Beer Notes

I haven’t had much from Caldera because they aren’t distributed here in Texas, but I haven’t been disappointed when I’ve picked some up while out of state.  I got this bottle while in Oklahoma.  This is the best yet that I have tried from them.  The overwhelming aroma and flavor is chocolate, and it’s like drinking a dessert.  It’s sweet but not overdone. This is a great porter, one of the best I’ve had.

Other Thoughts

The Democrats in the Senate have enough members willing to filibuster Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch now, which means that either Trump will need to nominate someone new (sorry, nope) or Mitch McConnell will have a vote to invoke the nuclear option, which will get rid of the filibuster in the Senate for good.  I think that Gorsuch is a terrible appointee who will help lead the country in the wrong direction as a member of the court, but it’s hard to argue that we shouldn’t get rid of the filibuster.  So it seems like the Democrats will take this loss, but in the future, when they have a majority, they won’t have to worry about a filibuster anymore, which seems like that’s how things should be.
