Another offering from the Flying Monkeys down in Barrie. I was slightly apprehensive about this beer when I was about to start. When I got it I have only read that it was an Imperial Nut Brown Ale. What I had missed was it that it was instead an Imperial Nut Brown IPA (yes words are important). So I was trying to wrap my head around what that would taste like, and I understood the reference to "Division by Zero." My brain puzzled itself into a black hole. So I figured the only way to tell for sure was to try it.
So before we rip a hole in the space time continuum and flip into an alternate reality; let's try the beer... Onto the tasting...

Very interesting and a different experience. I would never have expected this to work, but it does in a very odd way. The sweet caramel nuttiness of the brown ale plays well with the citrusy, green hoppiness of the IPA. Kind of like peanut butter and celery. The thought is weird, but you love the taste. I am not sure if these are still available, it was a limited release, so if you can still find a bottle pick it up and try dividing by zero yourself.
Cheers And Beery Christmas
