3:1 for Eddie? Wow. You like it strong. I take eddie almost to 5:1.


Sure. Not all the time, but sometimes I like it a little stronger. Even 2/1 at times. But Edouard has such a smooth and non offensive base that makes it very flexible like that. Heck, sometimes I even sip it neat before I add any water.

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

 Interesting. 

In this particular case, "interesting" is my favorite euphemism for "delicious".

This is my first experience with the froggy. I believe I do agree with your sentiments.

Every time I pour a glass of that, I get sadder and sadder. I wanna stock up on some other absinthes I haven't had in a while...but once the La Grenouille runs out, I'm probably just gonna buy another bottle straightaway.

There are very, very few that I like to keep on hand at all times, but the La Grenouille is definitely one of them.

Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout side-by-side with Avery Mephistopheles.

 

Very different animals, but surprisingly complementary.

Ah,those B52s...takes me back to McVan's in Buffalo circa February '79, sittin' (well more like gyratin') in the front row, center stage. :punk:  :mbanana:  :b-day:

It was quite nice.

A little disappointed today. Ya snooze, ya lose. The Abyss, is not to be had in the Portland area and the only place that seems to have it is some joint in Bend, Oregon. I'll plan better next time.

I managed to snag a couple of bottles this year, and, I must say, I was disappointed.

 

It just seems to emphasize the licorice, roast, and cherry bark more each year, at the expense of the chocolate and dark fruit flavors.

 

 

Enjoying a Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout today.

 

Definitely more my cup o' beer, InBev be damned.

You know, Abs, I'm glad you brought "expense" up because the average price of a bottle is now around 18 bucks! I paid 11 back in 2007. Supply and demand.

That stout reads tasty. Enjoy!

I feel ya, Cap'n.

 

InBev may be a Belgian corporate giant, but they've maintained the superior quality of the Bourbon County line, and kept the cost to under six bucks for a twelve ounce bottle. :thumbup:

Rest easy friend.  Just bring a silly straw and a plastic cup in May.
