ooooh i forgot about this one. i usually dont go for the high alcohol percentage beers because theyre usually too sweet for me, and i cant stand sweet alcohol (or sweet things in general). but this one is actually quite nice. first time i discovered it was at a beer festival, it got me very very drunk...

That's the single most important thing about alcohol. Kingsley Amis in one of his early novels imagined a brewery whose slogan was "Makes you drunk."

Or, as Homer Simpson once said, "the cause of, and solution to, all the world's problems".

actually, i strongly disagree.

getting drunk as an end in itself is valid imo. parties or whatever are like that for me, you go with the intention of getting drunk. but i enjoy beer and whiskey, and i usually drink just because i like it. or, when i go out with friends, drinking is just the "background activity" because the reason for going out is the socializing. 

having a beer while watching a movie, or a glass of whiskey at the end of the day doesnt get you drunk. im not saying anything against getting drunk mind you, i do that several times a month. what im saying is that its not "the single most important thing". not to me atleast.

It isn't really sweet, but it's probably the best ale I've ever had, it's quite pricey though. The Chimay Grande Reserve is very sweet in comparison. I personally like both sweet and non-sweet alcohols. You have to be careful with the 10 percenters, especially one that good and smooth. I've gotten quite drunk off the ale myself.

i never drink ale, as ive said, i havent got much of a sweet tooth, and sweet alcohol is one of the things i hate the most. like figeling (or however it is you spell it)... but yea, those "ten percenters" as you called them are dangerous, on the rare occasions where i had them i ended up getting really drunk. i think its because ones used to a certain amount of beer that one knows one can drink easily, so one kinda plans his drinking around that amount, but this beer is 2-3 times stronger than regular beer, and you end up ****faced...

You know what's really dangerous? 70-proof Kahlua. It's so smooth you can drink it like a soft drink, but it doesn't take much to seriously mess you up.

 

Of course, I obviously do like sweet alcohol; I actually strongly dislike bitter alcohol. But if I am going to drink beer or ale, it'll be one of these:

Black Label was posted a few posts back so either it is popular or the Gods of drinking created a profound coincidence.

I'm no master when it comes to drinking booze, but I enjoy beers that we have here like Fat Yak Pale Ale, Bluetounge Lager, Hawthorn Lager, James Squire Pale Ale and Kronenburg.

Ah, dangerous drinks! I once bought some Navy-strength gin, then, not thinking, mixed my gin & tonics with the same proportions as I would with normal gin.

 

Oh dear...

Didn't like this one. Too much taste of alcohol.

At a friend's house the other night, we did some damage to the contents of a bottle of non-chill filtered Ardbeg. Lovely!

Chimay and St Bernadus both make great Trappist Ale. There are more than 200 Belgian monastaries world wide with each monastery producing their own food and drink and selling some of it to sustain themselves. Out of the more than 200 monastaries only eight of them currently brew and sell beer to sustain themselves. Chimay and St Bernadus are two of those eight, the other six are Westveleteren, Westmalle, Orval, Rochefort, La Trappe, and Achel. Only beer brewed from those eight monastaries can legally label their beer as "Trappist Ale". St Bernadus 12 is regarded by many as one of the best beers in the world constantly ranks 99 or 100 out of 100 points. This is no surprise because the Belgian monks that brew St Bernadus 12 used to brew Westveleteren 12 (commonly referred to as Westy 12) for the monks of St Sixtus Abbey before they started brewing it themselves. Westy 12 is also regarded by many as the best beer in the world and also consistently ranks 99 or 100 out of 100 points. Westy 12 is also very difficult to obtain as the monks of St Sixtus Abbey only sells the beer from their monastery and a small pub nearby in limited quantities. They don't brew much Westy 6, 8, or 12 so reserve orders for them sells out quickly. I've tried both St Bernadus 12 and Westy 12 and like both as they are very good beers. I currently have a few bottles of Westveleteren 6, 8, & 12 cellared away, treat them bottles almost as if they were gold.
