The fiance is in Reno this week (hopefully I can get her to pick me us some beer), so I was able to head down to Max's for the Tuesday night beer social. This was one social that I was looking forward to. If you follow the blog at all, you might notice that I do not feature stouts very often. It isn't that I do not like stouts, but I prefer lighter ales, especially Belgians. Well, this week has been for stouts.
Sunday night, I cracked open my bottle of delicious Southern Tier Mokah. A mix of the Chokat (chocolate) and the Java (coffee). This beer gives a great mixture of both of the beers, smooth and delicious.
Tonight, the beer of choice was Heavy Seas Siren Noire. I preceded that beer with Oliver's Bishop Breakfast. Both of the beers were delicious, but I would have to give the Siren Noire the edge, due to it being from a firkin and the lack of carbination really developed the beer into something that was extremely drinkable. Both were beers that I would drink in a heartbeat.
The other beer that I sampled tonight was the BrewDog Tokyo, an 18% stout that doesn't show its strength. I could taste the raisons and other dark fruits, but the high abv was well masked. This is a beer that would get me in trouble if I didn't know what I was getting into. Try it, you will like it.
What did you have tonight?
No laughing matter
