Bells Hopslam (Bottled on 1/12/2011)| Beer Geek Nation Beer Reviews Episode 146

So here it is. One of the most sought after beers of the year. This bottle is from batch 10127 which was bottled on 1/12/2011. Does it live up to the hype? What the review to find out. Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell’s Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell’s repetoire. Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes.

Beer Geek Nation presents San Diego Beer Vlog: Deschutes Black Butte XXI Video Beer Review

This masterpiece is a tribute to Black Butte Porter, the revolutionary Deschutes Brewery beer that has excited beer enthusiasts since 1988.

Our brewers enhanced Black Butte XXI by adding some Theo’s Chocolate cocoa nibs from Seattle, dry-hopping it with 100 pounds of Bellatazza’s locally roasted coffee, and then aging a portion of it in Stranahan’s Colorado whiskey barrels. These regional partners provided quality artisan ingredients that give this commemorative beer a truly handcrafted complexity. Released as Black Butte XX in 2008 to celebrate our 20th Anniversary.
