12 Beers of Xmas – Day 12 – Firestone Walker Sucaba (2015]

Well, the last bottle is out of the fridge and it doesn’t seem like it’s been 12 days since we opened the first one (actually it’s 13 for me, but who’s really counting anyway?).  I’m getting started a but earlier tonight so I can fully…

12 Beers of Xmas – Day 11 – Brewdog Paradox Heaven Hill

We’re on to the penultimate day now and I’ve been deliberating which of my final two bottles to have tonight.  In the end, I plumped for the Paradox.  This is a pretty big beer at 15%, perhaps not so much by Brewdog standards, but potent…

12 Beers of Xmas – Day 9 – The Lost Abbey Cuvee De Tomme

12 Beers of Xmas – Day 5 – Brewdog Abstrakt AB:12

On to day 5 and I’m away from home with some pre-selected bottles for the next couple of days. Tonight I’m going for the AB:12, which is an 11.2% Belgian Black IPA with Scottish berries and barrel aged.  This was released 3 years ago, so…

12 Beers of Xmas – Day 4 – Wild Beer Co. Wineybeest

Wild Beer two days in a row, just because I can 🙂 Another well presented 750ml bottle with wax sealing hides a Burgundy Pinot Noir barrel aged version of their imperial stout Wildebeest.  This one’s been in the ‘cellar’ all year I think.  It’s promisingly…
