Unibroue – La Terrible

 

 

Type: Abbey / Dark Ale

First Impressions: Yum, hints of coffee and chocolate, very smooth

Review: This beer has 10.5% alcohol but you would not know it from the smoothness. The mfg. website states that it could be used as a replacement for coffee and I agree, after dinner coffee that is. This is no 7am wake up call. There is no bitterness to this beer and it almost has a wine smell to it, my wife who hates beer found this to be drinkable. I don’t know if I would like it in 110 degree Texas heat but as a Fall or Winter beer this one is great.

Last Impressions:  Dark and complex. Your last drink is a good as the first. Go forth and find this beer!

Drinkability: 10 out of 10

Drunkability: 6 out of 10… It’s just too dark and too expensive to get drunk with although the 10.5% alcohol does provide a nice mellow feeling after a glass

Victory Prima Pils

 

 

Type: Pilsner

First Impressions: Pretty good, hints of lemon, a little bitter

Review: I like this beer. As you drink the initial bitterness fades and you are left with a nice, clean, and light beer. This is an easy beer to drink, almost too easy, and would appeal to a wide range of people. This is not a “knock your socks off” beer, it is subtle yet complex and very satisfying.

Last Impressions: After a few sips the initial bitterness goes away but the greatness remains. This is an easy beer to drink so be careful. Go forth and find this beer!

Drinkability: 10 out of 10

Drunkability: 9 out of 10
