I know virtually nothing about ciders, but I'd like to learn.

The Tröegenator, in addition to having a terrible name, didn't really do it for me flavorwise. Really weak head, less than a finger, with a nice, deep earthy malt aroma. Full-bodied, dry sweetness, with some bready flavor and a savory finish. The finish also had some unpleasant, lingering buttery/diacetyl things going on that severely cut down on the drinkability for me. I've had much more balanced doppelbocks, for sure.

the -ator suffix is traditional for doppelbocks so you're going to run into a lot of bad names in that area

Celebrator dominates pretty much anything else in the category.

If you're ever in Missoula the k hole makes :

Discombobulator Doppelbock

 "will do as its name suggests, so imbibe with caution. A dark, malty brew  with not much bitterness, it’s the “more” version of a bock - more maltiness, more richness and need I say more?…. 8.5% abv; 28 IBUs

No way.  Optimator's much less complex, to raisiny, not balanced in its sweetness.

Got soused tonight on the 2008 Chardonnay of this fine label:

Rex Goliath - 47 Pound Rooster
http://www.rexgoliath.com/Folklore

The occasion was the 13th Biennial Open House at Berkeley's antiquarian Serendipity Books. Didn't pay a dime for my drunk, which is how the Rooster likes it.

Pollo, I thought of you.

I'm so much more about the Irish whisky than the Scotch these days.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Oh I'm a dude of pretty low ways, so I'll usually just keep a bottle of Jameson or Powers on hand. I like Bushmills Black Bush & 10 year and Red Breast and such, but generally I buy cheaper liquor and spend the difference on better beer. I did buy a bottle of Jameson 12 yr recently and quite liked it.

Hey, I bought a bottle of this as a gift for someone recently! The purchase decision was made entirely on the strength of the label.

Watching Dogtooth last night, I came up with a cocktail I call "The Dirty Greek".  It's a can of weak beer, with a shot of Ouzo mixed in.

You know, I drink probably five days out of seven, but typically only 2-4 beers or one or two cocktails. It's very rare, these days, that I actually tie one on.

Same here.

Somebody asked for Irish whiskey recs. Redbreast is a good place to start.

As for the middle shelf, I've recently decided I much prefer Jameson to Bushmills.

I will also rep for the Jameson if you want to have one of those "hey! where did my legs go?!?" drunk experiences. I had exactly one of these in DC with the bloke some years ago, drinking pints of Guinness and shots of Jameson. We lost a good 45 minutes there, during which the bar staff managed to put all the chairs on the tables except ours without us noticing, and stand around waiting for us to notice, pay the bill and leave.... Not much hangover either, but the usual Guinness shits the next day.

Good man, that friend. I was actually inspired to pick up a bottle of my own last night. I'll join you in an hour.

I live under this group of about four dudes who are literally the quietest undergrad meatheads in the universe. like, they look like they should be blasting AC/DC and doing screaming kegstands every night, but I never hear more than an occasional loud footstep from their apartment. it kind of creeps me out, really; what the fuck do they do up there?

anyway, tonight's the exception: some friend's birthday, and it is loud chants, stomps, and some terrible blaring hard rock that I can't identify. I passed one of them in the hallway earlier (we're the only two units in this building, over a pizza place {?} in Chinatown), and he invited me up to partake of the keg. with the lady out cold on the couch and not much ambition to achieve productive things, I'm halfway tempted.

Go find out, adf!

I'll be here with my Lagavulin, looping Tyler the Creator, if anything's worth reporting.

alas: around midnight, I finally decided I'd head up, and then I looked over at my girl. she drools while she sleeps, and she had a little stream running down her chin onto my couch, and it was the most adorable thing this side of a kitten, so I squeezed next to her, and my joining of the meathead riot was suddenly and irrevocably foreclosed.
