    I had to clean my palate after the last beer I tried and Lagunitas Sucks did the trick. What a great cheap beer!

    Ok, I am hoping that once I can buckle down and save some beer sending fund, a Verdi Imperial Stout or two, will have to makes its way. I really would like to hear your thoughts on it! I know I do taunt the Italian beers a lot, but for me this one transcends that notion.

    Top fermented beer which is subjected to a secondary fermentation in bottle. It is deep dark ebony in color with a cappuccino head. The nose has aromas of chocolate, licorice, coffee grounds and tobacco with alcohol nuances. Its full bodied, long lasting, smooth and dry mouth is followed by a surprisingly hot finish that breaks its initial fullness and makes you crave more! It is suitable for aging.

    Dedicating one of our beers to Giuseppe Verdi was a must since our microbrewery is located in Roncole Verdi, the composer’s birth place. When I returned from my first visit to New York City I decided to create a beer that would be superior in elegance, balance and drinkability to all those stout varieties I had overseas. Although the initial recipe has changed, the very first batch matched my vision. Its uniqueness lays in the use of chili pepper which combines very well with the beer’s chocolate aroma. The hot finish also lightens its full bodied mouth by awakening the palate.
    Verdi Imperial Stout is the first Italian craft beer to have ever been crowned with a gold medal in its category at an International beer contest. In 2008 it ranked first at The European Beer Star in the Imperial Stout category./span>

    Chocolate desserts, fine pastries and soft cheese like Gorgonzola. It is a beer to meditate on.

    ABV. 8,2% 20,0°P

    Storing temperature: Between 4 and 18°C (it keeps best refrigerated)
    Serving temperature: Between 10 and 18°C (depending on the room temperature)

    Are you ready for some football?

    A bit more than a half-hour in, Everton is trailing Man Utd 0-1, dammit, but this match is far from over and the same applies to my Cambridge Sgt. Pepper saison. The latter is quite peppery (surprise!); hopefully the warmth will carry over into this afternoon's snow-shoveling duties.

    Enjoy your day, folks.

    Yeah, put me on the spot why don't you.;) The mention of licorice and chocolate suggests..because I'm maybe the biggest fan of The Abyss..that I'd try it and like it. The chili pepper addition takes me back to Cigar City's Hunahpu's. Yeah, it sounds delicious.:)

    And I would love to try those too! I am also a stout lover! I am always open to new things. But I always try beer regardless of the love, hype, or fill in the blank, that it may have.

    Actually I will tell you how I began my craft journey. It was two and half years ago, when an old friend invited me for a beer at PJ'S Pourhouse in Westmont, NJ. (The next town close to me) I believe at this point I have never actually have a beer, and the very first one I tried was, yes you named it, Verdi Imperial Stout! That very moment I knew I could not continue enjoying wine has I had. I had found it! My place! My buddy said I might have something with this Italian craft love as maybe I can a review channel started solely based for Italian craft!

    Something different and funky today. Jolly Pumpkin Firefly. I'm surprised it wasn't corked and caged with the amount of carbonation.

    Had a pint of Rubaeus at Founders last night. Tastes just as good as it was in 07/08. Now going to crack into some of my Oddside Ales "Howlers" (32 oz). I picked up their Double IPA, Sour Citra Pale Ale, and Smokin Hama Mama (Citra Pale Ale made with passionfruit and chipotle). Cheers all.

    Well, the driveway is cleared, cars cleared, plus cleared an area for the puppies to go play. Stone 12.12.12 or Smoked Porter are in the snow bank. On the other hand, it was much work dealing with snow...maybe I deserve both!
