I bottled my Pilsner Urquell clone tonight. I still hate bottling. I'm going to be storing a friends kegerator at my house soon. I plan on using it after purchasing a 5 gallon keg. The beauty is I get to skip the bottling process. I look forward to that day.

Tonight, I bottled. But, I also invented a beer drink. I'm sure you have heard of a black and tan (traditionally Harp and Guiness).

I invented a black and black. Yup, I combined a cream stout with an oatmeal stout. It was good. Of course, it was nowhere near as visually appealing as a black and tan. I took a picture, but there is no need to post it. Imagine a 24 ounce glass with what looks like a 24 ounces of a homogeneous stout mixture. To be honest, I'm pretty sure there was no layering as seen in a black and tan.

Bottom line, beer is good.

Creamy oatmeal stout. I'll bite. Or drink.

I've heard that stout and Belgian tripel go well together. It might be the only way I can drink a tripel.
