ME! Dat's right sister-brother-men, this week is all about decadence. Decadence of the highest order... I mean beers of course... not vaginas! Oh, you guys. It is quite a fascinating pair up this week. In fact, looking at the beers it looks like Cake Saturday not beer Saturday! I have a white Imperial Stout to start with... Whoever heard of such a thing. Not just any old whitey but this one is a White Caribean cake stout. Does that mean it's not a roasty toasty black thing? Goodness, I can hardly imagine. Then to follow that up we have the notorious Bearded Lady, A dank, menacing, black forest gateaux of a stout. This is shaping up to be a whole pile of goodness and by that, I don't mean one of those ones that poke out of your back chimney! So enough of my vajazzle. Let's get stuck into the cakiest of cakey beers. Starting with that pale and wintry white stout... ![jmgu5_20191116115342894_20191123193015797_20191130175053941_20191207122542798.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPNbEpeRDJatZ8LYCg7F9R15Xs1obH9ACCQaNNZ5DMZEf/jmgu5_20191116115342894_20191123193015797_20191130175053941_20191207122542798.jpg) This one is brewed by Siren Craft Brewing in collaboration with Cigar City Brewing who I quite like. Ooooo, good vibes! It has roasted cacao nibs, vanilla and cranberries and apparently it's harmonised by Cypress wood. This White Caribbean Chocolate Cake nonsense sounds quite lovely. But what is all this ***Cypress Wood*** malarkey? Wasn't that a band? I could google it, I suppose but I'm scared of the deep state monitoring such seditious searches. Aaargh. For the love of God, enough waffling and more quaffing! ![20191207_210215.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmf4RvrHQsLRx8bE8Z5218wECa5ug7dohm44f3MMqfR6Bh/20191207_210215.jpg) It's not black?! It really isn't. Quick, someone call the cops, this beer's off its chops! I have never seen a white stout before. I had an idea it might actually be white. Not just look like a supermarket beer. Oh well, I am sure it will taste magic! https://youtu.be/RfqoT3FGbNs Holy fucking macaroon, it tastes like a wet dog. A dead wet dog. A dead wet dog covered in stinky mulchy leaves. For a moment I thought it might be good then the strange wood taste kicked in. Boak. **2/10 booms.** I think I might eat some of the cat litter from my cats tray to get the taste out of my mouth. Blegh. Now before the next, let's have a guess the tune, steem winning scheme! If you roughly guess the tune this snippet is from you can win some steem!! https://youtu.be/P8sHCTdeYKU Shenanigans over. Back to the beer! ![jmgu5_20191116115342894_20191123193015797_20191130175053941_20191207123221640.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmc2ei5wtRxj5RcbdfZ3iUnyaD6TwTm7Q6ASasaEt5heH4/jmgu5_20191116115342894_20191123193015797_20191130175053941_20191207123221640.jpg) This be the beer that has caused all the penisery confusion of the last couple of days. Well, well, well, bearded lady. It is time to put you to bed. Ahem, as it were. A black forest gateaux. I can barely spell the word but I do like a black cherry or two. Let's get stuck in! ![20191207_211039.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmeFvgTPChYCpt4TR3Ty3Db3T2EqCmT1zrQGrZVzoMgMfs/20191207_211039.jpg) Aha, back in the land of black stouts . Firmer ground all round I feel. It looks a charmer. Like a snake that has been burnt over a wood fire. Mmm, burnt snakes! But the taste? https://youtu.be/zGFW2Gl05WM An amazingly smooth and velvety Imperial stout. Bags of malt but mellow and sweet. It has a cinder toffee linger to it, the cherry from the black forest gateaux is not so apparent until after I have glugged loads of it. A fabby black Knight of a beer! **9/10 booms!!** Well, what a rollercoaster this has been. But at least it had a happy ending! ![20191207_211411.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmV65nmaMfgGbnGJkD4nNrodPL9zwDSusjQPoCpxFFizZC/20191207_211411.jpg) Enjoy your weekend everyone! Cheers!
