Schlafly’s Irish-Style Extra Stout: Video Proof that I’m a Moron

I picked up a six pack of Schlafly Irish-Style Extra Stout on Friday night and have to say it’s a wonderful beer.  It has a dry, chocolatey flavor and a creamy, satisfying mouth feel. It’s a total treat, and is only available for a limited time, so go snap some up if you’re a stout-loving gal or guy. 

This explains the slow start saturday morning...

I cracked one open Sunday afternoon and was inspired to make a quick video review about the fact that this beer packs so much flavor for a brew with an ABV of only 6%.

I fired up the iPhone, gathered my thoughts and hit “record.”  It was going well until I read the label and realized what a moron I am.  This moment is presented below for your enjoyment.  So embarrassing!

      Oof. That’s all I can say. I posted it as a public service announcement!

    Yes. That extra 2% makes a world of difference. I can’t wait until the BrewDog boys get ahold of this post.

    You are such a Moron, and a Dork too!

      That hurts most Don, because it’s coming from you.

    One more thing: It’s spelled “Schlafly.”

      Good think my beeper didn’t go off while I was taping…

        Good thing. Maybe you should just quit for the day.

          But then who would keep you entertained with their buffoonery?

    Looks tasty, hope I can find it in NY.

      I’m guessing it was for St. Pat’s day, but I found it in good supply at Liquor Outlet in Boonton, NJ.

    I went to the Schlafly Bottleworks last night to watch Barton Fink- they were showing it on a big screen in their tasting room as part of a local university’s “Strange Brew” film series. And they have this on tap now. I’d had it out of the bottle, and enjoyed it out of the bottle, last year. I hadn’t had it on tap until last night. It was amazing, and the perfect compliment to Barton’s descent into hell.

    Strangely enough, I was trying to describe the beer to a friend and I did a GIS looking for the product. Your image was the best one to pop up. I inadvertently came right to your article about it.

      That goes to show you what an iPhone and 2 minutes in Photoshop can do for a picture!
