What ya drinking tonight?

Recommended Posts

And, in case you're wondering if I'm just doing'that old Lounge thing, and trying to build a sort of deco skyscraper (a la the Chrysler Building in NYC)...no, it's just that damned incredible of a beer, and I can't help it if I'm completely addicted smitten.

 

I'd make a deal with the devil to be able to get into the beer you drink. Some of them sound very, very good.

Dearest twin...

 

In all honesty, I can't drink the same beer you can't drink.

 

I just suffer through those celiac symptoms onacuz I'm I true hedonist, and the taste of a truly exquisite beer is worth a night of suffering.

 

Someday, it may bring me to my knees, but damned if I won't go down fighting (and relishing every last taste) .

Nothing tonight, but just placed an order for the following which I'll hopefully be imbibing within the next 4-6 weeks.

 

One bottle each: L'Ancienne, La Clandestine, Bourgeois, La Grenouille.

Whiskey Barrel Aged Bigfoot

 

The barrel characteristics add even more fruitiness, nice vanilla and toasted coconut, but at this stage, they don't mesh so comfortably with the huge hoppiness.

 

Very good, but not great.

Tried a beer and actually liked it last night.

Exactly which planet did you say you were from? :blink: :harhar:

Damned lazy kids, and they're annoying acronyms! :angry2: :harhar:

And why are those damn lazy kids annoying acronyms? Personally, I find most acronyms annoying enough by themselves. :biggrin:

And I find those damned lazy kids even more than annoying enough by themselves.

 

I guess between the two, we got 'em covered, bro. B) :cheers:

I love a nice mason jar of Hot Apple Pie.

 

As long as isn't served up to me by Margo Martindale's character in season one of Justified. :devil:

Never fear, beloved twin, you'd be safe... I like you. :devil:

 

And now, it's time to spend the rest of the evening in the usual manner.

 

Drink, Smoke, and Munch...

 

Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

:dev-cheers:

The last time i was in Buffalo, you practically were a kid.

 

Anyway, allow yourself a couple more decades, and, I guaran-damn-tee you, you'll be thrilled when someone calls you that. :wheelchair: :biggrin:

You should make the trip back sometime, you just might not recognize the place...

Larkinville, Canalside, Harborcenter, & Riverworks are just some of the good things happening downtown.

And of course there's always St Patrick's Day, Allentown Art Festival, Taste of Buffalo, & MusicIsArt...

(Sorry if I sound like a Convention & Visitor's Bureau rep) :laugh:

I'd consider making a trip back, except almost all of my old cronies have either passed on, or moved completely away from WNY, so I'd feel like the proverbial fish out of water there now.

 

Those certainly sound like great downtown improvements, though. :thumbup:

 

 

 

Ivan the Terrible today.

Not since Joe Ferguson was QB.

 

An oatmeal stout of my own device. :cheers:

Yup, I remember Ferguson quite well.

 

And then there were all those hand-offs to O.J...oh, wait, never mind. :secret2: :laugh:

 

 

A snifter of the inimitable Fremont Coffee Cinnamon Bourbon Abominable as a proper eye opener this morning.

Glad to see you found that! :cheers:

 

It's terrific, but not quite in the same league with the brandy barrel reserve.

 

Hopefully, when that's next released, it'll also turn up on the same shelf.

I'm sure it all boils down to economics.

 

And, for the record, It's much better than nothing.

 

NC Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Stock is probably in my top five bourbon barrel aged beers.

 

On the other hand, their Brandy Barrel Aged version was my favorite ever, until I tried this year's incredible Anchorage A Deal With The Devil, and Fremont Cinnamon Coffee Bourbon Abominable.
