Closing, this is one of the seasonals that I do hunt down from Oddside Ales.  I am guessing it is a seasonal.  I would love to hear the story behind the beer name.  Is it named after a guy that wanted a IPA to drink at his party?  Or is it name for a guy that parties all the time?  These are great questions and the only way to find out is to ask the brewery.  There is a nice balance from the citrus to grapefruit notes in this beer.  IPA’s are normally heavy with grapefruit notes.  This beer lives up to both of them.  I like it and I will get more. There is a ton going on in this beer.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Closing, I am not a fan of hot peppers being added to beer.  With that said, I picked up this beer by mistake.  It is not a bad thing.  I have give them credit for trying something different.  This is a great beer but not my cup of beer.  I highly recommend this beer if you love hot peppers.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Closing, this is a great beer.  I love the play on words for the name of the beer.  There is some aroma notes and tasting notes.  The malty backbone is a perfect match with the hops picked.  The caramel and tropical fruit notes are a nice blend.  This beer might be a sipping beer but I could see some experienced hopheads saying that it is kind of drinkable beer.  I do not think I had one bad beer from this craft brewery.  This brewery makes good beers and this one lives up to that line.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer, which is Chocolade Koffie Stout, from Oddside Ales.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on this Michigan craft brewery, you their history.  If you have not read those posts, please, do so to get to know Oddside Ales.  Let us get into this stout.

It has a jet black color with a tan to light brown color head.  The aroma had a heavy coffee notes.  The taste profile of this full body beer is a chocolate to heavy coffee notes with a dry coffee bean aftertaste.  It is kind of drinkable to a sipping beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.oddsideales.com):

If you’re a fan of chocolate stouts this is the one to try! A great mixture of thick, sweet, dark chocolate fudge, and light espresso bean undertones will immediately appeal to your senses. Your taste buds will dance when the creamy stout takes flight. 6%ABV

Ending, I am a pretty big fan of this brewery and I will try anything new or beers I have not had yet from this brewery.  I am a pretty big fan of stouts, porters, pale ales, and India Pale Ales.  I do not like my coffee but only if it is in my beer.  I know this craft brewery knows how to use their coffee bean.  They shown me that in Bean Flicker Ale.  To me, there is something a little off in this brew.  I do not know if it is the stout or the coffee bean is over the stop.  I am starting to think that I might have picked up an old beer.  The problem is there is no code dates on their bottles.  I recommend this beer but I hope you get a better bottle.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it! \m/

Cheers!

In closing, I love this brew as far as the taste profile.  However, I am really not a huge fan of the dry hop bitter finish, it is a little too powerful for me.  I normally do not mind but today I was little turn off on it.  This is a great beer and I know many craft beer and hopheads drinkers will love this beer.  I love the hops they picked in this brew.  They did a great job designing the malty backbone.  I highly recommend this brew, plus, it glows in the dark.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/
