    That's a pretty damn good answer really. Maybe Rochefort 8/10 deserves a spot. Same could be said for some Kiwi stuff but that is a good list.

    "Best" here means what I always buy: a combination of what I like and always feel like drinking; what I get something from I don't get from other things; and value.

    That's totally cool and get that. Hence why I split Nogne and Odin's Tipple. For the money and my palate just a great buy.

    Best is a relative term. Not looking for rankings, or close to that. Learn more about people's palate's in this way
