Ballast Point Coconut Victory at Sea Imperial Porter | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

This Coconut Victory at Sea takes our popular Imperial Porter to another place. We added sweet roasted coconut to our robust perter brewed with Caffe Calbria coffee and vanilla, the perfect compliment to this beer’s subtle roasty intensity. A favorite at our Victory at Sea Day, but it’s worth enjoying anytime you need to be transported. Read More »

Stone Double Bastard Bigger Longer Uncut (Best or Worst of 2016?!) | Beer Geek Nation Beer Reviews

Weakness Is worn on the sleeves. Boldness Is within the heart.This intensified blend of barrel-aged Double Bastard Ale is all heart baby. The weak will find it to be a telltale heart. It knows of your fallibility. It smells your fear. The heart of this beer disdains you, as it disdains all things homogenized, wimpy and uncultured. You do know the truth of yourself, no? If you hesitated to answer that, if even for a split second, that in and of itself is telling. If you aren’t capable of knowing the reality of yourself, this beer can and will take the responsibility of informing you of what you should already know. (And it you’ve lost your way in this text already and no longer are clear about what I am saying, your reading pace has exceeded your comprehension pace. Go back, slow down and ... Read More »

Trillium SIGTEBRØD DOUBLE DRY HOPPED IPA (Best Trillium Beer!?) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

http://www.twitch.tv/beergeekgaming http://facebook.com/beergeeknation http://www.beergeeknation.com http://www.twitter.com/beergeeknation Trillium Cutting Tiles SIGTEBRØD DOUBLE DRY HOPPED IPA 6.8% ABV Beer Geek Nation Rating: A+ Our latest collaboration with our Scandinavian friends at Amager Bryghus. Inspired by traditional Danish wheat bread, this beer incorporates stone ground whole wheat flour in the mash to create a rustic, bready character. For layered complexity, we added tangerine peel and raw wildflower honey into the whirlpool followed by a double dry hop of Citra/Amarillo. Candied orange, lemon and freshly baked bread permeate the nose. Flavors of tangerine peel, grape and rustic bread emerge on the palate, rounded out by a crisp and balanced finish. Read More »

Stone 20th Anniversary Encore Series: 14th Anniversary Emperial IPA | Beer Geek Nation

We even adjusted our Southwest U.S. water to summon that ageless IPA chemistry and royal sense of place. Cheers to an Encore reign for this mighty British-by-way-of-California-West-Coast IPA.

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout (2016 Vintage) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

“I really wanted to do something special for our 1000th batch at the original brewpub. Goose Island could have thrown a party. But we did something better. We brewed a beer. A really big batch of stout-so big the malt was coming out of the top of the mash tun. After fermentation we brought in some bourbon barrels to age the stout. One hundred and fifty days later, Bourbon County Stout was born-A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with a thick foam the color of bourbon barrels. The nose is a mix of charred oak, vanilla,carmel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer. It overpowers anything in the room. People have even said that it’s a great cigar beer, but I haven’t yet tried a cigar that would stand up to it.” Brewmaster Greg ... Read More »
