Multilayered by Angry Chair Brewing

I love sweet stouts. But can a stout be too sweet? Is it even beer at that point? The allure of craft beer was originally flavor, the bitterness, the hops. It was something different than the same ole same ole from the big macro breweries like Budweiser. I remember drinking a Newcastle and thinking I […]

Because, Stout 06 by Triptych Brewing

So, this entire week has been dedicated to Triptych Brewing stouts. So, yes, we’re going in numerical order with these beers. I’ve already discussed 04 and 05 in previous blog posts (I’ll link them below). And this is the last for now. Because, Stout 06 is a “Strong Stout featuring Peruvian Cocoa Nibs.” It pours […]

Maybe not Calusa phenomenal, but a close 2nd. The only stout I’ve had was a campfire stout, and it was glorious (link below). So, when my buddy Niles made […]

Death Roll by Red Cypress Brewery
