Beer Notes

This may not be the best beer I’ve ever had but it’s not far off.  This is the first stout that I’ve ever had from Begyle, and I don’t really know much about them other than that they are from my hometown of Chicago.  Imperial Pajamas is listed as a coffee stout.  I wasn’t get a lot of coffee at first, but as it warmed, I  could taste it some.  Mostly I’m getting a boozy stout with a caramel sweetness and a bourbon flavor that sticks with you.  (Is this too pretentious?  Is it clear that I have no idea how to review a beer?)  Look.  This beer makes me happy.  And at the end of the day, that’s the best reason to drink.

Other Thoughts

This is a very Orwellian thing to say now, isn’t it?  Negative polls = fake news.  The president is saying that anyone who doesn’t agree with him is fake.  I don’t know who is buying into this.  He listed three of the most respected news organizations in the US and he said they are fake.  Specifically, he called out their polls.  The polls were fairly accurate. Most pre-election polls predicted that Hillary Clinton would win the popular vote by 3%.  She won it by 2%.  That is well within the margin of error of these polls.  The reason Trump is talking about this, though, is because his ban of Muslims is not polling very well. But as the US News article mentions, it’s not important how people feel about this ban. What is important is that it is unconstitutional.  We already have border security.  We don’t need hate from our government.  I’m just going to have to keep drinking to survive through all this crap.
