So it doesn’t actually have a soggy bottom (it’s really a very clear beer) but for some reason I think of the Soggy Bottom Boys from “O Brother Where Art Thou” whenever I think of the Bog Monster. But I digress, so I cracked my 2nd Bog Monster last night. We cracked the first one on Monday and with 9 days in the bottle it was really struggling (and by struggling I mean flat and cranberra-li-cious). Jonathan even dumped out his glass because he thought it was that bad. Well, I’m pleased to report that with a few additional days the Bog Monster has taken a turn for the better. The carbonation has mellowed out the cranberry to a really nice point and it has a nice subtle sweetness that complements the bitterness of the beer. I’m hoping the next week or so helps it even further…but stay tuned for a more “professional” opinion from the brewmaster…after all I was the guy who thought the Swaddling Ale was a solid brew.
