Lookout! Beer week is still going strong and today as a mid-week treat you’re getting three reviews in one. That’s right, I drank 3 BEERS IN A ROW and lived to tell the tale. I should probably check with the Guinness Book people and see if that’s a new world record. How about that picture? Can you tell which one I’m most excited about? Uhmm guess what, you should be too, it’s a scotch ale called SKULLSPLITTER at 8.50% ABV and if that’s not the kind of thing that inspires you to drink, I suggest you find another booze blog my friend. IT’S CALLED SKULLSPLITTER, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. If you can’t get behind that, go home and knit socks or curdle milk with your aunt or something.
These are going to be quick, so hang on, my pretties:
Smell: orange, bubblegum,
Taste: citrus and bubblegum, orange circus peanuts, bitter hops in finish
Smell: Funky apricot
Taste: Sour, barely sweet on finish…don’t know that I’d call it peach though. Tart, not what I expected. Lemony, without any sweetness.
Smell: caramel, roasted, earthy
Taste: fig, wood, caramel…full and rich
Boom, boom, aaaaand….BOOM. They all fall down. Rapid-fire reviews for you on this lovely Wednesday. Beer week keeps on truckin’. Something you’d like to see or have me cover? Let me know in the comments!

This is pretty cool. But are you planning on reviewing any beers that aren’t fruit-based you girl?
Wow, somebody needs to go back to beer school. Only one of these was fruit-based. The others just had components that smelled or tasted like fruit. Also, SHUT UP.
[…] to do something for today’s review. Seems that when I posted yesterday’s Lightening Round some lady got all upset and commented (I’m paraphrasing) “Waaaahhhh! Why are you only […]
