    If I'm being honest with myself, it was a bit malty. Not quite as good as rest of Alchemist beers. —by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • Chimay Blue

    Before we get to the main event (Vermont week), let's reflect on the Process. Prior to last week, I was giddy about the future. Then we traded Noel for some leftover shares of Broadcast.com and Embiid danced poorly at a Meek Mil concert with a torn meniscus and Okafor is still playing the worst D in the NBA and Simmons got swallowed up in a sink hole in Florida and may play next year if we find him. But yet I have hope. Imagine scoring 2 lottery picks (come on Lakers be good) and trotting outa Philly Reverse Death Lineup of very tall skill players like Embiid, Sakic, Simmons, Lonzo Ball (best name ever) & Malik Monk. Oh yeah, introducing ur 2021 NBA Champions..... —by Anthony Ciavarelli

    Malt bomb! Can't believe this beer won FOB once upon a time. Feels like a million years ago. The slog to Vermont week continues with Chimay. Hang in there liver - it will all be worth it. I promise! —by Anthony Ciavarelli

    Mysterium has been dethroned as the all time clunker of FOB! Long live the new benchmark for bad beer! —by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • Rodenbach Grand Cru

    Spring allergies in February? I'm down with it as long as I can ride a bike in shorts and start spring yard work and begin looking forward to the year that the Phillies become relevant again (I told my kids to enjoy the golden era while it lasted said the old dude). Ah, where was I? Right, Rodenbach - strong enough to taste thru ur worst spring allergies. Already trademarked that one Rodenbach - send the licensing fees to Media. —by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • Ommegang Rosetta

    Like all sourish beers, the first half is great and the second half is a slog. Maybe that is why all sours seem to be sold in 11.2 ounce bottles. The last .8 of a sour must be some of the worst swill in the world.—by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • Enjoy By 2.15 Coffee Chocolate

    Using Enjoy By as a base, I think I could drink anything. How about a shot of hydrochloric acid AG? Sure, why not, let me just chase it with an Enjoy By! Yum, I give it an 8.5. 1/2 point off for eroding my stomach lining...—by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • Heady Topper

    Not much to say that hasn't been said before. Docked 1/2 a point bc Heady occasionally does not rise to its own greatness every time. Probably too harsh to say it is a bit inconsistent but it's true. Guess it isn't easy being a supremely awesome beer every single day. —by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • Big Black Voodoo Daddy

    Things that don't age well: raw bars, the comedic stylings of Jeff Foxworthy, the ability to recover from a hangover, Charles Oakley, SEPTA trains within a year, M. Night Shyamalan's movie making ability, receding hairlines, open-mindedness, Elvis, and Big Black Voodoo Daddy. —by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • Conshy Type A

    The maker of great, obscure beers (who remembers Conshy Doll's Eye beer? Creepy!!! It's like they stuck a piece of the bride of Chucky in there and called it what is was!) finally makes a good IPA. Huzzah!!! —by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • Troeg's Chocolate Stout

    Good beer but for some reason I'm always a little bit disappointed by a chocolate stout. I like chocolate and I like beer so this should be a 10 every time, right? Wrong. Oh well, still tasty. —by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • La Trappe Quad

    I try. I really try to like Belgians but more often than not I'm struggling to finish the beer. So glad there is not an entire category dedicated to Belgians this year. Can't believe this won. Coincidence that a Belgian beer lover set up the code behind the scores here? Hmmmmm......—by Anthony Ciavarelli

  • 2SP Bellcracker

    I seem to be in the minority here but I liked it. Every time I thought of the beer I thought of crackers and then saltines and then I got more thirsty. Marketing genius? I'm gonna name a beer Hot & Humid While Doing Yardwork IPA and it will sell like crazy.... —by Anthony Ciavarelli
