Day 10 – Cat Spit Stout/Darkstar/Fire Whiskey

It is so hard to believe we are already 10 days into the month of December… and the icicles have grown! Both beers blindly picked tonight were Cat Spit Stout and Darkstar.  Kristen’s shot was Jack Daniel’s Fire whiskey. The Cat Spit Stout is an oatmeal milk stout made by 2nd Shift Brewing, which doesn’t…

Day 9 – Hazelutely Choctabulous/Brownie

Tonight’s beer we shared… by Rogue, it is Hazelutely Choctabulous Candy Bar in a Bottle.  At 5.7% ABV, this is pretty smooth and you can taste the hazelnut.  If you aren’t a hazelnut fan, this may not be the beer for you. As for Kristen, she chose the Brownie shot – she said ‘Yum!’ to…

Day 8 – Giddy Goat/Option #2/Kinky Green

Day 8 of our Adult Advent boxes and Day 3 of it snowing here in Michigan where we are at.  With being from Southern Illinois, it still amazes me how it just keeps snowing!  I am not complaining – am only amazed… and drawn into watching the snow during the day at times.  One minute…

Day 6 – Imperial Biscotti Break/Imperial Java Stout/Apple Pie

Winter has started here in Michigan!  Seeing it snow all day was fun, and very pretty to watch – especially since I work from home and didn’t have to go anywhere.  When I decided to move up here, I was told about the Michigan winters and the snow… but I wasn’t told how big the…

Day 5 – Space Station Middle Finger/Spicy Mayan/Whipped Cream Vodka

Tonight we had an amazing dinner of venison roast… being able to smell it from outside the cabin was pretty nice! After coming back from a personal one-on-one painting instruction, it was time to eat and then blindly pick our beers for the night!  Every night I silently wish to get a good beer… when…

Day 4 – Whiskey Barrel Stout/Coffee Porter/Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

Tonight’s blind picks are a whiskey barrel stout and coffee porter.  Kristen’s shot is the pumpkin spice liqueur. Boulevard Brewing is out of Kansas City, Missouri and the whiskey barrel stout is definitely a sipper.  At 11.8% ABV, this is definitely a strong one… and you can smell the whiskey once you pour it into…

Day 3 – Yeti Imperial Stout/Vanilla Porter/Jack Daniels Honey

Tonight’s beer is Yeti Imperial Stout and Vanilla Porter.  Kristen ended up opening Jack Daniels Honey. The Yeti Imperial Stout is brewed in Denver Colorado and is 9.5%ABV.  To me, it is a bit hoppy.  Josh likes it though – says it has a coffee flavor. The Vanilla Porter is from Gonzo’s Biggdogg Brewing in…

Day 2 – Widow Maker/Uncommon Stout/Vodka

Tonight we closed our eyes and randomly selected a beer from our boxes.  Kristen opened the other shot she brought with her… The first time I had Widow Maker was at a restaurant in Caseville, MI.  Don’t be afraid of the dark it says on the side of the can. 🙂  This is made by…

Day 1 – Innis & Gunn/Christmas Roast/Stroopwafel Shot

Next year I will have to make sure to wrap the beer Josh tries a bit differently… he can tell what type of beer it is from the bottle shape apparently! Anyways, our randomly selected beers tonight were Innis & Gunn Rum Aged beer and Christmas Roast by Rochester Mills here in Michigan. If you…

December 1st! Adult Advent Box – Beer!

With Thanksgiving being just last week, it’s hard to believe that it is already December 1st!  Tonight we will be opening our first beers and Kristen will be taking her 1st of 24 alcoholic shots.  Since I’ve already made a post about her shots, it would only be fair to show all of the beers…
