Good evening! The world is ending.
Let’s have a drink.
This is the Amazing Gotland Campfire Beer. Inspired by the marshmallow monster of Gotland, which is a Swedish island with a medieval city. The beautiful people like to go there in the summertime.
I should note that Michael Myers is both a serial killer and a Canadian comedian. Two sides of the same coin made possible by the Black Lodge.
What we have here is a collaboration. Amager Bryghus in Denmark and Malmö Brewing Company in Sweden. An “untraditional” ale, so they say. It comes in a traditional bottle. But bigger than most. One pint, zero point nine fluid ounces. That is satisfactory.
Let’s see how it pours…
It pours well. Very fluid; it exists in the liquid state typical of most beers.
Now for a taste. Smokey and woody, like the skies above us. Dark and malty, like the state of the world around of us. Smooth and easy, like the downward spiral before of us.
I like meatballs accompanied with lingonberries and cream sauce.
There is still some beer left in the bottle because it would not all fit in my pint glass.
I will fix that now.
