This week’s craft beer is brought you by 3 Floyds Brewing Company. Based out of Munster in northern Indiana, this double IPA rocks.
How’d it look?
Awesome. It was a beautiful amber color that looked even better on the camera. A great head retention topped off the glass.
Fruity with a hint of citrus. Drinking each sip revealed just a little more about it’s taste profile each time. Flavorful explosion with the start, velvety smoothness throughout, and easy bitter after taste to top it off (or gulp it down). The flavor profile helped mask the high ABV in this DIPA.
Like I was sniffing a sweet bouquet of citrus hinted fruits. The aroma helped seal in the taste from start to finish with each sip.
I’d drink it again each and every time. This thing kicked (my) ass. The bomber was a perfect fit for this brew. Two glasses is all you need to appreciate this beer. Watch thefull review here!
A stout befitting of a king indeed! This black-as-the-characters-hearts craft beer tastes incredible and smells just as great! As part of a collab between Brewery Ommegang and HBO, this brew kicks ass!
How’d it taste?
The first thing that struck me was the malt. Mild taste, but you could still pick it up. There were even some notes of chocolate, too.
The oak flavor was present at each stage from start to finish and was complimented by a licorice bite as well.
It was a medium-thick mouth feel and the aftertaste wasn’t all that bad, either!
“dang, dude” is all I can say about that. The aforementioned oak and some chocolate esters were the dominating factors in this brew.
You could smell some of the malt as well as a mild hop bitter which you couldn’t taste.
Considering this was a bargain-bin buy, I’d say it was pretty great!
I’m not even a G.o.T fan and I don’t intend to start, but I whole-heartedly recommend picking it up for yourself and giving it a try.
