Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad 2011

Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad (BBQ)

User Rating:

Take The Sixth Glass add some Bourbon barrels and cherry puree and what do you get?  BBQ!  As Mark Starr so eloquently put,  the name plays tribute to the great culture of KC, Missouri in that Bar-B-Que is a staple.  I personally think this beer embodies what a barrel aged beer should.  It allows the base style […] ...

Boulevard The Sixth Glass

Boulevard The Sixth Glass

User Rating:

“In the sixth glass sits the Devil himself; he is a little well-dressed man, most charming and pleasant. He understands you and agrees with everything you say. He even brings a lamp to light your way–not to your home, but to his. There is an old legend about a saint who was ordered to experience […] ... [Read more]

Ale Asylum Mercy Grand Cru

Ale Asylum Mercy Grand Cru

User Rating:

What drew me to this beer was the label.  It reminded me of that beast Balrog in Lord of the Rings giving me the impression that this beer might be pretty menacing.  Come to find out the only thing that was beastly about this beer was the abv clocking in at 9.5%.  The flavor was a little one […] ...

Avery The Reverend Quadrupel

User Rating:

Avery Reverend is a Belgian Quadrupel Ale brewed in Boulder, Colorado. The brewers tell us that “The Reverend, was created in tribute to the life of Sales Mgr. Tom Boogaard’s grandfather, an ordained Episcopal Reverend.’ I’m always looking for connections between beer and my vocation. My experience with this beer fits with the marketing line description as “strong willed, assertive […] ... [Read more]

St. Bernardus Abt 12

Sometimes one gets caught up in life. Things seem chaotic, stressful, overwhelming. You open a St. Bernardus Abt 12 with such anticipation and it sprays all over the place, spouting out the top like Old Faithful and onto your carpet, seeping in with the old yeast smell that your wife loves so much. And you […] ... [Read more]

Ommegang Three Philosophers

User Rating:

I am not a big lite beer fan, unless it’s with pizza so when I found Three Philosophers Belgian Quadrupel I was excited. I was initially disappointed. The beer is a beautiful color of deep but not dark brown. The second sip was smooth and velvety, and I encountered a slight hint of cherry and […] ... [Read more]
