I treated myself to a half pint of the seasonal Blue & Gray Temporary Insanity Imperial Stout. The stout has a faint aroma of roasted malt and caramel. The taste has bitter chocolate with a hint of molasses and citrus hops. The 8.8% ABV is well-masked and my small glass was emptied about the same time my appetizer plate of spicy wings arrived. Needing something to cool the spiciness of the food, I opted for a pint of the Falmouth Pale Ale as a lower alcohol accompaniment.
Before I knew it, the time had come to leave for the swim meet. Feeling good having made a fuel-conserving choice, I grabbed a bottle of the Temporary Insanity Stout to go. I look forward to enjoying it when I have time to linger over a full pint, and then some.
