Another basketball game tonight, another loss. Hey, at least I'm burning calories, right? I think I need to make up for all that over-exertion by eating all of the food in the fridge for dinner. OH WAIT, THAT'S RIGHT. Courtesy of some recent beer/brewery stockpiling, there's legitimately no room in the fridge for food. I mean, there's some food, if we're counting condiments, pickles (homemade!), and cheese as food - which I often do. If not.... yeah. I'm occasionally a terrible grown up. I admit this freely.
I'll punish myself for my lack of positive adult role modeling by reviewing Cryptical, an Imperial Stout from Starr Hill Brewery. This one has a dark black hue, with a thick tan head. Your nose finds a smoky, toasted malt aroma, and the taste is bitter, with burnt malt and tons of smoky flavor. Clean and dry finish, and brings a 7.5% ABV to the party. If you're looking for a potent stout with tons of smoky, toasty malt, look no further. If you're not looking for that, why on Earth are you considering ordering an Imperial Stout?
|Looks like it tastes.|
Thing to Think About Today:
Seeing how Halloween is nearly upon us, I thought I might tie in a Tales from the Crypt reference in here, but I'm really not a big fan of the horror genre. So... if we're talking Cryptical.... yeah... it's time for Mystikal! See what I did there? I highly don't encourage you hitting this video at work, unless your employer really, truly likes it when you Shake Ya Ass.
"Shake ya ass... but watch ya' self!"
