I feel like we’re due for some new memes. I can only see so many Confession Bears that are just thinly-veiled racism before I get bored. Here are my new offerings. Tell me what you think on Twitter @BoozeTweets or at the Facebook page. I guess you can send an e-mail to email@example.com, but unless there are nude pics in it I likely won’t open it.
IMMORAL LAWN SPRINKLER THAT HAS ITS FIRST PERIOD AT THE WORST POSSIBLE MOMENT
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN CARVER
POTTED RHODODENDRON THAT DOESN’T SHOW ITS WORK
This is still a work in progress. If you have ideas do that thing I said to do at the top of this post. Here’s the beer review.
Appearance: Explosive. It hits the bottom of my glass and erupts into a brilliantly strong head with an impressive, almost hazelnut, color. It’s big and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
Strong bubbles are just barely visible through the thick and hazy dark, grapefruit color. This looks like a piece of art.
Smell: Surprisingly muted. What does comes off is toasted nuts, maybe some cherries, and a bit of alcohol.
Taste: A letdown. A very, very thin mouthfeel; reminiscent of cold fruit juice. An offensive alcohol taste fills the mouth in such a way that it makes it hard to taste much else. There’s a nice roasted flavor. It certainly gets better and better as my hand starts to warm the glass. The previously overpowering tastes have given way to raisins, coffee cake, and something slightly spicy.
Overall: 79/100. I made the mistake of getting my hopes up too high before I drank this beer. The appearance was well beyond amazing; I’m giving that feature a 30/25. Everything else was disappointing. Maybe next time.
Up Next: Either a nice stout or I revisit the American light beers.
