    Never seen that one before. Any good?

    Worthy of its Beeradvocate rating. Full bodied stout with some delicious malts and maybe a bit of hopps, aftertaste of bitter cocao and coffee is wonderful. Definitely would buy again and would reccomend.

    You know I hijacked this from my parents since it was not being used, so that I could keep my beers cool. I always thought it was just a little fridge. Thanks to you though I looked it up and it turns out that is actually its purpose. Its a Avanti WC191BG Little Tavern Wine and Beer Cooler. I feel so dumb haha.

    Thanks, looked around for reviews on it, seems pretty good.

    Seeing the Lost Abbey beer above, I decided to open up a Lost Abbey 10 Commandments. Bit of raisins, honey, dark fruits in the taste. Very enjoyable. Also, pretty good looking label, just like most of Lost Abbey's labels.

    Tonight: Maiden's prayer. Haven't tried one before, it's a pleasant drink. I can certainly see how it acquired its reputation as a ladies drink though, it's on the sweeter side.

    Last night: Had a friend over who's fairly new to the whole drinking game, so showed him a couple of cocktails. Manhattan for him, Aurora for me (personal creation- gin, St. Germain and lime at 2:1:1), and then I just made a couple of Luigi's for a second drink. Or close enough anyway, I forgot the triple sec. Recipe only calls for a dash though, and it's not the dominant flavor. The gin, vermouth and orange carry that particular drink.

    For actually fighting a cold, best to leave both the honey and lemon in. Honey is actually one of the best cough suppressants around, and the lemon helps loosen the mucus so you get rid of it more easily.
    Took your advice last night, and riffed a hot toddy off of the Penicillin cocktail -- Orangerie, lemon juice, and ginger-honey syrup. Not bad, but my ratios need tweaking. Just decaf Earl Grey and honey tonight, though. ~ H

    That was a perfectly excellent Armagnac, the likes of which I'd love to sample. Why the merkur? ~ H

    Yeah, whenever i have a cold, I get sick of tea with honey and lemon pretty quickly, but the stuff really does help.

    Though colds do give you an excuse to drink a bee's knees. If you like 'em, anyway.

    Also, what's decaf tea? Are you referring to herbals? [​IMG]

    How about some good 'ol Dutch tap water, one of the best tap waters in the world though. Taste is sweet with a hint of calcium but not dry at all.

    Sorry, Dutch tap water got nothing on NYC tap water. Taste like aquafina with a hint of lead and shrimp

    I'm going on a solid week, still coughing up crap, but less of it now, finally. Geez, this one has sucked. I wish I could get the Bee's Knees to work for me, just never has. In theory, it should be great with Old Raj. Decaf tea? I can get a little tachycardic if I go too overboard on the caffeine, and as you correctly surmise, I've been hitting the hot tea/lemon/honey business pretty hard of late. ~ H
