Personal Beer Review: Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout

Personal Beer Review: Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout

Like the Mexican Peanut Butter Stout, the peanut butter flavor is not an adjunct that is an afterthought like so many flavor themed beers. Although this Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout might lack some of the depths and nuance of their other styles, the overall experience is fantastic.

Personal Beer Review: Left Hand Brewing Wake Up Dead Nitro

Personal Beer Review: Left Hand Brewing Wake Up Dead Nitro

The Left Hand Brewing Wake Up Dead Nitro is a solid performer in the nitro category. It takes a Russian Imperial Stout and smooths the flavor out, making it extremely approachable. Although the stout itself is not overly complex for a Russian Imperial Stout style, the overall experience is enjoyable.

Personal Beer Review: BrewDog Dogma

Personal Beer Review: BrewDog Dogma

The BrewDog Dogma is a fantastically balanced and satisfying wee heavy beer. The flavor masks the ABV, and you could find yourself downing several of these with ease.

Personal Beer Review: Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Latte

Personal Beer Review: Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Latte

The Peanut Butter Latte is by far the most sessionable of the Belching Beaver Peanut Butter series. The flavors aren't as bold or palate assailing as the other two styles I've tried. Although the beer rated lower overall, I would rather have two of the Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Lattes back to back in a social setting.

Personal Beer Review: The Dandy Brewing Company My Boy Lollipop

Personal Beer Review: The Dandy Brewing Company My Boy Lollipop

The Dandy Brewing Company My Boy Lollipop is such a funky beer and the flavor combinations are a refreshing change from any beer I've had in the past. Sweet, sour and then an interesting toasted barley finish that hits you out of nowhere.

Personal Beer Review: Ballast Point Indra Kunindra

Personal Beer Review: Ballast Point Indra Kunindra

The Ballast Point Indra Kunindra is a funky beer but does end up being interesting. The flavor combinations are unique, but most of the measurable components are out of balance, leading to a fairly average experience overall.

Personal Beer Review: Collective Arts Brewing Lunch Money

Personal Beer Review: Collective Arts Brewing Lunch Money

The body on the Collective Arts Brewing Lunch Money is just too thin. There's no sweetness or ale-like quality carrying the beer. The hops provide some nice body and serve as the only notable standout from an otherwise lackluster experience. This is the first beer from Collective Arts that has been a disappointment.
