A Dark Lager Night

Tonight I am finally getting to the Troegenator that I bought at the last beer tasting. It is a bit of a sweet lager and is a good introduction to darker beers for those who think dark beers are harsh. The sweetness gets quite noticeable as the beer gets warmer. It would be quite nice with spicy food. I'll try it with some next time.

The Irish Red and the Barley wine are going along nicely. Both smell like they should. The Irish is burping at about once per 5 seconds and the barley at once per 12. The barley wine is starting to clear and has a dark caramel color. The yeast seems to be quite deep in the beer, perhaps on the bottom. It will be a good time when I finally get to bottle it.
