Beer Review: Terrapin Moo Hoo-Chiato

by Derek Roessler •  Nov 19, 2014  •  0 comments

Terrapin is one of my favorite breweries (not necessarily top 3 or anything) and their Wake-N-Bake Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout has been probably my favorite coffee beer the past few years. They also make a chocolate milk stout called Moo Hoo, which is usually pretty good (and really good mixed 50/50 with WNB). So when I saw this Moo Hoo-Chiato which is described as a "chocolate espresso milk stout" I had to bolt to the shop to pick one up to enjoy on this week's podcast. Why one?

Stone Lucky Bastard Ale* Review

by Derek Roessler •  Nov 6, 2014  •  0 comments

Red Brick Thick Silky Review

by Derek Roessler •  Nov 5, 2014  •  0 comments

As I’ve never really been enthralled by Red Brick’s work, I bought this beer almost exclusively for the name and label.  Sadly, the name and label are the two best things this beer has going for it. As reviewed on the podcast, this…

Victory Red Thunder Review

I’ve had plenty of beers from Victory, most of which I’ve enjoyed. I’ve also had beers that employ red wine, like the Dogfish Head Red and White, which I found quite good. The Victory Red Thunder is their Baltic Porter aged in red wine…

Beer Review: Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut Break

by Derek Roessler •  May 9, 2014  •  0 comments

Reviewed on the April 29th edition of the Cheaters Never Win podcast, the Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut Break is a meal of a beer. Following the success and popularity of Imperial Biscotti Break, the man behind the brewery realized not many Americans know what the hell biscotti is, and thus attempted to cater to our xenophobia by making a beer with doughnuts instead.
