Sawdust City Le Chandail De Skokie Bière de Garde Ambrée (8.5%)

Sawdust City Le Chandail de Skokie

New from Sawdust City, this one found its way to my door two days ago!

Le Chandail de Skokie —  a play on Le Chandail de Hockey / the Hockey Sweater, but modified to pay homage to one of the three critters pictured below —  pours mahogany with a generous, buttery white head (that’s a bit more citrine than Betty White’s head).

Aroma is pleasant, like maraschino-infused whiskey with whole wheat and honey bread.

It tastes like melba toast and cinnamon hearts. It’s spicy, bready and sharp, with a nice hit of booze.

I would drink this with Cinnabon, Sofia Vergara videos, or a big, fat veggie burger…. maybe all three if I was alone on Valentine’s Day.
