I'm sorry, but they sound adorable.
You're starting to worry me.

It really was a major disappointment to me too.

Contrary to received wisdom cats do not, in fact, enjoy hats.

Unlike rabbits -- who positively SAVOR pancakes on their heads. Compare to cat:

I had a Crispin the other day from the new Whole Foods.

OMG that place is pretentious! But I digress.....

The Angry Orchard definitely has a more 'slap you in the face with apple' flavor than the Crispin. Crispin is way more subtle.

Jenni,
Besides Crispin (which we do NOT buy at Whole Foods), I have been drinking another hard apple cider, Woodchuck Granny Smith, which has more apple taste, but is just a bit too sweet. I tried the Angry Orchard on your recommendation, and have dropped the Woodchuck in favor of the Angry Orchard Crisp Apple, which is now a regular inhabitant of my refer. Yummy stuff. Thanks for the tip.

Tonight I am enjoying "Mirror Mirror" a barley wine from Deschutes Brewery in Oregon. It's a very tasty, ass-kicking, 11.2%-alcohol libation.

Anyone who prefers unusual heavy-taste beers should consider this fine brew - if you can find it. Warning: Not for chugging.

Light taste + high alcohol? Intriguing.

You misunderstood. It is a heavy-taste beer.

I have a Young's Double Chocolate Stout I'm going to tuck into one of these nights. Waiting for the right night.

I've never been a big fan of stout, But I do love chocolate, so that one is a quandary for me.

My big problem is that I normally only have a bottle or two of excellent brew in the refer, so when I run out of that I must revert to more pedestrian beers. Oh, god, life was easier when I was so poor that Budweiser satisfied me just fine (of course, it took a hell of a lot of it).

I like a beer you can stand a spoon up in, but it's a meal, not a beveridge.

Knowing that you are a reasonably gud speler, I had to look up beveridge on Google. After rejecting the English economist and the Senator from Indiana, I decided you must be referring to the Beveridge Place Pub in Seattle. Well played.

I remembered this morning that last year our oldest girl bought me a bottle of chocolate stout and I quite enjoyed it. I just may get another.

Sorry, chalk it up to posting from my phone while out riding around for work.

I always get it confused with the electrostatic speaker manufacturer.

It's a beautiful sunny day in Seattle, I'm sitting on the deck reading a book on the Yanomamo and I've decided to pop the chocolate stout.

It's dark and thick, almost black, with a substantial amber head which does not evaporate.

The taste is smoother and sweeter than I expected.  I don't taste much chocolate, but a lot of molasses and hops.  Unlike other dark stouts I've had, there is not a strong acidic bite, the ale punch I'm used to.  There's just a hint of it in the aftertaste.

It tastes very refined and complex.  There is none of the "rotting leaves and bark" flavor I got from that awful stout I've forgotten the name of (did I mention I bought a beer bread mix for the remainder of the bottle I couldn't finish?  Well the bread ended up tasting like dirt too and got thrown away.)

I finally noticed that you had provided a link to the Chocolate Stout, so I took a look at it. It's the same thing that I had. Not a bad brew. Not something I would drink every day, but not something I would turn down either.

Just threw down a Davy Brown Ale. I'm not a big fan of brown ale, but this was a very nice tasting brew. Not overly heavy on any particular component, just a very refreshing drink. I wouldn't recommend it for breakfast, but it's lovely for lunch. Unlike most brown ales, I think the glass should be ignored and this one should be consumed straight from the bottle.

Another brown ale today. I seem to be developing a taste for the stuff.
This one is Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron.
Roasty  and nutty, with just a bit of vanilla. Quite tasty. Oh yeah, and 12% alcohol. Think of the time and effort I save by not having to use the bottle opener quite so often.
