March meeting recap

Late recap of last Sunday's March 
20 to 25 people met at the New Albanian Brewing Company.
Very successful Stout beer tasting and education by Dennis Barry. 

Three bottles and cans of stout:
Murphy's imported Stout
Dragon's milk
Deschutes obsidian
Samuel Smith oatmeal Stout
Dan Flaherty Russian imperial Stout
Left hand milk stout nitro
Brooklyn Black chocolate Stout
Founders breakfast Stout
Founders KBs
Goose Island Bourbon County Stout
Stone Xocoveza imperial Stout 

And a bonus bottle of 1994 Samiclaus just for the experience. As expected, highly oxidized, with muted flavors, but many expressed that they felt it was still fairly tasty and drinkable. This is a beer that ages well but 30 years it's just a bit too long.

Many items in the raffle. Lots of fun and overall, a great meeting! Next April 14 meeting, Todd Antz will come to talk about the upcoming "Rolling on the River" beer festival, and discount tickets.
