So first off, I feel it necessary to at least mention the fact that it has been a very long time since I last blogged. For those of you that know me, I've had a fairly hectic couple months and what with the relocation, I fell a little out of the habit of brewing, blogging, but never drinking. So after a long hiatus, here's a couple reviews to enjoy.
After reading a post by @ChipperDave (http://www.fermentedlychallenged.com/2008/12/who-is-chipperdave.html) about making beer floats, I was motivated to try making my own.
I used that devil Rasputin mixed with Chocolate ice cream, thinking that would be a nice combo.
Here's my brother prepping the floats.
At first we used only a little beer with about a scoop and a half of ice cream and it was mixing enough, so we used more beer.
Overall, no one was too enthusiastic about the combo. Maybe too much beer, maybe just the wrong type. The hops and the bite seemed to take away from the creamy sweet side of the ice cream. However, the malts mixed well. So I was left wondering if another beer wouldn't be better. Maybe Rogue's Chocolate Stout??
That being said, my mom still enjoyed it.
As did my brother.
The man, the myth, the legend...
