Went through at St. Bernardus sampler (Pater 6, Prior 8, Tripel and Abt 12). Enjoyed them all, but have a soft spot for tripels and quads.

Lousy pic, but great Dutch pilsner, from Gulpener brewery which grows its own hops (Mercur and Hallertauer Traditione)

Excuse the large post. I haven't posted for s while and here are some highlights.

 

Gnadige Frau - Very smooth and sweet Imperial Stout. Had high hopes for this one and it didn't fall short.

 

 

Deliverance - Possibly the best beer I have ever tried - consistently excellent and after a year in the bottle rivals BCBS for the title.

 

 

Stille Nacht 2014 - As always an excellent way to spend Christmas Eve

 

 

Santo Ron Diego - Disappointing considering the brewery and the price point. Consistently my favourite brewery but this fell short. Boozy and hot - maybe a few years in the bottle would be beneficial?

 

 

Gift of the Magi - Excellent Christmas beer and one I shall try and hunt down for the next festive season.

 

 

Cocoa Shake - Pretty decent. Not overly chocolatey and quite well balanced.

Most have posted in the thread for the exchange. I'm on my phone and can't figure out how to link to it

Sherry BA Bommen & Granaten. Less sweetness, but less balance.

Also, had several Societe Bachelors (mandarin?) last night. They were absolutely phenomenal. The nose was one of the best IPAs I've ever inhaled.

I'm not normally a big Christmas ale fan, but damn, the St. Bernardus variant is good.
