As of 7:50pm Nov. 21, 2008 I am partaking in a Young's Double Chocolate Stout. This crap is the bomb. If Brooklyn is truly better than this...wow.

Tom, chicory is a mellowing agent.

I did not know that.  Odd, I was just talking to my wife about chicory, as it is a flavor enhancer for New Orleans style coffee, and I was wondering if it were available locally in a form that was suitable for adding to coffee.  She did not know the answer.  Does anybody?

Do they still sell Luzianne coffee and chicory?

Commmunity Coffee online sells a 12 oz. bag of chicory to add to your coffee.

Thanks Salty, exactly what I was looking for.  I didn't even know if the product existed.  Think I'll look locally first (Whole foods?) before mail ordering.

WTF is that? The Blood of Christ?

I've tried a bunch of different types of Sam Adams and I have to say its the most generic beer I have ever tasted. I really don't get much out of it except wet.

This is not water - it's incredibly expensive and you can only get it a few weeks a year.

That's one of those beers that Popes drink while picking at pickled parrot tongues served by eunochs on solid gold plates that are then thrown out the window into the river Tiber.  Wet is the only thing it has in common with Bud Light.

For what a bottle costs, it should be, $600 for a bottle http://www.internetwines.com/rws28347.html

No, really, what makes it so special that it needs to be put in the Holy Grail? I've never heard of this stuff before.

You are about to experience the strongest beer ever brewed. With an alcohol content of 25% by volume, we've broken our own record set by Sam Adams Utopias MMII in 2002. Beer enthusiasts have never enjoyed a beer like Sam Adams Utopias. When served at room temperature in a two-ounce serving, Sam Adams Utopias is an ideal after-dinner drink. Pour it into a wine glass or brandy snifter. Note the aroma. Take a sip and enjoy the ideal beer. People have asked what inspired me to brew such a unique beer? Drinkers have long been familiar with light beers. I wanted to show them the opposite end of the beer spectrum. A beer that is strong, rich and dark. Some would say, the ultimate beer. A beer without carbonation, one to be savored slowly. We started by using some of the world's finest ingredients, including all four types of Noble hops, which give the beer its earthy, herbal taste. The hops also add a spicy note. Carmel, Vienna, Moravian and Bavarian smoked malts add a rich amber color.  A variety of yeast were used during fermentation, including the same yeast used in champagne. As a result of this unique brewing process, this flavorful, slightly fruity brew has a sweet, malty flavor that resembles the deep, rich grape taste of a vintage Port, fine Cognac or old Sherry. This limited edition ale has been aged in Scotch, Cognac and Port barrels. Your bottle of Sam Adams Utopias has been packaged in a unique, collectible copper-finished brew kettle decanter reminiscent of the brew kettles used by brewmasters for hundreds of years. We have produced only 8,000 bottles of Sam Adams Utopias in 2003 to be enjoyed by a select audience of better beer drinkers.

Cheers,

Jim Koch, Brewer and Founder

Who would have thought that a brewery trying for the first time to make a spirit, working with beer ingrediants, wouldn't be able to make a product as good as a distillery making the same thing for generations
