Not extra large...
But the fortieth edition of BOH is extra good. Today's Happy Hour began sometime around 1300 hrs and is still goin' on as we speak, for it is the MOST magnificent day here on The High Plains o' New Mexico. And we should be drinkin' a most magnificent beer now, shouldn't we? The Bros REALLY like this beer, and I gotta admit I do, too. From their (world class) review:
Taste: Silky smooth with a nice medium bodied mouth feel. After the luscious mouth feel come the flavour which is quite malty ... light acidic twang from the roasted malts, a little dark roasted coffee flavour and an underlying toasted biscuit taste are balanced with a perfect combo of hop and roasted malt bitterness. The lingering after taste is of faded burnt sugar, drying grain and a slightly warming alcohol. A wonderful yet delicate hop character helps to round this brew also.Yeah. What he said. And now it's back out on the verandah to continue as we've begun. It's a three-cigar sorta day, and a three (or more) beer day, too.
Notes: Oh baby! There are good porters and then there are great porters ... this one goes down as a great one, no doubt!
Life is good.
