    Greeting advocates and hoppy Monday, as much as can be.
    As I hinted in Saturdays thread, we went for a weekend on the shores of Normandy. Weather was pleasant although sort of chilly and windy.

    Thanks for kicking off Monday. @Shanex
    Nice beach shot, and of course the vertical.

    Making my way through the TV series Ozark, a nice progression of crazy.

    And it is Day Time by Lagunitas

    Still drinking Rainier. Watching USFL football. Fox upstart. The play isn't bad but the stands are empty.
    I don't understand why NFL does not introduce a second tier like the Championship in England.
    Smaller stadium. But can you imagine a 30,000 stadium in Portland?.

    Have a good Monday. Packed up my suitcase with stuff to fly home. Mostly cans with a few big bottles. Probably will be over 50 lbs. Finishing off the lagunitas. The less bottles the better.

    Another night up late means another day early to WBAYDN.

    I've moved on from the bohemian to Wibby Brewing's Double Dunkel, a Dunkel lager brewed with cocoa and vanilla. I didn't realize it had adjunct when I bought it, nor did I realize it was 7.5% ABV, but hey it's pretty good and like a rich stout with some decent Dunkel lager character

    Good day BAs! Thanks @Shanex for starting today's thread. Another gloomy spring day, the norm for NW PA - violent thunderstorms in the area last night but we got missed yet again. Topped last night off with a homemade barleywine and slept like a soggy log - Mrs. Lizard had her night cap of Coke and couldn't sleep - go figure.

    Today's New Breakfast Beer, as I continue reducing the beer inventory:

    Annnd - the photo is MIA. Anyway, my nimble fingers dancing over the keyboard uploaded the photo to some eldritch site on my hard drive, never to be found. The beer was Is sa IPA from Voodoo Brewery.

    At nearly a year old, it's still a decent NEIPA, probably because of the wheat and simcoe hops. Rating 3.74, rDev -6.3%

    Drinking Sierra Nevada Hoptimum. I had one last week, but I had a few beers and it tasted too hot and boozy. On a fresh palette, it's still a little hot, but very tasty and drinkable

    Is that close to Omaha, Utah, Juno, Gold, or Sword Beach out of historical interest?

    Its further north than that. The aforementioned landing beaches are south of Deauville and closer to Caen where the D-Day museum and memorials are located.

    Here I was in Étretat and stayed in Fécamp, two close coast towns north of Le Havre.

    Thanks! The location is quite neat and picturesque as far as Normandy goes.

    I couldn’t get into Ozark. It started off well before I lost interest, but Day time IPA is a great daytime beer. Rightly named and flavorful.

    Think I pounded a little much over the wknd in Miami. Back home, slightly fuzzy, got to get one good beer in to keep my BAC up before starting rehydrating with water for a few days.

    Cheeeeeers!

    Founders Frootwood is in my glass now. I saw this one in the store and got excited. It's as good as I was hoping. Strong aromas of bourbon/booziness & tart cherries. Taste is a little less than the nose. Suprisingly sweet. Strong maple syrup. An excellent beer. I rated it 4.13 a chunk above its BA average of 3.94.

    Sourece: @Roguer (BIF #15)

    [​IMG]

    4.01/5 rDev -3.1%
    look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

    Fine, opaque black body topped with a thick, spongy head; great lacing and sheets of foam inside the glass. Mild dark grain aroma with a touch of cocoa and vanilla on the nose. Rich malt flavor; mild chocolate and cocoa; vanilla sweetness; mild to moderate bitterness. Thick and silky mouthfeel; rich residual sugar presence.

    A very tasty imperial stout with some judicious adjuncts adding depth and complexity to the whole. Smooth and luscious, rich and satisfying.

    Nice enough to venture outside, but we won't be seeing 60 F here until perhaps Sunday. That means Porters and Stouts will continue to be pulled.

    Wow, looks like a pretty active Monday on WBAYDN. Lunch beer...sort of. I'm counting down the days when I can finally have one of my favorite alcoholic beers but until then another new one for me. Picked this one randomly off the shelf. Estrella Galicia 0.0. A product of Spain. Galicia 0.0 has some nice floral & herbal hops aromas. Tastes okay, it just runs out there quite sweet. The sweetness makes it feel heavy and filling. I'd drink this again but I doubt it will be in my NA beer rotation. It's good to have these type to explore when you are not able to have a full strength beer. Cheers and happy Monday!

    Good afternoon BAs! I took a long weekend off from drinking whilst Mrs. Z and I visited Sarasota…drinking my coffee late today - Weldwerks’ “Coffee Coconut Stout”, an imperial milk stout with coconut and Peruvian coffee:

    [​IMG]

    Canned 2/21/22. Tavour purchase. Poured at 55°. Opaque dark brown with ruby see-through body; fast fizzy dark tan head; poor cap retention; fleeting thin ring; brief small island of micro dots; no lace; thin legs. Coconut and roast coffee nose; cocoa nibs right behind; more coffee as beer warms. Entry is sweet milk chocolate followed by light bitter roast espresso coffee; mild coconut middle; mocha latte finish. Light body with very thin feeling; moderate minus carbonation; no warmth from 8% abv. Overall, very good but not great; more coconut in nose than on tongue; roast coffee bitterness balanced by sweet milk chocolate base; an enjoyable coffee forward milk stout.

    4.0 | 4.25 | 4.25 | 4.0 | 4.25
    Score: 4.21 rDev +1.4%

    My back went out yesterday, first time in many months…more mobile today, just enough to fetch beer from my chillers :rolling_eyes::sunglasses:.
    Cheers and have a malaise-free Monday!

    In my experience it takes 20 min or so for beer to get to a nice temp after pullin outta fridge.
    Thats more than enough time to work up a good sweat and work out the old muscles as well as keep beer belly at bay.
    Poured this put, gonna hit it hard for 20 min then enjoy it guilt free
    Don't be a lazy bum, lift weight
