Boulder Beer Irish Blessing

Todd: GOOD, strong, if you like coffee, it’s up your alley, but overpowers the whiskey

Bob: GOOD/VERY GOOD , labeling stinks for details, clean finish.

Breckenridge Nitro Irish

Todd: GOOD, smooth, easy-drinking, light in the alcohol content

Bob: FAIR, not memorable, great intro to stouts because it’s so light

Innis & Gunn

Todd: GOOD/VERY GOOD looks like Coca Cola, a little bitter, picking up a little of the whiskey.

Bob: VERY GOOD, well balanced, light, no aftertaste, but also no chocolate

Guinness Extra:

Todd: VERY GOOD, tasty, malty, the gold standard

Bob: GOOD/VERY GOOD, beginning of the revolution
