    Heineken is cheering Les États-Unis or the United States in proper English. Such a crappy, flavorless beer and that’s all I had in the fridge this late morning. Starting this thread with this is rarely seen, but who dare wins?

    Cheers advocates and may your day be filled with far more exciting brews!

    Have a good Wednesday. Been playing Warframe for 3 hours. Really amazing game for being free. Good amounts of gameplay mechanics going on. You can collect minerals, credits, and items to forge new weapons and other tools. Just beat the first boss, which was rather easy. I just shot him in the head for two minutes. He recharged his shield a few times while sending decoy soldiers at me. Also downloaded a few other free Steam games(Destiny 2 and Dota 2), and a VR version of Payday 2 which I want to try to see if the controls are better. Probably going to have to slow down on getting new games so I don’t hit my bandwidth cap this month.

    Nightmare Crucifixion - Third Servile War. Excellent DIPA. LAsting rocky head retention/thick foamy lacing the whole glass. Aromas and flavors of big mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, red apple, mango, honeydew melon, passion fruit, blueberry, gooseberry, mint, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine hops; with moderate wheat, biscuit dough, light honey/toasted malts; and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Mild pine, herbal, floral, woody, minty, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; very creamy/bready/grainy malts, some sticky hops, and light resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness; no hop astringency. Very smooth/soft, mild increasing warmth of 10.6%, with minimal lingering hop burn after the finish. Awesome Calypso, Vic Secret, Simcoe profile. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hops with a large sized wheat/oat/malt backbone. Light residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. No complaints as expected of the brewery. They rarely miss. 4.03

    Bonjour, bonjour! I certainly didn’t want to sound like a dink (proper Vermont slang) but since it’s still an American based forum, the Queen’s English applies here. :wink:

    Your French is indeed excellent, always cool to read your guys knowledge on different tongues, movies music and life. Cheers!

    Good morning BAs! The Queen's English - never! Amer-English maybe. We do, however, have a few Brit members that can put us in our grammatic and syntactic place. Anyway, it's yet another damp and chilly morning here in NW PA - no diagnosed COVID-19 infections in the county thus far so I guess it's OK to keep breathing for another day. Today's New Breakfast Beer:

    Really not very good, but it's been resting on a room-temperature shelf for almost a year.

    HOMES Raspberry Lime Sherbet. Amazing Milkshake sour. Opaque ruby red/pink color; great rocky head retention/spotty lacing. Aromas and flavors of huge juicy/tart/tangy raspberries, fruit jam/skin/seed, lime, lemon, citrus zest, peach, pear, green apple, red grape/wine, hay, straw, and grass; with moderate wheat, cracker, cream, white bread dough, light biscuit/toast malts; light lacto funk/pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruty/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang, and light spiciness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body; and fairly crisp finishing. Balanced creamy/grany malts, lactic acid, and fruit tang/tannins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing acidic/tangy dryness; minimal puckering sourness. Refreshing, not overly lactic, zero warming 5.5%. Amazing balance of super jammy raspberries, lime zest, and lacto complexity; with a nice lactose and wheat/malt backbone against acidity. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp dryness. One of the best ones in the series. 4.32

    My youngest brother (drinker of Coors Light and the sort) hearing of my upcoming retirement bought me this gift. I couldn't bring myself to tell him that I have several bottles of each of these and that the extra cost of this vertical isn't worth the fancy box. We drank the 19 together that day. Now that I am officially retired I decided that I'd drink the 18 today.

    It's a cold gloomy day and I probably won't be leaving the house again, so I might as well drink something strong. Might take a nap after this, though...

    Already known of them for a long time lol. I discovered them right after they released their debut album in 2013. I've turned quite a few people onto them since then, I know @Greywulfken is one of them on here. But yea Mastodon/Opeth is the right mix/description. Cheers

    About to open up some Destiny 2. I played Payday 2 VR earlier, and it was a lot more enjoyable for me than keyboard/mouse, but have to get more fluid with the moving controls.

    The Bruery Vermont Sticky Maple. Amazing as usual. Aromas and flavors of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, maple syrup, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, wood, roasted nuts, and dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of coconut, butterscotch, licorice, molasses, raisin, prune, cherry, fig, date, smoke, and yeast earthiness. Very minimal bitterness or bourbon/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Light-medium carbonation and super full body; very creamy/silky/velvety malts and some slickness in the mouthfeel. Minimal sticky hops, chalky roast, or oak tannins. Slightly increasing lingering bitter/spicy dryness; no cloying sweetness. Dangerously smooth/soft sipping; mild increasing warmth of 11.3%, no lingering barrel booze. Perfectly balanced super rich malts, and maple syrup; with solid bourbon barrel presence/integration. Light fruity yeast and earthy hops. Not overly sweet/heavy from lingering dryness. I think this is what Black Tuesday should be. Super rich without the damn booze fest from the ABV/Barrels. Better than any weekday variant I've reviewed previously.

    There is new TBDM singles now! Sounds pretty good. Will look forward to the full LP.

    I'm having a Devil's Reach from Cape May Brewing. A Belgian style ale is how they advertise it. It has some characteristics of a Belgian strong golden ale and a little bit of tripel in there, too. It's just a damn good beer and is in regular rotation at my house.

    Cheers.

    Well, another gloomy day in paradise. Did an IPA from Commonwealth on NBS that didn’t do much for me. I got the GF one of those while I grabbed this, which she wouldn’t like:
    [​IMG]

    A Grodziskie style ale - low ABV smoked wheat called Puff. I like it, I get the wheat and a decent “puff” of smoke. Light in feel (and color, way more light straw than photo shows) with a nice bite from carbonation.

    Another decent off-style by Commonwealth.

    Post Image says it is down for maintenance, so I’m using my old Imgur account and try to link with my iPhone 8...let’s see what we get...ok, so the pic is here, but you have to click on the link to see it...any suggestions on how I can post photo so it shows with out the extra step of clicking on the link? Cheers!
