  1. I was so happy to find it. Everywhere in town was out, or so I thought. Went in for Cafe Royale, walked out with this! Cheers!

    Good club to be a member of, haha. I've only had FIS once before, on tap last year during my relative infancy stages of appreciating stouts, and I remember it being damn good. Can't wait to dive into this batch!

    Nothing special but some stuff I've wanted to try. The Rye and Rye I couldn't pass up adding another to the bunker....a really great brew.

    How much did all those MOAS set you back?
     
  13. Norms is good shit. That parking lot is a clusterf**k though. I miss that store and probably missed out on copious amounts of great beer when I lived in the area during my un-enlightened days.

    The case plus tax & shipping came to $275. That makes it $23 a bottle, which I would pay again and again for that deliciousness.

    Any tasting notes on the 3 fonteinen vintage 2002?

    I had the pleasure of drinking 3 fonteinen vintage 2003 many times and I loved it, I can't imagine what the 2002 taste like. :)

    Beer Store - Is that actually the name of it? This was in Seabrook (I was visiting friends in Newburyport, MA for NYE).

    LambicKing Advocate (655) Florida Apr 13, 2011

    Sure is...saw most of the same beers in Nashua last week.
     
  33. We had both the 2002 and the 2003 Vintages tonight. I too have had the 2003 many times, but have never had the 2002. Among 50th Anniversary, 1999 and Millennium, I'd take the 2002. 2002 is perfectly balanced and very drinkable but also complex. I've got one left, we should get together sometime soon. Can't promise the other one I have is going to last long though. :)
