This beer, Sugar Cookie, is a Sugar Cookie-inspired Blonde Ale from Sugar Creek Brewing Company. This Christmas Blonde ale is from Charlotte, North Carolina. It weighs in at 8% ABV. I believe this beer is a seasonal-only offering. This beer pours a golden color with two fingers’ white heads. The head fades steadily into a thin halo of bubbles. The aroma is sweet with spices/sugar. The flavor is not far off from its smell. There is sweetness, sugar creaminess, and spices, and its had a smooth overall flavor. Then it comes to a sugar cookie finish. Yes, that is right, it passes over your tongue, and it all comes together and tastes like a sugar cookie. The aftertaste is like eating a delicious sugar cookie that lingers until the next sip. This Sugar Creek Brewing Company Sugar Cookie is an A. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and would recommend you do the same. It is not heavy and has a nice holiday touch without weighing you down. It’s good throughout an entire pint. I would surely go back to it for this beer. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
I’ve not had a lot of beers from Divine Barrell Brewing, located here in Charlotte, North Carolina. I have had a few here and there. I haven’t had enough to know if I like Divine Barrell. This beer is We’re Out of Peanut Butter, Frank. This beer is an American Porter with peanut butter. It comes in at 6.8% ABV. This Porter pours black with a three-finger beige/tan sticky head. The aroma is peanut butter, sweetness, and toasted/roasted notes. The flavor is of a sweet roasted/toasted peanut butter and light bitterness towards the back of the tongue. This Porter finishes with a slight bitter-toasted peanut butter flavor. Then you get a light peanut butter aftertaste. This beer is not like a peanut butter cup. Overall it is more like a toasted peanut butter candy bar. We’re Out of Peanut Butter, Frank is not terrible. You get the peanut butter, but everything else is just average. I give this American Porter a C+. It’s a fine peanut butter-flavored Porter, but that’s all. That aspect is not bad. If you see this beer don’t pass it up. But I wouldn’t go out just for We’re Out of Peanut Butter, Frank. Please be kind, stay safe and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
