    Had the Nogne-O last night, 14%, huge dark malts. Very complex and slept very well. :tongue:

    Not sure I'd drink it again, but for Stout lovers, must be epic :thumbup:

    I loved that beer (Dragonwort by the looks of the label). Huge stout fan too so that might help!

    Yeah it was the Dragonwort, it was great, massive beer (14%!)! From the label -

    "Can you fill these empty barrels with something fun?" That was the challenge Kjetil presented me with over a coffee a stormy Tuesday morning in October."How about something strong and dark?" I wondered. "25% dark malts, 30% rye, 28 degres Plato."That’ll never work." said Kjetil. 1 kilo malts/L, 48 hours of brewing and 2 years on old Armanac barrels later, I feel free to say: "Well, wouldn’t you know... it worked".
    Edvard Hortemo, brewer

    edit - As I said previously, I was in bed not long after finishing it! Which I don't get very often with huge beers. This really has port/cognac type flavours! A must for Stout lovers for sure! (y)

    A big day packing deserves a big cold taste. And that big cold taste is complex and a little unrefined. Perfect!

    Clout Stout, packs a punch. Sensational drop this year. :thumbup:

    They've nailed it. Such a great beer.

    I've never had a bad Garage Project beer, they are unstoppable.

    Agree!

    Had the Texas Tea last night, brilliant...

    Taking all my beer glasses out of the fridge though, winter beers really do need to warm up a bit for the full flavour to come out.

    Fun Fact: The term 'Radler' is a trademark of Monteith's in NZ so can't be used to describe a beer that way there (trademarked quietly in 2001).

    Although for some reason people assume fruit/citrus is added when it was actually beer and lemonade traditionally in Radlermass. Essentially a traditional radler is what we'd call a shandy.

    I enjoy the occasional craft beer, but mainly i'm just a dirty old Tooheys Old or Boags Red (best thing about being a taswegian) drinker.

    In saying that, visited my local craft beer bottleo and picked up a six pack of randoms the other day, one being the istout:

    Was epically awesome :thumbup::thumbup:

    Recently returned from Belgium with this. I've tried their other two varieties as well, not a massive fan of the blonde simply because I don't like that style of beer so much.

    Why the 8 over the 12?

    They didn't have 12 for sale that day, only 8 and blonde. That said, quite a few of the Belgians that I was at the abbey with prefer the 8 to the 12.

    It's awesome isn't it.... And it's so readily available.

    In Cali, you can get those packs at Pharmacy's, Servos etc etc....

    I like a stout and especially a milk stout but rarely have one, then I found this . . .

    Starts off with an unusual aroma but the taste makes me want to chew it.

    Very delicious.

    /invariance\ - what did you think of the oculto? I thought it was pretty sickly sweet for my tastes. I love tequila but this didn't do it for me at all. Tasted like one of those barefoot radler beers, which I dislike.
