I don’t know wine but this is yummy (from Facebook via IFTTT.)  

Sheaf Stout, tasty example and surprisingly good work from CUB.

King Goblin by Wychwood Brewery

Pretty yummy, but I’ve already had some champagne so temper that with skepticism. Flavours are strong but unremarkable; very nice drinking. from Glenn J. Mason via Facebook

Finally Friday!

Freedom! Fresh-air! Family! Freezing (by the beach)! Sitting in the Blue Bird café (inside the same building that has delicious Vietnamese food by Miss Chu) drinking a decent (but slightly off somehow — not burnt, so maybe just cheap/crappy coffee beans?) flat-white and waiting on a chicken and avocado wrap. It’s the last Friday before two weeks leave. /me sighs Getting some work done too, which is more than can be said for yesterday’s WFH efforts.

I’m not built for 6am

I’m not built for 6am. It’s as simple as that. Jules up early this morning (as always) and as soon as he’s in bed with us there is zero chance that I’ll get back to sleep — he wiggles, he talks, Dee talks back, he wants a bottle, he wants the iPad. All I want is silence and darkness and a few more hours to myself.

Very strong flavours in this barley wine style brew. Malty aftertaste that lasts for ages.

Really unusual for an Aussie beer to have these flavours: rye, of course, hints of vanilla, a lingering aftertaste thats almost bbq pork.
