That Dolle could be the score of the century. The Oud Beersel too for that matter...

Stop reading... Seriously: you'll die of jealousy...

So I went back... Knowing there were two more cases of the Export Stout... Price: 2.19€/ bottle*.

I took one case and went to the cash register and told the lady that the beers expired feb 2017... "Oh - I'll give you a 50% discount..." So I went for the other case as well... Then she forgot to charge me for the two De Dolle Brouwers cases... Value (empty): 4.5€... So, in short: I paid 42.4€ for two crates, minus 9€ for the empty cases... Comes to 0.83€/ bottle  :D

Oh: and I also scored some big bottles of Tripel Karmeliet (exp 7/2017), Chimay Tripel (2012), and Petrus Aged pale (exp 01/2017)...

* In the attachment you can see how a crate is 40€ (so 2€/ bottle), and a separate bottle (my dad bought 4 because he wasn't paying attention) cost 2.19€...

I decided against more of the Oud Beersel geuze because well... I tried it on Sunday with my brother, and it was good, but it's not thé best geuze... So yeah it's 6.5 for a big bottle, and it's from 2012, but I still couldn't buy 'm...

However, I'm going back in July... There's a case of Dulle Teve that expires 07/2017 that has my name on it... Might pick up some Rodenbach Caractère Rouge as well... That expired somewhere in 2017, so probs a few years old as well...

You are truly a lucky bar-steward.

Thanks to the wonderfully strict laws pertaining to sale of alchohol in Norway your not even allowed to reduce the price of booze or do any kind of offer here.

Great story though.

Here's a photo dump of the weekend's beer drinking:








The Death by Coconut and the Cervisiam Porter were both a little dissapointing, otherwise, winners. The Guttorm Impy Stout is from Lindheim. These guys must be one of breweries that mean I can get snotty and thumb my nose at all you Euro/Yank types. Truly astonishing beer, unavailable outside of Norway. This was just fantastic. BA'd on I can't remember what, but power and complexity in buckets.

It was either that or a fat man drunk on bourbon was sentenced to 8 months in prison.

At the very least something with 8..

I had the pleasure of trying an old Amager - Hr. Frederiksen (https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/amager-hr-frederiksen/71568/) a couple of days ago. Vintage 2008, batch #05. They're up to around 1600 now. Was great! Way better than the current production.

A delicious nitro brew from 2nd st. Brewery in Santa Fe, NM: the Cereza Negra (with an IPA chaser)
