#129 – Allagash Odyssey 2015 and Bad Religion

21 Oct

Allagash Odyssey

Hi there and welcome to the latest installment of two bald gasbags in a basement. This time around, we get into the 2015 version of Odyssey from the venerable Allagash. One neat thing about the word Odyssey is that is on the definitive list of words that are impossible to spell on the first try. Russ thinks this beer would be best paired with “cofee-encrusted turkey jerky,” so you’ll definitely want to listen to figure out how he got there.

Here is something we owe you after reading the beer’s multiple descriptions:

treacle (ˈtrē-kəl) n. – Treacle is any uncrystallised syrup made during the refining of sugar. The most common forms of treacle are golden syrup, a pale variety, and a darker variety known as black treacle. Black treacle, or molasses, has a distinctively strong, slightly bitter flavour, and a richer colour than golden syrup. Golden syrup treacle is a common sweetener and condiment in British cookery, found in such dishes as treacle tart and treacle sponge pudding.

We went to the board of songs this week and Russ opted for Bad Religion. There a several directions you could head with this selection. I’d like to think I did a commendable job.

Couple show notes:

  • I happen to be posting this on October 21, 2015, which is the day 30 years in the future to which Marty and Doc travel at the beginning of Back To The Future II. In a weird coincidence, Russ mentions the flux capacitor at the 1:15 mark despite this episode having been recorded 3 weeks ago. Actually Russ says “flux capacitator,” but he means well.
  • There’s a weird gap in the song at ~16:42 in the episode. I bought it from iTunes! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
