Two Brothers Brewing Monarch White Beer

Two Brothers Monarch

Two Brothers Monarch

An anniversary beer for Two Brothers, and in limited production, if you want to try Monarch White Beer, you’ll have to pounce when you see it!

Very pale yellow color. Cloudy, as it should be. Delightful aroma of lemon, orange, and coriander. Flavor is not quite as citrusy as the aroma. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear there is some smoke going on here. It’s a little different than most witbiers. More focus on the wheat and oats than it is the coriander and orange peel. Those are there, but subtle.

I like it. Good balance, good taste, enough twist on the style to make it unique.

Grade: B

Two Brothers Northwind Imperial Stout

Imperial Stouts aren’t exactly known for being demure. And with a name like Northwind, I expect this offering from Two Brothers to have some punch.

Pours like it should. Black with a dark brown head. In love with the aroma, charred wood, vanilla, and dark fruits. Surprisingly smooth and creamy. The flavor isn’t bludgeoning, but what is there is tasty and well balanced. Deep roasted malt, burnt marshmallows, and eventually toffee.

Not the biggest Imperial Stout out there, but quite tasty. Quaffable, to say the least.

Grade: B

Two Brothers Cane and Ebel

Two Brothers Cane and EbelIt’s not just the clever name of Two Brothers Cane and Ebel and intrigued me, but I’m starting to become a fan of Ryes, as well. And you might be thinking, “But Chad, it should be Cain and Abel, right?” Right, but the eponymous brothers of the brewery are Ebel. Like I said, clever.

Very attractive deep copper color with a decent, sticky head and tons of hops in the nose. It’s not has heavy as you might think. The main flavor is a spicy rye with some subtle vanilla and a big hop punch at the end leading to a dry, tart finish. There’s some orange in there, as well. I’m noticing some sweet, toasted bread, too.

The 7% ABV warms a bit, and this is certainly bold, but I really like the rye in here and the well balanced,complex flavors.

This is a good one and makes me want to try more from Two Brothers.

Grade: A

Two Brothers The Bitter End

Two Brothers The Bitter End

The redolence of Two Brothers The Bitter End promises a balance of malt and hops. Thankfully, the taste complies.

The light butterscotch from the malt coats the mouth, while the hops provide the requisite kick at the back end. And as promised, there is some bitterness in the finish, too.

This isn’t the most complex brew, but it’s tasty, boasts a great balance of malt and hops with neither being overpowering, and at just a tick over 5% ABV, it’s a great session beer.

Solid, if unspectacular.

Grade: B
