Old No. 38 Stout

Looks like there's a new sheriff in town, or at least one that wants some respect. That would be Sheriff Bing-Bing-Bing Ricochet Rabbit and Microsoft with their new Bing search engine product plastered all over the internet. Or maybe Ricochet would just consider being their mascot, whatever. Here's a clip from 1966 that I found of his famous line (go to 1:04, impatient ones) for all of you youngsters. Actually, this cartoon dates me too, but Boomerang from Cartoon Network is a staple at my house.

I'm having another beer from North Coast Brewing Company in Fort Bragg, California today. In case you forgot, I am a fan. So I bring you Old No. 38 Stout which I picked up on my recent weekly trip to Total Wine.

Dark fruit, sweet caramel and a light coffee aroma. The flavors start out sweet and creamy then turn to more burnt, malty flavors. A decent dose of bitter chocolate takes you to a pretty dry finish that lasts on your palate. The beer has a medium carbonation, about right, and is a simple, light-bodied stout. Very easy to drink and a nice beer.
