Fun Guy Beers!

1m6d66d.jpg

Hola mi petite fours!! Here we are again with a spectacular beer Saturday and this one promises to trump them all!!

But how?! What makes it so special? What makes this one so much fun, guy?

MUSHROOMS!!!

I mean, what the double T funk?! How can you have mushrooms in a beer? Is someone sailing me down a billabong?! Am I being sold a pup?

I don't mind admitting that when I first saw this beer my arse spasmed so hard it was in danger of flying off and turning into a swan.

Fortunately, for once, that didn't happen.

So, here I am. Languishing in a prison made of Marriage and advancing age with some mushroom beer. Where did it all go wrong?

Ha! Or how did it all become so right!

I am babbling. Today I am full of the babble. Perhaps its the fear of the 'shrooms?'

Perhaps I am also being slightly disingenuous. Both beers are not mushroom-based. In fact, they are chocolate stouts and only one, the big black menacing-looking can has mushrooms in it.

So let me throw myself through the gates of hell!!

Nothing unusual about this old fellow. A Chocolate Stout by name and a Chocolate stout by nature. The label promises lots of roasted malts and chocolate and that's it.

Oh well. Sounds a bit dull but you never know?

Fairly dark on the pour, light frothy head like a tickled snail's vagina. It looks chocolatey but I guess the proof, is in the pudding...

It's actually not bad. Very drinkable and chocolate'y but could have done with a little more oomph in the body. I was hoping for chocolate madness and burnt malty goodness but it is all rather subtle, on the edge of being just too subtle.

I would buy it again though, so, a reasonable 7/10 booms!

And that, I am almost afraid to say, brings us to the contender. The main event. The elephant in the room. The Mushroom and chocolate stout...

A stout brewed to resemble a dessert dish served in a restaurant in Copenhagen. Sometimes I wonder if some people have too much time on their hands. Hmm, yes. I do.

Nothing for it though, let's go, porcino!!

Straight up black topped by a huuuuuge caramel tan head like someone has cut off a rottweiler's thigh and jammed it in the glass.

I am certainly getting the chocolate smell wafting over from this one. Not just chocolate. It's like an earthy cocoa scent. The more I sniff, the more I am thinking dirt than chocolate.

Dirt? I mean, did they remember to give the mushrooms a clean? I fucking hope so.

Here goes.

Gaaaar, this stuff is honking of mushrooms and a dry, dirty, dustiness like a dead man's attic. It's so horribly earthy. It's like belly button cheese and manure and the taste just won't go away!?!

2/10 booms and the 2 is simply for them thinking out of the box. Even if it didn't work. Yuk. I need to drink petrol or something to clean the taste away.

Oh well, looks like I am into my backup beers tonight!!

Cheers everyone and have a good weekend!

    Holy crap that beer looks good! lol look at all that great post.

  • @pixiehunter

    Ohhh I could sure go for some chocolaty beer. The household is still in their sleepy state, so my chuckle had to stay at a low volume. I agree, mushrooms do not belong in a drink let alone dirty arsed ones. Happy weekend @meesterboom

  • @davedickeyyall

    Silly rabbit... everyone knows you take shrooms with orange juice... or tea... never 🍺🍻πŸ₯‚πŸ₯ƒπŸΎπŸ·πŸΈπŸΉ

  • @penderis

    Haha it is great to find out about the nice beers but it is way better to watch you suffer and go back for more haha. Thought you were going to cry on that second one.

  • @oaldamster

    Harmonising the natural wut...? πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ

    The second one sure was one for the brave of heart. Just like a beer which had a pigs dong dangling in it for a bit, the idea might be innovative and daring, one could easily predict though that its taste would be a wee bit terribly awefull.

    Mushrooms do taste well in something that has beer in it. Dipped in beerdough actually and then deep fried, served with garlic sauce. And of course with a fine season beer to drink.

    Have a great weekend!

    Cheers!

    Damn, I had some hope in mushroom beer, I wanted to believe the words of the bear man, this supplier is failing with his recommendations. Have an excellent weekend, dear friend @meesterboom

    Man!!!! Mushroom beer.

    I've only eaten/drunk.... Got drunk/high on beers and shrooms once. Twas awesome, wandered round a field, stumbled in to a ditch, threw pats at a herd of steer, got the fear as I staired at a tree, and flinched as I span around the stars, spiralling into the middle... of the earth.

    πŸ€ͺ🀣 Never drink shroom beer... unless you're ready to go down the rabbit hole!

  • @ryivhnn

    Least now you can go tell bear man (whom I’m pretty sure reads your blog chuckling all the way and is trying to think what other wacky beers he can feed you) that the mushrooms in the beer weren’t to your liking 🀣

    In December of this year, us Canadians will be able to purchase cannabis infused beers.

    I simply don’t know whether the taste will be better than the β€˜shroom brew you just consumed.

    But the resulting munchies will be legendary!!

    The tears are streaming down my face. O goodness this was priceless - sorry for the taste in your mouth but this made my day. And then while waiting for you to taste it, the sound of footsteps on a wooden floor just to make it more ominous. This was great.

  • @alishi

    This was so worth the wait..... you are maybe not on a high from the shrooms but you surely put me on a high from laughing at that face. Thank you. You are such a fun guy hahaha

  • @article61
