    Mrs. Z woke up and wanted baked apples, cottage cheese and lime sherbet. What's a boy to do!? I put 4 honey crisps (and a pear) in a baking dish with plenty of butter, brown sugar, and a 1/4 cup of orange juice. Covered with foil, and popped in 350 oven and scampered off to the grocery store, where I picked up, inter alia, a fresh sixer canned 5/19/17:



    That's some tasty juice!
    Happy wife, happy life BAs - Cheers!

    It's the start of summer and I'm not at the beach. Hell, I'm barely wearing shorts. You don't think the spring on the north east has been uncharacteristically wet and cool? Player please.

    Something from off the beaten path...
    [​IMG]
    Lough Gill Brewing's 11% abv Imperial Oatmeal Coffee Cream Stout...
    [​IMG]
    Part of their Rebel Stout Series... From the label, "There's more than one stout in Ireland, and we can prove it. Our Rebel Stouts are the dark Irish beer your mother didn't tell you about. Creating dark, mysterious and unique brews is our passion. Craft brewed in our independent brewery in Sligo."

    The pour was a translucent dark brown, but netted an appropriately black-bodied brew in the glass, with a slim finger of dark tan foam on top. Some lace lingered behind, but got pulled back into the beer pretty quickly. Aromas suggested molasses and coffee, with some roasted black chocolate in the background. Sweet on the sip, bringing impressions of coffee sweetened with molasses and chocolate and lightened by cream. Feel was relatively light, soft and smooth, though I'm partial to a heavier build in any stout, particularly those coming in at imperial strength. Not much on the bitterness or char front - stayed sweet to the end with plenty of coffee and chocolate syrup through to the finish.

    Packaged in a 14.9 oz. can with no dating, but I'm thinking the beer was a January 2017 or earlier release based on the brewery's Facebook page.

    Gearing up for a re-watch of Prometheus...

    Anticipating seeing Alien: Covenant next weekend...


    Where are all the aliens?

    They forgot #11, we are the aliens... :grimacing::grimacing::grimacing:

    Stay vigilant, BA...

    Good evening BA, hope everyone had a good Saturday so far. As promised yesterday, I went out to Rochester Hills and found some new beer. About 1 case of singles and a case of bottles or so. Not too shabby, but also insanely expensive. It'll keep me busy for another couple weeks. Glad I was able to restock my bomber line in the door of my fridge. Got a lot of sours as usual: the Mikkeller Spontaneous and Almanac stuff I didn't grab yet, and there are still a few more I can get when I go back.

    Today's new reviews:

    A dry hopped lager from Well's & Young's. This was delicious! Insane head retention and lasting lacing on the glass, nice clarity. Aromas and flavors of lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, melon, pear, grapefruit, orange zest, herbal, floral, grassy, and light peppery hops; with moderate cracker/white bready malt balance. Light-moderate herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied; balanced bready/grainy malts and sticky hops in the mouthfeel. Moderately crisp and increasing bitter dryness. Very refreshing. Perfectly clean lagering, no yeasty notes. This is brewed with Styrian Goldings, then lagered on Galaxy and Ella hops. Really nice profile. Superb pale lager with plenty of flavor for 4.7%. 3.93

    This was really nice. Aromas and flavors of lightly tart lemon, lime, green apple, pear, white grape, berry, sea salt, wheat, cracker, and light pepper/lacto funk. Light-moderate lactic tartness and light peppery spice on the finish. Light-medium bodied; balanced grainy malt, lactic acid, and salinity in the mouthfeel. Moderately crisp/drying finish. Very flavorful and refreshing, never puckering. A lot more balanced than the other Anderson Valley Gose I've had, in regards to lactic acidity. Well worth picking up again, but so are the rest of them. My least favorite of the lot rating-wise, but that doesn't really mean much. 3.9

    Great fruit beer! Aromas and flavors of big juicy apricots, peach, pineapple, pear, and herbal/peppery hops; with balanced wheat, cracker, toasted biscuit malts. Some yeasty earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop bitterness and slight fruit tartness on the finish. Medium bodied; balanced bready/grainy wheat and sticky hops in the mouthfeel. Moderately crisp, increasing bitter dryness. Super refreshing. The balance between fruit and wheat beer flavors are perfect. Very authentic and not artificial on fruits. A tad bitter for the style, but I have zero complaints. Really impressive! 4

    Batch #2, listed as 4%. Awesome wild ale! Aromas and flavors of big lightly tart lemon, lime, peach, pineapple, melon, green apple, pear, white grape, white wine, pepper, oak, hay, straw, herbal, grass, and tea; with some wheat/crackery malts; and lighter notes of leathery/musty funk and white vinegar. Light lactic tartness and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Light-medium bodied; balanced grainy wheat, lactic acid, and light oak tannins in the mouthfeel. Moderately crisp/drying finish, never puckering. Very drinkable and refreshing. Classic JK funk profile with added Kombucha Tea flavors. Jester King is the literal Texas equivalent of Jolly Pumpkin for me. Rarely been disappointed, always consistent and delicious. 4.1

    It's a juicy day in Texas (which is another way of saying it's hot and humid), so how about a juicy beer?

    This is the Transient iteration. It's very good, but not as good as I thought it would be.

    My last bcbs while we're at it here ba. I'm enjoying it as always but it's pretty crazy how the lag high west can still match up with them all. Especially given it's price value,

    That seems to the consensus knock on the film - slow-paced, too "talky" - but I had no such experience - I loved it... The word on Covenant is that it is far more action-packed, but is also something of a mash-up of stuff from previous entrants in the series, i.e., it breaks no new ground. Whatevs... :rolling_eyes: lol :stuck_out_tongue: - I'm a big fan of the series - I've loved all the films... :sunglasses:

    Splitting a 2015 Blushing Monk (see? can't get away from Founders :stuck_out_tongue:). The age has not improved it exactly, and the raspberries have faded a touch, but it's still very tasty.

    #2, this is world-class, IMHO. I literally begged Little O to drink this when he visited this week, but he wouldn't bite. I have beer-spoiled that young man.

    Happy Saturday beer brew! Started my day off struggling through an hour long run and then went into the store with a hankering for some Swamis ( @Lingenbrau ) but couldn't find any freshies. Luckily stumbled upon some Modern Times that was canned a couple weeks ago. Tasting nice for sure!

    Must re-watch it & blow through the slow parts to see if I just missed something. Maybe it was just too hyped/built up before I saw it?

    I've been using Flickr for over 5 years, and all of my pics are still visible on the forums for years. I pay for Pro, but it's totally worth the unlimited storage. I have almost 6000 photos at this point of just adult beverages.
