The beer of the evening for me is a Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout. That I like this a lot probably surprises no one who has read my posts here, but it's still worth a mention.

Blue Moon's Agave Nectar Ale - Lighter than my usual fare but I like it. Serve cold. Light and mildly malty, with a balanced hop note and a slight boozy sweetness from the agave. Would buy again.

Citrus, chocolate, oats, and so on. Personally, I started ...
