Been a number of days since I last blogged. Half busy, half lazy. Would have loved to blog on Friday. I had an endoscopy and was on serious drugs. 90% out of my gourd for the entire evening. Alas, I couldn’t drink while on the meds. The weekend was filled with Boston sports misery (Bruins + Patriots lost in epic last minute fashion).
Tonight I’m sitting down with a Weyerbacher. The Winter Ale to be precise. I hate that winter is coming, but at least I get some new seasonal beers to try.
This ale is a dark, dark brown in color. Don’t let the color fool you: it’s only 5.6 ABV (smells like 10%) and very drinkable. As you can see from the picture below, it pours with a lot of head. My pour wasn’t that aggressive either.
Not really bitter and not really sweet. Balanced. Roasted malts. Slight caramel and coffee.
