Nyuk, nyuk.

Four days of -40* called for a celebration now that it has warmed up to -10*C, so we went for a 1.5h ski. Beats the rollers!

Nice workmickey-mac

Oud Bruin is my favorite of the Petrus line. We, on the other hand, are "suffering" through blue skies and temperatures in the 80s. I'm working on a post-ride Fuller's London Porter in a good old English pint glass. Contrary to popular belief, stouts and porters make excellent warm-weather drinking. I'm glad you enjoyed the Petrus and am happy to see you using the proper glassware. Next, see if you can track down any de Dolle beers. The Oerbier 2003 Reserva is expensive but worth the money if you can find the elusive little treat.

Just returned from Jamaica, favourite drink of the locals is Guinness. But, the local Dragon Stout is very interesting. Syrupy with what MUST be a bit of Molasses in the malt.

Petrus is difficult to find around here (Ontario, Canada) and I only picked up a promo pack(seasonal giftbox, for myself) to try them out. Blonde was okay(its no Leffe), the triple was very good (preferring Duvel) and the Oud Bruin a mouthful. All great beers.
Up that way,mickey-mac

I'd imagine you can lay your hands on just about everything Unibroue makes. I've tried almost all Unibroue beers with the notable exeption of La Fringante, which seems to be a limited release. Have you had a chance to try this little treasure? If so, how does it rate?
Yes, Unibroue makes great stuff...Spunout

but I have not seen La Fringante. Just the regulars Fin du Monde, Maudite, Blanche de Chambly are widely available. If not, I bike across the bridge to Quebec and look there.

Anyone who can make an apple ale taste good knows what he's doing. The head brewer at Unibroue used to work for Chimay. I think most of Unibroue's stuff is better than Chimay's these days.
Is that pronounced "Uni Brow? " Too funny. (nm)ColnagoFE
