Tall, Dark and Horrible
My fav beer, Beamish, turned me on to stouts. Maybe because I like ice cream and beer so much together, I’m instinctively turned onto those oatmeal stouts and coffee themed beers. That being said, I picked up Brooklyn Brewery‘s (a fav brand of 80P’s) ‘Black Chocolate Stout.’
Hoping for a rich and delicious feeling, I instead was hit with “poopie-shit with an alcohol after-taste,” to quote 80P. Of course I’ll finish the 6-pack (I mean, I’m not going to waste beer, and such an expensive one at that) but now I’ll just use it for the high alcohol content – 10.6% – than for what I was hoping for – exquisite taste.
