happy den


So here I am into day 3 of my 2 weeks off. I was awoken* this morning by a phone call from lowen_kind to alert me to the fact that Atlanta hosts a week-long beer festival at this time of year. He has been trying to get me to the US for quite a while**, and I think he may have found the leverage.

And of course I have to attend the Llangollan Steam & Beer festival in a couple of years, so my holidays are planned for a while.

*I was actually awake but enjoying the warm bed and a long lay-in. It was time to get up anyway - I was delaying that for as long as possible
** You all have.

Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 126: Coopers Best Extra Stout

Coopers Best Extra Stout

Pours a deep, inky black with a thin, dark brown head that fades away slowly.

First sip: dark roasted malts with coffee, chocolate, and a small amount of citrus flavours. A mild hops after-taste that lingers. Mouth-feel is smooth and creamy, with a foamy carbonation tingle on the tongue. Very warming in the belly. And the taste gets better as the beer warms in the glass.

This is my beer. This is the one I drink. If I had a choice between Guinness and this beer*, I would choose the Coopers. This is a YUMMY BEER.

*But not Guinness bought in Dublin. That is far superior to the exported beer.
