I've had a few of these coffee flavoured beers lately, BrewDog Roaster Coaster was the last one I had and I really like them.



I enjoy them but I can't session any of those craft beers, if I'm having a few beers on a Saturday night on COD, I'll tend to go with Innes and Gunn Lager and then buy 2 craft type beers to break it up.

I've went a bit protectionist lately and try to buy firstly from Scottish brewers.

Ach, it's a collaboration?

I'd spit that Danish crap right out my mouth if I'd known that.


It actually wasn't bad tbh.

EDIT: It's worse actually... it's fucking AMERICAN!!!

A 9.0% ABV imperial coffee stout brewed with seven different malts, this is an incredibly decadent dark beer led from the baseline. Chocolate, coffee and vanilla rise from the aroma, alongside roasted nutty notes and malt-derived bitterness. Kettle-hopped with Chinook for an additional offset to the rich, creamy oats and wheat, this is a balanced, complementary beer lifted by the power of Nitro.

We decided to brew this beer in Columbus for two reasons; firstly our new Nitro canning line there epically showcases this dispense method in our imperial stout. Secondly, it seemed hugely appropriate given both ourselves and Evil Twin have found new homes in the USA. Founded in Copenhagen, Evil Twin recently opened a 15-barrel brewery and taproom/beer garden in New York.
I feel like I've been sodomised prison style.

Westvleteren 12 XII round by round



Let's get ready to rumbleee!

Round 1, presentation - it pours out on my Westmalle Trappist glass with a lot of white head, settling into thick dark cherry red, almost pitch black, heavy creamy body with small uniform bubbles. Getting excited guys!

Round 2, aroma - surprising! More lighter color summer fruits like apricot, also some fruity esters and Belgian candies... not much dark stuff yet! Oh there's some mature sour cherries as it is settles down, perhaps some sweet caramel, no roasted stuff yet. Reminds me some of them beers with champagne yeast

Round 3, tasting - DOWN GOES THE FIRST SIP! Lots of fruity esters, also floral and still feel lighter than the color suggests, nothing heavy on the dark tastes of the Rochefort 10. But along come some hop bitterness... not for long, only to be overtaken by sweet, delightful, creamy caramel. First half of the bottle poured delicately, I'll shake the bottle to get all them bottle conditioned stuff, if any, for the 2nd half. Bittersweet, fruity, estery aftertaste, quite good

Round 4, mouthfeel - it's thick but not like some of those heavy imperial stouts or the Rochefort, more velvety and creamy, and quite lively at least in first half, splashing little flavor bombs all over the palate. More brownish and hazy color once rest of the bottle poured in, I bet it's gonna git more tasty!

Round 5, AND IT'S OUVAAAH! Steve Smoger steps in and waves this off. Waives this off? Which one is it? Drink a few of them Belgian strong ales and this what you get - a tremendous brew worth ever penny of the nasty price tag - this shit cost me a fucking fortune assholes! Fuck! More fruity esters and Belgian yeast for the last sips, and finally some darker malts appearing. Also a little alcohol taste at (no surprise at 10,2% ABV) and perhaps some oaks? Strange, don't think this ever touched a wooden barrel... Bitterness gone.

Of all the beer styles it's these abbey brews that are with the biggest journey on the palate, many different flavors depending on serving and last sip temperature, getting some are and losing carbonation. I'll say this: for my dark soul and palate, I guess Rochefort 10 remains the absolute go-to-Belgian-beer, but this one does live up to the lofty reputation - of being the best beer ever according to many. 9/10

Yeah that's fantastic, hope you had the whole 0,75l bottle to yourself! Nothing beats getting shitfaced via Belgian ales.
I had the 750, mate., although prob need two to get proper shitfaced. Will top up with a few splashes of vodka.

What beers do feel are better or at least comparable? I'm trying to cut back on the beer intake due to carbs, so when I do want a beer now I'm keen on some of the good stuff.

Of the Belgian ales? The filthy expensive Westvleteren 12 XII for one, the Rochefort 6, 8 & 10, Struise Pannepot, Rodenbach Grand Cru (that's a mighty sour), Kasteel Cuvée du Chateau, any Duvel Tripel Hop (expecially CItra), Gouden Carolus Tripel, Kwak, Liefmans Goudenband (another sour). Many great ones, but the Chimay Blue is damn good too.

Cheers, I think the Westvleteren 12 XII were next to the Chimays in the fridge but I think they were almost double ($29.99AU compared to $17.99 AU for the Chim.

I think I already had the Duvel Tripel Hop from there, nice drop.

The Wild Beer Co. Breakfast of Champignons 2018



Okay so today was hot as fuk and I'm well tired, so I've decided to open this Wild Beer Co. sour brewed with mushrooms.

Wait, what?

Yes, mushrooms. Okay, so yeasts are also fungi so I guess it's not that odd, but yeah, this one's with actual mushrooms. And I dig it! Got that funky, barnyard aroma and taste up front, also a bit spicy. And it's obviously somewhat sour with cherries and gooseberries, but not overwhelming... Look, this might be too trippy for ya, but unless they're also very sweet or over-flavored, neither of which I prefer, I actually love a wild beer! 7,5/10

Chimay blue is easily my favourite, Problem is One small bottle of that can easily send a productive afternoon of course
