XXth Beer: Sam Adams Cream Stout
Good shit. Always a favorite.
Remember eisbocks? Here was my first (prior to my record keeping) experience to eisbocks.
Brewed according to the German Purity Law of 1516. 12 fluid ounces. 5.3% ABV.
Of the Warsteiner products this my favorite. A true kingly beer.
Of course, it was good. It is always a favortie of mine. I served this at our wedding but they were in cans. I had free alcohol (wine for the ladies) at our wedding.
I never liked lite beer - it's the lack of taste. And Sam Adams Light still hasn't convinced me either.
From the beer label:
Unfiltered. 12 fluid ounces. Don't know the ABV.
This one was alright. My sister-in-law really likes it. 12 fluid ounce bottle. Stamped July. UPC: 87692 96100.
An unusual name for an unusual beer! a superb, rich, full bodied beer derived from a traditional Celtic recipe. Wickedly smooth chocolate dominates the flavour, which is nicely balanced by the bitterness of the hops, making Old Engine Oil a delicious "after dinner" beer. Try it straight from the fridge.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. From the bottle neck label: This is the thirty first Our Special Ale from the brewers at Anchor. It is sold only from November to Mid-January. The ale's recipe is different every year, but the intent with which we offer it remains the same: joy and celebration of the newness of life. Since the ancient times, trees have symbolized the winter soltice when the earth, with its seasons, appears born anew.
Shared this pint with Dan. His X-mas gift to me. I was supposed to evaluate it but forgot.
N'Ice Chouffe, limited edition, brewed only each winter by Brasserie d'Achouffe in the heart of the Ardennes forest of Belgium. Brasserie d'Achouffe began brewing this intensely complex bottle conditioned ale in 1993.
This deep dark winter warmer is rich in taste, spicy, full of complex fruity, berrylike, vinous flavors that are complimented by malt overtones.
N'Ice Chouffe, is brewed from: springwater, malted barley, hops, thyme, and dried orange peel and a lot of dark candy sugar.
Beer enthusiasts may wish cellar this bottle immediately for enjoyment in the years to come or serve at 60 F as an after dinner drink. The scene depicted on the front of the bottle features a typical winter vista of the village of Achouffe with the chapel of St. Joseph and the brewery in the background.
This one was shared by Dan the Geologist at this evenings poker game.
