Well, I started playing WOW. My main motivation is to bond with my sister. And, I admit, curiosity.
WOW is complicated. Not to play, but to install. It takes many hours to get onto your computer. There are lots of "patches". I tried to install it last night and stayed up late but finally went to bed. Then today I had to work but tonight...Oh, tonight. I got to play! I'm already a Level 3 Dwarf Priest. I admit, it's REALLY fun.
To accompany this nerdy game, I needed a nerdy beverage. What is a nerdier snack than the humble raisin, I ask? Raison d'etre is a French phrase meaning "reason for being." Now, the raisin may be humble, but this phrase is not. So I have high hopes for the Dogfish Head's Raison D'etre. It is pretty enough. It pours a nice dark amber and is deep red when held to the light. 1 thick finger of sudsy off-white foam. I am not a great smeller. But I think I smell some spices and raisins. It's an interesting taste. When it's cold it has a little bit of tartness that is not there when it gets warmer. There is sweetness, raisins, caramel, and definitely a strong alcohol presence after a while. It's a definite sipper. It's interesting. I do enjoy it, but it's a special occassion drink. Like, you know, playing WOW. B
I've always enjoyed a beverage or two. But beer is something I have never really understood. Oh, I have drunk it. And I have enjoyed it. But to understand it...that is something else all together. See my "intro" entry from 10/17/08 for details.
