My graduation has brought a lot of fun NEW things…like a camera! I didn’t go big, so no SLR, but I got a pretty nifty Olympus. Also, thanks to my family and friends that know my love for beer, I got quite a few fun and unique beers to try! :D
The VooDoo Stout by Left Coast Brewing Company was the first one I cracked open. I love the name and the design on the bottle…so intriguing. They say don’t judge a book by it’s cover…but I definitely judge a beer by it’s label!
The VooDoo Stout was a delicious treat. It had such a rich malty smell that foreshadowed it’s deep malt flavor. It is very dark and full bodied. It was creamy but not as creamy as some due to its roasted barley addition. This added to the flavor but also made it seem a little less heavy. To top it off there were hints of chocolate and coffee.
The little glass makes me really taste every sip and enjoy it longer! :D
My new camera has influenced experimentation…checking out the different settings. I am not knowledgeable in cameras so I am just playing!
