    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    So this evening I started out with some Green Flash. However, I can't remember which one it was, and stupidly didn't pay attention/write it down. I should know better.

    Had some Victory Hop Devil.



    Then on to Duchess de Bourgogne (really liked this one).



    Lost Abbey Judgement Day was kind of disappointing. I much prefer Angel's Share.



    So finally I just a had a little Duvel to top it off.

    Foof - what did you think of the Duvel ?

    I was honestly a pube dissapointed after reading nothing but great reviews for it. I was just expecting more, lets put it that way. The carbonation was a bit much, and it wasn't nearly as smooth as most Belgians that I have sampled. It was still a great brew though that I would buy again without hesitation. The little hint of pilsener that it has is pretty cool actually

    Although, I would take all 3 Chimays and Russian River's "Damnation" over Duvel in a heartbeat. Same with several of the Unibroue belgians.

    Well, the thing about Duvel is that it is so deceptive. It's so smooth and like drinking nothing, you forget how high the alcohol is. It's a good standby, but if you're expecting or in the mood for something that is really going to blow you away, go for something bold instead.

    I must also note that I had the short n stubby bottle which had a bottle cap. Perhaps next time I will go with the large bottle with the cork in it. I would imagine that would be a bit fresher, and would be more to drink meaning I could experience more of the aromas and taste as it settles down in temperature.

    I finally opened my last bottle of Supplication Ale. This beer is so complex, it is closer to wine then it is beer. It's a brown ale aged for 12 months in oak Pinot Noir barrels with tart cherries added. I had this bottle stored for at least another 18 months after purchase before finally putting it in the fridge.

    Nice reddish brown hue, with a wonderful aroma. This is beer meant to be sipped slowly and savored. I wish I had more, but at $10.00 a bottle, it is not in my everyday beer budget.

    Doug, you have to try Angel's Share if you haven't already. Although now that I'm thinking of it, this might not be easy to acquire. I always forget that I am lucky enough to get access to pretty rare or limited brews.

    Last night I had a Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. Dee-licious !!! I'm not very big on brown ales, but this one would pair excellent with dessert or just to throw in the mix if you're hopped out on the bitter sided brews.

    I haven't sampled much from Rogue, but will be picking up more of their brews pretty soon.
