While I keep trying IPAs and Hazy this and bitter that, the one thing we need more of are craft malt liquors! Well, today I’m bringing an old favorite of mine to the channel, and that is Odd Side Ale’s Laughing Clown. I hadn’t drank a malt liquor in quite some time before I had this a few years back and it re-ignited my love of the style – and as Samuel Jackson says: “It’ll get ya drunk!”
Today, I’m checking out Founders 4th in their 2017 barrel aged series lineup – DKML. I compare it to the Old Nation and Dark Horse Collaboration “The German Hobo”, which is another Michigan Malt Liquor in the same vein as DKML – the difference is that DKML is Bourbon Barrel Aged, giving it a heavier alcohol taste.
While DKML is the fourth in their bourbon barrel aged series, Backwoods Bastard is slated to release in November and another to be announced beer will be released in December.
Watch to see the first step in my attempt to bend the laws of physics with DKML.
Malt Liquor – it’s not just for 40oz anymore. Old Nation Brewing and Dark Horse Brewing Company have collaborated on “The German Hobo” – an 11.9% ABV Malt Liquor that is deceptively smooth. This one had me laying on my couch for a while after I was done.
