I was hoping to have more of the chocolate flavor come through than I did. My base beer was an

Interesting. Yeah, I'm not sure, either. I had Almanac's sour porter a month ago, too. I was on

Wow, I just looked up Groupon's fee, and it's 25%. So, the retailer only gets 25% of the price

Bottles, a packet of...
