As usual, I was excited for this year’s Snowstorm–I loved last years Sweet Stout. I brewed my first Dubbel this fall, and have gotten pretty heavily into the Belgians in the past year, and so was intrigued by what Dave had to offer. My first impression when I had it a month ago was that maybe my homebrew version had a slight edge, while recognizing that it’s much easier to produce 5 gallons than 500 gallons. Over xmas I had another bottle, and I must say it’s improved. I put a couple away for next year, when I expect it will be off the charts.
My wife and two kids tolerate my love of beer and politics. When I'm not helping out a local candidate for office or lobbying the state legislature on behalf of early childhood issues (my job), I'm making beer and drinking it. I also contribute what insight I have about beer on my own blog, to mnbeer.com and the Twin Cities Imbiber 'zine. View all posts by Eric
