Bruery Tart of Darkness

Bruery Tart of Darkness: 1.5 – It’s a stout, wait no it’s not. They decided to put spices and age the beer in barrels, and I have to wonder if they just had a large bad batches of beer, and are trying to pass it off as a ‘sour stout’ which are words that just seem like they shouldn’t be in the same sentence. I enjoy tart things, but even for tart this beer is just awful. Bruery is a fantastic company, and we enjoy many of their beers, but not this.

Jura Single Malt Scotch 750mL

I spent most of my time writing this intro trying to think of a clever way to compare Jura and the show ’16 and Pregnant’ with the word ‘disappointment’ as the punchline.  As you can see I didn’t quite make it, though as my first statement might imply, Jura really wasn’t worth me wasting anymore of my time trying to be clever on its behalf.  So here’s Jura: A half decent Single Malt Scotch that things its the shit.
