My tastings this weekend turned out to be perfect examples of why stouts are amazing. Saturday I enjoyed Milk and Cookies from Wicked Weed – a good stout, nothing over the top, but enjoyable nonetheless. Tonight, I cracked open Christmas Bomb! from Prairie Artisan Ales….I’ve had Bomb! before and hoped that PAA’s Christmas offering would meet the high standards. Well, I think they did one better! What an amazing beer! The thickness as it coats the tongue, the smell and tastes of the spices and the traditional kick of Bomb!
One way I like to determine my like for a beer is repeatability – that is, after I finish, would I want to buy it again. Many times it has been no (and while Milk and Cookies was good, I’m not sure I would seek it out again) but Christmas Bomb! is something I could enjoy year round. I will certainly be on the outlook to buy any remaining bottles of this seasonal beer!! Highly Recommended!
Anyone else have opinions on Milk and Cookies or Christmas Bomb!? Feel free to share with me and the rest of our audience!
