Monday night Trevor was having a few friends over to chill, so we braved the rainy weather and headed over!
We discussed the various runs/ bike rides of the weekend and got to meet his new roommate!
I brought a pumpkin beer to try, since it seemed like a good almost fall like night. I tried the Post Road Pumpkin Ale.
Poured an orange copper. Smelled promising, pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, hops. Taste was weak and lagery. Sorry. Not good. If you are going to add pumpkin and spices to a beer at least first start with a good beer. Hard to get through the whole beer. Fail.
Anyway, Trevor rocks, he has this little gem hiding in the back of his fridge just for me!!!
Yep, Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, from a bottle. I usually drink it from the nitro-cans. So not having the nitrous ball makes it almost a different beer. Still creamy, but a little lighter seeming, not the thick cascading layers you get from the nitrous. Bittersweet chocolate, great aftertaste, medium dry finish. So delicious!
We turned in early since I was wiped out from the bike ride earlier in the day.
I noticed it’s getting dark earlier and earlier, so sad. I’ll miss you long summer days.
