I’m beginning to realize that work is going to be a total pain in my balls from now until May 11. Every time I feel like I have things under control, 15 minutes pass by and I’m drowning in to do lists once again. Oh well, at least I have a job I love. Seriously. I’m spending the last hour of tomorrow testing hydrogen balloon configurations to determine which one is the most awesome. I get paid to do this shit. Seriously.
Brooklyn Brown Ale out of Brooklyn, New York. It pours a deep, dark brown with a light tan head. It smells of biscuits and malt. The taste is rich and complex. The longer I drank it, the more nuanced the flavor. It started with chocolate and roasted malts. Then the nuttiness showed itself. This is kind of a heavy brown ale that I don’t think I would necessarily drink year-round despite its availability. About midway through the glass, I began picking up on a great caramel flavor that led to coffee notes.
Like I said, it’s got some complex flavors going on. One of my absolute favorite beers from Brooklyn is their Local 2. It’s a Belgian strong dark ale. I recommend you go find one. Maybe even go find this one and let me know which one is your favorite. I vote this one as a great wintertime beer.
