🍩 Help Wanted Nights 🍩

I actually started thinking about putting doughnuts into beer because of this James hoffman Coffee vid (immediately breaking the cardinal rule of steering someone off your mailout that you are supposed to be used to make sales before even the first paragraph)

However, this story is actually true. 

It was 4am, off the New Jersey turnpike, a doughnut shop, and, an off-duty cop with a cliche moustache was jabbing his finger into the chest of a trucker. This loud altercation was something about amphetamines. But it was none of my business. The sign in the window said HELP WANTED NIGHTS - I thought to myself, ain’t that the truth, whether jetlag or insomnia, I had been awake all night, again.

I looked down at my doughnut, simple, glazed, greasy, reflecting under yellowing lights that flickered incandescent, humming like angels, and my coffee, black, lukewarm, burnt, filter, just like I like it actually.

The cup was the strange thing, I had it to go, so it was a real nasty cardboard one, and on it, an ornate Greek inspired, but not really, pattern and amphora. I stepped out of the warmth of the doughnut shop and slipped immediately on black ice in the parking lot.

My coffee liberally scattered across a wide area, but also poured neatly in to my crotch. The cop helped me up and made a joke about fining me for jaywalking. At least I thought it was a joke. I’m not so sure.

And, as I think back.

That cop stole my fucking doughnut. Jord - New Jersey 1998

0.5% coffee and doughnut stout. Not a dessert stout, not too sweet and cloying, but the canned experience of a filter coffee and a doughnut.
