I like beer, and I like coffee, but not together. JMHO.
"Even if there are moments during the day when all seems normal and when every action of your own and of those around you seems to be unremarkable, the appearance of ordinariness is an illusion, and just below the placid surface, the world is seething." -- Dean Koontz, DEEPLY ODD
My family is full of drinkers (Irish), and I am sad to say that many of them have never had a porter. Its sad actually. Love me a porter!! Any good recommendations? Its so hard to find any here in Florida, light ales all over the place.
You and Chris have to come up. My wife and I would gladly take you on a porter expedition in Columbia County, NY and over in Mass in the Berkshires. You will go home edumacated.
Thank you sir. Going shopping tonight for some study material.
Not sure if you can make it out but this is a 650ml bottle of brew with an ABV of 10.9%! It also tastes fantastic
Just some cheap (or at least in the old days it used to be cheap) Miller Genuine Draft.
Ok, I see the tag on the neck of the bottle now. MGD is not all that bad a beer. If I could get the orignal stuff from Milwaukee I would drink a lot of it. Sadly the MGD we get here is just the recycled drippings from the urinals at hockey games that is rebottled by Labbatts :puke:
Well here is the remainder in the cold light of day - a PanHead oat stout from New Zealand. To be honest, I can't give you my thoughts because I was too stressed by the football to really pay it the attention it deserved.
It's Beer O'clock and I'm sampling; for the first time; this interesting beverage...
This one is produced by our own Central City Brewing Co. I normally by the less expensive Red Racer India Pale Ale but thought I would splurge and try this one out. Well, the Imperial might indicate that this would be a superior beer to the regular one and it is in some ways but both rate pretty much the same on RateBeer.
I like a good IPA. I've had many; some good; some bad and some just plain ugly! This one is probably one of the best I've had.
As mentioned, the 'Imperial' part is not just marketing; this one is really good. It has all the hoppy aroma and flavour you could want without being over powering to the nose or palate. It pours a beautiful amber colour and I mean just like the colour of real amber. The flavour delivers what the aroma promises. Hops, citrus, caramel and mango. In the mouth and over the tongue, this one is most pleasant. It has enough body to feel like you have a substantial beer in your mouth while not being to heavy or oily. It finishes with a slight bitterness and the lingering flavours of hops and citrus. Each sip tastes exactly like the last, all the way to the bottom of the glass. None of that stale beer smell you often get when drinking a lesser beer. This is one finely crafted beer and I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good IPA and can get their hands on it
Recently invited my nephew over (I had at least two of each available) the founders backwoods bastard is delicious. Saint Arnold is a local brewery and the Devine Reserve and bishop's barrel are special release. Literally off the shelves within hours upon release.
