    I would definitely prefer to sip a dark ale for an hour rather than down 3 lagers in that same time. Unless I'm eating something spicy like buffalo wings I don't really want to drink my beer that fast anyway. Strong Liquor (all types) > Weak booze any day and every day. :banana:

    Well you can't really down strong ale quickly.

    Thanks, have to say that I did truly enjoy drinking it. What an awesome beer. I can see my taste evolving, about a year ago that would have something I dont think I would have drank whole bottle (from glass ofc). I dont know how to put this in Eglish but it's so "dark and has damn rich flavour", something I did not really like like a year ago.

    Just added a bottle of Chivas Regal 12YO to my collection, it's dirt cheap in supermarkets atm so I thought why not, I needed a session whisky so this will do. God I have too much booze already and I'm pretty sure I'll get at least 3 bottles of spirit/liquor on xmas day :/

    So I take it everyone's started digging into their supplies by now? I'm currently drinking a bottle of Haandbryggeriet Bestefar, and the complexity of this beer is simply mind blowing! :D

    Happy drinking holidays everyone!

    Happy and responsible drinking holidays to everyone. :)

    I will have this tomorrow at the evening:

    Should be good. I dont have that much of a stock of beer at parents house, that is my only bottle what is left (of something which is worth mentioning), then some strong stuff, one bottle of rum, wisky, vodka and absinthe... I'll have more good beer when I get to my flat.

    Does absinthe really give you hallucination. Never tried the drink my self.

    That looks great!

    My brother and I have about 80 bottles of strong ales (7%+) combined in my parents cellar for the holidays. Good times. :D
