Tonight is the 16-year Lagavulin because I made it through the week without anything more around me exploding, crashing, or falling apart, which is a markedly better trend than last week. So the world is burning, but it turns out my house is not.
If you ever want a whiskey that reminds you of the campfires you make when in the woods, Lagavulin is for you. If, on the other hand, the taste of smoke bothers you, stay away from this fellah, because he's pretty much made of the stuff.
"This is a Coconut Stout and You Want It" by Westbrook Brewery. (10% ABV, 20 IBU;. 4.06 on Untappd).
I really like coconut stouts and porters, but they can be hard to balance. This one has a bit more alcohol taste than I'd like, and might be a touch sweet... but I can't disagree with the name for tonight at least.
It's a lot less helpful descriptor than chocolate or coffee or bourbon barrel aged - but I really like coconut in general . They range all - Oskar Blues "Death by Coconut Irish Porter" was even sweeter than this latest one and was like drinking a dark chocolate coconut haystack candy. NoDa Brewing Coco Loco Porter, brewed with Cocoa Nibs & Coconut was a typical chocolate porter but with a hint of coconut. And with OBPs toasted coconut porter it was hard to tell coconut was in it (but easy to tell it was a great porter).
Think I've done this one before. It's cheap German beer but I'm boycotting Russian (go F Yourself) beer for some reason. Nothing remarkable but it's cheap nice enough for what it was. 6.5/10. Options were limited rated as it will do.
Beer consumption is way down. Just buying 1-2 a week.
Random supermarket find. Not as pale as most of my generic Eurolagers.
First taste was amazing. Very sweet as far as beer goes. I bought it because big the colour of the can and the price ($2 usd approx). Also like my beers in the 5-7% range.
Very easy to drink not a beer snob but identified the malt taste immediately. Can says something about caramel. Reminds me of that Lithuanian beer I found but sweater.
Probably a bit to sweet very easy to drink. Not unpleasant but borderline. I'm gonna be generous and rate it a 9/10. Haven't even finished Igor but feeling the hit. No hop taste whatsoever more malted and sweet. Would recommend 2.4 standard drink a can.
Downside is it is a sweet beer. Caramel/malt/sweet aftertaste enjoying the slight buzz. Or it might just be a beautiful day. Adding this one to my short list.
