New Beer Blog Central Waters Satin Solstice Imperial Stout


image

In this beer blog, we are going to sample some Central Satin Solstice Imperial Stout.  If you read my earlier blog on their Imperial India Pale Ale, you know the history of this small great brewery.  If you have not, please read the first part of that beer post.  Let us get into this awesome imperial stout.

It has a black color without a head on the beer. The smell is a chocolate, toffee to some coffee to the beer. The taste is between chocolate to slight coffee notes. This beer is very drinkable and dangerous because of the ABV.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

The smooth creamy stout and a cracking fireplace are the perfect answer to a wintery evening in Wisconsin.  The rich coffee flavor compliments the “warm fuzzy feeling” you get from the abundant alcohol.  Enjoy in moderation.

Closing out, this is one of my favorite imperial stouts on the market.  It comes at a really good price for a six-pack bottles at $9.99 at most stores.  It is at the same price as the rest of their everyday beers.  It is even more a value to everyone asides the brewery.  Most breweries charge more their imperial  stout.  I love how easy this stout is to drink with the nice chocolate, with a little coffee and toffee.  This is an awesome stout and I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Central Waters Mudpuppy Porter


image

In this beer blog, we are going to check out Central Waters Mudpuppy Porter.  I realize I have not written up a review on this porter.  If you read my earlier blog on their Imperial IPA, you know a little something on this small brewery from Wisconsin.  If you have not, please read the first part of that beer blog.  Let us get into this beer.

This porter has a nice dark brown to black color with a semi head on it. There is a slight coffee to chocolate smell notes from the beer. The taste is chocolate to a little toffee notes with a dry coco aftertaste.  This porter is pretty drinkable and that is even in the summertime.

Here is a description from the beer bottle and their website (www.centralwaters.com):

MUD PUPPY PORTER
A robust, yet surprisingly refreshing porter, Mud Puppy is a favorite of dark beer lovers. Characterized by a thick, rocky head and luscious chocolate-like nose, the malty profile is balanced by liberal hopping for its style

In closing, I love this porter.  This porter is pretty much always in my refrigerator.  There is a nice balance in this porter.  It is an extremely drinkable porter.  There is not too many drinkable porters on the market.  You can drink this beer in the hottest summer days.  It has a nice chocolate to some coffee notes.  The aftertaste wants you to go back for more in a good way.  There is nothing else to say about this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Blog Central Waters Illumination Double IPA


In this blog, we are going to take a look at a beer from a small brewery from Amherst, WI called Central Waters.  This brewery is powered by solar power.  They are very green on everything with packaging and energy use.  This brewery has been in business since 1996.  Mike McElwain and Jerome Ebel are the founders of this brewery.  Their packaging is very dull and boring, however, we do not judge on packing just the beer inside.  They brew several different styles. The one we will be talking from Central Waters called Illumination Double IPA (India Pale Ale).

This beer in the glass is a cloudy light copper color.  When smelling it, you will get a strong piny smell from the hops in the brew.  As far as tasting the beer, it is over load of circus to earthy sweetest with a very dry aftertaste leaving in your mouth.  I really do not like this beer because several factors.  The one thing I do not like, there is not enough malt backbone in this beer.  The other thing I do not like about this beer is the over hop in the beer.  This beer is another cookie cutter of all the rest of American Double IPAs out there.  I am not saying all are bad but there are better ones out there.  However, after killing this beer, the plus for this beer is it is a great value for the price you will be paying for it.

Here is a descripation from the bottle:

Can you say palate wrecker? This Double IPA comes in at 108 IBUs, as hoppy as it gets with a mouthful of citrus flavors.  Grab one today and Illuminate your taste buds.

Here is a few sources to get to know this brewery better:

Setting up the bill, this is not a beer I will run out and get when it comes out.  It is a seasonal four pack from Central Waters.  If I am in the mood and I see it, I will drink it.  If there is another Double IPA at the bar, I hate to say I will drink that.  Just because I did not like this beer.  This does not mean that you will not like this beer.  This brewery cannot be judge on this beer and you should not judge them for this beer nor blog.  They do brewery some awesome beers.  This one is not one of their best ones.  Enjoy it! Drink it!  Metal it!

Cheers!
