Naw, trust me. You want a nice Calvados warmed up in a snifter while relaxing by the fireside.

Picked up some more St. Bernardus as well as a couple 4 packs of Delirium Noel and a 12 pack of the locally famed Summit Winter Ale which was on sale for $9.99.

Also deployed an auxiliary refrigerator unit in the kitchen sector to handle storage of the holiday beverage stockpiles. If you call yourself a drunk, you should probably have an extra fridge dedicated exclusivelt to your craft.

Excellent choices Mr. Badfellow. Cold weather in Wisconsin allows for the garage to become a pseudo refrigerator as well. I've got my stockpile within easy reach on the steps.

I got ahold of some Cigar City Brewing Maduro Brown Ale last night - it doesn't pack a big punch due to a lower ABV but is still a nice full flavored beer. I also decided to splurge and bought the Surly Darkness to drink on Thanksgiving - it will help me deal with the family......will report back on whether it was worth the high price per bottle.

Robinson's Old Tom. I always try to buy some at christmas, to leave at my parents' house for the next year. It ages well and it's nice to do a back to back of aged versus new

Cognac.
Over armagnac? Also cheers and welcome back mon amie.
Well, the thing is, Armagnac is an all seasons thing to me while Cognac feels Inexplicably wintery. I don't know why.
Thank you for your nice words.
