    WARSTEINER Premium Dunkel

    WARSTEINER Premium Dunkel "German for Dark" offers beer lovers incomparable taste satisfaction with its subtle spiciness, delicate aroma, and balance. What makes premium Dunkel distinctive among dark beers, is its thirst quenching, refreshingly drinkable flavor.

    WARSTEINER Premium Dunkel is a traditional German dark brown lager. In Germany, they would refer to this style of beer as, "Dunkel". WARSTEINER Premium Dunkel is described as being neither sweet nor roastily dry, with a slight spicy maltiness and a clean round finish. It has a reddish-black color which is almost opaque.

    * Traditional German dark lager
    * Brewed According to German Purity Law of 1516
    * Warm and appealing in appearance and style
    * 4.9% Alcohol by volume
    * No Chemicals, Additives Or Preservatives


    Available Packages

    * 12 oz. bottles, 4/6 pack, 2/12 pack
    * 30 Liter Kegs
    * 50 Liter Kegs


    FORD's review: Well, after hearing many recommendations of this German beer, I finally managed to find a 6 pack. It's a very good tasting beer as far as a dark lager goes, but that's hardly surprising, considering Germans invented the shit. Highly recommended for serving at a BBQ or some other occasion where you'll only be drinking one or two. Unfortunately, I didn't realize the alcohol content was so low when I bought it tonight, so it didn't do the job I needed it to after a shitty fucking week.

    Oh well, maybe when some sanity is restored to the world, I might actually make it to Germany to try the real thing.

    For tonight's entry, we go back to a recommendation made by Crowbar in the early days of this thread. It took me a while to track this down, but it was worth it......


    Bigfoot Ale is an award-winning example of the traditional barleywine ale style. It boasts a dense, fruity bouquet; an extremely rich, intense palate; and a deep, reddish-brown color. This ale is superbly balanced between an almost overpowering maltiness and a wonderfully bittersweet hoppiness.

    “…Bigfoot captures the imagination, and its character is as big as the name implies, with a huge hoppiness in its earthy aroma, a chewy palate, and a great depth of flavor.”

    – Michael Jackson,
    Michael Jackson’s Beer Companion

    GOLD MEDAL WINNER
    California State Fair (Strong Ale/Barleywine: 2000, 1997)
    Great Alaska Beer & Barleywine Festival
    (Barleywine Style Ale: 1998)
    Great American Beer Festival (Barleywine: 1995, 1992,
    1988; Ales: 1987)




    FORD's comments - Well worth the wait! About the time most beers get to the 9 or 10% alcohol range, the sweetness factor can produce a heaviness that even expert beer drinkers like myself have to adjust to. Sierra Nevada has really done their homework with this one. Has the kick of a barleywine, but it goes down like an ale. I'd easily recommend this over any of the Belgian trippels and it rivals most Imperial Stouts. Overall, one Hell of a fucking masterpiece of a beer!

    FORD's rating:

    Thanks again to Crowbar for letting me know about this one!

    Haven't seen it yet. Tragically, even the little Chevron station with the excellent selection of imports doesn't seem to carry any Canadian brews. And even up in BC I don't recall seeing Alexander Keith's. Maybe you can't get it outside of Nova Scotia?

    Hmmm, that's interesting about BC, because you can definitely get it in Ontario. Either way, whenever you do come across it, be sure to try it out :bottle:

    Just checked it out, you should be okay. BC Liquor Stores do carry it, albeit quite a bit more $$$ than here in NS.

    I'n my defunct beer thread I started with the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I love it, it's bitter and has a bit of a sweet aftertaste. The Bigfoot Ale is very good as well (as noted above).

    Got some Blue Moon Belgian White in the fridge right now. Someone suggested putting a slice of orange in the frosted mug while partaking. An interesting flavor combination!

    Gotta find that Bigfoot Ale!

    The Sierra Nevada Pale was my main ale until I came across this local fav....

    Columbus Pale Ale

    Original Gravity:
    1.046
    Final Gravity:
    1.008
    % alcohol by volume
    4.99%

    -- A spectacular celebration of malt and hops! Brewed with specially kilned Crystal malt and a generous portion of American Cascade hops for a refreshing, spicy aroma and a long dry finish. It's big, bold and bittersweet. Available on draft and in bottles.

    This brew won 2nd place in the American Pale Ale Category at the 1997 Spirit of Free Beer Homebrew Competition. It was judged to be very good, but too hoppy for style (53 IBUs, when it should be 20-40).

    Since 1992
    Type White Ale, refermented in the bottle
    Alcohol 5 % alc./vol.
    Color White
    Taste Wheat, with subtle spices, and citrus
    Aroma Lightly fruity and a hint of citrus
    Shelf Life 2 years
    Serving Suggestions Poultry, fish and shellfish, salads and fresh cut vegetables

    In the spring of 1992, Unibroue marketed its first beer on lees, the Blanche de Chambly. It contains 5 percent alcohol and is produced from an interesting blend of unmalted Quebec wheat and pale barley malt, to which spices and natural aromatics are added, along with a light hopping.

    The Blanche is only partially filtered so that it retains the full benefits of its natural ingredients. This gives it the cloudy appearance that was characteristic of pale beers in the Middle Ages. While it is naturally of a champagne color, it appears white because of the fresh yeast in suspension.


    this beer is one of the best around!!! I know it's available in certain beer store in ontario and possibly in some other provinces too.

    TRY IT!

    heres another one...

    Since 1994
    Type Triple fermentation Golden Ale, refermented in the bottle
    Alcohol 9 % alc./vol.
    Color Blond with a golden hue
    Taste Smooth, slightly tart with the balanced flavors of wild spices, malt and hops
    Aroma Wild spices
    Shelf Life 8 years or more
    Serving Suggestions Gourmet dishes, fine cheeses and desserts

    In February 1994, after 18 months of research, Unibroue launched La Fin du Monde (the end of the world). It is a 9 percent alcohol, triple fermentation beer. This type of beer was originally developed by the monks of the Middle Ages to be served on special occasions. La Fin du Monde is a deluxe beer made by triple fermentation and a unique way of straining the yeast. This method produces an unexpectedly subtle flavour. With its champagne-like effervescence, it has a vigourous presence in the mouth, which accentuates its strong personality. Slightly tart, with the balanced flavours of wild spices, malt and hops, it belongs to the class of great Trappist beers and, in this regard, is a North American first. At meals, it can replace white or red wines and enhances the flavour of most dishes.

    This beer is brewed to honour of the great explorers, who believed they had reached the end of the world when they discovered America.

    How to Taste Beer


    There is more to certain beers than simple refreshment. Unibroue brews craftsmen beers for savouring.

    Drink less, drink better !



    Just as in wine, one tastes beer to appreciate its qualities. One observes the color, the head, the aroma and the bouquet, the multiple aspects of its flavour, the aftertaste and so on.

    The beer must be at its ideal temperature, according to its particularities, served in a glass corresponding to its style (no drinking from the bottle !), in respect to its density and its carbonation. The appreciation of beer also has its rituals, unfortunately all so often unknown.

    Start by assuring that the recommended glass for the style of beer that you are about to savour is clean without compromise. If not, the dirt will be a nuisance to the persistency of the foam and will alter inevitably the flavour of the beer. Be sure the beer is not too cold, but at ideal serving temperature to appreciate it at its just value.

    Never seen Magic Hat in this part of the country, but as impressive as their website is, I'd guess that theyput as much effort into their beer. If I see any of their stuff, I'll give it a shot. :beer:

    Tonight's entry is brought to you by the Lagunitas Brewing Co. of Petaluma CA.


    Though Lagunitas has info about many of their beers listed on their website, this seasonal release isn't listed, for whatever reason, so we'll have to skip the official company bio this time and stick with what this reviewer can tell you.

    Sirius is a golden ale, typical of spring and summer seasonal releases, but that's where the comparison ends, as the others are generally lightweight entries that taste better than Bud/Coors/Miller but are about as effective for party time.

    Sirius, like all micros is purity in a bottle. The ingredients read "malt, hops, yeast, and water. Right below that is a great motto: "Life is Uncertain. Don't Sip"

    With 7.6% alcohol though, you don't want to pound them too fast. Unless you know someone else is driving.

    Great for a golden ale, but not enough to make me switch from the usual IPA's and Stouts.

    Gotta couple for you.

    Cool Utah jokes as well and this is real beeya too.

    First off is Wasatch. I believe they are our oldest and first microbrewery in Utah? I remember drinkin' it as far back as highschool, so that would put it at about twenty yeeyas old.

    Anyway, they have "Polygamy Porter" which is a good jab at the Mormon's. lol.



    Wasatch ain't bad but I've never drank much of it cos it has always tasted too "microbrewed" IMO. Even in bottles. However, they are our oldest so all due respect.

    Secondly is Squatters. They do have some damn tasty beeyas. Well, as a take off on "St. Pauli Girl" they launched "St. Provo Girl" a few years back. Seriously, it IS a great beeya. The joke with "Provo" is that Provo is an actual city here. Tis' Utah's second largest city. It's the home of Brigham Young University (BYU) and ALL sports fans are extremely aware of that institution.

    The campaign for St. Provo Girl was soooo hilarious in this state cos they made so many sexual innuendos on billboards, newspapers, magazines and what have you. lol.

    Here's the "infamous" "Nice Cans" ad when they started canning the beeya.



    I met and partied with the St. Provo chick during the Olympics in 2002. Dumber than a sack of rocks but she did have "nice cans" to look at nonetheless. lol.

    Damn, she ain't wearing the Holy Undergarments, is she?

    I looked for some of that Polygamy Porter when I was driving through Utah a few years ago, and somehow I never found any

    Can't beat their slogan though... "The beer to have when you have more than one"

    I've got SN Pale and some Heiny in the fridge, but that Sirius review from last week has got me wanting to try it. Haven't seen it anywhere though.

    I found the Bigfoot at this place called Viking something or other.

    They have 450 types of beer for sale!!!!

    Also picked up some Atlantic Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale...

    ...but I would only recommend it for those who REALLY REALLY REALLY like blueberries....It's cool to try though...kind of a novelty.

    But if you ever drank enough of this to get drunk....God have mercy on your soul.

    I think I'd be begging for God to have mercy on something else entirely.

    Blueberries affect me like Ex-lax, so that doesn't sound like one for a party beer.

    That's exactly what I was thinking would happen after drinking more than a couple of these in one sitting...

    ...been drinking one a day, but I will leave them alone after the 6 are gone.



    We've found the perfect drink for The Scatologist!

    Sounds good. I haven't attempted home brewing as of yet. Don't have the space for it at present

    And no new reviews tonight... Just chilling with some good ol' Redhook IPA (aka Ballard Bitters)

    Tonight's entry comes from the MacTarnahan's brewery in Portland Oregon....



    Brews: IPA (India Pale Ale)
    What's the India in IPA?

    Woodstock IPA is an authentic wood-conditioned India Pale Ale with the distinctive flavor of the British Empire’s original. Traditional IPAs were distinguished by rich hops, which were generously added to preserve the beer during its long overseas voyage between England and India. They were also characterized by striking oak flavor, as the beer made its journey in wooden barrels. Woodstock IPA matures in oak and is dry-hopped during the aging process to bring you the classic style.

    Specs: Original Gravity 15.5, Specific Gravity 1062, Hop Bitterness 45 IBU


    FORD's review: My initial disappointment with this one comes from the fact that the website calls it "Woodstock IPA", a great name in my opinion, but it's nowhere on the bottle. So they take a hippy name off and replace it with an elephant..... that's enough to make a Liberal think twice right there!

    But I already bought the beer, so I might as well drink it, right?

    It's an enjoyable ale, but not very hoppy, in terms of IPA. And the whole purpose of IPA's historically, was the extra hops, as the brewery notes above.

    Very drinkable, but not recommended for hop fiends.

    FORD's rating 1/2

    Tonight's entry comes from the Dogfish brewery of Delaware....

    Indian Brown Ale
    A cross between a Scotch Ale, an I.P.A, and an American Pale,
    this beer is well hopped and malty at the same time.
    Our Indian Brown Ale is brewed with Aromatic Barley and caramelized brown sugar.
    7.2% ABV 50 IBU
    available year round, 12 ounce bottles & draft
    approx. 230 calories and 23 carbs per bottle

    Descriptors: Notes of molasses, coffee, ginger, raisinettes, chocolate
    Food pairing reccomendations:Balsamiv vinaigrette salads smoked meats,
    duck confit, braised ribs, venison, proscuitto, stews
    Suggested serving glass: pint glass
    Comparable wine style: Shiraz


    FORD's review: I've heard about Dogfish brews from east coast beer conniseurs for some time now, but didn't think I'd ever see any out this way, so curiosity alone justified the $9 I paid for this 6 pack. To call this the best Brown Ale this side of Newcastle would be a true statement, but it doesn't do justice to the beer.

    The name "Indian Brown Ale" was an odd choice, since (aside from what their ad copy says above) I don't find much resembling an IPA in this brew. Definitely malt is favored in this one, and as far as the brown sugar goes, even Mick Jagger would have to agree, it tastes so good....

    If I ever make it to the East Coast, this brewery is a scheduled stop

    For you East Coasters. check em out!

    Are you guys familiar with this one?

    http://www.stella-artois.com/landing.html

    "Stella Artois is a Belgian lager beer that has been brewed in Leuven, Belgium by InBev (formerly InterBrew). Although the Artois brewery was established in 1366, the brew as it is commonly known today did not arrive on the scene until 1926. That year, the Stella Xmas beer was brewed for the first time. Colloquially known as Stella (the Latin word for star), it is the most popular premium lager in the UK beer market, and is being heavily promoted as an international brand by InBev. In many parts of the United Kingdom and Ireland Stella Artois has acquired the nickname Wifebeater. The exact origins of this name are not clear, but presumably this name likely arises from a famous scene in the play A Streetcar Named Desire, where Stanley (played by Marlon Brando in the film version) yells "Stella!", the name of his wife, as he begs her to return after violently beating her. It is also an urban myth that the drink makes one more prone to violence and yobbish behaviour, as typified by a subculture nicknamed 'Chavs'

    Stella Artois is the title sponsor of the Queen's Club Championships, an annual tennis tournament held in London.
    [edit]

    Summary

    * Alcohol: 5.2%
    * Its widely known advertising slogan is "Reassuringly Expensive".
    * The slogan is conveyed by way of very costly and lengthy, filmic television and cinema commercials directed by renowned movie directors such as Jonathan Glazer.
    * A television advertising campaign famously used Verdi's The Force of Destiny, previously used in the film Jean de Florette.
    * Famous for its 'Stubby' beer bottles (25cl)
    * It is also available in 44cl, 50cl & 56.8cl (pint) cans, 33cl, 66cl, and 1 litre bottles, and 500cl draught kegs
    * Stella Artois is brewed in Belgium and the United Kingdom, as well as other countries.
    * Many British people believe that it has a higher alcohol content than any other beer on the market.
    * Commonly known as 'wifebeater' because of the famous Marlon Brando performance in Streetcar Named Desire, where he has beaten his wife, then pleads for her forgiveness shouting "Stelllllaaaaa!" Coincidentally, this line and performance was notoriously mimicked in one of the most popular episodes of the Seinfeld Show in the 1990s as the beer also began its ascent in popularity. (Note, this nickname is not to do with its alcohol content, as most other premium Belgian beers are 7.5% or more (e.g. Duvel, Westmalle, Scaldis/Bush and Chimay.)"


    I've been drinking a lot of this lately...along with Hoegaarden, Heineken, Budvar and Tuborg it's definetely one of the best I've ever found. (This is how much I can say about beers..."it's good, it's not good" ahahaha)

    I've seen Stella & Hoegarden in a couple of stores. Thing is though, if these are "big label" beers overseas, chance is they'll be distributed by a big label (Bud/miller/coors) over here, which means it will be a watered down version. Even Guinness, good as it is, is a pale imitation of what they actually make in Dublin. I can get Belgian ales made locally, or in Colorado that are averaging 8 to 10% alcohol content, so I'm a little suspicious of an allegedly authentic Belgian brew at only 5.2%.

    Sounds like a corporatized "import" to me

    For us it's usually so that if we find a beer like the danish Carlsberg in the supermarket, as a cheap six-pack version, it is brewed and watered down in Finland...but if we buy it from the alcohol stores, we usually have the original version...and it's always the real thing.
