Stone Brewing – Totalitarian Imperial Russian Stout and Nutista Nutbutter

This is my first non-Michigan beer review! Thanks to viewer Ryan Walsh, he tipped me off that Stone was looking for YouTube beer reviewers to give their Totalitarian Imperial Russian Stout the fair and honest treatment. Stone reached out and also sent along A nutbutter of the same name by Nutista.

The nutbutter by Nutista was developed in collaboration with Stone, so I’m giving that a try as well.

Ellison Brewing and Spirits – Der Roest Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout

Der Roest by Ellison Brewing and Spirits is one of the most intriguing stouts I’ve had since Brewery Vivant’s Tart Side of the Moon. It’s a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout, but unlike most BBA stouts, it doesn’t taste heavily of bourbon. Is Der Roest from Ellison Brewing and Spirits for you? Stay tuned!

Founders Brewing Company – KBS 2018 – The First Barrel Aged Series Release of the Year!

KBS is the first in Founder’s Barrel aged series of 2018. We know the next release will be Backwoods Bastard, which will become year-round after it’s release, but the rest of the Barrel Aged Series are unknowns. I picked this up, today – March 6th, so this review is from a bottle that’s as fresh as possible. KBS week started on March 5th, and will be rolling out after a limited taproom release so look for it soon!

Pigeon Hill Brewing – Your Mom on French Toast

Today I’m checking out Pigeon Hill Brewing Company’s Imperial Stout – Your Mom On French Toast. I can honestly say that Pigeon Hill has not disappointed me yet. They were my number one pick during my Oktoberfest drink off, and the Salted Caramel Porter was my favorite beer of 2017’s Fall Michigan Beer Fest in Eastern Market. I’ve been waiting to get my hands on “Your Mon On French Toast” for about 2 or 3 months when it was last released. It seemed like at that time it wasn’t gonna make it out to the East side of the state. Well this time around it was a different story. So how does YMOFT stack up? Watch the video and find out!

Founders CBS 2017 Review – The Final of the Barrel Aged Series for 2017 – Was it Worth the Wait?

Founders CBS was the most anticipated beer from the Grand Rapids Michigan Brewery. As the 6th and final beer of their “Barrel Aged” series, they had hop-heads and malt mavens anxiously awaiting it’s December 1st release. Well friends, that day has finally come and I was finally able to get my hands on it to bring it to you. I usually avoid buying tickets for beer releases because it’s usually not that much of an issue to buy beers like this if you know where to look. In the case of CBS, this seems like it’s more readily available outside of Founders home state of Michigan, which really leaves me scratching my head. Has Founders forgotten about it’s hometown fans, or have distributors just taken the beer where they’re sure it will sell? That’s not a question I can answer unfortunately – but what I can do is bring you my unbiased review.

New Holland Brewing’s Dragon’s Milk Reserve – Mocha Mint

Hey Friends, today I’m checking out New Holland Brewing’s Dragon’s Milk Reserve Mocha Mint which is an 11% Imperial Stout with Chocolate, Mint and Coffee flavors. The Dragon’s Milk Reserve line is the line that New Holland uses to test out some of their flavored Dragon’s Milk, and they usually put out about 3 or 4 of these a year. Being an imperial stout that’s bourbon barrel aged, I’m expecting to get some bourbon flavors on the back end. Check out about Mocha Mint at http://newhollandbrew.com/beer/dragons-milk-reserve-4/
