Day 12 – Late Night Karate Kicks Coffee Stout

On Monday, December 12th I decided to follow in my sister’s footsteps by seeing what I would be drinking later on in the day, first thing this morning.  Since I’m glad that decision was made, a double IPA was on the agenda.  As the day went on, I decided to make a new rule… if…

Day 11 – Schlafly Coffee Stout

On Sunday, December 11th I opened the beer for today and for 3 days in a row now, it is once again a great one.  This stout with coffee has 5.7% alc./vol.  If you are a fan of coffee stouts, this is a must to try.  Schlafly is located in St. Louis, MO and they…

Day 10 – Breakfast Stout

Even though I have only unwrapped this beer, this one is amazing!  Another favorite that I will always continue to buy.   The smooth taste of this is great.  The double chocolate coffee oatmeal stout tastes amazing and is by Founders Brewing in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  It has 8.3% alc. by volume and 60 IBUs….

Day 9 – Chocolate Milk Stout

When I opened the beer for today, I was pretty ecstatic to see 4 Hands Brewery’s Chocolate Milk Stout.  I have already tried this beer before, but it is definitely one of my own favorites.  It’s a beer that is great to drink during the cold months.  The smooth taste of this beer is amazing….

Day 8 – Synchopathic Wild Sour Series

On Thursday, December 8th I opened today’s beer and it’s called Synchopathic Wild Sour Series from Destihl Brewery out of Bloomington, IL. It is characterized as a dry-hopped sour ale. As I tasted this, it definitely has a sour taste at the end, but it also has a cider-like flavor, too. This beer is one…

Day 7 – Fresh Squeezed IPA

Wednesday, December 7th is here which marks the 7th beer to try in the Advent box… I believe I have found a pattern… Non-IPA, IPA, Non-IPA, IPA… because today is just that.  When the tissue paper was unwrapped, and my prediction was true for the pattern, I sent a text to my sister saying I…

Day 6 -Victory At Sea (Imperial Porter)

As this is a later post, waiting to drink this beer has been well worth it.  Ballast Point Brewing Company out of San Diego, California makes Victory at Sea, which is a Porter with coffee and vanilla.  Alc. 10.0% by volume.  If you are a fan of porters, this is definitely one to try at…

Day 5 – Dale’s Pale Ale (IPA)

Day 5 is here and so is Dale’s Pale Ale which is brewed and canned by Oskar Blues Brewery in Colorado.  At Alc. 6.5% by Vol, this is definitely an IPA that you don’t want to miss.  Me on the other hand, as one that does not care for IPA’s, decided this would be a…

These days in December are going by quickly!  The beer for day 4 is Option #2, which is an imperial milk stout brewed with coffee beans.  This is brewed by Rock Bridge Brewing Company in Columbia, Missouri.  This is 9.2% and tastes very good chilled.  This imperial stout has a smooth taste and you can…

Day 3 – Phantasmagoria Double IPA!

On December 3rd, I opened the third beer which is a double IPA.  As a beer lover, IPAs are definitely not my favorite at all.  I do not recall if I had ever tasted a double IPA though, so since today was the day to do so… I gave it a shot.  This beer was…

Day 2 – Neapolitan Milk Stout!

On December 2nd, the Neapolitan Milk Stout 6% was opened.  When I smelled this, it reminded me of ice cream – you could definitely smell the strawberry flavor.  As I took the first sip, I tasted the hint of strawberry in the milk stout and at the end, a dark chocolate flavor.  So far this…
