After a long, long wait we have finally received an order of BrewDog beers. Due to the recent buyout of Anchor Brewing by BrewDog the order took much longer than normal and we were only able to get 4 of their beers. Hopefully we will be able to add more in the future.
BrewDog 5AM Saint 7.00
Garnering a whopping 96 points out of 100 at ratebeer.com this 5% abv is often described as the best red ale around. I know that if I had to pick one desert island beer that this would be on the top of my list
Malts: Marris Otter, Crystal Malt Hops: Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops
BrewDog Hardcore IPA 8.00
You thought 96 out of 100 points was impressive? Hardcore IPA is rated 99 points out of a hundred!
This Imperial/Double IPA is "hopped to hell, then dry-hopped to hell too."
According to BrewDog "This explicit ale has more hops and bitterness that any other beer brewed in the UK. This is an extreme beer rollercoaster for freaks, gypsies and international chess superstars."
All we know is that we are damned glad to finally get it in.
BrewDog Tokio 22.00
Holy crap! Tokio is an 18.2% "intergalactic fantastic oak aged" Imperial Stout. Make sure to bring some friends down with you to help drink and pay for this one.
This imperial stout is brewed with copious amounts of speciality malts, jasmine and cranberries. After fermentation BrewDog dry-hops this killer stout with a bucketload of their favourite hops before carefully ageing the beer on French toasted oak chips.
Yes, I know the bottle at the left says "Tokyo". The batch we received is from a previous naming of Tokio and trust me this is a good thing. This beer could be laid down for years with it's insane level of alcohol.
BrewDog Paradox Smokehead 22.00
This whisky cask aged imperial stout spends a full 6 months in cask before being bottled. It seems to me that there is quite a bit of whisky left in those casks as well. You won't easily forget this beer.
