After reading my friend stbs blog and his review and a few comments on the Miller Chocolate Beer I went in search of it today. It wasn't really a long search. I finally got to Pick & Save at 9am this morning. They welcomed me as I entered the store. At least they could have shoveled my parking spot and the lot for that matter. After my really needed items I took a stroll through the liquor department and could not locate the chocolate beer. I asked the woman in the dept. who was busy dusting off bottles and was told they don't carry it.
Later in the afternoon I stopped at the Wilson Park Liquor Store. That's the one that has the two little old ladies working that have not aged in 30 years. My husband thinks they're aliens. That store usually has anything you're looking for, but they didn't have the Chocolate Beer yet. She could take my name down and call me when it came in. I then stopped at another liquor store and the nice Iranian (?) man said "we no have". I was starting to feel desperate. I had a few more errands to run and then stopped at a new liquor store and it was found. On a shelf and chilled. The new owner was like my personal shopper. He showed me around the entire store. Nice store, nice guy. Nicely wrapped in a brown paper sack.
After dinner tonight I removed a bottle from the fridge and poured it into a glass. I took stb's advice so as not to be a heathen and drink right from the bottle. I let the foam settle a little, lifted the glass and smelled................coffee. I hate coffee. I hate anything with coffee in it and the smell of coffee. You will never find me in a coffee shop even to buy a fruit drink. I didn't let that stop me though. I took a sip. There was a slight hint of chocolate but more of a bitter taste like coffee. I was trying to be fair and I tried again. Nope. This was going nowhere but down the drain. Now I don't want anyone to think I have a closed mind as last week I did drink a few Corona's and enjoyed them. Not that it's a premium beer or anything. I just like Miller Lite. I have tried other beers and can have maybe one then it's back to the Miller. I tried to have an open mind, but why drink something that I don't enjoy.
So sitting in my fridge now are 3 bottles of Miller Chocolate beer. That may make a good White Elephant gift.
