This thread will be the home of pictures of Comercial beers that will be of interest of most home brewers.
Probably not much point of posting pics of beers we have all seen, Swill ect.
I would like to see it be more for the out there beers that we hear about but cant always find. Local and foreign specialty brews, rare finds and anything interesting. Its great to see what some exotic local and forein beers look like.
Also add a bit of a description of the beer for others to read.
OK........... on with it.
I recently aquired a bottle of Rochefort 8 and 10. Ive been a bit scared to open them. The prospect of trying such a beer is daunting.
HAlf way through the bottle of 8 right now.
Hooooolyyyyyy Sheep Shit!
Poped the lid and took a sniff. It made the hairs on the back of mt neck stand up. I have never smelt a beer so complex, so powerful, so intense.
Poured a deep murky brown colour, your average swill drinker would take one look and say......... no thanks!
I cant stop putting my nose in the wide mouth glass and breathing deeply. If the world smelt like this it would be a better place. It smells sweet and rich, some spicy hops there, vanilla and candy. It smells like my taste buds are going to have an orgasm!
Tasted and once again...... hairs on the back of the neck! Sweet, full and satisfying. Toffee maltiness and a hint of chocolaty notes to add complexity. Hops are there too but blend so well with the malt and yeast. Sweet and spicy.
9.2% ABV but no hint of alcahol in the mouth or finnish. My head if feeling a bit fluffy and thats the only way i know its there.
WOW, what an awsome beer. Im very impressed and much more edumacated on what i should be aiming for with a belgian.
This stuff makes the Chimay from dan murpheys taste like swamp water!
Cant wait to try the 10! Maybe tomorrow night on fathers day.
