    Have you ever seen how fast Abyss or Black Butte fly off the shelves? The Mirror Mirror was a disapointment...IMO. Seems to be the same consensus from a majority of craft brew fans posting on BeerAdvocate as well.
    Well, I like it. If you don't, then that means more for me

    I hate the whole rating system on beeradvocate. I love the website as a resource for information on the beer community, but I don't take any user reviews and/or overall scores seriously. The Abyss at #3/100? Hah! What a joke. There is no way that surpasses the Speedway Stout from AleSmith.

    As with most things, taste is subjective. Just because someone thinks some beer going for $30 is the be-all-end-all doesn't mean I'm gonna like it. Hell, some of the best beers I've had have been relatively dirt cheap. [jack] Same thing with cigars. Guys fawn over these high-priced, hard-to-find cigars all the time yet when I try some of them I'm left thinking, "That's it? That's what I wasted my money on?"[/jack]

    The elitism annoys me a lot*. Some of us in the cigar community have a saying, "Smoke what you like, like what you smoke." Same thing goes with beer.







    * however, elitism against the mongols that drink Coors, Budweiser, and MGD is perfectly fine. They deserve it.

    Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence 10th Anniversary – This beer poured out a dark espresso like color with a dark mocha colored creamy head. The aroma was subtle and not overbearing. The beer was very rich! I had a hard time finishing this beer and by the time I did I was kinda full as if I’d just eaten stew. The beer had a mild taste of cocoa with a slightly bitter finish. Unfortunately I was involved in conversation and stopped taking notes on the beer. Overall I liked this beer. I don’t remember the price on it but I’d imagine it was pretty pricey.

    I usually pick up the Chocolate Indulgence around Christmas. The richness seems to go better with cooler weather.
    Wasn't thinking of anything specific
    Like in a dream, when someone wakes up and screams
    Nothing too very scientific
    Just thinking of a series of dreams

    Loved it. One of my favorite Barley Wines. For me, it is better than the Black Butte XXI and a dollar cheaper.
