Saint Arnold Pumpkinator (2011)


Happy Halloween! To celebrate, I’m reviewing Saint Arnold’s re-release of Divine Reserve #9 (and setting my ringtone to Grim Grinning Ghosts, of course). I last drank this Imperial Pumpkin Stout about 5 months ago; the original bottle of Divine Reserve #9 had been aged 19 months. Now it’s been about two years since this one hit the… → Read More

Samuel Adams Cream Stout


Over at the Hops and Barley booth, the home of Samuel Adams for the 2011 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, one of the eight Samuel Adams varieties will be Cream Stout. Cream Stout is a very dark brown, almost black beer with a milk chocolate colored head; hold it up to the light and… → Read More

Guinness Extra Stout


Last week Brian wrote a fascinating article about Guinness and its history. Brian’s article mainly focused on the draught variety of Guinness, while I’ve just opened up what Guinness refers to as Extra Stout. It’s important to note that Extra Stout is brewed by the Guinness Brewing Company in New Brunswick, Canada. Yes, the labels on the… → Read More

Boulevard Smokestack Series Dark Truth Stout


Boulevard’s Smokestack Series Imperial Stout is made with English malts, German hops and Belgian yeast. Would that mean if it were to be sold in Epcot it could be sold in the UK, Germany and France pavilions? Well probably not since it’s made in Kansas City. The Roasted English malts give this beer a rich… → Read More

Young’s Double Chocolate Stout


Ordered this based on a recommendation from my friend since he knew I’m a huge fan of stouts and chocolate. From their site: Unsurprisingly for a beer from the Young’s stable, Double Chocolate Stout has been recognised as an award-winning brew on several occasions, including: Brewing Industry International Awards Gold Medal Winner 2000, Silver Medal… → Read More

Saint Arnold Divine Reserve #9 – 19 Months Later


Check out the photo from my new photography studio! It may or may not be made from a cardboard box, tissue paper, masking tape, and poster board. But that’s not why you’re here… on with the beer! I previously reviewed Divine Reserve #9 by Saint Arnold about 12 months after its release; it was still… → Read More

Guinness Draught


Many say the Guinness served here in the States doesn’t taste the same as the Guinness served in Ireland, its home country. Since I’ve never been to Ireland, I can’t say for sure whether that’s true or not. Like Boddingtons Pub Ale, this one came from a nitrogen-pressurized can. The effect is much the same… → Read More

Jester King Black Metal


Yesterday after work I met Ryan at the Flying Saucer in Houston for dinner and beer. I had this very dark brew called Black Metal by Jester King. The color certainly lives up to its name; even the head was a dark brown that mostly dissipated before I took this photo. Lots of coffee flavor in… → Read More

Saint Arnold Divine Reserve #9


Tonight, after a successful TweetWatch of Muppet Christmas Carol (thanks Ryan), I broke out a bottle of Saint Arnold Divine Reserve #9. The Divine Reserve series are limited edition single batch “big beers” from Texas’ oldest craft brewery. This particular beer is an Imperial Pumpkin Stout and was purchased over a year ago.  I have… → Read More
