Collective Arts Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Porter with Devin

This one is going to be a very short review. We had this beer with Christmas dinner (not quite 6 months ago), so we weren’t able to take traditional notes. I was hoping for something that might cut the savoury with enough structure and flavours of its own to compete. The Collective Arts Bourbon Barrel […]

Innis & Gunn Vanishing Point VP02 with Dan, Dad & Steph

Most completistisming going one here. We had the VP01. So therefore we must have Innis & Gunn’s Vanishing Point VP02 or how will we know.. anything? How will we know we even exist unless we experience two similar things and observe their subjective differences over linear time? I ASK YOU. Last year’s beer was only […]

Thornbridge Eldon Oak Infused Imperial Stout with Davey

Thornbridge Eldon Oak Infused Imperial Stout, a Dickensian(*) name to be sure. Thornbridge Brewery is in the UK and the names of their beers seem to indicate an affinity for literature and the arts. I can’t find the Eldon in their beerlist so I’ll have to assume this dark beer makes swarthy reference to the […]

Great Lakes Brewery 30th Anniversary Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout with Steph

Another big bottled, high abv, milestone-celebrating weird beer here, with a twist – it’s actually good! A lot of times these large format beers can be.. um.. challenging. A lot of hops to make big flavour can make something undrinkable or a lot of yeast to kick up the alcohol content can make things a […]

Innis & Gunn Vanishing Point VP01 Imperial Stout with Dan, Ryan, Adrian & Bowick

Which is guess is cool as long as […]

Trafalgar Mighty Oak Imperial Oaked Brown Ale

It’s been a while since we’ve had a new cask aged beer, especially one not from Innis & Gunn. It’s also been a while since I did a solo review, but everyone was “busy” or “working” or “thinks I have a problem”. WELL NUTS TO THEM I AM DRIVEN BY ART AND ROCKET-POWERED. Trafalgar Ales […]

Nickel Brook Kentucky Bastard Imperial Stout with Dan

Bourbon-aged beer – truly it is a promise of great taste. This is the Nickel Brook Kentucky Bastard Imperial Stout, a nice little post-New Year’s cask aged beer. It’s aged in unspecified Kentucky bourbon barrels for an unspecified amount of time.  And for some reason there’s a planetary model of an atom on the front, […]
