For the children of the 80s who got that blatant reference, full credit. To those who got the reference because you thought Disturbed wrote those lyrics, partial credit. Despite the 80°+ temperatures these days, and the cut-with-a-knife humidity, sometimes I just want to pop open a bottle of viscous, obsidian, imperial stout. People do Christmas in July parties. Why not drink stouts? New kids on the block include two from Evil Twin: Unstouttd (a smoked imperial stout) and Even More Coco Jesus (EMJ w/ coconut). Southern Tier’s Blackwater Series includes Choklat Oranj. Want more orange to the beer? Drink it now. Want it more subtle? Wait a month or two (or even a year). Rounding out the lineup is Captain Lawrence’s Frost Monster, Icelandic Ga Run, Port Brewing’s Santa’s Little Helper, and another Evil Twin- Christmas Eve at a New York Hotel Room (what a mouthful).
Any of these would make a great addition to your build-your-own six pack.
Stay malty, ladies and gentlemen.
