Well when the pike flyfishing is done or lets say when your in the lab, there's nothin like a good brew mates! Now my brew of choice is always a dark beer. I like the thickness and the roasty taste. I love the foam that flows over an ice cold mug on a 90 degree day that says man you have earned this!I have had some good one, Otter Creek Stove pipe porter, Iron Rat stout.....which will kick your ass....and Gritty's Black fly to name a small few. I want to mention Sam Adams Black Lager. This beer has a very dark brown look. It smells like a smokey dark burnt brew. The taste is a dark roast and very smooth. I love the stuff and if your a dark beer fan like me than you will too...trust me! Whats your favorite and would like to here about it.....raise a glass boys you've earned it.....cheers!
