pourn: Twitter Taste Live Dogfish Head

I’m participating in Twitter taste Live on Twitter tonight (Eastern Standard times listed below). For more info on what that means, please visit http://www.twittertastelive.com/events/twitter-taste-live-beer-exotic
and please consider joining us. It’s free, aside from getting the beers, and a hell of a lot of fun.

The beers are estimated using my formula to have a cumulative total calories of  2137.5 for the single consumer who finishes each of them. Wish me luck.

Interestingly, the beers are listed with FAR lower calories than my estimates on the DFH web sites, which I include for comparison.

Red & White – 8:05 pm (oak aged wit, snifter) http://www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/the-brews/occassional-rarities/red-white.htm

25.4 fl oz  * 10% ABV = 254 / 60 = 4.23 beers * 150C = 634.5 C estimated

Fort – 8:30 pm (fruit beer, snifter) http://www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/the-brews/occassional-rarities/fort.htm

25.4 fl oz  * 18% ABV = 457.2 / 60 = 7.62 beers * 150C = 1143 C estimated

Palo Santo Marron – 8:50 pm (wood aged brown ale, pint) http://www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/the-brews/year-round-brews/palo-santo-marron.htm

12 fl oz  * 12% ABV = 144 / 60 = 2.4 beers * 150C = 360 C estimated

  2. @semperfifi so glad to hear it. #ttl

  5. @semperfifi I love the platform. #ttl

  6. @hopwild with great beer, who needs bread?😉 not me. #ttl

  7. @BahHumBrew it’s an amazing way to share, let’s do it more often! #ttl

  8. @TheBeerWench yeah, you’re impervious to calories, but for the rest of us, we need to consider a day’s worth in a sitting. #ttl

  9. @csjo #ttl is the greatest search term that ever existed. We try beer, and wine, and we tweet on it. Join us!

  10. @snax should never stop you, should just make you aware. I’m consuming about 2500 calories today, most of it (amazing) beer. #ttl

  11. RT @beertweeter: @dogfishbeer @zymoid @thebeerwench the best! great peeps, great brews! I’m sticking around #ttl

  12. @beercommdood exactly. I need some detail on why the Calories are reported so low. #ttl

  13. @beertweeter from tonight, Fort, all time? world wide stout #ttl

  14. RT @hopwild: thanks @dogfishbeer and @zymoid for joining us! thx @thebeerwench for hosting! #ttl

  15. @beercommdood she was interesting for sure! #ttl

  16. @Sandorsnow thanks! #ttl

  17. @semperfifi thanks! #ttl

  18. @dogfishbeer can you give me an @ for your lab dude? I have some questions. #ttl

  19. plus, it would take an elephant gun to kill you buzz, just sayin. #ttl

  20. hey, I have to consider the issue, or else I’m obese again. #ttl
  21. @dogfishbeer I appreciate that you are posting calories, but how do you come to your numbers? What’s the serving size? No disrespect. #ttl

  22. @lemasney whoa, 2000 C. sorry. #ttl

  23. @beertweeter I did — for single drinkers, it’s over 20000 calories, IMO. @dogfishbeer differs. http://beercritic.wordpress… #ttl

  24. wondering how to collect my tasting notes effectively for beercritic. #ttl

  25. RT @hopwild: dont forge to follow your fellow ttl-ers #ttl

  26. @kallardnyc re: the video feed?😉 #ttl

  27. @Sandorsnow still finishing bottle one, but I’m with you all the way #ttl

  28. RT @Lotay: “Crash Into Me” – Dave Matthews Band ♫ http://blip.fm/~2r99e

  29. @beercommdood interesting, for sure. #ttl

  30. @zymoid from you, that’s the ultimate compliment. You are a poet in physical action, and we all appreciated it here tonight. #ttl

  31. @Sandorsnow no, I was just leaving half of my bottle full.😉 #ttl

  32. @JugShop Beeeeelllllllccchch. #ttl

  33. enjoyed @dogfishbeer with you all tonight. Thanks! #ttl

  34. @TheAleuminati bye! #ttl

  35. @ErikBoles wish I was, dude. #ttl

  36. I’m so surprised by the flavors of the familiar PSM tonight — so much a coffee stout tonight, never before. #ttl

  37. @TheAleuminati oh yeah. #ttl

  38. @ErikBoles they are the reason I took to twitter for real interaction TTL rocks #ttl

  39. @beercommdood that’s a great summary #ttl

  40. RT @ErikBoles: @DFH‘s is like sex with a 40 year old woman when you are 21: it teaches you things you didn’t even know existed #ttl
  41. @Gservo cool, crazy, and chaotic, but fun, as usual. #ttl

  42. @BahHumBrew the warmth is essential, the aroma moves from subtlety to a command of your olfacatory #ttl

  43. @TheAleuminati so say we all! #ttl

  44. The flavors as it calms are like espresso. So very nice. #ttl

  45. @Gservo coming after we shut down — plenty of pourn, too! #ttl

  46. @TheAleuminati Hi right back! #ttl

  47. “the ones that count are here” That’s nice. #ttl

  48. @ErikBoles well done re: summary. #ttl

  49. @JugShop yeah, how about that.:/ #ttl

  50. has everyone seen the palo santo marron brewing video? Youtube it. @dogfishbeer #ttl

  51. @zymoid it’s such a beautiful layered series of flavors. Not nearly as complex as the others, but like eating a handful of roasted malt #ttl

  52. starts tart, and dark, middle is continuous toast, and finish is long ad burnt. The wood is omnipresent. #ttl

  53. Taste is chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, deep and dark burnt flavor. little sweetness present, this is all about malt. #ttl

  54. SPM is deep, woodsy aroma, sweet, and black as midnight in the woods. I’ve had it several times, but always enjoyable to anticipate. #ttl

  55. @panache yes! #ttl

  56. @Sandorsnow no, why do you ask? #ttl

  57. @zymoid most definitely. You have quite a product here.😉 #ttl

  58. So when is Santo Palo Marron? #ttl

  59. @ErikBoles exactly. #ttl

  60. see you, @beerphilosopher ! #ttl
  61. @AngelosTzelepis sorry if it makes you laugh. #ttl

  62. Dogfish head is brewing beers that make you rethink the very state of beer as an idea. They ask you to set aside your beer definition. #ttl

  63. I feel like the body in the glass is like a mirror, a look at hope for the future. It’s like a celebration in a glass, to share😉 #ttl

  64. RT @ErikBoles: RT @beerphilosopher: Friends don’t let friends drink Fort and Tweet … … #ttl NICE

  65. yeah hops seem secondary. this is about candy. #ttl

  66. The taste reminds me of stone ground wheat in texture, grape soda in aroma, and medicine in finish. The best medicine ever. #ttl

  67. definitely brandy, wheat, raspberry, and honey. Delicious. Agitation brings a strong aroma of whiskey, oak, and leaf mold. #ttl

  68. I doubt highly anyone will be able to taste the Palo Santo Marron. #ttl

  69. Surprisingly well balanced. Not sweet at first, sweetness emerges, nice burn throughout, and long wonderful finish. #ttl

  70. taste is deep, layered with flavors: raisin, cherry, plum, raspberry, citrus, bitterness, burns on the way down. So nice. #ttl

  71. No head at all, but the body is deep amber, just a touch of haze, and visually active in carbonation. #ttl

  72. Wow, Fort’s aroma is wonderful, sweet, and all about raspberries. Some cherry effects, grape soda, and candy all the way. #ttl

  73. @zymoid moving on to Fort then. Thanks! #ttl

  74. @beertweeter thanks! #ttl

  75. so are we moving on to Fort? #ttl

  76. 3-7-2009 7-53-43 PM.jpg [pic] http://ff.im/1oRc9

  77. @dogfishbeer @zymoid thanks for the great work that you do! #ttl

  78. @TheBeerWench we can make that happen next time. #ttl

  79. @dogfishbeer you make fantastic brews. Cheers! #ttl

  80. @beercommdood I don’t think so, it could just be my palate tonight. It’s def not off, but wondered. #ttl
  81. 8:20 what’s next up? Fort, I’m hoping. #ttl

  82. @kallardnyc Reign In Red & White #ttl

  83. I saw that trend post coming. Let’s rock it, tweeps. #ttl

  84. R&W there is definitely a bit of aluminum peeking through somehow. Delicious, not off putting, but surprising. @zymoid, ideas? #ttl

  85. Thanks, all. I think #TTL is the best way to share beers with friends. #ttl

  86. carbonation is not visually evident, but very evident in the palate. Like an ocean. The body is a summer sunset, with rain in the morn. #ttl

  87. mine is warming up nicely, and the aroma is reaching out into the room. #ttl

  88. sencondary tastes are about citrus and rind. The finish for me is lengthening. #ttl

  89. my sediment hasn’t made it into the glass yet, and it’s surprisingly clear. I must have stored it well.😉 #ttl

  90. not sweet at all, so much about the electric palate. very little bitterness, but finish is medium and very much about malt. #ttl

  91. @rgrace99 yep, just paused to record the video for the pour. Uploads later! #ttl

  92. first taste is amazing, very round in the mouth, spritzy and slightly metallic. electric palate, pins in the mouth. wonderful. #ttl

  93. red and white is Belgian aromatics, clear, red, and white head. Very nice to look at and brilliant. #ttl

  94. @beerphilosopher hey Shawn! Great to see you here! #ttl

  95. wow, that kind of blows. #ttl

  96. opened the fort since it was listed first in the listing. #ttl

  97. @dogfishbeer Fort up first #ttl

  98. @biergirl no disagreement.😉

  99. now following @zymoid😉 #ttl

  100. @kyleroth haven’t done as much pairing as tasting, but encouraged.😉 #ttl
  101. Brooklyn Local 2 rocks! #ttl

  102. beers out.😉 #ttl

  103. @TheBeerWench you’re doing great. #ttl

  104. @TheBeerWench wonder what #ttl trends will do tonight, and how that will affect ustream.😉 Cool! stream looks good.

  105. @binendswine happy birthday! #ttl

  106. @MattsAquarium great, tasty, nice #beer like @dogfishbeer or @stronebrewingco

  107. @TheBeerWench so happy to hear you’re going ahead with it. #ustream rocks. #ttl

  108. RT @Bsimi: @rogersmithhotel will officially have @stfler22 @bsimi @chefdeRSH in on #ttl @dogfishbeer tonight. Sweet. #ttl
