Lips Of Faith - Wild² Dubbel - Perfect Belgian Dubbel (rich, malty, some spice) with ... Shisandra berries?

Audible pick of the week: Mr. Mercedes

Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King, narrated by: Will Patton

"In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable."
