7/22/2010: Met up with my buddy Ryan and his girlfriend at Sharp Edge for happy hour. Ryan makes some really good homebrew, and helped me through my first batch. I actually will be making a batch in the next couple weeks for my buddies wedding. Probably a franziskaner clone, with some honey malt to make it a little different. I always like to put my own spin on things. Oh and a bit of a side note, this might have been the slickest beer glass ever. There was actually a piece chiseled out of the wood block in the picture, and the bottom of the glass was cone shaped so it could rest IN the block. Therefore if you are a few beers deep, and not paying attention you could easily just set this on the table and spill it all over yourself.

Leute Bok is brewed by the same people who brought us Gulden draak and Piraat Ale, so I am hoping the quality is similar. The nose is nice and fruity, with some charred smoke coming through. The flavor is green apples, cherries, light smoke, and some bakers chocolate. Light body and light flavors but they mix perfect. This is one of the more unique Belgian Strong Dark Ale’s I tried in quite some time.

Picture of the day: Little miss duckface is out of control.
