    Default Uncanny Brew

    Our very own Uncanny seems to be something of a brew master. He gave me three bottles of his first batch to try, and I gotta say it's a home run!



    Never mind the label on the bottle; that's not what's in the glass. Greg re-used bottles from store bought beer.

    My first taste said this was something like Shiner Bock or Zeigenbock Amber. But there was a different mouth feel. Almost a creaminess to it. Eventually I picked up on a bit of a coffee flavor, and a slight bitterness in the aftertaste.Not an off-putting bitter, but noticeable. It was cold and refreshing and not stout as it appears. Delicious!

    It turns out that Starbucks was one of the ingredients.

    Thanks for the samples Greg!

    Sounds awesome, I'd drink a few with y'all. I like some darker beers but stouts take some getting used to for me. This one sounds right down my alley. Thanks for sharing. I keep threatening I'm gonna take up the home brew pot but never have yet.

    this one sounds like a home run!!

    tried it room temp yet?? or just below room temp, as you know a warmer dark beer taste completely different that a cold dark beer, i think the deeper tones (e.g. coffee, nutty or toast) reveal themselves more. i also think its creamier/silkier when not served frigid.

    Im not really a fan of warm beer (room temp), but being introduced the the realm of dark beers just below room temp (55-60 F) has changed my point of thinking.

    with that I am not a fan of wheat beers or real estery beers (blue moon being the most popular)..personal preference

    Only had three to try. Had 'em well chilled in a frosty glass. If someone provides more samples, I would be glad to opine on different temps.

    I mean..... I'd volunteer to sample a "few". Just to help out.

    If that's similar to Shiner Bock I'm IN.
