Name of beer reviewing: Ale Asylum Babadook

Type of beer: IPA

ABV: IPA Babadook, brewed by Sentient Crash Test Dummies at Ale Asylum, Madison WI. Available at Ridgeview Liqour


Don't understand beer tasting, my experience in college was usually thru a funnel or shot-gunning. Now it's binge drinking at a Packer game, so I thought I should do this properly. I smelled the cap, heaved a bit. Took a small taste and swooshed it around and swallowed warm beer. Yuck! Packaging is awesome with a picture of a Babadook (An Australian monster of sorts). This is brewed by Sentient Crash Test Dummies at Ale Asylum, Madison Wis. and available at Ridgeview Liquor.


Well, the only real way for me to taste a beer is to take big gulps and voila: I love it! I loved it so much that I didn't like it till the third beer (If that makes sense, I think it will to most). Hence, why I bought a six-pack. I am not a beer sipper or a one beer at dinner guy; I'm a six-pack or more because if there is a reason to drink beer you should do it all the way.

You'll like this beer if:

You like Fantasy Factory or cool packaging.

You'll dislike this beer if:

You drink only one or like Pabst.

Rating: 7/10
