Best beer I've ever had was a Belgium once called Chimay.
It was like velvet. Silky smooth, absolutely delicious taste, like ice cream beer. And not in a sickly way where you have 2 and then can't stomach it
any more. Had the distinct bitter after taste and the full bodied flavour that made me realise how beer should be.
I then migrated to a full bodied stout. Something like swan stout or coopers best stout. Swan stout was like a BBQ in your mouth, smokey flavour,
meat, sausages, and a very strong bitter after taste that made you instantly swig another mouthful to get rid of the taste.
These piss-weak (pun intended) beers that foam up and if left to stand the foam turns hard, are lolly water made for mass production to yuppies that
drink anything with a wegde of lemon stuck in the side.
If I can't get a good full bodied beer (that has texture damn it!) then I'll go get a scrumpy jack. Cider with flavour and bight.
You know I'd actually forgive myself if I had one of those belgium chimays now... they were so expensive for singles they limit themselves by the
cost. But at 9% alc/vol you only needed about 12 or so...
ahh sobriety. only when you are here do I remember the times good beer was indeed good.
