A quick note before we start: You might be asking your self why this cigar post looks like a tasty beer review. Well, that’s because it IS a tasty beer review! One of my other passions is beer, and after consulting with David, he was more than happy to let me post some beer reviews up as well. So, occasionally I’ll divert my attention from reviewing a cigar and do the same for a beer that has caught my eye. I hope that you enjoy my brew reviews and look forward to hearing your comments on the different beers I post up. Also if you have any suggestions for brews that you would like me to review, leave a comment, and as long as I can find it I’ll gladly put it on the list to review. So without further ado, here is my first brew review!
Brewery: Brewery Ommegang – Cooperstown, NY
Style: Belgian style stout
Price: $15.99 for a 750ML bottle
Behind the Brew: For Brewery Ommegang’s 10th Anniversary they brewed a special ale called the Chocolate Indulgence Stout. It was so popular that they brewed it again in 2008, which is the batch that is currently available on the shelves (and going fast!). Listed under Seasonal Brews on their site, it appears to be a beer that they will be releasing at least once a year, which is good news for us!
