Alpha Klaus Brewed by Three Floyds Brewing
Pours black with barely any light getting through. It has a fluffy khaki
head that fades slowly and leaves nice lacing and retention. Smells like
chocolate and Pine-Sol. The aromas are full of dark chocolate and lots of
citrus. Lots of lemon and pine needles in the mix. Subtle malt notes. The
flavors are pretty bitter. Huge hop presence. Tons of lemon zest and hints
of grapefruit rind. Lots of chocolate. Some roasted malts in the mix.
There's a nice amount of pine needles and pine resin. Drinks more like a
Black IPA than it does a porter. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's medium-bodied,
but feels like it could be on the lighter side of full-bodied. Active
carbonation and smooth and fluffy. Alcohol goes unnoticed. It's easy and fun

The 21st Amendment Brewery today announced the re-release of their holiday

Franklin Delano Roosevelt's fireside chats, which often began with the
words, "Good evening, friends," were hugely popular and his message was one
of reassurance and hope.
