Sacred Heartier by Conquest Brewing

Tasting: December 8, 2014
Style: Imperial IPA
Beer #: 663

Here are the last two remnants of the trade bonus beers in my fridge. This bomber-size bottle of Sacred Heartier delivers some nice rich caramel, hop resin and pineapple. For a 10.5% ABV beer, the alcohol heat is minimal. The overall body is on the surprisingly thin side. I’ll put Sacred Heartier at 87 points.

Empress Catherine by Short’s Brewing

Tasting: December 8, 2014
Style: Russian Imperial Stout
Beer #: 664

Light body and alcohol by volume (8%) for a Russian imperial stout. Empress Catherine does deliver some palatable roasted flavor, creamy coffee with some bitter nuttiness. A little too fizzy and that bitterness wears out its welcome fast. I’ll put Empress Catherine at 83 points.
