A realization I came across whilst drinking a Founder's Imperial Stout. Stricken with hunger I open the fridge to find myself a small meal (alcohol tends to make me hungry) when I think "None of the food in my fridge has a higher caloric content than the beer I just consumed." And there in that moment, staring at a package of jalapeno cheddar brats I planned on mixing with some scrambled eggs, I had an epiphany..."The more calories a beer has, the less filling it is". A terrible realization for any college student hoping to maintain a figure of youth. My reasoning is that a I figure a bigger imperial beer has nearly 6-10x as many calories as a Miller 64, yet fills you up so much less than drinking an equal caloric amount (6-10 miller 64's). Why can't the body process those calories and tell your ol' noggin' that it's consumed enough calories and thus does not need an additional meal on top of it? Am I destined, as a fan of high calorie / high flavorful beers, to trade away my abdominal 6-pack for the alternative liquid 4-pack?
