Today my little brother Nick came over and helped us put up our Christmas tree. This year we significantly upgraded our tree. For the longest time (10+ years) we had a sad, skinny, sparse Charlie Brown looking thing. It was on its last legs, and so when trees went on sale this past January I scooped up an 8-full beast of a tree. We finally have something that looks great.
Tonight we’re relaxing and watching some TV while we enjoy the light of the tree. I just finished a bottle of Switchback Dooley’s Belated Porter. I picked up this bottle while I was in Vermont a few weeks back.
While the beer was good, it wasn’t particularly unique or interesting. As far as American Porters go, it was delicious and spot-on for the style. I picked up a ton of roasted coffee flavors and some hints of chocolate as the beer warmed. Other than that, there wasn’t much to say about the taste profile.
