How the hell did the Tasmanian Devil become one of the biggest Looney Toons characters? I mean, he speaks like he had twelve strokes and usually is a prick and is trying to eat one of the better characters so I just don’t get it. For those of you out there who don’t know who the Tasmanian Devil or “Taz” is, just look on any trashy 40 year old woman’s shoulder blade or any douche-y older guys bicep and you’ll probably see his image in all of it’s faded horribly tattooed glory. Fun fact: I have always wanted to visit Tasmania for no particular reason other than being able to say that I have been there and also to see a Kiwi bird. That’s a pretty dumb fact but oh well. I had no fucking clue what kind of beer this was until I looked it up but I must say that I am a fan of this here strong ale. This has a mix of malt and floral hops to start with more sweetness and almost a nuttiness than any real bitterness before just a slight bitterness joins in with an almost mossy type flavor before mixing together to close. It’s a breath of fresh air tasting a style that really isn’t popular in today’s market and even though my mind hasn’t been blown, my taste buds appreciate something different more than Tom Holland appreciates the fact that the last Andrew Garfield Spiderman (I can not wait for Homecoming!) sucked a bag of dicks. If you are looking for something out of the norm but still worth the pickup, snag a bottle of Tasmanian Devil and spin as fast as you can in a circle and puke your guts out then drink this whole thing down to get the full experience. I don’t give a fuck how experienced you are as a drinker, this beer is sure to delight your mouth so pick one up today!
