RocketRay: He even asked for a tour of the brewery for us but was sadly turned down.
Eeteetoo: Uchiha_Cycliste: Eeteetoo: Uchiha_Cycliste: My go to Arrogant Bastard.I prefer Oaked Arrogant bastard when it's available. I'll go out of my way to find TFA's beer.I actually prefer the non oaked version.Any particular reason?I found the oaked to be a little milder, easier to drink, while still being stronger. It seemed like a pretty awesome combination of characteristics while still essentially being Arrogant BAstard."Poured a clear mahogany with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, resin, floral, grass, herbs, and nuts with a very slight oakiness. Taste is caramel, pine, citrus, coffee, herbs, and woody. Feels creamy and smooth with a bitter finish."That's my Rate Beer write-up on it with a score of 3.4"Smells like a rich creamy blend of raisins, piney hops, grass, bread and slightly sweet. Poured a deep, clear mahogany with a big light tan head. Taste is immediately a sweet raisin taste which is followed by that pine hops that smelled before, nice yeasty taste too. Feels medium to full bodied with a creamy texture and a bitter finish."Write-up of non oaked with score of 4.2.Personal preference and all I suppose.
fuhfuhfuh: Cerebral Knievel: and the only beer that is better than that... is FREE beer.Having been to enough free beer opportunities (art openings), I would challenge that statement with Taurino. It is what I would imagine fermented bull urine would both taste and smell like. Pound a couple of those, and you'll know why it was free.
tricycleracer: 00batou: This is like saying blue is the "World's Best Color." But hey, it's good for commerce.Chartreuse. Duh.

drxym: I don't know why Trappist ales are supposed to be special. I've drunk enough of them on trips to Belgium and really most of them taste pretty vile with a high alcoholic content and a taste like malt concentrate mixed with treacle. Belgium has far nicer beers such as lambic beers which are like champagne and much more palatable. Gueuze in particular is very good.
Odd Bird: (checks stores link)Florida.IllinoisShat, no Georgia.
VoodooTaco: elffster: Oh lets see...a few favorites from the last stretch of beer gettin':....Aventinius may be my favorite German beer I've ever drank of any style. Fin du Monde also way up there.What's the brand on that last Abbey ale? Looks like it reads New Belgium (I assume NB Brewing Co.) but the label doesn't match their Abbey ale.Thanks in advance!

Gawdzila: Man, tragedy!

illannoyin: Yeah, no. This...[www.bruguru.com image 800x565]Is the best beer in the world./Anything better than that is too dangerous to think of
TheRealAde: curtis_e_bare: I have eleven bottles of Westvleteren 12 in my basement so I'm getting a kick out of these replies...Can I ask where you got it? I see $40/btl @Belgian Shop.My husband wants it but didn't mention it until it was too late - local stores told me they had 150 people in line before they opened. I would be willing to shell out some $ for it, but not $40+shipping.
imashark: *ahem*would like a word
dchurch0: I want this, but I live in Nebraska. Probably not gonna happen.
Eeteetoo: My fave is the Indian Brown Ale.
High Karate: Check that, Devil's Backbone is the name of the brewery. Doh.
