Bad… Ass… Muthafucka… The beer! I got this one at Ramirez Liquor in Boyle Heights California but this one is sold in many places and even online. A very awesome tribute to the movies of Samuel L. Jackson, Quentin Tarrentino and even the newer movies like Super Bad. Paying homage to the awesome comedy and cult flicks of the 90’s to now, but mainly Pulp Fiction. When I saw this, I nearly shit my pants! I said, oh hell yeah! This has to go on the website. Now it’s here with all of it’s glory!! Samuel L. Jackson/ Jules Whinnfield, it’ll get you drunk…. Mmmmm mmmmm bitch!
Very nice fancy coffee notes, Irish cream, Dark Chocolate, bakers chocolate, dark fruit raisins, blackberries, boysenberries, currants, dark cherries, tobacco, cappuccino, vanilla, earthy hops, roasty coffee notes, fruit cake notes, toffee, hazelnut, fudge cake and brown sugar!
Roasted Coffee beans, fancy coffee, Cappuccino notes, Milk chocolate, Dark Chocolate, bakers chocolate, plantains, vanilla, Irish cream, caramel, earthy hop notes, anise, licorice, mint, molasses, dark fruit raisins, blackberries, boysenberries, currants, dark cherries, leather, tobacco, oreo cookies and cream hints, dark chocolate fudge cake, coffee cake, fruit cake, brown sugar, charred notes, pecan pie, hazelnut nectar and toffee.
Finishes with some dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, earthy hops notes and roasted coffee. No alcohol in the taste. Dark full body, creamy, rich, and smooth mouthfeel and an easy to moderate drinkability despite the ABV.
That’s a damn tasty beer! Good Mutha’Fn choice! There is so much delicious coffee, chocolate and dark fruit notes. Something Jules himself would probably drink for breakfast. I can say despite the label and the nostalgia of Pulp fiction, overall the beer is magnificent. If you are a fan of Samuel Jackson and/ or Pulp Fiction and/or of craft beer, do yourself a good one and find this beer. I think you will enjoy it!
Multiple characters from Pulp Fiction, Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop and BellDandy from Ahh! My Goddess were used in this beer pairing mainly for the whole theme of Pulp Fiction. The aspect of Pulp Fiction in general (the comic strip, not the movie) fits the pairing as well as not all the stories came in color. Some came in black and white. Like the way this label with Jules is presented with Purple and White. I can explain the details about how I think it pairs more but this one I will leave to you as the pairing itself says it all.
