To Øl F^&* Art – This Is Advertising

Posted: June 20, 2015 in Quadrupel (Quad), Reviews, To Øl

I’ve been trying to drink more beers that aren’t American. It’s hard, especially since so many beers from the US are so tasty. This beer caught my eye on the shelf (mostly due to the profanity). I’m shocked that it got label approval. When I cracked it open, I didn’t even know what style of beer it was, so here goes nothing.

ABV: 11.3%

Style: Quadrupel (Quad)

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “F^&* Art – This is Advertising which is a 11.3% quuuuuuuuaaaaadrubel packed with hops to balance the usually sweeter beer. The yeast gives notes of acidic apples, which blends well together with the hops.”

Random: I thought the squirrel on the label was cute.

This beer poured with a three finger, tan head that dissipated slowly and left lots lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown color that was slightly cloudy. Despite this and the dark color, there was still some carbonation visible. The nose had dark fruit (specifically raisins) with Belgian yeast. Booze was there too with some apples and a touch of hops. The taste was smooth with raisins, plums and yeast. There was still an apple note, although the hops got a bit lost in the dark fruit (whcih wasn’t a bad thing). The body was very thick and chewy with high carbonation. This beer didn’t drink nearly as high as the ABV. The finish was lengthy and filled with currants and raisins. This was an expensive beer at $19.99 for the bomber ($.91 per ounce). Even though it was pricy, I thoroughly enjoyed the beer and would have it again.
