Goddamn, the Brookland Brewery Black Chocolate Stout is motherfucking the greatest motherfucking thing on earth. 8.5% and a taste that can cover 45% straight alcohol. mmmmmmm. I'm watching BOTTOM for the 800 time and drinking a BBBCS before I drink another (I'm assuming) mindcrushing double deuce of Smuttynose Barleywine Ale. And we're DONE.

God, the Smuttynose brings the hops. I haven't even dranken any of it yet and I can taste them. God, this is kinda vile. Not actually vile PER SE. It's like alcohol drenched lemonade- so it's kinda gross. God. It's like they added a pound of Sweet N Low to the brewing wort. Don't like it. Nope. Fuck it. It's vile.

Dean, I love your booze reviews as Albert loves his leather pants.

Being on a particularly tight budget, I haven't been sampling as many brews as I'd like lately, including anything from Smuttynose. Most recently, I've been on a Gritty McDuff's kick - I've had the Bitters and the Pale Ale, both of which I'd highly recommend. Harpoon's IPA has a slightly bitter hoppiness that just turns me off, but Gritty's was mind-blowing. Awesome finish, and not overwhelmingly hoppy. I find the overhopping just assaults the senses - starts with the nose, then just focuses on one part of the pallete. A good beer is, for lack of a better and less innuendo-laden term, a full mouth experience.

All that said, would you recommed anything from Smuttynose? It's a brewery with a fair reputation that my local guy carries, so I'm thinking of picking up a six next time I get paid. It's that, or drive to LUKE's LIQUORS in nearby Rockland. (Which carries, among others, a past booze review beer, in Fin du Monde [further aside: do you generally find that stuff fresh when you buy it in the 'states?])

This is completely unrelated but tonight at the sushi place we went for the GEKKEIKAN (gekkeikan-sake.com) EXPERIENCE which was five different shots of sake for $6.99. Later, I was compelled to take a nap.

I like their Robust Porter a whole whole bunch and I'll crack the sampler open tonight or tomorrow night and review the rest. Definately avoid their Barleywine. It is poo.

(God, I couldn't find a double duece La Fin Du Monde yesterday. They just had the 12 ounce singles so I didn't buy any. I've had it in Ottawa and I've had it in Richmond and it tastes the same to me)

I read somewhere once that the reason all of the soft drink makers switched from sugar to corn syrup in the 80's was because sugar prices had gone up and using corn syrup was cheaper.
