Rogue Dirtoir Black Lager
Cracked open a Rogue Brewery Dirtoir Black Lager this afternoon to go with some "research". My local news stand started to carry that great UK magazine called the Record Collector again and I picked up the latest issue with a cover story on the Clash's Give 'em Enough Rope. Also picked up a great used book called Long May You Run - the Illustrated History. It has a great Neil Young 45 discography in one of the indices - I need to fill some gaps in my collection......
Here's the website for the Brew -------> Rogue Ales
Great chocolate milk head and damn fine smooth finish - wow - this one is nice. I bought 3 over at my local Beer Shoppe and I'm glad I did. Nice ceramic label on the bottle (the art is fired into the glass - not a paper label) - pretty classy...... They have a call to arms on the label too - Grow Your Own! - something about only using ingredients grown at the winery - kinda like an Estate wine perhaps?
