    New one from Rogue up tonight. This one is Kulture Clash.



    Kulture Clash is an explosive collision with Townshend’s Brew Dr. Kombucha, a fearless fermenter and world-class Oregon brand. By combining the unique tangy flavors of a custom-brewed kombucha from Brew Dr. with a Rogue blonde ale specifically brewed to complement it, we’ve created a flavorful, invigorating balance of blonde and bold that both kombucha and beer drinkers will enjoy.
    Poured a darker gold into a Tulip with a large white head. Has a mildly sour smell with some citrus, yeast, and ginger. Flavor is definitely spicy ginger, citrus, biscuity malts, and I suppose what kombucha tea tastes like (I've never had it). Medium bodied with a respectable 6.9% ABV. A very nice brew for a very warm evening!

    Having some Ballast Point Victory At Sea - High West Barrel-Aged Imperial Porter tonight!



    A 12 percent ABV imperial porter brewed with coffee beans sourced from Caffe Calabria, vanilla and peanut butter before being aged in barrels that previously held High West bourbon and rye. The porter has been aged in various brands of barrels and released in bottles over the years, including Woodford Reserve Bourbon Barrel-Aged Victory At Sea (12.2 percent ABV), Heaven Hills Bourbon Barrel-Aged Victory At Sea (12.2 percent ABV) and Rum & Rye Barrel-Aged Victory At Sea (12.4 percent ABV), among others.
    Poured ink black into a Snifter with a sizable, lasting light brown head. Allowed to warm a bit. Has a very nice smell of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and boozy bourbon. Taste is delicious! All of the smells are there in the flavor with a very noticeable alcohol taste and a very light bitterness on the backend. Has a decently heavy body to accompany the robust 12% ABV. Definitely deserving of it's RateBeer score! Good stuff and was surprisingly inexpensive for what it is at $14/4 pack.

    Time for review #2! Another local brew, this time a new release from Rhinegeist - Brittlebrain Belgian Style Golden Ale.



    Pith helmets on, we dig for the holy ale. Soon it emerges, golden sun in its eyes, roaring for liquid relief. Brittlebrain is an effervescent Belgian Style Golden Ale with notes of fruit and light spice, brewed with Cincinnati Museum Center in celebration of the power of dinosaur.
    Poured a dark and dirty golden into a Tulip glass with a big, persistent white head. Smells of Belgian spices and tart citrus. A somewhat weak scent overall though. Flavor is yeasty with Belgian spice and some citrus bitterness. The body is surprisingly heavy for the style. Has a healthy 8.6% ABV. Tasty brew!

    Reviewing an anniversary brew from Bell's tonight, their Cherry Stout 30th Anniversary Reserve!



    American Stout Brewed With Cherries
    Shelf Life - Unlimited

    When a beer reaches a milestone like this, a special batch is required. Brewed with even more cherries than the original that inspired it, this version celebrates 30 years of a Bell’s classic.

    This version was brewed in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of our Cherry Stout, another specialty beer that was first brewed in 1988 as a nod to a local homebrew club in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It has grown to be one of the most anticipated beers we brew at the brewery every year.

    We brewed a version of Cherry Stout in 2001 using oak chips and cherry pits. This time around, we decided to brew with whole cherries and oak chips.
    Poured pitch black into a Snifter with no head except a dark tan topping. Allowed to warm slightly. Smells of roasted malts, oak, sweet cocoa, and tart cherry. All of the smells are in the flavor in a perfect blend and very rich. Medium heavy bodied with a nice 9% ABV. Great anniversary brew from Bell's!

    Reviewing a Clown Shoes brew tonight. Gargoyle Love Song 2018.



    Gargoyles gone wild? Those bastards were meant to protect the city. Instead, they started to tear Chicago apart. Fortunately, Crasher fired up his jet packs and flew in to sing them a love song. For this, the 2018 version, we barrel aged Undead Party Crasher in high-end bourbon barrels and added large quantities of vanilla beans.
    Poured ink black into a Snifter with a moderate sized brown head. Allowed to warm a bit. Smells of bourbon, a little sweet chocolate and caramel, and roasted malt. Tastes of sweet cocoa, oak, caramel, and a bit of bourbon. Body is medium heavy and the ABV comes in at 10.5%. Typical great tasting Clown Shoes brew!
