Saturday night, we stopped at the saloon and picked up a 6 pack of random stouts and porters and headed to Redbeard’s for his birthday celebration!
Redbeard knows how to have a good bonfire! No shortage on things to burn!
Throughout the night I drank:
Dragonhead Stout by Orkney Brewery, Scotland, 4% abv
I think I was expecting a bit more out of it, but it was a satisfying stout but a little thin and watery tasting to me. Nice roasted malts, slight coffee, bitter chocolate, a dry finish.
Mmm and then La Fin Du Monde by Unibroue brewery in Canada. It’s a tripel at 9% abv, at least I found a glass for this one! They did a very good job making a Belgian tripel. Nice spice and warm alcohol, very complex. Moderate carbonation but it still stays creamy tasting.
