  2. Got back late last night. Home, where a man can hang his hat & appreciate living free under the Red, White & Blue.

    Whoever thought of aging stout in whiskey barrels, is a genius! The Beaver grizzly just seems to match the texture and color of the head on this stout. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice, Dd. I may have helped them out on a barrel or two.

  8. The Bourbon barrel aged Ales don't have that much head, maybe 3/16" that dissipates pretty quick. Probably because of the 11% ABV. Boulevard Brewing's is aged in Canadian Club casks. Wondering how Eric liked what he bought?

    Boonville, .Ca. has their own dialect called Boontling. Combinations of Gaelic, English, Pomoan, and who knows what. Makes you madder than a can kicky blue tail ( Boontling for rattlesnake).

    Very much whiskey flavor, with a Stout smoothness. At 6.9 abv it is very drinkable and holds a head longer. One of the best of this style that I have had.

  12. Any vanilla flavor from the Stout would go well with the Wild Turkey but didn't know about chocolate or coffee flavors.

    For comparison I'll comment more on the Boulevard Ale after Eric weighs in.

  13. While on vacation we had plenty of fresh seafood, some good Tex Mex, a steak or two but boy did I miss me some BBQ. So I had to catch a special on all you can eat ribs from 4-6 PM tonight. A couple of slabs later & several Bud Lights I walked out wearing my TFCD a happy man!

    If it’s beer I’ll drink it. Pretentious, slummy, or in between. The question is does Budweiser qualify as beer?

    Here’s my falcon Park with some rich and balanced Brazilian coffee. Photobombed by a couple of oboe reeds and a black bean chili.

    And my Limpia creek at a “business lunch” the other day. I forget the beer. It was an unmemorable brown ale.

  17. That Chili looks great but I would question your choice of what to drink with it. Just me.

    Staying in tonight with some homemade Carnitas Tacos, Chile Lime Rice, & Maestro Dobel Reposado Tequila. My Stetson No.1 hangs in the background. It's going to be a movie night at home.

    Jack; I have not picked up the beers from my buddy. I exchange beers with a few buddies regularly. It allows us to sample many of the plethora of specialty beers out on the market. I suspect I will hook up with him later next week when he is in town on business. I have available for this evening the Founders KBS (https://foundersbrewing.com/our-beer/kbs/). It is a barrel aged oak bourbon barrel stout. A six pack is cooling for me and my dinner guests.

    Beverage this morning: "In between" grilling this late morning. I am hungry for some lunch before guests arrive to share the 1/2 slow grilling pig. They arrive at 5:00pm. I have chicken breasts wrapped with bacon, sweet potatoes and beets grilling for my wife and I. A different Gannon beaver felted hat I chose for my lunch preparation chores. A moss green felt with a gill ribbon treatment is perfect for my task. A sour beer, Omni Grilling Double Rasberry IPA (1.5lb. of raspberry per gallon of IPA beer) is my beverage for the chore.

    Best, Eric -
     
  19. Eric, I will be envious of your guests later. I used to smoke a feeder pig once or twice a yr. They dress out about 45-50# & are easier to handle & not as messy as a whole hog.

    A sixer of KBS? I live just across the border (and just a couple hours from Founders) and the liquor stores around here limit your purchase to four bottles. The Founders taproom is pretty awesome, but so is Grand Rapids in general. Went there for a few bachelor parties including my own. Great craft beer and food scene.

    Now I'm thinking about making a trip to the store before the game...
