Review: Stoudts Fat Dog Red Wine Barrel Aged0

by Shaneat 02:28 PM

Dubbed in-house at Stoudts as “Winey Dog” – this iteration of Fat Dog is aged in red wine barrels for 14 months, putting a unique spin on their classic Imperial Oatmeal Stout. I had the chance of grabbing a pour on-tap at Stoudts and also took a few bottles to-go. Previously, the only other iteration of Fat Dog to be bottled to my knowledge has been a bourbon barrel version.

Prairie Artisan Ales, the relatively new brewery out of Oklahoma, has made a splash in the craft beer community with their farmhouse-style saisons and stouts.

I hadn’t seen this one in the Philadelphia area yet, so the choice was easy. At 9.5% ABV, I’m expecting rich chocolatey notes with some bourbon and oak undertones.

Review: Goose Island Night Stalker0

by Mikeat 03:44 PM

Big Imperial Stouts are mainstay of my winter beer fridge. With their bold robust flavors, warming characteristics, and filling mouth feel they make a great winter beer. One that I have been interested in trying for a while is Night Stalker from Goose Island. When I happened upon it while exploring a new beer store I had to pick up a bottle for review.
