Sierra Nevada Ovila Quad

Prior to having the Ovila Quad, my friends and I drink a little Shiner Ruby Redbird.

I wrote: "Ovila Quad. This beer smells real nice. It smells a bit like the Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. It tastes strong, but not nearly as strong as the 120. Of course, that's a good thing, because the 120 almost burns. A friend of a friend describes the taste as being similar to pomegranate paste. Actually, even the viscosity reminds her of the pomegranate paste." 7:42PM ET

Of course, this led into a conversation about how our past experiences and how we describe them (in words) help us shape how we describe (in words) our future experiences, but that the experience themselves often go beyond the words we use.

I also wrote: "After the strength eases down, the darkness of the beer has a chocolate taste to it." 7:55PM ET

Finally, I also wrote: "Overall, I would have to say I really liked this beer."
