Grim Reaper's Eulogy
One of my minions, a "ghost writer", has come calling again. When I get around to some of this ale, I'll add my two cents. The following comments do not represent my personal views, so tough noogies if you don't like them:

Ghost Writer's Eulogy
I tried this at our Christmas Eve dinner and will say as a lover of Guinness, this has all the same rich flavors, but is smoother.  At 8.5 ABV it makes you do really stupid things!  (Ah, yes TK it surely does, because it is 10%, NOT 8.5 as you claim!  Ha! The Reaper corrects you!)

Imagine me trying to snowboard on my ten foot backyard hill in MN at an age of almost 60???  What was I thinking...or is that drinking?  Dragon's Milk is most enjoyable and I wish I had a photo of me 'd-r-a-g-o-n' my ass up the hill, wipe-out after wipe-out!
