Beer of the Day - BOTD - 2021

^^^
The 4 style Spiegelau set would be a great start. I actually have 2 sets of the stout glasses, and one wheat beer glass set from Spiegelau. I have busted a couple just from washing them, so warn your friend.

I'm not too fussy about having the exact glass for the beer style, but my beers almost always are presented in a glass.

Hmmm... looks like a couple fellas posted before me!

An imperial brown ale from Founder's. 11.1%, cellar temperature.
I was expecting a derivative of Sumatra or Underground Mountain, but this one stands on its own. At first you get an overwhelming sweetness, but it becomes more acceptable as you sip. The booziness was there, but not in your face; it reminded me of Central Waters Brewing efforts.
Actually, it was "elegant." A cocktail in a beer bottle! Worth the 4 pack.

HA so you know what's really funny, she got them today and already texted me (completely unprompted) saying that she's for sure going to break some of these 🤣

Yum.
Founder's reputation as a barrel-aged brewer centers around KBS, but honestly I think Central Waters does it better. All of their offerings have a unique character, and the barrel/alcohol burn is very subtle; almost non-existent. I was worried about the cinnamon, but again, there was just a hint.
Picked up a 4 pack of KBS Espresso Cinnamon Cocoa, too.
