    Thanks! There is no hurry for me yet. But the situation is not wonderful. Even in an emergency situation (like a death in the family) it would take 14 days of quarantine before getting home.

    But I think you are right that there are worse places to get stuck.

    I was about to stay at least till next Friday and maybe the weekend to do some cross country skiing. Glad I did bring my ski's, because I probably will have much more time than intended. Work can be done via internet, so that is covered.

    Was saving this, but decided to crack open my bottle of Other Half's Bananaversary in the run up to St. Patrick's Day. With the Parade (yeah, that one) and most gatherings cancelled, I thought I would light what is likely the Last Fire of the season. To my BA friends, remember the 3 B's: Be Smart, Be Safe and Be Healthy. Sláinte!

    Southern Prohibition Typical Tuesday American Pilsner

    [​IMG]

    Light golden color with white cap and lacing.

    A clean aroma of sweet malt and floral, spicy hops.

    Taste of lightly caramel malt balanced by sharp, floral hops. I cannot identify these hops except to say they are bold and bright in a floral way. Simple flavors that work and finish dry. Interesting take on the Pilsner style being fuller and punchier than the usual European examples yet not brash. It comes across as simple, clean, uncluttered and unsubtle yet very enjoyable.

    Medium full texture with a bit more carbonation than needed.

    This brew is more Pilsner than AAL pretenders and should make a good food match.

    River North -- Nightmare Fuel - Whiskey-Barrel Aged

    [​IMG]

    4.18/5 rDev -0.9%
    look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

    Reviewing the 2019 release no. 4 at 12.9% ABV

    Opaque ebony body with a one-finger thick light tan head, lasting. Rich cocoa and buttery chocolate scent; caramel. Decadent flavor notes of milk chocolate and cocoa; fine note of booziness cutting through the sweetness. Heavy body; chewy; plenty of alcohol heat; sensuous, velvety residual sugars coat the palate.

    Some brewery's excel at tasty, balanced yet mind-blowing dark beers. River North is one of those artisans. The beer delivers excellent depth and character and coats the palate with luscious, lasting goodness. Very, very fine stuff...

    Vanished Valley Watershed IPA and Orange Creamsicle Nitro. Both fantastic. These guys were popular at the Boston area festivals and they just opened a new taproom in western MA. Good food and great bear.

    Drekker Flarndip BBA Imperial Stout 10% ABV. Pours black with a 1+ finger light brown head that left no lacing. Nose is marshmallow, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste follows, plus roast malt, very light bourbon, moderately sweet, slightly bitter. Essentially a BBA s'mores beer, though no graham. Nose is much better than the taste. Excellent mouthfeel, overall a world-class pastry stout. Sure wish they'd can this in larger quantities.

    4.5/5 rDev +13.6%
    look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

    I've got enough beer to get through the coronapocalypse, but wish I had more of this!

    Trying another beer from Insurrection. Lord knows I'm not the biggest fan of Sabro hops, but this one, mixed with Citra, plays the background very nicely. I love it. Shout out Pittsburgh.

    Skiing was not terrible...but it is sloooopppy now. And the main lift went rescue mode, rope descents. I caught the shuttle and avoided the madness because I had a Space Dust at the bar and was not going up as it dudded out.

    Now, safe and sound. Ashton VSG
