I think I have recovered sufficiently to post now. We had a heck of a “tasting session” the other night and I haven’t been able to bring myself to having a beer until tonight. Tip of the day: if you call it a “tasting session” instead of just saying you are going to drink beer, it is much more socially acceptable. 🙂
So, keeping on the seasonal kick, I noticed a very, very festive six pack of beer at Fred Meyer the other day and had to buy it. I think we were too late into it last year to enjoy this fine seasonal brew, and have to say I am kind of sad. Deschutes Jubelale comes to us full of warmth and mirth. A fine little diddy that makes me want to recite the full version of Twas the Night Before Christmas after each bottle. A dark ruby color, a good head, high malts *and* high hops and this is one that will keep you drinking long into the cold winter night.
