    Gulden Draak Ale, Brouwerij Van Steenberge brewery (East Flanders)

    Continuing my deep dive into true Belgians. Beautiful brown color, big alcohol flavor (10.5%). A touch of bitter but not in an IPA way. Friday.

    I looked at some beer archives and couldn't find a review of this so I'll guess it's been almost 10 years since I had a Gulden Draak. My vague recall says it's a marvelous ale. You're making me thirsty with these Belgians...

    Alas, no new beers this week but did enjoy some repeats from August including an imperial gose, Mister Fahrenheit, Goo Goo Muck and Hubris for a nightcap as I type. Tomorrow, tailgate.

    It's here:

    What's in your mug today?

    I think I'll have one of these:

    https://www.epicbrewing.com/the-beer...imperial-stout

    "One Big Bad Imperial Stout with Cocoa nibs and Coffee beans. Each season's release uses a different dark roasted coffee."

    That'll work, correct?

    Been a while since Iíve had a Gulden Draak. Donít recall it being that dark at all.

    While I donít drink a whole lot of true Belgians these days, it is the Duvels, Orvals and Chimays that really fueled my interest in beer.

    Ba da bum ching! Thank you, I will now show myself to the virtual door.

    Tis the season for pumpkin beer so I visited Stella Brew and got some Pumking (previous favorite) and NoDa Gordgeous. You should really try the Gordgeous if you haven't. It definitely has the strong pumpkin pie spice aromas, but pulls it off and is incredibly smooth and refreshing. My favorite so far this year. Pumking is also a classic. I liked the Dogfish also - much more subtle. But Gordgeous takes the cake, er pie.

    I also got a growler of Von Watzdorf Morzen Lager from AMB. ABV - 5.3. I loved it! Great lager for this time of year. It reminded me of drinking a Heineken, but much better and more refreshing and balanced than a Heineken.

    It's beer season.

    Stella rocks. But, pro tip: Take a gander at the eclectic beer offerings at the new Canteen 411 next door to the Stevens Center.

    Thanks! Definitely will do.

    Also, if anybody visits Winston definitely check out Wise Man Brewing. I love their Body Electric IPA. May be blasphemy to say round these parts, but I think their beer is better than Foothills

    Wise Man makes really good beer. I finally made it to Incendiary, and their brut IPA and their milk stout are both really solid. Their only problem: They donít brew enough to do any carry-away (growler, crowler, bottles or cans).

    Beer at tailgate was good from 4PM to 630PM. Football after that? Not so good.

    Finally, tailgate brew review time.

    Lead-off hitter:

    Blissed Out (crowlered on 9/28/18)-Wise Man Brewing

    Provider: Mr. merlindevildog91-Thanks!!

    In Honor of: Tripping William and richardjackson199 (Hey, it's local for them!)

    Style: Milkshake IPA (fooled us all-see below)

    Appearance: Moderate, foamy head and cloudy with a chance of haze (looked like a NEIPA)

    Aromas: A tropical fruit Slurpee (pineapple, grapefruit, mango, orange)-smelled like a NEIPA

    Tastes: A tropical fruit Slurpee with minimal bitterness

    Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth

    Additives: mango, pineapple, blood orange and lactose (hence, the milkshake IPA)-we had to research this from the website

    Hops: Secret

    Grains: Not divulged

    IBU: 55 (also researched)-most of us thought 40s

    ABV: 6.2% (not researched-it was Sharpied on the can-we're not as dumm as we look )

    Overall impression: Very good starter beer but would also pair nicely with some mild curry dishes, I think.

    From 10/25/15:

    How do you take a good quality porter and make it better? Why, throw a few hundred gallons of it into 20 year old bourbon barrels and age it for several months, of course. I've had their BBA (non Sexual Chocolate) stout before but never this BBA aged porter which I think I procured for about $6 with a buck off coupon from Total Wine a month or two ago. Poured a dark mahogany with a creamy, generous tan head. Bourbon up front with mild dark chocolate, dark caramel and a dash of espresso aromas. Tastes matched the olfactory registry with booze prominent but not off-putting and a bit of oak and vanilla in the finish (please, no c*rolina recruiting misses comments). IBUs at 42 and the ABV is 6%. I could drink several bombers of this every winter, served lightly chilled by itself or with a slice of triple chocolate cake or oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

    Attachment 5610
    From yesterday:

    People's BBL Aged Porter (bomber dated 051818)-Foothills Brewing

    More local!

    My contribution with a huge assist to Mr. merlindevildog91 for bringing an extra of these as traders for a mixed New Glarus 4 pack of fruit ales.

    Overall impressions pretty similar to 2015 with the IBUs down a bit at 38 along with the ABV at 5.8%, both differences I'd never be able to tell without looking. This paired nicely with a hunk of medium rare prime rib (yes, we really had that at tailgate), a mixed green salad, smashed potatoes and whipped sweet potatoes. I thought this might be the winner for the evening but August West pulled out his mini-growler of Javalantern next...
