That's what was posted; I'm too Family Day'ed out to look for the original quote though. :D

While I enjoyed it, I thought it had a thin mouth-feel. Can't see it aging well, but would be happy to be wrong (and have someone else put the point to me with a glass).

Out of curiosity, what would you consider proper age for a Samichlaus? I've a few with a couple years on 'em now.

That would be Irish. When it comes to Scotch, I've found Abelour to be well rec'd, and their A'Bunadh is a nice cask-strength whisky.

Ha ha....had been told yesterday by someone working the floor that there would only be 10 bricks, and so didn't hang around early this morning when I dropped by to find 10 ppl ahead of me.

I'd be pissed off if I weren't so sleep deprived. :D

Any time I mention Aesop's fables, I get blank looks. Nice to see a reference to my favourite of his tales.

Polishing off my (last?) bottle of '02 Fringante. As to be expected, next to no carbonation when compared to a new Unibroue ale, but there's no mistaking whose yeast is at work here. Had I known it was there, I would have been wise to open it a couple of years ago. Still packs quite the punch, but t...

In the whole "hiya, I'm too into my second '04 Old Crusty (not to mention the yummy rums)", could someone please be so kind as to post links. I'll be too into the turkey stuffing tomorrow to pull 'em up on my own. ;)

The last time Skull Splitter came through ('97?), it sold way too quickly for my liking (translation: never got any), and I recall the LCBO rep claiming it was youngsters (?) buying it based upon the name. Never thought I'd have a second chance at it in this province. Glad to be wrong.

Slowly thinning out the cellar some. Having a Old Crusty from '04, and later in the day will polish off my last of the '06 Liefmans Goudenband. Would happily stock up on both again.
