Unibroue- Don De Dieu Review

Unibroue- Don De Dieu Review
Description- A Belgian style strong Pale Ale with a 9% alcohol content, abbey-style triple wheat refermented in the bottle. Manufacturers Note: "Don de Dieu (Gift of God) was the name of the ship that Samuel de Champlain sailed on his mission to “explore and discover the vast and perilous land of America” in the name of the King of France. His travels led to the founding of Quebec City in 1608 (a modification of the Algonquin word “kebec” which means “where the river narrows”). Inspired by this great adventure, Unibroue created Don de Dieu an abbey-style triple wheat ale refermented in the bottle."

Nero's 1st Century Double Dark Malt Ale Review

Nero's 1st Century Double Dark Malt Ale Review

Welcome to my first official beer review, cheers! Today's review centers around a more obscure beer, Nero's 1st Century Double Dark Malt Ale.  This is an 8% alcohol ale that sells for about two to four dollars a bottle. I purchased it at Trader Joes.  Ale's are hit and miss beers for me, typically I'm not a big fan of the aggressive Ale's with bitter aftertastes, yet I'll never turn one down for a taste test.  Nero's 1st Century Ale is a beer bottled in a dark glass swingtop style bottle (my favorite, allows for partial consumption) and is brewed in Italy and imported by Plume Ridge in Claremont, California.  Since this beer isn't overly expensive, I didn't have high expectations. I drank this beer at typical fridge temp, and room temp to get the wide variety of flavor it will offer. Read more...
