Black Storm Imperial Stout

Taken April 15th, 2009 by The Beertographer

Beer: Black Storm Imperial Stout
Russian Imperial Stout 11.5% ABV

Brewery: The Brew Keeper (North Ridgeville, OH)

No chance in hell would anyone ever be able to guess this was a 11.5% beer. Sheesh. I let it warm for about 15 minutes and then decanted into my new Dogfish Head "Shaped" Pint glass. It's got a nice dark mocha head and a roasty coffee aroma. It's insanely smooth and not overly thick, almost porter-like in its mouthfeel. Not sure of this brewery's distribution, but I would definitely seek out more from them.


12 Homebrews in 12 Months

Taken September 16th, 2008 by Jeff Quinn

By September of 2008, we had already spent a year homebrewing. It certainly didn't feel like a year, but we did our very first brew in September 2007. So when our one year anniversary came around, we realized we still had at least one or two of each of our brews. We had a massively huge ceremony with over 100 different speakers to reflect back on our wonderful year of twelve brewings. The conclusion? We still have a ways to go. Our best beers were the ones we made with extract kits, rather than our all-grain. That's ok, though. We've probably done about six since these, and each one is better than the last.


March 2008 Beer Inventory

Taken March 15th, 2008 by The Beertographer

In March '08 I decided to see exactly how much beer there was in my apartment. This was the result. A good majority of it is homebrew, as you might notice. This may not be impressive to some, but without a cellar and with only a (small-ish) 2 bedroom apartment, this is a pretty overwhelming amount of beer. Thanks to Heather for putting up with it!
