Dun Dun Di Dun… Dun Di Dun….
Thats my try at writing out the Imperial Theme anyway. (The above ought to work, its my first try at including music to the weblog, so hopefully I did all of it proper.) (After testing it – it appears to be good to go from my residence.)
I figured this is able to be an applicable first beer to evaluation for our new Star Wars Fridays collection. Beforehand we did Star Wars Wednesdays to coincide with The E-book of Boba Fett episodes being launched. Nicely this time, with the Obi-Wan Kenobi present being on Fridays, we switched it as much as be Star Wars Fridays. Get pleasure from!
Throughout The E-book of Boba Fett season – seven episodes – we lined seven Star Wars beers. They have been:
We additionally lined one other beer evaluation hidden in my evaluation of The E-book of Boba Fett present after it completed, wrapped up right here:
- The E-book of Boba Fett (Evaluation)
As for this beer, you could find me ingesting it within the YouTube video me and my buddies remodeled on the Knights of Nostalgia web page. Honest warning – there’s plenty of swearing, soiled speaking, drunken shenanigans, and flat out tomfoolery concerned. Yow will discover the video right here: “The E-book of Boba Fett – Dialogue Piece.” Yow will discover the YouTube channel right here: Knights of Nostalgia (YouTube).
So first, earlier than leaping into the beer evaluation, lets focus on why we’re right here. And thats as a result of its “Star Wars Fridays” right here on The Beer Thrillers, and thats as a result of new Obi-Wan Kenobi present.
As a part of Star Wars Celebration, they introduced they’d be dropping the primary two episodes at midnight (japanese time) reasonably than the same old 3AM. (Introduced as being launched at 9PM PT; which is the place Star Wars Celebration was being held.) In order that was a bonus enjoyable deal with, getting to observe Episode 1 and Episode 2 at midnight. (Ended up staying up til 3AM hyped from the present.)
This beer evaluation is to coincide with the primary episode. I shall be posting later at the moment, the second beer evaluation to go together with the second episode. (I do know, fairly a couple of weblog put up drops up to now few days, between the assorted information associated posts, and these beer opinions.)
That means I can hold every beer evaluation / weblog put up detailing every episode and focus on that exact episode on the finish of the the evaluation. (The spoilers part.)
Okay, now that we’ve watched the trailer, and gotten adequately hyped on Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Star Wars, lets get on to the beer evaluation.

First, let’s check out Mispillion River Brewing Firm on Untappd.

Type: IPA – Imperial / Double Black
Untappd Description: From the darkness comes a beer that solely the pressure will rival. This double black IPA is wealthy with hops and balanced with the darkish facet. In case you are tempted by one, you’ll certainly succumb to 2!
As we usually do right here on The Beer Thrillers, we begin with look, then aroma, after which style. And taking a look at this beer after its been poured, its downright darkish and black. Black like Darth Vader’s go well with itself (needed to change it up from my former used line of – black like Razor Ramone’s hair – RIP). It has a stupendous foamy head, and it appears downright scrumptious. Good different bubbles, good black hue for a black IPA, and a pleasant pour. Carbonation was on level.
Aroma has that good darkish IPA aroma to it; the malty notes come out firstly. You get some chocolate, earthy, bready malty notes, which then dives into the hops themselves – primarily from the mosaic you get a dankness after which citrus, nearly even a candy citrus hop word. There’s a lot happening with the aroma to this in type of a posh method that leaves the nostril longing for the beer itself.
This tastes like a really finely put collectively black IPA. Certainly one of my favourite ‘underrated’ kinds. I don’t suppose Black IPAs get the press they deserve, not to mention even truly obtain, and I really feel just like the press they do get tends to be detrimental. Clearly their not the “in” beer model, like Hazy / Juicy New England IPAs are, and so proper off the bat their not going to get the eye that these beers get. However having stated my piece, I’m now going to give attention to the beer at hand. Out of the gate, sipping this, you get notes of the roast malted, some chocolate overtones within the maltyness, and bready and earthy notes from a mix of the malts and hops I imagine. This type of segues itself into the center of the beer which will get into the bitter, extra roasted, nearly porter like tastes, however by no means utterly leans on that as its not a porter however an IPA. Which is the place it finally ends up at – all IPA child. I will surely say that is above common for many beers, and above common for its model. Its a pleasant shock coming from Mispillion River Brewing Firm, a brewery thats been on my listing to hit subsequent time we get into Delaware. I’ve principally solely gotten to pattern from them at completely different brewfests and such and never had a complete lot of their stuff on faucet or from the can, so this was a pleasant change of tempo with them. They usually actually wow’ed me with it too. Its a superb beer and a superb piece of labor from them, and the namesake for the beer works with its model and look completely.
My Untappd Score: ****
World Common Untappd score: 3.84 (as of 5.27.22)
The Obi-Wan Kenobi Present
Okay, right here’s the place the spoilers are going to come back in everybody. So for those who don’t need to be spoiled, you possibly can cease studying right here, or you possibly can zoom all the way down to the underside of the put up the place I wrap issues up. Your alternative on that. Should you’ve seen Episode 1 (or Half I) of Obi-Wan Kenobi, then chances are you’ll gladly stick round for the subsequent few paragraphs of dialogue.
Firstly, simply to present some house for the spoilers, I’ll provide a couple of hyperlinks for additional dialogue, for those who discover you need to learn extra about individuals’s ideas on the present, you possibly can verify these out:
And right here’s a enjoyable little video to observe:
This was from final evening on the Star Wars Celebration, involving Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen. Talking of Celebration, they introduced a brand new present known as “Skeleton Crew” which can begin Jude Regulation, they usually gave a definitive date to the Andor present and confirmed a trailer for that as properly. (I’ll most likely cowl that extra within the subsequent beer evaluation, as a result of in any other case that’ll simply be an excessive amount of right here.) In addition they introduced some extra Star Wars books and confirmed some covers for present already introduced titles.
So anyway, onto my ideas in regards to the Obi-Wan Kenobi present – Half I.
Firstly – I completely beloved it. This present is every thing that The E-book of Boba Fett wasn’t (however was imagined to be). A properly thought out, a properly paced, and a properly written present. Ewan McGregor is such an exceptional actor and you may inform he completely loves the character of Obi-Wan, that he downright feels him to the bone. The story of Half I makes good sense and I’ve no complaints about how they went about writing issues. The opening of the Jedi Temple being attacked was sturdy and poignant (particularly given current USA occasions) however there’s no level actually discussing it as its not a lot similarity and its nonetheless wanted and mandatory for the general plot of the present (and Star Wars basically).
I loved the thought of Leia being captured and that being the thrust to get Obi-Wan off planet. It is sensible that that will be the one factor that might get him to depart Luke and go off of Tatooine. Nothing outright contradicts something beforehand established within the (new) canon, to this point so good on that. It does border some issues although that will get right into a little bit of a murkier territory. (Like how Anakin and Dooku dueled about 30 occasions in between Episode II and Episode III on The Clone Wars.) However nothing that blatant (but).
The actress for Leia nails it and provides you that spunky angle you count on out of Leia, and looks as if a younger Carrie Fisher. (Her operating is bizarre although, however what child doesn’t run bizarre.) They need to have simply had her instantly captured as an alternative of getting the bizarre awkward “child eludes adults” whereas operating bit. However hey, not less than we received Flea in Star Wars now!
Its a way more grittier, somber, and darker story. Which is type of what The E-book of Boba Fett ought to have been. Tatooine can also be shot higher on this present, versus that of Fett too, which is a bit bizarre. E-book of Boba Fett has type of a glossier look to it, the place as right here, Tatooine is clearly grittier, dirtier, extra actual and lived in.
Costumes and set items and stuff look very spectacular. Although there’s not too many “Star Wars” aliens. The aliens they do present look Star Warsy sufficient, however their not specific / particular aliens that we all know and love from previous films and reveals. (Suppose Twi’leks, Trandoshans, Wookies, Abyssins, Ithorians, Ishi Tibs, Chadra-Followers, Grans, Dugs, Gungans, Klatoonians, and many others, and many others, and many others.)
However all in all, I beloved it, and it left me wanting extra. So I can’t wait. Later at the moment I shall be posting one other beer evaluation (Inexperienced Milk) and doing Half II dialogue. Additionally tonight, I shall be on the Knights of Nostalgia Twitch web page. Yow will discover us right here: Knights of Nostalgia (Twitch).
