Beerista!

Good news! Beerista, Squatters new esspresso stout has been released early. It's available right now at Squatters bottle shop for $5.

Also, the Bayou has received a limited amount of Deschutes' Dissadent. This a Wild Ale that has nice, tart fruity notes. I haven't had this newest release. No idea if it will be in liquor stores. Keep checking back.

Rio's Romp'in Rye is available as well. This is a new release from Epic. It's named after it's creator, assistant brewer Riordan "Rio" Connelly. It's the only high gravity Rye being made in the State.
As always, call first!!!

CHEERS!

I would definitely recommend calling Squatters first as I had lunch there today and no Beerista available as of then :(

Douglas said...

It's available now. As of four PM.

Anybody been by the Bayou to see if Dissident is available? I don't see it on their beer listing page yet. Maybe they just won't list it with the limited amount they got?

Mikey said...

@ Shead. Yes it is at the Bayou and at the Beerhive.

shead said...

Thanks Mikey! I'll be there tonight :)

kent said...

Shane let me know how it is. I'm tempted to run down tonight and try one out.

Any comments on the Beerista yet?

Rio's Rye is pretty damned good. I am going to pick up a few new bottles this next week. My wife, who isn't much of a beer drinker, is rather fond of Rio's Rye as well.

Had The Dissident at the Beerhive yesterday. I liked it a lot. I found it very similar to Root Cellar with a lot of the brown ale coming through. As Mike said it is more tart than sour. I love the cherry hint in the nose, didn't taste the cherries much though.

Drinking the Beerista right now. Very good. You're greeted with a strong nose of espresso right off and a dose of roasted barley. The flavor isn't overly bitter from the dark malts but just nice and smooth. Just the right amount of sweetness to round it out. A really well done beer.

Mikey said...

Anyone getting any of the peppery notes from the Guatemalan coffee? I think it's quite nice. It's great to have two very different coffee stouts out right now.

kent said...

Not being a coffee connoisseur I'm not sure what I'm tasting coffee-wise. It's much more subtle than I expected. Very different from the Jack Mormon.

Regarding the Dissident, I have to say that I prefer the Root Cellar myself. Especially impressive since the Root Cellar was a bit of a lucky accident. Anyway, we sold 1 case of the Dissident and have 4 left at The Bayou. I believe that Squatters is all out of the Root Cellar sadly. If I am wrong someone correct me.

Mikey said...

I believe Squatters is out of Root Cellar. However, I did notice that they do have a few bottles of 529 left.

kent said...

They are definitely out of the Root Cellar. And you're right they do have some 529 left but it looked to be getting sparse. I've got another six bottles of the Root Cellar on hand and we'll see how it ages.

I'll be in Friday to check out the Dissident but it'll have to be awesome to beat the cellar.

shead said...

I like Root Cellar a little more than Dissident. I love the cherry in the nose of Dissident though!

Mikey said...

@ Shead. Agreed! The Dissadent is WAY off-balance. Root Cellar is sublime.

I picked up a bottle of 2010 Dissident, at the Park City liquor store today. On the bottle it had a best after date of 11/01/11. This beer sounds as though it will improve with some age.

Store #25 3255 East 3300 South has a couple of cases of The Abyss and The Dissident as of last night.

Douglas said...

Which vintage of the Abyss?

Anonymous said...

2010 I did see some 2009 at the downtown wine store though.

Douglas said...

I want me some 2010 Abyss! 09 had some issues.
