Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2011 The review finally 
10th-Feb-2012 01:25 pm

I hope I will inspire you a little ;) Happy drinking :D



So, on the 7th of October 2011 I went to the Beer and Whiskey festival with Henrik. It was my fourth time (I think) And his first. We tried 35 beers. Not bad for being just the two of us ;)
We met some friends but we mostly hang out alone.
Henrik was mesmerized by all the foamy goodness :D
We did not take pictures ... just a few Henrik took with his phone...

Here is my review finally after 4 months. Better late than never ...




Many of these beers I've tasted and reviewed here before. Some of them in this link:
http://lantichristo.livejournal.com/170965.html





Last NOTE: my reviews don't make a LOT of sense or are any close to a real beer review but i think it is fun to just copy here what I wrote on my paper ... The ratings are both mine and Henrik's. A stands for Alexandra and H stands for Henrik (duh) ...

so here we go ...

Somewhere here we took a long break to eat :)


This picture I find interesting cause behind me there is this group from Havana Club.
On the second floor of the venue they had the whiskey and other alcoholic beverages that i guess are sponsors ... WHO pays a ticket to the Beer and Whiskey festival to drink fucking Havana Club? Stupid!

There in my hand I have Stone Brewing Arogant Bastard

Creme Brulee (Imperial Milk Stout)


Oh my GOD!
Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, creme and an  ending with more vanilla in an orgasmic vanilla finish! Perfect!
I go a lot of it on my dress when a fat bastard pushed me and it kept on smelling beautifully and vanilla-y even the next day!
Magnificent beer!

A: 5!!!
H: 4

Strömlolms
Malakias



My Lord I died and went to smoked heaven! EXTREMELY smokey, coal BBQ, roasted hay. Whiskey barrel woody strong hints! Fantastic beer if you are into smoky/whiskey stuff!

A: 5!!!

Nøgne Ø Imperial IPA

Too sweet for an IPA

(interesting ... I wonder if we were in a bad mood or something .. I'd like to give it another chance ..)

Heresy Weyerbacher
Imperial Stout


Nice sour cofee. Easy drinker.

Non complex, good bitter, quite simple. Bit boring. Gone and washed quite fast.

A: 2,5
H: 4

-------------

Julnarren

(Also known as Hantverksbryggeriet Vinternarren)

Kind of perfumey, weird, sour-sweet. Something about it was off.

Raasted Festival IPA

Super bitter, intensely hoppy, pumpkin seeds. Good stuff!

A: 4
H: 4
------------------


Raasted Grilløl

Hmmm I didn't write much about it in my notes. Just that for some reason I was ecpecting smokey taste ... However it was quite grassy and nicely bitter. A good beer.

A: 3
H: 4

--------

Gudelös

My favorite Danes. Drunk and reviewed quite a few times before


A: 5
H: 5

---------------

De Molen
Vuur & Vlam


Yes this is a bloody great beer! I will buy it and drink it over and over. However I think I am a bit more demanding.Becoming more and more of a beer snob I'm afraid. High quality beer must give high performance! No less is accepted ;)
Lots of hops and caramel and malty goodness ... however it is missing some kind of kick to make it worth its money. I haven't figured it out yet ... too much alcohol taste? Hmmm I need to re-review ...

A: 3,5
H: 4

-------------------


NOTE
I do not trust our rating in the last 3 beers. I knew my taste buds had fallen asleep and I wanted to go. Henrik really negotiated with me and I decided to stay a bit more, but only cause I was so impressed with this really great Swedish brewery (the one with the Malakias lol)... we were quite intoxicated and it was like after 7 hours of drinking so ... I don't know ... the beers were good but ... the highest rating? hmmm I don't know ...
I must taste again ...
