What's the best beer you ever tasted?

Post by Oggar »

I had this beer once called Skullspliter Ale, it was a great carmel malt ale brewed in the Orkney Isles. Soooo good but almost impossible to find.

On the whole though I think my favorite brewery might be the Left Hand.

Ooh, that's a real toughie...I've had about 300 different beers in my time...and Skull Splitter is damn good, there's a store near me that sells the stuff.

But if I had to pick for a best overall beer - sorry Guinness, but it goes to Young's Luxury Double Chocolate Stout. It's the smoothest, creamiest beer I've ever seen. Incredible. And yes, it does taste like chocolate.

Never had skullsplitter, gotta find it. Youngs is ok, a bit to filling though. I could live on Chimay, that shit always hits the spot.

I HONESTLY, really do love hamms and blatz. But the best is what I call fat drunk monk - I think Fransenkanner or something. The one with the monk and the gold label. Hmmmmmm.

Guiness would be #1 for me, it's all I'd drink if it didn't cost so much. I'm going to have to represent Canada for my #2 pick, Sleeman's Honey Brown.

Cheers to the Sleeman, ts'what I'm drinking right now. Best beer I've ever had though is Belle Vue Kriek from Belgium. Fin du Monde from Quebec is also nice.

A fresh Beemish served to me in Ireland at a tiny pub near the wharf.

Anderson Valley's "Poleko Gold" is a medium to high hopped pale ale (somewhere short of an IPA, but in that direction). What a beer, hops and malt are balanced beautifully. This beer is rich and full bodied without being heavy. Poleko Gold embodies what it means to be a craft beer; Poleko Gold is a beer brewer's beer. When Anderson Valley was still relatively small Poleko Gold was unfiltered. I could buy bottles of Poleko Gold at the local grocery store which had yeast sediment at the bottom of the bottle!

I love me some Bodingtons but my buddy Gopher brews a stout which has yet to be named that is utterly fantastic. Good full flavour with a sweet, slightly chocolaty/coffee finish about fourty five seconds after the pull. Really good shit. I can't believe numbers one and three are home brews (he has a california ale that's number 3).

home brew

Post by jake2332 »

Cheers to all fine home breweries. The best commercial I've had, has to go to Black Chocolate Stout from Brooklyn. I hear there's some fine micro brews on the north-west coast, but for the east and what I know this is it.
