Mrs got given this today.
What is the optimal aging period for urine?
I discovered this new gin earlier in the year. Best I've ever had. Simply outstanding.
Am enjoying these 2 mixed together at the moment.
A Kwaremont Belgian beer … brewed for leaders
Named after the well-known and notorious bicycle escarpment of the Kwaremont in Flanders … with an average gradient of 6,6 % (like the alcohol percentage of the beer) …but much heavier because of the cobbles ... I did this one earlier this year on my racingbike
Damned cobbles … but the beer is excellent!
Living in Connecticut, one of my favorite seasonal beers is Thomas Hooker's Chocolate Truffle Stout made with chocolate from a local chocolatier Munson's Chocolates. They also make a great Blonde beer. I always say that there is nothing like a Blonde Hooker!
I thought the Dutch liked nothing from Belgium!
The description is Blue Nun or Black Tower to a T.
Canuck - I know ... but actually Belgium was part of Holland ... this is how Holland looked like after the French (Napoleon) left ca. 1815. Actually, the battle of Waterloo sort of was fought on Dutch soil! See: Battle of Waterloo - Wikipedia
That's why the Belgians still have some positive sides left .
Having a few nips of this lately
Dave, I see you're taking your time and still not upgraded.
Yep. Liquor bottles last a lot longer for me these days. Don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing.
For me its bottled Old Speckled Hen (5% by vol) or another Greene King beer, their bottled IPA (3.6%). I prefer low(ish) alcohol beers, and I don't like hoppy beers.
But its my wife I'm worried about. She has recently developed a taste for Feckin Unbelievable Irish Gin!
It is unlikely that my Norton got as close to the coast in 1940 as the Mont des Cats. 44th Division were there though. This 'Trappist' beer is an oddity as they have not brewed in the abbey since '14-'18 as the Hun stole all the brewing equipment. It's actually brewed for them in Scourmont (Chimay) so it's a Belgian / French hybrid. First bike and beer picture of the spring
I had numerous wonderful ciders in the U.K. last year. Tragically, none of them are available in Canada.
I'm still drinking Bowmore 12 year old, as I am too cheap to spend more. I like to think that it's a pretty good drink if that's all you're prepared to pay.
Is that meant to be an inspirational poster?
Forgive me for drifting off-topic, but seeing the picture of your bike, transported me back to the late 1950s, when dad had a 500cc Norton. I was always fascinated by the 3 "extra" controls on the handle-bars.
There was a small one that he held in to reduce the compression while kick-starting it. If released too early during the kick, the bike would try to throw dad over the handle bars.
I think another was for manual timing advance & retard. So what did the 3rd one do?
I've also just remembered that dad always wore a huge coat with a thick belt when riding the bike. I now wonder if this was his army issue greatcoat.
Enjoying this ale from a local brewery at the moment very nice.
