After a month of real (bad) scotch, how about a nice, simple beer? This ain’t that.
Nickel Brook Glory & Gold Bourbon Barrel Aged Cuvee is a lot of words for a capital F Fancy beer. It came in a box with a “wax” top. And the box was kind of embossed. Only missing a hand painted bottle numbering and certificate of authenticity for the full wank.
They even want you to age it some yourself. i am making the wank gesture again.
Here’s what we thought:
Dan – apple cidre, plums, malt
Simon – yeasty, berry, bready, bright, ripe
Dan – sour, coffee bitter, chocolate
Simon – sour, not well assembled, just sort of rank
Dan – start, sour candy aftertaste
Simon – short, sour, burpy
overall – very unique
Dan – 5.5/10
Simon – 2/10
Nickel Brook Glory & Gold Bourbon Barrel Aged Cuvee – 9.5% 500ml – $9.95 – Ontario
Try it? Ugh. Buy it? nugh.
