No misfortune #1

The YFGF Christmas meal was served with Malheur 12° from Brewery DeLandtsheer of Belgium and a 2007 Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Barossa Shiraz.

The first had a marvelous brown-sugary aroma and flavor. Toss in flavors of prunes, toffee, maybe Bailey's Irish Cream. In this case, the 12° is 12% alcohol by volume.

The Shiraz was plummy and oaked, with notes of vanilla and spice.

And for all, it was a good night.
