Probably just jealous that you bought up all the Abyss. :devil:

You shouldn't be, though.

Think of the severe withdrawal symptons I'll be suffering when it's all gone. :dribble:

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?

They'll have some more next February. Long time from now. Can you make it until then, Abs?

I am honestly a bit surprised that no one has started a separate thread dedicated to the Abyss yet. Instead it keeps emerging in almost every other thread nowadays.



Absinthe Helfrich. Today's afternoon absinthe. If you're going to make a new order soon, don't forget to put this on your list.


(Yes, I know I have already posted my opinion about it here; just wanted to steer the thread back to the subject matter. Helfrich really deserves it.)

I've been bugging Erik Frank at the brewery and he told me that they will have it again in February for sure and to keep my eyes peeled. I just want a few to try.

I really want to try the Helfrich. Thanks for the input Mindshifter. It is definitely going to be on my next order.

Mindshifter, you have my confidence as a salesman. Now, could I talk to you about a little loan to finance that purchase?

Not only is Helfrich well crafted and delicious, it is also not that expensive!

(But of course you can always talk to me about a financial loan. It would surely be advantageous for you, since I'm merely a chemist with poor, not to say non-existant, knowledge about economics. I also have a bad short-term memory.)

34 €, eh? That should pair-up nicely with the Prototype Verte, I think.

That's right. My interest lies only in drinking it. And I think Pan Buh got it. ;)
I do like to recommend it though (which should be quite obvious by now). :cheers:

But maybe, Helfrich, you should get Mindshifter to do some moonlighting for you. I bet he'd accept a liquid salary.

And I'd be happy to relieve you of your money. However, in Absomphe's case, I'd probably require payment in bottles of The Abyss.
