Darkness falls across the land
The midnite hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'awl's neighbourhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist...

The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose

Them CO Nights boys are at it again!!!

This week we try Anderson Valley Brewing Company's The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose Ale.

 

Holy Gose Ale

"With a bright, golden color and tight creamy head, the earthy wood undertones in our Gose develop into a light mineral aroma with a hint of lemon zest and tropical fruit. Before boiling, the wort is kettle soured with lactobacillus, imparting an initial refreshing tartness that gives way to a subtle fullness. Flavors of guava and peach are followed by a slight sea salt dryness and lemon sourness that is enhanced by coriander and post-fermentation additions of salt. The finish is dry, effervescent, and lemon tangy, reminiscent of a fresh sea breeze."

 

AND

 

Saison D'Etre - Mazama Brewing Co.

 

Mazama Brewing Saison D’Etre is an Oregon brewed Belgian classic. Aromatic and spiced in the true tradition with coriander, orange peel, juniper, berries and black pepper. It is dry and effervescent. Fruit and spice flavors balance with soft malt, making it suitable for any occasion.

It was a dusky night in a dirty city when the Console Obscura boys got together for a good ol' jaw-jaw about crime, punishment, moody jazz, and leggy dames - the kind with legs that go all the way up.

Because if they didn't that would be weird.

Dizzy dames - the kind that should probably take a dramamine and sit down, maybe have a glass of water.

The kind that got mixed up with washed up no-good palookas with bad luck in spades. 

The kind you find in... L.A. Noire...
