Slide. Slide. Slippity slide… on the Windowsill today!
I’d like to thank the bartender/bottle shop guy at @deciccosbeer for recommending today’s Windowsill brew. He told me it would be delicious, and he did not lie. Have you guys been to DeCicco & Sons? There are a few locations in the Westchester County, NY area, but my go to is the location in Armonk. It’s your typical grocery store, but the craft beer selection is out of this world. Downstairs, there’s an entire row of fridges dedicated to cans. That’s all well and good, but the real main event is upstairs. That’s where the bottles live… not to mention an entire full service bar with food. Yep. A full bar inside a grocery store. Crazy! If you’re near the area, you have to visit!
The Fantastic Voyage is an imperial milk stout at hear—creamy and strong with a roasty base. The special ingredient is the “heap” of dried coconut that’s added in the whirlpool. Tastes like coconut, chocolate sweetness and loveliness. It’s a massively good beer from the St. Louis-based Perennial Artisan Ales. They’ve been around since September of 2011, but this was my first beer from them. I’m definitely thirsty for more.
Final review: If you have a chance to try this beer, do as the great Coolio once said to do: “Come on y’all, let’s take a ride / Don’t you say shit just get inside!”
