Heater Allen Brewing - 2009 Sandy Paws
Heater Allen Brewing, located in not-so-scenic McMinnville (it is basically a rural ghetto), has a rather unique line of brews that rarely fail to please. I have had the pleasure of enjoying their traditional lagers in the past but this particular brew is in celebration of the Christmas season. I almost did not purchase this beer because there is a picture of a labradoodle on the label and I fucking HATE poodles. They are more aggressive than any other breed and fucking ugly as hell. Poodles should be illegal to own or breed under penalty of death. Did I mention I fucking HATE poodles? Fucking pieces of shit. In any case, this beer is totally rocking. It is a black lager that has a roasty/smokey chocolate flavor that I did not expect from the packaging. Before the glass even hit my lips I inhaled the intense aroma and it did not disappoint. If Heater Allen's marketing agents had half-a-fucking brain they would remove that dumbass piece-of-shit dog from the label and actually mention that this brew has a smokey chocolate flavor. Too bad they are mentally challenged idiots who will not sell more than three cases of this high caliber brew. What a fucking shame. 4.5 out of 5. Drink it.
