Here’s an online review of this beer from some sort of beer connoisseur: “Like a good cheddar, this drinks very well if left out of the fridge a bit – the sharpness of the cold hides the flavours that mellow with temperature. You’ll find that belgian chocolate taste, the espresso edge… it’s best paired with warm socks and a winter evening. It’s to be experienced properly.” It became clear to me that I’m not living the same way as this dude. Paired with warm socks? Huh? I drank it like any beer, and hated it. The more I drank, the less I liked it. It was hard to finish. I did agree with the reviewers comment about the chocolate and espresso flavours. That was another negative for me, though. All in all, a dark, flavourful beer, but not the flavours I’m looking for.
SCORE OUT OF 10: 4.0
PLAYER COMPARABLE: Skip Bayless
Okay, so he’s not a player (although he did average 1.4 points per game in high school basketball), but he makes a living talking sports and makes for a perfect comparison. He’s loud, opinionated, and cocky. For me, he’s just too much. More often than not, I disagree with his opinions. To his credit, though, Skip has a following. There’s a reason he’s being paid a ton of money to talk sports- people are entertained by him. Personally, I find him to be more annoying than entertaining.
