Another installment in our ongoing "Labelled" series:

Parallel 49 Brewing Company's Ugly Sweater Milk Stout (Vancouver, BC)

LABEL SAYS: A non-recurring character from an episode of late-era Simpsons where Homer does something or another to land the family in a Groundhog Day type spoof, except, y'know, more "current."

BEER SAYS: A malty, creamy elixir that feels more like a comfortable sweatshirt or a well-worn pair of mittens.

DESIGN HARMONY: This beer doesn't phone it in as much as Groening & Co have in the past few years.  Good enough to drink even though Punxsutawney Phil is saying you only got a few more weeks.
