Beer Buzz
Continuing my efforts to drink outside of my own personal box, I tried a new beer that I would normally have passed by and one that just screamed "DRINK ME" ...yes, I am a little like Alice, if it's beer and it screams drink me, I will....but. alas, it has not brought me any adventures nearly as interesting as those of Alice, but I digress....
Going to start with the screaming one: Clown Shoes Chocolate Sombrero Mexican Chocolate Stout. Now I'm not sure why Clown Shoes decided that summer would be the perfect time to release a new stout, cause I would have gone with fall or maybe even winter, but what so I know...digressing again. I love stouts, so I try to try as many new ones as I can...maybe summer was not such a bad choice, less stout competition Don't let the name put you off, this really doesn't taste much like chocolate, and nothing at all like Mexican chocolate...but, that aside, this is a very good stout. The chocolate adds a rich creaminess that is hard to ignore, wonderful mouthfeel, and full rich flavor. If you like stouts, you really should try this one...even though it is summer. Turn the ac down really low, and enjoy this one.
Now for the one I would have normally passed by: Mully's Blood Orange Blonde! I as expecting something that tasted...to me...rather uninspired and more or less like every other blood orange beer I've sampled. But this one surprised me!! The blood orange is the star of this show....not just an add in, because all the other beers are doing it. The orange taste just like a fresh blood orange smells when you puncture the skin....the blonde ale is the perfect vehicle for this beer. This just may be the best beer Mully's has created, to date...and I am positive that it is the perfect summer beer. Yes, I said that!!! Make sure to try this one before it's gone....I know I'm going to buy a few extra to save for later in the year, when I need a reminder of summer.
