Not all bottles that you have posted are alcohol?
It’s mostly beer that I blog. I’ve considered blogging about bars as well, but beer is what I primarily do.
::Blows off dust:: It’s been a while. I thought this would be an ideal night to update the blog. Tonight I’m drinking My Blueberry Nightmare by Birrificio Del Ducato.
The aroma from the bottle is slightly different from when I poured it into a glass. I get pepper from the bottle, blueberry and whisky in the glass. The taste is that of what I’d imagine a blueberry flavored atomic warhead to taste. The aftertaste is a bit woody, like an oak. It’s not an easily drinkable beer, but it’s supposed to be sipped and enjoyed, which is what I’m doing. As I swallow each sip, I feel the heat of the hot chili in my throat.
This was a recommendation by a few coworkers of mine at the store, and I’m glad I took the chance on this one. If you don’t like sours, this beer isn’t for you. If you do like sours, this is a wonderful beer filled with flavor. I’ve been hit or miss with sours, but when it comes to this one, I’d love to buy another!
Today, I am honoring a legendary comedian who has fallen. He brought smiles to everyone and is one of my favorite actors. Robin Williams, you will be missed. This Goose Island Bourbon County 2012 is being drank in your honor. Cheers.
So, we recently started carrying Shiner beer at my store. I tried Shiner Bock, but forgot to post a review. Anyway, I’ll make up for it by reviewing White Wing. It’s a Belgian White style.
The color is a very light yellow, slightly cloudy, which I expected. The aroma and taste are very similar to other Belgian-style whites I’ve tried in the past, reminds me of cooking brats. I don’t eat brats anymore, but I still remember the flavor & aroma. This is quite possibly one of the most easy to drink Belgian whites I’ve ever had.
Overall, I would say this is a really good beer. Not my favorite of its style, but it’s a good one. I could probably drink the whole six pack in one sitting if I wanted.
I’m at home, watching a foreign film, and debating what I want for dinner. In the meantime, I’m trying this beer. It’s Stone Brewing’s Smoked Porter with chipotle peppers.
The aroma comes off a bit spicy, you can smell the pepper, and it’s a bit smoky. The taste isn’t quite as smoky as the aroma, but the taste has a spicy kick with the chipotle peppers. For it being as spicy as it claims to be, it’s rather easy to drink.
Compared to Punishment, this beer is easy to drink. If you like all things spicy, it’s right up your alley. If not, I’d suggest taking a pass on this.
So, I purchased this bottle a month or two ago, and I figured I’d give it a try today. Plasma Sake IPA is what it is. It’s brewed by Element Brewing Company.
The aroma is telling my nose rice, slight hint of hops. The taste is bitter yet smooth, and I can taste the IPA and Sake. It’s a good blend. Also, I find it easily drinkable.
I really like this beer. It’s a bit pricey, but well worth it. I’d like to see if it tastes better refrigerated.
Since it’s approaching the New Year, I thought it would be a great idea to try a powerful beer to close out 2013. This is Punishment by Stone Brewing.
I am getting chili pepper in the aroma. Jalapeños, especially jalapeños. The taste is flipping spicy. I poured a big mug of water to aide me if I need it, which I will. The aftertaste is like that of eating a jalapeño in one bite. And for the record, this is extremely difficult to drink.
It’ll be a while before I finish this, but I don’t mind this beer. I feel like I’m drinking hot sauce, but I’ll get over it. If you like super spicy things, this beer is right up your alley.
I’ve been buying mostly beers I’ve already reviewed. This is an exception. I think the last time I reviewed a Sam Smith was when I reviewed the organic chocolate stout. This is their winter welcome ale.
It’s got a rather flat aroma. Either my sense of smell is shot or there’s nothing to it. The taste is slightly bitter, mildly spicy, with a weird buttery aftertaste. Not sure why I’m getting that. It’s a pretty easily drinkable beer.
This was an enjoyable beer, I liked it. I’m glad it’s just a seasonal, as I may forget about it until next winter & purchase it again. I’ve never been disappointed by the beers Sam Smith makes.
