Last night was shaping up to be a bit of a bore, so I decided to kick it up a notch with an Amuste that I managed to snag in our recent Odell special offer in The Rare Beer Club. The verdict: Wow, what a fantastic beer! Brewed with Tempranillo wine grapes and aged in wine barrels, Amuste is an imperial porter with just the right level of a wine impression without being clumsy or heavy handed. Well done Odell (as usual), I’m a big fan of this one!
To further enhance my evening, I paired it with a tasty Diesel Grind, a medium-to-full strength Nicaraguan handmade which was rolled as a Double Perfecto exclusively for our Cigar Club. I do not always smoke cigars, but when I do, I prefer them with kick-ass beer!
