    Time to start a new day. Going to try to join @oach and some of the Thursday Night Beer Club crew virtually tonight. Starting another day in a constantly changing world with a brewery I know I can count on.

    Listening to SiriusXM indie 1.0 this morning, and it dropped three of my favorite bands on me.



    Maybe just being alive at the beginning and end of the day is enough these days. What do I know? I’ve been drinking all night and into the morning because I really have nowhere else to go. Have the best day you can, virtual bar brethren.

    And tell @PatrickCT we need him for vinyl day on 4/11. Cheers.

    Have a good Thursday. Stayed up all night again. Played Witcher 3 for most of the night, with a bit of Modern Warfare multiplayer online with my friends that were still awake. Finally got to my first Wild Hunt warrior after 10 hours of play. Pretty strong dude, going to take a few tries to slay him down. He does a few intermediate health recharges with an unbreakable shield, while he sicks the wolves on you a few times. I need to go find a blacksmith and get my silver sword repaired after I get out of this place. Some of the most fun with a game I've had in my life. I even used to never play RPGs, which seems crazy to me now.

    2009 New Holland Night Tripper. This is tasting fantastic. Aromas and flavors of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, toffee, vanilla, roasted nuts, toasted biscuit, and dark bread/crust; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, fig, date, smoke, char, leather, tobacco, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal, grassy, peppery, roast, charred bitterness on the finish. Mellow carbonation and fairly full body; very creamy, silky, velvety and lightly slick/sticky/chalky mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering hop/char bitter dryness; no cloying/acrid/astringent flavors. Dangerously smooth/soft, mild increasing warmth of 10.8%. Amazing rich malt complexity with balancing earthy hops and restrained fruity yeast. Not overly sweet/heavy from lingering dryness. Despite soft carbonation, very little oxidation to be found! Very similar to the 2008 I had 2 weeks ago, not surprisingly. Maybe just a little more bitter/drying, and not as heavy bodied. 4.25

    Nice beer and nice game! I haven't played Witcher 3 since all the DLC came out for it I am about to buy it on Steam and give it a go. I've been playing Outer Worlds recently.

    Just got home from mowing the lawn at Mom & Dad's house. It's funny to me that I've mowed theirs twice already and I haven't done ours once yet. Dad has always been quite particular about the lawn :nerd:.

    Time for a beer...

    Just got off the phone with another contractor. They are looking to try and get me into an OEM for Fuel Economy Testing, Chassis, or Body DRE. Most stuff is on hold til after the virus isolation order, but as long as I can get my name into as many places as possible I can decide what I want to take if the money is right.

    Anchorage Catalyst. Awesome hoppy kolsch. Lasting fluffy head retention/foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, red apple, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine hops; with moderate wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light biscuit/toasted malts; herbal, floral, grassy hops and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation, medium body, and fairly crisp/clean finishing. Balanced creamy/bready/grainy malts, sticky hops, and light resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing bitter dryness, no hp astringency. Very smooth, refreshing, zero warming 5%. Awesome Citra, Galaxy, Motueka profile. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a great clean pale/wheat malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp dryness. Loved it. 4.13

    Maybe because Illinois extended the lockdown to the end of the month, but this morning has been a struggle. Maybe if I drink this beer, the name will be imparted upon me.

    I’d imagine Adam Schlesinger was saluted here yesterday and I missed it, as we’re all usually good at honoring dead rock stars, but I had no idea he wrote this song (among others). I have a feeling we’ll be posting a lot of tributes to great musicians this month. Fuck, there goes that whimsical nature again...

    As far as sessions go, this is pretty tasty. I'd rather imbibe with this than a can of Miller Lite. Maybe that's just me. Cheers, advocates!

    Good morning, all! I'm drinking this and you're not: Lost Dutchman, a collab between two Iowa breweries (Lake Time and Gezellig). I bought this yesterday, but I obviously could not post it on April 1 because you'd all think I made it up. It is a Dutch (sic) ale, brewed with - get this - stroopwafels. I'm going to add this to the database as soon as I figure out what it is. (Brown ale, maybe?) Anyway... proost!

    Morning from the Wyoming Black Hills.
    Just cleared a path to the firewood and bird feeders.
    Temp is up to 8° with about 5" of snow and plenty of wind.
    Beer.

    Cool! Maybe somewhat sweet for my taste. But I guess the stroopwafel taste can work nice with sweet beer.
    De Molen also has a stroopwafel beer / barley wine called Decadent & Dutch. I'll post it here when De Molen opens again.
    Proost!

    Lost Dutchman is actually a very good beer. There is a little sweetness, but it isn't overpowering. I get caramel, vanilla wafer, and a hint of chocolate and citrus, with a surprising amount of bitterness for the IBU (15). I decided to add it as an English Brown Ale. From the style description, it is very close.

    We get a few De Molen beers here, but I've never seen Decadent & Dutch. I may have to hunt that one down. :yum:
