Bell’s Two Hearted is one the highest reviewed beers in the country, and admittedly one of my favorites – so when I heard that Bell’s was releasing their Double Two Hearted, an 11% double IPA version of their already hugely successful IPA, it was a no brainer that I had to bring it to the channel for you. I’ve said over and over that Two Hearted is one of my all time favorite beers – definitely in my top 5, so how does the double IPA version of it rank? Can it take the top spot? Watch and find out!
Today I’m diving in head first to Bell’s Hopsoulution Double IPA – this is a yearly April only release from Bell’s that a few of you have been asking about. Bell’s describes it as a remarkably drinkable Double IPA that pays tribute to one of Mother Nature’s finest creations, as several hop varietals combine for massive aromas of tropical fruit, citrus and pine. A mild caramel malt character and dry finish provide balance. Stay tuned to see!
Don’t say that Bell’s doesn’t like to take chances – Larry’s Latest is their first foray into Kettle Sour ales. I’ve been on a bit of a sour kick lately after avoiding them for years. How does Larry’s latest fare against the plethora of other sours out there, and can a sour produced on this level be as good as a handcrafted sour? Stay tuned to find out!
Depending how you answer the question in the title, I think that will help determine how you’d like this beer. Today’s Breview4u is Bell’s Whiskey Barrel Aged Cherry Stout which is the whiskey barrel aged variety of their Cherry Stout (which I haven’t had previously). There’s also a bourbon barrel aged version of this same stout, so be on the lookout for that one too.
On Today’s Breview 4 U, I’m checking out Bell’s first big release of the year – their double IPA Hopslam. Hopslam is a 10% double IPA that really fuses together the midwest style IPA with the West Coast IPA, combining it’s sweet opening notes with this piney and bitter finish. It’s probably one of Bell’s most anticipated seasonal releases year after year and I’m going to dive into it today. I hope you brought your taste buds with you!
I’m taking a look at the elusive and exclusive 2017 edition of Bell’s Black Note Stout. This time, topping over 11%, Black Note hits notes of dark chocolate, coffee and dried fruit to … a masterful performance!

Today I’m checking out Bell’s newest coffee milk stout, Arabicadabra. Arabicadabra was just released in October and boy is it a doozy. It’s brewed with a cold coffee extract and the added lactose makes this thing creamy as all get out. Bell’s is adding to their already killer lineup with another quality beer.
