That sounds off the hook. I’ve been told not to work tomorrow so I think I may try to get my hands on some Eagle Rare on the way home. Beer is currently off the menu.Had an Orange Chocolate Imperial Stout from Brothers in HBurg last night that was fantastic. Gonna plug in their Mole Stout for the next time we eat Mexican.
Nothing wrong with counting nostalgia as part of the enjoyment factor, sir. There are several beers out there that get a bit of a rating bump from me for just that reason.Had a Samoa Porter from Strangeways last night. Funny story - that was the first beer I had 3-4 years ago that made me realize I might enjoy beer as much as wine. I fell in love with it instantly and it has always held a special place in my heart just for nostalgia's sake, really.
Had it again last night for the first time since that time 3-4 years ago, and was a little nervous that it wouldn't live up to expectations - and I wouldn't give it 5 out of 5 or whatever, but easily 4 out of 5 for me. Still really, really good. We've had so many great beers since then but it was a lot of fun to go back to that original one that kind of started it all for me.
