generally, after i've overstuffed my gullet on a big meal of mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, vinagretted salad, and (seemingly discordant) kimchi, followed by a course of various hard cheeses from spain and portugal, i binge further and help myself to a mugful of breyers vanilla icecream. i know there are better dessert options out there, but in terms of consistency and availability, said flavor really shines. what i do not want, historically, after giant dinners with menus akin to the one above described, is beer. enter lagunitas espresso stout, which breaks all precedent. i was full like thanksgiving, stuffed to the gills, but not ready to let the night end, and all out of breyers. so i reached into the cellar and withdrew this whopper (which, at $4.99 for twenty-two ounces, is among the best-priced beers on the market) from the cellar and pried off the cap. the first sip was a total knockout--terrifically bitter, but, beyond that, unbelievably complex. it poured handsomely with a short, dry head that dissolved quickly. i took my time drinking it, such that by the time i had an inch-or-so left in my collins glass, it was well warmed. hot coffee gone cold i find repulsively unenjoyable, but chilled espresso stout turned room temperature? outstanding. those final sips even tasted a bit like vanilla ice cream.
