It's getting colder out so the time for more and more dark beers is here. I like coffee a lot, so I thought this would be a good choice... and I was right! 5BEANS smells of strong boozy coffee, but the taste is a little different. You'd think at 10% that you might get an unpleasant alcohol kick in the taste, but that's just not the case here. The flavor is a delicious mix of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. I really like this one and might have to get some more this winter.
This is one of my favorite beers. It claims to be a hoppy lager on the can, but drinks more like a double IPA. Great fresh hop flavor without the bitterness.
Whenever I go to a restaurant, I like to try something unique or something that goes with the restaurant's theme. I was at Olive Garden for dinner and the one Italian beer they had was Peroni. I like Peroni, but it does have that classic green bottle skunky flavor and smell that may turn some people off. I think it's a good light beer, like a skunky Stella Artois.
