I'm finishing up my Nut Brown Ale.

I think I will need to search for another favorite beer - as this isn't it anymore.

HOWEVER - I still am a HUGE FAN of Brooklyn Brown Ale by Brooklyn Breweries. I need to take a tour of that place.

I do like some porters. And I like a few stouts.

Sam Adam's Honey Porter is delicious. Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout is yum.

Where do you live? Might help in suggesting things that are commonly distributed in your area.

not really, you can google for distributors or wholesaler's in your area, sometimes they have links to breweries they distribute

Go to a store that sells craft beer and note what they have.

So I finally decided to try La Fin Du Monde again. I had tried it 2 years ago and didn't like it all, and girlfriend had same experience when she tried it a while back so I ordered it at lunchkfast today and we both agreed that it was amazingly delicious. I guess it deserves all the high ratings it gets. It reminds me of Delirium Tremens but with an additional subtle spicy background.

I guess tastes for beer really do evolve significantly because we both had thought it was extremely disgusting when we first tried it separately.

Remember when Barney and Homer took a tour of the duff brewery? Do think there's a way to make gummy beer?

Finally tried a Trappist Rochefort 10:



Delicious and I like it a bit better than St. Bernardus Abt 12. The Bernardus seems to have bit more unpleasant bitterness, but that could just be the way the sediment pours.

if you dont like the sediment then dont pour it in? i never pour the sediment on any belgian. unfilitered wheats... sure, but the sediment only makes a belgian taste like ****, so maybe that was your problem with the first la fin du monde.

I tried the Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout. I'm obviously not a beer connoisseur because the "beer" taste was the most present for me and I really hard a hard time differentiating it from another beer.

At least there wasn't enough difference for me to say "hot damn that's some good beer".

The last beer I remember drinking where there was a significant taste difference was Fat Tire and I liked it.

Any recommendations for flavored beer where the flavor theme is really strong and doesn't taste much like actual beer? Like fruity or oatmeal or chocolate. I'll try anything if it sounds good, but if it's just beer with a hint of whatever flavor...I usually don't like it.

Yeah I usually just pour a small part of the bottle, drink that, and then continue to add it bit by bit so the sediment goes mostly towards the later pours.

I think the Rochefort just has less of it. It seemed a lot clearer.

What do you mean by beer taste? Hop flavor? Bitterness?

Most fruit beers will taste like carbonated jolly ranchers so you might like that.

the best way to "understand" the flavor, aroma, and taste of a beer is to simply trial and error it. find a beer everyone says, "wow, too hoppy for me," and taste that. trying to explain hops to someone who is familiar with budweiser and the like is like explaining mozart to a deaf person.

edit: go to a brewhouse and ask for a sampler, usually five or six 2-ounce samples per region / flavor.
