Recommended Posts

Yum is an understatement. :yahoo:

 

Agreed, friend!

 

Pick up the latest issue of Mutineer Magazine and check it out. :thumbup:

 

Indeed! Here's a sneak peak ... :pirate:

As for me, I just finished a Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza on tap. First time having it. The nose on this beer in insane .. so floral and fruity. Totally different on the palate, with just a touch of tartness and nice and funky.

And now just took a pour of Singleton 12 year old scotch. Just got some BenRiach 25 year old single malt and BlackBull 40 year old scotch in the mail ... might need to try that :P

All in good time. ALL issues go out from the printer at the same time, after which they are at the mercy of the USPS. Sometimes they come early, sometime there are some stragglers ... sometimes, some sadly just don't make it.

 

It should be there shortly :)

This is Montana, after all. ;) I'm sure it will be here on time as always. I have never had an issue receiving an issue.

If it was me you were asking.... I initially found it very easy to cozy up to and it continues to grow on me.

Without a doubt, one of the best absinthes I've had. It has a lightness to it that I find interesting.

 

I realize that may be a poor answer.....but I don't feel I have the experience to do proper reviews.

I just know what I like, which is worth about 2¢. ;)

 

I am going to get another bottle though, I'd really like to have my way with this one, open the other to have a glass on occasion and still have one set back for spring.

After tasting it, I have to agree that it would be perfect for the season.

 

:cheers:

Drinking a year old Southern Tier Pumking.

 

Most the spices have subdued and the pumpkin isn't very prominent either. It's malty, but not malty sweet ... tastes like a gingersnap cookie, but the cookie itself with little spice. We paired it with fresh baked and still warm ginger snap cookies!

Is it Friday yet?

It's Friday eve. Does that help, even just a little? :)

 

Last night I found and drained the last few drops of absinthe from a Marteau bottle and a blanche bottle. I mixed it up so I'd have a decent sized drink. It seemed to louche ok.

 

I have a small sample bottle of Hills and a small sample bottle of LTV on my desk. I reckon they're there for emergencies. Let me see what today brings first. <sigh>

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Or this could be a fabrication. :g:

Oloroso Sherry on the other hand...tasty!

 

Indeed!

 

And old casks really worked wonders on Ballantine Burton Ale, especially after 18-30 years of aging. :dribble:

I have had two of these today: an ounce of Bols Blue with a squeeze of lemon juice and a bit of lemon slice in the glass. It's delicious. Does anyone else enjoy this blue bomb as a drink in its own right? Maybe there's a forum ... :g:

Happy Remembrance Day to you and yours, Bob!

 

 

Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti which I'm diggin' on a lot more than I did last year.

 

Wonderfully thick and creamy, extremely dry 9yet not austere0 and roasty with plenty of citrus (grapefruit and Mandarin orange slices), dark chocolate and coffee, vanilla and oak, super-long, mouth coating finish that begs another sip.

Thank you, and you too, Abs.

 

A raising of my glass to all who serve, and served. :cheers:

Bam Noire Dark Farmhouse Ale. Incredibly thick creamy head (really, too much) but it is very drinkable with a hint of sourness that finishes quite dry. It is washing down dinner very well.

 

Edit:

Followed by Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale. Sour? Sweet? It's a Sweet Tart in a glass!

A few things going on tonight.

 

Started off with some Bulleit bourbon.

 

Then a drink my friend created called a creamsicle. Amarula Cream, triple sec, soy milk, and a frozen orange wedge. Pretty tasty.

 

Then some Sam Adams Chocolate Bock. Tasty as well.

 

Then some Sam Adams Holiday Porter http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=473...057.25415799768

 

Then a 2008 Sierra Nevada 2008 Bigfoot http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash...9_8280351_n.jpg

 

Then a 2009 Founders Breakfast Stout http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=473...057.25415799768

 

Then putt putt golf, using half a pool stick http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc...8_6361774_n.jpg

 

Ah, a good Veteran's Day indeed!

 

However, for dinner, we made homemade chicken noodle soup. Everything from scratch, from the broth to the noodles. We go to strain the chicken "extras" and vegetables into a bowl that we think is pyrex or something similar and it's not and the bottom cracks and gives way and we lose almost the entire batch of stock. Nearly 5 hours of work ... onto the kitchen floor. We saved enough to give us 6 people our portions ... but man, it wasn't good.

It appears that Rueverte Uses Snail mail to ship so I am still without a decent absinthe. Perhaps some whiskey tonight, or a trip to the store for a bottle of Mansinthe. Ill will wait to see where my cravings lead me.
