Drinking a Stix Chocolate Chipotle Porter.

Very nice, chocolate and pepper are both noticable in the taste with just a slight burn in the back of the throat from the peppers.

The chocolate comes from fresh roasted cocoa nibs from Theo Gourmet Chocolate here in Seattle.

Sounds like another beer I need to try.

Stone Pale Ale from a 2L growler. I found myself in San Diego yesterday and made it a mission to stop by Stone on the way home. I brought my 1 and 2L growlers and went into the tap room where I saw...

11th Anniversary IPA!

and...

10th Anniversary IPA!!

Both available! Score!...but what about a regular beer that I was hoping for? Easy solution, buy another growler (much easier with the $1 off for the AHA membership). So I walked outta there last night with a 1L of 10th Anniversary, a 2L of 11th Anniversary and a 2L of Pale Ale including the new growler.

Since I'm out of the Samuel Smith Taddy Porters, so can't participate in the beer of the week thread, I'll dredge this thread up.

Tonight I tried a Wychwood Hobgoblin Dark English Ale for the first tmie. Interesting combination of sweet and bitter; the label calls it a moderate bitterness, which is there, but there was a background and finish of dark sweetness. I actually found it just slightly short of cloying, but still short. I could drink another and will probably buy it again, but, for me, it wasn't a "knock your socks off" brew.

Right now I have a Pike XXXXX Stout in hand and it's mighty tasty. The brewer at Pike handed it to me when he saw me walking through Pike Place Market a couple hours ago.

Who me?!

WHy I;m finishing off my keg of Magic Hat #9 clone. I believe it's one of my best brews yet...maybe that's why I drank it dry in only 2 weeks...

At the moment I am enjoying an AG Oatmeal Stout that I made back in November. It is, by far, the best OS I've made and, well, I think I'll have another !!!
