Good evening, all. Hope youse are well.
Yowie, some fine drinking going on here. Damn Abs, you don't play! I usually reserve something like a Rochefort 10 for a specialer occasion - Cheers!
Louchey - I encourage your experiencing a Rochefort 10 - you can find them at finer beer stores (Beverage Warehouse will surely have it) - but that Westy 12 will be another matter altogether - they are quite rare here in the states.
I agree with y'alls assessments on the New Belgium LOF series - and would extend them to nearly the entire roster of NB beers - most are very "mild-mannered". However, in my humble opinion, they hit a home run with their LOF Cocoa Mole. It's the best example I've found yet of a chocolate-chili beer. To me, it almost tastes as though it's cooked, rather than brewed - if that makes sense. It's food, not beer. Amazing.
Haha, this "Krishan" fellow sounds like a real treat.
Evan, congrats - I emptied my Ridges long ago and have unfortunately not replenished them (mighta had something to do with their absence from C & W). I hope to catch some of that magic emerald green batch #43 we've been teased with. Wow Jules.
For my part, I started with my buddy Mansinthe. Now enjoying a wormwood-minty-fresh Jade 1901.
....now go back to sleep, youse.
