Bois & Bar Talk

Drink Of The Week

Today on the eighth episode of Season 3 on the Bois & Bar Talk podcast, the Drink of the week is Candles Out brewed by Charter Oak Brewery located in Danbury, CT. On Charter Oaks website they describe Candles Out as "medium bodied that has a citrus aroma and flavor". It’s a big NEIPA and is a hazy and hop monster, yet easy drink’r and actually very well balanced".

Although Charter Oak described it this way, we didn't really agree and felt that it wasn't really a true New England IPA compared to others we've tasted. It lacked a certain "juicy" flavor that normally comes with the name NEIPA. While it was described as a limited release with strong citrus, we agreed it tasted more like the peel of an orange rather than the juice. Not any disrespect towards Charter Oak, but it was nice trying it. However, we would skip past it next time at the store.

How We Rated Candles Out

  • Rob’s Rating: 5.7/10
  • Kev’s Rating: 6.0/10

Candles Out Show Notes

On this episode of Bois & Bar Talk the Bois decided to pull up a tier list and rank different types of cereals. Usually we don't disagree on much but this tier list got the argument juices flowing. Rob and Kev go back and forth about the ranking positions of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Captain Crunch, Trix and others. For some reason, many tier lists have S being the best grade over A. We like using this method as well.

Also whats the best way to eat cereal? Dry, Soggy, or a mixture of both? After being side tracked by that argument we had to go into a speed round in the last few minutes of the podcast and we even ran out of time! It was a passionate discussion.
