Review: Duchesse De Bourgogne3

by Shaneat 12:08 PM

Brouwerij Verhaeghe, based in Belgium, produces a divine Flemish Red Ale, Duchesse De Bourgogne. I’ve had the pleasure of having this occasionally on draft, when I can find it, and despite its relatively expensive price-point, it’s a real treat. The Duchesse comes in, typically served in 10 oz, at 6% ABV.

Part of my most recent mixed six pack included the Brooklyn Brewery’s Post Road. The label describes this beer as a Pumpkin Ale at a typical 5% ABV for the style. Personally, I’ve enjoyed every single one of Brooklyn’s brews I’ve tried, but that just sets the bar of expectations even higher for this one.

Review: Rock Art Pumpkin Imperial Spruce Stout0

by Mikeat 10:20 AM

Pumpkin… Stout… How could you not want to drink something that combines those two? Rock Art Brewery out of Vermont has in their Pumpkin Imperial Spruce Stout, a 8% ABV Imperial Stout. The label reads “Extreme” and that it “Ain’t For No Mama’s Boy or Daddy’s Girl.” For a Stout, I’m expecting this to have an above average amount of spice and bitterness, while hopefully keeping many convergent flavors (coffee, chocolate, pumpkin, etc) in check.
