Beer Notes

The aroma in this beer really stood out to me.  It had a smell of sweet caramel and fruit (apples maybe?).  Michelle got a whiff of it while taking pictures and thought it smelled good as well.  The taste was almost all caramel with a little bit of the bourbon barrel while it was colder, but tasted more boozy and fruity as it warmed.  This is a Colorado brewery, but they now have a Dallas area location as well in the former Firewheel Brewing location in Rowlett.  I miss Firewheel but I’m glad that there is someone else there who makes decent beers!

Other Thoughts

Just more of the same today with Trump.  Ivanka is moving into an office in the West Wing and they are working on obtaining security clearance for her.  Trump previously tweeted (on November 16th) that he was not trying to get clearance for his children and that it was fake news that anyone had suggested it.  This is an unprecedented move and there are questions as to how nepotism rules apply.

Finally, there is also news of a lawsuit against Ivanka’s clothing brand, as a competing clothing company is accusing the brand of unfair advantages, citing members of the Trump administration promoting her clothing line.
