Ten More of the Strangest Beer Names
Here are 10 more beers who’s names are just rather strange. Enjoy and drink up!
Smells like biscuity malt and crisp hops.Taste is very well balanced. Malt to start then a nice bittering by the hops. Very drinkable.This one’s a great sessioner.Young’s Dirty Dick is probably more popular between Catholic Priests I’m sure. Starting the night with this will crank up your taste buds, while ending the night with it will probably have you wish you had ordered a Newcastle instead.
This dark, medium bodied ale offers the drink-ability of a much lighter beer. The inviting chocolate and malty flavors fade into a slightly dry, silky smooth finish. Why have just one? 4.0% alcohol by volume. “Why have just one?”
This beer pours out black as the night sky on a moonless night with little to no head, no lacing just black. Smells very malty, burnt malts and hops, dark chocolate.Taste almost exactly like it smells, lots of nearly over roasted malts with the hershey special dark chocolate flavor, with a very nice hop finish.It’s certainly drinkable throughout an evening but i think if you take down more than the elegantly packaged bottle than you might have a problem
Billed as “the bitterest beer in America,” this India Pale Ale is clearly the brainchild of someone disenchanted with the notion of till death do us part.
Pale golden in color with a hoppy fruity aroma. Big hop flavor up front complemented by medium body and hoppyness mid-pallet. Finishes with a characteristic lingering bitterness.
SkullSplitter is a Scottish robust ale with a distinctive flavor (8.5% ABV). It is named for Thorfinn Hausakluif (SkullSplitter), the Seventh Viking Earl of Orkney. The Orkney Islands lie off the northern tip of Scotland at latitude 60 North. For 600 years they were ruled by the Viking Earls who owed allegiance to Norse Kings.
Initially sweet, with tastes of pale and caramel malts. Light herbal hints quickly followed by a large dose of juicy Red Blush grapefruit and orange fruitiness complete with a touch of citric acidity. Sure, the hop bitterness certainly remains, but it’s much, much more manageable now. Drying, bittersweet finish. It’ll kick you in your mouth!
This beer typifies the spirit of the craft brewing community. Vinnie Cilurzo of Russia River Brewing and Adam Avery of Avery Brewing realized they both had beers named Salvation. Showing a selfish disregard for the financial health of America’s lawyers, the two brewers decided that instead of suing each other, they’d team up to brew this bold beer.
Originally named Prescription Pills, the brewery was forced to change the name, lest someone think it was a pharmaceutical. Golden Shower saw one release before the government folks figured out what they’d approved. The beer is now known as Golden Era.
The brew of choice for mountain bikers, and adventurous types worldwide. (Are you excited now!) This fiery red ale is not for the weak at heart. It originally started out as a Scottish red ale but has taken on flavors of its own. This is a very complex recipe using five different grains to achieve its unique flavor. The caramel malt used is a mixture of Belgian Caravienne and Hugh Bairds Crystal malts. Red Rocket is a full bodied, hoppy brew which finishes on the pallet with caramel malts.
