Speaking of beer, he gifted me a couple of those fancy ones he's always talking about, so I thought I'd give a review of the beers he handed me.
He gave them to me cold, so first thing I did when I got to the hotel 5 hours later, was to put them in MSgt B's Tactical Traveling Beer Cooler. (patent pending)
Then I went to dinner over at the Outback across the street.
When I got back from my horseradish crusted sirloin with green beans and a house salad, I decided I'd start with the Port City Brewing Company 'Optimal Wit'. ('Cause, you know, I'm a very witty guy. Yuk yuk.)
Sample of a typical Dave review of beer: The beer pours a deep copper color with an strong white head. The citrus aroma of grapefruit is noticeable as soon as the cap comes off the bottle. The flavor is full-bodied and rich in citrus fruit mixed with pine resin. The sweet malt comes through at the end. The mouthfeel is thick with a clean finish.
MSgt B's review - Port City Brewing Company Optimal Wit:
Shit. These beers don't have twist-off tops. Where'd I put my keys?
Hmmm, I always did like blondes.
Whoa! Who put potpourri in my beer? It's like when someone hands you a cup of coffee and doesn't tell you it's 'Maple Hazelnut Supreme'. Kind of a shocker.
This actually doesn't taste bad at all.
(a few moments later)
Is that it? Man, that bottle must have been smaller than I thought...
No sweat. It just so happens, I have a second one waiting for it's turn at bat.
MSgt B's review - Devil's Backbone Brewing Company Vienna Lager
I got myself a fresh plastic cup, so my sample wouldn't be contaminated or something.
I'm thinking Dave's pretty impressed with me over that.
Wow. A redhead. (That's the best head I've gotten since 2002. Yuk yuk.)
Wait, there's been a mistake, this stuff is like Campbell's Beer Soup...I'm supposed to add one can of water or something. Seriously, this stuff is like concentrated beer syrup. Wow.
Those beers must be a little stronger than the crap I usually drink, or maybe I really was supposed to water that second one down. It's bedtime for MSgt B.
A steak dinner and a couple fine beers to wash it down. Thanks Dave for I great finish to what's been a very long day. I'll post this in the morning before I get back on the road. For now, it's time to go do something with some sheep.
Oh yeah... count sheep.
I gotta make that clear, since I'm up here in West Virginia. Somebody might get the wrong idea, and think I'm trying to fit in around here.
