Weekend Wine Reviews #143 The One Where I Drink Some Beer

Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout

Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout.  So, Earth Fare was handing out some samples of this for tasting.  I had a sample.  And then I bought their last 6 pack.  Chocolate.  Stout.  What’s not to love?!

Old World India Pale Ale

India Pale Ales.  Or IPA.  For those of us in the know.  I love them.  I love an intense hoppy flavor.  The hoppier the better.  This one did not disappoint.

These are my two favorite types of beer – big hearty stouts and hoppy India Pale Ales. 

What about you, do you have favorites?

Playing catch up with you, again. Sorry I've been so lax...this move has practically done me in. :) the cats. Body language says it all. No need to talk. Get out of my way!

Ha ha, love the switcheroo. The chocolate stout sounds yummy. I am not a big fan of IPAs, I love me some Belgian wheats.

a good yarn said...

Even if the bottle were made of chocolate I still wouldn't drink beer. Blerrgghh!

WHAT!?! Chocolate BEER? I am totally in!
I really like the nuttiness of Fat Tire beer. Yummy.
Speaking of chocolate...if you want to be immediately thrown into your happy place, order some Trentadue Chocolate Amore. It's a port, but with the velvety texture of chocolate. Oh my goodness, oh my goodness! Love, love, love. You will not be sorry. Your welcome.

I am not a big beer drinker and don't care at all for IPA's but I do love a good chocolate stout!
