Website description: This new winter beer is full-bodied with a smooth malt character; accented with ginger, cloves and cinnamon.
My thoughts: A light, sweet aroma reminiscent of molasses. For such a darker beer, it’s remarkably light bodied. It’s got a pretty good gingerbread taste, almost like the cookies themselves. Carbonation is extremely low, which gives it a nice smoothness. It’s got a clean finish and has a hint of a wheaty cookie flavor. It’s decent, but there’s not much to it. A nice novelty, but nothing more.
One time, at band camp work, I gave a bunch of good restaurant recommendations. One of my friends was all like “You’ve given us some great recommendations! We’re coming to you whenever we’re going out to eat.” Because I don’t always think things through, I decided to create a website where I can review local (LI/NY at the time) restaurants. Also I am a fatty, hence the name of the site.
That was how it started. I am notoriously lazy and didn’t update more than once or twice a year, if that. There were some dark times, but I am setting off on a renewed venture (Narrator: he stalled almost as soon as he started up again) to bring you not only food reviews from wherever I am stuffing my face (I’ve been to CA and back to NY!), but also infinite beer reviews, because who doesn’t like beer?
