Roak Brewing – French Toast Devil Dog Oatmeal Stout

I’ve been waiting patiently for this to hit the shelves, and guess what… IT’S FINALLY HERE! Roak’s French Toast Devil Dog is finally hitting shelves – I’ve enjoyed it immensely on tap, but it’s almost more exciting that I can take it home any time I can find it! Hmmm, but do I like it? Should it only be enjoyed on tap? Watch and find out!

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!

Bell’s Whiskey Barrel Aged Cherry Stout – Do You Like it Sweet or Tart?

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.

New Holland Brewing Company – Dragon’s Milk Reserve – Salted Caramel

Fresh on the heels of their last Dragon’s Milk Reserve release, New Holland is now unleashing a blast of salted caramel on the masses. Salted caramel (the candy) is one of those things that I didn’t realize I loved until after I had it, and after having a salted caramel porter from Pigeon Hill in Muskegon, I knew that it was also a flavor in beer that I loved. Who does it better? Pigeon Hill with their porter, or New Holland with this bourbon barrel aged stout? Keep watching to find out!

Odd Side Ales – Rye Hipster Brunch Stout 2017

Since I just posted my review of Odd Side’s Hipster Brunch Stout, I figured this would be a good time to show and compare the rye version. Both beers are pretty big at 11% ABV, but where they differ is in their barrel aging process. While Hipster Brunch uses bourbon barrels, this Rye Hipster Brunch uses rye whiskey barrels, giving it a bit of a different flavor from it’s bourbon barrel aged sibling. While both have big tastes of smoke and bacon, which one does it better? Watch more and see!

Odd Side Ales – Hipster Brunch Stout

Sometimes when you read the description on the bottle, you get disappointed when you get a taste and none of those flavors come through. Odd Side has some pretty lofty aspirations on Hipster Brunch Stout, describing Maple Syrup, Coffee, Bourbon and Baco… WHAT!? Bacon!?? Ok, I am interested, albeit perhaps it’s more of a morbid curiosity… So anyway, what do you and what don’t you pick up in Hipster Brunch Stout? Stay Tuned!

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.

Brewery Vivant’s Tart Side of the Moon – A Tart Imperial Stout?

My mind was kind of blown when I tried Brewery Vivant’s Pumpin Tart, because it took what I liked about pumpkin ales and added that extra twist of tartness. Well, guess what? They’re back at it again and this time it’s a tart imperial stout called “Tart Side of the Moon”. Weighing in at 9.5%, it’s sure to be a doozy.
