McChouffe Ardens Brown Beer
Oh fer- another beer? Really? We've gotta get some soda on here. I'm starting to look like an alcoholic.
But this one's a doozy, I promise.
The second of those bargain-bin purchases I mentioned, McChouffe here has a bedraggled label (it looked like that when I bought it, I swear.), very little information (contains malt!), a relatively high alcohol content (8%), and, to top it off, a creepy gnome as a mascot.
After all that, important questions remain unanswered.
What does unsettled-gnome-beer taste like? Does it contain beard? Inquiring minds must know.
Pretty darn delicious, actually. The malt flavour is understated, and it's overall smooth and enjoyable.
I don't know about the second part.
And I have a cute new bottle for my collection!
It all works out in the end.
