Hot donkeys doofers! It's a late beer'ing from me tonight. I used to be proud of my ability to resist sleep until I had two children and passed that same superpower onto them. Little Humphreys they are.
But who cares because it's Saturday and that means it's beer o'clock! And look at the two skull splitters we have this week. ABV's in double figures for the pair of them.
I don't believe that science has yet to find a way to count so high?!
These will be mind bending! Should I be worried? Who will I be after drinking these two chaps? A very good question, let us find out!
So first up, all the way from the Netherlands is the
Yikes, 14%!?! That's stronger than a lot of wines!?
What if I drink it and afterward believe my name is Jeffrey and beg people to spank me? Yeek.
Oh well, you gotta take chances!
Good grief. Look at that. A sister of the night and no mistake.
It looks like it might ravage me.
The first taste just reveals a burnt coffee taste. I am almost disappointed. Then I have another and slowly the caramel, toffe-esque maple notes come out to play.
It's lovely. Mind you, it's still strong as fuck. You wouldn't want to be having 5 or 6 of these and swiping through Tinder!
A fine brew, it looks like the Netherlands can do no wrong. 8/10 booms.
Can our challenger, the Aztec Shake, produced by two of my favourite breweries working in tandem, put up a fight against the maple?
Here it is.
Dang-nation! This beer appears to have everything that is good in the world.
The blurb tells us that it has dark chocolate, molasses, ancho chillies, cinnamon and vanilla.
Awesomeness. At least I hope so.
A pleasing inky black to this one. Like a gimp suit. And I mean that in a good way.
Let me get this in my gub.
Oh my word. By the seven aunties! It's fab. Slightly raisin sweet with a touch of vanilla and the very mild hint of ancho.
What does slightly drunk video man have to say?
Cor he seems happy... Too happy?
I award 8.5/10 booms!! A narrow winner.
Hurrah for beer!!
Happy weekend everyone!
