That dog in the background is thinking "See, that's what happens when you don't drink from a proper glass".

Jay, If that isn't one of the most enticing photographs of a beer that I've ever seen then I don't know what is. I'm having a hard time not licking my computer screen.

Cheers mate! - John

Quote from: Jay on December 24, 2023, 10:09:46 PMMerry Christmas guys, bet you can guess the beer I'll be opening ⛄️


I know the answer, but I'm going to keep Silent toNight and let someone else take a guess.  :chin:

Merry Christmas to you and your family Jay.

A Merry Bruges Christmas for sure! Looks like Santa is certainly enjoying his share of good Belgian beer in that video. Hope he is still able to steer his sleigh in the right direction. "Ho Ho... Whoooops!"

Christmas Cheers! - John

Quote from: Trappist on December 07, 2023, 02:16:32 PMIt is strange that there is no single mentioning of barrel ageing.
Normally, this blend was aged for 6 months in Oak Casks ???

Well, I sure didn't taste any oak flavors here. Maybe they changed things at the brewery?

That's interesting Filip. It's been a long time since I've had this beer, probably at least 7 or 8 years or more if memory serves me correctly, and I do remember the oak flavor being very prominent back then.

It's not a style that I like much these days, which is interesting because years ago I did enjoy it very much. Then all of a sudden my tastes changed and it wasn't. Maybe it's time to go back and give that style another try, if I can find any locally.

Thanks for sharing your tasting impressions Filip.  t_u

Cheers! - John

Lovely Filip! Nice to have a place like that nearby, and yet not full of tourists.

One question though ...  :chin:   

I clicked on the link you provided to their website, and was looking at their lunch menu. Under "Daily Special" for Tuesday November 21 it lists "Tree trunk" as being the entree. What the heck is Tree trunk?  ???

Cheers! - John

Wow, what a treasure! Thanks for pointing these out Filip. I hadn't heard of this guy before. Just watched the first one (2 1/2 hours!), and it was excellent. Can't wait to watch the rest of them, preferably while enjoying some nice Belgian beer.

Cheers! - John   :animated-belgium-flag:

Any beer that compares to Dulle Teve is a winner. Here's another one from st. Canarus that I hope to find someday and try.

Cheers! - John
