Today was spent mentally preparing myself for disappointment. I find it's easier to deal with stomach punches when you're expecting them from a mile away. Meh.
The beer for today is the Doppelsticke, from the rather unpronounceable Uerige Obergärige Hausbrauerei in Germany. It's a dark chocolate color in the glass with a thin off white head, and your nose picks up the scent of dark fruits and molasses. Flavors such as chocolate, bread, and caramel are present along with a strong malt profile. There's a hop bitterness mixed in to balance out some of the sweeter flavors. Very well done beer, if I must say so myself.

Thing to Think About Today:
Second day in a row I don't have something with a connection to the beer/brewery/town at the top of my mind to close out my post. Too much work, not enough day dreaming, if you ask my opinion.
Okay, just because it's a lot of fun, let's have the Old Crow Medicine Show close out the day with Wagon Wheel. I've always associated this song with road trips and the south - maybe thinking about road trips will spark some imagination for tomorrow. And to all, a good night.
