Well folks, it’s definitely winter time here in the upper midwest of the US, because this past week we finally got our first blizzard of the year. And what do you do when it’s cold as hell out? You snuggle in for some tasty brews by your partner, and bake up some holiday cookies or treats, all while sitting in front of a nice fire. One of the few good things we like about this season is the robust, hearty flavor of stouts and porters. On this episode, we wanted to take a closer look at the sweeter side of this fine beer, and dive into pastry stouts.
In this show we sample and review six by Drekker Brewing: Bourbon Barrel Aged Flizzard with the variants of Oreo, Snickers, and Butterfinger, followed by their What Lies Beneath Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with cacao, coffee, and vanilla, and the variant with Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup. The coffee in these last two was provided by the cats at Thunder Coffee, and the maple syrup that came out of those said barrels was delicious as well! We also taste Drekker’s Smooth Or Die Peanut Butter Milk Stout. Lastl but not least is Stone Brewing’s Xocoveza imperial stout with chocolate, coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.
