I’ve always been a big fan of those special, limited release dark beers. Founders’ KBS and CBS are amongst my all-time favorites. So when I had the chance to try Oil Rigger on tap at HopCat, I jumped at the opportunity. I had heard great things about it, but had never managed to have it until recently.
And boy was it a treat. With the chocolate, vanilla and coffee flavors I’ve come to love, along with an interesting sweetness throughout, this brew is by far one of my favorite HopCat beers ever. It’s smooth, relaxing, and the perfect drink for a snowy winter’s night.
