In fact, the beer that me and my Ridiculous Co-Host x-rated reviewed on this winter evening is so world class rated that it is often considered to be better than the best. (although not everyone agrees as to what the best is.) Too bad much of the prize winning brew ended up on the floor and, as skin moisturizer.
BFM (Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes)- Abbaye De Saint Bon-Chien

There is nothing unusual with the amount of drunk going on in this week's video, I do feel that bold, complex beers like Abbaye De Saint Bon-Chien should be consumed when the palate is more... how shall we say.... primed. Perhaps with less... saturation.
That being said, I'd like to make a point to try this beer again in the future and better analyze the reasoning behind the greatness. What is all the hype? It made me want to vomit. Could have been the Bon Veux, Biere d'hiver and Rouge Double Chocolate Stout I had earlier in the evening trying to leave the stomach party through the front door. Is Saint Bon-Chien is a party crasher? Or the best beer since open fermentation revival?
Until next time, enjoy the antics.
