I prefer beers that do not violate the Germany purity laws. For that reason, I tend to stray far from chocolate, vanilla, wheat, and fruit-flavored beers. That being said, I can not help myself from ordering the beer pictured below (from a visit tonight at Fredericksburg's Park Lane Tavern), because it is simply delicious; perhaps the best dark beer I have ever sampled:
Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout, 5% ABV
More traditionally (for my tastes), my choices for tonight, and the nights that follow:
I am as excited to try the 10th anniversary Stone as I have been any beer because of the solid reputation it has amongst beer advocates I trust (and HERE).
Cheers to me; and to you!!
Reviews to follow in an upcoming post.
