Year of Beer Paintings – Day 143

The daily beer painting is of Storm King Imperial Stout by Victory Brewing Company.  To say the least, this beer is very flavorful.  To do it justice, I would compare this beer to a lightning strike to your senses.  The first sip from the bottle is charged with bitterness, however, as the original shock settles and the beer aerates, the flavor mellows.  After an hour, this beer is like sipping a cold, hoppy, chocolate-flavored coffee.  The straight IBU overload is balanced out in time by the dark grains. An electrical storm comes in strong with thunder and lightening.  This beer is an electrical storm of hops, and like a storm changing the weather, this stout exploded on my tongue and affected my palette.  This beer is a 9% heavy-hitter, so don’t take a sixer to the beach if you expect to have an evening.

Victory, you brewed up one hell of a stout!  I am impressed; a stout that can make my head turn doesn’t come along that often.  Way to go, and keep up the good work! Your beer appeals to my taste!

Year of Beer Paintings – Day 126

The Year of Beer progresses.  Every day I write about beer first thing in the morning, and then I go to my studio and paint a beer painting… or two.  What a weird job!  Today’s daily beer painting is of Troegenator Double Bock from those righteous bros at Tröegs Brewing Company.  This is by far the best-tasting doppelbock I have sampled this year.  May is doppelbock season, so every Spring I am reminded how much I like this style of beer.  Some breweries are non-traditional and release this as a winter warmer, and I can see why.  This brew is full-bodied, rich, and smooth, and has an overall complex character full of sweet spice.  No wonder it has traditionally been brewed at the end of spring when winter reserves were low, and was consumed during fasting periods.  This brew does an empty stomach good!

Way to be brewers at Tröegs!  I love this beer!  If only it was available in Alaska, I would drink it every spring!  Thanks, Rich, for sending me this one!
