What ya drinking tonight?

Recommended Posts

Been awhile since I last purchased a CO. MoL would be my first choice of whats currently offered though.

 

L'Ancienne.

 

There is a good book, partially based on fact...The Terror, by Dan Simmons. There is a place in that book where captain Crozier says the day he runs out of whiskey will be his last day....he had a bullet in mind. While I would not go that far... The day my L'Ancienne runs dry will be a terrible day indeed. Hurry 2012 batch.

Very UNfunky.

 

Like too many of the LOF ales.

 

I suppose they're compatible with most of their UNsour profiles.

 

My guess is that LOF actually stands for Light on Flavor. :thumbdown:

It's one of the two finest (and most complex) Trappist ales in the universe, but fortunately, it tastes nothing like cheese.

 

It does pair beautifully with the same monastery's cheese, though. :)

RiV. Onacuz some idiots from the VdT on FB claiming absinthe was never used in cocktails. Specially good real absinthe like Kübler.

I can safely said I'm done with that region of the world. We won't miss each other.

Eh, just a Virginia apple Bold Rock hard cider. Light. Nothing special. Pretty refreshing though.

Krishan is not only batshit crazy, but he's also a coward for posting things on a page that he knows people can't defend themselves on.

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.

 

:cheers:

 

 

 

....now go back to sleep, youse.

If you can get yours in the range of $7.50 a bottle, there aren't enough :worshippy: s I'd be permitted to post, in order to express my admiration of your purchasing prowess.

I get it for a little more. About $10. Still a good price. Friends in Belgium. :)

 

Also, there is apparently a new Belgian Beer webshop opening soon. I'll give it a few trial runs and report back.
