Happy Earth Day! Today I chose a beer that has a tree in its name. See how earthy I am? I’ve also planted two trees this year. If you haven’t done so already, go plant a tree! My two new trees, “Fil” and “Bert,” are growing and boldly leafing out, making my air cleaner already.
Anyway, Dominion Oak Barrel Stout is this week’s beer. For a stout, it’s quite light. It is bubbly and bright, and not very smooth. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a lot of taste or body. It’s a bit flighty – more like a finch in the tree than the oak itself (see, more earth metaphors!). Redeemingly, it smells a bit like coffee.
