Not sure if you're a porter fan or not, but this stuff looks good.

God all vanilla beers sound so good to me. Unfortunately that one isn't available near me, according to their beer locator.

When I go to pick up mine I'd be willing to get another to send out to you for a trade of equal value (its $20 [the restaurant marks it up of course, but they're cool enough to let me take it out] and about the size of a wine bottle) if they have any others left (they only had 3 as of Saturday). If they're out, would you want the Thrash Metal beer? They have that too and its a bit cheaper (its a strong Belgian. Here it is on Beer Advocate) and I'd be willing to do the same.

I get most Dogfish Head out here, though I haven't heard of those others. I'll check 'em out and see IF THEY ARE WORTHY!

Vodka is really the only alcoholic substance I drink, so it was inevitable that I try this.. Would be a waste to drink this straight since you can get wasted with stuff nearly as good for much cheaper, but it's one of the better brands that I've tried so far.

actually, this is the only "premium" vodka I've tried to date. I have doubts that things get better the more you pay with this stuff.

Somewhere in Germany, Gerre from Tankard just shed a tear of pride. If it was named "Chemical Invasion", I'd try it.

Buffalo Trace

I just ran out of this and I'm fucking pissed.. Got some cheap rye sitting around, but it just isn't the same :bawling:

Recently I went to the Yokohama Oktoberfest...here's a few crappy pics.

It was a great time and nice to see some beers available that usually aren't. It was expensive as hell though because with each beer you paid a deposit for the glass. You could turn it in and get another beer (had to pay for the beer itself obviously) or you could just keep the glass. I wound up with 4 or 5 glasses in my backpack by the end of the night. Luckily, none broke on the train ride home. :beer:

Cool. Glad you had some fun. It looks like they had a great turnout for it. :) :beer:

xgrafcorex 2012-10-31 05:11

A bit too great of a turnout I'd say. It was very crowded, tough to get a seat. Definitely a good time though, we went there after watching a Japanese baseball game. Also a good time. They definitely know how to do baseball. Beer girls walk buy every other minute it seems. If you are drinking several beers at the game, there is no reason you would be empty handed unless you ran out of yen. :p

Awww yea! Just got home from a friends house, who was able to pick up a gift box set of Westvleteren 12. http://i.imgur.com/9xfMa.jpg

Number 1 on the RB list: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/top-50/
Number 2 on the BA list, which it used to be #1 when I lived in FL: http://beeradvocate.com/lists/popular

Needless to say, I've been dying to try this stuff since I first heard about it, which was maybe 2005 or 2006.

Well it was pretty damn good to say the least! If you've had St Bernardus 12, it's VERY similar. I'd say it's a bit of a toss up as to which is better. The fact that it's hard to get this stuff probably makes people lean more towards it but I'd rather try them side by side. Either way it's really delicious! :beer:

The bad news is, no telling when I'll ever get to try it again. :bawling:

Dyldo 2012-12-02 19:57

You lucky son of a bitch! Did your friend get them off ebay or did he bring them back from Europe or what? Give me some nice details of how tasty I'm sure it was.

xgrafcorex 2013-06-30 00:36

Sorry it took me a minute to respond. There was a small beer shop right near the base in Yokosuka that had some good stuff and the owner would randomly get different things which if you didn't get during that time, he probably won't have again for a while. Westvleteren decided to export the beer one time, probably due to popular demand, and the guy at the shop happened to receive a few boxes of it (gift boxes with the glasses and a 6 pack).

It was pretty damn good. Similar to the St. Bernardus Abt 12. If you haven't had that, I highly recommend it.

Someone just posted this http://i.imgur.com/9waCsLK.jpg and now I must find this beer!

Requiem 2013-08-01 19:27

taking a break from all the Dogfish head and Deadguy products to experiment with whiskeys!

so far I've tried Buffalo Trace and really enjoyed it. thinking a nice single malt will be next.

xgrafcorex 2013-08-03 21:38

Try Laphroaig or Talisker, they aren't the cheapest but they're damn good.

Requiem 2013-08-19 17:41

ending up going with glenlivet 12. simple amazing.

estringrev 2013-08-22 14:30

Haven't really tried too much, but Buffalo Trace and Four Roses single barrel are both really good bourbons.. I've also tried a couple ryes and ended up really liking Rittenhouse 100 (still prefer the bourbons). Haven't gotten around to trying any European whiskeys yet.

The whiskey market seems to have really amazing stuff at affordable prices.. The same deal goes for Gins and aged Rums. Brandys/Cognacs have been the least reliable in my experience. I've tried a couple Cognacs at the $35-$50 mark, and they were astounding, but the stuff below that (including american brandy's) have ranged from satisfactory to unusable.

Everyone has different tastes, but I much prefer Laphroaig. Check it out some time.

Heh I used to drink the shit out of some Four Roses when I was in Japan. Prior to that, I had never even seen it on sale.

estringrev 2013-09-14 18:14

Picked up some Glenfiddich 12 yro since it was relatively cheap compared to other single malts.. It's pretty damn good if you can find it for a reasonable price ($27), but most places charge $10 more than that. I'll probably shell out for something higher-end at some point.

I doubt anyone is interested in aged rums, but I picked up my second one. Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva.. The stuff is pretty amazing for sipping at $29-$35.. Other one I've had is El Dorado 12, and I still prefer it for the less sweet and drier profile (it's also cheaper).
