Photo of bottle of Kirkland's IPA Kirkland India Pale Ale Sunday, April 15, 2018 - What am I thinking? Am I crazy? Why am I reviewing a Kirkland beer? Well, the story is I was in Costco and found a multipack with several flavors and a cost of 0.87 per bottle. I figured, why not see if this beer is any good. And if its not? What's the worst that can happen? Well, my tastebuds could fall out of my mouth. I could go blind. I could absolutely hate it. Keep Reading...
Due South Mariana Trench Due South's Mariana Trench (2017) Saturday, January 20, 2018 - Due South's Mariana Trench (2017) is a one of my favorite beers from this brewery. They have mixed the base with other flavors, but this is the best version of it. Bourbon barrel aged, this beer is a bit heavy in the mouth, strong vanilla and chocolate flavors with a light molasses mouthfeel. Smells heavenly and tastes like it should. Another great beer from Due South. This beer gets me excited to go back to Keep Reading...
Bottle and Glass of Founders CBS Founders CBS (Canadian Breakfast Stout) Saturday, December 16, 2017 - CBS is an Imperial Stout that has been tainted (in a good way) with coffee and chocolate (apparently imported chocolate) and then aged in bourbon barrels that were recently used to store maple syrup. How appropriate that this special release was done so in the month of December. This beer starts with a chocolatey flavor but you can almost feel the maple syrup once it's down the hatch. This is one of the few beers Keep Reading...
Bottle of Backwoods Bastard Beer Founders - Backwoods Bastard Review Sunday, December 10, 2017 - Founders has consistently found a way to brew awesome beers. Forgive me, but if I have a choice between another beer and a Founders beer, I'm picking Founders. This time, I chose their Backwoods Bastard. While one of my favorites, not everyone will like this beer (sorry Founders). You'll want to like Scotch or Bourbon if you're gonna try this one...oh, and the wee heavy part...they're not joking. At 11.7% and "cave aged in Bourbon Keep Reading...
NOBO - My Schwarz Is Bigger Than Yours My Schwarz Is Bigger Than Yours Tuesday, November 28, 2017 - I was really excited when I read on NOBO's Facebook page that they were going to feature a schwarzbier for their "Experimental Friday" release on Black Friday. How apropos, I thought! Let me start by noting I discovered my love for schwarzbier during a somewhat recent business trip to Ft. Collins, Colorado where I was lucky enough to stumble upon not just one, but 2 different breweries serving up this fine style of dark lager. I promise Keep Reading...
Photo of a Due South Mariana Trench beer Mariana Trench (2016) Saturday, November 25, 2017 - I've wanted to try Mariana Trench for a few years now. It sounded so good. I didn't even care which year I'd try. Last night, I had the chance to try it at Due South. They were doing a "Black Friday" event (get it, black beer for black Friday) where they were selling glasses of the 2016 stash. Am I glad I had the chance to try it. This beer is very good. Dark, mysterious, Keep Reading...
Stout beer Left Hand - Wake Up Dead Nitro Stout Sunday, November 12, 2017 - One of my new favorites! This beer is very smooth. The perfect mix of chocolate, fruit, and licorice along with the nitro makes this a beer to remember. When you exhale after drinking, you get a hint of coffee and the licorice jumps out. Don’t worry though, if you don’t like licorice, you may still like this beer, as it does not overpower the taste at all. With the high ABV (10%), it can get dangerous Keep Reading...
Picture of an IPA from Due South Nun With A Chainsaw Sunday, November 5, 2017 - So the story goes that after Hurricane Irma passed through south Florida in September, one nun in Miami “made it her mission to clear debris.”  This beer is thus a tribute to those in South Florida who had to cut and maim the once beautiful trees that were in their back and front yards to get out. Irma created a mess, even though it was only a Category 1 storm in Miami. We were weeks Keep Reading...
Bottle of KBS (Founders) Kentucky Breakfast Stout KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout) from Founders Sunday, October 22, 2017 - This, by far, is my favorite beer. It's tough to describe and easy to drink...but only if you enjoy a boozy flavored coffee beer. It pours dark (almost black) with a light brown foam that disappears reasonably slowly. It smells like a light roasted coffee. This beer is boozy, so one is usually enough. This beer is hard to find because it is release in late March. I was able to try it last time Keep Reading...
Photo of a Peanut Butter Imperial Stout NOBO - Peanut Butter Imperial Stout Sunday, October 1, 2017 - On Friday, September 28, NOBO offered a small batch sample of their Peanut Butter Imperial Stout. I liked it. It was a bit boozy, but certainly had a good stout base that I enjoyed. The peanut butter wasn't too strong, and I could drink more than one...something I have found a little difficult to do when drinking a peanut butter flavored beer (from other sources).
