake and amusement park closed in 1917 and the town fathers set out to create a neighborhood with a park as its main element. Coincidentally, the community celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Another serendipitous discovery is that the name Lindley comes from the English text, Lind – meaning tree and Ley – meaning clearing. So, it seems Van Lindley lived up to his name by clearing some trees for the construction of the lake.

Maybe it’s just the age on this bottle (probably 2 years old) but the raspberry is non-existent. Well-polished stout with robust roasted coffee, baker’s chocolate but soft edges and a plush mouthfeel. A nice stout, wonder what it would have been like with some raspberry. I’ll give Lindley Park Stout 92 points.

Was Lindley Park better than this Raspberry Stout?

Devil’s Due & Hell on Wood by DuClaw

Hell on Wood
Tasting: March 3, 2015
Style: Barleywine
Beer # 708
ABV: 10.6%

A little awkward – funny bitterness and pervasive alcohol heat. The best of Hell on Wood by DuClaw is the caramel but it isn’t enough to carry this barleywine past 87 points.

Devils’ Due
Tasting: March 3, 2015
Style: Stout
Beer # 709
ABV: 11%

A blend of DuClaw Retribution (88 points) and Mother’s Milk Barleywine (no rating). Retribution is bourbon-barrel aged as is Devil’s Due. Smokey, somewhat sweet and loaded with bourbon influence. A little too boozy and a bit fizzy. Not a classic but a respectable 88 points.
