When it comes to Belgian beers, I either love them or I don't. The flavors are just too complex to leave room for any gray area. This Derrickman Dubbel is good, and it's even more special knowing that as I'm drinking it, it's gone. It was a good beer, and I rated it accordingly. What'd you think - Derrickman Dubbel leave you gushing?...

Fast forward a few days, and I just got home from SpindleTap's tap takeover at Hughies, and a friend of ours had a Brash You've Got Red on You while we were there. As he drank it, I asked what he thought, knowing I had a few waiting for me at home. He said he was disappointed. Call me weird, but a bad endorsement often intrigues me more than a good one because I wanna try whatever it is, and be able to say you're wrong! So I...

This No Label 5th Anniversary Barleywine marks their 6th anniversary. But wait, it's the 5th anniversary beer? It seems as though they say on it a while, but it was worth the wait.

This is a very flavorful beer that is very smooth and light feeling. You could say drink this all summer long, and in a place where it feels like summer 80% of the year, that is very important! The only beer I would compare this to is...

Karbach Quintuple IPA is is more complex than an angry woman. It's brewed with 5 different hop varieties, 5 different types of grains, and 5 different fermentables. It's a beer they brewed to honor their fifth anniversary, and it's completely ridiculous. The flavor changes drastically as it warms up, and everything intensifies. As you take a sip, it starts off somewhat boozy, then it gets...

BB15 is definitely a winter beer. Since it's special and only comes in limited releases, some folks are even stealing it out of the back of the store. I cracked one open, so I could write this review while it was still fresh, and I wish I woulda waited a bit. BB15 starts off mild, all things considered. The second it hit my tongue...
