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.
So Mitch, what did you think of the Mirror Mirror?
