Hardywood Park Sidamo Coffee Stout

The Sidamo Coffee Stout is back for it’s second release. Built on their imperial stout (which I think is the best “basic” beer they make), it’s big but not too rich. The Sidamo Stout doesn’t skimp on the coffee and lets just a little bit of chocolate in to tie the whole thing together. It’s a limited release but they make and distribute a ton of it so you don’t have to hunt around town to get a bottle. The Bourbon-Aged version is a lot more limited and it’s even tastier. I held on to a bottle from last year and I plan to do a small tasting when I get a 2014.

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings – “Stranger to My Happiness”

I’m a bad fan. I didn’t even know she had been sick. She still sounds great. “Stranger to My Happiness” is the latest single off of their new album, Give the People What They Want, due on 1/14.

Cold snap!


Man-o-man it’s cold out there. I try (and fail) not to cry too much about the weather but this is just too much.

Little car was verrrry reluctant to turn over this morning.
