De Molen Mooi & Meedogenloos Imperial Stout-ish 10.2%

Or is Mooi & Meedogenloos (Beautiful & Ruthless) a Quadrupel-ish? Depending on the batch the label might say one thing or the other, but the beer is always somewhere between the two. It certainly starts out looking like an Imperial Stout, dark black with a nice brown head. There isn’t much in the way of […]

Kaapse Brouwers Jaapie Imperial Red Ale 9.4%

Jaapie pours bright red in the glass, with a thin white head that is gone in the blink of an eye. The aroma is red berries, sweet malt and lots of fruity esters from the yeast, and to taste you get plums, raspberries and banana from the yeast. It’s just like a Belgian Red but […]

Partizan White Russian Imperial Stout 9%

Didn’t we already do this one back in January? It’s the same label, but this is a distinctly different variant of Partizan’s excellent Stout – amped up to 9% ABV and with honey, cocoa nibs and coffee added. Just like the regular version it pours black-brown with the frothy mid brown head, but the aroma […]

Kees 50K IPA 9.4%

When we think of Brouwerij Kees we tend to think of darker beers; Imperial Stouts, Quads and complex barrel aged beers. In contrast, 50K is a seriously hopped Imperial IPA. Be careful when pouring this one if you don’t want to end up with a lot of sediment and hop residue from the bottom of […]
