Allagash Brewing Company’s 2013 Interlude & Phantom of the Paradise

Originally posted on beer and a movie:

Hey there, Drinkers!

In classic BAAM fashion, today’s pairing was originally going to be something special. Something elevated. We were going to drink a great beer while watching a critically-acclaimed film. Please note the past tense. What happened is that I realized the aforementioned critically-acclaimed film was over three hours long and thus I made a last minute change to an AWFUL (re. amazing) film that was only 1.5 hours long. And so today’s BAAM pairing was born: Allagash Brewing Company’s 2013 Interlude and the 1974 Brian De Palma cult-favorite Phantom of the Paradise. So grab your noise-canceling headphones and let’s get started!

Believe it or not, this is the second time I’ve seen 1974 Brian De Palma campfest that is Phantom of the Paradise. And while the film is generally regarded as a cult-classic, I’m not sure it’s a classic for the right reasons. Speaking broadly, it’s a…

Originally posted on Beer Served Rare:

Firestone-Walker-SLOambicNext up from Firestone Walker is the final Barrelworks Liberation release of 2014, featuring SLOambic. Ready to release on Saturday, November 15, this is Sour Opal fermented in French oak barrels with 1500 lbs of ollallieberries, finishing at 5.7% ABV.

Release info is TBA, stay tuned.

Commercial description:

In 2009, Masterblender Jim Crooks, found a peculiar sounding fruit called the Ollalieberry, grown in San Luis Obispo County (SLO), California, home to our brewery. Pronounced oh-la-leh berry, this large blackberry-resembling fruit was first bred in Oregon, but flourishes in California. The discovery led to Jim’s creation of a delicious beer we call SLOambic. For this vintage, 1500 lbs. of berries were added to Sour Opal, a beer matured 18 months in French oak barrels, then fermented using our proprietary blend of microflora for an additional 4 months. Bursting with ripe berries, brambles, as well as jam, the fruit eventually gives way…

Blue Mountain Barrel House “Spooky” Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Pumpkin Ale (2014)

Originally posted on thoughts on pumpkin beer:

Blue Mountain Barrel House “Spooky” Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Pumpkin Ale is 8.2% ABV.

I poured some of a 750 ml bottle into a stout glass.

Appearance: My pour was careful at first, and had a heavier hand at the end. This produced about two fingers of frothy and thick egg-shell-colored head. This clung to the sides of the glass and left some definite lacing, while settling in to a notable cloud still atop the beer. This has a medium to dark burnt orange/amber, with good clarity and just a slight haze to it. It looks to have moderate carbonation.

Smell: Smelling this immediately gives me rich bourbon, along with some vegetal pumpkin behind it. There is a nice richness in smell, created also by the addition of some warm spiciness that blends in and doesn’t advertise itself so clearly or heavily. I get a little earthy yeast, and some mild bright…
