I just tried J. W. Dundee's Porter for the first time. It's a lot like a Saranac Black Forest, really pleasant but nothing mind-blowing, and a little watery, but there's just something so... drinkable about it. I downed the bottle like I was just offered water in the desert and it gives a great kick. I'd pull out another but I'm hoping to make it to the gym some time. Right now I'm saying great for a grocery store beer.

I'm curious what people mean when they say this. I see it on blurbs for wine all the time. And of course, being a smart-ass, my first thought is, "Well I should hope it is!" But what exactly is it meant to convey -- that it's smooth, or goes down easy...?

Yeah, I know what you mean ("Oh, you mean it doesn't scar my throat on the way down? I'm in.") I just mean that, yeah, it goes down easy, I guess. Like, there are some darks I enjoy but that I would take a little more time with because they're heavy or strong otherwise. This one I can drink like it's water. Now that you mention it, I'm not sure exactly what serious beer or wine snobs mean by the term either but I assumed that was more or less what it meant.

i read 'drinkable' as 'more-ish'

i recently had some young's double chocolate stout and it was really damn nice.

i was less impressed with 'belgian passions comics & beer' beer.

Like, you feel like drinking more after you finish? That's sort of what I meant too.

xpost Yes, Young's 2xchoc stout is a thing of beauty! I mentioned it on the ILX thread. I'm seriously considering ordering it online.

Good old Young's.

I'm currently a big fan of Charlie's Angel which every pub seems to have on as a guest round here at the moment.

'drinkable' = 'if i start drinking it, i will get drunk before i will run out of beer-drinknig stamina' imo.

you can order beer online? i imagine there would be a lot of red tape around shipping alcohol... but i guess people do absynthe online lal the time, huh?

hi dere, i am will and i like unibroue sometimes

beer tasting last night at Hopleaf:

St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition
Saison Dupont
Allagash White
Chimay White Label
Sierra Nevada Barleywine

it was for a charity event where not everyone was a beer drinker, so it seemed organized as an evolutionary-overview of brewing. pretty fun though, and I had never had Fond Tradition before.
