Founders Dark Penance. I’ll give you the stats first – 8.9% ABV, 100 IBU American Imperial Black IPA. Bitter hops balanced with rich malt flavor. Definite alcohol kick. Superbly rich flavor, good body, and good mouth feel. Very highly recommended.
Samuel Adams Fat Jack. Spice and pumpkin flavors are very light, despite “over 28lbs of pumpkin per barrel”. Malty and a very heavy body. Warm aftertaste with some sips having too much alcohol flavor for my palate. A stout 8.5% ABV.
Overall not a bad attempt by Samuel Adams, but it is nowhere near the autumnal ambrosia of Alewerks Pumpkin Ale.
I had a few friends over this weekend, and as usual, the topic of guns came up. We had a lively discussion about gun rights, and some old friends surprised me with the admission they owned guns. They lean left on the political spectrum and I just assumed they were anti-gun. My friends then mentioned they don’t talk about guns with their friends, as most of them are vehemently anti-Constitution. I nodded, understanding that this issue was divisive, even among close friends.
I miss real journalism. Today’s creative writers just cut and paste. From a Rolling Stone article:
“One of the most popular pistols is the Glock, a short-recoil operated, semi-automatic pistol produced by Glock Ges.m.b.H. in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria.”
“The Glock pistol… is a series of polymer-framed, short recoil operated, locked breech semi-automatic pistols designed and produced by Glock Ges.m.b.H., located in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria.”
