Last weekend, a few Ohio beer geeks got together to pay tribute to our favorite Wisconsin breweries, namely New Glarus and Central Waters. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time, and we had some pretty epic bottles to crack open. Special thanks to Josh Stevens for hosting, keeping track of everything that was opened, and providing the above photo.
I won’t bore you with a bunch of text, so here’s some photos I shot: [Read more...]
Dark Lord from Three Floyds is like the quintessential Midwest “big beer”. It’s huge (13-15% ABV), it has a cool label, an awesome name, and a must-attend event that is centered around its release every year in April. Plus, death metal starts playing when you crack one of them open. Most people think that the wax is for preventing oxygen and identifying the year it was brewed, but it’s really there to keep the death metal at bay.
Recently, my pal Gus from Professional Beer Reviews decided to crack open the vertical he had been working on, plus a few of the earlier vintages and a couple of barrel-aged Derk Lerds for extra brutality. Thanks, Gus! Gus is working on a video for the tasting, so make sure you check it out when it comes out!
Dark Lord Vertical – 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Cognac Barrel Aged Dark Lord (2012) Cognac Barrel Aged Dark Lord De Muerte (aged with ancho and guajillo chili peppers) (2012)
Plus a bunch of other incredible beers (more on that later)
As you probably already know, Dark Lord Day occurred last Saturday at Three Floyds. It was nothing but good times (video coming soon). What made it even better was the bottle share that occurred the night before at the Hampton Inn in Munster, Indiana which is just down the road from Three Floyds. It’s sort of a tradition to have a ridiculous beer tasting on the eve of Dark Lord Day, and I can safely say that this year was the most epic tasting I’ve ever been to. A really incredible amount of rare beers were opened and shared, and I would like to thank anyone and everyone who was apart of this!

Here's the table... this wasn't even all of the amazing beers that were popped
A bunch of drunk'uns. I don't remember this being taken... A little embarrassing - haha
Weyerbacher has a few big, bold beers that are available year-round. One of these beers is Old Heathen, an Imperial Stout that comes in at 8% Alcohol by volume. Once a year, in February, they release the barrel-aged version of Old Heathen called Heresy. Heresy is literally the same beer as Old Heathen except that it been aged in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. Last night, I happened to have both of these beers on hand and decided to do an impromptu comparison. Here are some quick impressions of these beers:
Old Heathen is nice and complex stout. It’s significantly roasty, and there’s almost a rough bitter edge to it. This isn’t a bad thing, but it causes the beer to be more of a sipper than a brew you can chug. There’s a dry finish that brings a good amount of coffee and bitter dark chocolate. This isn’t the type of Imperial Stout that satisfies a sweet tooth, but it does have a lot of complexity and depth. It’s a little rough around the edges, but overall is a pretty decent beer.
Heresy looks pretty much identical to Old Heathen, but this is about where the similarities end. The aroma of Heresy is definitely a result of barrel aging, bringing notes of vanilla and coconut with the slightest bit of alcohol. This beer is smooth and easy drinking, especially in comparison to Old Heathen. All of the rough edges of Old Heathen are smoothed out and are replaces with wonderful sweetness. There are flavors of vanilla, caramel, toasted coconut, dark chocolate, and iced coffee. While still a bit of a sipper, the smoothness of this brew make it a lot easier to drink than Old Heathen. Clearly, Heresy is the victor in this taste testing.
This is a great example of what barrel-aging does to a beer. These beers could easily be mistaken as completely different beers altogether. I would definitely recommend trying a tasting like this to really get an idea of what flavors the bourbon barrels bring.
Last night, I was fortunate enough to be invited to an epic beer tasting at Brewtensils.
I’ll save all the talking to a minimum and just get right to the beer porn. I will say that there was a beer that was from 1981, and that was just the tip of the iceberg!
Here is a photo of (most of) the aftermath:
