Had a La Trappe Quadrupel last weekend while watching the 'cross online. Wasn't impressed with it, really. Cloyingly sweet and a bit thin - rather like a Noir de Dottignies, on which I was also never keen.

Happy turnaround from that last night, though. My local is doing a Christmas special on a Winterkoninkske (Winter Wren).



Black, malty and deep flavoured. Absolutely delicious. I'm really starting to fall in love with Brouwerij Kerkom.

Juløl

It´s Scandinavian Christmas Beer (Juløl) time again...and that suits me just fine. All the major breweries (and the small ones too) brew up some very tasty dark beers from mid November till early January.

The "taste testing" has begun.




Not sure why the Sam Adams is there...

This one clobbered me last night:



Aventinus Eisbock. 500 ml, 12%, and a truck load of complex flavour. I've been a big fan of the Dubbelbock under the same name for a while, but this one was a nice treat for me - a beer dork.

I only had the one last night, but I'm certainly feeling it this morning.

Right now I'm drinking a... Duc d'Aiguilhon Reserve des Templiers and it's lovely!

Oops! How disgracefully OT of me! :eek: :D

Finished work for the year at 12.10pm yesterday. By 12.40 I was a the pub, where I spent the last four hours (I usually finish at 4.30pm), given that I had been paid until 4.30pm, I felt good to get on the beers and being paid for it.

Good times.

The Stone Vertical series is amazing. The 09.09.09 is just.... really good. There is a local pub in town with 09.09.09 and 10.10.10 on tap. A real treat.

Keeping with the dark winter beer theme.

Currently, my days consist of skiing, drinking a few pints, and sleeping (vacation). Add in some pedaling to the routine, and I'll have the perfect winter break put together.

Cheers to all!

Watou Sint Bernardus Kerstmas 75cl 10% ABV. A sharper, yeastier taste than the 12 Abt and pleasantly warming on Boxing Day in front of the Zolder 'cross. Enjoying the haze now. :)

I like Leffe and Grimbergen, belgian beer in general, but i don't drink beer much. If I have to drink, it's mainly wine with dinner.

"If I have to drink" (shaking head side to side).

WTF!!

(Calming down now)


Yes, there are many wonderful French wines that, when paired correctly, compliment some meals very well.

(Trying to hold it together)

Um, some Belgian beers compliment meals tool.

I'm, uh, well... I tried.

Well, you know life is not only about beer. There are other stuff that you can do in life.
Drinking is not an end by itself.
And when you train very hard, your drinking decreases naturally. I usually have 2 glasses of wine at dinner and occasional beers from time to time and that's it. Dropping cyclists on the climbs is more enjoyable for me than get wasted everyday.

You are young, so you have not yet mastered the art of doing both.;)

Life is not just about beer. It's just a lot better with beer.

Dropping a competitor is fun. So is enjoying a Rochefort 10. Life is the art of balance.

lol. how do you know i'm young. I'm 30, is it supposed to be young?

Apparently, alcohol doesn't affect you the next day, but the day after. There is a story about Haussler winning a race while he was hung over.

Sorry didn't mean to be a buzzkill in my posts. I'm not like that

It's all lighthearted mate :)

I'm not a massive drinker myself, even though I do enjoy a good beer.
