Wookie Monster by Fourscore
Beer Co.

Had to go back and revisit this beauty last night with this
being ‘stout season’ and what all… despite how nice and warm
its been. But anyway, this has been one I’ve been meaning to
review for a while, since I finally got my hands on a four pack of
it back around August I believe. I’ve left one in the fridge for
a nice night to drink and do up a review, and that is exactly what
I got for you here.

This is one of many (many) nerdy or pop culture beers I’ve
done. Yesterday I listed some in my review for
Super Villain
. So we can add this to that growing list of
beers.

As I said yesterday: “Nerd culture definitely speaks to me.
Look at my numerous beer reviews on here that are Star Wars themed,
or video game themed, or some TV show themed.Jon
Voight’s Car
Out
of Order – Blue Milk
Moon
of Vega
This
is the Way
This
is Nut The Fluff You’re Looking For
, etc. You can see Josh
also is very fond of nerd culture / pop culture and beers clashing
with his latest review – Terpenes
in Time
.â€

So instead of lamenting, and worrying about the election results
and letting anxiety run amok, and with The Mandalorian episode two
(of season two) coming out tomorrow, and since today is
International Stout Day, why not do a fun, Star Wars themed stout
for today’s blog and beer review.

After taking my dog (Leela) for a walk, which I did as a way of
pausing my work on this review – because I’m the ultimate
procrastinator, it was such a beautiful day that I had to sit out
and do some day drinking.

Day drinking and reading

So I ended up having a fantastic IPA from Stickman Brews – The
Growfather (gotta love a Godfather beer / hop pun) (don’t worry,
this will be a review soon), and then I took down the hops finally.
Then I decided to finish the last of my Wookie Monster stouts.

So what should have been done around 12 – noon – is now only
getting finished up at 5PM, and before I head over to Drew’s to
do tonight’s stream.

Which I also picked out the stouts for tonight’s stream, since
it’s International Stout Day, I decided we’d have nothing but
stouts for the stream.

tonight’s video stream

Well, minus the Wookie Monster…. since I drank that now.
Which, speaking of that, lets get to this review and finish up
today’s post!

Wookie Monster by Fourscore
Beer Co

Beer: Wookie Monster
Brewery: Fourscore
Beer Co

Style: Stout – Imperial / Double
ABV: 9%
IBU: None
Untappd Description: Brewed with malted oats, chit malt, flaked
oats and Maris otter base with a variety of specialty malts.
Conditioned on over 100 lbs of Oreo cookies, along with organic
cacao nibs and Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans along with milk
sugar. Medium bodied to restrain the sweetness, but still full
enough to satisfy. Liquid Oreo cookies in a glass with a
“managable†abv!

I’ll lean on an old favorite saying for the appearance – its
black; as black as Razor Ramon’s hair. (Not Scott Hall’s hair;
Razor Ramon’s.) This is the epitome of black, like those
materials that block all light and absorb it, like black holes, its
a silk, smooth looking black, with a very thin head to it, the head
was off white cream to slight brown. Small head but with dispersed
bubbles.

Nose to this is extreme Oreo chocolate / fudge chocolate smell.
The cacao nibs really makes the Oreo cookie smell pop. There is
some sweetness to this, like the white cream filling, you get
vanilla from the beans, Oreo cream, and the milk sugar. It ends
with a hint of the bourbon but so faint, like its drifting on the
wind. The chocolate is the most overwhelming aroma to this.

Then we get to taste….. and ohmergerrrrdddd this is amazing.
“Amazeballs†as the cool hip kids that I hang out with say….
But in all serious, this is one hundred and thirty eight percent
delicious. If you like chocolate and you like dark heavy stouts,
then this is everything you could ask for. Immediately on the first
sip you get blasted with the heavy chocolate coming from the cocoa
nibs and Oreo cookies. Heavy. Strong. Blam. Right out the gate, no
waiting for it. Then as you sip you get in that smoothness, that
silkiness, that gentle relaxing creaminess that comes from the
vanilla cream part of the Oreos, from the Madagascar vanilla beans,
and from the milk sugar. But, right at the end, it has a little bit
of a kick of bourbon, enough to make this feel boozier, to taste
boozier, to lend this like a very rich dark backbone to an already
amazing brew. This feels heavier and denser and richer and boozier
than its 9% belies, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I
really think the 9% “manageable ABV†is tucked away and hidden
because the beer feels more like a 11-12%. Its definitely not one
to pound or chugg or shotgun or crush a four pack of. But that
takes nothing away from how amazing this beer is. The flavors all
work together so perfectly well, and its so rich and creamy that it
goes down very smooth, its just so dense and heavy that you’ll
fill full from drinking one. The chocolate and the vanilla combine
perfectly in this, just like they do in real Oreos, that its so
fantastically done. Hopefully this will be brewed again because
this is downright phenomenal.

My Untappd Rating: ****.50
Global Untappd Rating: 4.15 (as of 11.5.20)

Now remember everyone, Chewbacca is a Wookie, and he is 8 feet
tall, but he does *NOT* live on Endor with 3 foot tall Ewoks.
Wookies are from Kashyyyk and live there, (or out in the galaxy)
not on Endor with the Ewoks.

Wookiepedia:
“Wookiees were a species of tall,
hairy humanoids that were
native to the planet Kashyyyk. The most
notable member of this species was the warrior Chewbacca,
Han
Solo
‘s best friend and co-pilot, who played a
vital role in the Clone Wars during
the defense
of Kashyyyk, the Galactic
Civil War
by aiding the
Rebel Alliance
in their fight against the Galactic
Empire
, and the
war
against the First Order.
They were quite strong, and were known to rip people’s arms out
of their sockets when provoked. Though being from a temperate
planet better known for its swamps and forests, they were
able to be comfortable on icy worlds such as Ilum and Hoth without any
protective clothing, including
gloves and
boots.â€

Also, Happy Guy Fawkes Day.

“Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t’was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli’ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow;
By God’s providence he was catch’d (or by God’s mercy*)
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holla boys, Holla boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
And what should we do with him? Burn him!â€
(Wikipedia
– Gunpowder Plot
.)

Also, of course, Happy International Stout Day. Hopefully
everyone has some good stouts lined up to drink today / tonight.
(And well, every day and night, because lets be honest, its always
Stout Season and Stout Day.)

Make sure to check us – myself, Rory, and Drew – on the
Knights of
Nostalgia

Peanut Butter Udder One
, that I have done a review of
