I like grapes, apples, kiwi, and many other fruits. They provide healthy energy, and plenty of vitamins. I like beer. Good, strong, hoppy beer. Apparently in Belgium, they like to drink beer, but ruin it with their daily dose of fruits. I tried the following beers at the iTap Room on Sunday evening: Lindemans Framboise, Delirium Tremens, La Chouffe, and I think Gouden Carolus Gran Cru...after a while, they all tasted like V8 Splash and beer. They all sound "fruity" and believe me, they were.
Luckily, to save the sample paddle from complete doom, I saved the O'Fallon Cocoa Creme Stout for last. It was tasty! It tasted more like a Coffee Stout than cocoa or creme, so maybe the title is a bit misleading. However, it went down smooth, and gave me reason to love the American micro-brews even more...I have to admit, the Cocoa Creme Stout could be mediocre if tasted on its own, but after the hell my taste buds had trudged through for the previous 20 minutes, it was like Jesus turned water into Cocoa Creme Stout just for me!
