Government shutdown day 2. Draft. Murky briwn, like the workings of Cingress. Aroma of slightly boozy butterscotch. Taste us boozy milk chocolate, rich Butterfingers. Much more palatable then partisan shenanigans.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle… RBSG 2014This beer rocks!… Pours new-penny copper with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The aroma is a luxuriant intermingling of vanilla, hazelnut and chocolate crème. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is a mélange of hazelnut, chocolate crème and cream soda. Heaps of vanilla and a healthy measure of alcohol in here as well. The alcohol is smooth and warming, not annoying. World class beer here!
