Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

This is tonight's countdown to Halloween post (only two days to go). And it is about a spooky beer from Greene King and a too little known monster. So anyway, every year or almost, I have a Gangly Ghoul in one of the local pubs. They serve Halloween themed beers when the season comes and this one comes back often. Well, by often I mean every year. I love it because it is a dark beer that is perfect for a spooky night. And because the ghoul is nowadays a neglected monster of monster lore. Zombies have completely of taken their place as scavengers and eaters of human flesh. This is not what zombies should be, but nevertheless, I find ghouls far scarier. Maybe it's just me, but they are faster and have far more personality. But all these considerations aside, if you love dark beers this one is for you. I know ghouls are from Arabic folklore, but this Ghoul has its place in a British pub.
