Well…I finally made it to the official halfway point…give or take a half of a beer. Yeah baby! (I can hear the thunderous applause from NJ as I type type this)
182 beers drank.
My weight this morning was 159 lbs…only one pound over my starting weight.
I have had beers from 18 different countries not including the USA.
I have had a beer from 26 different US States. California leading the way with 21 beers.
The average rating (A+=5, A=4, B+=3.5, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0) over those 182 beers is 2.94…slightly less than a B.
I have spent $812.64 with an average price of $4.51 a beer. The high was $13.49 (twice) and the low was $1.27.
I have had 12,108 views of this blog. A huge thanks goes out to all who view this blog and put up with my writing style.
Most of all I have had a great time trying all of those beers I probably would have never tried. Cheers to me and on with the 2nd half of this 365.
I think I’m going to switch things up with a new format in how I write this blog. There will be some general banter followed by six categories (Stats, Appearance, Nose, Taste, Mouthfeel, Overall) in which I describe the beer making it easier for me to blog this every night. I love change and hope you all do to! Thanks again for viewing this and now on to the beer.
Beer #182 is Xbeeriment #44 Smoked Stout by Xbeeriment I/S.
Stats – American Stout with an ABV of 10.49% brewed in Denmark
Appearance – Very dark brown with a huge thick tan head
Nose – Pretty weak with roasted malts, chocolate
Taste – Dark chocolate, hint of coffee, heavy on the burnt flavors, alcohol ending, not all that smoky (I was expecting more smokiness from the name of this beer)
Mouthfeel – Medium body, low carbonation, fairly smooth, not as creamy as expected, a bit of bitterness
Overall – OK…nothing spectacular…very expensive ($10.49)
I was disappointed with this as my halfway point beer. For the price, I was expecting much more and to be honest, to be blown away. I wasn’t. To me , this was an average American Stout. Not really worth the asking price. Oh well…off to the 2nd half. Cheers!
