Happy St. Patrick’s Day! What am I doing today? Updating the beer blog, that’s for sure. Other than that, probably going out to dinner and having a few brews with my sister. It’s a pretty relaxing Sunday, which I’m always down for. Today is also my Saturday, so it’s a nice way to relax after a week at work. I usually don’t do Irish food on St. Patrick’s Day, plus I’m craving a steak. Anyways, onto a beer that is not readily available in New Jersey (yet). I’ve had only one other offering from High & Mighty, their XPA which was an Extra Pale Ale that I thought was okay. Let’s see how this one goes.
Style: American Stout
Trivia: This translates from Italian to “I’m exhausted.”
Random: I’m watching a documentary on stress and it’s quite interesting. Well, except for the fact that it basically says that stress is going to kill you. That part is not so much fun.
This brew poured with a three finger, thick tan head that took forever to dissipated and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown color with lots of bubble adhering to the glass but no visible carbonation. The nose was roasted malts and bitter espresso which was really nice. I also got a very odd touch of mint. The taste was sour with a touch of old coffee. Flat out awful. I got some roasted malts as well, but the odd placed sourness made the whole brew bad. I wish the taste was exactly like the nose and it would have been spot on.
