New Beer Blog Roak Chestnut Head Maple Porter


image

In this winter beer blog, we are going to sample another beer from Roak Brewery.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Midwest craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Michigan base craft brewery.  Let us get into this porter.

This American style porter has a jet black color with a semi on tan color head on it. The aroma has a sweet maple notes. The taste has a slight burn chocolate notes with hints of the Michigan chestnuts in it. The aftertaste has a slight sweet maple notes. It is kind of drinkable beer.

Closing, I have been saying this again and again about this brewery.  It is all positive thing.  I love how they are doing something different with their seasonal.  I am getting tired of seeing the same old beer styles from different craft breweries.  I was happy to see Roak Brewery doing something different with Porter beer style.  They use Michigan grown maple syrpy and chestnuts.  There is a nice balance and kind of drinkable.  They did a great job on this brew. I like it. I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Enjoy it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Roak Roaka Cadabra Spiced Apple Ale

In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Roak Brewery.  It is their fall seasonal and it is called Roaka Cadabra Spiced Apple Ale.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this young and upcoming craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Michigan base craft brewery.  Let us get into Apple Ale.

It has a dark brown color with light tan color head. The smell has an apple to sweet malty notes. The taste of this medium body beer has a sweet malty to apple pie notes. There is a slight cider sweetest. The aftertaste has a dry apple finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Ending, every beer that I have from this brewery I have to give them more and more credit.  There is not too many new craft breweries that are trying to push the limits of beer.  The new breweries are doing the same beers that are already on the market.  Roak and Canton Brew Works are looking to challenge the craft beer drinkers.  Their seasonals are not same boring beer styles.  They did not want to do an Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Ale.  I was pretty happy to hear this fact.  They purchased cider from Blake’s Farm and brewed this Apple Ale.  I love the fact that they are using Belgian yeast.  I like it but I can see people loving to hating this beer. This is a great beer and I cannot wait for their winter seasonal.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

In this special beer blog, I had a chance to get by Roak Brewing a few days after their grand opening. They opened just this year but they were founded it in 2014. Let us talk about the beer.

Their goal was to do something different in every beer that they make. If it is higher alcohol level on their Devil Dog Oatmeal Stout, it is same price as rest of their beers in draft to package. It is a huge value. Mean Streets Amber Ale is a hoppy amber ale. They also have a American IPA and session IPA along with Belgian style white ale and Belgian style Dark ale in package and draft. They will have brewpub only beers in the near future.

Closing, they invested a ton of money into brewery and brewpub. They are here to make a stand in the craft beer world. Overall, their beers are really good. I am not a fan of both of their IPA’s. They are pretty weak to me. I can see some craft beer drinkers liking them. I am pretty excited to see what they will come out next. I recommend this brewery. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/

Cheers!
