I'm here at Eureka! and before the end of happy hour, I ordered a glass of Mission Dark Seas.

This Dark Seas has a very chocolate smell. Oh wait, it just has a stout smell, but it's nice and solid. Oh, there's some alcohol smell as well.

After all the sniffing, I taste the beer and find it has a strong alcoholic taste. To be more accurate, this Dark Seas is really strong. 6:47PM PT

Note that while drinking this Dark Seas, I was also working on a glass of Ballast Point Sculpin IPA.

Eventually, upon finishing off the two, the strength of the Dark Seas was apparent. I also found it had more of a taste compared to the Sculpin IPA.

While it was my fourth beer of the day (I also had a Pacifico and a Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA), the Dark Seas was also my favorite. 7:00PM PT

Remark: Of this beer I also wrote: "I p8je it." Although it took me some time to figure out what "p8je" was supposed to be, I eventually figured it out. Can you? Here's the layout of my phone's keyboard:
Hint: At first I thought the word was "love". (scroll to the bottom of this post to find the answer)
