Hook Norton Double Stout and Blackberries
Flavius: I think I need a Blackberry.
Meterman: Why, no one desires to communicate with you.
F: It will help me stay connected to the wired world.
M:Most of us hope you will sever your ties completely.
F: I see all these people looking at their blackberries being important. I feel like I'm missing out.
M: It's a false illusion. Most of them are following RSS feeds about Jon and Kate plus 8 gossip.
Hook Norton Double Stout
Ratebeer 3.51 86th percentile
Beer Advocate B+
The nose smells like blackness; bitter hot chocolate, nuts mixed with malt sweetness. The taste is surprisingly smooth and washes your mouth out with a dry chocolate bitterness. It is similar to a 75% cocoa mass mouth wash with lots of malt.
This brew will not go away. Your palate is blessed with an alcohol and hop tingle that leaves to reveal an everlasting chocolate bittersweet residue.
Alcohol Content -1 4.8%
A lot of stouts tend to be a little low on the alcohol content.
This is stellar chocolate stout, almost better than Young's. I would get it again.

Played it old school today with CSS. I don't play enough so I got owned; at least I didn't make a fool of myself.
A good chocolate stout; enough said.
