It’s a Nerdsense Drinks Blind Versus Battle! We’ve got one of the most well known in the left corner, Founders KBS! In the right corner we have a true contender to throne, Weyerbacher SMS!

You may be asking yourself, “But Shaun, Mike hate’s stouts with coffee, he won’t like that shit”. You are correct! This is why we have our good friend Corey guesting with me!

Mike was kind enough to pour these for us so we can go in blind!

Style: Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Coffee
Container: 12oz Bottle
Glassware: 4oz snifters

Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout

Style: Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Coffee and Chocolate
Container: 12oz Bottle
Glassware: 4oz snifters

Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #144 Treehouse Julius

Choo Choo…all aboard the hype train! We’ve finally got our hands on some Julius!

Style: DIPA
Container: 16oz Can
Glassware: Treehouse Teku’s
Notes: Bursting with pungent American hops, Julius – our flagship American IPA – is a bright, juicy beer filled with flavors and aromas of mango, peach, passionfruit, and a melange of citrus juice. A soft, pillowy mouthfeel and rounded bitterness ensure Julius will never tire the palate – a true joy to drink! (6.8%)

Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #143 Treehouse Doppelganger

We’ve got a doppelganger in our midst!

Style: DIPA
Container: 16oz Can
Glassware: Treehouse Teku’s
Notes: This beer is an imperial version of Alter Ego. It is intensely kettle and dry hopped to produce a pungent and flavorful Double IPA that is super pleasant to drink. It is simply and easily described as a juicy and dank citrus bomb. (8.2%)

Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #141 Wicked Weed Dark Arts (2016) & Opinion

This ones a little long so bear with us.

We really didn’t plan on doing a Wicked Weed opinion-piece video but we had a bottle of the 2016 Dark Arts in the fridge for awhile but kept putting it off due to whatever reason. I was grabbing another beer to review and saw it laying there. I mentioned it to Mike and he just said “We’re doing it” or something along those lines. I hope you like this review with our opinions sprinkled in here and there. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Style: Wild Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
Container: 500ml
Glassware: Teku’s
Notes: The 2016 version has been aging since Oct 2015 in Rum barrels after being brewed with honey, brown sugar and agave (15%)
Rating: 5/5 (“Insanity coming out of this bottle!”)

Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #140 Revolution Deth’s Tar

Happy Star Wars Day!! We’ve got Revolution’s Deth’s Tar and some special guests to celebrate Star Wars Day!

Style: Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
Container: 22oz Bomber
Glassware: Teku’s
Notes: Deth’s Tar is a barrel-aged Russian Imperial Oatmeal Stout. It is brewed with a host of wonderful specialty malts, flaked oats and oat malt to impart a rich, silky mouthfeel and deep, complex malt flavors and aromas reminiscent of dark baker’s chocolate, fresh brewed coffee and caramel candy. (11.4%)
Rating: 3.75/5

Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #139 Fort Hill Wilbur

Bacon Beer! Ok, it’s not bacon beer but we do love a good Rauchbier!

Style: Rauchbier
Container: 12oz Can
Glassware: Flutes
Notes: A lighter take on our Rauchbier, Wilbur is subtly smoky and delightfully drinkable. Often referred to as our “Bacon Beer,” this smoky lager features campfire aromas and hints of cured meat. Lucky for vegetarians, Wilbur’s robust flavor comes from beech-smoked barley malt from Bamberg, Germany… not bacon. It pours a straw yellow (5.9%)
