|Judy with her Ayinger Doppelbock beer|
Afterwards, we headed over to the Temple Bar to enjoy a Doppelbock together. I had never tasted this Ayinger Doppelbock before, and I found it to be very enjoyable. Although it's after 5:00pm, I'm not hungry for dinner yet, and I found the reason why, when I looked up some information about this particular beer.
Double Bocks or Doppelbocks are huge beers with enough malt packed in them to consider them a meal in itself, generally having a very full-bodied flavor and darker than other bocks with a higher level of alcohol also. They range in color from dark amber to nearly black. Dark versions may have slight chocolate or roasted characters.I will enjoy a nice meal, but I'll wait until I get a bit more hungry. Tomorrow is the day I will be heading back to Skydive Snohomish to make a weekday skydive with my friend Jonelle. (I made three skydives there last Sunday.) Jonelle is in my hiking group, and she is going to make a tandem jump with her instructor, while I join her in freefall. I've jumped out with tandems before, but it's been awhile. What I remember the most is the difficulty trying to stay relative to the tandem pair, since they will have a drogue chute that shows down their rate of fall quite significantly. It might not be possible for me to stay up with them, but I will jump out at the same time and, in any event, I will be there on the ground when Jonelle lands. (Tandems pull at a higher altitude than experienced jumpers do, giving me a chance to land first.)
