What great way to start the fall with some brews from my good friend and fellow review brother, Aaron Mendiola of BeerMetalDude.com. This beer comes to us from the good people at 5 Stones brewing in Cibolo, Texas. Thanks to Aaron, I have the great opportunity to bring some of these beers to the website. Many of which have been very delicious and some supremely exceptional and unique. Today, we bring you a review of their Mr. Nibbles beer. A beer that has been made with all sorts of crazy nuts. Sure, I can recall the delicious nutty peanut butter beers and even the hazelnut nectar beers, but this…. this is taking nuts to a whole new level. Let’s take a look at this new brew, cheers!
Maple syrup, marshmallows, bananas, clove spice, cinnamon, fruit cake, ginger bread, almond joy butter, nutter butter, hazelnut nectar, pecan pie, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, vanilla, rye bread, nutmeg, brown sugar, bananas, marzipan and praline ice cream hints.
Rich Almond joy butter, nutter butter, hazelnut nectar, pecan pie, toasted pumpkin seeds, cashew cream, butterscotch, toffee, dulce de leche caramel, marshmallows, leather hints, rye bread, walnut cake, dark chocolate notes, milk chocolate, Brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, peanut buttercup notes, maple syrup, molasses, bananas, clove spice, cinnamon, fruit cake, ginger bread, nutmeg, allspice, brown sugar, marzipan, mazapan, capirotada raisin bread pudding, stone fruit peach, mango hints, dark fruit raisins, cherries, dates, Danish cream and vanilla.
Finishing with rich nutty notes, toffee, chocolate notes, cinnamon, marzipan, rye bread, toffee, vanilla, dulce de leche caramel and banana notes. No alcohol in the taste, crimson medium body, smooth, creamy and slightly chewey mouthfeel and with an easy drinkability.
Damn exceptional brew. It isn’t even barrel aged but the many points go to it for making a brown ale so complex it almost reminded me of a special Belgian Quadruple I had long ago. The mix of nuts and sweets is enough to drive someone nuts. The scary part about this is that I almost finished the whole bottle it was that damn good. Deep within the recesses of Texas and other parts of the country, people like 5 Stones are brewing beers that are damn unheard of helping people reach a special palatable Nirvana of sorts. I highly recommend you try and find this one if you live in Texas and special thanks to Aaron for the awesome hook up, always a pleasure!!
Gadget Hackwrench along with Disney’s Rescue Rangers gang were chosen in this review to go with the label furry characters. Yes, I know chipmunks and squirrels are not the same but the fact that it showed mice and a squirrel, I felt it was a great opportunity to bring it the Rescue Ranges into this pairing. This one I think works super well considering the comparisons of the woodland creatures. I also found an awesome picture with the surprised look on their faces just like the squirrel in the label is surprised about the mice. Almost like a king but in this case, Gadget would be the queen.
