@neph93  I didn’t think you would actually do this! I’m sure you would have nothing to worry about if it was put to the vote.

It's dangerous to underestimate the perverse sense of humor around here...

If it's not at least slightly perverse, is it really a sense of humour?

I think it's not so much the sense of humour I underestimated, but how much everyone here is wiling to indulge each other (one of the things I love about this place).

So I promised y'all a top 5 of some kinds... I had so many incredible beer ths year... I watched y'all post some incredible looking beers every god-dang day  :D I love this thread so much... Now: I will post a top 5 or top 10 maybe later on... It's only Nov 19 after all... But the beer that wins this year well... It has to be DE DOLLE DULLE TEVE RISERVA 2018. Not because it was limited to 250 (and instantly became a bit of a whale for some 'mericans); not because my mate scored the LAST BOTTLE in the damn shop; not because it was the beer I enjoyed most this year (I'll be honest with you: I'm not thàt big on sours), but because I have a huge soft spot for DDB... Absolutely anti-commercial, and also one of the first breweries who started barrel aging beers... STILLE NACHT RESERVA being of course their most known beer... Have two in a fridge somewhere... Perks of living in Belgium I guess  ;D

One of the last things I did with my dad before he died of pancreatic cancer, was visit De Dolle... I commented on their hugely cute silkscreened metal tables they had set up outside and what d'you know... He was able to buy a brand new one of them from De Dolle... It has and always will be in my living room...

Of course... My mate got jealous and contacted them and he was able to buy the LAST GOD DAMN TABLE they stored on some attic from them  :D So this pic is just the best of all worlds for me... Best brewery, best table (thanks da, miss ya heaps), best mate, great beer  :)

Dolle Brouwers Dulle Teve Riserva 2018... Sold out in a mere week.

Quote
Dulle Teve that has been aged on used Massolino Chardonnay white wine barrels for almost 3 years.

@Seul I see a cork (and an opener) and cap in the picture.  Two different items: a beer and a wine?  They aren't corked and capped are they?

I haven't been on here in a bit, so I had to go back and catch up.  @Seul I enjoyed reading your post, great story.  Since it's Friday evening here, I'll post what I'm drinking.

Correcting a shameful failing on my part. I’ve passed one of their taprooms several times a week for ages but have so far not tried anything. Putting it right this evening.
