DRGinLBC, That's quite a collection there! Mind if I pass the list on to some friends who may be interested in buying/trading?
Last night opened a bottle of Infinium. Nice beer, although not worth the pricetag. Would make a nice session beer aside from the high price and 10% ABV. Had a nice fairly crisp and dry body with what I would say was kinda like a "lite" version of a dubbel or tripel.
Right now I'm having an '08 bottle of Black Flag which is about the exact opposite of Infinium. This one is syrupy, dark, with an almost chocolate syrup profile, no head, and probably the lowest carbonation of any beer I've ever had that wasn't actually flat. Intense and reminds me of Ten Fidy without its (IMO) over done roasting that always reminds me of soy sauce.
Don't passover on the rapture!
Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.
last night I cracked open GI's Pere Jacques 2010 Belgian Style Ale
it poured a dark caramel colored body. drinking it, I noticed heavy floral or fruity presence. I think they kept that stuff in the barrels previously used for wine, is what my impression was. the ale also produced some sweetness that is reminiscence of caramel, with hints of spice scattered throughout.
it was a pretty strong beer, although light on harshness.
I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!
Had Left Coast's Asylym on Saturday. Great Trippel. Nice and sweet with an 11% wallop. Also one of the more reasonably priced trippels out there.
Yesterday, I had Rogue's Chipotle Ale. Love the roastiness of this ale. Haven't had this in a couple of years but it was well worth the wait.
