Tonight at 6 p.m., EST, I’ll be participating (as twitter username lemasney) in an online tasting event, part of Twitter Tasting Live, more commonly known on
Twitter as #TTL, where people tweet tasting notes all the time, and hash TTL as a way of updating those who are interested.
From time to time, specific beers are chosen for group review, like a book club, and we all get together on a Saturday night, virtually, to participate.
Tonight, we’ll be tasting two British Stouts, and two American Stouts. They each have garnered 98s on RateBeer.com which is no easy task. Rogue‘s Chocolate Stout and their Shakespeare Stout, as well as Samuel Smith‘s Oatmeal Stout and their Imperial Stout. I’ve had all of these before, but am looking forward to having them all again. This will be my first time participating in a group TTL event, but not their first event — I missed that one, and how sad I was.

Also, I’ve done some math on what I can expect to consume in calories this evening as a single taster who does not intend to throw any of this great beer away:
