Birthday Cake by The Dudes’ brewing

Rating: 6/6
Birthday Cake by The Dudes’ brewing is a 4.9% ABV American Stout brewed with Cake flavors.

Draft Only release, well, at least for the mean time. When I tried this one at the Dudes’ brewing, I simply thought it was amazing. I am not sure what process they used to get the cake flavors in there as extracts are something that not a lot of breweries use. Regardless, sometimes it can cause beers to “taste fake” but this does not taste fake. Some people may not concur but I for one really loved this one so much I wanted to bring it home for analysis. Thanks to the Dudes’ draft canning line or Crowler system, I was able to bring a can home. For a beer that takes super close to chocolate cake I definitely wanted to bring it to the site. Let’s have a look, cheers!

No alcohol in the taste. Dark body, smooth, creamy, velvety and watery like mouthfeel. Very easy to drink as well.

Let me just say that the reason I thought this beer was damn exceptional was mainly because this is pure liquid cake. The complexities are mainly variations of the cake flavor. While not cloying, the light ABV and semi light body makes up for this ever becoming cloying and yet giving rich cake flavors. I am not sure if natural cake flavors were used to make this but however the process, it is insane and I hope to see this one see a public release! Highly recommended
Anime Corner:
Asmodeus and Astaroth from Shinrabansho were used in this pairing as I wanted mainly to pair with the pastel colors of cake. That and the fact that this beer is evil! Well not evil but its so sweet and awesome it should be evil. Yes, I could of gone with an actual cake pairing, since there is no label, I wanted to think of abstract colors and since these 2 are favorite characters of mine.

Pulp Addiction Juice Box Series “Blood Orange” by The Dudes brewing is a 6.5% ABV Amber Ale brewed with Madagascar vanilla beans, Ecuadorian cocoa nibs and Blood Orange Zest

Orange Whip? Orange Whip? 3 Orange Whips.
Here’s a brew that will “A Peel”to you! A tantalizing blend of cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, and hand-zested California Blood Orange Flavors makes this dude semi-sweet yet silky smooth. Every sip is bursting with creamy, chocolaty, citrusy flavor – and at 6.5 percent alcohol by volume, it’s sure to get your blood pumping. Orange you glad you picked this up?


Huzzah! At last, the sweet sweet nectar of chocolate orange delight has finally been canned. While I did want to do a review of this one for a very long time since it’s release on taps, I finally got some cans from Ramirez Liquor after I saw they had it canned. I remember this beer very well and while it is very delicious off of the tap and especially on nitro, I want to see how it fairs in cans as many who cannot make it to the Torrance California area but are able to pick up this one will want to know. So let’s take a look at this one shall we?

Oranges, tangerine, grapefruit, blood orange juice, tootsie rolls, bubblegum, Milk Chocolate, Orange Creamsicle, brown sugar, vanilla, caramel, pecan pie notes, caramel,gummy bears, coriander spice, stone fruit peaches, earhy notes and honey.

Orange, chococolate, vanilla, earthy notes, caramel, biscuit bread, honey and grapefruit hops. No alcohol in the taste, Dark Amber light to medium body, creamy, silky, smooth and refreshing mouthfeel and easy to moderate drinkability.

Love this beer! Perfect! I am glad I was finally able to bring this one here to the site for review. Not many breweries make a chocolate orange creamsicle beer, but the Dudes got this one on lockdown. I know the Bruery’s version is not available anymore but this one is no doubt the next best thing especially since it is chocolate orange flavored. Highly recommended to those that love orange creamsicles.

Anime Corner:
Nadia Cassel from Metal Slug was brought here for a first time review as I wanted to pair her colors and tenacity in the game to the beer. She pairs well with this one as her hair color and eyes go well with the beer label. The bubblegum she blows is similar to the orange drinking from the straw but also the bubblegum and tootsie roll flavors of the beer. Overall citrusy and sweet.
