5 Stones may be the most creative brewery in Texas. Here they have an imperial stout with added molasses (and cocoa nibs and vanilla beans… but they are more typical stout fare). Then they aged it in bourbon barrels. The result is something that tastes familiar but with a molasses flavor coming through that has been mellowed a bit by the barrel aging (it was much stronger in the non-aged version). This is another hit from 5 Stones, and at this point I’ll try anything they release.
Honestly, I was busy doing family stuff today and didn’t really keep an eye on much of anything happening in politics today. I’m sure more people were screwed over by the Trump administration and I’m sure more of the Trump administration was hanging out with Russia, but I don’t have any new or useful commentary. Sometimes you need to just take a day off from worrying about the situation your country got itself into and just enjoy the life you have.
