“Icelandic brewer Steðji brewery and whaling company Hvalur teamed up to release the beer to coincide with a mid-winter festival in honor of the Norse god Thor.”  In case that quote was unclear, they’re making a beer with whale meat.  What type of whale is unspecified everywhere I’ve looked.

The brewery website is in, uh, Icelandic? But here’s a link to a story written in english and full of outrage

Super Stout Storm

Its freezing everywhere and we all need to keep warm.  Some people use sweatshirts or blankets or snuggies.  I use stout.  And imperial stout.  And barrel-aged stout.

So, I’ve chosen 26(!) beers to try tonight.  I’ll have help but still, it’ll be a long haul.  Because of this I’m not gonna do typical tasting notes.  I’m not a BJCP judge anyway so I won’t pretend.  Instead I’m gonna drink them all and chose a couple of my favorites to tell y’all about.
