I had a few Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stouts again. Totally great Stout, definately in my top 5 stouts. I also had a Wells Banana Bread Beer. It was decent. Tasted like if you baked a really good banana bread and dipped it in a yuengling lager.
Then I had a Red Seal Ale. It is a pale ale, but it almost tasted like an IPA. It was pretty tasty, I was happy with it.
I decided last night to buy a bottle of Scotch. I bought McClellands Single Malt Islay. It is pretty wicked, but it has a very strong taste of wood ash. I'm happy with it though as it was $20.

I had some King Cobra today while I watched football. It was pretty good.

Have you had the Terrible? It was quite good when I had it last...

Anyone out there have any Cantillon they would ship me? I will return the favor with quite a few brews in return.

Yeah, I've had 2 bottles so far and it was amazing. Funny thing is, I used to live in Montreal and could never find Terrible anywhere. Unibroue is in Chambly which is a suburb outside of Montreal.... And yet here it is in stock at some shithole College Park, MD

I dont know if it was because I ate an apple first, but it tasted astringent and very bitter for the first glass. after eating normal food it mellowed out some but I think it was just an off-tasting night for me.

Ultimately I got: dry, fizzy, herbal, citrus, bitter finish but I dont think those are for real. my wife loved it. (she is a beer nerd)

make a list of rare beers you like and we'll see if we can send Lars back with some from the store by my place. They advertise 1000+ beers.

I'm not a saison fan, and I never had the Terrible. The best beer i ever had that came out of Canada was Peche Mortel.

Have to agree with the Peche Mortel part of this post without a doubt. I used to hate Saisons, but there are a few that I can tolerate now as long as the spiciness level is tame.

Haha! He will not be able to find most of those listed unfortunately. I will either have to find a guy with a REALLY good hook-up or travel to Belgium/Sweden/Denmark to get/try most of those (as far as the Belgian based brews). The others are mostly one-off releases that never saw distribution. Have him check and I can Paypal him any money and shipping fees if some of those are doable for him in his area.

Realized that after typing. Then read through the list and saw maybe one or two we might see.

Hmmm have a friend in Belgium now... but flying beer back is notoriously a pain in the ***.

I have six bottles of La Terrible and a couple of bottles of Trois Pistoles in my refrigerator right now. Unibroue is one of my favorite breweries.

I think Unibroue needs to either change its name or changes its logo to:

Cayete, Blondie... There are two kinds of beer drinkers in this world. Those who drink beer with puta names like sunshine, and those who drink cerveza para hombres con nombres 'pistoles' and 'terrible'

I just got out of work and am at the local pub. First selection is Lancaster Milk Stout. Not too shabby. It's not on nitrogen though, but it should be.

If he could bring some back from Belgium, I will make it worth his time and effort...
