Stout beer made its first public appearance in the 1730’s in Ireland. Today, it is found worldwide. This deep, dark colored, bitter flavored beer varies with each brewer. It is made with barley and several types of malt. It is a darker, richer, hoppier version of a porter a stouter beer!
Stout beers fall in one of four categories: dry stout, milk stout, imperial stout, and oatmeal stout.
Dry stout is stout beer in its purest form. It is dark black with a roasted coffee like taste. Most dry stouts are brewed in Ireland. Even though they are dark in color, they are not necessarily high in alcohol content as some people believe. One of the most well known brands of stout beer is Guinness Stout. Other popular brands are Murphy’s Irish Stout and Beamish.Canada Goose Jakke,Norge,Victoria,salg,outlet,nettbutikk Kjøp Canada Goose Parker

Milk stouts are dark and have a lower alcohol content than dry stout. Lactose (milk sugar) is added to the beer during the brewing process, which makes it sweet, smooth and full of body. Mother’s Milk, Samuel Adams Cream Stout, St. Peters Cream Stout, and Left Hand Milk Stout are some of the top rated brands of stout beer.
Imperial stout is closer to dark brown than the typical black color of other stouts. It has a higher alcohol content (6 to 11 percent) than other stouts and was used to help keep Russian people warm during the brutally cold winter months. Try Stone Imperial Russian Stout, Yeti Imperial Stout, or Siberian Night Imperial Stout.
Oatmeal stout is even sweeter and smoother than milk stout. As the name suggests, oatmeal is one of the ingredients. It is also what gives it a smooth, sweet quality. Believe it or not, nursing mothers in England used to drink it as a nutritional supplement. Popular brands of stout beer in the oatmeal category include Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout, Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout, Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout, and Young’s Oatmeal Stout.
Finding a good stout is very easy with all of the brew pubs sprouting up these days. Chances are there is a brew pub within a reasonable distance of your home. If not, there are many online stores that sell micro and craft beers. Specialty stores such as Cost Plus and Whole Foods sell many varieties of beer as well. Sometimes, they sell single bottles or let you mix and match your own six pack. What a great way to experience a variety of stouts! Home brewers are also in luck as there are many home brew kit suppliers that sell ingredients for making stout as well as other beer making supplies.
May you always have a clean shirt, a clear conscience, and enough coins in your pocket to buy a pint!.
After an extended offseason of honing his body, Kevin Love will no longer qualify for the ‘beefy’ category.
Minnesota’s 6 9 power forward will enter training camp on Dec. 9 weighing in at 240 pounds, down about 25 from his playing weight at the end of last season.
‘Haven’t been this low since my freshman year in high school,’ quips Love, 23, the former Lake Oswego High standout.
How did Love become the NBA’s version of Gisele Bundchen?
‘If I give you all the secrets, then ‘ Love teases during a Thanksgiving weekend visit to the Oswego home of his parents, Stan and Karen.
Love continued his workouts through the offseason with trainer Gunnar Peterson near Kevin’s home in Santa Monica, Calif., but it was more than that.
‘It was taking care of my body, eating the right foods, getting sleep and training the right way,’ Love says. ‘More than anything, I paid attention to what I ate.’cheap nfl jerseys

A sleeker Love will mean more mobility, and will ease the pressure on his knees as they take a pounding through a shorter, but still lengthy NBA season.
‘I’ve worked a lot on my midrange game,’ Love says. ‘I’m going to try to get back into the post more this season. I want to take a step forward with my game.
‘Players are made with their work throughout the summer. I want to come back with one or two new things this season.’
Among the ‘new’ is a six year endorsement contract with Chinese shoe company ‘361 degrees.’
‘It was a too good to be true offer,’ Love says. ‘I couldn’t turn it down.’
Love would have worn Hush Puppies had it meant being able to play NBA basketball this season. He is on the side of those who had been hoping for a collective bargaining agreement to be signed weeks, if not months, earlier.
‘It’s very exciting,’ Love says. ‘Maybe it’s not the greatest deal for us (players) to sign, but in these economic hard times, it’s great to get back to basketball.’
Did the players’ side give too much to reach a deal with the owners?
‘I wouldn’t say a definite yes, but we did make a lot of concessions,’ Love says. ‘A lot of people were jaded and didn’t really understand what the 50 50 split (of basketball related income) meant to the players’ side.
‘There are a few things we gave up that could have gone either way, but it was time to get back onto the court.’
Love says he often thought of the people affected by the lockout who will not be wearing players’ uniforms.
‘This has been disheartening not only to us players, but to employees top to bottom in a franchise from the front office to equipment managers, security, concessions, those who sell jerseys and so on,’ Love says. ‘You have to put it all in perspective and see who else is affected by it.
‘For a lot of people, it’s their livelihood. It’s a lot more than a game, and as players, we need to be aware of that.’
Love, active on Facebook and Twitter (he has 110,000 followers), says he had a lot of feedback from the public through the lockout.
‘A lot of questions were raised every day,’ he says. ‘You had to keep your head on a swivel and hope things would work out in the end.’
Through Love’s first three seasons in Minnesota, the Timberwolves accumulated an NBA worst record of 56 190, including 17 65 last season. The hiring of Rick Adelman as coach gives him hope for immediate improvement.
Love played with Adelman’s youngest son, Patrick, during his high school days.
‘I’m very excited about Rick being the new coach,’ Love says. ‘The cool thing is, he has had success with teams with superstar players, and he has had success when he didn’t have that kind of talent.
‘In 2009, without Yao Ming, he took the Rockets to a seven game (Western Conference semifinals) series against the Lakers. It shows what kind of a coach he is.
