I got an unexpected call this morning at work from the brother that doesn't use the telephone very often. Hmmm. What's up? He recently moved back to our home town where his girlfriend lives, got a new job (he said a perk is that he doesn't need to fear being assaulted), joined the Army National Guard and committed to five months of basic training and a bunch of other stuff, and that he is now officially engaged and the wedding is in August! Awesome! Some serious commitments and I am proud of and happy for him.
This evening I'm drinking Moo Thunder Stout brewed by Butternuts Beer & Ale in Garrattsville, New York. The can features a lightning bolt chasing a cow. Sweet, chocolate milk aroma, very malty. Thin and flat, right from the beginning. This beer tried to be sweet, but the experience was more like drinking a sugary coffee with flat Coke mixed in it. Light roasted, malty flavors with a tad of brown sugar. Boring and I'd pass for sure almost every time.
