Finally, More Insanity

After a false start last week, Park Lane Tavern put on the rescheduled Steal the Glass* night earlier this week, featuring Blue & Gray Temporary Insanity Stout. Despite having had dinner out three of the previous four nights, we couldn't resist taking part. (Hey, Lent starts in less than two weeks; I'll make up for it!) It's also fun way to support our local brewery.

The beer was served in tall 20 ounce pilsner-style glasses with the Blue & Gray logo. I was expecting the usual shaker pints, of which I have many from the brewery. The nicer glass was a pleasant surprise. The intense roasted, espresso flavor of the stout is enjoyable and hides the 13% ABV well. I enjoyed a small bit about Temporary Insanity at the brewpub recently, and there's not much more to add to the review. It tasted great as usual. This time I was happy to have the time to sit for a full glass of the beer, instead of the quick half pint of the previous serving. I have a couple of bottles in the beer fridge as well, so when I next enjoy Temporary Insanity, I might even pour more than one glass!

It was a good looking beer.
*Steal the Glass is a bit of a misnomer. I'm pretty sure we paid for those glasses.

Thanks to Colleen for getting a picture in the low light.
