A friend of mine (whatup Dave!) called me from his local bottle shop to let me know that they had this new Boatyard NE Style IPA, and I was anxious to try it. I have never had a beer from Boatyard before, but I know they really started distributing a lot in my area and after this taste of theirs, you better be sure that I’m going to be on the lookout for it in the future.

I was really impressed with the first Blackrocks beer I tried, Presque Ale, so when I saw The Murray Project on shelves, I was excited to give them another go.

Woah, Wolverine State Brewing’s 2017 Massacre weighs in at 14.5%. That… is really strong. When do you decide to stop drinking beer and start drinking bourbon instead? I’m really curious to see how this one will mellow out after some cellaring.

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.

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/
