Two men journey to the bars and restaurants of Scandinavia to find amazing beers. Always with the same question “what’s on tap?”
Christmas beers 2020
You've been waiting all year for this to kick off. It's time to get into Christmas. We start off with our sampling five beers from the over 150 Christmas beers released in Systembolaget. We have some fun beers this year. We start with Abbaye D'Aulne Christmas beer aka. Super Noel. Then it's on to O/O Brewing Winter Warmer and Remmarlov's The Winter Ale Organic. That's followed up with Ridgeway Brewing's Lump of Coal and we finish with Dugges Punch Praline. Starting Dec 1st, Advent Calendar 2020
Industrial Arts Wrench - Bierol BBA Bombo Claat
We haven't had Industrial Arts beers on the show before. When this one showed up in the monthly Kihoskh subscription box, we had to break it out. We definitely get what the hype is about. We're on the lookout for more from them in the future. It's been about a year since we last tried Bierol. This Austrian brewery has released a bourbon barrel aged version of Bombo Claat. We get into the meaning of the word bombo claat in the show. It's a fun word.
Amager Black Rainbow - Hoof Hearted Brewing Even More Tennis Elbow
Another head to head contest. Two crazy collaboration stouts. The first is Amager Bryghus and Angry Chair Brewing's Black Rainbows. It's a 12% pastry stout with strawberry, vanilla and cocoa beans. We compare that with Hoof Hearted Brewing and Evil Twin Brewing's Even More Tennis Elbow. This is a double mashed imperial stout with hazelnut, coconut and vanilla. Both sound amazing but who is the winner?
3 Sons DDH Dopealicious - Wylams Cycles of Amplification
Martin and Stefan got out hands on a can of the 3 Sons DDH Dopealicious. It's a weird one. Double dry hopped with Citra and Mosiac it tastes a lot like a belgium IPA. This is the DDH Dopealicious and not the Double Dopealicious that Martin calls it. After that we check in with one of our IPA brewers, Wylams. Cycles of Amplification tropical with Citra, Mosiac and Galaxy hops that makes you want to keep drinking it.
De Moersleutel 8719992492411 Mint Green - 8719992492428 Red
After trying the first four of the barcode series from De Moersleutel, we had to try the next two in the series. 8719992492411 Mint Green is a double vanilla bourbon barrel aged imperial stout at 12% abv. That's followed by 8719992492428 Red is an imperial milk stout with peated coconut barrel aged and milk lactose. This series continues to be impressive. These two new entries do not disappoint. We hope they keep making these beers.
Mast Landing Shake Up Your Bones - Shenk S
I don't know if we've ever reviewed Mast Landing Brewing Co on the show before but after trying Shake Up Your Bones, we need to try more. This DIPA is brewed with Nelson, Citra and Simcoe hops. It's a rich, fruity treat. Shenk is a brewery out of Bratislava, Slovakia. They've rebrewed their American Wild Ale simply called S. We're always excited to try new breweries and especially ones that make American Wild Ales.
