Liveblogging the BCS Championship Game.. At Least The Beer's Good

The best defense is a good.. ahh screw it.. don't worry about defense..

That seems to be the motto of the championship game.. boo. The one redeeming quality is my choice of beverage for the night: Leinenkugel's Big Butt Doppelbock (yeah yeah.. two Leinie's in a row). Bocks tend to be my favorite type of beer (read: get you drunk quick.. :-) ) and this is my second favorite bock behind Sam Adams Double Bock. Big Butt (no, I will not make a Sir Mixalot reference) has a nice bite to its texture; definitely not a chugger. It doesn't have the chalky taste of some overdone European bocks I've enjoyed before. The best way to describe the taste is like a porter without the offensiveness. It has a nice dryness at the end but is a bit too yeasty on the aftertaste.

All in all, a good bock and a good winter beer. Too bad the college football season is over.. this would have been a very nice beer to enjoy with some Buckeye football.
