Had lunch at my 'home away from home', Golden Valley Brewery in McMinnville. I knew it was about time for Mark's Black Panther RIS to hit the taps and sure enough. Warm and fuzzy as a 100 pound puppy! Over 9% ABV, roasty, strong coffee, NO alcohol heat at all. Amazing. As a bonus, he had his first 2008 batch of Geist Bock out. We had a bit of a talk and he's thinking about a Blueberry Wheat this summer. Looking forward to that.
Lunch was a Prime Rib quesadilla with Chipotale sauce. Went well with the Geist Bock. The Black Panther was dessert.
