It completely slipped my mind to tell you about finishing up my latest tattoo. The piece, a Spanish bull, is in memory of our trip to the Azores. And no, it’s not a fighting bull, as I’m strongly against it. This bull is wild, free and as you’ll note, has not been pierced by swords. As always, it came out super awesome, and I have to shout out to George Motta at Pino Bros Ink. Take a look at the finished piece at the end of this post.
OH, and in related news, George recently re-published his portfolio, featuring yours truly. Photos below.
Tonight I’m reviewing Southern Tier Salted Caramel, an imperial stout. This beer is the epitome of a dessert beer. CRAZY sweet. Also, crazy delicious, assuming you’re into sweet malty dark beer. Although it’s brewed with sea salt, I couldn’t pick up on any salt. I did get a TON of caramel and vanilla notes. The beer immediately reminded me of another amazing dessert beer from the same brewery: Creme Brulee Stout. Now, I haven’t had the Creme Brulee for a while, so I can’t compare them side by side, but it sure brought back some distinct memories, if for only the super sweet character. Highly recommended as a sipping, post-dinner treat.
