when pat and katie got home from north carolina thursday afternoon, they brought me home an awesome present(s) from the big boss brewing company. waaay better than the traditional tee shirt (or baseball cap), pat went to the brewery in raleigh and picked up a pair of great beers for me!
the first was big operator belgian ale, w/black raspberries (in, what else, a "big" 22 0z. bottle)! the second was an angry angel kolschs style ale (in a mere 12 oz. bottle). i tried the "big operator" on thursday night - and it lived up to it's billing:
"Belgian Black Raspberry, is a full flavored black ale brewed with imported malt, hops and yeast. This beer is aged for 6 months and infused with 150 pounds of real raspberries. Culminates with an amazing dark raspberry finish."
i look forward to trying the kolsch down the road....
