    Hosting a potluck tonight for a guest speaker that gave a lecture in our department today (the presentation was on climate justice and indigenous identity in Bolivia, for anyone that's interested), so there's a sixer of Ruthless Rye in my fridge that I'm pretty excited about. Never had it before!

    Holy crap, I love it. Was hoping to drink this before dinner, but I think it will last all night.

    Flower Power! and Terrapin 10th Anniversary glass w/ Leonard Euler and his equation.

    Gentlemen, that is surely true, it is absolutely paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we don't know what it means. But we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth.

    Finally....

    first impressions: bizarre. There's a weird taste in here, and I don't necessarily dislike it, but it's stumping me. Almost a little salty on the finish? But very bitter too. A very interesting beer!

    Later tonight: bourbon barrel barleywine from CW. A night of firsts!

    Much of the initial alcohol burn is gone, I think it is delicious, love the molasses and licorice. Glad I bought a case and kept it cellared.

    I set the Growler aside and am opening a home brew Honey Porter that the beer guy at Liquor Shed gave me.

    It hissed when I popped the cap.
    It pours a pitch black, 2 finger head of foam, outstanding lacing.
    It has a honey sweetness, roasty thing going, slight hint of oxidation in the smell.
    Some roasted malt and honey in the taste with a hint of oxidation...very light tartness. Not bad, and I'll let him know; heck he said he was newish at home brewing. I give him a thumbs up for the effort as it's not close to being a drain pour. Got another bottle of it in the fridge.

    It's a fictional phobia from a satirical sci-fi novel if I'm not mistaken. Then again, I can imagine people being scared of geese/swans in general, they can get pretty aggressive :p

    Trappistes Rochefort 8. Should probably be listening to some Gregorian chant music for the full effect, but I guess some Bruce (The Wild, The Innocent, and the E-Street Shuffle) will do. Belgian and Bruce. Cheers.

    The Laughing Dog Anubis Imperial Coffee Porter was most likely infected. It tasted like green olives, down the drain.

    On to this hot mess, at least it looks like it'd taste good. Also the nearing last of the mediocrity part that was my Christmas gift haul, got a handful of Stone bombers left--rejoice!

    Seriously. Have seen them beat other animals pretty badly using their wings, and really could hurt a child. I have had several pretty rough encounters (like torn clothing and blood on my side) with roosters, so would have to think twice about Black Rooster conjuring up bad memories! I am good with the Goose though...one of the better holiday brews, IMHO.
