This guy goes into the liquor store looking for a sixer of New Belgium Frambozen and comes out with a bottle of Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad. Punch Line? None! That was me! AH HAHAHAHAHAH!
It pours a deep copper color...
While I was trying to cajole Bubble's somewhat skeptical owner to order some Frambozen, I thought it might help if I plopped a nice high dollar beer on the counter. I had seen the Brett Saison in the cooler on a previous visit, so while he was trying to get the distributor on the phone I grabbed a bottle and put it on the counter.
The creamy head is not thick, but pools up in a small circle that floats in the middle...
The owner had to leave a message for the distributor and after he hung up he asked me if I had seen the new Smokestack they just got today.
Just a hint of bourbon and cherries hits the nose. Like no other beer I have tried...
Huh? Say What? "Yea" he says, "they just delivered it this morning. I heard it is a limited edition and that everyone has been waiting for it to come out. "
Creamy and smooth. Smokey, like a fine bourbon.
As I ran back towards the Smokestack floor display I thought, "Legs, don't fail me now."
This beer is rocking my world.
Haiku for those lost in fields of joy
