Just saw a mention of this on facebook.... what does anyone know about it?
Nope but I'll stay tuned.
Living in Katy myself, I wish I liked their beer. Pale Horse was good at first but then it got boring. Not really enough flavor. Hopefully that will change.
I'm not a fan of their beers either... I can drink Ridgeback but it's only average to me. I hate BlackWitO.
The Jalapeno Ale was blech... but I'd like to try this one.
I love their Mint IPA, it's damn good with Pho! Can't knock the Jalapeno Ale until you have it with BBQ, it surprisingly works very well. (Wouldn't have it on its own).
Anyone going this Friday for the release?! I hope some of you guys make it out.
Jalapeno Ale... Worst beer ever. I lie, 2nd to ghost face killah.
Tsk tsk tsk! Have it with BBQ damnit!
When/where's the release?
Try ghost scorpion.
Friday at Outlaw Dave's. Not sure what the availability will be after that.
I put this brewery and Perdernales in the "amateur brewer frinanced a bottling line" category.
Also, their bottles have labels. So they're liars as well
Wrong. Mama Mia ! It's Pizza Beer.
I haven't had the mint IPA -- and I'm not much of an IPA drinker anyway -- but I hear good things about it. I've had the hefe and milk stout, both were fine. Not bad but not ones I would choose over most other options. I liked BlackWit-O even though I don't think it's much of a wit but rather an American wheat with midnight or chocolate wheat. If you don't like anise flavors, it's not for you.
I thought about scoring some of that when I saw it up in MI. lol
I have a thing for the "worst of the worst". I got a box today full of Loons, BCBS, and Pizza Beer. Guess which ones I am most excited for.
I don't want to ruin my BBQ with their Jalapeno Ale.... I've had a few friends try the Mint IPA and very few liked it.. but I still want to try it...
I'd certainly love to give this stout a try... as I love stouts and porters.
wow, did you say "Mint IPA" or is that a joke?
No, they do have a Mint IPA. That is actually the only beer I have enjoyed from No Label. I did like the black wit-o but revisited recently and wasn't too great. The Hefe isn't too bad either. But Jalapeño ale... Blah. Dude I eat jalapeños with a meal a few times a week and Id hate to try that beer with my food. Its not a good beer imo, and this is coming from a Mexican that enjoys his spiciness. Maybe like HopAG said, might be good for a Pho broth but no way its an enjoyable beer.
Hahaha I'm the only one on this damn forum with No Label love!
It's not the best but I enjoy what they are trying to do there
I had a chai porter of theirs last year...obviously a bit different, but I did enjoy it. Wish I had access to more of their stuff, but only in Houston a couple of times a year.
Well i ldefinitely dig weird stuff and i don't care if the brewery is popular or riding a hype wave or not. I fucking love the idea of a mint IPA and i'd really like to try one...from anybody.
I don't suppose i can get No label in AZ.
Well my in my spring trip to texas.
I think that's buffalo bayou.
I enjoy me some pale horse.
My trading partners are always excited to see pale horse, el hefe, and ridgeback.
Buff's collaboration with City Acre to be exact.
Aw crap, you are totally right. Heh - guess I might have had one too many that evening & got confused.
Edit: Oh, what I had by them was their milk stout. I remember it being pretty solid.
Elda M. Wish this was around still.
I think Elda is a seasonal for them.....
I don't hate No Label... I just don't really enjoy much that they make... but I'd love to try this porter... and hopefully love it!
Damn this Bourbon Vanilla Stout was pretty badass. It wasn't boozy at all, they did a great job with the way they paired the stout and bourbon flavors. Very thick and stouty but with that Bourbony flavor you grow to love.
Would of given it an A+ if only the vanilla flavors were a bit more pronounced. That was my only concern, pretty solid. Would pick up again.
Where did you have this?
What he said!
Probably at the anniversary party.
They rolled it out last night at Outlaw Dave's.
I like all their flagship brews, with the exception of Black-wit-o. However, since it wasn't one of the original brews, I don't consider it a flagship. I do have to say though, I have never had any of their beer bottled. Local breweries should be enjoyed fresh from a local tap IMO. And Elda....just absolutely yummy.
I think the past couple years of over-obsession with barreled and limited brews has killed local love for a just solid beer.
Good points there LadyofMuchBeer.
