Stille Nacht 2010

We were inspired by @Ira Schwartz’s post to pull one of these out. Cap reads 2010. Immediate hiss and scent of burnt caramel. Carbonation is à point. Palate is fresh—figs, brown sugar, honey, dry finish. A great winter warmer. Fun to age these. — 4 months ago

Reserva Special Oerbier 2017

I am not a serious beer drinker, usually at the ball park or a barbecue. Curiosity gets the best of me and like wine I enjoy seeing what’s out there. Holy s#%t! This was insane. A very murky reddish brown liquid and a cream colored foam filled my glass. Yes that is a wine glass. Intense Port like aromas of dry figs and chestnuts along with cherries(?). Powerful flavors of toffee, coffee , chocolate and balsamic vinegar. Spot on balance of sweet and sour. I always thought Duchesse de Bourgogne was the most vinous beer I have ever tasted until now. Perhaps most amazingly the 13% alcohol was no where to be found. I realize others on Delectable have had beer like this but for me it was an epiphany. A totally polarizing beverage . I will definitely try other vintages to see what age creates. — 4 months ago
