Background: I found this interesting drink in…my estate! Yes, Hopeeyedidntfuckitup Ale was produced and is on tap at Casa de Tobias. I must admit the name is not creative, nor is the idea for the brew. There are multiple Vanilla Bourbon Stouts available but what sets this apart is its invention. I traversed great distances to the nearest supply depot, with a well created recipe in hand. However to my dismay, the depot had nearly none of the supplies which I had meticalisly planned for. Thus, said name was mumbled under my breath as I grabbed things that seemed to match. “What, I need roasted oat? Roasted barley; close enough, they both have ‘oaste’ in the names…” I included bourbon, and the delicate flavor of real vanilla beans in this amalgam of guesstimation.
Taste: Surprisingly good. It is often I make good beer, it is not often that part of the flavor that makes it good [to me] is not my own pride. Actually, I might hypothesize that in fact, no beer that I have made thus far went unflavored by said placebo. This brew truly is the first beer I have made in a few years of home brewing. This is certainly not a pour of Bourbon County Rare by any fathom, but alas it is good.
