I’m onto another documentary on my day off. This one is about the Amityville Horror. I have to be honest in that I know relatively little about this case, but this show is definitely interesting and a little bit creepy. I don’t think I could ever live in a so-called “haunted” house. Anyways, let’s see how it went.
Style: American Strong Ale
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Mission Street is a north-south arterial thoroughfare in San Francisco, California that runs from the city’s southern border to its northeast waterfront. The street and the Mission District through which it runs were named for the Spanish Mission Dolores, several blocks away from the modern route. Only the southern half is historically part of El Camino Real, which connected the missions. At 7.2 mi (11.6 km), it is the city’s longest, and one of its oldest streets.”
Random: The meow is knocked out on a side table. He seriously has the life.
The brew poured with a huge, tan head that was three fingers high. It dissipated slowly and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a dark, clear sienna color with medium carbonation. The nose was nutty, which was to be expected, given it was billed on the label as an “imperial brown ale” but has a heavy medicinal note that I couldn’t place. It almost struck me as minty. Anyways, the taste was much better. It was nutty and rich and really warm with lots of hazelnuts and some nutty malt as well. There was also a touch of roasted, light coffee. The booze was definitely apparent and provided a lot of warming at the end. The body was medium thickness with lower than expected carbonation. I wish it had a bit more. It had a long, nutty finish with booze. This wasn’t a bad beer, but wasn’t exceptional. Give it a try if you like brown ales.
