    I had a Block House Double Chocolate bock the other day....it was awesome. Smelled and tasted like a box of chocolates. Certainly understand if it's not someone's thing but I'm a chocoholic so...

    Oh, I'm not sure about Sam Adams. I was referring to Harpoon. I haven't been to Sam Adams, but I do recall missing out on a Harpoon tour. It may be first come first serve, but that may fill up fast. I just remember missing out on getting the tour, but we were on limited time so it could have been because we couldn't wait long enough. We did have enough time to order and enjoy a flight and a pint. So just something to consider/look into before you go.

    Totally random recommendation, but the girl and I had Bahn mi and Ti when we were stateside last month and it is actually one of the best bahn mis either of us had ever eaten. (And Prague and Taiwan are both FULL of great Vietnamese places.)

    I shall.make sure that I have the time. I plan to go early as I know the Harpoon is not far from where I am staying, well, 30 minute walk along the waterfront but if it is a nice day I'll get some exercise :laugh:

    Had a glass of Louis XIII Cognac last week. $3k/bottle. Blend of eaux-de-vie ranging from 40 to over 100 years old.

    [​IMG]

    More astringent than I was expecting, as I anticipated something velvety smooth. Rich, complex and fruity, abundant candied dates on the nose. It's a nice cognac, but there others out there that are just as good. My expectations were sky high for this.

    Clearly a status purchase, I was disappointed as it just didn't do much for me. I feel the high cost has more to do with the price of having artists make the crystal bottles individually by hand and the cost of housing barrels for over 100 years. It's one of those things people claim is incredible because they want to justify the money they dropped on it, or like I said, a status purchase as they want those that can't afford it to think it is the holy grail.

    holy moly you better be ready before you drink this monster, 10% goes down smooth and is not quite like any russian imperial's i've had. coffee and molasses with a raisins and dates subtle finish which makes the finish smoooth...

    Had 1oz left in this bottle of Eagle Rare, so I thought I would try it in this pint of Imperial Biscotti Break. That beer is already 11.2%. This should be interesting.

    Oh good god, it's beyond delicious.

    Picked up a new beer from Dogfish Head, Dragons & YumYums. It's a pale ale with dragonfruit, yumberry, passion fruit, pear, and black carrot juices. Not bad, pretty interesting.

    I'm gonna be drinking cheap beer tomorrow in order to properly celebrate Wilson's cheap shot on Dumo.

    Walked into Market District today to see that Cigar City Brewing is now distributing to PA. The guy at the checkout was telling me the first shipment just came in.
