Today…no…this week SUCKED. Too much stress at work. Too much to do for school. So much going on with the blog (that’s the good part). But still, with so much going on my head is ready to explode. I can’t wait to have time off tomorrow. I’m really digging taking Friday afternoons off.

Today I went in early, worked late, came home and scarffed a super nice dinner that my wife made before running off to a team meeting for a school project. Back from an hour and a half with the team, and right onto the laptop to do ANOTHER hour of work that I apparently couldn’t get done in the 11 hours at work today. BLAH! I need a beer.

A giant Shipyard Imperial Porter to the rescue!

But even this friggin beer isn’t giving me a break today! Look at pour #1. This was not a function of me taking out aggressions. I literally poured down the side of the glass for 1/390000th of a second and got this much head.

Poured the head out. Try #2. FAIL.

Went with the spoon method to remove the head this time. Third pour is the charm. Thanks God…let’s drink some beer.

I should quickly mention that this is the second to last beer I have from my trip to the Shipyard brewery. So sad.

Despite the tragic foam incident, I’m going to have to give the beer high marks. I’m blown away by how smooth and easy drinking this imperial is. Crazy dangerous at 7.1% ABV!

Light coffee flavors with roasted malts. Malt fairies whisper “chocolate” to my tongue.

No, I’m not trashed. I’ve just lost my mind. Go buy some of this shit. It’s good.
