Finch’s Fascist Pig – Not your standard Red Ale.

Finch's Fascist Pig

Finch’s Fascist Pig

 

Brewery: Finch’s
Beer: Fascist Pig
ABV: 8%
Rating: 4/5

 

Personal Review:
Need someone to cuddle with? Cozy on up to this malty masterpiece. This red ale is a bit of a rebel, but it has a soft spot. It defies a category of beer filled with generic, overly malty brews, and spices things up with some dry-hops (Palisade and Zythos). One sip and you’ll feel safe in the company of this brew. It will patiently listen to your worries and when you’re done venting, it will give you a light smack on the cheek to knock you out if it.

 

Technical Review:
This beer pours a slightly cloudy, amber color with a surprisingly white head in comparison to the color of the beer.
The aroma is sweet and fruity with hints of citrus accented with biscuit notes.
The mouthfeel is smooth with just a slight thickness.
The taste compliments the aroma. It is sweet with a slight biscuit flavor. You will also notice an apricot fruitiness.

The initial taste steps aside to reveal a nice finish. The finish is light and crisp with an inviting citrus flavor that perfectly follows slightly heavy malt body.

Finch’s Secret Stache Stout – Review

Finchs Secret Stout… shhhh

Finch’s Secret Stache Stout

 

Brewery: Finch’s
Beer: Secret Stache Stout
ABV: 5.3%
Rating: 5/5

 

Personal Review:
This is a stout that will punch you in the mouth and still have the decency to tuck you in at night. It takes you on a journey that you will not readily forget. A journey through a desolate, burnt wasteland, and out to the promised land of sweet vanilla. If you have a mustache why not soak some up and keep it secret for later? I won’t tell.

 

Technical Review:
On initial pour this brew is a very dark brown almost black color with a tinge of red noticeable. The head is a medium brown color which dissipates within about 3 minutes.
In the aroma there are noticeable dark roasted grains with a slight hint of oak, and distinguished sweet vanilla notes.
The taste is decidedly of darkly roasted malt grains with a slight earthy nuttiness.
The mouthfeel is thick and velvety.
The finish is a slightly sweet vanilla chocolate flavor.
