What did you think about Mayweather/Pacquiao? – John from Atlanta
I was pretty drunk for most of it, but I distinctly remember watching it from my local dive and some homeless man shitting himself on a bar stool after drinking about 10 cups of the complimentary coffee they put out. I enjoyed that more than the fight.
Who’s your dream girl? – Liz
Way to objectify half of the world’s population. How dare you assume that I’m into women? It’s 2015 and this is a very progressive website.
Also, it’s Emma Roberts or Lizzy Caplan. I want to own them as property.
Summer’s coming up soon. Any tips to make this one to remember? – Kathleen from Columbus, OH
Don’t leave your drink unattended.
This website used to be funny. – Mike from Peoria
No it didn’t. I don’t know what would lead you to believe that. This is a legitimate place for serious business.
You seem like the kind of person that’s had some issues with alcohol. It’s getting pretty bad for me and I was wondering if you had any tips on battling addiction or at least managing it. – Anonymous
I’ve yet to encounter a problem that couldn’t be solved by drinking more.
Well that was that. Send in your own e-mail questions and please try to keep the racial slurs down to a minimum. Not because we’re offended, but just putting a question mark after the N-word is a very confusing question. Like, do you want to know if I’m Black or are you offering one for trade? Use your words.
Appearance: Impregnable darkness. A wispy thin head that reminds me of a marshmallow after just 5 seconds over a campfire. It laces quite nicely too. Very little carbonation.
Smell: You get pretty much what you’d expect with something named after a French dessert. An almost cloying saccharine aroma hits you as soon as the bottle opens. There’s also a fair bit of vanilla, dark chocolate, and caramel.
Taste: A very thin body, but it still has a pleasing mouthfeel that manages to encourage me to go back for more. The strong sweet flavors are more tempered than I had expected, but it still feels like a bit much. Toasted nuts, toffee, and maybe something reminiscent of sweetened condensed milk.
The taste hits you pretty quickly and doesn’t leave you with much. There’s just a slight lingering sweetness.
Overall: This was not a bad beer and it delivered on it’s promise so I have to review it with that in mind. It wouldn’t be fair to review this like a normal stout because that’s not what they were going for. That being said, I had some issues with the strong sugar smell and the flavor profile. 76/100
