thank you.
Smithwicks. It's a dark beer in color, but extremely smooth and light in flavor and texture, it's sort of weird. But any self-respecting irish pub should carry it, and it's available in stores here in NYC, not sure how common it is elsewhere. But it's better from tap anyway, more than the bottles.

Then you know you picked the wrong one

I'd say, if you're not used to beer snobbery, start with something like Stella and go from there.

Why the FUCK does that shit cost so much? Honestly, fuck elitist Belgian beers. Chimay is the most overrated beer in the history of mankind.

Stella is highly overrated.

Pilsner Urquell is a much tastier alternative.

No way dude. Smithwick's is heavy. It's coffee-ish, malty-ish, and personally I hate it.

I'd stay away from that one cbot.

Hmmm....FALSE.


Just tried both of them back to back recently. Stella wins. For whatever reason, contrary to my past experiences, this bottle of Stella had not a hint of skunk. So I'm sure that was a factor.

It's easily the lightest textured dark beer I've had. I agree it's coffee-ish and malty-ish taste-wise but it's very light bodied. I think it's one of the easiest-to-drink beers I've had that actually has a taste to it.

Magic Hat #9, okay, well apparently I've had it. I have the bottle for it. If I remember right, this was a giant "Wait...I don't really even like this, let alone consider it good".

I don't know what all the hub-bub is about. I'll have to give it another try.

What did you think of the Chocolate Stout? I got one from a friend who stole it from his frat's formal but I didn't really care for it. Though I think it might have skunked because I've really only heard good things about it otherwise.

My favorites are Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Guinness, and Sam Adams Boston Lager.

Pretty bad that I'm only 19 and already a beer snob to some degree (most of my friends don't understand my affinity for Sierra Nevada). Unfortunately all I have right now in my fridge is some Natty Lights. I'm gonna be fuckin' broke when I turn 21 and can buy the good stuff myself.

I love it. Had it for the first time last year at a beer fest where I tried close to 30 different beers and it was the one beer that really stood out at the end of the night. Got a case of it a few weeks ago and have been enjoying it on the weekends

I am drinking an Winter Solstice right now, and pulled out a Brooklyn Black Chocolate stout for later. Mad Elf is great too, I look forward to that every winter.

Fuller's ESB and Fuller's London Pride are excellent beers. Overall I was always in favor of stouts.

They can go to hell. I'll take my reasonably priced Dogfish Head and like it.

The Westvleteren Brewery (Brouwerij Westvleteren) is a BelgianbreweryTrappist Abbey of Saint Sixtus of Westvleteren in the Belgian municipality of Westvleteren

Currently, the beer is priced at €25.00 (Blonde), €30 (8°) and €36.00 (12°) per 24-bottle crate (excluding bottle/crate deposit). Glasses specifically designed to drink the beer can be purchased at the abbey in packs of 6 for 16 euro.
Buyers were originally limited to ten 24-bottle crates of the beer per car, but as the beer increased in popularity, this was first reduced to five, then to two. When making an order now, the type and quantity of beer for sale are revealed. Sales are limited to one order a month per person per license plate and phone number. Also, the beer must be reserved on their "beerphone" (+32 (0)70 21 00 45) beforehand. The monks will never sell you any beer if you just drive up to the abbey hoping to get some. The reason for this is to eliminate commercial reselling, and hence give all visitors a chance to buy some.
The current production is 4750 hl per year, and this is not expected to be increased.
Aside from the brewery itself, the only other official sale point for the beer is the abbey-owned In de Vrede, a cafe and visitor's centre opposite the abbey. All beers can be bought there for immediate consumption or take-away, depending on availability (however, prices are higher than at the abbey). Often there is no beer available at the shop. The shop also sells cheeses made at the abbey, yeast tabs (not yeast to make beer but dead yeast for health) and other Trappist products.
Buyers of the beer receive a receipt with Niet verder verkopen ("Do not resell") printed on it. The abbey is very much against resale of their beer, and it is their wish that the beer is only commercially available at the two official sale points. To this end, any Westvleteren beer which is sold anywhere else in the world is grey market beer, as no wholesalers or pubs are supplied with the beer, and the abbey is actively working to eliminate the illicit sales.

A four-pack of Palo Santo Marron costs $15.00. Not really reasonably priced, but it is a great freaking beer.

Usually go with

Keystone... about all the time. But lately have been getting sick of it, so we switched to Busch. Bud Light is like a delicacy to me.
