Oskar Blues Goodnight: 8.5 – This was listed for high octane and it’s a bit more alcoholic, but this solves the issues where some reds are a bit too tart. This though has gravitas, and quite frankly it’s fuckin delicious. I got this at a bar, and quite frankly I’m glad that we do this site. I feel like others would see the can, and dismiss it out of hand – which is sad for who great the beer is.
Price Average: Oskar Blues Goodnight $13 for 6-Pack
Editor’s Note: So this is not a challenge post. We are still doing the challenge, but having passed the halfway point the finds are now much harder.
Old Engine Oil Black Ale: 6.0 – That tastes exactly like you would expect a beer called old engine oil to taste like. It goes down easy – there’s a bit of porter flavor, it’s nearly flat in carbonation, and the color is exact. If honest I am not actually a huge fan of the beer drink wise, but I admire the honesty in the name to bump it up a point.
Price Average: Old Engine Oil Black Ale $4
Warsteiner: 1.0 – That’s really quite awful. There’s not a defining aspect of it’s awfulness beyond tasting like what I imagine wet socks to taste like. I think the part I hate the most is how the name doesn’t remotely match to the taste.
Another gift to the lounge (yes all the gifts are scotch, don’t make a big stink about it we like scotch – don’t ruin this for us). Anyway this is a Speyside, and of recent memory it’s actually kind of a good Speyside. There is Talisker Storm, but that’s a uniquely well done scotch even for Talisker, not just the Speyside region.
McEwan’s Scotch Ale: 4.0 – So there was a scotch ale (which is a beer type I adore) that we mostly hated – called Wet Willy. Now that was actually hated simply because it was so basic and average. However this is more like Old Chub, not only is it a not good scotch ale – it’s actively bad. However take that 4 score with the mindset that even a bad scotch ale is still just a supbar beer.
Okocim : 3.0 – That is a beer I guess it’s really just a generic Pils but it has so little there that I kind of actually hate it. I will admit that the pirogi’s I had at the Polish restaurant with this were much better though.
Price Average: Okocim $7 for 4-pack
Here we have a tequila with a deer on it. That makes no more sense to me than it does to you friend. (Okay I mean to be fair the white tailed deer does actually live all across America from Canada to Mexico, but in a choice of those 2 countries you would take Canada every time) Any way not to spoil the review, but this is actually a tequila that we like in case you were worried considering how we’ve been bashing them lately.
