Deja Brew – Red Rock Bock

Tonight the wife is at yoga. I’m watching the last installment of The Lord of the Rings. Over the last few weeks I watched all three movies for the first time. The initial movie is a snoozer, the second much better. So far, so good on the third. We need some action though. While I sit here I figured I should review a beer. I have plenty of the beer I brought home from Deja Brew, so I’m gonna crack open a bottle of this Red Rock Bock.

We had tacos for lunch, and my stupid fingers smell like onions…can’t wash it off and it is driving me nuts. I’ve gotta do the no-hands-beer-sniff. I’m surprised at how little aroma this brew has.

I popped the top and the bottle gushed everywhere. Based on what I saw when we were bottling, I’m not surprised at all. We were true amateurs…over carbonating, under carbonating, over filling, under filling, and so on.

This beer is pretty bland to be completely honest. This particularly sucks because my threesome was responsible for the Red Rock. It’s ever so slightly bitter from beginning to end. Bubbly. Watered down tasting. A little sweet after warming (chocolate). It does seem like we got the color right…it’s dark red/mahogany.
