Stout Beer Tasting Over The Weekend
Well...it turns out that Natalie likes stouts. Me? Not so much. But...I'm always up for a tasting in a little glass of just about anything. Above are three of the (I think) five or six stouts that they brought and we drank. Did I love them? Nah. But they were all unique. And all interesting.
On the left is Prairie Pirate Bomb. Which has a 98 on Beer Advocate.
In the middle is Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout. Which has a 100 on Beer Advocate!
On the right is Perennial 17 Mint Chocolate Stout. Which has an 89 on Beer Advocate.
Despite the scores, I *think* I liked the Mint Chocolate Stout from Perennial the best. It tasted like - and smelled just like - Frango Mints, which...ain't too shabby for this Chicago-living, Marshall-Field's-going, boy.
Next time, it sounds like the beer guy is going to line up a series of 'sours'. Hopefully pepperoni and sausage thin crust 'pair' nicely with those.
